The Visual HSUS, Part 2

Two weeks ago we published the first entry in a new series titled “The Visual HSUS.” Our goal is to start catering to those of you who are visual thinkers. A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes; today we’re releasing words 1,001 through 2,000.

If you thought “HSUS By the Numbers” was a bit overwhelming, you’ll find that today’s visual is on the simpler side. (Click on the image below to view the PDF.)

HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle has a long history in the animal rights movement, going all the way back to his college days. Now that he is the face of the supposedly moderate Humane Society of the United States, he’s been somewhat dodgy when confronted with his past statements—those from his early days, and even those from last year.

Now Pacelle is on tour promoting his book, The Bond. Today’s visual deals with Pacelle’s past and current thoughts about the human-animal bond that inspired the book’s title. It’s hard to reconcile Pacelle’s conception of “the bond” with the sales pitch he’s making for The Bond.

As before, we’ve put today’s visual up on Zazzle if you’d like to purchase postcards or posters. But passing the image on to a friend or posting it in an online forum is the most important thing you can do to advance the causes of truth and common sense in our national animal protection debate.

We’ll be back with another edition of “The Visual HSUS” in just two short weeks. And for more on Pacelle and "The Bond," be sure to check out our parody video.
