Animal Rights Groups Earn Millions through Multifarious Propaganda Machinery

The animal rightists are constantly lamenting the fact that it is immoral to make money out of wild animals. This is a laugh because the animal rightist NGOs make hundreds of millions of US dollars every year from their propaganda campaigns.

Without any doubt, the top echelon NGOs make infinitely more money from the propagation of their lies about wildlife and its management than does any single entity of wildlife management business.

According to the people who have examined their money making programmes, the International Fund for Animal Welfare – better known as IFAW – (the biggest animal “rights” organisation in the world), for example, are said to command an annual income of over 200 million US dollars; and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) – according to the American Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – regularly earn 150 million US dollars a year.

Animal rights groups, generally, know to keep their mouths shut about their earnings but organisations like “Charity Watch” keeps tabs on such information; and they tell us that only a tiny fraction of the monies so hustled-from-the-public is ever used for the purpose for which it was collected.

How do they earn such fortunes? They do it through their multifarious propaganda machinery!

NB: Propaganda, by definition, is: “The spreading of ideas, information or rumour for the purposes of promoting an ideal – or injuring an institution, cause or person – by any means true or false.” So propaganda has nothing to do with telling the truth!

For example: practically every animal rightist NGO in the world – during the 18 months run up to CITES CoP17 in Johannesburg last year, told the world – repeatedly and continuously – that the African elephant was facing extinction; and each one of these NGOs solicited funds from the general public in the First world, ostensibly, to enable them to “save” the elephant from this ignoble fate. First of all, the African elephant is not facing extinction!! Nowhere near it. So the story they told their ignorant publics was a lie. But it was, for them, a “good” lie because they were able to generate a great deal of hype, hysteria and emotion over the illusion that they created! Now – to understand the ‘workings’ of their propaganda machinery – all we have to do is examine this particular state of affairs in simple detail.

Was that story a lie? Yes, it was – because in southern Africa alone all elephant populations are “excessive”.

This means they have all exceeded (by far) the carrying capacities of their habitats; they are destroying their habitats; and, in accordance with the principles of “best practice” management, this demands population reductions (to start with) of at least 50%.

And if this does not happen, their sanctuaries will lose their biological diversities – forever.

Creating and disseminating such an illusion (such a lie) – for the express purpose of soliciting funds from the general public – constitutes “fraud”.

When such fraud is repeated, it is called “racketeering”. And when that “racket” is repeated by several entities it becomes “organised crime”.  All this needs to be tested in a court of law and, hopefully, one day soon that will happen. But THIS is the “nature” of the animal rights animal!

    Our last visit to chobe showed us the destruction made by too many ellephants to the trees and the soil was bare in places ; ditto for areas around satara in the knp when we visited last year.

    This was my comment ; actually on our trip in bot from south gate moremi to savuti and to chobe my wife counted 400 + elephants ; just roughly as we saw them ; then in chobe most of the ground bare and depleted of trees in places.

      (1). This is absolutely true. Animal rightist NGOs make hundred of millions of US dollars annually through their dubious propaganda machinery.
      (2). What Joao has recorded here – with regard to his observation on the terrible state of the wildlife habitats in Botswana – is something that I have been predicting and telling the world about for the last 25 years. But nobody, it seems, listens. It is time that ordinary people in this world rose up from their lethargy and started a movement to alert the whole world to the tragedy that is Botswana today. The wildlife and wild places of Botswana is NOT just owned by President Ian Khama… it is a world heritage that the politicians of Botswana are destroying right before our eyes.
