HSUS Shows Its True Colors

The newest blog manifesto by Wayne Pacelle, animal-savior-in-chief at the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), is just a reminder that HSUS has more in common with PETA than with your local animal shelter. Pacelle writes: Gourmet magazine is reporting that people are reducing to some degree their consumption of meat products. Given the inordinately high per capita consumption of animal products in America, this is good news for animals, the environment, and public health. The HSUS is a big tent organization, and we support people who want to switch to more humanely raised animal products, reduce the amount of meat in their diets, or try a vegetarian lifestyle—but the reduction of meat consumption is one of the best things we can do for the planet given how unsustainable the current levels of factory farming are. For a so-called “humane society,” HSUS sure seems concerned with what you eat. Pacelle's 'Go Veg' blog posts make it easy to see beyond his group's feel-good name: HSUS’s real agenda has precious little to do with helping shelter animals and a lot to do with advancing the fringe goals of animal-rights activists...CFCF

I've just joined the battle and written a couple of pieces on the HSUS and PeTA. If you are so inclined I would appreciate a link post to them to help spread the word.
