We already gave Human Rights to subhuman apes such as blacks and browns, so why not extend the same courtesy to the hairier ones too?
An orangutan which spent 20 years in an Argentine zoo is being moved to a US animal sanctuary after being granted the same legal rights as humans.
Lawyers won a landmark appeal for Sandra in 2014, arguing she was being detained in Buenos Aires illegally.
The ruling found her to be Argentina’s first “nonhuman person, with the right to liberty”.
The 33-year-old arrived in Kansas on Friday and will undergo tests before moving to her new home in Florida.
Judge Elena Liberatori – who has a picture of Sandra in her office – told AP news agency she wanted her ruling to send a message: “That animals are sentient beings and that the first right they have is our obligation to respect them.”
You’ll never guess what Judge Elena Liberatori looks like.

Shocking, I know.
Sandra was born in an East German zoo and sold to Buenos Aires in 1995.
The orangutan spent much of her life in a solitary enclosure and regularly tried to avoid the public. She had a daughter in 1999, but the baby was taken away from her and sold to an animal park in China.
Her legal victory brought international fame to the orangutan, and set a precedent for apes to be legally deemed people rather than property.
We had to do this because it was The Right Thing to Do, and doing the right thing is just Who We Are — but I have to say, this may present some challenges.
Some scientists say that orangutans are the only apes “besides humans” to talk about the past, and recent research shows that they can control their voice in a similar way to humans.
It won’t be long until they learn the magic word.
It will be interesting to see if they’ll come up with their own degenerate version of English or if they’ll just adopt Ebonics.
Until this week – nearly five years later – Sandra remained at the site of the zoo, which closed in 2016 following reports of animal cruelty. The zoo is now being rebuilt as an “eco-park” with improved living standards for animals.
An Argentine court approved her transfer to Florida’s Center for Great Apes in 2017, though her journey was delayed by applications for US permits.
The 100-acre sanctuary is home to chimpanzees and orangutans which have been freed from circuses, labs, zoos and private collections. Michael Jackson’s former pet chimpanzee, Bubbles, is among several famous residents.
Wait wait wait wait. This is unacceptable!
Sandra the Orangutan has Human Rights and we’re putting her in a chimp ghetto?
What kind of Nazi behavior is this!?
We should be giving her human clothes, a computer, and teaching her how to use the Internet. We should be putting her through college and empowering her, not locking her away in some kind of concentration camp!
I stand firm against this blatant violation of Human Rights and I demand the immediate release of Sandra. She is to be given all the gibs that asylum seekers are getting and provided with clean housing in a white neighborhood while she waits for her American citizenship.
This is not negotiable.
