Animal Rights Nutcase Wants to Kill Republicans
According to left-wing looney Roland Windsor Vincent, the only good Republican is a dead Republican. In an essay filled with the kind of whacky reasoning you can only find among American liberals, Vincent makes his case for the extermination of every conservative in the country.
“The enemy of animals and the environment is capitalism,” writes Vincent. “And capitalism is the status quo. It is defended by Republicans and conservatives.”
Ah, that’s interesting. Have Democrats officially turned their backs on capitalism, then? Is that part of the party platform now? Someone should update Hillary Clinton’s website so her supporters know exactly what they’re voting for.
Alas, even Clinton would probably scratch her head at some of Vincent’s off-kilter ideas. She may be deceptive, manipulative, and full of secrets, but she’s not certifiable. She would not, for instance, probably support Vincent’s contention that “the animals need a massive depopulation of the human race.” And although her life would be a lot easier if she didn’t have those pesky Republicans to worry about, she would likely not say something like this:
If we were to start shooting Republicans, we would likely not harm a single friend of animals or the environment. Of course, such a course of action would be inadvisable. It would land us in prison and galvanize public opinion against the movement.
While it’s good to see that Vincent has at least considered the folly of mass murder, it’s disturbing that the only thing holding him back is the harm it would do to his “movement.” Apparently if murder was made legal and he could garner some political support, he would be perfectly fine with wiping out half of the American population. More than half, probably, since Vincent seems to consider anyone who doesn’t practice a vegan lifestyle to be “expendable.”
It’s hard to get too worked up about one random lunatic, but one can’t help but wonder how long it will be until this kind of sentiment arrives in the mainstream. Because that’s always how these things happen. When it starts, it’s just a few fringe kooks. Ten, twenty years down the line, you have presidential candidates casually dropping these ideas into their official platforms. It may seem a stretch to imagine a mainstream Democrat calling for the murder of Republicans, but it’s easy to see veganism become a moral imperative for the left. Sin taxes on meat-eaters? Yeah, that’s very easy to imagine.
What Vincent doesn’t get is that hunters and fishermen – a largely conservative population – are among the best friends wildlife and habitat have in this country. One random hunter has probably done more for conservation than a hundred PETA members. Instead of targeting Republicans, Vincent should consider tackling overpopulation a little closer to home. What could be more admirable, after all, than taking your carbon footprint down to zero?
