    A PETA Chef, Reinvented

    Posted June 23, 2011 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    Today the Los Angeles Times published a profile of Tal Ronnen, the “vegan rock-star chef” who once persuaded Oprah to try a “vegan cleanse” for 21 days. (She eventually bailed on the experiment, explaining: “After four days everybody's like ‘How do you feel? How do you feel?’ I feel like I want a cheese sandwich. […]

    Dr. Oz: Animal Rights Activist?

    Posted April 28, 2011 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, Big Fat Lies, Celebrities, Food Police, Food Scares, From CCF, Meat, Seafood

    Daytime television’s self-promoting “YOU Doc” Dr. Mehmet Oz entertained us Wednesday with his assault on meat and dairy, offering up his talk show's couch to a vegan activist group that twists medical research to claim non-tofu proteins come with major health risks. In typical Oz fashion, he promised to tell his audience what they “need […]

    Yes, PETA Still Kills Animals

    Posted March 18, 2011 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, Big Fat Lies, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) typically has a knack for making ugly things sexy (and vice-versa). Ironically, the radical animal rights group still hasn’t figured out a way to spin the fact that its own animal shelter has euthanized more than 25,000 homeless pets since 1998—so PETA prefers to keep it quiet.

    Phony Physicians Committee Earns Itself Free Press (But not a Free Pass)

    Posted December 16, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    Here we go again. The ridiculously misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM is a PETA front-group and a “physicians committee” in name only) has released another red-meat advertisement that bought it a juicy and succulent round of controversy. (That's not offensive, is it?) It seems Houston television stations haven't taken too kindly to the […]

    Happy Birthday, PETA!

    Posted September 24, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals celebrates its 30th anniversary tomorrow, so we thought this would be a great time to share our thoughts on PETA’s continuing relevance:

    PETA Is Still Meatless, Clueless

    Posted September 13, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Meat

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) vice president Bruce Friedrich is well known for his advocacy of property destruction in order to bring about “animal liberation.” But we always assumed that he would have picked up a basic foundation in barnyard facts during his 14-year career at the animal rights group. Maybe we […]

    Darwin and Chicken Wings

    Posted August 6, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Meat

    As we saw on Wednesday, there’s plenty of anti-meat “news” flying around out there in desperate need of context. Thankfully, today we came across a welcome reprieve from the typical drumbeat that feeds the “go veg” propagandists at animal rights groups. What’s the big news? NPR reports that eating meat is what allowed early humans […]

    East Meets West in PETA Gaffes

    Posted July 26, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Meat

    Many Americans are familiar with the various boundary-crossing media stunts of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which often involve women in states of undress or animal-rights shock tactics aimed at children. So when we heard that PETA had decided to export its infamous stunts to the Middle East, we wondered what would go […]

    Milk Malice Too Extreme for Anti-Milk Extremist

    Posted July 12, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Livestock

    In today’s Los Angeles Times, guest contributor Chris Woolston examines the science behind dietary milk recommendations. The U.S. Department of Agriculture advises drinking three glasses per day; a Harvard scientist recommends one or two. And in the moo-juice abstinence corner, Woolston quotes the radicals at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) as the animal […]

    Resolved: Shareholders Reject PETA Agenda

    Posted May 24, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The Associated Press reports today (as though it were “news”) on an old tactic used by the animal rights extremists at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). In addition to sending half-nude performers to “shower” with an anti-meat message, PETA is trying a more fully clothed tactic: buying stock in meat and restaurant […]
