The Distant Ocean Screams
Can you imagine what he will do to factory farmed animals? Take a look at what our hip, left, leader is doing to whales.
If you can stand the typical left, anti Semitic, Jew hating lies in support of Arab patriarchal thugs Distant Ocean is a good blog on other issues. Warning:women's rights do not exist there. But on other issues, it is interesting. For instance:.
From the Distant Ocean blog
Just got this email from Phil Radford, executive director of Greenpeace USA (my emphasis throughout):
I cannot believe that I am writing you this letter ...
The international ban on commercial whaling, which Greenpeace fought tirelessly to pass in the 1980’s, is now in critical danger of being overturned.
A proposal has been put forth at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) that would not only reinstate commercial whaling around the world, it would legitimize Japan's "scientific" slaughter in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. Nearly 25 years of protection for the whales could be tossed out the window if this proposal passes at the next IWC meeting in June 2010.
Shockingly, the Obama administration’s representatives at the IWC actually support the deal to reinstate commercial whaling and are urging other nations to do the same. The delegates say that their directive comes directly from President Obama himself.
Got that? The directive comes directly from President Obama himself. I say again, the directive comes directly from President Obama himself. Let me just repeat that the directive comes directly from President Obama himself. We're clear on that, right? Because it will be important later. OK, onward:
In light of this unexpected and deeply disturbing news, Greenpeace is gearing up for one of the biggest battles that the war against whaling has ever seen. This is an "all hands on deck" moment, to say the very least.
Never did I imagine that we would be defending the whales from President Obama - a man who inspired so much hope in our hearts for a green and peaceful future; a man who promised Greenpeace he would help strengthen the commercial whaling moratorium.
During the presidential race, then-Senator Obama gave this response to a Greenpeace questionnaire dated March 16, 2008: "As president, I will ensure that the U.S. provides leadership in enforcing international wildlife protection agreements, including strengthening the international moratorium on commercial whaling. Allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable."
If President Obama is serious about his commitment to protecting ........
forget this part - waste of time --Bo is as serious about his campaign promises as he is about women's rights. The top heavy with males environmental movement should stop humping BO's leg and get back to organizing -- in fact they should take their lead from Watson at Sea Shepherd who knows how to deal with the murderous ocean rapists.
Distant Ocean agrees: You recall that the directive comes directly from President Obama himself, right? Because it was apparently easy to forget, as Radford did halfway through his own letter when he asked "if President Obama is serious about his commitment to protecting the whales" and then chose the adjective "clumsy" for the pen stroke (as though Obama's imaginary hand just, you know, slipped or something).
Now, I get that it's often hard to believe in betrayal, even as you feel the knife slicing into your back; I really do. I'm sure we've all been through that kind of painful realization. Nonetheless, it takes a moment of serious cognitive dissonance to start out a letter noting that US delegates are acting on Barack Obama's direct orders, and then follow it up by asking if Obama is serious about his commitment to the exact opposite of what he's currently doing. It's at least good that Radford is learning an important lesson here; I'm just sorry that he and millions more like him have to learn it over and over and over again.
Distant Ocean and Greenconsciousness ask you to sign the petition anyway because threats to not vote work and because ...........
I do encourage you to follow Radford's request to [sign the petition](though you'll probably want to replace the prepared text)—not because it has any chance of changing the outcome, but because I always feel there's intrinsic value in registering dissent.
While Greenpeace in begging BO to please please honor his words to those who elected him, SEA SHEPHERD is risking their lives on the Ocean placing their boats between the whalers and the whales. Donate what you can to the Sea Shepherd.
