Anti-Pit-Bull Group Eatin' Wings, Spreadin' the Stupid in Rosenberg Saturday
A friend in the animal rescue community tipped us off to an anti-pitbull group organizing an event for dog-bite victims at Buffalo Wild Wings in Rosenberg Saturday, and we had to roll our eyes. For one thing, Hair Balls felt bad we weren't invited -- after all, we own a pitbull mix (our second, actually), so there's a good chance our faces will be eaten off soon, so why should we be denied some mother-effin' hot wings?
But we digress. We feel terrible for the little boy who was reportedly attacked by a dog. But we also wonder how much of this is supposed to benefit the victims, and how much is supposed to further DogsBite.org's misguided efforts in advancing breed-specific legislation.
And we also wondered how one goes about getting Buffalo Wild Wings to sponsor an event. We spoke to a manager, who explained the process. He said that you "basically ask." Hm. He said there's also an application to fill out, listing your organization's 501(c)(3) or tax ID number, "That way we know who to cut the check to."
But, based on what he told us, there's not a whole lot of checking out the nature of the organization and whether it traffics in bullshit. Which is why this would be the perfect venue for the Texas-based Crusader Knights of the Ku Klux Klan to hold a fundraiser. Really, it's hard for these guys to get a break anywhere, what with their unconventional dress code and tendency towards lynching, but if an organization as idiotic as DogsBite.org can help raise money for an event and thereby advance its loony agenda, then why not the Klan?
For example, the Crusader Knights of the Ku Klux Klan dispense valuable, highly accurate statistics on the dangers of "race-mixing," just like DogsBite.org spreads highly reliable information about face-eating pitbulls. Did you know that "blacks have brains which exhibit primitive features such as small size, light weight, [and] fewer convolutions (wrinkles linked to intelligence)"? Well, you do now, thanks to the Crusader Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. And their information is every bit as reliable as DogsBite.org's!
So if you know any current members of the Crusader Knights or are perhaps interested in becoming a member yourself so you can better understand the battle against your "white rights," then we suggest calling Buffalo Wild Wings in Rosenberg for an application. They appear to have a progressive, open-door policy when it comes to sponsorship, and they ought to be recognized for it.
