HSUS is once again trying to play the general public in exchange for donations withÂ commercials featuring abused animals and shelters even though they give only a pittance to the local shelters. Â Most of the money raised actually goes to support theirÂ legislative agenda. And if you are a hunter or gun owner, you should be concerned.
In their Obama-themed â€œChange Agenda for Animals,â€ HSUS spells out their goals for the first term of the current administration. The changes reflect an all-out assault on agriculture, meat production, hunting, and even gun rights. The 100-item list doesnâ€™t even include the summary outline of new agency divisions, liaisons, and yes, even a new czar.
In the opening notes, HSUS calls for a new White House specialist, a so-called czar, for animal rights issues. The specialist would work with liaisons on animal rights in at least 20 agencies and departments, including:
- Department of Agriculture
- Department of Interior
- Department of Commerce
- Environmental Protection Agency
- Department of Health & Human Services
- Department of State
- Department of Transportation
- Department of Housing & Urban Development
- Department of Defense
- Federal Trade Commission
- Department of Education
- Department of Justice
- US Agency for International Development
- US Trade Representative
- National Institutes of Health
- Food & Drug Administration
- Centers for Disease Control
- Department of Treasury
- US Postal Service
- Consumer Product Safety Commission
All of this is in addition to a new proposed division of the Department of Justice to prosecute all of these new animal rights crimes, including the taking & sharing of hunting photos, provided the Supreme Court doesn’t step in to stop that particular infringement on the First Amendment.
I guess this agenda fits right in with the administration’s attempt to consolidate decision-making in the White House. Â The specifics, which I’ll break down tomorrow, are pretty horrifying.
