Profile of A Senate Democrat Witness (That Is No Longer)

This is a follow-up to my earlier post today entitled Profile of A Senate Democrat Witness (that I inadvertently deleted) about the Senate Democrats' witness in the Alito hearings, Stephen R. Dujack.

I profiled Dujack who was described by them in their press release as an: “editor of an environmental magazine in Washington and a freelance writer.” Specifically, he is editor of the Environmental Forum, magazine of the DC-based Environmental Law Institute.

He happened to "freelance" this "commentary" in the April 21, 2003 edition of the L.A. Times.

I pointed out the most grotesque of the lines of this "commentary" that read as follows:

Like the victims of the Holocaust, animals are rounded up, trucked hundreds of miles to the kill floor and slaughtered. Comparisons to the Holocaust are not only appropriate but inescapable because, whether we wish to admit it or not, cows, chickens, pigs and turkeys are as capable of feeling loneliness, fear, pain, joy and affection as we are. To those who defend the modern-day holocaust on animals by saying that animals are slaughtered for food and give us sustenance, I ask: If the victims of the Holocaust had been eaten, would that have justified the abuse and murder? Did the fact that lampshades, soaps and other "useful" products were made from their bodies excuse the Holocaust? No. Pain is pain.

In the now-deleted post I expressed NO SURPRISE the Left would pick someone who sees no difference between human beings and chickens.

Earlier this evening, Dujack was dumped him from the Senate Democrats' witness list.

Perhaps they had an epiphany that it was not so good to have an expert witness in a Supreme Court confirmation hearing who compares animals killed for food to victims of the Holocaust.
