Maybe someone from the Left can explain why the “Animal Rights” movement is not guilty of producing this woman who is part of them, yet we are guilty of producing Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ shooter.
A vicious domestic terrorist who fancies herself as a protector of animals has been arrested after trying to hire a hit man to kill a random person she saw wearing fur. The would-be contract murderer is a 27 year old woman from Cleveland named Meredith Lowell who solicited a murderer for hire using Facebook.
Using a fake name and a fake Facebook page, Lowell offered up to $850 to anyone who would shoot or slit the throat of a fur wearer without warning and completely at random.
In this “animal liberator” plan, a hired assassin, who would kill a fur wearer in Northeast Ohio, would strike the same kind of blow for freedom our fighting men struck when they liberated the poor staving human inmates of Hitler’s concentration camps during World War II.
When Lowell posted her solicitation on Facebook, the FBI went into action. She initially wrote, “I would like to create an online community on facebook whi8ch [sic] would allow me to find someone who is willing to kill someone wearing fur toward the end of October 2011 or early November 2011 or possibly in January 2012 or February 2012 at the latest.”
In her negotiations with the “hit man” (actually an FBI employee), Lowell specified that she wanted to be there when the murder took place so she could distribute papers to onlookers afterward. She also said she wanted to get out of the home she shares with her parents and brothers because they eat meat and eggs as well as wear fur leather and wool.
A frugal terrorist
During her conversations with her “hit man,” Lowell tried to bargain the price down, saying she could only afford $730.00. However, when the price was somewhat settled she advised her killer he should “…bring a gun that has a silencer on it and that can be easily concealed in your pants pocket or coat.” She also told him to “not wear anything that even remotely looks like fur. If you do not want to risk the possibility if getting caught with a gun before the job, bring a sharp knife that is at least 4 inches long.”
The most chilling instruction from Lowell was, “I am paying you to kill one person wearing fur who is 12 or older (but hopefully at least 14 years however 12 years old or older is fine.)”
Why is this case different from the Giffords/Jared Loughner case? Why are “Animal Rights” activists not guilty of creating Lowell, a woman who is deeply connected to them, but we on the Right are guilty of creating Jared Lee Loughner a skunk who has no connection to us?
She went on to specify that she wanted the person “to be dead in less than 2 minutes (under 2 minutes or 1 minute or less would be better.)”
In another message she told the agent “I am paying you to kill one person wearing fur who is 12 or older (but hopefully at least 14 years however 12 years old or older is fine.)”
She went on to write that “I plan on staying after the hit for reasons of benefit to the movement. And I think being caught would actually benefit me personally.”
