EU Left: Thoughtful, Caring, and Intelligent. Oh, I forgot to mention Graverobbing
The family of an 82-year-old woman whose body was stolen from her grave are to stop breeding guinea pigs for medical research after a six-year campaign of intimidation by animal rights activists.
The Hall family has been subjected to a hate campaign by animal rights extremists. They said that they hoped the decision would prompt grave robbers to return the body of Gladys Hammond, whose remains were stolen from a churchyard in nearby Yoxall.
"The business has continued during a sustained protest from animal rights extremists for six years, which included the desecration of the grave of Gladys Hammond last October. We now hope that, as a result of this announcement, those responsible for removing Gladys’ body will return her so she can lie once again in her rightful resting place.
Some other lovely items employed by the all-knowing, all-caring types:
The campaign of intimidation against the Halls included firebomb attacks, a paedophile smear campaign and the cutting of electricity and phone lines.
Do these cretins explain themselves, oh yeah:
A spokesman for Save the Newchurch Guinea Pigs, who gave his name as Johnny and would not reveal his surname, said: "This is the most fantastic day of my life.
"It’s a victory for the animals and it’s a fundamental victory for the animal rights movement. I feel so unbelievably proud to be part of the movement.
"Ideally, I wish they would close down today and hand them over. We want those guinea pigs out. We want those animals out of there. Such charming and sentient animals should not be incarcerated within windowless sheds."
Johnny, who has been involved in the campaign against the farm from the start, said that he thought it had been the combination of legal and illegal pressure on the farm that had brought about today’s decision.
Asked for his views about the campaign of intimidation, he said: "We do not need to glamorise this sort of activity but Animal Liberation Front activists are intelligent human beings who have a particular mind set. They consider the horrors of vivisection, killing umpteen animals, as being a justification for what essentially is low level criminal damage.
The wonderful radicalists on the left.
Update: The whole laundry list of hate by the left in this case.
