See You In Davy Jones’ Locker, You Worthless Sea-Hippies!

Let me be the first to applaud the people responsible for sinking a boat full of sea-hippies who were harassing Japanese whaling vessels:

The high-tech stealth boat Ady Gil was cut in half and sunk by a Japanese security vessel in Antarctic waters today, dramatically upping the stakes in the annual struggle between whalers and protesters.

Sea Shepherd group leader Paul Watson told Fairfax Media the $1.5 million Ady Gil was sinking, but its six-man crew had been rescued and was uninjured.

…The ICR said the Ady Gil came “within collision distance” directly in front of the Nisshin Maru bow and repeatedly deployed a rope from its stern “to entangle the Japanese vessel’s rudder and propeller”.

The statement accused the activists of shining a laser device at the Nisshin Maru crew and launching acid-filled projectiles, one of which landed on the vessel’s deck.

Let me tell you something: If you move your boat “within collision distance” of another boat, try to hose up: its propeller, shine lasers at the crew, and launch “acid-filled projectiles” at them, you deserve just about anything you get. Who do these animal rights wackos think they are and why in the world should they be given a free pass for engaging in these stupid and dangerous stunts?

If they have a problem with Japan’s laws, by all means, try to get those laws changed. But, they expressly do not have a right to threaten or harass Japanese whaling vessels at sea and if they do so, these whaling vessels have every right to defend themselves. If that means the wackos lost a ship, well, they should consider themselves lucky that the crew didn’t go to the bottom with it. Next time, if they’re not so lucky, they have no one to blame but themselves.
