Borchardt Calls for “War” Against Pit Bull Owners.

Borchardt, founder of Daxton’s Friends has declared all out war on Pit Bull owners after the release of the new book written by Bronwen Dickey.

At this moment, sitting behind his computer in the great state of Wisconsin, Borchardt is messaging all of his fellow fear mongering minions and stuffing envelopes with his fliers while he seethes with his ever growing rage that the public is finally seeing just how hateful and violent the BSL movement has become thanks to a new article that was written by Josh Shaffer. It’s no secret that Borchardt is partially responsible for creating Pit Bulls & Amputees, an ” anonymous ” facebook page dedicted to the usual BSL reteric and Shaffer explains in the article just how BSL advocates attempt to stay anonymous while indulging in their usual online hate cyber attacks.  The bottom line? Borchardt is very mad, once again.

Not only does Borchardt send the materials used in physical stalking done by Craig Brown, he brags about it and in usual Borchardt’s  fanatic behavior, everyone who disagrees with him and the fundamental concept of BSL are all liars and frauds. He doesn’t want to hear a single thing UNLESS you are actively out stalking people who dare to speak up against the flawed BSL concept and his fragile grip on reality is slipping and it becomes glaringly obvious in his latest fanatical rant.

Calling millions of innocent families that chose to have pit bull/bully types and the common mutt for a pet as domestic terrorists is a great example of just how obsessive and all consuming Borchardt has become in the outright attack of the majority of the United States population. Ironically enough, the very thing he outlines in his rant, is the one thing he denies those who he is continuously attacking. Let’s break down his idiot questions and answer them:

  1. Can you find common ground with people that could give a shit about you and your family? 

Has Borchardt found common ground with the millions of pit bull owners attempting to keep their family pets safe from the erratic and often dangerous behavior from his BSL movement? Does he give a “shit” about the millions of families living peacefully with their pit bull  type dog? That answer is obvious after you check out the many facebook pages created by Borchardt, many like his facebook page where he posts pictures of children who have pit bulls in the family. How many of those families has he victimized?

2. Can we find common ground with people who refuse to listen to your point of view,   discredit your source, or refuse to read the victim’s stories?

I don’t know, can Borchardt find common ground with the millions of families that are living peacefully with their dogs even after Borchardt attempts to discredit all of the professional affiliations that do not support BSL? Can he find common ground with the families affected negatively by BSL or will he continue to mock families that have to give up their innocent pet because of BSL?

3. Can we find common ground with people who care more about dogs than the innocent children maimed, mauled and killed by these dogs?

While the majority of the population sympathizes for the loss of a child or an injury done to a dog, the majority of the population still realizes just how rare dog bite fatalities are.  Why should families give up their innocent dogs because a tragedy happened? If you are a gun owner, will you be giving up your guns because a child was killed by a gun thousands of miles from you? Studies have shown just how ineffective BSL has been and how other methods such as education is one of the greatest tools in reducing dog attacks.

4. Can we find common ground with people who flat out deny the history and heritage of these dogs?

It’s interesting that Borchardt keeps circling back to the “history” and “heritage” of all pit type dogs. It’s no secret what the original purpose of the original breed was for and while there are obviously still dog fighters attempting to recreate the lineage perfect for the gruesome and illegal act of dog fighting, it’s a safe bet to say that the majority of “pit type dogs” sitting in homes are glorified mutts. Could they have “pit bull” in them? Of course, but then again, they could also have lab, poodle, great dane and about 400 other breeds mixed with them. Those that have  American Pit Bull Terriers are not blind to the history of their chosen breed and many of those that have rescued dogs from a fighting operation know all too well about why their dogs were created and yet it’s those individuals, like the owners of the Vick dogs that have done the greatest service to their community by showing just how amazing these dogs can be when taken out of the abusive environment.

Yet Borchardt still wonders why people just won’t toss their own beliefs out the window and support him and his failing cause. Not only does Borchardt search for conflict, he obviously enjoys the ability to stalk and confront people that he knows will not see eye to eye with him, either that or he is short that many brain cells where he honestly thought going to obvious rescuers that worked on finding homes for pit bulls would really sit down and listen to a man whose main goal is to kill all of their adoptable dogs that were pit bull type dogs?

At the end of the day Borchardt loves the conflict and trauma he inflicts. While he will never publically announce that he was the driving force and one of the admins of the Pit Bull and Amputee pages ( that ironically changed their name to “Pit Bull Public Safety Education”), it’s no secret in the inner circle of his fear mongering morons that he is one of the few running that offensive hate page. He’s more than welcome to dispute it, which he will, but he will not offer up any evidence to back his claim, which for Borchardt, that’s just the norm.

Borchardt calls for war and as usual, it’s just one more thing he will fail at.

Just a Random Thought….

Nature Versus Nurture

It’s like the never ending battle when we talk Nature vs. Nurture in the animal kingdom- especially when we are talking about dogs. However- (((Warning! ::Spoiler Alert!!::))) as I was siting down watching Jurassic World with my 11 year old- it seems as if the argument has been answered, well- a version of the answer, Hollywood style that is…

RaptorBabiesChrisPratt

Alright- it’s no secret I’ve always been a fan of the Jurassic Park franchise. I like the idea of movies showing just how wrong things can go when humans try to play God and each and every Jurassic movie does that.

From birth, the gang of Raptors worked with the Owen Grady, a Velociraptor expert and trainer- its obvious that the closeness was an important fact because during the movie, when discussing the connections or lack of connections between humans and dino’s Owen comments:

“I was there the moment they were born, I was imprinted on them…”

 Towards the end of the Jurassic World, you notice an internal struggle with in the ever deadly raptors. The struggle between nature and nurture. Do they chomp on the man who raised them, respected them, trained them and took care of them or….. do they try to protect him?

(((Warning!! ::: if you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want to know- stop reading now and come back AFTER you’ve seen the movie!! If you don’t care ten please continue!!:::)))

Now, I’m not saying they didn’t kill anyone because they did and at least one was a well deserved blood bath- but what’s interesting is who they didn’t kill and the fact that it was a conscience choice to NOT kill them. Is this Hollywood’s way of telling us that genetics and environment can play a part in animal/human interactions?

“Studies of more than 14.5 million twin pairs across 17,804 traits from 2748 publications, they found variation for human traits and diseases was 49 per cent genetic (nature), and 51 per cent due to environmental factors (nurture).” -University of Queensland scholar Dr Beben Benyamin combined with Dutch researchers for a meta-analysis of more than 14.5 million twin pairs 2015

When it comes to dogs- studies show the something similar:

 “It is critical to remember that both genetics and environmental influences play an important role in the behavioral development of dogs.  Through both responsible breeding and  raising it will be possible to produce puppies that will successfully integrate into our lives.”

Although, one who have to wonder if environment plays a even bigger role? As humans evolved- so did dogs. Humans breed dogs for a job but they also shaped the emotional stabilities of their dogs  When I read about the fatal wild dog pack attacks on reservations-  I don’t see how people can’t tell how environmental/nurture or lack of played a large part. Does nurture somehow counter balance genetics? Do both play a equally important part in having a healthy stable animal?

Proof shows us that the myth “It’s all how you raise them” is wrong when discussing how a dog will ne 100% of the time but what it does show is the myth “it’s all how you raise them” is a small part of  a ever evolving dog. When you have poorly bred dogs whose genetics are a mix and match of instability and place them in a environment that feeds the genetic instability- it’s no shocker that the dog is a hot mess- BUT proof shows us that when you take the same dog and remove them from the poor environment- those same dogs somehow are able to balance out some of those genetic instabilities. I’m not saying those dogs won’t have issues but are those issues workable? Absolutely- the Vicks dogs are a great example of that and they are not the only ones.

Sometimes nature triumphs over nurture and sometimes nurture triumphs over nature but we see its always a tug of war, but honestly- what can you expect from animals? The fact that dogs have evolved to the point of not looking at us like prey tells me that the internal balancing act is real and it was great to see the very visual tug of war in such an iconic movie- not to mention it highlights just how wrong it can go when you stomp on mother nature and create things that should never be created in the first place…. :::coughcoughtoadlinecoughcough::: Capture

Seriously… what could have gone wrong with that offspring?

Daily BSL Quotes

“Typical delusional lying pit nutter making up her fantastics as she went along, utterly non credible, i am sure her mutant undog will eventually get her goat, literally in her throat.”

Literally folks…

“I’ve produced a defensive combat stance before when surprised by one of these beasts.  The owner just smirked at me.”

Rick is Kung Fu fighting, doubt he’s fast as lightening…

When you are a pit-nutter, and a pitiot, you worship the dog god above all else. When you worship the dog god, it always demands blood sacrifice. When a child is killed by a killer pit bull that is worshiped, they consider it a sacrifice to their dog god,  and the blood thirsty pit-nutters are satiated. By not caring about the human death, which happened in the jaws of their pit bull dog god, they show that they do NOT care about humans, they do not care about children, they only care about dangerous killer pit bulls, and they hope they can kill again. Time to call them on their blood lust.”

Hmm…last time I checked, I havent sacrificed anything to any known God…

“Darwin theory will eventually weed out the stupid people who own pits thinking they will not desock their face from their scull like the leather of a football. And then eat it!  “

Unfortuntly Richard is proof that the Darwin theory is failing at weeding out stupid people…

Lesley’s insightful post about the father, high on crack, with a history of drug dealing, with complaints of aggressive dogs AND fell asleep after his crack binge who was 100% at fault for the deadly mauling of his son:

“How difficult this is, to prosecute a bereaved parent. To add to the grief and guilt.

But we are approaching the point where very few parents do not know or cannot know, on some level, the dangers of these dogs. And sadly, there exists a plethora of parents who know full WELL what these dogs can be like, who KNOW that they kill and mutilate children on a regular basis, but who simply refuse to believe that THEIR own dog would do so a thing.

To be put on trial is the right thing to do. Even if no punishment is administered, or sparse punishment given, it sends out a message to ALL parents who CHOOSE to combine a Pit dog or any other KNOWN dangerous breed or type of dog, with their own precious child.

A child is a gift to the world. It is NOT just the creature of its own family. The world must mourn the loss of a child. And ask questions WHY a child died, and could that death have been prevented BY the
primary care-givers of that child – the parents. In this case, the death was preventable. ALL child deaths from Pit dog attack are preventable.

Asking questions is no longer enough. The parent must stand accused. At the end of the day that each broken child no longer sees, we must stand up for the child robbed of his life, robbed of her life. And even if that parent is not punished by the law, the parent must stand in front of the world and be seen to be ‘on trial’. The message must be clear to all those who gamble with the child/Pit dog combination – YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE so that other innocent children will live, even though YOURS did not.

Uh… nope. It’s totally not difficult to press charges on parents induced by crack who causes their 4 year old son to be killed by known aggressive dogs. I sure as hell hope those parents feel grief and guilt. This is what I don’t understand- they want to call those of us who are the responsible majority the dangerous ones yet…. they want to excuse the NEGLIGENT ones because…. why? It doesn’t take brains to figure out how or why that 4 year old boy was killed.  But I do agree- the majority of all child related deaths from pit dogs are preventable… however that would mean irresponsible parties need to stop blaming a dog and taking responsibility for their actions… but of course, that would mean they would have to be responsible and we know that won’t ever happen in that group.

“And even if that parent is not punished by the law, the parent must stand in front of the world and be seen to be ‘on trial’.”

Wait- isn’t that what BSL advocates call victim blaming? Well, if Lesley the Ninja, the old Jedi of the BSL advocates says this is what must be done….  lets put those irresponsible parties in front of the world and be put to “trial”.

The court calls….. Susan Iwiki, Jeff Borchardt, Gail Benford, Angela Rutledge… should we continue?
