Genocide, by definition, accounts for a much broader understanding of what constitutes group and/or species destruction (as I am using here, and in much of the reference materials as well). What I have found, in addition to mass murder (ironically, this being done currently to Wild Horses, most often, by the use of the Pesticides in the form of birth controls) I find:
- At the top of the list is preventing births by toxic chemicals, which often kills also — mostly experimental drugs used, to find the most proficient ways to kill the species, in real-time;
- Physical abuse and eventual destruction, in this case going to auctions and/or slaughter;
- Rounding up species (i.e., in this case Wild Horses) in groups, to destroy efficiently and effectively, and less costly, within group settings (has anyone checked long-term holding which BLM conducts over-site, lately?);
- Changing the name and affiliation-status, to Pesticides’, i.e., renaming it Immunocontraceptive to make it appear as something it is not, as many have found, which we discover is a false narrative in total – in Part II explained and described;
- Planned programs to disperse information, i.e. Disinformation and False Narratives, to the Public, deception actually disguised as non-profits, convincing the public, through fear or horrible future events will happen to the Wild Horses if not used, et al., if we do not support and take action immediately — even though more options are available, we must not forget Genocide their ultimate goal — nothing else;
- Number 5 followed up by programs to demean and create more disinformation adequately to generate a hateful bias toward the species, as well as toward those who distribute truth . . .
- All of the above, inclusive of all process and execution of Genocide, paid for with our taxpayer dollars!
What is interesting, to make special note of here, is the fact this is all historical, and we are seeing unfold currently, right before us, right now. We can, for example, go to the Salem Witch Trials, the German Holocaust or Genocide of the German people that were of Jewish belief and ascent, or the most recent form of Genocide, the Russians attacks upon the Ukraine — as well as similar propaganda techniques used upon the Wild Horses.
We discover that history upholds a lot of the information that I am speaking of here, and especially the process in order to get to the point of total destruction – either of a people, groups of people, of Wildlife, and of Wild Horses.
And yes, we also discover it is people, that are willingly taking part in these situations of Genocide over the ages, and today within Wild Horse Advocacy – but these corrupted people never admit doing so, and some so corrupt and looking for profits, that they either ignore, or simply do not know what it is they do not know — but history will not be gentle to them, what so ever. When I mention we have people disguised as Horse Advocates, and they play both sides of the fence, this is what they are doing.
Make no doubt of this situation, as history is very clear in the entire situations of genocide, and these corrupted people stick out like a sore-thumb, as the saying goes, at least to those who have the knowledge to see it.
A good example: To make a statement of how much you love Wild Horses, then support and/or dart Pesticides into their system, and actually their entire life process – and knowingly you have the awareness of disseminating Disinformation and False Narrative, in particular about the Pesticides used and other toxic chemicals within the darts, for example – as evidence shows quite well and over time, then your actions do not fit what you are saying, what so ever. Now many more will know your dubious nature — eventually you people will be stopped, it is simply a small matter of time now!
They also are paid well to do so, as well as treated well by officials, and all part of the “Game-On” narrative of False Narrative. What we do not see, is the main provocateurs, the behind the curtain cowards i.e. the Leaders of countries or groups, directly involved in the Genocide, but remain hidden all the while giving the order to do so to others – who fulfill the obligation of Destruction of the chosen group to murder / destroy.
We also discover, through history, situations that matches up quite well with today’s commercialized non-profits, when they refer to themselves as Wild Horse Advocates. Profoundly, they generate a troubling situation of basic management daily, of the Genocide of the Wild Horses, and within a context of False Narrative alongside Disinformation – this reasoning is rather a telling set of circumstances when seen –
- Eradication or ignoring of law;
- Censorship or attempts at censoring those who know or write about the truth;
- Restrictions on language or open-debate upon terms e.g., changing the term Humane for example;
- Withholding food and medicine;
- Moral debasement, and crippling paradigms for future Wild Horse Management, that really make no sense at all. . . but all of it reinforces the use, fr example one of many, of toxic chemicals as experimental birth controls, and within false narratives; discuss how it will all “Save” the Wild Horses;
- And in this case, remain steadfast in their false narratives, which, we can also consider it Disinformation, about Wild Horse over-population on Public Lands.
These acts, of genocide, are direct and harmful, that indeed compromise the quality of life of a Wild Horse Bands’ ability, and as a group, to function within their Bands, as well as survive, or to even carry on as a group. The disenfranchisement of Wild Horse Bands, and the break-up of the bands, correlates precisely with the efforts to generate further genocide upon the species of the Wild Horses, and by the use of Pesticides and many other toxic chemicals, that are surrounded by false narratives, disinformation, as well as awkward at best propaganda. We see the evidence, which compiles daily now, in regard to genocide, and the actual process being played out — as I state above, right in front of us all.
The fact is that Pesticides destroy. History is very clear about that, and the ultimate outcomes of using Pesticides as a management source for anything at all. The people committing to the atrocity of genocide, come into the landscape very challenged. How do they roll-over the amount of Wild Horse Advocates that exist today, and make the misinformation appear innocent, rather than toxic? History shows us time and again, and over decades, and even a couple of centuries now, that people in large groups, definitively, neither function well nor reason well, within the context of common sense.
Ultimately, we all have to decide, first, if we want taxpayer dollars to actually support this Genocide against the Wild Horses, and then to what other groups (we must also remain suspicious about all of this experimental situation, and will they pose a threat to what they conclude as unnecessary humans, afterward?) will they decide to develop Genocide against — and using our taxpayer dollars to do so. Does this sound extreme? History shows us the Native American’s, and what our government did to them, to be extreme, and yet . . .

Very good article. John Cox! Hopefully people will read these articles and learn what it is that they don’t know. They are being manipulated, the common people, and then there are the ones that know, who are outright lying by spreading their propaganda. Sharing.
April 26, 2022 at 4:05 pm
Absolute truth John! The genocide technique you describe is exactly like what Big Pharma does and man made Covid/ “ vaccine – the only difference being that humans, if they would actually think, have the power to resist! The innocent horses burros and other wild life cannot and if we don’t resist for them they are doomed! It is so true that people in large groups lose their ability to think! What a corrupt world, and all of this to make the few very wealthy even wastefully more wealthy.
