Whales Are The New "noble Savages"

Postby Henry Dorset Case on Tue 20/Jun/06 9:37am

I believe that sickly white liberal guilt is completely responsible for the way a sector of society wrings their hands and rattles their dangly earrings and dreadlocks about whales.

Lets face it, whales arent that bright. If they were they would have invented the torpedo by now, and would be getting righteous on the asses of the Japs and Norwedgies who are harpooning them.

We sickly white middle class pseudo liberals are projecting a bunch of hopes and dreams and aspirations onto just another food animal that jebus put on this earth for us to exploit.

When we all get taken up to Heeeeeaven bodily in "the Rapture" it wont matter anyway. Mel Gibson is making a sequel to his new movie "the Rapture" called "Meh, its not all its cracked up to be".

the key question (back to whales) is: Are they gooood eatin'?

Answer yes. End of bleating.

Apparently the answer is "no" ... Whale meat tastes crappy and the Japanese government has had to launch an "education" programme to convince the population that whales are yummy:

That isn't quite true. A few coastal communities, like Wakayama, have been hunting whales for centuries, traditionally with hand-held harpoons.

But the rest of Japan only became familiar with eating whale during the 20th Century, as modern ships with harpoon-guns became available.

Whale meat was especially widespread in the difficult years after the Second World War, when it was seen as a cheap source of protein.

But as incomes rose, people switched to imported beef, or fish like tuna and salmon. With such an abundance of high-quality protein available these days, few Japanese see the point in eating whale, which doesn't taste that special.

Found it interesting that the Japs don't hunt the whales in their own territorial waters... or cut down their own forrests... or mine their own cement. They do make their own beer - but its crap.

So if there isnt really that much demand for whale meat, then where is the money coming from that is behind the pro whaleing camp?

The Japanese government. For some reason they see whaling as a source of national pride, and they're doing whatever they can to keep it happening.
