A bunch of morons, although they have the right idea about helping animals, are doing it the wrong way. They destroy other people's property, and come up with stupid shit like "eating meat causes impotence" (I swear I saw a sign that PETA had put up that said that).
PETA seeks “total animal liberation.” This means no meat, no milk, no zoos, no circuses, no wool, no leather, no hunting, no fishing, and no pets (not even seeing-eye dogs). PETA is also against all medical research that requires the use of animals (including AIDS research).
They do in fact operate kills shelters and have killed over 10,000 healthy house pets. They are against animals as pets.
They support violence if it is for achieving their goal. They use their collected money to pay legal fees for members charged with felonies.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has donated over $150,000 to criminal activists -- including those jailed for arson, burglary, and even attempted murder
Also notice that the People of Ethical Treatment of Animals seem to favor the cute, cuddly-wuddly, furry animals. What about the insects and arachnids? What about the fish, mollusks, and crustaceans? What about the bacteria? What about the reptiles? What about humans? Don't they all have rights too? Would it be animal cruelty if one washes with antibacterial soap?
The PETA is also actively funding a dog-genocide campaign in which any canine suspected to belong to the Pittbull variety (a loveable, family-friendly, loyal dog that is safe with children IF TRAINED PROPERLY) is immediately taken from the owner and killed. Doesn't matter if the dog is half-Pittbull, 1/32 Pittbull, or looks like a Pittbull, the poor pooch will be marked for death.
Ethical Treatment my ass.
For every time the PETA pisses off humanity, I celebrate by barbecuing a steak or ribs.
Humans are classified under the animal kingdom, ergo humans are animals too. Yet many PETA members can't see the irony of their unethical treatment of fellow humans (animals).
Normal Thinking Person: What?!? You realise they are hypocritical terrorist! They killed and mutilated seals needlessly to try and sway others to ban the seal hunt, even if it means northern hunters will starve! They destroy others property and threaten their lives. How ethical is that?
Moron: Uh... oh... I guess I got caught up in all their emotional hype and never thought about it. Please don't tell anyone I shit out my brains and joined PETA.
