PETA's slogan is "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment."
Now I freely admit that I am all for rascally, farm, animals to romp around a sunny barnyard and spend what little time they have playing with their fuzzy and feathery friends.
But PETA crossed the line a few weeks ago when they likened the savage murder and subsequent beheading of a young man on a greyhound bus to the way that animals are processed..you can read about their strategic news release HERE.
How inf*ckingcredibly insensitive and stupid is that?
I would love to see how founder Ingrid Newkirk and her cohorts would react if they were to re-enter the Food Chain. I wonder if they would still have the warm fuzzies for large, ferocious, predatory, carnivores, if they were dropped off on the African Savannah..naked and unarmed.
I have no idea if these people have any idea what actually goes on 24/7 in the natural animal kingdom..do you? I imagine that while one Lion or Hyena is clamping down on their throat as the others start to disembowel and consume them, that they'd simply gasp for something politically correct to say like,
"oh that's OK, these animals are just ((gurgle)) doing what comes ((gurgle))naturally to them ((aaaack))."
I imagine that they idealistically regard Humans as natural Herbivores? If so, at what point did they abandon Science and decide that we ignore millions of years of biological evolution ...HEY wait a minute, since they seem to love animals more than people, maybe they think that it's OK for Humans to eat, wear, experiment on, and use other Humans for our entertainment?
It all sounds quite Lecterian.
My best guesstimate is that the secret objective of PETA is to return Mankind back to that Edenic pre-'Fall from Grace' period mentioned in the Book of Genesis. If you remember your Sunday School lessons you'll recall the before SIN (Boo-Hiss) entered the world, Adam & Eve and every last one of the other 'lower' animals, were just easy goin' Herbivores.
Aw schucks..I can still see that cute, little, Lamb curled up beside that big, ole, Lion.
Perhaps PETA is a secret, religious, organization hellbent on returning the world to the way that God HIMSELF had supposedly intended it to be?
I may have just uncovered an unforseen secret link between PETA and VEGGIE TALES.
Whatever their real goal is, the tall foreheads at PETA obviously prefer animals over people, and oddly enough, when it comes to Dinner, I do too.
