Cozad said:

” … every animal cruelty law, every cock fighting law, every horse soring law, every single law against animal cruelty and animal welfare in America are unconstitutional.

I am a gamecock farmer.

I am a cock fighter.

I have a God-given constitutional and protected right to own, possess and harvest my livestock.

My livestock happen to be gamecocks.

I have the right to harvest my gamecocks.

The method to harvest gamecocks is has been to allow them to fight for 3,000 years.

Now we have government agencies making laws and passing laws based on communism.

Understand,  I put together the federal and supreme court rulings to prove that every animal cruelty law, every cock fighting law, every horse soring law, every single law against animal cruelty and animal welfare in America are unconstitutional.

Understand, that any law that is unconstitutional is illegal, and any enforcement of that law is an illegal act by the government.

Animals are property

There is a United States Supreme Court ruling out of Ohio along with ownership of property comes the right to harvest livestock.   Shoot beef cattle in the head with a gun.     Goats, you hang them up by their back feet and you cut their throats.   That’s how they are harvested.   Fish, you throw them on a block of ice and allow them to suffocate.

I am a gamecock farmer.

Gamecocks are simply harvested by allowing them to fight.

That’s been their method of harvest for more than 3,000 years.

Referring to law enforcement agencies coming on to his property to enforce laws against cock fighting,  Cozad said,   “Well,  bring a gun. Because when you come to my house we’re going to have a private party.

Now we have government agencies making laws and passing laws based on communism.

We have now lived long enough to see David L. Howard get in bed with the Cock Fighters.

No word yet if there is going to be:   “The Cock Fighter Report”.

Henry Tilford and the Celebration Founders are spinning in their graves.
