A hat tip goes out to Jason Calhoun for this story!
According to Free Republic, the U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance and some discussion boards across the country, Paul Harvey, the renouned radio talk show host who is most famous for his, “And now, the rest of the story” jingle, has shown that he is anti-hunting and eagerly sponsors and supports animal rights groups including the Humane Society of the United States and PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
On Nov. 13, syndicated broadcaster Paul Harveyâ€™s noon report announced how â€˜thankfulâ€™ Michigan doves are that voters rejected the stateâ€™s dove hunting initiative. He proudly rattled off a number of other ballot issue campaigns to which the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has contributed in recent years, including efforts to ban trapping and bear hunting. Harvey concluded by praising the organizationâ€™s new-found political prowess, saying HSUS â€œhas never had such clout on the Hill.â€
This evidently is not the first time that Harvey has used his radio address to commend the work of animal rights leftists.
This is not the first time Harvey has used his radio segment as a soapbox for his animal rights viewpoint. He has praised People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals leader Ingrid Newkirk â€œfor her dedication and commitment towards making planet earth a better place for animals.â€ He made these glowing comments about a woman who hopes hoof-and-mouth disease will come to America!
Now, I guess, you’ve heard the rest of the story!
