Read the Beliefs of an Animal Rights Fanatic in his Own Words

Jerry Vlasik has justified murder in the name of animal liberation before a senate subcommittee. Here,he goes almost as far when interviewed by an animal liberationists publication. Some key quotes:

“Killing an animal abuser, who is not an innocent bystander, is morally defensible, and if they had the power to do so, animals would do it.”

‘All animal abusers should be politely asked to stop killing animals in their work and explain to them the scientific fraud in animal experimentation, as I was. If they refuse, they should be told to stop immediately, or suffer the consequences. If they still refuse, then they should be stopped by whatever means necessary.”

Admittedly, Vlasik is more radical than most animal liberationist leaders. But he represents a sizeable minority. Note also his seeming desire for there to be a radical reduction in the human population, demonstrating a loose tie-in with the ideology of deep ecology that views humans as vermin on the living planet.
