No Apologies. Not Now. Not Ever

The Extinction Chronicles

.From Captain Paul Watson’s FB Page:

My post from a couple of days ago on this page deploring the killing of a 200 year old Bowhead whale by some 16 year old who was joyfully boasting of his snuffing the life from such a majestic creature seems to have ruffled some feathers.

Some are calling me racist. Others are demanding an apology.

There will be no apology. Not now, not ever.

And there is nothing racist about it. I condemn all whaling by anyone, anywhere for any reason. I don’t care for nor accept any justifications of any kind.

It’s our culture! It’s a tradition! Bullshit. In my eyes it is murder and I make no exceptions.

Whales are self aware, socially complex, highly intelligent, sentient beings and they are my clients. They come first in my eyes. I have no sympathy for their killers nor would I ever apologize…

  1. Yes sir…absolutely, no apologies! I am getting very weary of the endless excuses for bad behavior and cruelty, e.g. “its my culture”, religion, or whatever-just fill in the blank. Moral relativism is another term for not having the courage to uphold basic rights for all living beings.
