The Humane Society of the United States fund-raising spots are still on Rush Limbaugh’s Web site, so let’s suggest he look at this mighty fine report from an Atlanta TV station on just what it is they do with their money (click here to view report).
The report says they spent $112 million in 2007, the vast majority of it on their animal rights legislative agenda.
It’s a short video and I could watch in even on my mighty slow Internet satellite hookup. But it will show you why I’m so concerned about Mr. Limbaugh’s conversion to the left side on the issue.
He’s going to raise them a zillion bucks, and they’re going to use it to legislate animal agriculture out of business, and Mr. Limbaugh will have to give up his Allen Brothers steaks. He’s so right on so many issues, you’ve got to wonder why he is so not right on animal rights.
I agree with you Steve now. He should not be supporting their funding. Some of Humane Society activities are good, but many for animal agriculture are not - those people simply do not understand animal agriculture and refuse to learn.
Its true, Rush is right on a lot of issues related to our economy and national policies in general. As an individual that with no formal education that can outwit any think tank PhD or a Harvard educated president, I don't see why he threw his support behind this group.
Rush is only concerned about his ratings.........He has been loosing it for a long time. Where are the Animal Health companies,and the rest of the agriculture organizations in fighting these loons? It is time for ALL agriculture Organizations to have a Summit Meeting to develop strategy to defeat this enemy........what part of WAR do these companies not understand? Food and non-food animal agriculture and crop production is under attack!
