    PETA Kills Animals, So Of Course It Accepts Celebrity Hypocrisy

    Posted January 9, 2013 at 4:10 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) thinks animals are “people,” and therefore the group harasses people who eat and wear animal products and those who conduct lifesaving medical research on animals. But PETA has no qualms killing roughly 2,000 dogs and cats every year, even those that its staff classifies as “adorable” and “perfect,” as our Senior Research Analyst reminded […]

    PETA Kills “People”

    Posted December 11, 2012 at 2:25 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    When you’re an animal rights activist, you spend considerable time equating some odd animals with people. Many years ago, a Los Angeles Times reporter asked People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) what the group had to say about ant farms. The answer was “Ants are sentient beings, like we are.” Ants’ tastier fellow arthropods, lobsters, even had a PETA […]

    Animal-Rights War on Circuses Heads to Los Angeles

    Animal rights activists won’t be satisfied just to make everybody eat vegan food in all of its hexane-extracted soy powder glory. Their ideology holds, in the words of PETA cofounder and President Ingrid Newkirk, “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy,” so it shouldn’t surprise anybody that PETA sued Sea World claiming that whales are […]

    PETA Fires Ideological Birdshot at Kids over Thanksgiving

    Posted November 15, 2012 at 3:10 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Meat

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), last seen receiving a rebuke from the European Court of Human Rights for trying to bring its genocide-trivializing “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign to Germany, has a sordid history of propagandizing children and young people. In prior campaigns, PETA has called on teenagers to tear down school […]

    Disgusting PETA Campaign Bench-Slapped in Europe

    Posted November 8, 2012 at 2:48 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Livestock, Meat

    One of the most repulsive examples of the shameful behavior of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is its “Holocaust on your plate” campaign that compares livestock farming with one of the worst genocides in human history. It’s something when that’s only “one of” the repulsive examples; however, PETA’s record of killing over […]

    This Week in Food Freedom: PETA Jumps the Sea Kitten, Good News in California, and More

    Posted November 2, 2012 at 4:43 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Big Fat Lies, Fat Taxes, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) president Ingrid Newkirk has called her organization “complete press sluts,” and it still rings true. The Orange County Register reports that the vegan group which once gave grants to an arsonist wants to place a memorial at the spot where a truck carrying fish — er, “sea kittens” […]

    PETA Meets Two Judges, Loses Two Cases

    Posted September 5, 2012 at 4:08 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Dairy, From CCF, Meat, Trial Lawyers

    One of the goals of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is to grant animals the same legal rights as people, but this foolish quest suffered double setbacks this week. PETA is no stranger to losing in the courtroom—like its frivolous case claiming that Sea World’s performing whales were slaves or a not-at-all-frivolous […]

    Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance with PETA

    Posted August 14, 2012 at 1:01 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has been playing love games with celebrity activists for quite some time. While some have been diehard extremists for the wacky cause, others have not accommodated PETA’s demands. Now the animal rights (not animal welfare) folks are calling music artist Lady Gaga a Judas for allegedly being as hypocritical as they are. After once hailing her as a hero after she […]

    At Least PETA Can’t “Ethically Treat” Homeless People Like It Does Homeless Pets

    Posted July 17, 2012 at 4:13 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    San Francisco has problems both with panhandlers and with preparing homeless pets for adoption. Seeing an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, the city is testing a pilot program to habituate homeless pets in city homeless shelters, offering the people living there companionship and a $75 weekly stipend to nix panhandling. Take a guess which multi-million dollar […]

    Killer New Stats on PETA Highlighted with Sunset Strip and Times Square Billboards

    Posted July 11, 2012 at 2:42 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    Another year has gone by and more than 1,900 cats and dogs have once again been killed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The group has killed over 27,000 pets since 1998. The dirty secret of a group that might better be called “People Eradicating Thousands of Animals” is now public knowledge, but we’re making sure people don’t forget PETA’s hypocrisy. We’ve […]
