What the makers of the movie don’t want you to see.
Since we launched Awesome Ocean, we have had a number of occasions to write about the mockumentary called Blackfish. We have also been fortunate enough to have others weigh in on the film here as well, including guest editorials from Bridgette Pirtle and Mark Simmons. If you’re not immediately familiar with those names – they were both a part of the making of the film but have since come forward to tell the truth about the agendas and lies behind it.
The short version is that Blackfish as a “documentary” is a lie pushed upon the unsuspecting public by the most extreme animal right activists like PETA and the Humane Society of the United States. It’s goal is to prey upon your emotions and to use them to turn you into a pawn for their ends.
We’d like for you to see the other side. So, take a few minutes and check out a few of the articles we’ve published about the topic. Most of us want to have the facts before making a decision.
When it comes to my former association with Blackfish, the mantra, “Everything happens for a reason,” hasnʼt always assuaged my disappointments of becoming connected to such an immensely misleading exploitation of the lives of killer whales and their trainers at SeaWorld.
It’s amazing that good people can be so easily misled by cheap lies and emotionally driven narrative. Such as it is with the movie, “Blackfish”. When it comes to the SeaWorld orca debate, Americans need to remember the principles this country was founded on and let the facts speak for themselves.
When the team here at Awesome Ocean came across an interview between Kaylin Williams, a guest writer for the blog Central Florida Top5, and Bridgette Pirtle, former SeaWorld San Antonio killer whale trainer, we knew we stumbled upon some of those lost facts.
The film Blackfish has created an unprecedented army of armchair activists worldwide. Where are these strong opinions being applied? The Internet. What are they doing to help animals in need? Nothing. The true injustice is in the viral spread of misinformation.
As someone who’s worked with whales and dolphins for nearly three decades, I can no longer sit on the sidelines while these groups hijack the conversation and continue to mislead the public.
