Let the Political Games Begin

FEB 08, 2012

Winter tends to be the season of meetings for the agriculture community. It also is the time of year that legislative agendas are in full swing. Each state has a different legislative schedule. In Illinois, we are at the beginning of the spring session, which keeps me knee-deep in mind-numbing reading material.

One of my loyal blog readers reminded me that I have been quite quiet lately. It is true that my blogging activity has been low due to a heavy meeting agenda, but I will never be silent.

In the spirit of the political atmosphere, it is necessary to take a closer look at the political games of extreme animal rights groups: the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), People for the Ethnical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the Farm Sanctuary. The goal of these organizations is to veganize Americans, asking everyone to give up all those delicious juicy hamburgers/pork chops/cheeses/eggs to save the planet. They look for an emotional plea, changing the message for each audience and using the weakest link to accomplish their  organizations’ true agenda: not to support the local animal shelter (a great cause) but to end animal agriculture.

Do Not Feed the HSUS Monster |

Do Not Feed the HSUS Monster |

As the year quickly draws to an end, the charities creatively seek your extra dollars in hopes you have the need to lower your federal and state taxes by giving to some very worthy causes. Although the time is clicking away to get your 2011 donations completed, I suggest that you investigate how each dollar of a charitable organization is actually spent.

If you are a loyal reader of my blog, you are quite aware that I do not support charitable organization that use Celebrities and expensive campaigns to mislead you on how the actual dollars collected are spent. What organizations like Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) do not tell you is the organization’s hidden agenda is to End Animal Agriculture. That is correct- the real goal of the organization is not to allow farmers and ranchers to raise livestock.
Putting that known fact aside, I want to explain why you should not support the HSUS with one dollar. Do not buy one of those cute T-Shirts with your favorite dog on the front or pledge to be a HSUS Humane Hero. In fact all the dollars collected by HSUS goes to the big scheme and very little go to the actual local shelter.
