    RE:  Stop Calling Mass Extermination & Genocide Euthanasia

    By-Line: In order to protect animals from abuse – we must first be candid and HONEST about what abuses are routinely taking place right under our noses. Typically, the media lacks this kind of candor and honesty. But HERE we disclose the naked, lamentable TRUTH lurking behind the whitewash media euphemisms.

    The term “Euthanasia” is being abused on a massive epidemic scale. And it doesn’t seem to matter whether it’s erudite, highly educated professional journalists at the New York Times \ Washington Post or recent high school grads at the local newspaper. This term is being misused to describe killing that does not qualify as “Euthanasia.” Even many animal rights activists and no-kill animal shelters can often be heard abusing this counterfeit term (it’s a counterfeit term when used to describe genocide).

    So the task here is to understand WHY this is happening on such a massive scale. This entails identifying the reasons for — the “causes” of — this pernicious, intractable practice of fraudulently labeling genocide. Such an inquiry leads us to two primary reasons for the fraudulent abuse of the term “Euthanasia”:  1) Definition Confusion; 2) The deliberate, calculated, intentional effort to deceive, conceal, distort, misrepresent, and candy-coat acts of killing that are deemed so morally unacceptable that society would be sickened, outraged and appalled if they knew the ‘truth’ — so those who commit those acts are bent on concealing the ‘truth’ with lies, half-truths, fraudulent counterfeit terms and euphemisms.  Regarding this second reason, a profoundly bizarre phenomena has wrapped itself around the initial core problem, by way of by-stander witnesses and journalists, analysts and experts, academics and pundits — who are complicit, unwittingly or not, in the conspiracy to deceive. Perhaps it’s a journalist who feels obliged to regurgitate the terms handed to him (this is not journalism it’s a secretary “taking dictation”) or perhaps it’s an entrenched favorable bias for the accused killer(s).  The bottom line is that there are a wide variety of reasons for engaging in the deception, which range from political and moral to economic and judicial.

    Definition Confusion:  This is the most common reason for the general population — which could include many thoughtless journalists, commentators, pundits and observers who adopted the counterfeit use of the term Euthanasia without ever giving it a second thought — without ever giving it any kind of scrutiny whatsoever. This is particularly astonishing, given how terribly simple and obvious the error is. People have come to erroneously believe that if someone kills in a manner that causes no pain or trauma — if someone kills “humanely” — then it is Euthanasia. So the animal kill-shelter that kills 3,000 perfectly healthy cats each year because they couldn’t find homes for them — they are said to have “Euthanized” the cats merely because they did it in a humane manner.

    The point is that many people erroneously think that the definition for “Animal Euthanasia” is “when an animal is humanely killed” — i.e., when the killing ‘method’ is deemed to be humane.  That is 10 million light-years from the true definition. And just a modest amount of simple common-sense is all that is needed to discover the error. There is no separate definition for human animals versus non-human animals. The term “Euthanize” is the same for each. To uncover the truth simply try applying the erroneous definition to a variety of different, yet comparable, circumstances. Suppose a disgruntled neighbor injects your happy, healthy pet with the same drug that kill-shelters use to kill cats — does that make the killing of your pet Euthanasia? Of course not. In the U.S. many death-row inmates are executed by humane methods (according to the U.S. Supreme Court) each year and no one is suggesting that the inmates were “Euthanized.” Slaughter houses claim that they kill millions of animals each year by ‘humane methods’ — while federal, state and local governments have concurred that the killing methods are humane. Yet no one is calling this Euthanasia. They correctly refer to it as the wholesale “slaughter” of animal life.

    Animal shelters that kill thousands of healthy cats and dogs each year because they cannot find homes for them are called “kill-shelters.” Animal shelters that do not are called “no-kill” shelters. Yet the media and the kill-shelters and the public — and even many no-kill shelters — will refer to the kill-shelter killings as “Euthanizing” those perfectly healthy cats and dogs. This is a case where common usage has completely jumped the tracks, so that a term has come to mean its exact opposite. But we can’t be complacent about the abuse of THIS term because it has a profoundly dark history — tracing back to Hitler’s “T4 Euthanasia” program — which in truth was the “Final Solution’ extermination program. We simply cannot allow this term to be hijacked and bastardized, yet again, by a similar brand of psychopaths. Or even by unwitting dolts.

    Animal Shelters – Animal Rights Groups:  What is most unfathomable is the fact that many animal shelters and animal rights groups have so unwittingly signed-on to this grotesque abuse of the term Euthanasia. You hear it most often when they talk about their noble and admirable “mission” to significantly “reduce the number of cats and dogs Euthanized each year.” The twisted irony is that when the term is fraudulently misused in this way it is weaponized as a euphemism in order to falsify, distort, conceal and candy-coat the reality of what is actually taking place — the wide-scale SLAUGHTER, KILLING, EXTERMINATION of perfectly healthy animals by the thousands — by the millions — merely because society has determined they are a “rift-raft” nuisance eye-sore in the neighborhood communities. What many animal shelters and animal rights groups have failed to realize is that by weaponizing the term as a euphemism it has made it infinitely EASIER for people to abandon pets and to sweep the neighborhoods clean of the nuisance rift-raft — because “Euthanasia is such a kind, compassionate, caring, benevolent thing to do to animals.” What a bitter, brutal irony that is. And so many members of these groups are completely clueless — oblivious of this undeniable horrific consequence of routinely acquiescing to the abominable torture and abuse of the term “Euthanasia.” Even the notorious PETA organization often abuses this term. The blistering irony is that Hitler’s propaganda campaign to trivialize his extermination program as merely Euthanasia was stolen from the animal shelters’ playbook of flagrant, perpetual abuse of that term to describe the routine wholesale slaughter of thousands of perfectly healthy animals — at what they disgustingly called “shelters” for homeless animals. The term “shelter” — when not fraudulently hijacked — usually means “safe haven” — “refuge of protection.”

    Animal Shelters – Animal Rights Groups:  What animal shelters and animal rights groups should realize is that they, themselves, invariably use the terms “kill-shelter” and “no-kill shelter.” These terms are universally recognized by these groups. They do NOT use the terms “euthanasia-shelter” and “non-euthanasia-shelter.” So there is already this very feint, hazy, inarticulate recognition that what’s really going on is the wide-scale SLAUGHTER, KILLING, EXTERMINATION of perfectly healthy animals — NOT the kind, compassionate, caring, benevolent “euthanizing” of animals. The message here is unmistakably clear. If you want to truly educate the public about the importance of being responsible pet owners — STOP falsifying and candy-coating the enormous dire consequences guaranteed to result from ‘irresponsible’ pet ownership — namely — “the wide-scale SLAUGHTER, KILLING, EXTERMINATION of perfectly healthy animals.” Actually, the expression “kill-shelter” is a fallacious contradiction in terms. If it is a killing fields animal warehouse facility — it most definitely is NOT a “shelter.”

    Media accounts about the mass slaughter of Canadian Geese in New York kept calling it “Euthanasia.” The Media stories I’m referring to repeatedly talked about the mass “Euthanization” of Canadian Geese for a variety of alleged reasons ranging from “over population” (a human convenience standard) to “nuisance eye-sore” (a human convenience standard) to air traffic safety (another human convenience standard). Mass Extermination is Not Euthanasia and it never will be — no matter how many times a society or a Hitler butcher’s the human language to make that claim.

    The term “Euthanize” only applies when it is done SOLELY for the benefit of the Euthanized animal or person, to alleviate excruciating, unrelenting pain and suffering of that animal or person, and only where that animal is in an irreversible terminal medical condition, where there is no hope of recovery and the pain and suffering is both pointless and inhumane (pointless in the sense that it is NOT pain briefly endured during a recovery period). In such cases Euthanasia is a last resort because they cannot be medically cured of their injuries, disease or illness and they are suffering enormous pain from their incurable illness.  (fn 2 & 7).

    Virtually every respected dictionary and encyclopedia defines Euthanasia as:  “the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals (as persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy.” (Miriam-Webster & Encyclopedia Britannica – fn 2 & 7). Sometimes referred to as “Mercy Killing,” it is unmistakably clear that the sole purpose of the mercy killing is to alleviate the needless, excruciating and extreme suffering of the terminally ill creature being killed. With true Euthanasia – the creature being killed is the sole beneficiary.   There is no other ‘ulterior’ motive — no other intended beneficiary — no other collateral purpose or interest being served when TRUE “Euthanasia” is implemented.

    It is imperative that we understand the profoundly Dark History entailed by the abuse and misuse of the term “Euthanize.”  It has deep roots in the Nazi propaganda machine that served Hitler’s “Final Solution” for achieving genetic purity of the race (Eugenics Program), as they too sought to clear the streets of the ‘rift-raft’ — the physically disabled, the mentally disabled, the elderly, the gays, the gypsies, the Jews and the non-Aryans — just as society today seeks to clear the streets of the ‘rift-raft’ — the homeless wandering dogs and cats deemed to be a ‘nuisance’ and an eye-sore. Hitler and the Nazi Regime called this genocide plan the “T4 Euthanasia Program”  (fn 3-6).

    Hitler knew that if he called it what it really was, “Extermination,” there would have been a mass revolt. But Hitler noticed that the animal shelters routinely abused and misused the counterfeit term “Euthanasia” to describe the wholesale slaughter of healthy animals — merely because they could not find homes for them and they were perceived as a ‘nuisance’. And Hitler immediately realized that society had completely accepted this fraudulent, wholly inappropriate use of this counterfeit term. So he shrewdly falsified what he was doing by calling his genocidal extermination plan the “T4 Euthanasia Program” knowing that most people deem Euthanasia to be a compassionate ‘humanitarian’ act of kindness and benevolence, rather than a ruthless, senseless, sociopathic genocide.  (fn 3-6). It is imperative that we never, ever forget the enormous danger and dire consequences emanating from the desensitization of a society through the constant, routine, calculated falsification of the meaning of the term Euthanasia. We simply cannot allow this term to be hijacked and bastardized, yet again, by a similar brand of sociopaths.

    Killing one being, taking one life, solely for the benefit of ‘another’ (namely the ones doing the killing) is NOT, I repeat, is NOTEuthanasia” in any sense of that term and that term should never, ever be used to describe such conduct.

    Media accounts about the mass slaughter of Canadian Geese in New York kept calling it “euthanasia.” It would appear that all those engaged in this “Mass Extermination Program” and all those in the media reporting about it, are acutely aware of how immoral, inexcusable, unethical, unjustifiable, reprehensible and indefensible this “Mass Extermination Program” really was, otherwise there would be no need to cover it up with fraudulent, sham euphemisms, as the Nazi’s did. If the Extermination of the Canadian Geese is so defensible and honorable and morally justifiable, then come right out and call it exactly what it is — the Mass Extermination & Genocide of perfectly healthy Canadian Geese purely for human convenience reasons, and in no way is it Euthanasia for the benefit of the geese.

    These geese were “Exterminated” purely for human convenience, and that makes the term “Euthanize” totally inapplicable and reprehensible. The ‘human convenience’ is that the humans saved themselves the time, the expense and inconvenience of solving the Canadian Geese problem in an intelligent, non-violent, humanitarian manner. One way or another, this ‘rift-raft’ was going to be discarded — either to a relocation center or to an incinerator. They chose the lazy, unintelligent, sociopathic, ruthless solution — the ‘incinerator’ method, just as Hitler’s “Final Solution” did.

    Killing one being, taking one life solely, for the benefit of ‘another’ (namely the ones doing the killing) is called social engineering “EXTERMINATION” — regardless of whether the killing ‘method’ is deemed to be humane. It is precisely what Hitler’s Nazi Regime did with humans — they “EXTERMINATED” them for the twisted perceived benefit of society (the Supreme Aryan Race) under his demented social engineering notion of a genetically pure race of human beings.  (fn 3-6). The mass slaughter of perfectly healthy beings — merely because they are deemed to be rift-raft — a ‘nuisance’ — How does that ever, EVER come to be described as “Euthanasia?”

    Therefore the media and everyone else should STOP calling these Mass Extermination & Genocide crusades “Euthanasia” since that term absolutely does NOT apply. And the fact that this term does NOT apply is not a gray-area of uncertainty or a debatable point today any more than it was when Hitler deliberately and strategically abused the term to facilitate his Mass Extermination & Genocide agenda. Take a good hard look at these words — Mass Extermination & Genocide — because that is what humans have been doing to animals at kill-shelters — NOT “Euthanasia” as everyone is fraudulently claiming.

    Either this action is justifiable when we call it exactly what it is (Mass Extermination & Genocide) or it is NOT justifiable when we call it exactly what it is (Mass Extermination & Genocide). In either case, falsifying the accounts of what is taking place by deliberately using what, ipso facto, is a patently fraudulent, inaccurate counterfeit term (“Euthanasia“) to misrepresent what is going on, is most definitely morally and ethically and logically repulsive, wrong and logically\morally indefensible. If it is too horrible and too ugly and too disturbing to think about what it really is (Mass Extermination & Genocide) then clearly it is something humans should NOT be doing.

    We urge the media to STOP calling these Mass Extermination & Genocide crusades “Euthanasia.”   Just because some business or government entity attempts to defraud the media with a counterfeit term, does not mean the media is licensed or obliged to pass that fraud onto the general public as though it had legal tender status. We simply cannot afford to have the media, the Fourth Branch of Government, constantly falling asleep at the wheel, shirking its responsibility to the truth, sucking down every flim-flam sham counterfeit term that some fast-talking, sociopathic snake-oil salesman decides to panhandle — and then dispensing that fraudulent tripe to the public as though it was the Gospel truth. 98% of what humans consume from the media is NOT verbatim quotes, but rather, paraphrased summaries — it’s an editorial license to paraphrase. We implore the media to exercise an honest, ethical standard of human decency and refuse to paraphrase “Mass Extermination & Genocide” as “Euthanasia.” We urge the media to question those who dispense the fraudulent use of the term and to challenge the appropriateness of the term. And where it is necessary to include the inappropriate use of the term in a direct quote — the media should realize it is entirely appropriate, if not obligatory, to subsequently point out that the known facts are at odds with the authentic true meaning of that term.

    We urge the mass media — Please tell all news writers and reporters to STOP misusing and misapplying this term “Euthanasia” and call the routine wholesale slaughter of perfectly healthy animals what it really is — Mass Extermination.  STOP being the complicit hand-maidens of dishonest entities seeking to distort, conceal and falsify the truth in a determined effort to defraud and deceive the public.

  •    Humane Society Exterminates Its Purpose   

    Scales of Balanced Justice

    By-Line: In order to protect animals from abuse – we must be candid and HONEST about what abuses are actually routinely taking place right under our noses. Typically, the media lacks this kind of candor and honesty. But HERE we disclose the naked, lamentable TRUTH lurking behind the whitewash media euphemisms.

    Humane Society Cover-up: Scruffy Dead But Exterminations and PR Fraud Thriving

    By now, most everyone has heard the lamentable story of a desperate man named Daniel Dockery, who brought his injured 9-month-old cat, Scruffy, to the Arizona Humane Society for medical treatment (FN 1-5). As Scruffy’s name implies, he resided with a destitute family and Dockery could not afford a regular vet. Dockery was desperate to save the life of his precious pet and he figured (erroneously) – “these people are ‘humane’ lovers of animals – they will not let my Scruffy die when his injury was treatable.”

    How horribly wrong his assumptions turned out to be. The Arizona Humane Society “EXTERMINATED Scruffy.” within hours of Scruffy’s arrival without ever explaining to Dockery what they intended to do. And this was done despite that fact that Scruffy’s serious injury was treatable and survivable.

    Dockery said that he reluctantly surrendered the cat to the Arizona Humane Society on Dec. 8 after clinic staff declined to take a credit card from his mother over the phone or wait 24 hours for her to wire him cash. They told him that the cat only would be treated if he signed over ownership, he said (FN 1). They never even informed Dockery that they had exterminated Scruffy. Later, “Dockery searched for the cat for three weeks at agency shelters and repeatedly asked staff what had happened to Scruffy but learned Tuesday that the cat was Euthanized a few hours after he brought her in”  (FN 1).

    According to Arizona Humane Society spokeswoman Stacy Pearson, the agency took Scruffy intending to treat it and put it in foster care, but when she was taken to a second-chance clinic with three other cats, doctors were only available to treat two of them  (FN 1).

    The story gets worse. Dockery told the Arizona Humane Society his mother could pay for the treatment by credit card over the telephone, but the Arizona Humane Society REFUSED to accept payment in that manner. Yet spokeswoman Stacy Pearson stated with certainty that if the clinic had accepted his mother’s credit card by phone, Scruffy would not have been exterminated  (FN 1).

    Dockery’s personal life story makes this decrepit episode even more heart-wrenching. Dockery disclosed that for the past nine months, Scruffy has been his closest companion and has helped him stay off drugs for more than a year, the longest stretch he’s ever been clean. He is described as “a recovering heroin addict with a lengthy prison record, who has a handful of friends and a caretaking job in Phoenix that provides him with room and board” (FN 1). He said that “as he hand-fed Scruffy even before she opened her eyes at 4 days old, he found that he was nursing his own way back into society. He raised money to have Scruffy spayed. The kitten ate from fresh cans of tuna and slept on Dockery’s pillow at night”  (FN 1).

    And now, Scruffy is gone and Dockery is on his own – his little buddy and best friend gone forever.

    Also gone forever is my support for this demented organization mislabeled “The Humane Society.” This fraudulent entity is obviously NOT “humane” and their Killing Fields “Death Camps” should never, ever be called “shelters.” These are fraudulent labels utilized to lure unwitting people in (along with their money) under the false pretense that they really CARE. What was mindlessly and needlessly done to EXTERMINATE Scruffy is NOT the work of someone “who cares” — in fact, had anyone at the Humane Society actually and genuinely CARED, Scruffy would still be with Dockery today. Scruffy was exterminated BECAUSE nobody at the Humane Society CARED. And that is what we need to talk about for the remainder of this article.

    In a very recent CNN Interview with Bretta Nelson, the Arizona Humane Society Public Relations Director, the question was asked: “Why the rush to kill a pet brought to them for medical treatment – instead of giving the pet owner time to get the money to pay for the treatment?” Bretta Nelson never answered the question  (FN 2). She rambled on about an irrelevant point, blaming the extermination of Scruffy on a “failed credit card policy.” She also falsely claimed this pet owner’s situation was “a bit unique” when, in fact, it is appallingly common. Nelson refused to squarely answer this very simple, legitimate question: “Why the rush to kill a pet?”  (FN 2).

    In this CNN Interview Nelson was as asked: “Do people have an expectation that injured animals will be treated if brought to the Humane Society for help?” Once again, Bretta Nelson never answered the question. In another rambling non sequitur diatribe she talked about the severity of Scruffy’s injuries and said the cat was suffering. This was a calculated, deliberate attempt by Nelson to deceive the public into erroneously believing Scruffy’s injury and pain were NOT treatable, when in fact, it WAS treatable. Because Scruffy’s injuries WERE TREATABLE Scruffy’s EXTERMINATION can NOT be labeled as “euthanasia.” But Nelson is deceptively and calculatingly trying to misleading the public into believing what they did to Scruffy was a merciful act of euthanasia.  (FN 2).

    In this same CNN interview, Nelson said they are “not able by law to hold a pet until payment.” That was another blatant attempt to totally defraud and deceive the public with a misleading statement. The law does NOT prohibit “holding a pet until payment” when the pet owner CONSENTS to the ‘holding’ for the benefit of the pet. The law is simply trying to prohibit treatment centers from “holding the pet as ransom” until the bill is paid – WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF THE PET OWNER (obviously – in a ransom situation there is NO pet owner consent.  (FN 2).

    These revolting, nauseating, Bad Faith attempts by the Arizona Humane Society to defraud and deceive the public about this incident reveals just how UNSCRUPULOUS and sociopathic they really are. In that CNN interview, the Arizona Humane Society Public Relations Director, Bretta Nelson, stated, ad nauseam, “we never force anyone to make the heart-wrenching decision to surrender a pet”  (FN 2). This is yet another flagrantly fraudulent, unscrupulous attempt to deceive the public and lure them into believing Dockery voluntarily, on his own, made the conscious decision to surrender his Scruffy to the Arizona Humane Society for extermination. The TRUTH is, they led Dockery to believe Scruffy would receive urgently needed medical treatment IF HE SURRENDERED SCRUFFY TO THE SOCIETY. Dockery had absolutely no idea that he was dealing with a bunch of dishonest sociopaths who were going to exterminate Scruffy within two hours.

    The Arizona Humane Society sunk so low it even tried to capitalize on the extermination of Scruffy by turning it into a “Fund Raising” event — claiming it was attributable to the fact that the demand (need) for animal care exceeds the resources of the Humane Society and it was this “lack of adequate resources” that was responsible for Scruffy’s extermination. The statement is patently FALSE. Scruffy was exterminated because no one at the Arizona Humane Society cared enough about Scruffy to give this poor man the time or the means to pay for the treatment Scruffy needed. This was not a mere ‘credit card policy’ snafu — this was the result of the actions of cold, heartless, callously indifferent sociopaths who simply did not CARE about Scruffy. These were the actions of people utterly devoid of compassion or conscience.

    Arizona Humane Society spokeswoman Stacy Pearson said “It was never intended for that cat to be Euthanized”  (FN 1). The blistering irony is that if Pearson and the Society really “CARED” they would never, ever call the “EXTERMINATION” of an animal “euthanasia.” What they did to Scruffy and what they routinely do to thousands of other animals is called “EXTERMINATION” not ‘euthanasia.’

    Euthanasia only applies where the killing of the animal is done solely for the benefit of the animal being killed – virtually always because the animal is experiencing immense and excruciating pain and suffering, in a situation where the animal is in a HOPELESS “terminal” condition for which there is no cure, no hope or possibility of reversing that terminal condition  (FN 6-7). It is called “euthanasia” because ‘putting the animal down’ is considered a “humane act” for a terminal animal who has no chance for a recovery, no chance to escape that pain and suffering, thereby making the “prolonging” of his horrific pain and suffering both ‘pointless’ and inhumane.  BUT that was not the circumstance Scruffy was in. Scruffy’s injury WAS treatable. That much is certain. And the unvarnished Truth of the matter is that the vast, overwhelming majority of the killing being done by the Humane Society is EXTERMINATION – not euthanasia. The Society and the media must stop defrauding the public with the euthanasia euphemism design to hide the Truth about these EXTERMINATION camps.

    When the animal is killed for reasons having absolutely nothing to do with the welfare of that animal — the killing is for human “convenience” reasons (to clear the streets and neighborhoods of riff-raff) and THAT killing most certainly is NOT “Euthanasia”  (FN 6-7). As this story makes unmistakably clear, this cat was NOT in a HOPELESS terminal condition AND he was NOT ‘pointlessly’ suffering when they killed him because his illness was treatable and curable. These shelter animals are routinely killed as a matter of human convenience and it is called “extermination” NOT euthanasia.

    It is worth noting that the fraudulent, deliberate misuse of the term “Euthanasia” has deep roots in the Nazi propaganda machine that served Hitler’s Grand Plan for genetic purity (Eugenics Program), as they too sought to clear the streets of the ‘rift-raft’ — the physically disabled, the mentally disabled, the elderly, the gays, the gypsies and the Jews  (FN 8-11). Hitler and the Nazi Regime called this the “T4 Euthanasia Program.” Hitler knew that if he called it what it really was, “extermination,” there would have been a mass revolt. Hitler deliberately falsified what he was doing by calling it “euthanasia” knowing that most people had already accepted that fraudulent term at animal homeless ‘warehouses’ and people deemed it to be a ‘humanitarian’ act of kindness, rather than the ruthless, senseless genocide that it really was.  (FN 8-11). Hitler reasoned that since the fraudulent use of the term “euthanasia” had already been successful at the animal ‘kill centers’ — it might work again for his new genocide plans.

    Chillingly — the media’s and animal shelter’s dishonesty about the term “Euthanasia” regarding animals is virtually identical to the Nazi calculated, deliberate, strategic misuse of that term, in that it seeks to conceal (via fraudulent misrepresentation) the true reality of what is taking place and why, by hiding it behind a sham euphemism that falsifies the reasons for the killing and the intended beneficiary of the killing, just as the Nazi Regime did  (FN 8-11). Virtually every respected dictionary and encyclopedia defines euthanasia as: “the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of HOPELESSLY SICK or injured individuals (as persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy”  (FN 6-7). Sometimes referred to as “Mercy Killing,” it is unmistakably clear that the sole purpose of the mercy killing is to alleviate the excruciating, pointless, unequivocal and extreme suffering of the ‘terminal’ creature being killed. There is no OTHER ‘ulterior’ motive — no OTHER intended beneficiary — no OTHER collateral purpose or interest being served when TRUE “euthanasia” is implemented. It is done solely for the terminal animal’s benefit  (FN 6-7).

    It would appear that all those engaged in this “Extermination Program” and all those in the media reporting about it, are acutely aware of how immoral, inexcusable, unethical, unjustifiable, reprehensible and indefensible these animal “Extermination Programs” really are, otherwise there would be no need to cover it up with fraudulent, sham euphemisms, as the Nazi’s did. If the EXTERMINATION of these animals is so defensible and moral and justifiable, then come right out and call it exactly what it is — the mass EXTERMINATION of perfectly healthy homeless animals purely for human convenience reasons, and in no way is it for the benefit of these EXTERMINATED animals.

    The fraudulent euphemisms are everywhere. We hear candy-coated terms like “we put down the animal” and “we euthanized the animal” substituted for what really happened – “we killed” – “we exterminated” – “we executed” – “we murdered in cold blood.” We hear dishonest terms like “shelter” and “animal shelter” and “refuge” and “haven” — when, in fact, these places are “Extermination Camps” – “Death Camps” – “Killing Fields” and “Slaughter Houses” where animals are routinely, swiftly, needlessly and heartlessly killed for social policy ‘human convenience’ reasons having absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the welfare or well-being of those animals. There is nothing “humane” or compassionate or righteous or honorable or admirable about this dark demented practice. Yet the media and these so-called ‘shelters’ invest enormous Public Relations (PR) energy and dollars in a determined effort to candy-coat and conceal the true reality – with the intent to defraud the public so it will lend its consent and financial support to a practice that is so revolting, reprehensible and nauseating that consent could never have been achieved IF THE TRUTH HAD BEEN DISCLOSED.

    Daniel Dockery was one of those people who had been duped by the media and by these extermination Death Camps — so thoroughly duped that he made the regrettable mistake of believing “these people are ‘humane’ lovers of animals – they will not let my Scruffy die when his injury is treatable.” Dockery was dead-wrong BECAUSE he’d been defrauded by a dishonest media and a dishonest, wealthy PR campaign waged by the Extermination Camps that profit handsomely from their deceit which capitalizes on the public’s profound compassion for animals. It can’t get any more disgusting than that. It’s so revolting the public can’t bear to hear about it.

    Animal Lovers BEWARE — Whenever you hear people refer to your pet as “it” — as every single spokeperson at the Arizona Humane Society repeatedly does, you know with a high degree of certainty those people DO NOT CARE about your pet. Scruffy has a name and he is a “he” — not an “it.”

    After Dockery learned of Scruffy’s extermination at the hands of the Society, he lamented, “Now I’ve got to think about how I failed that beautiful animal – I failed her … That’s so wrong. There was no reason for her not to be treated”  (FN 1).

    The god-awful Truth is, the Arizona Humane Society failed Dockery, failed Scruffy, failed the public, failed to live up to their name and their promises, and then they proceeded to roll-out all their heavy artillery PR spin doctors and Public Relations flim-flam ‘smoke & mirrors’ linguistic shysters, in a flagrant, shameless attempt to deceive, defraud and misleading the public about the Truth of this demented incident. The Arizona Humane Society hired a PR professional solely for the purpose of damage control over this issue (your donation $$ at work – but not to benefit the critters)  (FN 5). The Arizona Humane Society continues to monitor and censor critical, unflattering, non-supportive messages from its web site, while liberally dispensing supportive comments. There’s not an ounce of Good Faith in anything these unscrupulous dishonest schemers have done and they need to pay a heavy price for their morally barren Bad Faith efforts to defraud the public.

    Therefore we urge you, the readers, to let these sleaze-balls know exactly what you think about their brain-dead sociopathic practices. Below we have provided pinpoint specific links for contacting the Arizona Humane Society, the Humane Society of the United States, the International chapter of the Humane Society. Additionally, we have provided below, a string of Email addresses for ranking authorities within the Humane Society of the United States. You can simply copy the entire Email string in one copy motion and then paste it into the “To” address window of your Email program for a single Email message transmission to all of them. And finally, we encourage you to visit the numerous story links we cited in our footnotes, and leave a comment at the CNN and CBS web pages carrying this story. If the Humane Society does not incur a heavy price for their unscrupulous conduct, they will just keep doing more of it. If they are not faced with dire consequences, then no one will be fired and no one will ever be held accountable for their Bad Faith public deceit.

    We send our most sincere, heartfelt sympathies to Daniel Dockery and we vow that this blog site will erect a Memorial right here, in honor of Dockery’s beloved Scruffy — may he Rest in Peace – far away from the heartless sociopaths who squelched his Beautiful Life – because of money.

    AMEN.
