These are some quotes from the PSA crowd. They give a pretty good idea of the mentality it takes to support slaughter. Their quotes come from various sources and are posted exactly as they were originally posted.
” I would just like to announce that according to fuglyblog.com and their members who post, I am not only an idiot but that United Horseman is behind the entire blog. MUHAW HAW HAW HAW conspiracy theory much there. To my knowledge, there is not a single person on our team who belongs to UH & I don’t believe Mr. Dave Duquette has ever contributed to it. Interesting isn’t it…”
~ Ironically, this was posted on the United Horsemen Facebook page. You have to join that group to post there.
“Thou shalt not kill applies to animals….” – Theresa Manzella
~Which is why she has a rescue that promotes horse slaughter???????
“Becareful no one sees the horse or you may be the one charged with neglect. Happened to someone I know. He picked up and old show pony stallion and made a pen for it in a corner under the only tree in his pasture. It happened to be by the road. Some do-gooder reported him. The sheriff noted that there were other dead animals on his property (poultry). Not surprising as he drove the local rendering truck!”
~ So people who drive rendering trucks just happen to bring their work home with them? I guess it’s ok to have dead animals lying around as long as it’s only poultry. Did you ever notice how PSAs are often unfairly persecuted for being the fuckwits that they are and don’t understand why?
“Calling all data. The NT is working on the myth of tainted meat. I would like to collect some writings from those of you with hard proof to counter these claims. Your information as to who you are etc will remain private unless you specifically ask to have credit given. Everyone claims you don’t care about horses, come rescue a painted pony here ”
~ This one was from Naughty Tobiano who then proceeded to quote a study meant for drug levels in racehorses. So, not for horses meant to be eaten, but a test so they knew how long to withdraw a drug prior to race time so that the levels of the drug in their systems do not test above the approved level. I guess the plethora of information from the EU didn’t give NT just what she needed to perpetuate her lies, so she felt the need to misuse another study to suit her agenda.
“Yikes!!! I hope my old skinny mare that is eating 18# of Equine Sr a day doesn’t die….I guess they could charge me for cruelty too!!!! She is nursing a big baby and has another on the way…but she looks like the poster horse for the SPCA!!!”
~These are the people who are concerned about horses suffering. Note she mentions the horses is OLD , skinny, nursing a baby and has another on the way. I’m gonna go ahead and say this is a backyard breeder who doesn’t deserve to own a guppy.
“Ok…..I find that MOST of my horses seem a little steep in the shoulder conformationally…..but that creates power houses…..”
~ No, dumbass that does NOT create power houses. Steep shoulders create short strided choppy movers that are pre-disposed to a myriad of soundness issues if you use them too hard. A nicely balanced horse with a big hip will give you power provided you have trained them properly and they have learned to go round and use themselves properly.
“That’s right! Expose them the free trade & commerce, anti capitalistic, Constitution squelching, bible perverting group that they are. What can you say…TRUTH hurts“
~ Holy Mother Theresa Manzella……who runs a rescue that supports slaughter.
“Looks like our House of Reps and Moran or should we say MORON, let their brains fall on the floor again. WY still has state inspection for human consumption!!! Now the llons are happy so more horses can suffer! Please do not give me this over bredding bull shit…….breeding horses of all breeds has dropped dramatically the last 5 years….check the mare reports and registrations. As for all you bunny huggers KISS MY ASS YOU FLIPPIN MORONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
~ Yet another compassionate PSA not fully in control of her emotions.
“Horses will not die in 24 hours without water and food. If that were the case, we would not worry about starvation. It would be finished much sooner than the fate of those starving horses we see today”
~I don’t normally like to play this card, but this statement was made by somebody that I’m willing to wager doesn’t go more than two hours without shoving something down her gullet. That aside, the logic here is that it would be perfectly fine for horses to suffer if they would just do it quickly. This is clearly somebody that has no knowledge of how a horse’s digestive system works and what the consequences of going without food or water for extended periods of time, let alone in hot weather, could mean for the animal. Yet, these are the people who feel they know more than anybody.
“Not so fun fact for the day:Hitler was a vegetarian. And Hitler held animals in very high regard. He even assembled a team of trainers who tried to teach dogs to talk. Killed millions of human beings, but is reported to have revered animals. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.”
~ The most Holy Theresa Manzella talking about animal advocates. The very same woman who hides behind her bible and wants to slaughter her rescue horses.
I could post pages and pages of asshattery from this group. Some individuals deserve an entire page of their own. If there wasn’t so much at stake, this would actually be entertaining. Bring on the next round of `No, you’re stupid’ rebuttals from the PSA front.
