Tell Congress to Oppose Cuts to Wildlife Protections

    1. Sponsored by

      Defenders of Wildlife

The House of Representatives has left town for its summer recess, but not before unveiling a barrage of new anti-wildlife provisions in the Interior spending bill.

Just two weeks ago, tens of thousands of wildlife supporters joined together and successfully defeated the Extinction Rider on the Interior Department’s appropriations bill that would have threatened walruses, wolverines and other wildlife with extinction. We won that battle -- but the fight's not over.

These new provisions threaten wild Mexican gray wolves and endangered Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles with extinction and pose a significant threat of increased injury and death for gentle manatees.

Speak out for imperiled animals. Write your representative now and urge him or her to oppose the interior spending bill.

      The so called humans who slaughter wolves are performing a Holocaust, they are no better then the one responsible for the last Holocaust! Disgusting, hiddeous, vicious, sadistic, barbaric, bloodthirsty murderers!

      If we are not careful and preserve the biodiversity that exists, we will not be leaving any legacy for our future generations.  Many of the animals we know now, will be driven to the brink of extinction, in our lifetime!  So, please do not pass any legislation that could endanger the wildlife and destroy the biodiversity that exists.

      Our wildlife is revered sacred,

      created by the Great Spirit for ALL

      to behold with awe and wonder,

      and not with guns, arrows, clubs,

      harpoons, nor poison gas!!!!

      No Mortal Man Is Above The Creator!!!

      If our wildlife is rendered extinct,

      so will all of mankind, and the consequences will come directly from

      the mighty hand of Great Spirit!!!

      If you ignore this prophetic warning

      or dismiss it as a load of drivel and nonsense, you will, in time, have to answer to the Almighty, and YOU will pay the price for your own ignorance, selfishness, arrogance, and greed, as well as an act of blasphemy by turning your backs against Him and taking His glorious name in vain, to become servants to the Devil!!!

      I'm giving you a challenge...

      If you love Jesus, you will do what it takes to protect all of our Creator's pets and STOP wasting our taxpayer dollars on frivolous anti-wildlife rider attachments, and invest the resources on where it should be invested into, such as creating jobs and helping the middle class and poor, not the greedy and spoiled special interests and corporate polluters.

      I don't want rosy promises that you'll do this and do that, 'cause they're nothing more than just words...

      No more lip-service.

      Talk Is Cheap..

      Action Speaks Louder Than Words.....

      If you love Jesus, you will oppose any rider legislation that harms our sacred wildlife.

      If you love Jesus, you will put our wolves and other wild creatures back on the Endangered Species list and ban sport hunting FOREVER!!!
