Supporters of Antis
This is going to be a thread that is to make folks aware of who supports animal rights activists (ARA's) or Antis for short. Do NOT post "well I heard it was so and so" as we dont want rumors, only facts ! Whether it is a person or a large corporation, we need to know so we dont support their cause ! I will remove any that are not factual. If possible, cite your source. There have been many posts over the years about this topic on various forums so we are not in violation of any laws by posting factual information. Thanx

February 20th, 2005, 04:45 PM

It's not hunting related but Pizza Hut does not support a persons right to carry a concealed firearm while delivering pizzas to strangers houses.

Roxanne Quimby- COO of Burts Bees, based in Durham NC. She is attempting to develop a 3.2 million acre National park in Maine. The proposed would be larger than Yellowstone and Yosemite combined> Yes NO HUNTING and she wants to make it a national park so You pay to maintain it. When the Nature Conservancy bought 185,000 acres in Maine she donated 2 million dollars. She just bought 24,083 thousand acres for 12 million and kicked all the hunters off, as well as the snowmobile trails closed. She has purchased another 15,921 acres at 7.1 million and yes its all now closed to hunters..
How much of this elite stuff is going on in Your area? They buy the land, turn it over to the goverment so they can maintain it and avoid future taxes, with the stipulation that there will be no hunting..

This Quimby character, a wealthy anti hunting person, who bushbuck refers to above also contributed ( though a rather small amount ) to those pushing the Maine anti bear hunting referendum last year.

Does PETA own Outback Steak house?
September 2nd, 2005, 11:05 AM
Well this is why we need to support more celeberties that are for hunting and the shooting sports people like Ted Nugent, Genna Davis, Jeff Foxworthy,and so on. If we do not get on the ball and try to support our own beloved sport we may lose it forever.

Have you caught the William Shatner's/Capt Kirk new Peta add on TV.
Just a heads up, it looks like Disney is looking to remake Bambi
Finally, Mel Gibson (search) the new Michael Eisner? A consortium of European investors is courting Mel to take over Disney.
"Gibson has the sensibilities Hollywood needs," according to a source close to the actor.
The people behind the push point to "The Passion" and say that's the kind of profitability they like. I like Bob Sommerby from dailyhowler.com's observation -- "that remake of Bambi is going to be brutal"

What I dont get is why anyone cares what SOME celebrity thinks anyway!!!!
They are all nuts with way too much money.
You have got to love them Iowa Deer!!!!
October 5th, 2005, 02:13 PM
Everytime you plunk down money to see one of their movies, or buy one of their books, or watch their TV shows, you're putting money into their pockets which in part finds its way to these ARA groups. In other words, if you support the work of these wackos, you are in affect supporting PETA, HSUS, ASPCA, ALF, Fund for Animals,etc, etc, etc.

I am not going to post a bunch of links, but Americas sweetheart turned @@##$%# pamela anderson is a huge supporter of PETA. I didn't see her name on the list.
November 18th, 2005, 04:43 PM
You are CORRECT! She is also a VEGAN, pushing the VEGAN "way of life"

Wacko of the highest order.

I don't vote like a cecebrity or want to be like a celebrity. Everything I kill I eat and share with others including shelters. I contribute and support wildlife conservation and I obey all laws and take advantage of my rights as an American. I could be a celebrity if I wanted at act but I prefer to be myself and do all the things I enjoy. Hunting makes me proud. One more thing, I have a permit to carry a concealed firearm and so does my wife and 21 year old son. God bless America.
January 3rd, 2006, 12:53 PM
Another for the list, possibly. tell me what you think.
Pamela Anderson just had a charity "roast" on comedy central. All money raised went to the Petards. It looks to me like Comedy Central is now on the list of Peta Supporters, since they promoted, sponsored, and broadcast it in order to raise money for her "cause"
January 3rd, 2006, 03:08 PM
I would second that assessment. ADD Comedy Central to the list. You can only chock so much up to "being funny."

I'm not trying to stir the pot here, but could someone explain to me if a celeb or anyone contributes money to 'anti-animal fighting' causes or 'anti-dolphin trapping' causes, what makes them so bad? I don't happen to agree with those practices at all. Yes, I whacked 3 deer this year with my bow and will fight to preserve hunting, fishing, trapping and the shooting sports till the day I die. I happen to support spay/neuter ideals. Does that make me part of the problem?
Make counter accusations.
January 11th, 2006, 09:55 PM
Well, No and yes to your Question ...no if they only help to spay/neuter pets ... That is one thing ..dolphin trapping.. Are they endangered ? I doubt that even happens much ..Or is it accidental by fish nets? I am not sure ..that stuff needs checked close ..as they say one thing and do another..or ..money may go in to one big pot .then it goes to all kinds of stuff ..like trying to stop bear hunts in NJ ..To banning trapping in NM ..They do this kind of under handed deals all the time.. I never give anti hunting celebs money ..as it may go to anti hunting causes or it will help to keep there face out there to spout off that junk .. I won't even watch their movies on TV.. as the more people watch the more they show it and they won't think airing their views hurt them.. They can have them. but, they should not try and influence people .. Just like politics ... If they wish to lose half their audience they should .. I just copy some thing before I give em any of my money for it ..Not that I am telling anyone else to do that ..

Just wondering ..
Is AOL on the list ..I have had people tell me they are antis ..And I sure thought so , as when I used them a while back ..they block gun sites etc..
January 11th, 2006, 10:09 PM
While they may be contributing to a cause in the belief of good faith, their donations may be going to factions that are anti hunting. How many people give to the hsus or peta believing that their money is going towards helping abandoned kittens and puppies when in reality it is being spent against sportsmen's interests?

Go to www.animalliberationfront.com and spend a few hours reading their FAQs, credo, and forums. Then see if you feel the same way. Not only do they want to take away your right to whack a few deer, they would like to see YOU dead. It's not a game to them and they are, unfortunately, just as passionate about doing away with your hunting as you are about keeping it. I will not support any ARA supporters and appreciate these lists.
