"I will never accept a single dollar for myself from charitable donations."
The group's 2001 tax return, however, indicates Watson was paid $40,000 as president and CEO. Watson spews hatred for humanity but then gladly suckles with celebrities to get much needed money to carry on illegal acts against legally sanctioned sealers as well as many others around the world. He preaches for people to stop eating fish in hopes of ending commercial fishing but eats fish himself. He cries out against the commercial lumber industry and your going to tell me he never uses anything they supply. Watson seems to be little more than a hypocrite and a coward who scurries away at the first sign of legal repercussion to himself and attacks those who are ill equipped to defend themselves. Paul Watson, international bully.
Watson has said,
"It doesn't matter what is true; it only matters what people believe is true"
And
"If you don't know an answer, a fact, a statistic, then ... make it up on the spot."
Let these nuggets of wisdom resonate in your melon for a little while. No other statements sum up the anti-sealing industry more clearly than these. With all this evidence it really brings into perspective the questionable character, or total lack there of, of Paul Watson. If a person is willing to commit the acts he has, demonstrate a total lack of respect for human kind and seems to be an outright liar, is it so hard to believe he would do something as trivial as fabricate information for his own needs? If this were a court of law and we were presenting the evidence of a criminal case, Paul Watson would be nothing more than an unreliable witness.
In a recent interview, when asked if he viewed violence as a "legitimate means of social change," Watson replied,
"We are a violent species, and we always solve our problems with violence. There have been no exceptions. Nonviolent victories are a myth. Force has always prevailed...One person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter."
This statement brings an old adage to mind, "Live by the sword, die by the sword". We could only be so lucky.
