PETA Is Funding The Earth Liberation Front

Earth Liberation Front Bankrolled by PETA
I’ve never been a fan of PETA (see here, here, here and here) and their support for ELF, a group of domestic terrorists, won’t improve my opinion of them.

The Earth Liberation Front is already considered the foremost domestic terrorist group (see here also) and a quick glance at their website will show why.

If PETA’s support is verified and holds up in court, they should lose their tax-exempt status, at a minimum. If their support can be shown to contribute to acts of terror, they should be prosecuted.

As the frightening images of a massive August 2nd arson are seared into the minds of San Diego residents, many are left to wonder just who the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) is and who pays its bills. As law enforcement begins to look for answers, members of the public should know that the shadowy ELF enjoys financial backing from at least one tax-exempt, above-ground group — the activists at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

A recent federal income tax return filed by PETA shows a $1,500 cash payment to the “North American Earth Liberation Front.” And Rodney Coronado, a convicted arsonist who previously received $70,400 from PETA, was in San Diego on the day of the University City arson.

Coronado spent 57 months in federal prison for firebombing a Michigan State University research lab. When ABC News’s John Stossel confronted PETA President Ingrid Newkirk earlier this year about her organization’s financial support of Coronado, she said that he is “a fine young man.”

“Federal law enforcement has already shut down several American nonprofits because of their financial ties with overseas terrorists,” said David Martosko, Director of Research at the Center for Consumer Freedom. “Terrorism is terrorism, whether it’s international or domestic. PETA is funneling money to terrorists, and they shouldn’t be treated any differently.”
