Another Extremist . . .

Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front, told the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works that killing medical researchers was "morally justified" to save laboratory animals. . .
He made his comments while defending a similar statement, made to the news media last year: "I don't think you'd have to kill – assassinate – too many vivisectors before you would see a marked decrease in the amount of vivisection going on. And I think for five lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives."

During his speech, Vlasak also compared the life of lab animals to those of Black slaves and the Jewish victims of Nazi concentration camps.

The Animal Liberation Front has always been known for being sort of, well . . . extreme. They've also come under fire for vandalism and harrasment.

And yet, this is another story that I doubt will ever be seen on anywhere in the MSM.
