Here are a few examples of PETA’s hypocritical celebs: Pamela Anderson auctioned off her Dodge Viper to benefit PETA which had a “luxurious leather interior”. Just weeks after launching an anti-leather campaign for PETA, Jenna Jameson was filmed eating oysters, fishing, and wearing leather. http://petakillsanimals.com/article_detail.cfm?article=134
From the mouth of PETA’s president: “Even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we would be against it.” PETA constantly attacks foundations like the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, because they support animal-based research aimed to find cures. http://www.targetofopportunity.com/peta.htm
Bill Maher’s compassionate quote takes the cake: “To those people who say, `My father’s alive because of animal experimentation, ‘ I say `Yeah, well, good for you. This dog died so your father could live.’ Sorry, but I’m just not behind that kind of trade off.” http://www.freewebs.com/animalrightsandyou/quotesfromarleaders.htm
PETA has given over $150,000 to activists like the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front. Since 1996 the two groups are responsible for causing more than $43 million in damages and ALF even boasted that the two groups committed “100 illegal direct actions” -blowing up SUVs, destroying the brakes on seafood delivery trucks and planting bombs in restaurants. http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=955&pst=176535
And my favorite: PETA’s 2010 “Animal Record” report filed with the Virginia Dept of Agriculture and Consumer Services, shows that PETA employees killed 94 percent of the dogs and cats in their care last year. Yep, that’s right, PETA kills puppies and kitties! http://www.petakillsanimals.com/
PETA hates hunters, but they kill without utilizing their animals; we hunters are far more for the ethical treatment of animals than they’ll ever be. What are your thoughts on PETA?
