    How is it that seemingly normal folks have endorsed, voted for lunatics? Animals...the same as human beings????
    Ecologists have warned that the consideration that we show to different species often depends on how cute we find them, or how aesthetically pleasing. Things We Like: Human Preferences among Similar Organisms and Implications for Conservation | ResearchGate






    1. Recall the old joke: “My family had a petting zoo for folks who like animals, and a heavy petting zoo for folks who REALLY like animals.” Not quite so funny is that Obama-selected Princeton University bioethicist Peter Singer wrote a book called “Animal Liberation,” considered to be the founder of the animal rights movement. Animal Liberation at 30 by Peter Singer | The New York Review of Books

    a. “…despite obvious differences between humans and nonhuman animals, we share with them a capacity to suffer, and this means that they, like us, have interests. If we ignore or discount their interests, simply on the grounds that they are not members of our species, the logic of our position is similar to that of the most blatant racists or sexists who think that those who belong to their race or sex have superior moral status, simply in virtue of their race or sex, and irrespective of other characteristics or qualities.” Singer, work cited.

    2. But Singer goes a good deal further, encouraging bestiality, having sex with animals: “bestiality…ceases to be an offense to our status and dignity as human beings.”
    Now, here I’d like all to consider the connection of this view to all Leftist doctrines: neo-Marxism is an avowed enemy of Judeo-Christian tradition. If unable to see the connections here, consider what Singer says here: “The existence of sexual contact between humans and animals, and the potency of the taboo against it, displays the ambivalence of our relationship with animals. On the one hand, especially in the Judeo-Christian tradition — less so in the East — we have always seen ourselves as distinct from animals, and imagined that a wide, unbridgeable gulf separates us from them. Humans alone are made in the image of God.”
    Heavy Petting, by Peter Singer

    a. Singer, part of the Obama administration, is rife with the lunacy of all Leftism. He states that, as racism is unjustifiable, so, then, is speciesism.






    3. Understanding the above also explains why the theory of evolution is so essential to Leftism. If Leftists can prove to the population that, contrary to religious doctrine, we are just another species in the biosphere, then they can be convinced that we need not treat other people any differently than any animals.

    4. John Holdren- did I mention Obama picked him to be ‘Science Czar’?-well, check this out:
    “John P. Holdren’s advocacy for a global planetary regime to enforce forced abortion, government `seizure of children born out of wedlock, and mandatory bodily implants designed to prevent pregnancy, Obama’s top advisor also called for,”Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods.” Holdren notes that the proposal to forcibly mass sterilize the public against their will “seems to horrify people” and yet it doesn’t seem to bother him too much.
    Ehrlich, Ehrlich, and Holdren, “Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment,” http://www.as.wvu.edu/biology/bio463/EHLRICH1.PDF
    This is what an Obama vote empowered. Lunatics.






    5. Notice the pattern? Note how neatly this folds into environmentalism: Environmentalists view mankind as a virus, a disease that must be eradicated. In 2011, the wife of John Holdren’s pal Paul Ehrlich wrote a piece in the LATimes, comparing humanity to cancer: “Perpetual growth is the creed of a cancer cell, not a sustainable human society.”
    Overpopulation: Perpetual growth is the creed of a cancer cell, not a sustainable human society - Los Angeles Times

    6. Singer, Holdren, are hardly the only maniacs in high office. Cass Sundstein, Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama administration, wrote that animals should be given legal standing and could sue humans. The lunatics are running the asylum….and they’ve even elected another lunatic to be President.




    The Left works tirelessly to shatter Judeo-Christian traditions.
    Animals, the same rights as people?
    You don’t have to be much of an artist to know where to draw the line.

    ...People take Bill seriously? :lol:

    Anyway, back to the OP, while that's pretty crazy, wanting something and getting it are not the same thing. So Obama has a few crazies. Bush had Karl Rove. What's the difference between a leftyloon and a rightyloon other than a D or and R next to their name?

    We need to get people like that out of government entirely. Replace them with more sensible people.

    Ah, Peter Singer, a continual font of out of context quotes for Wing-nuts to go Wing-nutty on...

    Four lunatics: Singer, Holdren, Sunstein, Obama.
    But...if you feel left out....add your name.

    None respect human life.


    "...out of context quotes..."
    I notice that you failed to provide the suggested context.
    Must mean that I've framed the debate perfectly.

    "Bush had Karl Rove. What's the difference between a leftyloon and a rightyloon other than a D or and R next to their name?"

    What a juvenile argument.

    Can you provide examples of Rove positing effluvia comparable to the OP?

    No?

    Well, then back to the dumb row.

    Woah, hold on there now, I never said that the people you quoted and Rove are one and the same.

    I'm just pointing out that they're both crazy. Just look at Rove's meltdown during the election for proof of that. Or take a look at the rather insane lengths he went to try and get Mittens elected.

    They're both crazy. Liberals can defend their guys all they want, but it won't wash off the crazy that these people have.

    1. "Woah, hold on there now, I never said that the people you quoted and Rove are one and the same."
    You created a post that reeks of equvalence.......
    I'm trying to hold back...but it's just sttooooo .....sssstttttoooop....

    ...inane.

    2. To criticize what a political analyst does for a living, and has done successfully for years, and say that compares with beliefs such as

    ...endorsing bestiality....

    ....mass sterilization of populations.....


    ...beliefs that animals should have the right to sue human beings.....


    .....and refusing to allow doctors to give medical aid to infants born as a result of a poorly performed abortion.....


    What the heck is wrong with you???


    You must have been in the same emergency room with Michael Sauer, and for the same reason.

    The problem is most sensible people don't want to be in Gov't in the first place. Mostly just Power Hungry Narcissists wanna' be there.

    That's why Gov't is supposed to be as small as practicable.

    No, not really.. but whenever a RWer goes nuts about Singer, it's usually something they take out of context..
