Those Damn Extremists

UW Madison's apologist for all terrible things done to animals in the name of money, excuse the slip, science, was miffed by my observation that on many issues the "extreme" view is the only moral one. You can read my original post here, and his confused denial of this plain truth here. He'd rather that people with strong views different from his not speak loudly enough to be heard. I'd be shocked if I didn't know who he was or his history of trying to keep the public in the dark. [Here, here, and for a laugh, here.]

[It's a real knee-slapper to me that he sees himself and his cronies as holding a middle position on hurting animals and that he thinks of himself as someone willing to compromise.]

Unless you live in a cave, you've heard by now at least someone lionizing Nelson Mandela. In fact, even UW Madison professors have joined in.

This must be troubling to the vivisectors who try so hard to use "extremism" as a cudgel to turn the curious away from careful thought about what they do to animals.

Up until 2008, the U.S. government considered Mandela a terrorist. See US government considered Nelson Mandela a terrorist until 2008, NBC News.

Apparently, Sandgren would have argued in 2007, that Mandela ought not be allowed to be part of the public conversation on racial discrimination.

I suspect that more than a few white South Africans would have agreed with him.

For a long time until the internet most of us lived in the dark. There is evil in allot of people, especially so called scientists. Whenever we try to show with videos, documentation to the public they come down hard on activist. Am I an activist or am I someone who cares and does not approve of my tax dollars being wasted on medical tests that do no good for humans. UW is by the far the most evil and egregious facility. They have to invent tests to keep going with animal research. I read on line a few articles reading that there are statements that there is no proof that Abraham Lincoln ever wrote those quotes pertaining to animal welfare/rights. So does that mean George Bernard Shaw, Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Mohandas Gandhi, Paul McCartney and thousands more have never written or said their quotes to. Give it up researchers of animal torture you can’t disprove everything, but we can…..
