Don’t Save the Whales Still Going Strong

| filed under: , , ,

I wrote a blog post entitled Don’t Save the Whales over six years ago in April, 2005, and it is still going strong, for obvious reasons.

Don’t Save the Whales Still Going Strong

Don't Save the Whales

Lots of people didn’t read the article Don’t Save the Whales very carefully but the premise was “There is no cause so noble that you should sacrifice your children to its altar” and “After 15-years in DC, I have noticed that those noble activists who are saving the world have yet to save themselves, their marriages, their families, and their children.”

That doesn’t matter because the beautiful unintended consequence has been hundreds of comments, each of which is funnier than the next.  Yet another one arrived — a real gem — that I would like to excerpt:

Chris, I’ve read your article and I think people make sacrifices in order to achieve something noble. Now, since you put up the family up bringing issue, I have to tell you this, when men go to war they always leave their loved ones behind. Many kids don’t even see their dads all their lives but that does not mean we should stop sending men to war. They go to war for a purpose and once it has been achieved they return. If now their purpose is to save the whales, then they make their sacrifices and they go to war. This time they try to end the cruelty humans are showing towards creatures.

Phillip, what is the natural way crap you’re on, if tomorrow someones shows up and kills your family in front of you, would you say it was nature that took its course. Really don’t fill us up with your crap.

I think this whole article is gay, maybe Chris you should start spending more time with your own family, help your kids grow with good values and stop spreading crap like this and pick on people who don’t have good english. Really.

If that gem isn’t enough for you, I will share some more below, after the jump:

Anna:

You’re like Lady Gaga-trying to stir controversy in order to get attention.
you might as well kill a whale and wear it……….that was a joke…don’t really do it.

Crystal:

WHAT THE FUCK IS WORNG WITH YOU PEOPLE WHALES ARE AS IMPORTANT AS WE ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE HARPOONED AND STILL BE ALIVE IN MAJOR PAIN JUST TO BE SLAUGHTERD WITHOUT ANY PAIN KILLERS? I HATE POACHERS THEY ARE ILLEAGLE AND SHOULD BE SENT TO DEATH ROW FOR KILLING ANY ANIMAL. KILLING AN ANIMAL IS LIKE TAKING YOUR BEST FRIENDS LIFE. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE UR BEST FRIEND TO DIE? WHALES HAVE FAMILIES. POACHERS I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO THINK ABOUT THIS IF YOU CAM HOME TO FIND OUT ONE OF YOUR FAMILY MEMEBERS HAD BENN KILLED JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE WANTED THEIR TEETH OR HAIR HOW WOULD U FEEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE ALL POACHERS ARE DAMNED TO HELL!

Elizabeth:

YOU ARE SO RETARDED!! hope you choke on a piece of beef jerky!!

Zayna:

your stupid!!!
dont say dont save the whales because you need to save yourself first. i love whales and im trying t save whales and im only 17 i have loving parents who are also trying to save whales and were not disfunctional or falling apart or any thing you said were just fine and to generalize that all people who try and save our planet are neglecting their families is BULL. your just pissed that you cant save the world and you probably cant fix your own family.

Save the Whales:

i’m not sure of what your point is?! whats wrong with trying to save the whales, or any animal for that matter? why are you saying that only whales shouldn’t be saved? why not all other endangered species? i think you are wrong as i know many do, but i do not see your selfish view as to be right, yes you can look after your family or whatever your trying to say, but why not doing things for other people or animals other than yourself? please enlighten me with your selfish attitude to life

WALE LOVER:

FUCKING WALE KILLER: YOUF UCKING SHOULD DIE TOO BECAUSE WE HATE PEOPLE LIKE YOU BITTER OLDMAND YOU HAVE NO FRENS AND YOU SHOULD DIE NOTHE WALES! HOW WOULD YOU LIEKTO BE SUFFOCATED AND KILT WITH NETS LIKE DOLPHONS FOR NO REASONS SO JAPANESE CAN EAT THEMß

Jackie:

umm ur sick =[ how could u not save the whales? they can fend for themselves if stupid rue people didnt kill themand screw up their natural environments, so someone has to clean up the worlds mess.

Catie:

You are the stupiest person I have ever heard speak in my life. If you think that allowing people to kill innocent animals is okay, then I suggest that you go seek mental help. Your theory of not saving whales is stupid, just like you. You missed me off so much that words cannot describe. You better watch your back, because you are going to get everything you deserve, which will not be good. You are a bad person and only bad things will come to you. It is one thing to say that you don’t like whales. But to say that they should not be saved is wrong!! You need to reconsider the things you post. You are spreading a bad message that nobody should hear. You talk about young children, but you are the one setting a bad example for them. If you are looking somebody to argue with on the subject, that person is not me, because I will win. So go ahead and step at me bacause I am always ready to defend the whales!!

Marie:

why not save the whales? why let people hurt them when they just want to be left alone. you are horrible

Bob:

why would you want to not save the whales? i think we should save them!coz after all you wouldnt like something like that happening to you… so your wrong and its a mean thing to say…

Kirsty:

I HATE YOU! YOU ARE HORRIBLE AND NEED TO SHUT UP! LISTEN TO EVERYONE! YOU ARE THE ONE THAT IS WRONG YOU IDIOT!

Baby Cakes:

Zayna:

your stupid!!! dont say dont save the whales because you need to save yourself first. i love whales and im trying t save whales and im only 17 i have loving parents who are also trying to save whales and were not disfunctional or falling apart or any thing you said were just fine and to generalize that all people who try and save our planet are neglecting their families is BULL. your just pissed that you cant save the world and you probably cant fix your own family.

Tyler:

hey i love whales so shut up and u should die for sayin don’t save the whales so i’ll say it again and forever SAVE THE WHALES

Erin Bentley:

i think that the perosn saying dont save the whales is an idot. if we dont try to save them or protect them, then later when this moron wants us to they might be almost gone and by then the evniroment will have gone all out of wack. everything has a purpose in life, and if we dont try now then we cant start later

Anymous:

you are the meanest person in the world! are you a whaler or something?

Rebecca:

Tyler Boller Whale:

U are so selfish yes whales are important at the moment cause Japan is kkilling the for supposably reacher but how do u reacher a dead whale or any other animal in their natural habitat i agree with the other viewers on this web cause u are a heartless besterd and diserv to die .Other indanger animals need help too yes and we should help them but right now the whales need more help we are starting a club to save the whale we are collecting 5000 pennies to see how many whales will die for japan cause they said that is how many they are going to kill and the money we make is going to LOta a whale in Florida with the worlds smallest tank so they can make her a bigger tank.So u need to shut up and i hope ur family lives and u die y faggot. SAVE THE WORLD AND ITS LIVING CREATURE cuase we need living creatures to serive so we can live on cause they help our plants when they die and when they use the bathroom and we need them to eat vbut only certain ones .SAVE A COW EAT MORE CHICKEN> and u need to help us save the whales and i bet u are a bitter old man all alone trying to get attion because u are lonly and missible but that doesn’t mean that u should try to stop us cause we the children of the world are ur future one day we may find away to save the world

Jenny:
