Where is Bush's terrorist doctrine? Could these people be campaign contributors? Or does our government hold their views? We all scream for terrorists
Posted On July 31, 2002
Davis, California residents learned last week that an animal-rights group called VIVA! (Vegetarians International Voice for Animals) would be opposing the construction of a new dairy facility. Rabidly opposed to milk, cheese, and ice cream, the group has even interrupted festivities connected to Baskin-Robbins’ “national ice cream day.”

So who exactly is VIVA? Lauren Ornelas, the spokesperson who talked to The Davis Enterprise, also goes by the name Lauren Ornelas Sullivan – when she’s organizing protests for the radical Rainforest Action Network. This group has direct ties to the Ruckus Society and its more violent twin Earth First!

Even more disturbing: A national VIVA protest event held on July 13 lists Kevin Jonas as its New York City organizer. Jonas spent two years as the national “spokesperson” for the Animal Liberation Front, an FBI-certified domestic terror group. He now runs the U.S. arm of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), a group bent on (literally) destroying medical research companies who use animals in their search for disease cures. Jonas told this year’s Animal Rights 2002 (AR2002) convention that “today’s terrorist is tomorrow’s freedom fighter.”

Ornelas, by the way, is married to Patrick Sullivan, a crew member with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society -- a renegade group of ocean-bound radicals that uses intimidation and violence to force professional fisherman out of business. The Sea Shepherd flagship Farley Mowatt is outfitted with a concrete-filled bow for ramming (and sinking) other vessels. In one of his AR2002 speeches, Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson advised the assembled activists that “[the] destruction of property is not violence,” and bragged that “there’s nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win.”

"A self-righteous animal-rights group is trying to scare children" away from drinking milk, The Edmonton Sun declared last fall, commenting on PETA's schoolyard scare campaign against milk. PETA went to schools and distributed cards showing sickly children suffering ailments PETA claims are brought on by milk. "Never mind that top medical and nutrition experts have long promoted milk because it's loaded with calcium and other nutrients," the Sun said.

Now, PETA has crossed the border, running an ad in a Wisconsin high school paper that alleges that "dairy products cause acne," the Associated Press reports. The ad, a parody of the popular "Got Milk?" ads, "shows the face of a young woman with acne and with the milk-moustache used in the dairy advertisements."

Says a representative of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture: "My first reaction to the ad is to say to them, 'Got bull?' [PETA] will say anything for a headline and, as a result, they have absolutely no credibility. Their ad campaigns run the gamut from tasteless to just plain dumb and this one is both… They should find a way to be advocates for vegetarianism without lying."

But there's more to PETA's anti-milk campaign than mere deception. PETA has funneled over $600,000 to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), an animal-rights front group that recently launched a major anti-dairy ad campaign. PCRM's Neal Barnard recently engineered a letter-writing campaign with Kevin Jonas of the violent animal rights group SHAC -- a former spokesman for the FBI-labeled terrorist Animal Liberation Front (ALF). Both SHAC and ALF engage in firebombing, property destruction, and other forms of violence, as does ALF's sister group, the Earth Liberation Front -- which has received direct funding from PETA.
