Stunts for Punks

Feel the guilt, send a check...

Here we go again,when will the activist learn? Recently PeTA started yet another propaganda campaign, this time in a comic book style, and handed them out to your children at schools across America. Bottom line message: If your father fishes he will kill your cat or dog. Parents go berserk who, how, why, they'll ask? Talk shows, then will invite the very ernest, the very smug, and the very young PeTA representative to explain themselves, of course during the interview the PeTA rep. will avoid any direct or meaningful answers to questions about their despicable and fanatical tactics, as they proceed to shill their web sites, "1-800 numbers" and future protest rallies. Soon the fervor over their stunt dies down, and they will "rinse and repeat" this media strategy. This is all done in the name of "the just and right cause" of respecting all animal life, expanding conscienceness, and stopping any and all harm of "our furry friends." (the reality about that last part in the last next paragraph). Seriously Hats off, it's brilliant viral marketing, and they get national air time for free! They're a fringe group that now has the media footprint of a major movement all for the cost of a few hundred printed handouts.

But I wish to warn our friends at PeTA about the law of diminishing returns, that is to say they need to learn "the lessons of Reefer Madness." Everyone remembers that film right? It was a health and welfare type film made in the 1930's to warn wayward preppies of the dangers of drug use. It is still used today as a metaphor for anti-drug hysteria (not true it's just campy, and very bad story telling) Even today, after living through the druggy wasteland of the 70's, the crack epidemic of the 80's, and the very public decline (due to drug use) of most of the media's heros in the 90's, when someone dare try to suggest the idea that drugs may not be best way to spend your time what do you think is thrown out an rebuttal? After some very condescending head shakes and chuckles they say "isn't that what they told us in Reefer Madness" and then the "fill-in-the blank" Talk show runs a 5 sec clip of 30's flappers doing the charleston in a living room before (gasp) falling on a couch together. Over the top ok, funny for sure, good tv you bet, but that wasn't the point was it? Why is this film a joke? You see that film wasn't the way most people experienced marijuana therefore drug advocates or if you will the anti-drug detractors had a powerful weapon to use for decades to come to frame their enemies. Which is my point PeTA who do you think your converting with this stunt? Your group is already suffering from perception of being a "fellow traveler" whose ultimate goal is anti-property, anti-family, and hostile in general to American culture. How again does that help Animals? PeTA wouldn't it be more effective to dial it back a bit? I mean, every kid that sees their dad fish and not kill the family dog, every family building their first home only to find it burnt to the ground by you (or your tree hugging allies in Earth Alliance ), and every-time your tactics/claims/asertions are proven untrue through their experience you losing a future zealot not just today but for decades.

Finally lets all remember the only reason we listen to PeTA at all... misplaced GUILT! (probably over some cruel act done as a kid) Were told that these people morally superior to you or I. They set a high standard don't they, "never to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment any animal." No fur, no testing, heck PeTA doesn't even want us to keep them as pets. These people are the vanguard of compassion and ethical treatment of animals, right? (can you fill the guilt) Then can understand how I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out that PeTA kills 79.6% of animals they received as rescues (people believe its a none kill shelter) over the last 6 and a half years. PeTA even got busted for illegally killing, and dumping the bodies in a North Carolina Piggly Wiggly. (now thats irony!) This wouldn't been so shocking if PeTA hadn't raked in nearly $29 million last year in income. I also learned that in 2000, when the Associated Press first noted PeTA's Kervorkian-esque tendencies, PeTA president Ingrid Newkirk complained that actually taking care of animals costs more than killing them. "We could become a no-kill shelter immediately," she admitted. I wonder where the money, went printing & shipping perhaps? Sigh, 29 million people, 29 million dollars aint that enough for puppy chow?


Here it is one more time your 29 million at work (pitting kids against parents).

The devil is just one man with a plan, but evil ... true evil is a collaboration of men which is what we have here today. If I am a guilty man, my crime is in daring to believe that the truth will out ... I believe it still. Much as you try to bury it, the truth is out there. Greater than your lies, the truth wants to be known. ...It'll come to you as it's come to me, faster than the speed of light. -agent Fox Mulder
