    “Broadway Joe” Ticks Off PETA

    Posted February 4, 2014 at 2:32 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    Joe Namath, the New York Jets legend, conducted the coin toss to begin Super Bowl XLVIII while wearing a fur overcoat. Namath has a flamboyant reputation, and many observers found the coat well within the Hall of Fame quarterback’s larger-than-life persona. Of course, the humorless animal-liberationist scolds at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals […]

    This Thanksgiving Activists Say Please Pass the Politics

    Posted November 27, 2013 at 4:36 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Biotechnology, Food Police, From CCF, Meat

    A big story this Thanksgiving is the invasion of the political into every nook and cranny of American family life. National organizations promoting healthcare reform and gun control have distributed talking points to their supporters to make the potentially enjoyable mealtime conversation more contentious and political. In turning Turkey Day into Politics Day, these groups […]

    “Applause” to Star’s Stand Against PETA

    Posted November 14, 2013 at 10:27 am in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    Perhaps unsurprisingly for a pop star who once wore a dress made of preserved meats, Lady Gaga has had a tiff with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). But unlike some celebrities who capitulate to the world’s most notorious animal liberation group, Gaga has taken the organization to task for its awful record. […]

    University of Wisconsin Blasts PETA

    Posted October 9, 2013 at 3:05 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    Recently, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has waged an all-out assault on the University of Wisconsin (UW) complete with a robocall by celebrity supporter Bill Maher. PETA is trying to intimidate UW into abandoning research on how hearing works — and how deafness might be cured — using feline models. PETA is […]

    PETA Putting Vegan Theater before Homeless Pets

    Posted October 7, 2013 at 12:14 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Livestock, Meat

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) runs an animal shelter out of its Virginia headquarters, but the poor dogs and cats that end up there probably would rather go just about anywhere else. According to records on file with the Commonwealth of Virginia, nearly 90 percent of the pets unfortunate enough to end […]

    An Unlikely Source Berates PETA’s Tactics

    Posted September 9, 2013 at 10:40 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    We’ve been writing for a while now about the juvenile PR tactics PETA employs to try and get attention. Whether it be equating the death of animals for consumption to the Holocaust, likening performance whales to slaves, or, more recently, claiming that pregnant mothers who eat Buffalo wings doom their sons to smaller penises (no joke), these dog killers are no strangers to […]

    A Fiery Passion for Animals

    Posted August 13, 2013 at 8:25 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, The Green Fringe, Violence

    From a Molotov cocktail attack on a police cruiser to vandalism at a gourmet taco restaurant, animal liberation terrorists are still active across North America. It’s in the shadow of these and other recent illegal acts that the American Bar Association will vote on a misguided and reckless push to roll back anti-animal terrorism laws. […]

    Pet Killers Can’t Even Name Their Own Meatless Kind Correctly

    Posted July 29, 2013 at 4:05 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Dairy, From CCF, Livestock, Meat

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) — last seen killing nearly 90 percent of the dogs and cats in its care last year — likes to trot out celebrities who have supposedly given up meat, dairy, and eggs and “gone veg” to make the inaccurate claim that all the “cool kids” are PETA […]

    PETA Loses Request for Chicken Memorial

    Posted July 25, 2013 at 8:55 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Other

    The City of Salem, Oregon has denied People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) request to erect a statue in honor of approximately 5,400 of chickens killed, wounded, distressed or missing in action from a truck crash earlier this month. The statue, designed by cartoonist Harry Bliss, stands over five feet tall and depicts a bloodied chicken on crutches. It’s a pointless stunt designed […]

    PETA’s Sinking Ship

    Posted July 15, 2013 at 4:28 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    As we wrote last week, PETA’s long-standing practice of euthanizing over 90 percent of the dogs and cats in its pet shelters has garnered attention from the New York Times. Apparently, we’re not the only ones who picked up on this coverage, as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also editorialized today on the hypocritical position in which PETA has placed itself […]
