What if we told you that one of Delaware’s (and the nation’s) most prominent advocates for ‘law abiding citizens’ and ‘2nd Amendment Rights’ may well be both a lawbreaker and an inhumane killer? And what if I told you that this upstanding citizen is the former Executive Director of the National Rifle Association and current head of the Delaware Republican Party? Ladies and gentlemen, Delaware’s Mr. NRA #1, John Sigler:
Based on the animal cruelty documented in the video, a group called S.H.A.R.K (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness) is calling for Sigler’s immediate removal as DE GOP Chairman. While the video (and the fact that he is being targeted by an animal rights group) probably RAISES Sigler’s street cred among DE wingnuts – SHARK makes a strong point. Is crossing state lines to take part in illegal activity something that the DEGOP condones? For that matter, is slaughtering hundreds of emaciated birds just for the thrill of it something that the GOP–or anybody–condones
We’re not ‘pigeon enablers’ , but the type of “hunting” favored by the likes of John Sigler and Dick Cheney, in which pretend macho men use live animals as targets ,is pretty disgusting – and apparently illegal here in Delaware, especially when you leave the animals to die agonizingly over the course of hours and days. They’re not killed for food, rather for the hunting equivalent of dog-fighting. The video above shows Sigler engaging in this illegal and repulsive animal cruelty at the infamous Philadelphia Gun Club in Bensalem, PA.
If indeed Sigler is engaging in this activity, then Sigler is breaking the law in Pennsylvania. And he knows it.
Now, so too does the Delaware Rethuglican Party.
And so do the lily-livered legislators cowering in fear of the big bully NRA and refusing to do what’s right on common sense weapons legislation. Yo…they kill defenseless pigeons. You just gonna lie there like birds in a barrel?
If this video is accurate, then we call on both the Delaware Republican Party and the Delaware General Assembly to do the right thing. Cut your ties to this man. Use your respective consciences, if indeed any of you still have them. And, if you don’t, then watch that video again. Perhaps that will help you find both your conscience and your courage. Neither of which John Sigler possesses.
