Antifa Website Calls for ‘Slaughter’ of ‘Border Patrol Dogs and their Bosses’

Antifa Website Calls for ‘Slaughter’ of ‘Fascistic Border Patrol Dogs and Their Bosses’

BY DEBRA HEINE SEPTEMBER 21, 2018

In a post Thursday at far-left antifa website Incendiary News, an activist advocated for revolutionaries to rise up and “slaughter” what he called “fascistic Border Patrol dogs and their bosses,” Far Left Watch reported on Friday.

Disturbingly, far-left activists have in recent months become more brazenly militant and violent in their rhetoric on their websites and social media, as PJ Media has documented.

The author of the Incendiary News piece, Ulrike Salazar, likens Border Patrol agents to SS troops who “take away young boys and girls, tear apart families, throw away undesirables into dark and cramped dungeons.

“Then, after decrying all of the so-called atrocities committed by Border Patrol against illegal immigrants, Salazar writes: “This author only hopes that this chapter in American history will also include the moment when revolutionaries rose up with the masses and slaughtered the fascistic Border Patrol dogs and their bosses, slaying them with revolutionary fire and justice.”…

Vietnam′s Dog Meat Culture Clashes With Modern Tastes 

ASIA

Vietnam’s dog meat culture clashes with modern tastes

Vietnamese officials in Hanoi have asked residents to stop eating dog meat, citing health and public image concerns. Vendors and enthusiasts now fear a nationwide ban on what they consider to be a traditional delicacy.

Hoang has been eating dog meat since he was young. He can’t imagine there will be a time that he won’t be eating it at least twice a month. However, Vietnamese officials announced in September that dog and cat meat should no longer be served in the inner districts of the capital city Hanoi because it’s offensive to tourists and can spread diseases like rabies.

Dog meat lovers and restaurant owners fear that the government will try to expand the ban and decide to officially forbid eating dog and cat meat entirely.

“I don’t see how they can ban it. The demand is just too high,” Hoang said at a restaurant in Vietnam’s largest metropolis, Ho Chi Minh City.

In a small alley in Ho Chi Minh City, at least four restaurants serve dog meat, or “Thit cho.” People gather around small tables to dine on the canine meat, complementing it with rice wine or beer.

Hoang, who declined to give his full name, is sitting at a table with three good friends. “For us it’s a tradition to eat dog meat. It’s just as normal as eating seafood or chicken,” he told DW.

It’s a point many Vietnamese people make. For them eating dog meat is no different than eating any other type of meat. Additionally, some Vietnamese believe that eating dog meat by the end of the month will help them to get rid of bad luck gathered in the weeks before. It’s why these types of restaurants are always more crowded when the month comes to an end…

…Tradition vs. international image

The Vietnamese government has a different view on things. Officials in Hanoi say that eating dog meat is damaging the reputation and image of the capital city. They also say that eating the meat could lead to a deadly rabies infection.

In Ho Chi Minh City, authorities are also taking a tougher stand. In September, the city’s largest dog meat market was raided. According to Vietnamese state media, many vendors were fined and a large amount of raw dog meat was confiscated because it came from unknown sources. In Vietnam dogs are often stolen from pet lovers and then sold to restaurants.

Mr. Chien, who didn’t want to give his full name, has been selling dog meat for 10 years in Ho Chi Minh City. He said that pressure on him and his colleagues has grown in the past five years. He needs to be very transparent about where his dog meat comes from.

“All the meat I’m selling comes from a qualified supplier,” he told DW. “I have all the papers and licenses that are necessary. Society has been looking down on us, so I need to have my business as clean as possible,” he added.

His restaurant is a popular establishment in the city. Each month he attracts about 1,000 customers, whom altogether eat about 100 dogs per month. “It’s a business. If there’s demand, then there is supply,” Chien said.

An estimated 5 million dogs are consumed every year in Vietnam. Only China, where roughly 20 million dogs are consumed every year, eats more of “man’s best friend.”

Animal rights activists support a ban on dog meat. They have been campaigning for years to get the controversial dish removed from menus, pointing out that the slaughter of dogs and cats is brutal and that Vietnamese people often fear for the safety of their pets.

Mr. Chien is aware of the resistance to dog meat. He said he will stop selling it if the government issues a ban – but he doubts it will go that far. “I think it’s a tradition that’s been here too long to ban it entirely.”

The Animal Balaclava Mask

SHARON MASK 2

“ANTIFA 365 supporters/protestors wear the ghost face from SCREAM, a series about a killer who hid his identity while committing serial murders, or the Guy Fawkes mask – a stylized depiction of Guy Fawkes who plotted to blow up the House of Lords in Britain. Both masks are donned for the purposes of hiding the wearer’s identity and terrifying those they encounter while masked.” https://happywhitehorse.com/2016/03/13/a-call-to-act/

When people show up at animal rights rallies wearing these masks it gives the cause a bad name, and a further reason for those uninformed to call animal rights supporters terrorists. The optics aren’t conducive to facilitating social change regarding the rights of animals.

The current white/ghost masks cover the entire face, including the eyes and they’re not easy to look at. They make people turn away rather than embrace. It’s human nature to do that.

The Animal BALACLAVA Face Mask, however, is a conversation piece in itself. It’s a door-opener, not a door-closer. They’re cute. They don’t cover the entire face. The eyes are very visible, so nobody’s fearing you. Plus they’re comfortable in cold, windy weather, keeping out the sting of the harsh air.

Instead of wearing a Guy Fawkes or ghost mask to simply scare people without a message attached, which is a hollow free-floating goal, wear the Animal Mask as a symbol of all the animals you seek to protect through your consciousness raising activities. One is a symbol of terror, the other is a symbol of compassion. Some of the animal masks look scary, but with your eyes as part of the costume, the scary melts away the fear of animals that many humans have.

SHINE ON HILLARY

¡HELLO ITS ME!

HILLARY EARNS TITLE OF FIRST WOMAN PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE of major political party.

Enjoy your moment in the sun. With all the privilege the world thought you had because you were white, it took you this long. How old are you?

No one worked longer or harder than you did to finally demolish the ceiling you shattered long ago, a ceiling that should have disintegrated under the pressure of prejudice, a ceiling that was kept from crumbling – till now – by the prejudicial thoughts and actions of all humankind (including women who were taught to discriminate against their own).

The world did not succumb to change. The world embraced the truth, instead of perpetuating the lie that all women are inferior to men in all ways and forever.

The world dispelled that long-standing prejudicial myth that divided humankind. Now we can truly unite as liberation heals the wounds of…

DOXXING – AN ONLINE TERROR TACTIC

“Doxxing is never okay, no matter how repugnant you believe the target might be.”

I agree.

Terrorizing an individual or their families through social media, by providing their addresses, telephone numbers etc.(called doxxing) online, that may encourage unstable individual(s) to commit crimes against that person and/or their families is unacceptable. It’s called terrorism.

Protesting in peaceful ways is the only way to effect positive, long-term change. Animal rights organizations need to disavow themselves from supporting terrorist tactics. Such tactics hurt the animals as well as negate all the accomplishments that peaceful activists have worked so hard to achieve.

We’ve come so far. Working to change hearts and minds is a slow process, but it is the only process – when executed in a multitude of ways – that will change their world and ours for the better.
