Well folks, the past few days have been very interesting indeed. We’ve had pro-slaughter asstard, Tim Sappington showing us how classy and upstanding slaughterphiles are and we appear to be in the midst of a meltdown courtesy of Slaughterhouse Sue. We also have the usual messed up logic and statements from some of our favorite PSAs. I’m kinda hoping this all comes to a head within the next few days, because once again I am on the road briefly next week. So, even though it’s a day early, let’s get out our fingers and do some pointing and laughing. This week’s edition is brought to you by the letter `H’ for hissy fit.
As we always like to do, I thought we’d open up by checking in with Slaughterhouse Sue. As y’all know, she’s been busy this week laying down the links and losing her shit for all to see. I’m just going to go ahead and call it a full-scale meltdown at this point. Yesterday we took a look at her little fit on Tom Vilsack, complete with urging her minions to ” get those flaming pens out, type those smoking letters…WE NEED A DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE THAT WORKS FOR AGRICULTURE–AND THAT INCLUDES THE HORSE BUSINESS–NOT AGAINST US, for Christ’s Sake, People!” Yup, she just busted out the caplock, so we know how serious she is. As some of you have pointed out, the angrier Suey gets the more she mistakenly burps out tiny shreds of truth and this week has been no different. So far she has admitted they can’t match anti slaughter people one for one and that they aren’t after old horses to slaughter, despite the fact she constantly talks about old horses needing a dignified end. Remember, she thinks slaughter helps horses feel dignified and useful. She has also called Skye McNeil and `American Hero’ and accused all antis of making false claims. She had another shit fit today and I’m going to break it down for you here.
“And here you have yet another perfect example of activist spewing baldfaced, undocumented, LIES, and not even being challenged. This has got to be stopped…”
I’m going to state right here and now, that I welcome Suey to come over on this blog or arrange to debate any of us that advocate against slaughter. We’ve asked for her documentation and facts time and again and other than what she pulls out of her ever-growing ass, she has yet to provide a single thing.
No animal, of any species, processed for food in the U.S. since the days when they had a big, strong, guy with a sledgehammer standing above the knock box in beef plants–and that was a long, long time ago–has been abused the way these activists are alleging horses would be. Ridiculous! Come on media! Do your job! Ask them to document, ask for proof, these people are lying through their teeth and getting away with it. Worse they are swaying public opinion because no one is challenging them!
Yes, come on media! Do your job! We’ll be very happy to provide the facts surrounding abuse in the slaughter pipeline. We are quite happy to provide footage and documentation to any media outlet that requests it. We’re very happy to share what we’ve learned to get the word out. Challenge accepted!
Every one of these plants that are seeking to go into business have gone above and beyond the minimum required to ensure that their operations have the right facilities designed with the unique characteristics of horses, they have trained and professional employees who will performing these critical functions, and they have deliberately and conscientiously gone through all of their food safety plans and humane handling plans to make sure that their management will result in the consistent, and humane handling of horses at every step. They are doing this, not just because it is the ethical and moral way to handle animals, which it is, but also because that is how they ensure the highest quality finished product that their customers want.
We just saw the CNN footage of Valley Meats and there has been no modifications for horses that were shown. This would be the same plant that currently employs Tim Sappington of the horsey snuff flick that has been widely posted the past few days. He is a fine example of exactly the type of `humane’ workers that will be handling these frightened animals. Very telling that Suey tells us that they have no ethics or morals, but just want to have better quality meat. Pretty much says it all, no?
This ain’t rocket science, folks, but it is common sense…something that is sadly lacking in our world today, I am afraid…
This creature is clearly delusional and I’m afraid there is no cure. She further went on to rant about how horses are killed:
What does that tell you? It tells you that the bullshit line we keep seeing being spewed by HSUS et al – “horses are difficult to stun and are rarely successful on the first shot, and they are sometimes strung up and dismembered whiles still conscious” – is exactly that…BULLSHIT! And nobody is challenging them or asking them to document and prove their fallacious misinformation. Makes me furious!!!!
She’s so professional! Actually, yes there is more than enough video footage of horses being shot in the face several times, strung up while conscious and bled out. Challenge away, we’ll provide you the links. She also busted the bible out on us all for good measure:
That is, in fact, NOT the case. There was no prohibition on Christians eating horsemeat until Pope Gregory in the Year 1000, in which case the reason was he wanted to keep horses for war, and not have people eating them. The Icelandic people refused to become a Christian nation until they won a special dispensation from the Pope in that year to continue to eat horses, and they do so today. Note–there are NO unwanted starving horses in Iceland, because there is a good use for all of them. Then, please refer to the New Testament and the words of Jesus himself declaring all words clean – Mark 7:19 – for instance. http://www.gotquestions.org/foods.html
You know what else there isn’t a lot of in Iceland? Horses or people. (http://www.pferd-und-fleisch.de/Horsemeat/iceland.htm) While we’re talking about the bible, perhaps Suey should take a closer look what they have to say about gluttony…Since Suey is so convinced we all lie and have no documentation of fact to back up our position, I will state officially that any time, any where there are many of us quite happy to have a moderated debate with Suey and we’ll bring the documentation. I would love to see her documentation to back up her lies. Let’s make this happen people! Phone in radio show? Give me a time and place. Pick your Anti, Sue…we’ll make it happen. I’m just not going to do it Jerry Springer style and be in the same room as her because she’ll probably slap me and I bruise easy.
Ok, let’s move right along to the ass barnacles. Holy Theresa Manzella has basically been creeping around behind closed doors being Suey’s cheerleader and spreading her messages of hate an intolerance at any given chance. What she hasn’t been doing much of is updating her rescue’s website or actually rescuing any horses. I am guessing her exotic kitties have enough to eat right now and she’s waiting until slaughter re-opens so she can turn rescues over faster. Just a guess though. D-bag has not been as active as in recent weeks, but he’s still been dropping his pearls of wisdom here and there. Other than getting his rocks off talking about killing wolves, he took the time to once again discuss his rescue/rehab/slaughter emporium he dreams of opening right in his own backyard. (http://rtfitchauthor.com/2013/03/21/predatory-horse-slaughter-pimp-plans-kill-plant-and-rehab-on-same-site/) (http://www.eastoregonian.com/news/local_news/slaughter-rehab-for-horses-on-same-site/article_4e842b9a-91e2-11e2-b62d-0019bb2963f4.html?success=2) It’s essentially the same thing he’s discussed before and it will come at an estimated cost of $3million. Yup, the very same organization that can’t come up with a few hundred dollars to refund their cancelled Scummit fees, is going to somehow find millions to start this facility in a place where nobody wants them. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a brain cell on Bute…
*sigh* I guess we should touch on the doings of Mendy Tobiano since we’re pointing and laughing. As I mentioned yesterday, she did a premature victory dance over the pending legislation in Oklahoma that would lift the an on horse slaughter. The good news is we may have finally managed to partially drive her and her three followers underground as she opened the NT forum so the slaughterphiles have yet another place to discuss what great horse abusers they all are and how mean us Anti people are. However, one of my favorite brain farts of hers over the past little while was when she used an anonymous guest poster to discuss rescues and slaughter. She reposted a research paper originally written by Kristine Kobernic, who is the sometime executive director and founder of SOSER aka Save Our Souls Equine Rescue out of Minnesota. I say `sometime’ because Kristine has stepped down and back up as director at least once over the past few months due to some sort of personal drama. While SOSER does not officially take a pro or anti slaughter stance, Kristine, herself has admitted to trying horse meat in the past and is a frequent supporter of NT under a pseudonym. How do I know she is the author behind the research paper (which was poorly written to begin with)? Because Mendy Tobiano forgot to change all the names in the paper she posted and SOSER is clearly named at least once. This would also be the same rescue that thinks Angela Marshall, the woman who sent her three-legged lame horse to Canada to be slaughtered rather than put him down, is an acceptable foster placement. Kristine has also been seen to post in other places that she believes we need to bring back slaughter for at least 10 yrs and then phase it out. I only mention these things because NT and all the PSAs constantly demand that rescues have transparency. A big thank you to Mendy Tobiano for putting this rescue back on our radar! In other news NT has informed us that killing and eating horses is really no different from abortion as far as rights go. Let’s hope she doesn’t suggest we start eating fetuses, but at this point nothing would surprise me.
So many people are appropriately shocked and outraged over the Tim Sappington video I posted yesterday. It has been removed from Youtube, but several groups have saved it. There is an edited version floating around with a description and the graphic portions removed. As one of our readers commented on that post, Valley Meats is attempting to disassociate themselves from him and claim he no longer works for them, although this statement came from them earlier today:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VALLEY MEAT COMPANY, LLC – For further information contact A. Blair Dunn, Esq. at
VALLEY MEAT STATEMENT REGARDGING TIM SAPPINGTON
Valley Meat Co. does confirm that Mr. Sappington does work doing maintenance for Valley. We have seen the video showing Mr. Sappington euthanizing a horse for slaughter which we understood he did as was his legal right for his own consumption and in which he did complete the processing for consumption. We agree that his comments were regrettably crass, not
contributing anything to this dialogue so we do not condone his statements, but he was within his lawful rights to slaughter and butcher a horse and he was not acting as an employee of the company in that action. The emotion of the situation is what is most troubling especially since the opposition is now resorting to terrorist tactics by calling in bomb threats and death threats
against our families. And while Mr. Sappington’s personal comments are inappropriate they pale in comparison to threatening to bomb people and kill their families. We respectfully request that the media and the public remember that we are discussing the processing of horses as livestock
and no animal is worth threatening or ending a person’s life.
So there you have it. Don’t make threats people. You just play into their hands. There are legal and effective ways to deal with these poor excuses for human beings. Make calls and make this go viral. There have been contacts from media outlets regarding this video and I’m reasonably sure it will get the attention it deserves, if not the sort of attention he was seeking. Hopefully, that horse’s execution will not have been in vain, but let’s do this properly. For the record, the horse as not killed cleanly, nor was he bled out. This was not an old or sick horse like they claim they will use and the horse appeared to be quite friendly and quiet. Certainly not an outlaw. It was hardly just a good ole boy butchering up some meat. The manner and place in which this animal was executed would have rendered him useless for consumption for most, but I”m guessing people like Sappington probably eat roadkill as well so no big deal for him.
This brings us to the end of Point and Laugh for this week. I’m sorry it’s not all that amusing, but right now things just aren’t all that amusing. We have yet to see Suey address the EU ban on horse meat slaughtered in the US, I’m not holding my breath that we ever will. As evidenced by the Valley Meat statement above, the PSAs just can’t seem to own their evil or address inconvenient truths. My offer still stands, I will be most happy to go toe to toe with Slaughterhouse Sue and we’ll bring out the facts and documentation. I also know of several advocates far more articulate and qualified than I am that would be happy to do the same. What say you, Suey?
