Animals are cute and cuddly. They can also be used to make lovely outerwear. And that’s why you deserve to die.
A self-proclaimed animal rights activist in Ohio has been charged with soliciting a hit man to kill a random person wearing fur, either by shooting the individual or slitting his or her throat.
Meredith Lowell, 27, of Cleveland Heights, is accused of creating a phony Facebook profile with the intention of contacting a would-be killer, according to the affidavit filed in an Ohio district court.
Lowell allegedly posted on the social media website the following request: “I would like to create an online community on facebook which would allow me to find someone who is willing to kill someone who is wearing fur toward the end of October 2011 or early November 2011 or possibly in January 2012 or February 2012 at the latest.”
An undercover FBI agent then contacted her, posing as a hit man after the agency subpoenaed Facebook to uncover details about her profile.
She then allegedly requested that the murder take place at a local library and that she be present so that she could then hand out documents about animal cruelty after the homicide.
Here’s the criminal mastermind:
PETA and other animal-rights groups will try to distance themselves from this wackjob. Just like Occupy keeps trying to distance itself from all the violent crazies the movement has attracted. Too bad. If lefties don’t want to be held accountable for the consequences of their rhetoric, they shouldn’t have blamed us for what happened to Gabby Giffords.
