Animal Liberation Front.

Facts: Members have claimed that they would just as soon save a dog rather than a human baby if they were more "emotionally" attached to it and that no ethical or moral principles would have any validity in the situation or its outcome.

Would rather see every single human being die form disease than so much as a single dog killed for biomedical research.

Claim that computer science alone can lead to human development of vaccination technologies, while no existing evidence supports this claim.

Claim that no testing on animals could ever yield useful results to humans, and in doing so ignore the past one hundred years of medicinal development.

Claim that humans are inherently "moral" animals and have an "ethical" duty to consider the "rights" of animals. Naive at best, they ignore that the concepts of "morality," "ethics," and "rights" are merely inventions of the human mind and do not exist beyond the man-made implications of actions of human beings that only other humans "perceive."

"Right" and "wrong" are psychological fabrications of the human brain and are in no way bound in the world of natural law. "Morality" only exists as far as there is a will of human beings to act upon it. The idea that humans "must" abide by a moral principle that ensures the "rights" of animals is as much a falsehood as the idea that whites are superior to blacks.

A "morality" that says that animal experimentation and consumption is "justifiable" is no more or less a creation of the human mind than any "morality" that says that such activities and "wrong." As sure as the concept of "language" itself, these are ideas that we create in our animal brains whose only "inherent" properties are that fact that they are absolutely meaningless outside of human perception.
Medical testing on animals has given us approximately 90% of current vaccinations used today.

Any of ALF's ideological subscribers that believe in animal "rights" should by their own definition never, ever seek out influenza or pneumonia vaccines or ever use diabetes medicines - which, curiously, the vice president of PETA does.

"Ethics" and "morality" only exist because the past ten thousand years of evolution have given humanity the ability to invent psychological concepts and apply them to the world around them. If the human physiology lead to a brain that was less "intelligent" than it currently is, then no such arguments of "right" or "wrong" would even exist.

Just so as "morality" and "ethics" and mere human inventions, so are the notions of "freedom," "prejudice," "bias," "racism," "sexism," and "equality."

Animals do not have inherent natural "rights" because nothing does - the idea of "rights" is a human psychological device that exists solely inside of the realm of human perception and action, nothing else.

Again, take a few thousand years of evolution away from the human anatomy, and none of these notions would ever have come to exist - and yes, we'd still be eating animals and wearing their furs.

The brown creature from the popular 80's sitcom of the same name. A certain Law & Order actor bears a striking resemblance to Alf.
You might be stuck in the 80's if you still have an Alf T-shirt.
Wow, Sam Waterson really looks like Alf!

Gum Disease. You can tell when a person has alfs, because their gums are in such diseased condition that when they smile, pus runs down their teeth.
Man 1 : dude, Sally looks like she never brushes her teeth.
Man 2 : You got that right, the girl has Alfs disease. Anyone who kisses her is gonna get a mouth full of pus.

If you're 93 years old, you should know who Alf is. Actually, you should know who Alf is if you at least lived in the 80's. Even the 90's.

For those that don't know about Alf, his real name is Gordon Shumway. He is given the nickname Alf, which is an acronym of Alien Life Form. He hails from the planet Melmac. He is covered with an orange fur, and he looks like the cross between a mammoth and an orangutan. His favorite food is cats. Now you should have an idea on who Alf is.
Danny: "I'm watching the first season of Alf on DVD."
"You're 93 years old and you don't know what Alf is? Piece of crap!"

Acronym for Animal Liberation Front. Animal Rights organization that values all living creatures equally. The ALF carries out direct action (illegal action) against animal abuse by rescuing animals in danger and causing financial loss to animal exploiters. It is a nonviolent campaign, activists taking all precautions not to harm any animal (human or otherwise).
Three members of ALF destroyed a vivesection lab and rescued the beagle pups.

An animal liberation group that most people hate. Some ignorant people havn't come to realise that breaking the law is the only way to freedom. Most of you say that they are "terrorists". They are nothing even close. If breaking the law for freedom no matter of species, race, or gender is wrong, then why is it that we fight wars? We are killing people aren't we? That is against the law last time I checked. I was ok for the black panther party (a group of blacks that used violence to gain freedom), but it's not okay for the ALF to use violence for the freedom of animals? What makes humans think they are superior to other species anyways? I mean if we are so "superior" than can you please explain to me why we fuck things up so bad? War, Animal Cruelty, Pollution, etc. I could go on for pages. If we have the largest brains (which I never hear the end of) then why are we the most ignorant. As for PETA. Give them a break. Sure, they make some mistakes. But who doesn't. Oh and btw I really don't give a shit if you rate this 'thumbs down'. It just proves how many of you are ignorant.
ALF: (free's animals)

Ignorant person: You guys are terrorists and aren't helping at all!

ALF: Tell that to the racoon I just freed.
