Onoz teh whales

January 17, 2008 at 12:26 am 10 comments


Yes, yes, we hear you, Greenpeace, Sea Shepherd, retarded public, and stupid governments, we know how you value the life of an animal (a rather big and majestic animal, but an animal, nonetheless, I haven’t seen an animal being able to discuss the validity of theology or the ethics of business with me or another human being, and until I see that, I do not think I’ll see it their way) over the life of a human being.

So let’s get this one thing straight. You want us to help destroy what little economic worth Japan has because they don’t agree with you? Sure thing.

So how can I do this, considering I have a somewhat vested interest in Japanese animation and such and such? What’s that you say? Denounce the culture, stop watching fansubs, help destroy the disputed platform of exposure known as fansubs, cripple and undermine the American animation scene, turn my backs on the game-translation community and give them bad press, then link everything to the current fracas over whaling or propaganda that supports whaling? You got me sold, man.

(Drm note: Sure, you may think of me as seditious (I AM) and whatnot, flame me for all I care, it’s supposed to be a sarcastic comment(if you haven’t noticed, my humor is the kind that could send me to jail, and my sarcasm isn’t that far off either) to a untenable and stupid position on the whales (Some have even advocated a boycott on all things Japanese.). Sure, they’re endangered and all, and are pretty important to the ecosystem, and I think they should have the right to live out their lives in relative peace, but I can’t agree with groups like Greenpeace saying that the whales are more important than human beings. If you look at it from a rational point of view, humans are the only creature on Earth that has achieved sentience, and no other creature has done that. And from a theological point of view, we are special in that aspect. I’m all for saving the whales, too but I’m not going to the extent of these enviroradicals and their supporters in order to do so. And just as an aside, you don’t board ships in the middle of the ocean.)

    Tell Greanpeace that they should move their resources toward saving the poor Africans, South Americans, Middle Easters, South Asians, and Native Americans. THEN they can talk to us.

    Hmmm… I wonder what a whale sandwich taste like. 😛

    Maybe whale sushi? >:P

    Please be a bit more specific as to what the hell you are ranting about, like a link to a news article. There are two stories this could be related to that I can think of:

    1) You are talking about today’s White House seeking to exempt the Navy from current environmental laws that restrict certain types of sonar usage (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/01/16/AR2008011601536.html)

    2) Greenpeace (that’s how you spell it, no Greanpeace) fighting Japanese whale hunters (http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/01/12/whale-hunters-hunted/)

    Please specify, because saying that Greenpeace activists value the life of a single whale over the life of a single human is pretty ignorant.

    For me, Greenpeace is tamer when compared to PETA.

    I couldn’t give less of a shit about the whales anyway.

    Agree with above, in terms of waste of money PETA>>>>>Greenpeace.

    Hey, I kind of find it funny that there’s a bunch of maniacs (Sea Sherpherds) that are willing to become pirates to protect whales. I mean, boarding maneuvers onto a huge whaling ship, like something from a 19th century sea battle? Hilarious! Though I kind of support them a little because there’s absolutely no need for “scientific” whaling. The whalers should pack up, go home and spend all that money on better and more productive pursuits. Like anime. Wait, bad example 🙂

    Yes don’t confuse the missions of Greenpeace and PETA. Greenpeace is an environmental group who is interested in “Defending our oceans by challenging wasteful and destructive fishing, and creating a global network of marine reserves” as one of its multiple goals, and it has other goals that have nothing to do with whales. PETA is an animal rights group, that’s quite different.

    By the way, heading this whole “So let’s get this one thing straight. You want us to help destroy what little economic worth Japan has because they don’t agree with you? Sure thing.” You are aware that it’s currently illegal for Japan to hunt whales for anything aside from scientific research right? They signed a treaty/pact/agreement/something to that affect, or joined a group that required it, I forget which. The problem is that they kill 1,000+ whales a year or whatever for “scientific research,” which most observers say is BS. So it’s not going to affect teh precious animu if less whales are killed.

    don’t go around saying that the animu scene won’t be affected by no more whaling – I know for a fact that my post-comiket bounenkai would have been 4% less delicious if it weren’t for the delicious, crimson whale sushi.

    Start reading the comments. Some people have called for an all-out boycott of all products Japanese. I’m just responding (in a horribly sarcastic tone) to some of these comments.

    And yes, I’m aware of the ruddy hypocrisy and drama and whatnot surrounding the issue.

    While I might have some grudging respect for Greenpeace for brigning light to certain issues, their actions leaves little to the imagination as to their true intentions, and their true message.

    Like Sea Shepherd, they are radicals, only their hide their extremism very well.

    I’ve read some national geographic reports some time ago and remembered that whale stocks were actually rebounding in most sectors. What’s threatening them now is global warming and noise pollution instead of overhunting…

    Come on guys, the real reason why you think humans are more important than whales is because you’re humans, not because humans are more intelligent.
