PETA Whoops

So to protest the Westminster Dog Show in Madison Square Gardens, those psychos over at PETA (who define the idea of "heart in the right place, head stuck up their ass") decided to draw a parallel between pure-breeding dogs and the KKK. Fine…I mean, it would have made more sense if they compared doggie eugenics to say, Hitler, but the KKK kind of works as well. But then these guys made their fatal flaw, as they so often do.

They dressed up as KKK members to hand out leaflets protesting the dog show. Now, if someone in a white robe and a pointy hat came up to me and told me not to go somewhere, I wouldn't go. But that's because I'm Jewish and my mother instilled a terror of the Ku Klux Klan in me that is only rivaled by Freddy Krueger and Teddy Ruxpin. But I imagine that a lot of people didn't understand the analogy and just saw Klan members protesting a dog show. Epic PETA FAIL.

How nice that people out there have the time and resources to put on attentionwhore shows when local communities are doddering under the weight of poverty and a sh!t economy. Priorities are clearly in line here.

(Also, I always thought Cricket was way scarier than Teddy Ruxpin. But ALL robots are evil and should not be tolerated. Kinda like vegans.)

Ugh, PETA is so counterproductive and misguided. I agree with "don't wear fur," really, but vandalism of other people's property and things like this are just ridiculous.

Also, Jossip for sale? o.o quoi?

Wow. Last I checked, dog breeders didn't LYNCH the puppies from the breeds they dislike.

Ohhhh PETA, why you so crazy?

Tsk tsk.. I'm not sure if this preposterous action is sanctioned by the entire PETA organization or just the action of some overly enthusiastic and bloody insensitive members. But this is entirely appalling and out of line. I support PETA's continuous efforts to save the animals but some of these efforts are totally uncalled for. As Kara said, they could be sadly misguided.

Dog breeders actually do kill puppies that aren't able to be sold. Plus, the whole idea of selecting a dog based on breed seems prejudiced to me. Not to mention that buying an animal harkens back to how we used to think we could "own" human beings.

In short - seems like they have an apt comparison here.

Right on, Glenn! PETA has a very valid point. People want to dislike them and critisize every campaign they do, but PETA does more to help animals than any other animal organization in the world- and just because times are rough with the economy right now (Darth Paul) does not mean we should turn our backs on the animals. As Glenn pointed out, breeders do kill puppies that cannot be sold, adult dogs who can no longer be bred, and hundreds of thousands of dogs in shelters each year (every time you buy from a breeder because you just have to have a certain type of dog, money goes into the hands of these awful breeders and dogs in shelters are euthanized daily). The KKK costumes may be shocking, but that's how they draw attention to a serious issue that would otherwise be ignored. How much media attention do you think they would have gotten if they stood quietly on a street corner holding posters with no costumes? GO PETA!

Go PETA? They do more to help animals than other organizations? You are grossly misinformed. They KILL more animals than they help. Do your research: 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. According to the Associated Press, 13 more dead animals were found in a van registered to PETA. Or check out http://www.petakillsanimals.co.....secret.cfm which has PETA's euthanasia records available; in 2007 they killed nearly 84% of animals they were supposed to help. They are loathsome hypocrites.

Suzie, you might want to look again at your source, also. The wording on the website seems to imply that spaying or neutering an animal counts as murder, also, because it prevents the animal from producing offspring. Now, if pets were not spayed or neutered, there would be even more issues with animal shelters, because there would be even more homeless or maltreated animals.

So really, while PETA may have it wrong, I think the website you are citing is, while trying to distance itself, just as biased and/or fallible.

Just an opinion. :)

Why should animals be spayed and neutred??? If we want to do population control get all the crackheads and money hungry welfare moms to get their f*cking tubes tied!!!!!
Leave the animals alone…they were here long before we were!!!!

The petakillsanimals website is run by the Center for Consumer Freedom, a front group for big tobacco and other big industries. The guy who runs it is actually the father of the singer from the Silver Jews - and he hasn't spoken to his father in years because of the work he does. The Center for Consumer Freedom is famous for campaigning against stronger drinking and driving laws. Not the kind of people I'd want to reference as my source…

Clearly people who think that PETA making KKK analogies or slavery analogies as they did before are racist. Call yourselves "liberal" if you want to, but by using these types of campaigns all you are doing is reenforcing the idea that people of African descent are akin to animals by - (wait for it) - comparing their history to animals.

My great uncle was murdered by the Klan; it is not the same as a dog being bred. And you saying that my uncle's life is comparable to a dog's life, when I still get racially profiled by the police and people still get shot for being black (see the recent BART case on youtube from Oakland) is the biggest bunch of horse crap I've seen in a while.
If I were in NYC and saw someone dressed in a KKK suit from PETA I would have kicked their ass for the sheer insensitivity to my experience alone, let alone the lack of respect for history or the thousands of people lynched by the KKK over the decades.

And I'm sure you all voted for Obama but in your hearts you are still a bunch of anti-black, ignorant, half-witted, and uncaring people drunk on white privilege.

Just an FYI to all of you missinformed PETA supporters, PETA is listed on the US FBI list as a terrorist group. This is because they have tried to kill people (bombing their cars,homes and business) all in the name of animals. As for Suzie's comments, she is right about PETA killing animals and the animal abuse charges of the PETA employees. Watch the Pen & Teller PETA show on you tube and see the facts for yourself. You can also find access to PETA's yearly spending reports, of which shows how they spend their money. It's not all for the good of animals. PETA is EVIL and if you just open your eyes you will see this.

@Glenn:
Puppy mill owners do that, Glenn, not the responsible, high-end breeders who show at Westminster. PETA was picketing the wrong group of people.

Now if PETA showed up outside a puppy mill and did their thing, I'd applaud them. Instead they get their message muddled, attack the wrong people for the wrong things (because…breeding responsibly for health and disposition, caring for and loving their dogs, and requiring their non-show dogs to be neutered before being sold is bad somehow?) only in the name of publicity.

It's sickening. They focus more on themselves than on the actual animals that need their help.
