July 17, 2005 -- IT IS NOT ENOUGH that the antis are try ing to take away our right to hunt and fish. Now we have learned that they are trying to brainwash young people on their computers and right in the classroom.
The National Association for Humane and Environmental Education is the youth education affiliate of the nation's leading anti-hunting organization, the Humane Society of the United States. It reaches more than a million school children nationwide through monthly issues of KIND News.

The publication instructs young people about wildlife issues with a coexistence slant: there are plans for this fall, for example, to discuss humane solutions to conflicts with beavers.

The organizations are slipping their anti-trapping and anti-hunting rhetoric into classrooms, said U.S. Sportsmens Alliance President Bud Pidgeon. The HSUS is in business to end America's outdoor heritage, but many teachers and others who influence our children don't realize this threat. They welcome the group's information into schools.

American Humane Association offers teachers its three-unit Be Kind to Animals "humane education" curriculum. It encourages children to create an action campaign for animals. Children are also asked to sign a Be Kind to Animals Pledge.

In one of its most recent newsletters, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals encouraged young students to visit its Web site to find out about animal-related legislative issues, and encouraged them to write their legislators regarding such issues.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has several age-specific Web sites, such as peta2.com and petakids.com, that cater to young peoples' interests. The group begins with animal welfare messages for youngsters, then moves to recruit children into animal rights activist organizations that are willing to vandalize, burglarize and terrorize in order to make their statement.

Children are a prime target — impressionable and accepting. Teachers, parents and adults must keep track of the propaganda that is making its way into our schools as so-called "humane education."

Among the newest products to be displayed:

* A Sea-B-Que marine grill and other gas grills with features you'd expect in the best backyard grills.
