Animal Rights Racism

Worst Persons in the World

A group of horrible adult humans apparently decided that the best way to respond to a group of Girl Scouts who are concerned about animal cruelty is to hurl racial slurs at them.

The young Girl Scouts -- ranging in ages from 10 to 13 -- attended a meeting of the Cecil County, Maryland Animal Care and Control Oversight Committee where a group of assholes told them to "go back to Balitmore."

“They were saying, ‘Go back to Baltimore, where you belong,’ and they started pointing out me and my sisters,” said Arianna Spurlock, who is 13. None of the girls live in Baltimore, which is more than an hour away from Cecil County.

The girls also allege they were called “animals.” [...]

[Scout Leader Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich] said that she went with a group of parents to file a police report but were told it was not possible because the individuals did not “use the n-word.”

I guess they were smart enough not to use the "N-Word" -- a difference without much of a distinction in this case.

The real "animals" are the so-called adults who would use racial insults (or any insult for that matter) to intimidate a group of children who only wanted to express their concern for abused dogs.

The 'Buddy For Life' animal control vendor, whose volunteers allegedly shouted at the girls, is accused of abusing animals.

The Cecil Times reported that a surprise visit to the facility “found unremoved feces, odors and many dogs with serious ‘mange’ and other skin conditions.” There were also allegations of “overstaffing at the Buddy operation at taxpayer expense.” The company has been repeatedly fined for violating state and federal law.

These are the worst persons among us.

    Fox News and Republican politicians are enabling this.

    I’m not sure which is worse, this:

    The girls were standing outside of the meeting with homemade signs, when they said supporters of the county’s animal control vendor, A Buddy for Life, began shouting racially tinged remarks at them.

    or this:

    A Buddy for Life Co-Director Jen Callahan is heard on the county’s audio recording of the meeting asking the commission to disregard the scouts’ comments because the troop has never visited the facility. It stoked already heated tensions during the meeting.

    “The Girl Scouts came out and had some things to say, I understand that they were coached with what to say,” she said.

    or this:

    Mitchell-Werbrich said that she tried to get a police officer to take a report immediately following the incident and later on as well, but both times was told no crime was committed because a racial slur was not used.

    Can’t arrest articulate racists who know more than one word for those people, don’t you know.

    Terrible people. Simply terrible.

      My favorite part was where Buddy For Life said it ‘can’t control what people say’ re: their volunteers

      I hope they go out of business.

    Lee Atwater would be proud of these sub-humans who insulted those young girls, if he were alive today.
