The really active activists

Well, this is actually a very recent discovery of mine which only adds to the hate which I have for all of these hippies (and I use the term loosely. from now on, I will refer to hippies as all those activists who act as christian crusaders). I never was one to love animals. I have a "leave me alone, I leave you alone" relationship with most of them. My hate for PETA is not new. Any group that tosses paint on your property, even if it is real fur, are vandals. Any group which uses images of tortured animals in order to get an 8 figure (and I'm talking 30 mil $ budget) out of donations to fight said animal torturers, is not better than the animal torturers themselves.

PETA leadership had the gull to outlaw publishing of animal cruelty. The law passed, but if you go to their website, you will see that 65% (estimated figure of mine) is of animals being tortured. Hello? Hypocrisy anyone? So which is it. People who post this kind of thing for information are going against the law, but it is okay for you assholes? Sure ... it seems so.

I will be moving on to the thing that really really pissed me off. Their newest campaign. "Save the sea kittens. " I shit you not. What the fuck is a sea kitten. Well according to the PETA site link, this is it.

"People don't seem to like fish. They're slithery and slimy, and they have eyes on either side of their pointy little heads—which is weird, to say the least. Plus, the small ones nibble at your feet when you're swimming, and the big ones—well, the big ones will bite your face off if Jaws is anything to go by.

Of course, if you look at it another way, what all this really means is that fish need to fire their PR guy—stat. Whoever was in charge of creating a positive image for fish needs to go right back to working on the Britney Spears account and leave our scaly little friends alone. You've done enough damage, buddy. We've got it from here. And we're going to start by retiring the old name for good. When your name can also be used as a verb that means driving a hook through your head, it's time for a serious image makeover. And who could possibly want to put a hook through a sea kitten?" ~ http://www.peta.org/

Talk about fucked up people. Sea kittens? Please. My brain hurts. So, aside from saying that we are not allowed to eat normal meat, now fish is out of order. Next thing you know, plants will become earth puppies. What is the human race to do? Eat dirt? We're not maggots. We can't survive on that. Ranting aside. We have been eating meat since the dawn of time. Why is it that when a human (which is an omnivore) eats a meat product is bad, but when a cheetah eats an antelope it's natural. Let me inform you of something. Human dental structure is the way it is because it is meant to eat both meat and grass (as in vegetables and stuff). So why go against our nature. If you want to be a grass eating, grass smoking hippie, please, by all fucking means, go right ahead. Jump off a cliff for all I care. But when you come to impose in my lifestyle, it becomes a problem. We enjoy our carnivore pizza, our carnivore traditional food, our carnivore junk food. We're not herbivores. So leave us alone. Please.

If what I said until now isn't enough, I'm going to present the last twist of the story. PETA has centers for animal care. So does the US government. The difference. The US government funded animal care shelters run on shoestring funding. PETA has a yearly budget of over 30 mil $ from donations. The other difference is that PETA KILLED 90% of the animals they took in care.

"As Americans learn more about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and its eccentric founder, Hollywood stars should know the whole story. Despite the well-known animal rights group's $30 million budget, it spends very little actually caring for adoptable animals. Instead, it kills them. By the thousands.

Government records show that between 1998 and 2005, PETA killed more than 14,000 dogs and cats at its Virginia headquarters. (The group refuses to release its 2006 numbers.) In 2005, PETA killed 90 percent of the pets in its care. Some were thrown in trash dumpsters. Most were incinerated. PETA's donors footed the bill." ~ http://petakillsanimals.com/

So, here is the site where you can find out more. Make up your own mind about these people before you go on and doing volunteer work for either group.

  1. Animal rights groups, and their donators*spelling* have always occupied a moral grey area in my mind.

    Their cause is something i agree with: animals (livestock in particular) do need protection from capitalistic companies who's sole interest is their share prices and pets need protecting sadistic pet owners.

    however most of these charities methods are disturbing...

    i think the best example of an animal charity is the RSPCA in Britain. Their primary goals lie in rescuing animals from neglective pet owners not in bullshit animal politics


    also anyone who donated to those animal trusts when actual people are starving to death or dieing of a preventable illness is sick in the head

  2. I can't stop imagining how an animal-protecting association would look in 'our-God-blessed-land'of corruption: with proper publicity campaigns, there would be funding, but it wouldn't go to where it is needed( peasants leaving their cows and horses on the highway because they don't have food supplies for the winter; the Kruger-peasant cutting his horse with a chainsaw and not to mention that December never starts without the 'how to kill the pig for X-mas' debate); instead the money would peacefully go the big, warm pockets of those whom we formally call our political leaders.

  3. Well, a human eating meat would be considered just as natural as a cheetah hunting if humans wouldn't hunt and kill more than they can eat. Thousands of stuff made out of meat rotting on supermarket's shelves is not my idea of fair. But that's just me.
    And let's not forget that we drove to extinction a lot of species. This whole world we are livin' in has a very fragile equilibrium. We mess with that, we might become extinct as well...or not end up very happy, anyway.
    Even if some activist groups are not exactly what they say they are, so what? are we any better when it comes to people? I've heard of a lot of "groups" raising funds for those in need and instead providing a holiday for themselves.

  4. @ Anonim #2. Well, I'm not having a go at the endangered species groups in general. They at least do something. I'm having a go at these self righteous numskulls who believe humanity will be better if we stop eating meat. And I'm just assuming that. I don't think they really care about humanity. All they care about is saving the Sea Kittens, so they can kill cats and dogs by the thousands.

    You say, "Are we better for raising funds for humans". Probably not. But at least these groups have the decency to be sneaky privately, not go around protesting the cruelty against animals by throwing paint on furs, protesting nude on the streets or making a scene in an expensive restaurant cause they have meat on the menu. And they don't go killing their humans instead of finding homes for them, or taking care of them with their 8 figure budget like PETA does.
