PETA Tries to Make Nice with Congress
We received notice today that PETA will be handing out awards on Thursday night in advance of the Presidential Inauguration. Awardees include Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), Dina Titus (D-Nev.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) and Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.).
We’re wondering: How much does the party cost—it’s at the ritzy Willard hotel in D.C.—and how many animals could that money have saved from death at PETA’s own hands? Since 1998 PETA has killed 35,000 animals at its headquarters, while wasting money on countless press stunts.
The event is being hosted by longtime PETA spokes-bimbo Pamela Anderson and political strategist Mary Matalin. Curiously, Matalin is married to political consultant James Carville—reportedly a big fan of The Palm, a high-end steakhouse. In fact, Carville said last year that he and his wife re-opened the Caribbean Room at the Pontchartrain Hotel in New Orleans. The menu there includes animal products in every dish—including foie gras, a big PETA no-no.
Do you want Members of Congress taking legislative tips from PETA—a group so crazy that its president calls pet ownership an “abysmal situation”? Do these legislators endorse PETA’s vision of killing healthy, adoptable animals and banning everything from bacon cheeseburgers to zoos and aquariums?
Write them on their Facebook walls and ask:
And, please do spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. If there’s one thing most Americans on both sides of the aisle can agree on, it’s that if PETA makes policy, the country is truly going to the dogs.
