Insane Petition Calls for the White House to Declare NRA and RMEF Terrorist Groups - 7

Another absurd anti-hunting campaign has surfaced, and this time activists are demanding the White House declare all "anti-predatory animal" organizations as domestic terrorist groups. You might be surprised by who makes this list.

The online petition specifically names organizations like the National Rifle Association, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and Safari Club International. The petition states:

"Groups like Lobo Watch, Big Game Forever, Idaho Anti-Wolf Coalition, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, NRA, Safari Club, etc., are a menace in our midst. Not only do many of them want our native predators like bears, wolves, wild cats, and the like decimated to the brink of extinction, but some of them have the nerve to harass, threaten, and downright intimidate anyone who dares to oppose them, even the government. And they've got some powerful people in their corner, too. They throw their mammoth monetary weight around, and think they can buy their way into power in America and put down anyone who's got a backbone and might provide resistance. It's time to put these groups in their place and strike them down. Time to protect our carnivorous wildlife from those who seek to decimate them!"

Even if you go along with logic behind this petition (for argument's sake only of course) the facts are just not there. Here's what the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation actually has to say about predators in North America...

"The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation supports the science-based management of wolves and other predators. We fully embrace the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, which holds that fish and wildlife belong to all citizens and are to be scientifically managed through hunting and other means, so thriving populations can be sustained forever."

Not exactly a terroristic threat, if you ask me.

The petition currently has about 500 signatures, and it needs 25,000 by December 20 to even receive an official response from the Obama administration. No single activist group appears responsible for the campaign. According to Infowars.com, a number of activists are promoting the petition via social media.

Where do these kooks come from? They try the usual "us vs. them" crap, ignoring the fact we ARE them. I'll give up hunting animals if I can hunt the activists instead.

Peteyraymond: I haven't heard of that group, but the Animal Liberation Front has been designated an urban terrorist organization by the FBI. They've vandalized fur farms, fire-bombed a trapping supply company, and been implicated in a number of other arson attacks. Not nice people, to say the least.

Isn't there a radical group that goes by the name Earth Liberation Front (ELF)? They were the ones that torched a number of new homes being built (I believe in Colorado) because they objected to trees being cut down to clear the lots. THOSE are the real terrorists that should be declared a terrorist group.

So the NRA, RMEF, Safari Club, etc. "harass, threaten and intimidate their opponents? Sounds like the typical behavior of any number of anti-hunting groups to me!

There are always a few crazies around.

As far as PETA goes, we've all noticed they like to throw paint on dowagers wearing fur coats. They do not, however, annoy bikers wearing leather and colors. But I'd like to watch if they ever try it.

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Can we start a petition to have PETA declared a terrorist group, too? They cause more destruction and havoc than some actual terror groups do.
