While in decline, the power of the Pit Nut, AR fanatic and dog worshiper reigns supreme!
Dr. Laura Schlessinger put in her place by angry pit nutters. Who is SHE to challenge their overclass status?!?
Read more about that here.
Schlessinger promotes a version of social conservatism that I generally do not agree with. She is a hypocrite on at least one issue. That said, this case is interesting because a MAJOR celebrity was forced to her knees for the suggestion that a breed of dog is not the greatest thing since satellite TV!
Consider this: Dr. Laura was considering adopting a pet dog (oh, how sweet). Upon landing at her local animal shelter she realized that it was OVERRUN WITH PIT BULLS -
“So I went there one time, seeing what dogs they had. Well, it was about
95 percent pit bulls, or pit bull mixes,” she said. “Now, I know this
is going to get somebody angry, but I think they should all be put down.
First of all, they were taking up space and nobody was going to adopt
them. That’s why they were all there. People were getting rid of them.
So, all this money, and I spoke to the ladies there, all this money is
going to feed pit bulls.”
But, isn't an individual dog's life worth more than every other living thing on earth COMBINED? Hell, lets take our entire FOUR TRILLION DOLLAR Federal budget and spend it all on dogs! Geez, Laura, you gots it all WRONG!
Laura follows up with: “I remember when I was younger you could go to one of these places and
find any kind of dog,” she said. “ So, that was kind of annoying.”
See, that was then, and this is now. NOW we all hoist by our own petards as an unconditional love of dogs has reduced us to the lowest common denominator.... game bred pit bulls for everyone! Only Hitler and Pol Pot would object! Resistance is Futile!
In all seriousness (for a change) consider what Laura was getting at: We have a MAJOR oversupply of pit bulls. Pit Bulls are like hot weather in FL in July. Pit Bulls are like snow in VT in January. See, there ARE TOO MANY PIT BULLS! We DO NOT NEED ANY MORE PIT BULLS!
Here is the question for the day: Why do we have so many Pit Bulls? Trailer trash looking for a quick buck? Dangerous dog fanatics looking to PWN their neighborhood? Social Justice Warriors looking out for the "underdog"? An 80 year social engineering project to make us all hopeless dog addicts?
Here is what I find interesting: Pit nuts brought a MAJOR right wing talking head to her knees. This woman never apologized for anything, as far as I can tell UNTIL NOW. Consider:
“After reading the emails from pit bull lovers, I realize that my
comments were hurtful. I apologize for causing any pit bull
owner/fancier any distress,” she wrote.
Oh, the pit bull lovers have their panties in a bunch. What am I to do? BOO HOO!
