Pickering on ELF

San Diego’s Channel 10 interviewed former Earth Liberation Front spokesman Leslie James Pickering in February in which the apologist for terrorism did an excellent job of summarizing the views of ELF extremists,

Violence is a necessary element of an oppressive struggle.

And certainly the ALF and ELF are nothing if not oppressive.

Pickering added that the goal of ELF activists should be nothing less than the overthrow of the United States government,

I don’t think they’re [ELF extremists] going far enough at all. They’re only part of a larger building revolutionary movement that won’t stop until it has a successful overthrow of this country.
