>Right wingers having fun? Puppy dogs, sacks and canals spring to mind...
On what do you base this strange association? I'd hazard that conservative
Republicans tend to favor hunter's rights and shy away from supporting
animal rights issues, but what, in the "neo-conservative mindset" would
compel them to torture and kill harmless puppy dogs?
Granted many of them probably couldn't draw a distinction between a
conservationist who works to protect endangered and threatened animal
species from extinction and an animal rights activist who works to reduce
the exploitation of animals in laboratories, farms and rodeos.
I could hypothetically see a situation where conservationist and animal
rights interests might clash, if the latter take such a political hard line
against animal research that it impacts research on wildlife.
Some right-wingers might lump em all (conservationists and animal rights
activists) together under the label of "bunny huggers". OTOH, what would
preclude a conservative from moderately embracing an issue like conservation
or animal rights, yet towing the rightist hard line on other issues?
