Skip to comments.We are ready to die to stop Japanese whaling: Sea Shepherd
Posted on 10/05/2011 10:53:11 PM PDT by Rabin
The Sea Shepherd has become increasingly successful in recent years in disrupting the Japanese whaling, last summer forcing Japan's whaling fleet to head home early, and led Japanese whalers to obtain only 17 percent of their whaling quota.
Japanese government on Tuesday announced the research whaling program will go ahead later in December, and there are reports that an extra 27 million U.S. dollars worth of security will be added to the whaling fleet.

Research whaling program... Not
I really wish the Japanese would sink their ship and machine gun the survivors in the water.
Personally, I don’t like the idea of hunting whales. But I don’t like Leftists and their fascism. I’m torn really.
That would be most efficient.
Obvious solution: Sink all of them.
...said the guy who liked fugu.
Can we try it on you first?
This is a website for conservatives.
It is not a site for crazy evil people who advocate violence against those who have not attacked us or broken our laws.
Go be a hippie retard elsewhere.
Is “sleek” a euphemism for diminutive?
Please, Sea Shepherds, try to stop the Bering Sea Crab fishing this fall and winter...:)
And when asked about it later, the Japanese spokesman can shrug his shoulder's and say...Old habits die hard.
I hope the Japanese run these hippie scum down.
“Is sleek a euphemism for diminutive?”
Well, he is Japanese.
Perhaps they should get on with it, then.
Kind of like the suicide squads in “Life of Brian”.
Other than the argument “they are whales” what is wrong with eating whale meat?
Look! The Japanese are killing whales for food. Oh no! We need to get organize, work 15 hour days and do some massive fundraising to save the earth. Mr. Soros, please send us money!
Guess we really don’t have time or funding to re-elect Obama or focus on destroying capitalism in the US. Just too busy saving those cute whales. Darn.
So you support terrorists then?
It hurts the liberal grass chewing ecomoonbats feelings LOL. Seriously whaling is not new and persons need to make a living. The protesters ought to try real work sometime at real private sector jobs.
*Whale Wars Ping*
I have never got anyone to explain why I should give a rip about the Japanese hunting whales. We hunt all kinds of animals here in the US and the sea and I don’t see the Japanese messing with us.
T90, “Crab fishing this fall and winter”
Research fishing and crabbing or all of it?
Those anti-whalers look stupid. Consider that get donation$ and outfit their ships. You probably have to pay them to be a crew member instead of you being paid by them. They really look stupid to me. Save the whale my axx. It’s another rip off con game. As long as they can get little old pink haired ladies to write them a check for ten grand or more they’ll keep milking it.
Now that would entertaining TV!
I instinctively side with anyone who opposes the Left. But in this case, it’s by default; the Japanese whaling fleet is not staffed by Ssrah Palin supply-side conservatives but by whalers pursuing a way of life that dates back centuries and was once a huge part of American seafaring.
Face it, we humans tend not to prey upon our fellow carnivores higher up in the food chain. Plant life is what our dinner eats, and the diet of baleen whales is at least analagous; planton & krill. Cows are not an endangered species and neither is the species of whale that the Japanese hunt and eat. I have read that a taste for whale meat is not universal unlike that for steak or BBQ, but every nation to its own taste.
By way of saying that taking sides is easy as aforementioned; Captain Cocoapuffs and his smelly band of sea hippies are obnoxious lefties and I wish defeat upon them as much as I do liberals and Wall Street protesters.
Not harm, just defeat. And just where do these haters of capitalism and the meat-based diet get their filthy capitalist dollars, anyway? Nothing they do would inconvenience George Soros, just saying.
I like those Sea Shepherds. They do one thing, they do the thing they say they do, and they do it well.
Whale pops are tragically low... I’m no greenie weenie but after hundreds of years of unlimited whale harvesting and almost total species devastation, I like the fact there are some cowboys out there who actually give a damn about these awesome and awesomely intelligent, communicative, and mysterious creatures.
And yes, I’ve given ‘em money.
This is going to be an interesting season...
We ping folks to stories related to Sea Shepherd and then Pan_Yan hosts "hippies failing badly" when the TV show is on in June. We even have a Whale Wars drinking game!!!
Do you prefer to buy your meat at the supermarket where no animals are hurt.
What does whale taste like? Can it be grilled like a steak?
The species of whale they take are not endangered. The only thing tragic is your acceptance of their of their leftists claptrap.
PING!!! The Japanese are bringing in $27 million in security. Atleast this season won’t be as boring as Season 4.
The reason the hippies were successful this year was because they had 3 ships including a very fast one that could out run the fleet and they prop fouled a security ship.
Once a security ship is tailing the hippies, they just need to relay the coordinates the the Nisshan Maru and Harpoon ships.
And legally they can't send in the Japanese Navy as everyone agrees that these waters are Australian waters.
And they are also the chosen charity of eBay. I don't think they are desperate for money. And I am going to put this out on the line that there will be two more Sea Shepherd vessels, an ice breaker that is faster than the Barker and another harpoon interceptor.
They are pirates pure and simple and need to be blown out of the water. Anyone who supports them should be given a ticket before the torpedoes are fired.
What I find is the surprising incompetency of the Whale Wars crews. The ocean is a dangerous place for fools. One day someone is going to die from their stupity.
IMO, there is no need for hunting whales in this day and age. They are sentient mammals, not just “big fish” as some seem to think they are.
When you are in International Waters interfering with other vessels you are a pirate.
Japan should send out a Destroyer with their whaling fleet to protect the fleet.
Or the Whalers should put a harpoon in the Bridge of the attacking vessel.
Thank you for pointing that out. They are terrorist violating international laws. That program should be taken off tv. Democrat pirates is all they are and the near support they sometimes get here on FR is distressing.
I don't like "hippies" either but I don't see any conservative volunteers.. We should support the defense of scarce and intelligent creatures.
So its based on need? Guess that would rule out porterhouse steaks and singlemalt scotch.
You support a slippery slope but you probably don’t see it. Some people feel the same way about squirrels and inhibit human freedoms via their beliefs.
What the enviroextremists are doing is illegal and incredibly dangerous to all parties. If they wanted to stop whaling then the approach would be to use the donated millions to hire a Japanese psychologist and a Japanese marketing firm. In 20 years eating whale meet would be SO uncool that no Japanese would do it. No market, no whaling.
But this isnt about the whales. Its about forcing somebody else to convert and conform to the enviroextremists views. Its about control and fighting a just war; and protesting. Its about raising money and providing a source of smug moral superiority. The Sea Shepards captain, crew, enablers and apologists are conducting their form of warfare for the enjoyment of the agony (mostly imagined) that it costs others.
The Japanese should employ a faster more stoutly built ship to play bumpies with the Sea Shepard and herd the Sea Shepard away from Japanese ships.
Having said that, I believe whales are as intelligent as we are and I dont think humans have any right to kill them. But these are not issues to be negotiated or fought over. If somebody really objects, use the millions collected to quietly change Japanese culture behind the scenes.
You really think whales are as intelligent as humans? Wow! The democrats have succeeded beyond their wildest indoctrination dreams!
I would pay to see that.
If they were that intelligent, they would talk amongst themselves and decide to swim south out of the whale hunting zones till the season was over.....
