What did Utah’s Congressman Rob Bishop, who chairs the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee, say at the recent secretive “Slaughter Summit” in Salt Lake City, Utah? (That he likely wouldn’t say publicly.)
“U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah took the stage holding a children’s toy stick horse and cracked a joke about riding a horse to work as Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has done in the streets of Washington.
Bishop, who chairs the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee, said that despite his holding a toy, the summit was addressing a serious issue that many across the country and in Congress don’t understand because they’ve been swayed by activists “who care more about fundraising opportunities than the animals.”
“There are members of Congress who truly believe that every horse is Seabiscuit. Of course, the French think every horse should be Sea-Brisket,” he joked. (Source: Las Vegas Sun)
Hey, Rob what about all the money that Dave Duquette gets paid by Protect the Harvest to pimp for horse slaughter? Duquette is really the one who “cares more about fundraising opportunities than the animals.” Duquette, as you can see on his facebook page, is even building himself a big ol’ house outside Hermiston, Oregon.
This “Slaughter Summit” consisted not only of Rep. Rob Bishop’s bad “joke” and false “facts,” but also of secretive, closed-door meetings between special interest groups and the government employees pandering to them. But, what happened in Utah will not stay in Utah.
