    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 […]

    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 […]

    PETA Washes Its Hands of Reality (Again)

    Posted April 20, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Meat

    Thursday is Earth Day, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is using the opportunity to push its animal-rights agenda. Yesterday, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk penned an op-ed claiming that whenever we “consume meat, eggs or dairy foods, we contribute to ecological devastation.” (Not true.) And today in Birmingham, Alabama, scantily-dressed PETA fem-bots […]

    PETA Crushes Its Own Credibility

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

    The New York Daily News reported yesterday that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), always on the lookout for a media stunt, delivered a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture demanding the government refuse to renew the exhibitor license of the Ringling Bros. circus. Looks like the media whiz-kids at PETA screwed […]

In South Carolina, hunters are supporting a statewide ballot initiative to change the state Constitution and give hunters a permanent right to hunt. Says hunting enthusiast James Kennamer, “It will keep local entities from […]

    PETA (Still) Kills Animals. Lots of ‘Em.

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

    In 2009 People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) put a few more notches on its belt—2,301, to be exact. That’s how many cats and dogs met their demise at the hands of this radical animal rights group last year, according to PETA’s own “Animal Record” filings with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and […]

    PETA Behaving Badly

    Posted February 4, 2010 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Meat

    Another organization has caved to PETA pressure because of a mistaken belief that the radical group really cares about animals. The Neumann University Alumni Association says it will stop distributing discounted tickets to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus in response to PETA’s latest protest. The alumni association was offering discounted admission to […]
