"See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" is commonly used to describe someone willfully turning a blind eye to the immorality of an act in which they are involved.
My readers know that I have a problem with the importing of dogs when the local shelters are still euthanizing. Brenda Barnette, while in Seattle, was doing this importation, illegally I might add, and at the same time was working with Claire Davis and Kim Sgro to "create" instability in the King County shelters for Barnette's advantage. Note that Claire Davis used the term "create" in a letter to Dow Constantine when he turned against this mutant clan. http://workingtohelpanimalstodaytomorrow.blogspot.com/2010/06/terrorist-or-idiots-you-decide.html Can't chalk it off to a slip of the tongue since Davis is an attorney and well aware of the English language usage. I feel this importation scheme is not to save pets in as much as it is being used to keep the "rescues" in business while it puts the pressure on shelters to go "No Kill". Taking homes from shelter animals is immoral and these "rescues" doing the importation are more guilty of shelter pets dying than the shelter ever could be.
In conjunction with this stance, there is an excellent article in Opposing Views about a recent exportation of LA City dogs to Canada. http://www.opposingviews.com/i/l-a-shelter-dogs-transported-to-canada-rescue-or-ruse This article points out some of the problems with these exportations, like a lack of proper followup. One YouTube video shows what has happened on another exportation by those foolish LA rescue groups who believe that they are saving pets.
Also of note is Barnette's feeble attempt to offset her lack of responsibility in this matter. She has given orders to these "rescues" that they must qualify the receiving rescue and the only qualification is that they be "No Kill". YET BARNETTE IS AWARE OF HER FRIEND, KIM SGRO, WHO SENT KATRINA DOGS TO A "NO KILL". ALTHOUGH SGRO WAS TOLD THIS "NO KILL" WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A HOARDER, SHE THREATENED PEOPLE WITH A LAWSUIT RATHER THAN CHECKING IT OUT. THEY FOUND THE KATRINA DOGS STILL IN THE SAME CRATES, SOME DEAD, MONTHS LATER. http://www.komonews.com/news/archive/4167541.html
http://www.inhumane.org/data/T&WHanson.htm Do you have any idea how much the term "no kill" is used by non profits and they turn out to be abusers and hoarders? It is almost commonplace now to hear about these "No Kill" abusers. Just like using the term "Humane Society", "No Kill" is now a generic term that anyone can use, doesn't make it so however.
This isn't about saving lives, this is about making money, brokering dogs and trying to cram "No Kill" down our throats. One pitiful blog in LA has a video of this last transport, only thing is that the video is not of this last transport, maybe another one, but not the last one. The last transport was done with an individual and not a very nice one either. I ask you if this one person was able to take all these dogs on walks or if he allowed them to sit in their poop and urine for about a day. This blogger is a real nut case who supported Boks, then didn't support Boks, hated the ADL-LA, and now is in bed with the ADL-LA, just can't make up his mind. I doubt he has one really. Now he is kissing up to Barnette just like he kissed up to Boks, refusing to see the evidence in front of his nose.
Use your heads people. These "rescues" expect us to believe that there are places that have no problems with a pet overpopulation. Course isn't that the philosophy of "No Kill" no pet overpopulation? None of these "rescues" have investigated whether the local shelters where these imported dogs are going are still euthanizing. As long as those local shelters are euthanizing for time and space, it is morally wrong to send more dogs into the area. They aren't saving lives, they are taking lives. And most of them are non profits. Do their donors understand what they are doing, much less agree with it. We donate locally because we want to see the benefits locally. It's a scam, plain and simple, a devious plot to force more killing of shelter animals so these cultists can push Nathan Winograd's program. There's many more effective ways to save shelter animals, but this ain't one of them.
