…hopefully, they won’t murder anyone. Speaking of Research has documented the anti-medical research threats by an organization known as Negotiation Is Over (italics mine; no direct link to terrorist organizations on this blog):

Students also need to understand that making the wrong choice will result in a lifetime of grief. Aspiring scientists envision curing cancer at the Mayo Clinic. We need to impart a new vision: car bombs, 24/7 security cameras, embarrassing home demonstrations, threats, injuries, and fear. And, of course, these students need to realize that any personal risk they are willing to assume will also be visited upon their parents, children, and nearest & dearest loved ones. The time to reconsider is now.

And here’s what they think will happen:

Debuting The Soft-Bellied Target and New Resistance Tactics: Bringing the War to the Student Body

When we attack professors, we can only expect limited gains. They are deeply entrenched in the holocaust, have vested financial interests, and enjoy a network of support and protection. Students, however, have no round-the-clock police protection, no access to the FBI, and no access to legislators. The weakest link in the chain is the student body. Vivisectors-in-training can be shut down with relative ease.

They also are the next generation and it is our responsibility to ensure that they are the last generation. Unless we intercede now, the students of today will be the mutilators of tomorrow. Conversely, there will be no animal torturers tomorrow if we effectively eliminate them today.

Here’s where they’re wrong. This will backfire the first time they hurt a student: most of their fellow students will be disgusted and appalled, not to mention afraid of what other groups of students, unrelated to biological research, might be targeted by different groups.

Tragically, NIO is too stupid to realize this until after someone is intentionally injured or murdered.

    The frothing at the mouth lunacy that pours from so many of these violent rage machines seems to indicate they have deep seated emotional issues which powers their hate. There are certainly more productive ways to fight against using animals for research if that is their true objective. Computer modeling and other technologies might alleve some need for animals down the line if such technologies were given more funding and priority. Threatening and even killing students and professors will just hurt heir cause more than help it.

    Nobody’s put these people, if we have names, on the federal No Fly List yet?

    Maybe the “forced pregnancy” terrorists should get with these “anti-vivisection” terrorists and go bowling…

    This is ridiculous. I am in the NIO and proud of it! Alene, the student was NOT threatened. The NIO is NOT bombing or threatening anybody!! We are saying that performing vivisection invites these things because vivisectors are terrorists. What is it called when it was discovered that when animals in a torture lab see a technician, their heartbeat is off the chart? YOU ARE THE TERRORISTS!!!! We are the animal lovers. Do not twist this around. Do I think vivisectors deserve their lab broken into where animals are rescued? Absoutely. You gotta love the ALF!!!The ALF credo says never kill animals or people.
    I saw a study the other day whereby rats were tested to see if they like ejaculating. OMG our country is going in the wrong direction if people are losing their homes and cannot pay the bills but our tax money is spent masturbating rats!!!
    Its not enough to torture animals, now you are sexually abusing them. You are all a bunch of sociopaths and perverts. Is any body part of an animal sacred to you people?
    Your research is doing nothing anyway. There is still cancer, heart disease etc. There are alternatives to vivisection seehttp://www.geari.org/alternatives-to-animal-testing.html
    The real solution to most diseases is a diet without preservatives and raw food. Our digestive system has not evolved past the caveman age. We have long intestines that are suitable to eating mostly vegetables. Eliminate the toxic chemicals, buy your shampoos etc from health food stores and you will eliminate 90 percent of the cancers.
    Im willing to bet 80 percent of you are sociopaths and need psychiatric help. It worries me when you have no compassion for suffering animals. God help you all. I hope you all burn in hell for abusing the earth and its inhabitants

    Janis, the NIO blog itself makes it perfectly clear that Alena was harassed and threatened, and that NIO supports terrorism, why do you even try to deny this? And you call us sociopaths.

    When did Florida become the US capital of crazy?

    You NIO people are scum, and for all I know that 95% of your threats are bluster and vitriol, I really do look forward to seeing your little gang of thugs behind bars where you belong.

    Janis, the more violent and destructive “animal rights” people have demonstrated over and again that they are not animal lovers; they hate people and use animals as a proxy for whatever they are really angry at.

    PETA killing dogs “rescued” from animal shelters; UK activists releasing minks into the countryside, where they ravaged the local wildlife before starving to death, etc. Your choice of targets: research labs instead of McDonald’s corporate offices or selected restaurants show that it is knowledge and civilization that y’all hate. Go throw some paint on a construction worker for his leather tool belt, or better yet a biker for his leather jacket. But no, you attack old ladies wearing fur coats or medical research facilities.

    “There is still cancer”. Yes, there is. When I was a kid, a diagnosis of leukemia was the kiss of death. Now, 90% of patients who are treated survive. The difference is largely due to animal testing.

    Animal testing is expensive and complicated, we would love to do research only with computer models and such, but we don’t yet know enough to do that.

    As for diet, we have been effective hunters for two million years. We are surpassed in our long distance running ability only by wolves and wildebeest, and perhaps one or two others. Until very recently, we ran our prey down, and stabbed them with sharp sticks, then took ate some and took the rest home to the family. You’re smart enough to use a computer because we could evolve larger brains supported by the extra calories this diet provided. Of course we also eat veggies and fruit and nuts. Evidence suggests that we have cooked much of our food for at least a million years.

    You want to help animals? Learn about global warming, then educate other people. The losses of many of our Western forests alone have painfully ended the lives of more animals than all the lab tests in the US this century. But you don’t really care about that, do you? You want to punish people for not being as righteous as you.
