Black “Role Models” Defend Vick

It was no big surprise when the NAACP defended Vick. The NAACP would defend a stone-cold serial killer if he happened to be black, because obviously if a black person breaks the law it’s whitey’s fault for oppressing his ancestors 140 years ago. Never mind that hundreds of thousands of white Americans died during the Civil War to free them.

And then Whoopi Goldberg defended Vick because “in Virginia, it’s normal to fight dogs.” I imagine that most of Virginia would take exception to that characterization, but what do I know? Regardless, it’s still hard to believe someone would honestly defend a man who admits to killing and torturing dogs. But whatever, we all know that Whoopi is a bleeding heart and an “advocate” for black people.

Now today on CNN, read this story: Where is the outrage over human abuse? where basically the point is that we’re all mad about Vick torturing dogs but we don’t get that upset when someone beats up a person.

Ok, certainly a valid point, albeit incorrect. You see, none of us can imagine hurting a dog. Dogs are naturally friendly, naturally want to make humans happy. Dogs are innocent, and if you feed them they’ll love you forever, even if you have a bad day and kick them. Dogs are intuitive, and they can tell when you’re upset, and they try to make it better.

People have very few if any of those qualities. Is there anyone among us that hasn’t met a person that was just asking for it? I’ve never met a dog that I thought “wow, that dog is really a jerk, I’d like to torture it,” but I’ve definitely met people that I thought “man, if the police investigators weren’t so thorough, I’d definitely kill him.” I don’t mean literally, but think about the people you know. I’m positive there are people that you would like to hurt, maim, or kill. Now think about the dogs you know…

They’re all nice, right?

Vick is a despicable human being and is reaping what he sowed.

    I honestly don’t think Whoopi was defending him per se – she said that dog-fighting is common in parts of the south, and that some people who grew up with it don’t think it’s wrong, and that might be what was going on with Michael Vick. (I think that’s bullshit, because his own father has spoken publicly about advising his son FOR YEARS about how wrong it was.) But I still don’t think she was defending him. I think (ok, I hope) she was trying to shine a light on the fact that there is a whole culture of people in this country that think this is alright.

    And I think for CNN to compare outrage over animal abuse to human abuse is pretty retarded. There’s no outrage because people don’t really care about other people when it comes right down to it.

    You could say the very same thing about slavery. In some parts of the country back in slavery days, it was considered normal. People who grew up with it did not see it as wrong. Might be a truth, but it’s bogus to the very last drop. Ya know?

    I live in Virginia and no it is not normal. Does WG spend time in Virginia?

    Another thing – eating meat and buying leather isn’t much different than fighting dogs. What says that one animal is more important than another. Pigs are smarter than dogs but people eat them all the time.

    In some cultures it is great to eat dogs and cats yet cows are revered. Who is wrong us or them? Both.

    I had the same arguement with my in laws over lunch. They were sitting and eating bacon sandwiches talking about how animal cruelty is so bad. They said it’s ok to eat meat and all but bad to hurt a dog. I said, Umm no not really.

    People think of a lot of excuses to justify the things they like.

    I HAVE met a couple of dogs that I want to strangle. But you’re right there are more people out there that need a good choking, or holding them underwater until the bubbles stop.
