HSUS Responds to DHS Ecoterrorists Report

Belmar, NJ – -(AmmoLand.com)- I have been contacted by Mr. Michael Markarian, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, HSUS regarding yesterday's alert “DHS Reveals NJ Based Groups Provide Cover for Ecoterrorists.”

Mr. Markarian forwarded a letter from FEMA in which the acting Deputy Administer states,

“HSUS and the Fund for Animals are inappropriately described as having “known or possible links to ecoterrorism,” and as “known or suspected of having financial ties to individuals and groups associated with ecoterrorism.”

The link to the letter follows. In fairness to HSUS, I encourage each of you to read the letter.

The NJOA is committed to forwarding accurate information to our members. We are flattered that our E Action Alerts are monitored by animal extremist groups; it is proof of their concerns about the weightiness of our conservation message.

Since our E Action Alerts have a pipeline to Mr. Markarian I would respectfully ask him to explain to NJOA members the working relationship between the New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance and HSUS.

Evidence of a “link” or “tie” between NJARA and HSUS is articulated by the Director of NJARA in a letter included below.

The Anti Defamation League (the nation's premiere civil rights organization) has reported that the Director, Angi Metler, has acted in the capacity of a press spokesperson to communicate ecoterrorism acts by groups such as ALF and others. Such a position obviously condones ecoterrorism. Mr. Markarian, wouldn't a relationship between NJARA and HSUS be a “tie to individuals and groups associated with ecoterrorism or a “link” to ecoterrorism?”

Furthermore, NJARA acted as a broker to fund the freeing of six extremists from jail – they were convicted of a campaign to terrorize a New Jersey based company along with its employees and shareholders. Coincidently, it was the office of US Attorney Christopher Christie, currently a NJ gubernatorial candidate who convicted the hoodlums.

Upon the judgment Mr. Christie stated, “This is a trial victory of national importance…The verdict reveals these individuals for what they really were: thugs who went far beyond protected speech and lawful protest to engage in and incite intimidation, harassment and violence.”

Here is a link to one of many websites showing NJARA acted as fiduciary to free the convicts known by the acronym S.H.A.C. http://shiftshapers.gnn.tv/blogs/13418/SHAC_6_Found_Guilty_On_All_Charges

Mr. Markarian, below is an email from Ms. Metler of the New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance to various animal extremists and groups looking to eliminate conservation (fishing, hunting and trapping) in New Jersey. This particular email was to derail the prospect of Sundy Bow Hunting in NJ. You'll note that Ms. Metler refers to the relationship between NJARA, HSUS and PETA.

Letter from Director, Angi Metler, NJARA:

Dear All,

“We've been given great advice (thanks, Sue Russell) to get as many contacts from different interest groups, (trail groups, Sierra, Christian, HSUS, etc.) and go public with the press and legislature as soon as possible to combat this…” [Sunday Bow Hunting]…
“NJARA is sending letters to every legislator in Trenton opposing this, sending press releases, reaching out to HSUS and PETA and will continue to write alerts…”
“In the meantime, we need more group names would oppose this. We have the names and numbers of all the groups HSUS used the last time, but we need more…”

“Furthermore, we are also working on the possibility of opening up a chapter of the League of Humane Voters in NJ to work in conjunction with the paid lobbyist and have a meeting set for this coming Sunday to explore this…”

“If you are a representative of a group, please send your own press release out on this issue and please also send out letters to all of the legislators. NJARA can fax these for you once written…”
Thanks in advance for all your help and assistance. Thanks to everyone who has already forwarded our alerts.

If anyone needs to reach me today, please call my cell phone at -/-/–

Angi [Metler]

“We would be foolish and silly not to unite with people in the public health sector, the environmental community, [and] unions, to try to challenge corporate agriculture.” Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US, formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, at the Animal Rights 2002″ Convention, July 1, 2002.

Biography

Wayne Pacelle, CEO, HSUS

In 2004 Wayne Pacelle was named president of the world's richest animal-rights organization, the Humane Society of the United States. Pacelle, a strict vegan, joined HSUS in 1994 after working at the anti-hunting group the Fund for Animals for six years. There he helped Paul Watson and his violent Sea Shepherd Conservation Society raise money for ships. Pacelle's goal is to create “a National Rifle Association of the animal rights movement.” He is in charge of HSUS's many ballot initiative campaigns, winning 17 of the 22 in which he has been involved.

His biggest win was in Florida, where an initiative passed that gave constitutional rights to pregnant pigs. Florida farmers were banned from using “gestation crates.” Many farmers killed their animals as a result and the pork industry in Florida is almost extinct. He plans campaigns against gestation crates in other states, and is already organizing in California and New Jersey. At the 1996 HSUS annual meeting, Pacelle announced that the ballot initiative would be used for all manner of legislation in the future, including “companion animal issues and laboratory animal issues.” These operations, he says, “pay dividends and serve as a training ground for activists.” Pacelle's wife, Kirsten Rosenberg, works for Ark Trust, now the HSUS Hollywood office.

HSUS 2007 Revebue & Dusbursements

According to an Atlanta ABC Affiliate, in 2007 HSUS received $120,000,000 in revenue and expensed $112,000,000 for lobbying, political contributions and staff salaries. According to the report, critics are calling the organization deceptive and intentionally misleading since there is no apparent affiliation between HSUS and local Humane Society centers that care for animals. Additionally, according to the report, HSUS admits a very small percentage of its revenue finds its way to local centers.

Quotes from HSUS, CEO, Wayne Pacelle

“Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting.” Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US (HSUS), formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, (Bozeman (MT) Daily Chronicle, October 8, 1991

“We would be foolish and silly not to unite with people in the public health sector, the environmental community, [and] unions, to try to challenge corporate agriculture.” Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US, formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, at the Animal Rights 2002″ Convention, July 1, 2002.

“We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. . . One generation and out. We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding.” Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP of Humane Society of the US, formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, Animal People, May, 1993

“We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States … We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take it state by state. Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US (HSUS), formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, Full Cry Magazine, October 1, 1990.

About:
NJOA – New Jersey Outdoor Alliance is the state’s first major political action committee devoted to the task of electing outdoor-minded candidates to public office.
NJOA has formed with the support of leaders of major pro-hunting, pro-angling, and pro-trapping organizations. We are not a hunting, fishing, or trapping “club” or “group,” and do not compete with the interests of such organizations. NJOA helps to ensure that strong wildlife and natural resource protection laws are produced by outdoor-minded elected officials. The best way to ensure a “conservation presence” in Trenton is to support the election campaigns of representatives who understand the relationship between a balanced ecology and hunting, fishing, and trapping.
