First, lets see a nutjob in action:
A radical animal rights activist shocked members of the U.S. Senate this week by advocating the murder of those conducting medical research.
Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front, told the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works that killing medical researchers was "morally justified" to save laboratory animals.
Vlasak compared the life of lab animals to African American slaves and the Jewish victims of Nazi concentration camps.
He made his comments while defending a similar statement, made to the news media last year: "I don't think you'd have to kill – assassinate – too many vivisectors before you would see a marked decrease in the amount of vivisection going on. And I think for five lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives."Now that's a nutjob. Who's all about supporting these killers? The Left. Hollywood. The Democrats. They don't support THIS guy of course, but they create the atmosphere that enables him and they give money to the people that fund him. That'd be PETA.
Lets take a look at the depth of moral comitment shown by a pillar of the Left, Noam Chomsky. Or as I like to call him, Numb Chumpsky. Numby has been caught out of late. Thanks to Mr. Lee for this one.
Now that's a deep moral commitment to one's ideals, eh? Numby is worth like two million bucks these days. Damn capitalist running dogs are making Numby a fortune.
is one of Chomsky's demons. It's hard to find anything positive he might say about American business. He paints an ominous vision of America suffering under the "unaccountable and deadly rule of corporations." He has called corporations "private tyrannies" and declared that they are "just as totalitarian as Bolshevism and fascism." Capitalism, in his words, is a "grotesque catastrophe." America
But a funny thing happened on the way to the retirement portfolio.
Chomsky, for all of his moral dudgeon against American corporations, finds that they make a pretty good investment. When he made investment decisions for his retirement plan at MIT, he chose not to go with a money market fund, or even a government bond fund. Instead, he threw the money into blue chips and invested in the TIAA-CREF stock fund. A look at the stock fund portfolio quickly reveals that it invests in all sorts of businesses that Chomsky says he finds abhorrent: oil companies, military contractors, pharmaceuticals, you name it.
When I asked Chomsky about his investment portfolio he reverted to a "what else can I do" defense: "Should I live in a cabin in
?" he asked. It was a clever rhetorical dodge. Chomsky was declaring that there is simply no way to avoid getting involved in the stock market short of complete withdrawal from the capitalist system. He certainly knows better. There are many alternative funds these days that allow you to invest your money in "green" or "socially responsible" enterprises. They just don't yield the maximum available return. Montana
Just a couple of examples of who you're dealing with when you get up to the top rungs in the Lefty superstructure. They say one thing and do another.
