Fighting ‘Terrorism’: FBI Nabs Activists for Releasing Thousands of Mink

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has reportedly arrested two animal rights activists after they freed about 5,740 mink from farms and vandalized the houses and cars of fur industry members.

    Probably not ‘terrorism’ but definitely criminal and these ‘activists’ need to be jailed for a long time.

    but they can’t nab thousands of killers , rapists crossing US/ Mex border

    Since when was illegally releasing thousands of aliens a federal offence?

      Your analogy isn’t wrong. Same kind of thing, basically. And labelling either “terrorism” isn’t what those funds were allocated for by govts.

      Neither the minks nor the Mexicans is much of a threat to essential infrastructure or whatever.

        Non-native mink in Scotland that escaped or were “liberated” by ALF have proved damaging to the ecosystem, causing a crash in the population of native wildlife including freshwater fish, water voles, and ground nesting birds
        Mink are currently being eradicated in the interests of native species.

    Figure out how much of your money is going to this kind of “anti terrorism” fraud, and file private prosecutions against whoever is labelling this kind of thing “terrorism”. That’s a sad stupid joke.

    The whole concept of “anti terrorism” is a fraud, but this is well beyond ordinary rhetoric and into embezzling money and wasting prosecutor time seeking “terrorism” convictions that will only get thrown out by superior courts.

    This kind of thing is a civil matter, and best handled as property misdemeanors at most. No doubt the mink farmers were breaking some rules, else, why target this particular farm?

      No doubt you are intellectually challenged, else how to explain your inane comment. You really are unacquainted with the extent of this “terroristic activity”, or of the anti-intellectual focus of the movement’s adherents and supporters.
