Liz Taylor Dies, Leaving Hundreds of Dead Animals & Blood Diamonds in Closet

Liz Taylor--nice to humans. To animals? Not so nice.

Those dead foxes would have liked a birthday

A Dog's Rant About Liz Taylor
Liz Taylor was a great actress, I'll give you that. And she raised a lot of money and awareness for victims of HIV AIDS. But, like the rest of us, she wasn't perfect.
I know you're supposed to revere celebrities, especially dead celebrities, but I'm a dog so I don't roll like that. A dog doesn't have to be politically correct. So I'm going to say it.
This old actress had an awful lot of dead animals in her closet. This movie star that everybody is crying about today owned more fur than the entire country of Tanzania.
I looked at hundreds of pictures of her today and she looked like she really liked sweltering and posing with dead animals. There are a few pictures of her with little furry live animals, and they all look more like the property of the prop department at Paramount than her friends.
There are some pictures of her with a store-bought Maltese dog, but never the same dog! It's like she would buy one for a "roll" down a red carpet and then, when the carpet ended, so did the dog. What happened to all those Maltese dogs? Didn't they ever get get old?
And, the few pictures of her with bunnies and puppies are way outnumbered by pictures of her draping dead animals over sequins, beads and gold lamé.
Right up to the end, like at her last birthday party, there she was, wheeled into the spotlight, draped in two dead, white foxes. Ouch. You know, foxes are trapped and they lie there dying for days sometimes before they are skinned alive. "Hey, Liz! Thanks for bringing us to the after party!"
I know a lot of people were dying to have their picture taken with Liz but way too many foxes, chinchillas, lynx, minks and coyotes literally died to get their picture taken with her.
And what about her obsession with diamonds? Liz Taylor had a lot of diamonds. Liz Taylor liked diamonds so much she named her perfume, Diamonds! Did she know how much blood has been shed for diamonds? Did she not know how many child laborers have had their hands chopped off for diamonds? That's why they call them blood diamonds!
"I'm so happy I have Diamonds and fingers!"
Her favorite diamond, the 33 karat Krupp, had belonged to a guy whowas accused of war crimes against Jews during the holocaust. Richard Burton gave her that big, shiny, holocaust memorial-diamond and she seemed to think it looked really splashy with her dead foxes. Set against the fur, it sparkled like a million paparazzi bulbs.

Almost everybody admires Liz for her fundraising for AIDS research and yeah, that's cool to want sick people to get better. But from my point of view, a dog, I'm sorta wondering what kind of hell those pregnant monkeys were living in when the vivisectors from NIH were injecting them with the AIDS virus. Did Liz ever ask what happened to all those animals who were tortured for the medical research she was promoting? I don't think so. I'm surprised she didn't ask for their fur. A monkey's coat wouldn't even require that much "Liz Tailoring." Hm....
And everybody is talking about how loyal she was. I'm a dog; I know loyal. It means sticking with one person through thick and thin. How could Liz be loyal to eight husbands? Sounds more like a home-wrecker to me. i guess she was loyal to Michael Jackson. She stood by him and not his victims. She never wavered in supporting him instead of the children he molested.
"I'm not a monster! I'm NOT," she yelled in Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf. She won an Academy Award for that, but I think she was type-cast.

Whoopi Goldberg Defends the Right to Buy Puppy Mill Dogs in Pet Stores, Angering Animal Rights Activists

I see dumb people.  There are an awful lot of dumb people gas-bagging on T.V. but Whoopi Goldberg gets the prize for being the most selfish, ignorant gasbag of the week.

I watched Whoopi Goldberg on the View gassing on and on about how “you don’t know what you’re getting when you get a “pookie-dingle-doodle” from the pound. She was saying that when you get a pound dog, you might be in for problems, like you might get stuck with a dog who has respiratory problems because of a genetic malformation. Or worse, you might get stuck with a mutt.

Whoopi, with all due respect, YOU are a mutt. And you, yourself, don’t come from some fancy breeder and you look like you might have less than perfect genes, like most of us. I would think that someone like you, who has a lot in common with us pound dogs, someone who has been through hard times and overcome those hard times, would be a little more understanding of what it means to come from the wrong side of the tracks.

Yeah, you DO have the right to buy a dog. But does that make it right? You know, people had the right to buy slaves in this country too but it wasn’t right. I know you don’t want to be told what to do.  

 You’re like one of those guys who’ll only date supermodels because they have all the right markings. They’re expensive, they’re beautiful and replaceable and when they get tired of one, they get a new one. In that market, you, Whoopi, wouldn’t stand a chance. You wouldn’t be seen for who you are. You wouldn’t be seen at all. You’d have to hope that some guy wanted a real companion—a friend who would stick by him and love him, would give you a chance instead of insisting on his right to date models.

I am a mutt  who was on death row at the pound and I would have died there if everybody thought like you.

Fact: Purebred dogs actually have more genetic malformations than hybrid dogs and that is something that the AKC doesn’t want you to know because it rakes in hundreds of millions of dollars masquerading as a non-profit animal welfare organization, when really, it is a FOR-profit corporation that makes the bulk of its blood money from registering litters from commercial breeding operations.

Whoopi, the concept of “purebred” doesn’t have any more substance than the concept of  “pure” German or “pure’” Ugandan. This idea of ‘pure” anything stinks of snobbery and racism. Do you think that if a “purebred” woman from Burkina Faso has a child with a  “purebred” man from Austria, that the child is somehow genetically defective? And what if that child, as a result of neglectful parenting or catastrophic circumstances, ends up in an orphanage, are you actually going to  use your platform on network television to talk someone out of adopting that child?  

If we stick to logic, the same goes for dogs. Racial “purity” is racial talk, it’s racism and it’s wrong, whether you’re talking about non-human animals or human animals. Besides, a lot of the dogs at the pound ARE purebred dogs who were bred in commercial breeding facilities, bought  in pet stores and then dumped. Do you think a dog is worthless because he is homeless? Do you think homeless people are worthless too?

What you said is pure garbage and garbage is something I know a lot about.  I was considered garbage. I am a mutt who was thrown away like trash, left to die at the pound. And because there are millions of dogs like me and millions of people like you who don’t care, we’ll continue to be thrown out like garbage.

Whoopi, let’s be honest; you don’t really like dogs. If you have to buy a dog to get what you want, you want a brand or an accessory—not a  best friend, a dog.
