One expects to find homework and text books in a child’s book bag or backpack. But shoved in with the essay questions and times tables tests, parents must keep an eye out for anti-hunting propaganda.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the nation’s largest anti-hunting group, distributes KIND News to at least 35,000 classrooms each month. The November edition encourages readers, which total more than a million children in grades K-6, to become activists and promote federal legislation that will ban polar bear hunting.
“Through this classroom publication and other resources, animal rightists are trying to convince our children to take up the sword for the anti-hunting movement,” said Bud Pidgeon, USSA president. “It’s entry-level activism. The HSUS directs children to talk about animal rights issues being voted on locally and nationally, contact lawmakers to affect change, and ‘live peacefully’ with and not ‘disturb’ wildlife.”
The HSUS has cleverly disguised its anti-hunting agenda and slipped it into classrooms. The little newspapers appear benign, but the content is far from it.
“Teachers, parents and adults must keep track of the animal rights propaganda that is making its way into our schools as ‘humane education,’” said Pidgeon. “If your child brings home a newsletter or worksheet provided by an anti-hunting group, contact your child’s teacher and principal.”
