Outrage Times Two

If all the dots mentioned in this story can be connected then we're seeing the equivalence of the new brown shirts of America:
After the story about the puppy sale ran in the newspapers and on TV newscasts, three dog wardens from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture showed up on Brown's doorstep for a kennel inspection.

And they showed up again and again for four visits over four months.

She said she has also received death threats from animal activists against her and Biden, which were reported to the Secret Service and the FBI.
All for publicly selling a German Shepherd puppy to Vice President Joe Biden, who gave it to his granddaughters for Christmas. Their outrage has nothing to do with this, it's most likely an offshoot of this:
But, by changing its name, the band could raise awareness at every tour stop of the "cramped, filthy conditions" that breeders keep animals in before selling them to pet stores, PETA said in its letter
The CNN story reminds of a former PETA campaign to rename fish to 'sea kittens' so people wouldn't want to eat them anymore. Yes, most of them are in need of shrinks but the problem is they're becoming large enough from donations to evidently ruin people with whom they disagree instead of just disagreeing, a sort of vigilantism not even espoused by noted nutballs like Glenn Beck.

Maybe for the guys it's the nudity, which is compelling (most guys would never become liberals if it weren't for the chicks) but they're nothing but modern day sirens.

Isn't it time for 'Don't mess with Joe' to get down and funky and show some support for this poor breeder?

You'd think he'd do it just to distract from the Rove calling him a liar story.

But as I think about it more, I have to say: silly me. Like the upcoming tea parties, the MSM is probably not covering it.

I may overdoing the outrage here, but when an advocacy group can actually act to harass a legitimate business owner evidently through friendly contacts in the state govt, who refuse to give up the names of those lodging complaints, we've come to a precipice.

It has always been my belief that whenever a society comes to a precipice, the least it can do is throw itself off.

That's what I intend to do as soon as become a new democrat and achieve a leadership position; my last words will be, "Follow me."

Yes, these are the measures I'm willing to take on behalf of my fellow citizens. I hope you unappreciative bastards will one day acknowledge my sacrifices for the greater good.
