That was another weird experience, which I had during my afternoon walk in downtown Toronto in the end of May. As it often happens, I was not prepared for my encounter with the Sea Shepherd loons and I had to rely on my iPhone to document the event.
Anyway, right in the middle of Toronto, at Yonge and Bloor, right in front of the Hudson’s Bay Company store (a company founded on the fur trade, which built Canada) we had a demonstration by a group which persistently tries to destroy Canada as we know it.
The reason for shouting and screaming performed by that weird bunch was their founder and supreme master’s detention in Germany. The German government captured him on an international arrest warrant and was in a process of extraditing him to Costa Rica to face criminal charges.
A few years ago Watson and his thugs attacked a Costa Rican fishing boat. In a small pamphlet they were handing out at the rally, Sea Shepherd tried to whitewash the incident. They explained that everything was filmed and the attack was justified, because Watson was protecting the sharks. (Yeah, right – the Nazis also filmed their atrocities.)
The funny part is that now they want to present Watson as a “political prisoner”.
A few years ago they had a similar experience in Japan. Bethune, one of their metrosexual leaders, was arrested and tried for his terrorist actions.
Those incidents are not odd exceptions – they are the normal way in which Sea Shepherd operates. It is not a secret that the kingdom of radical environmentalism is littered with all kinds of weirdos, but Sea Shepherd is the closest to a real terrorist group.
They look like a strange hybrid between medieval pirates and Italian fascists. Even their flag is designed after its pirate original.
And just like the fascists, they hate people and are more than ready to exterminate them in the name of saving the animals and the “planet”. They are also fierce proponents of veganism, although I doubt it that Paul Watson grew his big belly on bean sprouts and semolina.
Those modern pirates are supposed to fight injustice in the seas, but they don’t go after everybody. They carefully select easy targets, where they can cause maximum damage with little consequences for themselves. Japan is country that would go out of its way to prove its non-violent ways and the fat loser Watson knows that.
Costa Rica is even smaller and definitely an insignificant country (they don’t even have an army).
Why doesn’t Sea Shepherd attack a Russian whaling ship? It’s because the eco-terrorists know very well that in the best case they may get a good beating, with many other options for the worst case.
What about going after a Chinese shark fishing boat? After all, China is the largest shark fin consumer in the world. It’s because most likely those failures’ bones would end up on the bottom of the ocean after their beloved sharks strip them from their flesh.
From that point of view, Sea Shepherd is no different than any other terrorist group – they are pathetic cowards, who try to hurt the weakest.
What makes them especially dangerous is the fact that they try actively to implement their murderous ideas. Just like the Nazis had Hitler’s Mein Kampf to look up, Sea Shepherd has the writings of their Fuhrer Paul Watson to follow.
In 2008 Watson published on the movement’s website an article titled “The Beginning of the End for Life as We Know it on Planet Earth?” That’s the Sea Shepherd plan for extermination of mankind, much worse than Mein Kampf.
He starts with the common Gaia crap, peddled by most environmentalists. You know the drill – that everything on Earth is interconnected in a marvelous system:
The planet’s ecosystem is a collective living organism and operates very much like the human body. Water is the blood of the earth. It provides the same function in the body as it does for the earth. Water transports nutrients to the land and transports waste to the sea or more specifically the estuaries and salt marshes that function as the liver for the earth, cleansing the water of the toxins. Water circulates through the ecosystem from the sea into the clouds falling back onto the land and returning to the sea again. It is pumped by the energy of the sun, the heart of the earth. It’s a continuous cyclic movement of nutrient bearing, waste removing action that keeps the land fertile.
However, it doesn’t take long for Paul to go further. He quickly finds the main reason for all of the planet’s misfortunes – it’s the humans, stupid. The misanthropic ramblings just keep flowing:
Humans are presently acting upon this body in the same manner as an invasive virus with the result that we are eroding the ecological immune system.
A virus kills its host and that is exactly what we are doing with our planet’s life support system. We are killing our host the planet Earth.
I was once severely criticized for describing human beings as being the “AIDS of the Earth.” I make no apologies for that statement. Our viral like behaviour can be terminal both to the present biosphere and ourselves. We are both the pathogen and the vector. But we also have the capability of being the anti-virus if only we can recognize the symptoms and address the disease with effective measures of control.
There was an old documentary clip from the 1970’s where David Suzuki compares the mankind with “vermin”. The new generation of eco-fascists goes even further – they don’t see anything of value in mankind. From that point of view, one may conclude that Watson and his retarded followers can help tremendously the present biosphere by committing a collective suicide.
But that’s not what you hear from them. Apparently they have no intentions to disappear, but they have some very well prepared plans about what they’ll do with the rest of us. There is nothing nice about those plans:
We should not be living in human communities that enclose tiny preserved ecosystems within them. Human communities should be maintained in small population enclaves within linked wilderness ecosystems. No human community should be larger than 20,000 people and separated from other communities by wilderness areas. Communication systems can link the communities.
In other words, people should be placed in parks within ecosystems instead of parks placed in human communities. We need vast areas of the planet where humans do not live at all and where other species are free to evolve without human interference.
It’s a pretty easy solution – Watson simply wants to put all mankind in small zoo units surrounded by forests and wild life. As of now, it might be difficult to lock up all people, but he has a good plan of action in his mind:
We need to radically and intelligently reduce human populations to fewer than one billion. We need to eliminate nationalism and tribalism and become Earthlings. And as Earthlings, we need to recognize that all the other species that live on this planet are also fellow citizens and also Earthlings. This is a planet of incredible diversity of life-forms; it is not a planet of one species as many of us believe.
I don’t know about you, but I think that the paragraph above is one of the most horrific calls for genocide I have ever seen published. There is no way to intelligently get rid of six billion people. No matter how you’ll do it, the extermination of so many people will be an awful genocide. Watson’s intentions dwarf anything that Genghis Khan, the Turks, Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot put together have ever done.
But that’s not enough – Watson keeps swinging and attacks our civilization with his full force:
We need to stop burning fossil fuels and utilize only wind, water, and solar power with all generation of power coming from individual or small community units like windmills, waterwheels, and solar panels.
Sea transportation should be by sail. The big clippers were the finest ships ever built and sufficient to our needs. Air transportation should be by solar powered blimps when air transportation is necessary.
All consumption should be local. No food products need to be transported over hundreds of miles to market. All commercial fishing should be abolished. If local communities need to fish the fish should be caught individually by hand.
What a vision! No industry, no transportation, no coal, no nuclear power, no travel, no import, no export – even the cavemen in Afghanistan won’t like such a world. But Watson is not done yet, he also knows what we should eat:
Preferably vegan and vegetarian diets can be adopted. We need to eliminate herds of ungulates like cows and sheep and replace them with wild ungulates like bison and caribou and allow those species to fulfill the proper roles in nature. We need to restore the prey predator relationship and bring back the wolf and the bear. We need the large predators and ungulates, not as food, but as custodians of the land that absorbs the carbon dioxide and produces the oxygen. We need to live with them in mutual respect.
We need to remove and destroy all fences and barriers that bar wildlife from moving freely across the land. We need to lower populations of domestic housecats and dogs. Already the world’s housecats consume more fish than all the world’s seals and we have made the cow into the largest aquatic predator on the planet because more than one half of all fish taken from the sea is converted into meal for animal feed.
Even more wisdom – we need to kill all cows, sheep, dogs and cats and replace them with wild beasts, which would be able to roam arounde freely… but they’ll “respect” us. The population control should be ongoing:
Who should have children? Those who are responsible and completely dedicated to the responsibility which is actually a very small percentage of humans. Being a parent should be a career. Whereas some people are engineers, musicians, or lawyers, others with the desire and the skills can be fathers and mothers. Schools can be eliminated if the professional parent is also the educator of the child.
And who is going to say who could have children? Fat Paul and his deranged followers?
So the pathetic misfits in the picture, who can’t survive a day in the wilderness, will be able to say who would live and who would die.
Watson’s writings sound like ramblings of an escaped mental patient, but the scary part is that his terrorist group is supported by many celebrities and regular idiots, who one day may turn his genocidal plan into a reality.
Come on, Paul, are you that crazy?
It seems to me that he sees the future as an idyllic village, where seductive trannies sip margaritas and conceptual artists discus their projects over martinis while observing the lions and the lambs walking together around the village square, like in a picture of Heaven from a Jehovah’s Witnesses booklet.
I see a completely different picture. In a future where Watson has destroyed the industries, the mining and all transportation, there will be no solar panels, windmills or phones – simply because nobody would have the tools to build them.
All sensitive trannies and sophisticated artists would be quickly wiped out – either by the wild beasts, who respect you only when they are not hungry, or by the lack of medications for their complex diseases, anxieties and allergies. And I suspect that the beasts would go after Watson’s ass first – it would provide them with nutritious food for a few days.
Even if the Watson vegan gang takes a hold on all weapons, they’ll run out of ammunition soon, because nobody will be able to make it. When things go that way and people start fighting with bows and arrows and stone axes, I can assure you that the feeble vegans would be the first ones to disappear.
The reason is more than obvious – when everybody is cold, sick and starving, the last person they’ll listen to would be a vegan lunatic (even if he has a gun). In that situation the usual strong bully will take over, like the type you see when you wander away from the tourist areas in Rio de Janeiro – a muscular guy in a wop t-shirt with a mean look, who won’t hesitate at all to kill you in order to get what he wants from you.
I simply can’t believe that a mentally ill person like Watson who wants to destroy the world could have any followers. But again, I probably give too much credit to people’s intelligence. After all, Jim Jones convinced 900 of his followers to kill themselves. Watson for now just asks his people to risk their lives by attacking ships.
I am sure that things would get much worse with that scary group…
