The Circus died and no one wrote a eulogy. The death occurred while America conducted its own circus, complete with the Crooked Woman who made E-mails disappear into thin air and a yellow haired man who could stick his entire foot in his mouth.
The Ringling Brothers Circus barely received a death notice. This is a fact I find quite odd considering it was murdered. It was a slow death. That I know for a fact. It started with a 14 year legal case it fought against the Humane Society of America and other Animal Rights organizations. After it was proven that HSUS had paid a large sum for false testimony from an elephant handler (read poop scooper), the Ringling Bros won 16M in the court case. Alas, the wound didn’t heal. Under continued pressure from Left Wing animal rights activists, Ringling sent their beloved animals to pasture. Without the gentle giants, ticket sales plummeted. The Circus could hang on no longer and quietly bled to death.
I hear crickets chirping as I write and I find it unsettling. Where is the public debate? The front page story? That annoying little ticker scrolling the news at the bottom of the screen? America has lost an icon in family entertainment and no one says a word.
Do you really believe the animals that make up a circus family have a terrible life compared to the harsh realities their brothers face living in the wild (Read ivory poachers)?
But why also isn’t the known murderer celebrating the death of his victim by dancing in the streets? So as not to draw attention, of course. So as not to fall under suspicion so that WE won’t know we are next and begin to be wary of our own fate. This is a serial killer, you see. Ask Sea World, whose Killer Whale program has been set adrift through a similar formula as the circus elephant’s demise. PETA has been instrumental in blocking the breeding and transport of orcas and now Sea World has filed suit.
This Murderer, under the guise of ending animal cruelty, will stop at nothing until animals have more rights and legal protection than the humans who care for them. That is not an exaggeration. These Extremists already compare pet ownership to slave ownership.
Meanwhile, the Left riots in the streets, perhaps fearing that the yellow haired man might be the one who finally brings the murderer and others of his ilk to justice for their crimes.
To the Ringling Brothers family, I extend my sympathies. America has suffered a great loss. — Author’s name withheld as a form of Witness Protection.
