Anti-Hunting HSUS Extremist Claims Bond With NRA

posted on March 17, 2017

A representative of the anti-hunting extremist group Humane Society of the U.S. claimed his organization and the NRA should be on the same side.

Writing after attending CPAC, John Connor Cleveland wrote, “The NRA and The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) sometimes find themselves on opposite ends of an issue … But, as all humans are, so many rank-and-file supporters of both groups are bound by a common love of animals.” 

Cleveland’s article is deliberately misleading. Full of high-minded platitudes about “our collective duty towards animals,” he avoided quoting the CEO of HSUS, Wayne Pacelle, who has said, “If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would”; ”We want to stigmatize hunting, we see it as the next logical target and believe it is vulnerable”; and “(animals) have the right not to be taken, harvested or culled or any other euphemism for murder that wildlife managers use.”

To top it off, The Hill included a stock photo of a cute dog in a cage. However, HSUS operates not a single pet shelter anywhere in the world.
