U.S. Ships Fly Navy Jack, Animal Rights Activist Worried

Posted by The Evil Emperor Mindstation @ 5/11/2005 06:01:00 PM

The Secretary of the Navy, Gordon England, had ordered that all U.S. ships shall fly the Navy Jack. The flags will replace the Union Jack aboard U.S. vessels for the duration of the War on Terror.
The Navy Jack is traditionally flown before a major ass-whoopin'

But animal rights groups have issued a stern warning. "Displaying a snake for all to see aboard an already hated American ship may incite hatred against rattlesnakes, nature's gentlest creature," said George Willborro, leading animal rights activist and speaker.
Secretary England rebuffed these claims saying "the rattlesnake lives only in sparsely populated desert areas in North America, where anti-American sentiment will be minimal, appearing mainly around Sen. Harry Reid (D,NV)."
Millions of rattlesnakes, like the one shown here, now live in fear of violent reprisals. American foreign policy to blame

But animal rights groups are still concerned. "We see this discrimination against rattlesnakes spreading like wildfire to all snakes," said Willboro. "We will see soon snakes being maltreated all over the world because of this. Snakes being decapitated, molested, tortured and generally feared is what this will devolve into." Willborro also says that the after rattlesnakes, the boa, pythons and cobras are expected to be the hardest hit.

America is fearless, the snake is fearless, and the A.R.A.'s only fear...is fear itself.

Ha! How would India (their greatest supporter against the hamburger) interpret this, as the Snake is Shiva, a God who wards off evil.

I see a Congressional inquiry coming down the road. For as we all know Congress has nothing better to do with its time like solve the Social Security funding or the border problem with Mexico. I heard that PETA was starting a letter writing crusade to save the snakes. I also heard that they are going to ask the Vatican to rewrite the bible so the snake is no the one you tempted

I like the caption about when the flag is flown. Internationalists will scratch their heads, "What is this "ass whompin"?" (heh)

Great to see an old tradition coming back.
