Boxing Day Fox Hunting, Killing For Fun

By Dark Politricks

It’s an old Boxing day tradition in the UK to go fox hunting.

The UK actually banned hunting with hounds a few years back much to the annoyance of a large proportion of the countryside. There are many arguments for and against fox hunting some valid others not so much. You may consider the fox as vermin just like sewer rats or maybe just as a nightly nuisance when they come rummaging through your bins. You can also still be vehemently against letting the fox population grow wild and overtake town and countryside but still consider fox hunting abhorrent.

What does it say about the human condition and the nature of someone who takes great pleasure in killing other living creatures be they spiders, mice, fox, bear or whale. There are many reasons that the majority of people consider valid for killing other animals (excluding humans) for instance you may kill out of necessity for food or clothing or for defence when being attacked.

However to kill for fun which fox hunting is, no matter how much they pretend its not, is something I would consider evil. Little boys who know no better like to kill bugs, I did but I grew out of pulling wings of daddy long-legs around the age of 7 and psychiatrists will tell you that kids who enter their teenage years who have not grown out of that mentality tend to be the sort of people that the police should keep an eye on. To me fox hunters seem like the type of people who never grew out of that stage of careless brutality to other creatures and see fox hunting as a legitimate form of expressing their need to feel powerful by killing something.

They dress up specially in their bright red jackets, black boots and tight trousers before meeting up with friends to have a drink or two beforehand to get into the mood, as if going partying. They then recklessly traipse across field, forest and town in pack formation following the hounds, blowing their horns. They are excited, adrenaline pumping, as they chase this animal, and then once caught, cornered and scared, they kill it. Either by letting the dogs rip it to bits with their snarling growling teeth or by a shot to the head from a gun or maybe even a quick neck snap.

The point is not how humanely the fox is killed or whether its vermin that kills chickens and therefore requires culling. The fact is they are engaging in this ritualistic killing purely for fun and treat a Sunday riding round the local village killing small animals in the same manner as most normal people play football or golf.

There is no getting away from the core aspect of this event. The participants enjoy the act of killing.

Whether it be a tradition that they just want to keep alive or not they see it as an enjoyable way to spend a day. This is why I think fox hunting like any other form of killing for fun should be banned and remained banned as we should really be asking ourselves whether the act of killing something for fun is a legitimate one in a supposedly civilised society.

The recent Tory Lib coalition have yet to repeal Labours ban on hunting with hounds and it will be interesting to see if they attempt to do so as before the election David Cameron and many other Tories gave the impression that they would revisit it and tried to frame the debate as a civil liberty issue.

Whilst I am all for civil liberties and freedom of expression and speech I cannot see how banning a form of psychotic behaviour is anything to do with freedom and if it is we should be allowing many other activities which result in harm to others such as pub brawls, rape and serial killing.

Whilst you can have a legitimate debate over humans supposed dominiance over animal kind and the heirarchy of living beings that are all right to kill for fun without first obtaining a permit surely it comes down to the type of human behaviour that is being exhibited by the killer.

These people are not killing because they are hungry or in danger.

They are not flicking an annoying wasp away or jumping in fright as a spider lands on them. They are choosing to relax by dressing up, getting drunk and then hunting a chosen animal until death.

They show no concern for their preys suffering during it’s painful death and once killed they then rejoice in their act by daubing the victims blood across their faces before celebrating by drinking even more sherry and congratulating each other on a job well done.

They are displaying all the symptoms of blood lust and clear signs of debasement due to unfounded beliefs that they have the right to chose which of earth’s creatures lives or dies. This superiority complex is very similar to thoughts experienced by psychotics, many of which believe that they are the center of the universe and everyone and everything else are just actors without feeling or souls who’s only reason for living is to embellish their own existence.

Therefore I feel that to try and frame the fox hunting debate inside the wider topic of civil liberties and freedom of expression is disingenuous to say the least as it really does come down to a question of acceptable behaviour.

The question of civil liberties wouldn’t be raised if someone was caught riding around town, across gardens and sports fields on a motorbike shooting cats and dogs with an airgun for fun. There is little difference in the behaviour being exhibited apart from the mode of transport, animal being hunted and form of execution therefore why should we allow some sections of society to murder other living beings for fun and not others.

The answer of course, at least in my mind, is that we shouldn’t.

    Excellent commentary here. No surprise that the political parties (including Labour with their faux-fox-hunting ban) who sit back and watch as we sink into the jaws of this corrupt EU regime, also enjoy watching a small animal screaming with pain in the jaws of their bloodthirsty hounds.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
