Dear Editor:

I lament the passing of Fox News TV and radio host Alan Colmes, a caring soul and a longtime friend to PETA who despised cruelty to animals.

Over the years, I had the pleasure and good fortune to be interviewed by Alan from time to time, both on Hannity & Colmes — the Fox News show where he was the perfect foil for his Republican cohost—and later on his syndicated radio program, The Alan Colmes Show.

He was always kind and respectful to his guests, in sharp contrast to the coarse and antagonistic tone that has become all too common. Never one to pass up an opportunity to engage in conversations about animal rights issues, he gave PETA a forum to discuss everything from the controversy surrounding the killing of Cecil the lion and Harambe the gorilla to our campaign to free the orcas held captive at SeaWorld.

Animals need all the friends they can get, and his death leaves them short an important one. In his memory, let’s exercise our right to speak up for those whose interests are often ignored, by choosing a vegan meal or a pleather belt or adding an extra half-hour to the family dog’s walk. Visit PETA.org to read about other ways to help the animals Alan loved.

Very truly yours,

  1. I am Malaysian-Chinese. IN PLAIN ENGLISH: I AM NON-MUSLIM MALAYSIAN, WHEREBY MALAYSIA IS A MUSLIM COUNTRY. When USA Presidents and BRITISH Prime Ministers visit Malaysia, they speak 2 the Malaysian Monarch & the Malaysian Prime Minister, who R Muslims. NEVER, since 1957, have these heads of state spoken 2 a NON-MUSLIM Malaysian. IN PLAIN ENGLISH: USA RECOGNIZES THE ISLAMIC ESTABLISHMENT IN MALAYSIA & THE ACTIONS OF THE ISLAMIC ESTABLISHMENT IN MALAYSIA. This Malaysian-Chinese problem ALSO EXISTS in the country of Indonesia-where 44 US President BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA grew up AND,- DIDN”T REALIZE. Today: USA is talking about persecution of MUSLIMS from OTHER FAITHS. BUT NEVER: PERSECUTION BY MUSLIMS OF OTHER FAITHS. For Chinese-Malaysians: SINCE 1957. ALSO: For Chinese-Indonesians. The Municiple Council of Malaysia puts down dogs which are not licensed OR which are licensed but bite Muslims. NEVER any other animals. SO: I secretly beat baby kittens, pregnant mother cats 2 DEATH. What I do constitutes cruelty 2 animals. BUT: If you voice your disapproval for my action of killing cats, AND do not, however, voice your disapproval of the Muslims killing dogs: THEN WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS NOT SUPPORTING ANIMAL RIGHTS. End
