McCartneys don't want the facts

I just heard Paul McCartney and Heather Mills (I ain't calling them Sir and Lady) on CBC Radio comparing the seal hunt to apartheid and slavery. Jesus Christ. That is so inane that I don't even know how to repsond. Comparing killing seals to degreding, torturing, and killing groups of human beings. I just can't get my head around it. Oh, and Heather chimed in that it was also like when they sent children down chimneys in Victorian England. I had hoped that they would listen to reason and had come here to find out the facts. I now have no hope that is true and pray they don't beat down Danny Williams on CNN tonight with such hyperbole and garbage sensationalism. I have faith that Danny can hold his own but I'm just waiting for the McCartneys to drag up 9/11 or "the war on terror" in order to suck the Americans in. Seems to work for George Bush everytime he has something stupid he is arguing for.

I guess the comparasson is being made with the mentality that human and animal are equal. Human and animal are mearly words to distinguish the beings.

I'm very interested to see how all this turns out tonight. I'm still blown away that Danny boy is going to be talking with Larry King. Crazy.

I'm concerned.

VOCM says that Danny is going to be taped.

While there is no one better to forward our interests, how do you debate someone when they are live, and you are taped?

Ack, I just watched as much of LKL as I could stomach. I had to stop watching because I was afraid of waking the kids with my shouts of 'oh for god's sake' and 'just shut up!'

Danny did good work though. Whenever he was allowed to get a word in, that is.

Yes, Heather was an idiot. Paul was only marginally better (until the laughable "We are in Newfoundland" comment). But Danny Williams did NOT do a good job! He's the one that brought up Sept. 11th, for frig sakes. The whole broadcast was shameful and the sealers are lucky that Heather Mills is almost certifiably stupid, because Danny did not help their cause. ANY. He had so many chances to cut them down, and question their polls, and economic "facts" but instead wasted his airtime talking about terrorism and kissing American ass.

John, I agree with you about a lot but not this. When you sit there on Larry King with Heather bawling at you and no moderation from Larry King, trying to get your point across between continuous and loud interruptions, and do a better job, I'll agree with you. Until then, I think Danny wasn't perfect but he did alright.

Chris, I hear ya. I was the same way.

Where are the fish lovers? The seals eat the fish and eat more then their share of fish but you don't see anyone out there crying over a poor cod fish.

We should not have even allowed Paul and Heather to step foot on Newfie soil. We should have protested Paul and his stupid songs we have to listen too- How overpaid he is and how untalented he is. They come here with money and celebrity and expect us to fall all over ourselves because of who he is. It's a disgrace. PETA are a bunch of wachjobs. It's a wonder, Pamela Anderson wasn't here as well posing nude with the seals in support of PETA..

I'm against violence and I think the seal harvest is disgusting but it's all we have. If Paul is worth millions, why don't he come here, open up a business or better yet plunge some of his hard earned (cough) money into our economy and help us out a little. Don't just come to our town, yell at us, degrade us and expect us to throw panties and our bras at you because of who you are. It didn't matter what Danny said or did. He would not have won because celebrity always wins.
