Moonbats Kill Opossum Drop

There isn’t much fun to be had in a world run by sanctimonious moonbats:

Brasstown (NC) is known as the Possum Capital of the South, and at the stroke of midnight on Dec. 31, the city will hosts its annual Possum Drop in which a live possum in a Plexiglas cage will be lowered to celebrate the coming of the New Year. The possum is freed after the event.

But the tradition has been ended lest it oppress possums.

An administrative law judge ruled Tuesday that the state cannot issue a special permit allowing a caged marsupial to be lowered 20 feet over a stage — a 20-year tradition once profiled in The New York Times and the highlight of the mountain town’s celebration.

“Hunters must afford wild animals the same right Patrick Henry yearned for,” Senior Administrative Law Judge Fred Morrison Jr. wrote in his order. “’Give me liberty, or give me death!’”

It is blasphemy for our micromanaging statist rulers even to speak the name of Patrick Henry.

The decision hands a victory to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which sued the state in December and has long argued that confining a ‘possum and subjecting it to loud noises and heavy crowds constitutes cruel treatment, regardless of it being released into the wild after the event.

Typically of PETA, which is known for killing animals on a scale that would impress Heinrich Himmler, it argued that the town could kill an opossum but could not display one in a cage for technocratic reasons.

Maybe one day they will start a new tradition, whereby a left-wing judge or PETA kook is lowered into a pot of hot tar, after which laughing celebrants cover them in feathers.

But it specializes in killing fun.

    They could toss it off the top of the courthouse thus giving it a brief moment of liberty, followed by death.

  2. Mike says:

    I am a member of PETA. “People Eating Tasty Animals”

  3. AC says:

    Media whores.

    These critters are varmints. How many will be unceremoniously shot today?

  4. Doug says:

    IF ONLY we could replace possums with “Moonbats.”

  5. Jodie says:

    Since most or all PETA supporters are liberal and likely to be pro-abortion, maybe intead of the possum drop, they could take a pregnant possum, insert forceps into her womb, pull any babies partially out by their legs, jam scissors into their brains, twist the scissors in order to enlarge the hole, then suck their brains out./sarc

  6. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    We have been seeing more and more of these critters lately, though most do not make the winter.
    You guys in the south need to control your pets

  7. grayjohn says:

    piss on the judge
    piss on peta
    drop the possum and tell them all to fuck off and die

  8. ant says:

    Now if they had only rounded up possums, drove a van full of them down to a river and dumped ’em…they would be considered honorable PETA members.

  9. MissAnthropy says:

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    To prove to the possum that it could be done.

  10. Cluebat from Exodar says:

    I wonder if they would object if it were the redneck drop in yankeeville.

  11. IslandLifer says:

    Shoot it out of a cannon.

  12. Joe says:

    I once had a possum take up residence in my garage. After several attempts to catch it with a live trap, I gave up and shot it. They are dumb animals, much like obama voters.

  13. Jimbo says:

    This reminds me: You old farts will remember ‘WKRP in Cincinnati’ – the episode where Les Nesman has the ‘Turkey drop’ from a helicopter – he didn’t realize they couldn’t fly – one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen.

    I would pay to see that.

  15. Maudie N Mandeville says:

    Shoot it in front of everyone, then throw the carcass off the roof.

  16. Jimbo says:

    Free the Possum! We need the roadkill!

  17. Dr. 9 says:

    Political correctness is a far greater threat to our freedom and liberty than is terrorism…”

    Ever wonder how PETA feels about abortions?
