AETA--The Mindset Of Frulein Feinstein

My response to Frulein Feinstein, followed by her email.
So, Senator, you find it morally acceptable to kill for profit? To kill because the victim tastes good?
Would it be "educational" to kill and carve open a human being? To, in the name of "research", to use
animals that walk on two legs to "test" for "pain threshholds"?
What church are you a member of? Apparently, a member of the Church Of Satan. Or the Church Of
The Almighty Dollar which includes, as its members, people who profit off no-bid contracts that
perpetrate the killing of innocents in Afghanistan.

Mr. Terry Clark
Dear Mr. Clark:
Thank you for writing me with your comments about the "Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act" (S. 3880).
I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the
opportunity to respond.
This bill would amend the federal criminal code provisions regarding animal enterprise terrorism to
toughen federal criminal penalties for threats of death or serious bodily injury against individuals, or
family members, who are involved with animal enterprises. It would also modify the definition of
"animal enterprise" to include all legitimate enterprises that use, or sell animals or animal products for
profit, educational, or research purposes, as well as individuals and companies affiliated with such
enterprises. The bill was introduced
after four separate hearings were held on the issue, after the Federal Bureau of Investigations testified
about a rise in terrorist activities by animal rights extremists, and after a recent publicized incident at

the University of
California, Los Angeles.
I am an original cosponsor of this legislation, which the Senate passed with an amendment by
unanimous consent. This amendment clarified that the
substantive offense created by the bill requires proof of intentional damage to real or personal property,
not simply a loss of profits, and also eliminated the misdemeanor of physical obstruction of animal
enterprises. All First Amendment-protected activities, such as picketing, lawful protests and boycotts,
and other peaceful demonstrations, are now exempted from the
bill's coverage. The final bill that the Senate-passed would clearly protect the actions of law-abiding
protesters, while distinguishing and appropriately
penalizing the criminal activities of extremists.
Again, thank you for contacting me. I value your opinion and hope you will continue to keep me
informed about matters of importance to you. If you should have any further questions or comments,
please feel free to contact my Washington, D.C. staff at (202) 224-3841.
Sincerely yours,
Dianne Feinstein
United States Senator
