Hoenig: Snacky dog is property. If I want to take Snacky’s head and smash it against a brick wall (I’d never do that to you) it’s my right to do it!I'll make Hoenig a deal. He has the "right" to smash his pet's head into a brick wall if I can have the "right" to smash my fist into his face afterwards.
Hoenig is the ideological equivalent of a communist, as far as I'm concerned.
Perhaps he might benefit from brushing up on his great literature.
Queen: I will try the forces Of these thy compounds on such creatures as We count not worth the hanging, but none human, To try the vigour of them and apply Allayments to their act, and by them gather Their several virtues and effects.--Shakespeare, Cymbeline Act 1 Scene V
Cornelius: Your highness Shall from this practice but make hard your heart
Update: Regarding the communist ideologue comparison:
In Stalin's USSR, Darwinian evolution was rejected because it conflicted with Marxist ideology. Genetics was considered "fascist" propaganda.
Here's Hoenig on global warming explaining why it's "bogus."
There’s no scientific proof that global warming even exists. To be honest, it’s a bogus consensus dreamed up by Greens because they hate industry. They hate advancement. They hate technology…Greens will lead us back to the stone ages.Notice the similarity?
