INTIMIDATION is Nathan Winograd's middle name. Let's intimidate everyone into silence. First we can call them murderers, despite stellar reputations in the humane community, then we can file lawsuits against them. Beat those non believers into silence.
What has it all come down to? Nathan Winograd is the darling of the likes of Rick Berman. Nathan Winograd parrots the talk of Berman against HSUS and the ASPCA. That talk of Winograd and Berman is designed to take away donations and thus affect the fight against agribusiness cruelty, puppy mill cruelty and dog fighting. Ask yourself, is this moral or righteous?
Robin Starr made a comment on one of Berman's latest "enterprises", Humane Society for Shelter Pets, and received a nasty note threatening a lawsuit. http://richmondspca.typepad.com/richmond-spca-blog/2011/12/tis-the-season-forthreats-our-ceo-receives-tidings-from-rick-berman.html
I understand another couple of non profits are enduring the same from HSSP.
Then to go back a bit, Winograd made himself part of a lawsuit in LA over the dog, Zephyr. Then he did the same in regards to a TNR lawsuit in LA. The LA County lawsuit really didn't go anywhere, the "rescuer" was not happy about the settlement, and Winograd used it as a PR opportunity. The TNR lawsuit was won and now LA cannot engage in TNR. Winograd vows to return. http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2010/04/14/18644737.php
So now we come to Florida, a saga is going on there and lawsuits are flying. Seems there is two sagas going on and I am late getting into the game. So, Readers, correct me if I am wrong on this.
Lawsuits are being filed by No Kill Nation, run by one of Winograds cronies and following in his footsteps by suing local rescue groups, against noted and respected rescuers. These rescuers are guilty of nothing more than asking for proof of monies being spent from a chip-in to save the dogs in the Everglades. It is a complicated issue and I would like to refer you to this link. http://squirrelsnnuts.blogspot.com/2011/12/nkn-lawsuit-battle-of-words.html
This lawsuit can affect all of us in that it wants to limit our ability to express ourselves on blogs and Facebook. I suggest that you follow it closely.
What is it all coming to? Will non profits have to fore go rescuing to spend their money on attorneys? While animals are dying in shelters, "No Kill" is preferring to intimidate those who ask for accountability via paying attorneys to file frivolous lawsuits. Winograd has always used intimidation tactics to silent the opposition. Threatening to affect donor bases of non profits by calling them murderers, etc. This is the workings of an evil mind. Winograd is tearing us apart and all that does is cause more animals to suffer and die.
