Sea Shepherd Nonsense Resumes Again

» by in: Environment

Its another whaling season in the Antarctic waters which means that the media whores from Sea Shepherd are out in force again:

Japanese whalers shot water cannons at anti-whaling activists on Saturday, the conservationist group’s founder claimed, hours after the activists tracked down the hunting fleet in the remote and icy seas off Antarctica.

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is chasing the fleet in the hopes of interrupting Japan’s annual whale hunt, which kills up to 1,000 whales a year. The two sides have clashed violently in the past, including last year, when a Sea Shepherd boat was sunk after its bow was sheared off in a collision with a whaling ship.

On Saturday, Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson was talking to The Associated Press by telephone from his ship when he said the whalers suddenly began blasting one of his group’s inflatable boats with a water cannon.

“They just turned their cannons on our Zodiac,” Watson told The AP. “Right at this moment.”  [Stars & Stripes]

    "Captain" Paul fat-ass Watson is the best friend an anti-Eco Loon could ever ask for. He's such an idiot and so adroitly displays what him and his ilk are really all about. I absolutely love this guy.

    Given that these Sea Shepherd folks are nearly committing piracy on the high seas, I reckon many people who don't support whaling would not be sad to see the Sea Shepherd beached…

    I love it when I claim something that seems obvious… like Sea Shephard actually CAUSES more whales to be killed… and then Wikileaks confirms it for the exact reasons I stated.

    Paul Watson you terrorist, 2 wrongs don’t make a right…. So are you allowed to break the laws but the Japanese cant? Strange man. So how much fuel, energy and so called green house gases are produced by this hill billy sea Sheppard gang of fools? I wonder if he remembers WWII, I don’t want to go to war over a few fish. (I know they are mammals) If they were serious about saving wild life and not their own self promotion they would be taking on Australia's Indigenous people about their year round killing of beautiful sea turtles and dugongs…

    Looks like “Captain” Paul “Fatass” Watson might finally get a taste of justice.

    Leon LaPorte #1, Your comment hit the nail right on the head. This megalomaniac has only stiffened Japanese resistance & in the long run MORE whales are being killed.

    It’s the Costa Ricans who want him now.
