In case you haven't heard, WSB-TV Atlanta aired a telling expose last week on the deceptively named Humane Society of the United States. Unfortunately, after only 24 hours of that airing, all mentions of that piece were removed from the station's website.
Whether the HSUS turned their lawyers loose on the station with threats is being speculated. The video made an appearance on YouTube garnering tens of thousands of hits before being removed due to "copyright" issues. Yeah, right. It was more than likely removed due to "bank account" infringement.
If the mighty HSUS is trying to do "damage control", they are doing a piss poor job of it. Wayne-O desperately tried to explain in his blog that the Hurricane Katrina money was used to help those animal victims ...What he FORGOT to mention is that not a dime in Katrina money was spent until AFTER the Louisiana Attorney General launched an 18 month investigation into just where that $34 million in donations went. So, the lying HSUS went in and donated a paltry sum to build a new animal shelter. Big fat hairy deal, Wayne. Unless that shelter cost $34 million, the HSUS has still got a LOT of 'splainin' to do!
The damage has been done. The truth was uncovered and now MILLIONS of United States donors (and would be donors) know of the HSUS deception in fundraising all in the name of "saving the animals".
So, how can we make sure that millions MORE people see that infamous video?? By cross-posting the following links to every email list, by sending it to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, AND LEGISLATORS! It turns out this video is alive and well on an Iranian (GO FIGURE!) video sharing site. (Many thanks to Walt on Pet-Law for providing these valuable links!)
The PetPac copy of the transcript of the broadcast, including the statement that PetPac has been told to take the transcript down:
The high definition (55 meg) version on Vidoosh, an Iranian video sharing site:
A smaller version (9 megs) in Windows media format (.WMV) on USENDIT:
A still smaller version (8 megs) in .MOV format. This is the quickest of all to view if you have only dial up service.
If YOU want to continue to be able to enjoy eating meat, owning pets, hunting, fishing, and to PROTECT your rights with regards to such activities, then it is imperative that the truth continues to be told and shared.
WSB is the first tv station with the intestinal fortitude to expose the deception at HSUS. The non-profit Center for Consumer Freedom has given a HUGE boost to the cause of protecting our rights as dog owners and breeders by helping to expose the hypocrisy. In addition to spreading this post far and wide, you can help with the next phase of the HSUS undoing by donating what you can to the CCF to help with the making of a HSUS documentary that WON'T be pulled and buried on the internet!
That's right, that little "disappearing video expose" was just the beginning...ain't life a bitch.
