Thanks for sourcing, but the AR movement will never be a cult or fad, there is no leader, no official group, no founder. Animal Rights activists come from all walks of life.=)

Gang members are arsonists, vandals, murderers, drug dealers, how come they aren't also terrorists? Pro-life activists are arsonists, vandals and killers, how come they aren't terrorists? Because the Government doesn't say so?

PETA has leaders so does HSUS and FOA and CASH and SHAC. They depend on sheep like you.

Anyone who commits murder or arson or other heinous crimes against humanity is a terrorist in my view.

Likewise, the Government has leaders and it depends on sheep like you. They make sure you're just comfortable enough to feel satisfied. The Government is aware that most people are selfish and will look the other way if it benefits them.

Even if that were true, I certainly don't need any more agents of control in my life and that goes double for purveyors of fantasy like animal rightists.
