WHY SO MANY PEOPLE HATE PETA

August 25, 2009

I love animals and most creatures except yellowjackets and insects that destroy my tomato plants.

I don’t like PETA.  I understand their desire for the humane treatment of animals.  It is laudable, but their approach is so negative, so misguided and over the top that their message gets lost in the turmoil they create.  In their desire to be noticed at all costs, they have turned off millions of people who support humane treatment of animal life but don’t want to be associated with PETA.

PETA INSANITYCandidly, why would any sane person want to be associated with a group that feels the best way to get people to loose weight is to ridecule them and call them names?

PETA is also incredibly insensitive to other peoples feelings and sensibilities.  They regularly trample on them (and good taste) with such insufferable, sanctimonious arrogance … one wants to scream, “Have you all lost your minds?”  Just say the group’s name and see how many people roll their eyes and hiss as they repeat it.

UNHAPPY MEAL

Their brand of extremist activism hurts other groups with legitimate righteous issues … say like green activists trying to reduce the  UNNECESSARY consumption of plastic.

Their latest fight against McDonalds is just another example of extremist behavior designed to catch media attention.  Some people believe that any media attention is better than no media attenion.  You know … just spell my name right!  It wasn’t that long ago when Britney Spears was shaving her head to get media attention.  How’d that work?

The worst part is the pay back.   The picture below says it all … PETA SUCKS … spelled out in rabbits.

PETA, you have finally done it. You have made me change my mind about something. Congratulations. However, it won’t be to your liking. I’m going out right now get some Kobe Steak for dinner wearing my endangered species ocelot fur coat and if any one of your mink-releasing vegan followers dares to as much as sneer in my direction I’m making a hat out of their bony ass.

I know it’s already been said, but this is disgusting. In so many ways.
Makes the t-shirt I saw recently even more funny and appropriate…”People Eating Tasty Animals”
———————
The whole thing just makes my ample body sigh. Clearly, PETA believes any attention – bad or good – helps their cause. They oflten fail to consider the negative outcome of such efforts. Campaigns like this one – and this one is a DOOZY – actually serve the omnivore argument better than any other.
As someone who never cooks meat at home and strives to be a vegetarian (mainly for ethical reasons), I have to go with Dabitch on this one. The whole silly mess makes me want a cheeseburger.
—————————————-
Dahlings,
After all of the nonsense about about that vile Cintra Wilson article, as I put it on my blog, I am beginning to suffer “outrage fatigue.” And as a luxuriously plus-sized omnivore, I intend to eat a sandwich made out of the nearest endangered species I can find.
—————————–

If I thought for one second that my kid chose to go vegetarian out of some sort of weird fear of being fat, I’d be shoving prime rib down her gullet faster than you could say “all things in moderation.”

Need I say more?  Actually there is one more thing.

Calling fish sea kittens won’t stop people from consuming this valuable protein any more than it will stop people from consuming beef by calling cattle land dolphins!

    Yeah, exactly.
    They are saying that PETA is going too far when they have a picture posted of dead rabbits spelling “PETA sucks”

    I understand the advocacy of PETA but I just wish they could be more sensitive with their actions and decisions.

      I wondered if I should allow this comment and finally decided it was better to show it than to delete it. Readers can make their own decision as to its merit.

      i ate my first born child... i see nothing wrong with picturing those animals as children, you just dont have the balls. with out hunters, rabbits and other hunted creatures would over populate, destroying the land… whats more valuable? land that can be lived on, or a few dead rabbits? there are millions of rabbits in the world. where do you think the term “breeding like rabbits” came from?

      u guys are full of crap. animals are for food. but that’s not the only thing that they are good for. does it hurt when u get a haircut? ofcorce it dosn’t. to sheep that’s what it feels like. when someone has a bird debeaked, its not cruel, its for the safty of the animals around them. its the same thing when a cow is dehorned. or when a cow is milked. think about it.

    The men who shot all the rabbits and lined up their bodies to make words is the best example I can think of to show the ignornace, the cowardice, and the pathetic little men who kill other living beings for fun. I don’t even have to make my point. These guys made it for me.
    Is it any wonder that the vast majority of people see hunting and killing animals for any reason as the barbaric and brutal activity that it is? In a few more years the hunters will be trying to recruit 4 year olds to kill animals because even grade school children want to grow up to be kind, good people, not disgusting murderers.
    I feel sorry for you but I feel more sorry for your victims.
    If you believe in God, try to imagine for a moment what merciful and loving Jesus thinks of you.
    Genesis: eat of the herbs and plants, for you, this shall be meat.
    I believe that most men who feel the need to kill the defenseless were beaten by their fathers. And their fathers were beaten by theri fathers. Time to break the cycle of violence. Time to grow up and be men.

    What the hell is wrong with people? Okay, eat meat, whatever, but why do people have to kill animals, seriously? I hàte it when people say oh, we need to eat something, we’ve always hunted and ate meat. Ok, well we should be better people! We’re not cavemen anymore, we should get past this and stop eating meat.

      Kayla:

      The truth is, whether you understand it or approve of it, homo sapiens, are meat eaters. There are parts of the country where people hunt because they need the food. That’s true in Alaska, in many parts of the West and the rural South, and elsewhere around the world. There are very few issues that are strictly black (bad guys eat meat) or white ( I don’t eat meat) … there are many gray areas to most of the social and environmental issues that plague us.

      I eat meat, chicken, fish, etc. but rely on it as a source of protein far less than I did in past. My hesitancy to ingest proteins of this type have more to do with issues of how the meat/chickens are raised & injected with chemicals, the waste produced that leaches into the soil and ground water, pollution in the oceans that pollute the fish we eat. Yes, I am also concerned about how these animals are killed. There are ethical ways to handle this … less horrific ways. On this we can agree.

      Might I also affirm, again, that when organizations like PETA resort to extremism in order to get their message across that they turn off millions of people who would find more sympathy with their cause if they presented their issues in a calm, realistic manner. Renaming fish sea kittens is dumb … childish. Frightening children who go to McDonald’s for a burger is maddening, destroying other people’s property because you don’t agree with their positions creates fury and push back. Insulting overweight people by calling them whales as a way to make them change their eating habits is rude, mean spirited, and counterproductive.

      Here’s another truth, you always get more with honey than vinegar. Extremism in the defense of anything … politics, religion, the environment, social activism, is still extremism.

    Ok so the only reason you people hate PETA is because they want to get people’s attention? All they do is say the truth and just because you can’t face the truth you have to hate them?

    That’s just retarded.

      I personally do not hate PETA, but some people do. What I, and millions of others like me, dislike are PETA’s methods … which are divisive, rude, and juvenile. They turn people off with their showboat insensitivity to the feelings of others. Referring to fat/overweight people as whales as a way to get them to loose weight or become vegetarians is cruel.

    I agree with Paige.. Its just that the way we kill these poor animals is so inhumane.. I understand that not everybody can become a vegetarian, it really isn’t easy. I just wish that we can find a better way to kill these animals without causing pain. But hunting I’m just not for at all.. I understand the whole Alaska part, but hunting as a sport is just terrible. I don’t try to change people, all I ask is that people become more aware of where the meat their eating came from and how it was killed.

    One thing that I’ve gotten used to is that some of my friends who are meat eaters tend to tell me how being a vegetarian is so unhealthy and that I’m not getting enough protein. I simply say that I feel great, I never get sick and my doctor says I’m healthy as can be. They just get stumped because they can’t think of another comeback. I’m not one of those vegetarians that preaches to random people about how good not eating meat is for them, I just want people to back off and let me do what I want you know. Anyway that’s all I’ve got to say. Everyones made very good points here and I respect that.
