Letter about Trout Unlimited...

To the Editor,

The local chapter of Trout Unlimited should be congratulated for securing a major grant for stream rehabilitation and improvement on the South Branch of the Root River. However, the local chapter may be surprised to learn that the policies supported by Trout Unlimited’s national headquarters often stand in direct opposition of what is actually in the best interest of sportsmen.

Take for example, the EPA’s recently proposed expansion of the Clean Water Act. There seems to be an endless array of groups lining up against the EPA’s water power-grab “from agriculture to contracting to golf” but strangely, a handful of groups that allege to represent sportsmen have vocally supported it, such as Trout Unlimited. But one only needs to follow the money: These groups may claim to be conservationists dedicated to preserving hunting or angling, but their funding indicates that they are in fact shepherding a left-wing environmentalist agenda under purportedly moderate colors.

For Trout Unlimited, members of the national office’s board of directors include a former Democratic congressman and a former aide to Nevada Democratic Sen. Harry Reid. But a closer tie to radical environmentalism comes in a green hue the color of money. TU receives millions from environmentalist foundations, including some from San Francisco. Since 2008, the group has received major grants from the Hewlett Foundation, the Packard Foundation, and the Wyss Foundation.

TU and its fellow green decoys attempt to hide their foundation funders agendas behind moderate camouflage. Don’t fall for the trap.

To the Editor, Mr. Grehl, I respect your right to your opinion. However, you apparently missed the whole point of my comments. I certainly don’t loathe the Democratic Party or their agenda. However, I do loathe the inability of both parties to co .....
