Loony Lefty of the Week: Steven Wise


May 28, 2015

Our loony lefty of the week this week is Steven Wise, an attorney with the extremist group the Nonhuman Rights Project who has gone to court in New York arguing that two chimpanzees at a state university should be accorded human rights.

He argues having the chimps' confinement amounts to slavery and is seeking a Writ of Habeas Corpus asking for an end to their captivity.

One could argue that chimps don't deserve human rights because their intelligence level is sub-human, but then again the actions of the primates' legal counsel leave him open to the same potential charge.

Hopefully the judge not only rules against this insane petition, but sanctions Mr. Wise for wasting the court's time and the taxpayers' money on a frivolous case.
