10 Ridiculously Stupid PETA Campaigns

by Eric Conn   |  April 11th, 2013 7

Although they supposedly exist to promote the ethical treatment of animals, anyone who’s got a pulse and a brain knows PETA is a stark raving mad organization fully engrossed with getting their name in the news by any means necessary. In fact, their shock-and-awe tactics are usually so outrageous and despicable that any message about the ethical treatment of animals is destroyed.

It didn’t help when news outlets like the Huffington Post busted the supposed animal rights champion for euthanizing 96 percent of all the animals they take in—they have killed almost 30,000 cats, dogs and other domestic animals in the last decade, with statistics from the Virginia Department for Agriculture and Consumer Services to back it up. With a record like that, it’s pretty laughable to consider PETA a legitimate lobbying organization.

Most recently, PETA bull rushed its way into headlines by declaring its interest in pursuing drones to stalk hunters in the field, saying it will have “impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves.” It apparently wants to monitor “those who are out in the woods with death on their minds.” According to a statement released by PETA president Ingrid Newkirk, “Slob hunters may need to rethink the idea that they can get away with murder, alone out there in the woods with no one watching.”

Before that, PETA campaigned against Mario and Pokemon for their evil turtle smashing video games, sued SeaWorld on behalf of several “slaves” (i.e. killer whales) and started their own XXX porn site (no, we didn’t make that one up). PETA is also infamous for its use of lewd public displays of sadomasochism, throwing blood on people wearing fur or showing up nude to a host of public events. We’ve cataloged their obscenity with our 10 ridiculously stupid PETA campaigns, giving you one more reason to toss PETA out like the decades old trash it is.

    The most diqusting thing about PETA is that they slaughter thousands of pets every year right out of thier headquarters. Almost all pets given to them to find homes are imediatly terminated. They even have killing vans that drive around pick up strays and terminate them.

    These are almost as stupid as all the rationalizations I hear trophy hunters make about their disgusting sport. Almost.

    The thing that irritates me the most about Peta (and other extremist groups, like “Sharkonline”), and is most likely DETRIMENTAL to animals, is that these groups have NO UNDERSTANDING of animal biology, animal behavior, animal psychology, or animal husbandry, yet they have the audacity to judge those of us to live and work around animals everyday, AND they try to tell us how we should handle our animals. I live on a working ranch, where we raise pork and grass-fed beef, and where we own, ride and LOVE, many horses. Ranching and rodeo people generally have multiple generations worth of horsemanship knowledge, yet the campaigns of Peta and other such organizations are convincing the masses that we are a bunch of ignorants who whip and beat our horses. This is just NOT TRUE!! I’ve invited many of these people to come out to our ranch, meet the horses, meet true rodeo families, meet the bucking stock contractors, and see where bucking stock reside for 90% of their lives (in green pastures) and the like, but not surprisingly, they just respond with “all of you rodeo people are disgusting monsters.” They spew judgement on people without any true knowledge about them…a DANGEROUS thing to do, leading to bigotry and prejudice!
