Animal Rights Party to Elect Members to Dutch Parliament

Anti-humanity is on the march in the Netherlands. On one hand they permit the increasing killing of sick, disabled, and depressed human beings, but are on the verge of supporting the Animal Rights Party to the extent that these radicals will find representation in the Parliament. The goal of the ARP? A constitutional amendment guaranteeing animals to freedom from pain, fear and stress caused by humans. The party leader compared the movement to the cause to end human slavery.

Can you imagine the justified uproar if someone defended slavery based on Africans having the same moral worth an animals? But, in a sense, the animal liberationists are saying the same thing; that all humans are akin to animals. In other words, they deny a hierarchy of moral worth, meaning we are just another animal in the forest. And if that ever becomes our self-perception, that is precisely how we will act.
