So you’re not mislead I do believe in the ethical treatment of animals, no doubt about it. What Im not behind is a group that uses gore, immoral treatment of human beings, religion, and targets large portions of their campaigns at children. (more, more) PETA lacks any kind of common sense, taste, or cultural conscious when it comes to advertising. For instance, previous campaigns have compaired canablist and serial killer Jeffery Dahmer with pig slaughtering, or equating the butchering of chickens to the Jewish Holocaust, and parading nude at the zoo in protest of animals kept in captivity.
We go out of our way to find everyone that had anything to do with the famous “Wardrobe Malfunction”, but PETA gets away with far more disgusting things on almost a daily basis. Whats worse yet is that PETA is constantly calling for the heads of those who kill or torture animals. But, where’s that blood thirst for human life when we find out that members of PETA have been charged with 22 counts of animal abuse and have recently euthanasied over 80 dogs in Ahoskie, North Carolina alone.
Salt Lake City has recently denied PETA the ability to post an anti-fishing bilboard. Kudoz to you SLC on telling the immoral minions of “animal rights” to get lost.
“If you wouldn’t do this to a dog, why do it to a fish?”
This certainly isn’t the first time PETA has attacked the sport fishing industry (more), and probably not the most vulgar either. How about a campaign of comic books that obviously target children, Daddy Kills Animals. Of course PETA is always quick to defend itself. “We would never use shock tactics with children; it wouldn’t be right.” However the truth is that not only are they targeting your children, they’re using them too.
Just so you remember, September 24th is “Fish Amnesty Day”, which also happens to be the day before my birthday. So please, take the kids fishing.
Update: Make that 25 charges of animal cruelty which includes 3 felony charges for obtaining animals under false pretenses. Apparently the cats that were given to PETA were to be adopted, but were instead killed immediately. PETA has only suspended one of the employees charged.
