Paul Watson, our favorite terrorist on the high seas, is at it again. He’s just published a memoir of his exploits, entitled Seal Wars: Twenty-five Years on the Front Lines With the Harp Seals. The Edmonton Journal reviewed Watson’s book. Here are a few choice quotes:
“There’s no questioning his arrogance and complete disregard for any views contradictory to his. . . . In his introduction he writes: ‘I’m not writing to impress you, the reader. Quite frankly, I do not care a fig for your opinion of my actions or your point of view’. . . . It’s a frustrating opening that makes it difficult to remain unbiased about Watson’s actions. . . . He is clearly addicted to the media attention he receives.” The Journal fails to mention that the book’s foreword was written by that legendary environmental biologist, Martin Sheen.
While Watson certainly relishes the spotlight, there’s a great deal he’d rather you stay in the dark about. Check out what he said behind closed doors at the Animal Rights 2002 conference. The best that can be said of Watson — a die-hard advocate of violence — is that he follows through on his beliefs. In pursuit of his twisted vision of “justice for animals, Watson has done it all.
