Despite all the lettuce bikinis and talk about renaming fish “sea kittens” to protect them from the insensitivity of speciesists, the last place an animal would want to find itself is in the clutches of PETA:
Animal rights group PETA may go to extreme lengths to save animals from the slaughterhouse but the Virginia-based organization’s animal shelter killed nearly 2,000 stray cats and dogs at its shelter in 2013.
The Center for Consumer Freedom released its annual review of PETA’s Norfolk shelter and it shows a surprising 82 percent euthanization rate.
Despite outcries from some fellow animal activists, PETA has declined to change its policies since 1998. Since that year, the shelter has put down over 31,000 animals…
According to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the vast majority of animals PETA takes in are killed within 24 hours. Heinrich Himmler would admire the efficiency.
Meanwhile, PETA has compared farming to the Holocaust. The liberal capacity for hypocrisy is boundless.
Not to worry; PETA is making it up to the animal world with this:
Wednesday, a member of PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, filed an application with [the Georgia Department of Transportation] to have a memorial placed at the Hall County site where a truck hauling live chickens overturned on Jan. 27.
The drivers of the chicken truck and the other vehicle involved were not seriously injured in the predawn crash on U.S. 129 near Gainesville, but “dozens” of the truck’s cargo were apparently not so fortunate, according to the local PETA member who filed the request for a “giant tombstone” to be erected in memory of the chickens.
By giant, they mean 10 feet high.
“We hope the tombstone will offer food for thought in the ‘Poultry Capital of the World’,” said PETA spokeswoman Shakira Croce.
The idea of course is to make us feel guilty about eating chicken. Apparently chickens rank higher in the caste system than the dogs and cats they subject to their four-legged final solution.
Our maybe it’s just the idea of chickens dying so that people can eat them that bothers PETA. Homo sapiens rank at the bottom of the caste system.
PETA activists are the quintessential progressives: posturing sanctimonious kooks who insist on bending the world to their schizophrenic will. If current political trends continue, they will have the leverage to force the next generation to subsist on soy paste, even while they exterminate dogs and cats by the thousands. Chickens will be liberated to flourish in the wilderness, so that once again the forests will resonate with the call of wild roosters as in the days of old (as imagined by moonbats).
