a new pit bull advocate has emerged on the battle field.
introducing YONAH WARD GROSSMAN!
GROSSMAN apparently fancies himself as some kind of comedian. i suspect he is in search of a loyal following to give his career a boost. and there is no audience in the galaxy that is more gullibly loyal than pit bull owners.
GROSSMAN doesn't just repeat the old propaganda, he is creating new material for future generations of gullible morons.
on may 2, GROSSMAN kicked off his trilogy of pit fantasy promoting the "intelligent, faithful, sweet, gentle" breed as mascot and baby sitter. GROSSMAN completely omits any mention of the pit bull's original function as fighting dog. he cites fictional characters NIPPER, TIGE and PETEY as his proof. GROSSMAN contrasts america's wholesome babysitter with the GSD, the dog used almost exclusively by the military and law enforcement. "German Shepherds for example are vicious, unreliable, uncontrollable and a movement has been formed to ban them altogether."
GROSSMAN'S second installment is my favorite. he doesn't just regurgitate the nanny dog myth, the first it was the GSDs, then the dobermans.... myth, and the ATTS scam. GROSSMAN states: "In temperance tests (the equivalent of how many times your kid can poke your dog in the eye before he bites him) of all breeds the most tolerant was the Golden Retriever. The second most tolerant was the pit bull." WTF? this test is a figment of his imagination. it is not enough for this nutter to debunk the locking jaw myth and most powerful bite myth, GROSSMAN attempts to create another bugaboo breed by stating the honor of most powerful bite goes to the german shepherd!!! again, complete fabrication that flies in the face of reality. watch this youtube video comparing dog attack styles and bite force among the malinois (195), dutch shepherd (232), american bulldog (305) and a mastiff (556). or this youtube video where they compare the GSD (238), pit bull (235) and rottweiler (328)
just for fun, here is a wolf (406) and he is not even trying.
in GROSSMAN'S may 6 blog post, he transforms one smuggled boston bulldog (sgt stubby) into an army of pit bulls that became known as "our national canine babysitter". "They also fought in the trenches with our soldiers and died on the battlefields beside them." GROSSMAN tosses in a smattering of photos and vintage illustrations as evidence for his position. only the illustrations appear to be american pit bull terriers. (fyi, General Patton's dog was an english bull terrier, a pit bull, but not an american pit bull terrier, ie nanny dog). it is always a head scratcher when pit nutters prance around the "pit bull's" military history which is in sharp contrast to military reality. there is absolutely no evidence that the military EVER utilized pit bulls and military strictly forbids pit bulls from their bases. GROSSMAN then tries to reinforce the "they won't start the fight but they'll finish it" myth in comparing the US attitude towards the world war one and two."We tried hard to avoid a fight but if left no other choice we were going to seriously fuck you up." YONAH, please read the language of dogs, normal and psychopathic to better understand the pit bull's role in this myth.
GROSSMAN ends his tribute to the pit bull with "The dogs of course are exactly the same. Only the owners changed." of course this statement also collides with the facts:
"When the Pit Bull Terrier was introduced into America, he was more commonly found to be owned by prize fighters, saloon keepers and habitues, sporting men and the like. From the start the breed has earned an unjust reputation due to his fighting ability and the character of the owner." (Colby, 1936) then and now, the riff raff has always been drawn to the pit bull.
YONAH, stick with what you know - PENISES.
