Sea Shepherd anti-whalers now labeled 'pirates'

"A court in the US has labelled conservationist group Sea Shepherd "pirates".  Judge Alex Kozinski said the group's "aggressive and high-profile attacks" on Japan's whaling fleet endangered lives, ordering them to stop. US-based Sea Shepherd has for many years chased the Japanese whalers, attempting to disrupt the annual hunt.  The two sides have frequently clashed at sea, blaming each other for collisions and damage."

Honestly I've never seen their show, all I know is they managed to fuck up one of their own boats being stupid. Aside from that I thought they'd settled on being merely obnoxious.

Good. In the spirit of this development these fools should be hung by the neck until dead.

Whaling is technically illegal under international laws that Japan is nominally signed to. Japan gets away with it under the "scientific research" loophole that allows whales to be killed for research. In years, no significant  research has come out of Japan, but whalemeat keeps showing up on the market. it's murder of an intelligent life form for no actual reason beyond using it for meat that barely anyone eats anymore, and as a puerile way to show their independence from Western norms. The hunt costs more than any profit they make at this point. It's sheer idiocy. And they're criminals?

Whaling is a bad thing, but there are right ways to go about ending it, and there are wrong ways to go about ending it.   When you're trying to stop whaling by sinking the whaling ships and thereby killing the people on them, then yes you're a menace. When you attack a search and rescue operation, and don't assist them after you've fucked it up, you're a menace. Sea Shepard is the obvious aggressor here. You can't, as a private citizen, attack someone conducting illegal fishing any more than you can rough-up someone for parking in a handicapped parking space. These people should have been classified as a menace a long time ago. Good riddance.

I'm not too concerned about the environmentalists hurting the poor whalers: they operate in fleets, they have lifeboats, they knew what they're getting into, and their managers know what they're doing is illegal. They knew the risks. All they have to do is stop whaling, and everything ends peacefully.

They should start wearing traditional pirate clothing. It'd be the best whale wars ever!

There should be a national database that prohibits PETA members from using any drug or other products that involved animal testing in their development. Now if the PETA people want to volunteer in place of the animals I say go for it. I don’t believe some of those people even like animals.

"With the ending of animal experimentation, a great evil will be lifted from the earth, which will have untold and far-reaching benefits for health and the life on this planet"

I am shocked at the callousness of people who still support the torture of animals in the name of research. Animal testing is outdated, unnecessary and cruel beyond belief.

Buy that beanie before they are declared a "terrorist organization" and you can be jailed for contributing..
