Yes, We’re Preaching to the Choir, but the Sermon Is Sweet

Nation's Restaurant News is the biggest trade-press publication for people in, well … the restaurant business. It has a readership of over 400,000 people, and the current issue includes an essay about HSUS by our Executive Director. Here's a little bit of what he has to say:

Numbers don’t lie: HSUS’s 2008 tax return shows $450,000 for hands-on shelters, and $2.5 million for pensions.

This means two things. First, the save-the-chickens movement insiders in HSUS’s top ranks plan to be hassling you long enough to retire on their laurels. And second, they’re getting cocky.

HSUS president Wayne Pacelle and his vegan cabal surely understand that Americans wouldn’t be so eager to donate $100 million every year if they understood the group’s real agenda.

I don’t know about you, but if I donated money to help some puppies find a new home, I’d be pretty ticked off to learn that I was actually bankrolling a lobby that wants to put ranchers and medical researchers out of business, ban hunting and fishing, and give hogs the legal right to sue farmers …

HSUS does not exist to help abandoned pets, and its donors are slowly but surely getting the joke. Radical extremism is alive and well in America—and some of the ringleaders wear suits.
