UF Would Have Defended Nazis If It Filled Their Coffers!

Negotiation is Over - Florida

by Camille Marino

Last week I reported that University of Florida re$earcher Mingzhou Ding is the person who actually mutilates monkeys. But I was wrong. He does not carve up the bodies of live animals; his co-conspirators do it for him. He is simply the Primary Investigator (PI) who garners over a quarter million dollars in taxpayer money from the NIH annually and who has built a long and distinguished career in the wonderful world of animal torture. It pays well, ya know!

According to “UF defends accused ‘animal murderer,'” published last night by the “Independent Florida Alligator” (IFA) — their student-run paper — UF Public Affairs director Janine Sikes said:

“Organizations such as this [NIO] use mischaracterizations and inaccuracies to make an argument, and they falsely alleged things about this individual [Ding] who just analyzed the data.”

And the university’s position was followed by a nicely-placed quote from me:

“But that doesn’t mitigate culpability.”

Hmmm. As an institution of higher learning, one would assume that UF is concerned with such things as truthfulness, accuracy, context, and journalistic integrity. But, nah… not so much. It seems that when vivisection and profits enter the equation, we consistently watch in dumb amazement as objectivity yields to the propaganda machine. And, pitifully, IFA has succumbed. But it is not difficult to understand why. The student reporter, Jon Silman, in response to his questions, was hung up on twice by the Biomedical Department of his own university and, more likely than not, his own academic career is at stake if he should stray from UF party lines. We both, however, share the belief that the university is hiding behind half-truths and skewed statements. The fact that Silman did not even forward to me a copy of this article after publishing yesterday tells me all I need to know. This is not journalism. It is a propaganda piece. As this writer knows, I hide nothing, speak with absolute candor and honesty, and am always available to answer anything from anyone. The same cannot be said for UF. And, if I’m wrong about anything, then I invite Public Affairs director Janine Sikes to set the record straight, right here, out in the open. I censor no one.

Now, let’s take a look at “mischaracterizations and inaccuracies,” shall we? The University position seems to be that Ding is no more culpable than an historian who details past atrocities.

One only needs to take a look at the body of Mercenary Ding’s work to understand that he is not a disinterested and feckless professor sitting behind a computer innocently googling information from third party abusers. For example, a new book by Oxford Press, edited by Mercenary Ding, brings together a compendium of industrial abusers. And, in 781 articles dating from 1975 to present, the government site, PubMed, documents Ding’s complicity in every conceivable kind of animal sadism perpetrated on individuals from every species ranging from rodents to nonhuman primates. It is easy to envision Ding sitting at a computer inputting data that Josef Mengele extracted from the bodies of his human experiments. And I am confident that, if UF was reaping the financial windfall of NIH grants from these atrocities, Ms. Sikes would be on the frontlines defending Ding.

As Dr. Jerry Vlasak aptly observes, “the vast majority of Nazis did not participate in the actual killing of Jews, but provided the logistics, funding, and support for others to do so. They are still just as morally implicated and responsible as those who dropped the pellets down the chute. Perhaps moreso for being the instigators/planners/funders.”
