The PETA files: At least now they’re picking on someone who can take it

posted at 2:40 pm on November 18, 2011 by Tina Korbe

OK, I know it’s a little shallow of me to keep picking on PETA, given their meager and waning credibility as is, but they make it so easy. As a part of their anti-fur campaign, the group has launched a series of billboard ads against a gal very much accustomed to the limelight: Kim Kardashian.

The reality star has been known to sport fox fur, so PETA has put out this ad:

It’s sweet, really. I see those baby foxes and I wish Kim wouldn’t wear fur. But, then, I wish she wouldn’t do a lot of the things she does, like — oh, I don’t know — make a mockery of marriage. Where are the ads against that?

That’s the thing about PETA, really: Nobody wants animals to be treated cruelly (although I’d say PETA’s definition of cruelty and the average person’s definition of cruelty might not always be the same) — but PETA’s so completely absent from more important fights. As I tweeted recently, where, for example, is PETA in the battle for unborn baby humans?

Kim, that fur is unnecessary. Please remove it. So is your dress. That needs to go also. And don’t forget the undergarments. No need for those either. There, that should satisfy PETA(along with a bunch of other people).

Rainsford on November 18, 2011 at 2:51 PM

What gets me about their logic is that in most cases, these animals were bred for their fur. If it were not for the fur industry their great grandparents would be dead on the side of the road and they would not have been born.

It is just like Buffalo. People breed buffalo for their meat. A large percentage of the buffalo in the world are on these farms. Why would anyone grow foxes, buffalo, minks, etc. if there is no money in it?

Someone should run a counter ad to PETA that says something like, “careful what you wish for, you just might get it.”

I still am laughing at their “demand” on Wednesday that the tiny town of Turkey Texas (where Western Swing legend Bob Wills was born) change its name for Thanksgiving to “Tofurkey Texas”.

This challenge has not gone unanswered:

In response to the open letter from PETA (http://www.peta.org) Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman calling on Turkey, Texas to change its name to Tofurky, Texas, co-founders of Pork Barrel BBQ, the nation’s fastest-growing barbecue sauce company, have presented Pat Carson, the Mayor of Turkey, Texas with an appetizing offer to temporarily change the town’s name to “Barbecue, Texas.”

Heath Hall and Brett Thompson, widely recognized for creating the award-winning all-American BBQ sauce and spice rub company and their reality TV show appearances on ABC’s Shark Tank, are offering to fork over $1,000 immediately and $5 from every Picnic or Party Pack sold on its website from November 18th through December 9th in exchange for the town changing its name to “Barbecue, Texas” for 16 hours – split evenly between three Turkey, Texas Charities:

1) Bob Wills Foundation (providing scholarships to local students)
2) Turkey Restoration Project (restoring Turkey, Texas school)
3) Turkey, Texas All Volunteer Ambulance and Fire Department

A few facts for PETA:

1. Foxes and coyotes are not protected; they are predators

2. Foxes, along with minks and other fur creatures, are farmed. They are a crop, just like corn and trees are a crop.

3. Environmentally, natural fur is a better choice than artificial insuators.

@Listens2Glenn @Living4Him5534: Nope, definitely not! I was being sarcastic: Those baby foxes actually kinda give me the creeps. Did you see the glint in their eyes? I live in deer hunting territory and wholeheartedly approve — and I’m pretty sure “Bambi” is the quintessential Disney animal classic. (As a little girl, I did cry when I saw a car hit a deer, though.)

@lorien1973 Yep! I’m giving them attention because it’s, well, fun! And because I think, for many people, every time they hear what PETA’s up to, they remember why they’re *not* animal rights activists!

@NotCoach: And, yes, that’s my point exactly. Many of the same people who deny that humans are fundamentally different than animals still don’t defend human life with the same ardor with which they defend animal life. That’s fine with me if you want to say “humans are really no different than animals” and “all animal life is sacred,” but, then, connect the dots and say, “all human life is sacred.” Anybody who has ever seen video of an abortion knows the baby feels pain, just as PETA activists say animals feel pain when they’re “beaten, boiled, hanged and electrocuted” for their fur.

Some predators are protected if they are endangered. Here in NH we have 2 (Grey Wolf and Lynx).

What bull****.

Anyone who has some old, turn of the century photographs can plainly see that our great-grandfathers had cut down nearly every tree in sight for wood to use as fuel, timber and the like.

That’s where the habitat loss was. Not so today – at least in the Northeast. Take a look at some Google Earth images. Lots and lots of trees. Not a lot of humans.

Animals that are now found in abundace that were utterly absent when I was a kid growing up in the 70′s:

White Tail Deer
Coyote
Wild Turkey
Canada Goose
Red Tail Hawk
Bald Eagle
Ospray
Turkey Vulture (or that might have been a 747 flying past)
More White Tail Deer
Bobcat
Black Bear
Fisher Cat
Even more White Tail Deer…

Get the picture?

As far as fur is concerned, there is no difference between fur, leather, wool, sheepskin, red meat, etc., except that it is prized and reletively expensive compared to the others.

Properly designed and worn, it is just about as perfect an accessory as a woman can wear. Too bad that it is out of fashion – directly due to fascist a-holes like those at PETA.

It is planly apparent that PETA is no different than all the other rabid leftist organizations that try to force you to do something they want by demonizing you.

Not only should you not listen to these cretins, you should actively push back against their agenda.

Kim is hot. PETA is not. Only reason they used her. Also, their wording is completely out of whack. It’s like it’s saying that Kim is the foxes mother and that they miss her. And then they ask if Kim is on your back. UHHH!!! I know what they’re trying to say, but poor presentation all around.

What gets me about their logic is that in most cases, these animals were bred for their fur. If it were not for the fur industry their great grandparents would be dead on the side of the road and they would not have been born.

The ultimate objective, according to founder Ingrid Newkirk, is for domesticated animals to be extinct.

So, PETA, did you hear the one about the baby seal who walked into a club?

Regarding the unborn–the position of many “animal rights” activists is that it is better to have never been born at all, which is why they often advocate the spaying of even pregnant animals. It’s not about caring for animals more than people. They care for neither.

I don’t understand all this hatred toward PETA. I’ve been a member for years:

People
Eating
Tasty
Animals

Kim is a fox, why shouldn’t she wear fox fur?

That’s where the habitat loss was. Not so today – at least in the Northeast. Take a look at some Google Earth images. Lots and lots of trees. Not a lot of humans.

Animals that are now found in abundace that were utterly absent when I was a kid growing up in the 70′s:

White Tail Deer
Coyote
Wild Turkey
Canada Goose
Red Tail Hawk
Bald Eagle
Ospray
Turkey Vulture (or that might have been a 747 flying past)
More White Tail Deer
Bobcat
Black Bear
Fisher Cat
Even more White Tail Deer…

Amazing how anyone could have thought the Canada Goose was an endangered species. There are dozens of them near every little lake and pond in New England, pooping on the nearby grass all year. Most of them have never seen Canada and wouldn’t know how to get there.

There are probably more wild turkeys around than during Ben Franklin’s time, when they were supposed to be the national bird.

Then there was the story of the coyote running loose last year in Yale’s back yard, in New Haven along the coast. After a few pet puppies met an early demise, Wile E. Coyote was euthanized…

If PETA is worried about Dashin’ Kim’s fox coat, one ran across the road in front of my car last winter, and I skidded into a snowbank sparing its life.

A few years ago, Momma Black Bear showed up in a park in suburban West Hartford CT with three Baby Bears, and State wildlife officials had to tranquilize her and the cubs for the safety of human picknickers. They were taken to Avon Mountain, about five miles away, and released. Now, Goldilocks, don’t pet the teddy bear, Momma Bear might not like that…

Yes, Goldilocks, there are wild animals in New England…lots of ‘em!

It’s actually wrapped around her neck.

And there are always plenty of places willing to let her park that Buick.

Zaire67 on November 18, 2011 at 6:38 PM

I murder coyotes, pheasants, and cows.
The last 2 taste pretty good.
The 1st one has some really nice fur.

Indeed.

As my nom de cybre might suggest, I know a thing or two about the Canada Goose.

Prior to 1980, you never saw one. Any. Not a one.

Then, all of a sudden, they were everywhere on the golf course doing what they do best – excreting.

Everywhere.

I would have to mow greens six days a week. Every green was coated in goose ****. That meant that I had to clean the goose **** off of the rollers, otherwise the green would be cut at 6″.

Ever try to putt on a goose **** covered golf green cut at 6″?

Doesn’t work.

And to think that the Canada Goose was deliberately reintroduced into the wild by environazis. They didn’t think about the consequences of the goose breeding at a rate that makes rabbits blush and to hell with that migration stuff -what’s up with that?

As bad as that was (and it was bad) I never had a goose fly into the motor of my greensmower forcing me to land my greensmower on the Hudson River.

Personally, I think we should start feeding environmentalists into the maw of jet engines.

Wearing our fur coats, of course.

Pattosensei on November 18, 2011 at 5:49 PM

Thanks alot, I’m going to be all night recovering from that one.

My diaphragm and throat are aching . . . . . .

listens2glenn on November 18, 2011 at 7:20 PM

As I tweeted recently, where, for example, is PETA in the battle for unborn baby humans?

Why should they be anti-abortionists? What’s the connection? A fetus is a non-sentient blob of nothing – that might become something one day – like an OWS protestor. An animal, once born, is very much aware of itself and its surroundings. One is not like the other. How anyone can have sympathy for something that feels nothing, while having no sympathy for the creatures that actually do, is the height of moral chutzpah.
