Video: “Tom Cruise” salutes PETA

posted at 6:40 pm on February 26, 2009 by Allahpundit

Another good one from Steven Crowder, taking a video break from dodging fatwas for his Mohammed spoof. Starts slow but stick with it. Exit question: That’s not really the meat shake he’s drinking at the end, is it?

PETA embarrasses even those of us who support animal rights. Like Jon Stewart said about MoveOn.org: “Ten years of embarrassing even those who agree with us.”

amerpundit on February 26, 2009 at 6:46 PM

LOL,.. love that guy!!

christene on February 26, 2009 at 6:51 PM

That meat shake actually sounds good. I’m thinking venison smoothie.

As for meat week? Maybe after lent.

warden on February 26, 2009 at 6:53 PM

Makes me long for the days when all we got as the Sexpert.

aquaviva on February 26, 2009 at 6:53 PM

Bad time to have meat week. I’m doing my penance for Lent. But I stand with ya Steven!

jencab on February 26, 2009 at 6:58 PM

I belong to PETA: PEOPLE FOR THE EATING OF TASTY ANIMALS;
And I like to hunt and shoot my own. What is more American than that?
I must confess; I don’t eat two legged animals; I’m sure they’d taste like Democrats. (Chickens are two legged animals).

Cybergeezer on February 26, 2009 at 7:03 PM

Thanks, Allah! Great video.

flyfisher on February 26, 2009 at 7:04 PM

I’m not a cannibal, but if I was I would definitely start with eating PETA members. And if these people are going to be consistent you’d think they’d happily volunteer to be part of my dinner (so long as I didn’t do a surf-n-turf).

You might want to begin elsewhere given how emaciated the average PETA member is.

Dead Hand Control on February 26, 2009 at 7:17 PM

Tom Cruise keeps a collective meat journal.

Jim Treacher on February 26, 2009 at 7:17 PM

Love that guy too. Maybe a moose shake. We went to a moose-e-que in Chatauqua (sp?) and moose isn’t too bad bbque’d and that’s saying alot because eastern NC has the best bbq in the land.

I know this is a girlie girl reaction but ever since hearing about Tom munching on the placenta when his wife gave birth, I was so repulsed I can’t even look at him in reruns of his movies.

kooziegirl on February 26, 2009 at 7:21 PM

This guy is pretty frakkin’ funny.

It’s made all the more better that he has a good point to make.

Yakko77 on February 26, 2009 at 7:35 PM

Are Steven and HotAir.com now cross-promoting are something? I noticed he put HotAir at the end of the video.

“Better than Zo.”
“Racist!”
“OK, he’s not.”

Yes, especially for a Canadian.

PeTA is a fundraising operation disguised as a political cause. All of their stunts are geared to separating little old ladies from their Social Security checks. None of the money actually goes toward helping animals… None of it.

gridlock2 on February 26, 2009 at 7:45 PM

Not bad, but I was monstrously disappointed. I was hoping/expecting the actor who did the Tom Cruise/Scientology spoof. That guy was genius.

That was awesome, but Lenten Season is not a good time to go on a meat-bender.

OmahaConservative on February 26, 2009 at 7:53 PM

If the Good Lord didn’t want us to eat animals — he wouldn’t have made them so tasty.

skree on February 26, 2009 at 7:55 PM

I drive by the PeTA building on a regular basis – they’re in downtown Norfolk, VA of all places. Local morning drive time radio hosts Tommy and Rumble used to have a fishing tournament in the channel next to the PeTA building every year.

RedbonePro on February 26, 2009 at 8:18 PM

But if I can’t eat meat, how am I supposed to stop Global Warming ™ Man made climate change, by eating all the baby cows? MMMMMMM Veal.

Meat week is tough during lent. Give me 40 days and I will be ready to have meat month.

cobrakai99 on February 26, 2009 at 8:34 PM

I see that PETA is once again the whipping boy on hotair when there are 1000 other groups, groups that actually hate America, that could be poked in the eye much better. Still, it’s nice red meat for the rednecks.

keep the change on February 26, 2009 at 8:42 PM

I like meat. I eat it all the time. Meat is very versatile.

You can barbecue it,
boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it.

There’s meat kabobs, meat creole,

meat gumbo, pan fried,
deep fried, stir fried.

There’s pineapple meat
and lemon meat, coconut meat,

pepper meat,
meat soup, meat stew,

meat salad, meat in potatoes,
meat burger, meat sandwich.

That’s about it.

P.S. Again I say PETA is one of the reasons I recently stopped being a vegetarian.

“Keep the change”, what say you?

Aren’t you kind of making the point for us. Why are they going after pampered pets when they should be worried about how our military personnel are treated. Maybe we should start calling our troops “camo kittens”; then they’d see some respect from the left.

Laura in Maryland on February 26, 2009 at 10:33 PM

I think it’s automated ad software. Apparently they’ve programmed it to pop up on any youtube video with the keyword PeTA. I guess there is a correlation between women interested in supporting PeTA and women that are attracted effeminate men. Makes sense. I also noticed muslim dating ads on his koran video.

In the ’90s, when the Web was just getting underway, I was teaching the use of Netscape to the user community at the City and County of San Francisco, and spending nights and weekends surfing like mad to see what this was all about. One of the first things I found was that a guy had beaten the animal rights idiots to the punch by getting a domain name registration for People Eating Tasty Animals (dot org).

If you ever wonder who the terminally self-righteous really are, just take a gander at some of the email that he got from the true believers:

Back in the seventies I remember that Jack in the Box had a new sandwich using pita bread and that their slogan was “Eat-a-Pita.” I remember my mom saying to my dad that the slogan sounded vaugely obscene and seeing them grin at each other. Back then, I didn’t know what they were grinning at each other about and I wish I didn’t now. (EWWWW!!!)

Sometimes having a good memory is not so good.

Delivery reminds me of the New York Times technology reporter, David Pogue, and the videos he does on different gadgets.

(And the HotAir.com logo at the end of the video? Stealth self-promotion?)

Kaptain Amerika on February 26, 2009 at 10:48 PM

Very good question. Inquiring minds want to know.

Frankly, forming some kind of relationship between Crowder (and/or Zo) and HotAir would be marketing genius. That sort of thing is the only element missing here; combine the contributions of Ed, AP, and someone like Zo/Crowder … and you’d have a perfect combo.

Plus, it’d be nice to see you get back to regular videos of some kind or another.
