Real Girls Eat Meat

I’m back … finally! I ran into a MAJOR computer malfunction 10 days ago, and I’m too stubborn to give up trying to cure it myself.  Well … I DID IT!!!

Jessica_SimpsonSince it’s been so long since my last post, I thought I’d come back with a “news” story about Jessica Simpson and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).  I know this has already been through the press and forgotten, but hey, it’s a great excuse to post a picture of Jessica! 🙂

PETA, who’s president Ingrid Newkirk claims “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy”, now plans to target meat-eating celebrities.  At first, I think it’s funny that they target celebrities, but then my mood quickly saddens, as I realize how many people look to these celebrities as folk-heroes and believe in all the things they say.

From The Independent:

Ms Simpson was singled out for ridicule after she was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Real Girls Eat Meat”, believed to be a light-hearted dig at her boyfriend Tony Romo’s vegetarian ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood.

Alistair Currie, a spokesman for Peta, said: “Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn’t have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death. Some people feel like they are standing up against a tide of political correctness when they make a statement like this – what she is really doing is standing up for the status quo.”

PETA is an extremely radical organization.  As you can read in brief here, they have been involved in many extremely violent acts against humans, including burglaries, arson (burning down a 200-unit condominium complex), and firebombs (Michigan State University).  It’s my opinion that PETA simply hates people.  And while I’m playing armchair psychologist, it must then mean they really hate themselves.

Any group that has been involved with as much destruction of property, violence, and human death as PETA, should be investigated and squashed like any other terrorist organization.  Unfortunately, the PC Crowd has taken over, so any rational attempt to treat this organization for what they are – terrorists – turns into a baseless, emotional argument about cute, furry little animals.

Peter Singer, professor of ethics at Princeton University and leading animal rights activist, has the following to say about humans and animals:

“Surely there will be some nonhuman animals whose lives, by any standards, are more valuable than the lives of some humans.”

“When the death of a disabled infant will lead to the birth of another infant with better prospects of a happy life, the total amount of happiness will be greater if the disabled infant is killed. The loss of the happy life for the first infant is outweighed by the gain of a happier life for the second. Therefore, if the killing of the hemophiliac infant has no adverse effect on others it would . . . be right to kill him.”

“[T]he life of a fetus is of no greater value than the life of a nonhuman animal at a similar level of rationality, self-consciousness, awareness, capacity. to feel, etc., and that since no fetus is a person no fetus has the same claim to life as a person.”

“Very often it’s not wrong to kill a child once it’s left the womb. Simply killing an infant is never equivalent to killing a person.”

PETA simply HATES people! It’s that plain and simple.  And the not-so-funny thing is … they don’t much care for animals either.  As the San Francisco Chronicle points out in “Better Dead than Fed“:

DON’T BE FOOLED by the slick propaganda of PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals … two PETA employees were charged with 31 felony counts of animal cruelty each, after authorities found them dumping the dead bodies of 18 animals they had just picked up from a North Carolina animal shelter into a Dumpster.

The Center for Consumer Freedom … shows PETA has killed more than 10,000 animals from 1998 to 2003. “In 2003, PETA euthanized over 85 percent of the animals it took in … finding adoptive homes for just 14 percent. By comparison, the Norfolk (Va.) SPCA found adoptive homes for 73 percent of its animals and Virginia Beach SPCA adopted out 66 percent.”

[PETA president Ingrid] Newkirk also told the New Yorker the world would be a better place without people. She explained why she had herself sterilized: “I am opposed to having children. Having a purebred human baby is like having a purebred dog; it’s nothing but vanity, human vanity.”

Now you know. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals doesn’t really like people. PETA has no use for ethics. And PETA kills animals.

Yes indeed … PETA KILLS ANIMALS!

Think again before you donate a few bucks to help the animals.  Make sure your money is going to a geniune cause, and not to an organization run by psychopaths like PETA.
