Willing Gladiators Not Slaves

The following paragraphs were my correspondence with a friend who had a comment to my Cockfighting – Sports and Lifestyle blog draft before I published it. It started as cockfighting and animal use in sports but I really love what I wrote in the end. The phrase “Willing Gladiators Not Slaves” resonates what it is all about. Gamefowls and Patriotic Men. What do you think?

Friend:

The reason it’s banned in the USA is because it’s cruel, not as an affront to liberty. The mentality of people who think it’s entertaining to see two animals try to kill each other is definitely suspect. Would you watch two dogs killing each other? What about two humans – would you watch a fight to the death with a bucket of popcorn on your lap?

Byron:

Thanks for your opinion/Qs.

Animal use in sports must be respected by all. Long live to horse racing, dog racing, wild animal hunting, fishing, bullfighting, horsefighting, pigeon racing.

I will support cockfighting & dogfighting when put up in a US vote again TO FIGHT FOR LIBERTY. Also willing gladiators not slaves.

Animal cruelty lobbyist & laws got their day as “the end justify the means”. End – trample liberty and criminalize honest men. Means – animal cruelty law.

Liberty is the #1 requirement for peaceful free society.

USA, France, & other countries even the Philippines were eventually formed at its present form by revolution.

“… inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; … ; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, … ”
– Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776

I am watching right now an Ireland cockfighting video I bought years ago – a documentary about cockfighting in Ireland by Spotlight Jeremy Adams.

Searching “spotlight jeremy adams” also results to this BBC link – Spotlight wins Royal Television Society Television Journalism award. Spotlight won in the Nations and Regions Current Affairs category for the special investigation The Pit Bull Sting.

I am a liberty and freedom advocate so I respect both side of a story. BUT do not support laws that will restrict others to pursue their happiness and personal matters that do not affect anyone including using their properties like animals in sports.

I would just like to expound on my reply to you about me supporting “willing gladiators not slaves.”.

We currently have different combat sports. Most of which are becoming more of an act rather than real combat. Fighters have no pride and honor in themselves anymore of ending the fight with prowess. I really hope the outcome are not staged or choreographed. They are more concern about promotion, stardoom, acting (instead of real fighting) performance.

News TV on wars around the world are becoming a form of entertainment. We can see from embedded videographers within a platoon or combat unit and their video footages the real war, the real human patriotic courage to fight, and the real damage of war to life and to property.

Some of these soldiers are really thinking that it is their calling to fight for their nation. And these are the fortunate ones – gladiators. Some are thinking that they are there because they could not afford college. And these are the unfortunate ones – slaves.

Cockfight rules and weapons varies as well. the most famous weapon is the Filipino long knife. Malaysia uses long knife too. Other notable weapons are American Gaff, Mexican Short Knife, Puerto Rican Postiza, and naked heel or natural spur.

Banned in USA due to laws against liberty and freedom. Greedy lobbyist and ignorant law makers runs the animal cruelty band wagon to trample the rights of free men.

No one love these game fowls but the breeders, handlers, cockers, and aficionados. Day or night. Sleet or rain. From egg to brood years – multiple winners got to propagate their genes.

Cockfighting is a 365 days a year sports – breeding, caring, training, punctuated by 10 seconds, 10 minutes, or 2 hours of cockfight in the cockpit. It is the family way of life and sole livelihood to many gamecock breeder family – just like the beloved sports of horse racing.

Chickens are fought typically as stags, bullstags, and cocks. chicks may fight as early as a day old.

Most important lesson to take from cockfighting is gameness. (til the end.)
