Dog fighting is brutal and in your face, but I would submit to you other forms of animal entertainment are not much better.
Again with the either/or arguments. You cannot defend dog fights or bull fighting so you point out other forms of entertainment which are less than perfect. None of your arguments has directly defended bull fighting, you merely deflect the debate to other examples of mans inhumanity to animals as if that makes mistreating dogs, cock fighting or bullrings acceptable.
For legal reasons, we are not threatening to destroy U.S. government property with our glorious medieval siege engine. But if we wanted to, we could. But we won’t. But we could.

I'm not trying to defend any Animal fights......... I do defend cultures traditions to pursue these events or do away with them as they choose.

What I'm not deflecting, I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of people that are shocked by animal fights, but don't have less passion for cruelty to man or the cruelty to animals through accepted forms of animal entertainment.

I've told you a couple times I've seen them and they are fucking brutal, how is that a defense of it ? I never once said, yeah, but they mean well and they use the meat of the dead animal to feed the needy. I give 2 fucks if Latinos want to do this. I also think eating whales is fucking stupid and unnecessary, but I'm not going all Green Peace to stop the Nippons either.

Well I've not said I'm happy with cruelty to man or cruelty to animals in other forms of ''entertainment'' so accusations of hypocrisy wash off like water off a ducks back.
I'm not asking you to join greenpeace or protest outside a bullring. I would simply be happy with an admission that torturing animals for entertainment is wrong no matter how long a nation's culture and traditions have supported it.

If you consider that a win and an end to the debate then good for you, well done you have successfully argued in favour of cruelty to animals.

To be fair, Hitler would probably gas people who are cruel to dogs. He did have a soft spot for his furry friends.

That's a bullshit argument.................... I am the one standing up for the sanctity of human life. So comparing me to Hitler Tötung die Juden ist Scheisse.


EDIT:
Note, there is a reason we remember the Hitlers of the world and forget the Sir St. George Gore. Now Gore, was a cruel bastard responsible for countless deaths and cruelty just for fun. But no one knows who the hell he is, the difference is the importance of human life.

If you can't see how defending a country's right to torture animals is the same as defending abuse of animals then I can't help you.
And nobody is defending the mistreatment of humans so just drop that bullshit argument already.
The difference between us seems to be that you can only defend the sanctity of human life whereas I can defend the sanctity of both human and animal life.

Right up to the point he tested the strength of the poison Eva was to take on his beloved dog Blondi.
