Vigilantism is not encouraged by most of Western society. Which is odd considering how well movies about vigilantes (i.e. “The Dark Knight”) rake at the box office.
Speaking of Batman, the next story features a boat that looks like something the Caped Crusader might con:
Who is “The Sea Shepherd Society”? Nothing more than a group of concerned citizens that has waged a jihad (“Now batting for Allah, Gaia!”) against Japanese whalers.
One of the
vigilantes activists is none other than Daryl Hannah who I guess is just getting back to her roots (right)?
Whaling is part of Japanese culture. How integral? I don’t know, but who are we to tell them what they can or can’t do in international waters?
Incidents between the “Sea Shepherds” and Japanese whalers in the past have resulted in people getting hurt.
These Hollywood types are really something else. They seem to pontificate about how there is no right and wrong, yet there are plenty of things they seem to find “wrong”. So much so that they take extreme measures to battle whatever they deem as “wrong”, multiculturalism be damned.
Much closer to home, why aren’t they protesting the ritual slaughter of lambs by Muslims and Jews? You wouldn’t need a bulletproof Bat Boat to do it either, but for sure it’d upset the apple cart much more than protesting a distant nation’s customs.
To paraphrase a fictional Politburo member: “Where are the cultural relativists here!?!”
