FYI, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), a seemingly anti-intellectual, anti-animal, anti-peace organization, launched a new website: http://www.animalrightsextremism.org/ wherein they claim:
“Among those who oppose the humane [sic] use of animals in research is a fringe element that uses criminal [sic] activity to forward their cause. Animal rights extremists use vandalism, harassment campaigns, arson, and violent [sic] assault against researchers and associated people or entities as an end to achieve their means. These groups pose a real threat to medical progress and the scientists who dedicate their lives to improving the lives of others.”
“FASEB affirms that animal models are crucial [sic] for our understanding and treatment of human disease, and strongly believes that scientists deserve a safe research environment where they can continue to improve the health of all people. We helped pass the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act [aka the AETA] which provides additional law enforcement tools and protections for research entities targeted by animal rights extremists.” (source)
