When it comes to a word to the wise, warning the American public about the fraudulent fundraising activities of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is a hot topic for hunters and non-hunters alike these days as NRAHLF.org comes across yet another video exposing how donors’ money is being rerouted to line HSUS executives’ pockets.
As for how the group continues to pull this off, it isn’t tough to figure it out when you watch its ads featuring all the heart-wrenching emotional appeals. As for the fundraising dollars HSUS does spend, it goes toward attacking mainstream American hunters and our way of life—and, of course, the National Rifle Association of America, which HSUS president and CEO Wayne Pacelle refers to as “extremist.” Now the last time I checked, “extremist,” by definition, referred to those who resort to fanatical, vicious words and actions—and often dangerous attacks. Perhaps HSUS needs a dictionary to look up the word.
If hunters have any doubt as to how radical HSUS is, they can always watch this video. It's also embedded above.
When you get to the part where it attacks the all-American NRA, which is busy fighting for our hunting rights as I type this, by the way, if you’re a hunter and you’re not already an NRA member, you’ve seen the light. It’s time to join!
