Animal Liberationist Thugs Harass Wachovia Employees

This is tertiary targeting, and it is now a felony thanks to the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. Thugs from the Animal Liberation Front are targeting employees of Wachovia, Corporation–a financial company–vandalizing their property and otherwise terrorizing them. Why is ALF targeting employees of a financial company? Wachovia owns stock in GlaxoSmithKline, which does business with Huntingdon Life Sciences, that the terrorists want to drive out of business for conducting animal research. Such is the fanaticism that is bred by animal rights/liberation when its primary leadership–Gary Francione excepted–generally refrain from the kind of vigorous criticism against violence and intimidation in the name of the animals that might influence their co-believers to remain peaceful and within the law. Indeed, PETA ludicrously extols these types of actions by likening them to the Underground Railroad’s liberating slaves. Let us just hope that some fanatic doesn’t decide to become John Brown.
