Just when you thought People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) couldn’t get any more crazy, they decide they would be doing our furry friends an extreme disservice if they didn’t make a few entries into the Newspeak dictionary.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals clearly had enough of PETA’s monkey business, when it ruled against the animal activists on April 23.
A recent official tweet from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is not an April Fools Day joke. In full context, it's not even funny, because it's part of a long campaign by an utterly unhinged mob to shut down entire industries. Specifically, that March 31 PETA tweet claims that milk is an awful thing because it "has long been a symbol used by white supremacists."
The deep thinkers at the animal-rights group PETA strike again with an ad comparing animals “born into the meat, egg, and dairy industries” to rape and sexual assault victims. PETA tweeted the ad on November 2 with the caption, “No mother should have to go through any of this.” The black-and-white video begins with distressed looking women recounting stories of what appear to be sexual assaults.
Baywatch star Pamela Anderson is part of the latest anti-salmon farming campaign with an organization helmed by a man who has argued that the global population should be reduced by several billion people. Anderson, already on the board of directors of the radical Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, partnered with them to investigate the supposedly secretive world of salmon farming and film a PSA about alleged health and environmental risks.
PETA is at it again, getting down and dirty with its activism.
In a “Behind the Leather” video, PETA showed customers shopping for leather products, only to find grisly insides. The anti-leather products stunt was an effort to raise awareness about the way exotic skin products are made in southeast Asia.
On Monday, both ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today hyped a supposed "controversy" between Sarah Palin and radical animal rights group PETA, after Palin shared a touching photo of her Down Syndrome son using his service dog as a step stool to reach the kitchen sink.
During a news brief on GMA, anchor Amy Robach announced: "Sarah Palin sparking new controversy, this time among animal lovers. Reaction has erupted on social media when Palin posted this photo of her 6-year-old son standing on top of their dog."
The Grinch stole Christmas, and liberals have been trying to steal Thanksgiving.
Liberals are always looking for a platform to push their economic policies and bash capitalism via the media. Thanksgiving provides an opportunity for them to do both. Leading up to Turkey Day, liberals have consistently discovered inventive avenues for attacking businesses and philosophies they don’t like while promoting their left-wing policies.
PETA activists are planning to protest a SeaWorld float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year by painting their naked bodies black and white to look like orcas (“killer whales”) according to a report by Policy Mic. The animal rights group also plans to protest the theme park’s use of animals in captivity by cramming a bunch of naked, painted people into a bathtub set outside Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square.
The stunt is supposed to protest orcas held in captivity and continue their demand that SeaWorld be excluded from the parade. PETA tried to get the park’s float banned last year as well but were similarly denied. Last year they pulled a similar stunt with a man confined in a small tank.
Earlier this week, Discovery Channel announced it would air a reality TV special December 7 called “Eaten Alive” in which filmmaker Paul Rosolie would let himself be swallowed by an anaconda, then make it out alive, without harm to him or the snake. Discovery Channel hoped the publicity stunt would boost slow Sunday night TV ratings.
Well, the ever-sensitive animal rights group PETA (“People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals”) didn’t like news that one bit. PETA released a statement condemning the stunt and urging Discovery Channel to drop the special.
Liberal comic Bill Maher appeared on Monday's The View and was touted by the hosts as the "kind of guest we like around here because he will tear into any hot topic and he does not hold back.” Unsurprisingly Maher praised the "fantastic" Obama and slammed the "racist" Tea Party.
The hosts tossed Maher questions about guns, Hillary Clinton, PETA, and President Obama’s job performance and he offered his typical left-wing rhetoric. Among other things Maher touted himself as more "empathetic” than Liam Neeson and agreed with Whoopi Goldberg that Democrats running from ObamaCare are "punks."
It's not hard to tell where the host of Real Time With Bill Maher stands on the issue of “animal rights.” As with most topics, the comedian hasn't held anything back since before 2003, when he received the Celebrity Animal Advocate of the Year Award at the Animal Rights National Conference in Los Angeles.
During the past week, however, the HBO host set his sights on two interesting targets: the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA -- which he said is a “wonderful cause” -- and actor Liam Neeson, who “should just shut up” about his support for the horse carriage business in New York City.
