Twelve Step Plan To a No Animal Nation: The Animal Rights Agenda

When PETA first came on the scene in the 1980's, the general concensus was "what a bunch of fruitcakes!" The overwhelming majority of animal owners laughed at their nude antics and talk of "Animal Liberation" and "Animal Rights"...INSANE!
We ignored them. We continued on our merry way, going about our day-to-day routines and enjoying our animals and animal related activities. Hunters hunted, fishermen fished, pet owners bought/sold/bred/showed/trained...great advances were made in human and animal medicine. No worries. Life was good. For now.

The ARs told "us" of their plan, their goals...we didn't listen. A nation as great as ours could NEVER allow such lunacy to prevail, right??? NO animal use?, c'mon! NO pets?, "no way!" If only more of us had paid attention to what they were saying...changing the language and playing on human emotion...using "us" to push their socialist agenda : "Guardianship" instead of 'ownership', "don't breed or buy while shelter animals die!", "animals have a right NOT to be eaten!"... Laws were passed while we slept, making it more and more difficult/expensive to own pets...laws were passed villifying hunters...scientists were (and continue to be) ATTACKED for doing important animal medical testing, corporations such as KFC, have been the victims of media- terrorist- tactics aimed at destroying honest businesses...

Honestly, if anyone reading this STILL thinks groups like the HSUS are in it for the welfare of the animals, you need a labotomy. The HSUS is in it FOR THE MONEY. The HSUS and the rest of their ilk are human-haters when you get right down to it. The laws they propose ARE NOT for the benefit of the animals, they are proposed solely for the purpose of promoting their NO ANIMAL USE / VEGAN AGENDA.

So, unless, dear readers, you want to become a nation of tofu burgers on the grill on the 4th of July, unless you DO NOT want a choice as to where your next purebred dog comes is way past time to wake up and JOIN THE CRUSADE.

The following 12 Step plan was published in 1987, when the concept of Animal Rights was as foreign as fuzz on a frog's ass. Look at this list VERY CAREFULLY. ( Over the coming weeks, The Endangered Owner will look at each of these steps individually, so check back.)

Each and every item on that list is being attacked by PETA and the HSUS. And for all of you pet owners out there that STILL do not believe the Animal Rightists want to end ALL PET BREEDING, read item number 10.

From “Politics of Animal Liberation”

by Kim Bartlett,

published in ANIMAL AGENDA, November 1987

1. Abolish by law all animal research

2. Outlaw the use of animals for cosmetic and product testing, classroom demonstration and in weapons development

3. Vegetarian meals should be made available at all public institutions, including schools

4. Eliminate all animal agriculture

5. No herbicides, pesticides or other agricultural chemicals. Outlaw predator control.

6. Transfer enforcement of animal welfare legislation away from the Department of Agriculture

7. Eliminate fur ranching and the use of furs.

8. Prohibit hunting, trapping and fishing.

9. End the international trade in wildlife goods

10. Stop any further breeding of companion animals, including purebred dogs and cats. Spaying and neutering should be subsidized by state and municipal governments. Abolish commerce in animals for the pet trade.

11. End the use of animals in entertainment and sports.

12. Prohibit the genetic manipulation of species.

NOTE: This was written in 1987, long before genetic engineering and cloning. In this context, “genetic manipulation” means selective breeding”

  1. I can't entirely disagree with all of their goals (not all cosmetic testing *has* to be done on animals; vegetarian meals being made available in schools could be a good thing, but in their terms "available" probably means "only option"), but they go a little too far. "Outlaw predator control"? Uh-uh. If a predator - or any wild animal - is an active threat to my family, I'm damned well going to shoot it! OTOH, if it's co-existing with us and isn't trying to kill and eat us, I leave it alone. We share land with bear, coyote, badger, fisher, and fox and have never had a problem. (And yes, the deer and rabbits dine in my garden every summer. Annoying, but I plant extra just for them.)

  2. Excellent blog! I'm a pet owner who used to believe a lot of the points of the animal rights movement until I found out about the goal of abolishing pets altogether. We, as pet owners, need to do our part to make sure our pets and our right to care for them are protected.

  3. Well, I certainly disagree with ALL their goals. Humans were not physically meant to be vegetarians. I cannot imagine a world without animals in our lives. If people don't wake up and understand these animal rights groups are shoving their no animal use agenda down our throats with emotion, lies and twisted facts, we will loose some of the most treasured things in life.

  4. The most upsetting thing about PETA is that most of their propaganda media comes from rare instances of animal mistreatment. They seem to manage to always capture the worst on video and then portray all animals owners, farmers, and breeders and cruel monsters. I wish there was a way to educate people about what occurs the majority of the time in animal production. If breeders don't take extremely good care of their animals they will not produce - therefore most people take the utmost care of all their animals. It only takes one bad apple to spoil peoples preceptions of animal husbandry and unfortunately PETA is alway able to locate the rotteness!

  5. we need to sent a registered letter to the IRS with a request for a audit. In the last 5 years,they have taken in over 500 million or 1/2 of a billion where did all of the money go! if it went on wine women and song or excessive lobbying they should paid taxes just like the rest of us!
    This the united states of american!
