The Bunny Wabbit Militia issues a chilling call to arms:

Militant animal rights activists today claimed responsibility for bombing two firms near San Francisco and threatened to target their staff and customers too.

In an anonymous email posted on the Internet, the shadowy Revolutionary Cells group took credit for a September 25 bombing of a health product distributor and for an August 28 pipe-bomb attack on a biotech firm.

In their e-mail, posted on the website of Bite Back magazine, Revolutionary Cells threatened to double the size of its bombs targeting the companies in the future.

And here is the email:

We will now be doubling the size of every device we make. Today it is 10lbs, tomorrow 20....until your buildings are nothing more than rubble. It is time for this war to truely have two sides. No more will all of the killing be done by the oppressors, now the oppressed will strike back. We will be non-violent when the these people are non-violent to the animal nations.

The animal nations? Like Puppystan and Owlstralia? The note continues:

In memory of all of those fallen before us in the war for liberation: Jill Phipps (animal activist), Barry Horne (ALF) [he mustíve been the guy inside the costume] Olaia Kastresana (ETA), Arkaitz Otazua (ETA), Angayarkanni (LTTE), Babu (LTTE), Bobby Sands (IRA), Patsy O'Hara (INLA), Carlos Guiliani (anti-globilization martyr), Lee Kyung-hae (farmer and anti-globablization victim), and many more on numerous other fronts. We won't forget you, we won't let your deaths be in vain.

Iím sure they all thank you for that. Especially Lee Kyung-hae, the suicidal Korean farmer who kept his cattle penned inside electric fences.

Who are the revolutionary cells? It is an anti-gmo activist destroying a gmo crop, it is a basque youth driving a car packed with explosives destined for a spanish politician, it is a queer bashing back, a rape victim putting a bullet in the rapist, a corsican nationalist planting a bomb at a french bank, it is a cincinatti riot in response to police brutality ...

It is an idiot kid who cannot spell, a commie who doesn't capitalise proper nouns, a tard whose worldview will collapse as soon as he realises that the above-listed entities share no common aim. What happens to the "revolutionary cells" when the queer bashing back happens to be a GM food scientist, and the Basque bomber is a rapist?

I think they should all follow Bobby Sands lead.

Posted by: Gilly at October 2, 2003 at 12:54 PM

They are pretty scary; stupid, have time and money to spend on frivolous (but dangerous) activities and they have "convictions".
To compound my paranoia, I've just read about a group called Code Pink, who are "feminist anti-globalisation peace activists".
Will these groups keep multiplying? Read Ionesco's Rhinoceros for how this can happen. There is no escape.
Meet you all in the desert, bring your survival kits and hunting gear...

The Guardian isn't pulling the leg? A 30h. `farm? Stuck on a steep mountain face? Cable car and lots of other machinery and plant?Am I missing something, the `farmer' with a `degree' in `ag.science' didn't over-capitlaise a tad? Seems his younger siblings inherited the genes for high IQ , he inherited te leftovers; recessive gene for stupidity. Much like the animal liber murdering bit of scum.

As for South Korean Government opening up markets in commodities, nothing to do with : while famer Bunny Wunny seeks to live the life of the prosperous while enjoying the comforts of a rustic, polite for peasant with recessive genes, much like French Farmers on their Oz sized urban houseblock `farm',everyone else can starve, so long as Bunny Wunny rustic is happy. See,that is true sums up the Guardians not tear jerking bit of crap.Who wrote it, Pilger - he does write for that ghastly rag.

Tell the little shits from Revolutionary Cells that I'm going deer hunting this month. I'd love to have them along.

I give my respoense in song (to the tune of "She'll be coming round the Mountain"):

"Would you like a chicken supper Bobby Sands?
Would you like a chicken supper Bobby Sands?
Would you like a chicken supper

Math problem: How many doublings must the 10-lb. bomb go through before fusion weapons are required to provide the needed explosive yield?

Seems quicker just to cut straight to nuclear bomb.

The multiplication of the "angry minorities" as demonstrated by this example of reactionary cells
needs to taken seriously.
I ask why is this phenomenom occurring?

What about some of you who follow the Tim Blair pages putting thinking cap on & coming up with some theories. It's just too simplistic to dismiss these people as young idiots or people with a narrow ideological view.
Is there perhaps an underlying common element?

Thoughts? Gadfly

Thanks for your posting. I'll try & locate your referenced publication. Cheers Gadfly

How soon until the animal nations send suicide bombers????

the combinations are endless. The main aim though is how to blame this on Bush?

Posted by: Rob at October 2, 2003 at 01:46 PM

How about,young idiots convinced of a narrow ideological view who suddenly realise that that can get them off the hook scott free for committing murder and mayhem.

Posted by: d at October 2, 2003 at 02:00 PM

I wish they'd call these scum what they are: TERRORISTS. They don't care who they kill as long as Flopsy, Mopsy, and CottonTail are 'freed'.

My sister works for a biotech company. Among the items she has worked on is an artificial pancreas.
This company develops all sorts of 'spare parts' for humans who could die without the part.

Of course, once the part has been developed it gets tested on animals. Then it has to go through a lot more tests before being approved for use in humans.

Computer modelling, or simulation, will only tell so much, in terms of how it will work in a living organism. It can't tell 100%. We need to test the devices in animals.

My sister has witnessed how the animals, that are used in testing, are treated. They are given pain medication so they don't suffer. They are treated very well.

If I had a loved one that could be saved by an artificial part, or a medicine, I'd say it was worth using animals to test on. Better to find most of the flaws in animals rather than in humans.

My sister, and many of her co-workers, have obtained gun permits. They practice about once a month at a shooting range. This is because their lives have been threatened. Their company has moved about 3 times in the last 7 years. They have plain clothes detail police monitor their building.

Many of the people my sister works with are in this field because they want to help save human lives. Many have had a family member die because they had some 'defective human part'. They want to help create the 'replacement parts' so others won't die.

It's crazy that people who want to help save human lives are in danger by scum who value animals more than people. I hope everyone who is involved in these animal-rights terrorist groups hold true to their beliefs.

They should never take any sort of modern medicine, even if it means they will die, because most medicine has animal testing behind it. It goes without saying they should refuse 'replacement parts'. I wonder if any of them have died for their beliefs, rather than use something that was tested on animals?

Revolutionary Cells = Communist Cancer

Does this mean we get to shoot vegans? I do hope so.

I would dearly love for every single member of the ELF/ALF/SHAC loony eco-freakazoid mob to get a particularly aggressive form of leukaemia, and then watch them all refuse chemotherapy 'cos dear little fluffy rodents had been sacrificed to test its efficacy.

Sooner these drooling imbeciles get shipped to Guantanamo the better.

Posted by: David Gillies at October 2, 2003 at 03:27 PM

These are the same people who want to bring the Cormo sheep back in order to slaughter them!

They talk about oppression, but want to impose their people-hating, animal-loving, tree-hugging, vegan, anthropomorphism onto everyone else. We have to fight back - bomb for bomb.

The armies of the oppressed are on the move! Chickens with uzis are coming, singing,
I am Animal, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore...

Posted by: Freddyboy at October 2, 2003 at 03:35 PM

I dipped into Nibble Back and ordered myself one of their ALF car air fresheners (it kills the smell of all those stolen chickens in the car, while you're liberating them). It must be named after the guy in the suit, as Tim said. It'll always remind of the late, little, wisecracking runt. Makes me come over all sentimental for the '80s.

Posted by: Maxi at October 2, 2003 at 03:45 PM

Forget the animal, they're easy. It's the insectoid nation that should have us worried - there's billions and billions of them. Lets hope they never unionise.

Cows with Guns?

Reminds me of this paradox:

If you see an endangered animal eating an endagered plant, should you shoot it ?

Lost endless sleep on that one

Posted by: Osamas Psychotic Proctologist at October 2, 2003 at 05:02 PM

Is the endangered animal really tasty? Would the endangered plant make a nice side salad?

Yes to both = good lunch.

Posted by: Jake D at October 2, 2003 at 05:06 PM


Posted by: tim at October 2, 2003 at 05:28 PM

I missed lunch today. A nice vegan salad with a side order of endangered animal (wombat?) would go down well. Or some lamb chops well seasoned in the sea air.

Posted by: Freddyboy at October 2, 2003 at 05:47 PM

Now Jake D, did you have to go and mention lunch? You know that's all Tim thinks about, 'cos the trolls tell us so.

Tim, here's something that might put you off your next lunch at Charcoal Charlie's. Just around the corner is Bondi Public School. In many respects an ordinary primary school, its one claim to fame is that JOHN PILGER WENT THERE.

Maybe someone should put up a sign sometime to mark the scholarly genesis of the Great Man?

Posted by: The Mongrel at October 2, 2003 at 05:48 PM

Theyre a weird mob. I assume their motto comes from the Marlon Brando quote in The Wild Ones:

Q: What are you rebelling against?
Biker Marlon: Whadda you got?

Presumably the ETA fallen were bullfight aficionados and Bobby Sands might well have kicked his cat.

Bombing is dope, man!

Posted by: Dave F at October 2, 2003 at 07:20 PM

History will remember the War on Terror as the first "perfect" war: The terrorists wanted to die for their causes, and we wanted to kill them.

Posted by: Aaron at October 2, 2003 at 07:26 PM

"In memory of all of those fallen before us in the war for liberation..."

Jill Phipps (animal activist) - a grown adult who jumped out in front of a moving heavy goods vehicle and was run over.
Barry Horne (ALF) - an arsonist thug who starved himself to death.
Bobby Sands (IRA) - a murdering thug who starved himself to death.
Patsy O'Hara (INLA) - a murdering thug who starved herself to death.
Lee Kyung-hae (farmer and anti-globablization victim) - who stabbed himself to death by accident in a publicity stunt gone horribly wrong.

Some heroes.

Posted by: Rob at October 2, 2003 at 09:02 PM

What about the uprising of the vegetable nations?
All those cucumbers exploited in pornographic videos, fruit and vegetables thrown live into blenders and boiling water, or cut to pieces and thrown into hot oil!
Oh the humanity! I'm off to plant a pipe bomb up Captain Birdseye's browneye.
In saladarity with my clorophyl bretheren!

Posted by: Habib at October 2, 2003 at 10:37 PM

it is a cincinatti riot in response to police brutality


More proof that the left never lets go of a myth. Of the supposed 14 "innocent" victims of police brutality in Cincinnati, most had at the time they became "victims" been trying to kill police -- either by dragging them to death, shooting them, or trying to brain them with a brick. The exceptions were investigated out the wazoo, and -- gasp! -- police who over-stepped the bounds were punished!

The 2001 riot in Cincinnati wasn't an "uprising"; it was a race riot.

Posted by: Robert Crawford at October 2, 2003 at 11:51 PM

Does anybody remember the big brouhaha when a baboon heart was transplanted into a child (early 80s, I think it was)? Horrors(!! - mustn't forget the exclamation points) that we should sacrifice a baboon to save a child.

Posted by: Ken Summers at October 3, 2003 at 01:03 AM

Here's the "Cows with Guns" Flash, if you guys haven't seen it. It's hilarious.


Posted by: CBK at October 3, 2003 at 02:09 AM

...I always wondered if Cincinnati was named after a semi-obscure Roman...You know, first couple generations of Americans seem obsessed with Roman history...

Posted by: Matt from Vegas at October 3, 2003 at 02:55 AM

That bomb exploded one block from my wife's work. A message to these fucktards. My wife is my life. If she becomes one of your victims, you will not like it. I am a meat-eating, gun-owning, straight white male.

Posted by: Eat-Tasty-Animals at October 3, 2003 at 02:58 AM

Lee Kyung-hae is an anti-globablization VICTIM! At least they're admitting that the anti-globablization movement *has* victims!

Habib, re: vegetables --


Posted by: Robin Munn at October 3, 2003 at 03:27 AM

Matt from Vegas,

Cincinnati was named for the Society of the Cincinnati (formed in 1783 by Continental Officers), which was named after Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus. Washington was the organization's first president. Cincinnatus was the citizen-soldier who left his farm during a crisis to serve as dictator (in the Roman sense), quelled the disturbances in 16 days, laid down his dictatorship, declined a triumph or any honors, and went back to his home and family. He was a Roman (and subsequent early American) hero - a model of republican modesty and virtue. So, yeah.

Posted by: E.A. at October 3, 2003 at 04:35 AM

Plenty of work for CIB and the courts. All those murderers of plants - greenies, vegans, ALF, and etc.Since a penalty for murder in the U.S. is death, the gallows will be worked over-time. Yay.

Posted by: d at October 3, 2003 at 09:41 AM

Some things never change. The Australian poet James Brunton Stephens said it all in his poem "The Gentle Anarchist" over 100 years ago. The poem can be read at http://www.ozconservative.com/gentleanarchist.htm

Posted by: Mark Richardson at October 3, 2003 at 10:25 AM

Yeah, I'm doing a personal rummage through Roman history myself hence the question.

Taking a US Military History class and today we covered post Revolutionary War, pre-Constitution era, and the parallels between Cincinnatus and George Washington during that time (1783-85) is so obvious, I don't know how anyone can talk about Washington and not mention Cincinnatus. Uncanny similarities.

Posted by: Matt from Vegas at October 3, 2003 at 01:47 PM

Eating Plants Is Murder.
The Penalty For Murder Is Death.
Animals (and Vegans) Eat (and therefore Murder) Plants.
Animals Are Sentenced To Death.
We (the Carnivores) are the Executioners.

simple, really.......

That's no ordinary rabbit -- it's got a vicious streak a mile wide! Look at the teeth! Look at the bones! It'll do you in!

Posted by: Sean at October 3, 2003 at 02:45 PM

I think Patsy O'Hara of the INLA was a bloke.
I was rather surprised to see their names mentioned in this diatribe I must say. Andreas Baader, on the other hand, must be thinking "What am I? Chopped Liver?"

A tear always runs down my cheek when I hear this song. The link only plays part of the song, but at least enough to get the flavor of the thing.

You will need RealPlayer to play this file.

"Carrot Juice Is Murder" - Arrogant Worms

Listen up brothers and sisters come hear my desperate tale
I speak of our friends of nature trapped in the dirt like a jail
Vegetables live in oppression, served on our tables each night
This killing of veggies is madness, I say we take up the fight
Salads are only for murderers, coleslaw's a fascist regime
Don't think that they don't have feelings, just cause a radish can't scream

I've heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (having their insides revealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (burning off calories)
How do you think that feels (bet it hurts really bad)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (and that's a real crime)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (let my vegetables go)
It's time to stop all this gardening (it's dirty as hell)
Let's call a spade a spade (is a spade is a spade is a spade)

I saw a man eating celery, so I beat him black and blue
If he ever touches a sprout again, I'll bite him clean in two
I'm a political prisoner, trapped in a windowless cage
Cause I stopped the slaughter of turnips by killing five men in a rage
I told the judge when he sentenced me, "This is my finest hour,
I'd kill those farmers again just to save one more cauliflower"


How low as people do we dare to stoop,
Making young broccolis bleed in the soup?
Untie your beans, uncage your tomatoes
Let potted plants free, don't mash that potato!
Oh spare the spud! Eat a cow instead!

I've heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (fates in the stir-fry are sealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (you fat gourmet slob)
How do you think that feels? (leave them out in the field)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (V8's genocide)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (yes, your composts are graves)
It's time to stop all this gardening (take up macrame)
Let's call a spade a spade
(is a spade, is a spade, is a spade, is a spade......)

Power to the peas! Give peas a chance!
all we are saying, is give peas a chance
