A Green Terrorist?

Thanks to CBC we have this interesting animal rights fellow:

In the past, Vlasak has spoken on behalf of such radical groups as the Animal Liberation Front, which the FBI considers a terrorist threat.

He once told an animal rights conference that killing research scientists would save lab animals from experiments he considers cruel.

"If these vivisectors were being targeted for assassination, and call it political assassination or what have you ... strictly from a fear and intimidation factor, that would be an effective tactic," he said.

"I don't think you'd have to kill, assassinate too many vivisectors before you would see a marked decrease in the amount of vivisection."

Wow thats extremism for ya. There animals man get over it. They may be cute but researching on lab animals and seal hunting is just good to go. Too be fair his Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has some decent points. I mean protecting our oceans and making sure we are substainable is very important. They seem to be a solid organization but Im not sure that going after the Canadian seal hunt will help their cause.

Certainly when one of their leaders advocated murder of humans to stop a legal and controlled cull of seals; (albeit controversial and worth debating) is counterproductive because the media will and has jumped on it (and rightly so). Although I have not heard much in the mainstream media about death threats and hate speech that comes from far-right sites such as Little Green Footballs.

Those green terrorists are pussies! It’s all about the "Finish Eco-Fascism!" Here is one of my favourite quotes from the man with the plan: Pentti Linkola.
“A fundamental, devastating error is political system based on desire. Society and life are been organized on basis of what an individual wants, not on what is good for her.”
“In this time and this part of the World we are heedlessly hanging on democracy and parliamentary system. Even though these are the most mindless and desperate experiments of the mankind.”
“Our only hope lies in strong central government and uncompromising control of the individual citizen.”
