There isnt really anything I feel I need to say about it.
Marino thinks so too. After the article was published, she wanted it pulled:
Marino was fully aware during the interview that she was talking with a blogger from the Southern Poverty Law Center, even volunteering that she is familiar with the SPLC’s history of denouncing radical animal rights activists like the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). She approved a transcript of her interview, writing in an E-mail, “I think you captured everything I said perfectly.” Hours later, Marino contacted the blogger and said she wanted to withdraw her consent to be quoted, saying that she did not want to be quoted on “a blog filled with the most contemptible groups of racists, bigots, madmen, and hatemongers … groups that I despise.” Following widely accepted journalistic practice that once an on-the-record interview is conducted, permission cannot be withdrawn, Hatewatch decided to publish quotes from the interview.
I love animals. Dogs, snakes, birds, love them. Theyre the beautiful end result of almost 4 billion years of evolution. I sobbed over the death of a dog who attacked me. I spent 5 hours in below freezing temperatures to coax a stray dog into my apartment. *I* love animals.
But Camille Marino and her clan? Theyre not animal lovers, ‘human animal’ or ‘non-human animal’ or otherwise. Theyre just freaks. Sick fucking freaks.
Get more background on this, and what this interview means at ‘Speaking of Research‘:
Hopefully, and given the available evidence, SPLC will take the logical step of declaring animal rights extremist groups like NIO hate groups. This is, after all, what these groups are and, hopefully, they will formally be recognized as such in the SPLC hate map where they belong.
