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.
