ALF Terrorist John Goodwin: HSUS Dogfight Czar

Here's John Goodwin, the Humane Society of the United States' "nationally recognized expert" on animal fighting.

HSUS says Goodwin is an expert.

HSUS says Goodwin has been "active in the field of animal protection since 1989".

HSUS is lying about John Goodwin

First of all, that's a freaking Animal Liberation Front shirt Goodwin is wearing.

ALF was characterized by J. F. Jarboe, the FBI's Domestic Terrorism Section Chief during Congression testimony on eco-terrorism in 2002 as. . .

". . .one of the most active extremist elements in the United States."

Goodwin himself stated "my goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture."

From dairy farms to Thanksgiving turkeys. . .its all got to go according to John Goodwin.

Active in the field of animal protection? The guy's on the fringes of the already extreme animal rights movement, and a convicted criminal.
During the 90's--when HSUS claims he was "protecting animals" he was actually one of the most infamous domestic terrorists in the country.

Goodwin's lengthy police record

Activist Cash details Goodwin's long history of arrests and convictions:

He was arrested and convicted for being the ringleader of a crew that vandalized fur retailers in multiple states during the 1990s. The animal-rights watchdog newspaper Animal People News profiled Goodwin in 2000, noting that he “gleefully announced a string of Animal Liberation Front mink releases and arsons against furriers and fur farms” while a “spokesman” for the underground terrorist group.

Goodwin also handled the media after a Petaluma, California, slaughterhouse arson in February 1997. But he really shocked the public with his comments on the March 1997 arson at a farmer’s feed co-op in Utah. Referring to a fire that caused almost $1 million in damage and could easily have killed a family sleeping on the premises, Goodwin told the Deseret News, “We’re ecstatic."

HSUS tried to clean up his history--virtually re-inventing Goodwin's background--but the fact is that HSUS's dogfighting czar is a convicted terrorist. Someone with strong ties to the most violent and irresponsible elements in the animal extremist movement.

Gee. Thanks, HSUS.
