The great seal hunt scam

Listen carefully to the words of Sea Sheppard head Paul Watson in this 1978 interview on the CBC by Barbara Frum.





Contrast those words to this recent news. I guess the lure of all that money to be made from those cute little seals was just too great to pass up for Paul Watson after all.

A big tip of the hat to Hunter at Climbing out of the Dark

Thanks for the H/T Ardvark! Yes, quite interesting, it's all about the money they can raise, not the seals.

There's a sucker born every minute. And apparently they include schoolchildren and pensioners. That's sick. Everyone should see this video.

Wow. I didn't think I could be more disgusted with that man than I already was, but he is detestable.

The question I have after all of this is; do these groups REALLY want the seal hunt, which is their biggest cash cow, stopped?

If the Canadian seal hunt was stopped, Paul Watson might have to get a real job.

The seal hunt protest is a business like any other, a big business too. It helps to finance many wing-nut activsts groups today. If the seal hunt was to stop, these protest groups would be in trouble.
