    What is PETA's view on gun control? I'm guessing they don't like guns since they're used to KILL INNOCENT ANIMALS!!

    With current topics floating around like "Would you eat your animal" and "Would you shoot your dog", I would like to see a PETA member join us. :evil:

    I may be wrong but I believe that PETA supports anyone/ any group who supports them, and that would be left wing wackos.

    It's interesting, just yesterday I was listening to a song by Goldfinger - a ska band I normally enjoy - called "<naughty word> Ted Nugent", which derides the Nuge for his hunting advocacy ("killing squirrels" as the song goes, among other things) as well as taking a shot at the NRA. It also bashes Jennifer Lopez because she "eats cows". Quite a song.

    The lead singer of Goldfinger is, apparently, a notorious PETA shill and marketing drone. Anyway, I was a little disappointed, but it's a free country (PETA's efforts to the contrary notwithstanding.)

    I really don't think it would make them any better if they were pro gun.E.D. Hill and Bo Derrick are pro gun and I have no use for them since they both have made anti-fur comments.

    Here in Norfolk, PETA world HQ, we see a lot of them. Being generally blissninny liberals of course they don't like guns. If you have a gun you are 43 times more likely to shoot something and eat it. This is a "gateway" crime that often leads to an evil known as dessert, often milk and cookies!


    Despite this they were not detered about wandering the local Wildlife management area a few years back during hunting season shooting .22s in the air to keep the game spooked. Another favorite is slashing tires in the parking lot. This year saw talcum powder strewn all through the woods to sppok the deer up with a human scent. Course it rained the same night so, oopsie.

    Remember kiddies, we abhor violence unless it furthers our cause.

    Okay, let me put on my asbestos undies

    For several years, The Wife and I were probably the only people alive with memberships both in PETA and the NRA. Man, was our mailman confused. We are some of those annoying vegetarian people who believe it is wrong to abuse animals, and our definition of abuse includes things such as poultry farms, stockyards and the like. But we also have the annoying habit of not pushing our beliefs on other people. To do so implies that I am wiser than you, and that lacks style. That being said, we both dropped our memberships with PETA about 6 years ago when it became apparent that they were much more concerned with being annoying than with helping the plight of animals. I found it strange that the little wienners who threw paint on runway models and little old ladies were never found doing the same to leather jackets up around Sturgis or snakeskin boots at a Texas chili cookoff.
    However, while most members are liberal to the extreme and probably have ties to various Grabber groups, PETA has never had an official stand on gun control. As far as I'm concerned, they don't need that for me to find them offensive.

    I am more like a morlock. I like the Eloi women though!:D

    Seriously though, the PETA people are off their rockers. You will never see one throwing paint on a bikers leather jacket because they know they will be beaten to a pulp. Which , in my opinion, they deserve. I would not be averse to finding one of these idiots attempting to slash my car tires. I would pound him till his mother would not recognize him.

    Vegetarian: a Native American word denoting a piss poor hunter!

    PETA Commandos heavily armed

    You people are underestimating PETA. The organization fields a special operations unit called the "PETA Commandos" who are heavily armed, and rescue animals in distress. The picture and link below describe a recent rescue operation of this daring, noble group:

    Ever so amused! Bears don't just eat veggies! In nature it is the prey that eats veggies. The predator eats meat! So I am all for Elsie getting the bolt through the head down at the stun line. MMMMMM!!!! Good!!! Steaks!!!!! MMMMM!!!!!

    The rabbit rescuers look like Mall Ninjas. :D

    I hate to tell the PETA people but plants and vegetables have feelings too. We shouldn't decimate and kill these poor living things.

    Save the animals and plants!! Extinction is not the answer. We should control our desire to ingest and feel compassion toward them.

    Peta and other fanatical New Agers are actually just the new form of bigot in our society. Hunting is simply not the going fad, and therefore is discriminated against by non-hunting PETA bigots. They might as well put on white hoods and burn crosses.

    In light of their violent and fanatical bent, I heartily recommend that anyone with contact with these terrorist supporting criminals arm themselves and be ready to react to deadly force.

    PETA is known to comtribute to very violent domestic and international terrorist forces such as The Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, both of which are under FBI scrutiny for terrorist activities, including arson and murder.

    Don't kid yourselves, PETA is serious. They consider themselves to be a superior religious society and must accomplish their agenda to succeed. At all costs. They are nutty as a fruit cake, but they don't know it. That makes them dangerous.

    Har!

    One of my neighbors is a PETAphile. She goes out and "rescues" cats, spays them then turns them loose in the park, the bird sanctuary et cetera where they can decimate the nesting bird population every spring.

    She got a mouse infestation (like everybody else around here this warm fall) so after they started eating holes in everything in her house she finally set out some glue traps. Well she caught some mice.

    What did she do with them?

    She didn't want to HURT them so she buried them alive! :what:

    Okiecruffler,

    Interesting observations. I think I know what you mean. There is a definite open niche in our society for a real animal advocacy group - one who seeks to improve conditions in the meat industry, etc. I personally can understand why some people would be upset with some aspects of the meat industry, especially companies doing illegal stuff that can effect public health (though I personally view animals no different from plants in this regard).

    Instead, PETA can't make up their mind what they want. They can't go off on meat eaters beacause of how animals are treated in the meat industry and at the same time attack hunters. In doing so you become hypocritical and lose a potential base. Many hunters prefer wild game for the same reason PETA is against the meat industry. Most hunters are really into the ethics thing - such as a clean kill, etc, - and do not want their prey to suffer needlessly. Many also feel wild meat is cleaner and safer to eat. PETA is too full of leftist nut jobs to focus on any one issue, though.

    In addition, as MeekandMild demonstrated very well, PETA could use some people with actual knowledge of nature and wildlife management - and who have the true interest of animals at heart, as opposed to unstable nutjobs who think "Bambi" was a documentary.


    Adam

    More hypocrisy

    Many of the PETA members I would talk with would talk about the horrors of hunting while juice from their hamburger ran down their chin. I stopped eating processed meat about a year and a half BEFORE I stopped hunting. Hunting is much more humane than meat farms. PETA could do good by working to limit unneeded animal testing on things like cleaners and cosmetics, but they shoot themselves in the foot by lumping needed medical research in with the same issue. And NO ONE wins support from the public by making an ass and nuisance of themselves.

    I'll chime in here, since I'm the guy who - literally - wrote the book on these idiots.

    To clear up a couple misconceptions:

    - PeTA is not an environmental group. They've never done anything, never spent one penny to help protect or preserve any wild country or wildlife habitat. Never.

    - PeTA is not a pet rescue group. They operate a "shelter" in Norfolk that has almost twice the euthenasia rate as the metro Norfolk shelters. With their budget, they could fund a no-kill shelter in every state. They don't fund any.

    - PeTA is not a health advocacy group. They promote nitwittery like that put out by the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, which is three lies for the price of one - less than 5% of their members are physicians, they aren't a committee, as they're policy is dictated wholly by found and PeTA mouthpiece Neal Barnard, and the aren't advocating medicine, but vegan philosophy masquerading as science. PCRM is funded heavily by PeTA.

    What PeTA is is a massive fund-raising and political advocacy group. Their goals are to outlaw hunting, outlaw the raising of animals for food, fur or leather, outlaw the use of animals in research or medicine, and to outlaw the keeping of animals as pets. (Yes, really.) They're extremely well-funded, and astute enough to enlist a legion of empty-headed Hollywood nitwits to make their cause appeal to those whose capacity for analytical thought is somewhat less than that of a stuffed artichoke. Sadly, these days that's a significant portion of the younger generation.

    What PeTA poses to mainstream America is a threat every bit as great as Sarah Brady, Chuckie Schumer, and Hillary Klinton, and for much the same reason. They are fundamentally anti-freedom. Hunting, eating, guns, you name it.

    I thought this was a timely article about the PETAphiles' aganda: http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2003/1/3/65808.shtml

    BTW, wardmclark, animals don't have rights per se so the term "animal rights activist" is a semantic null. Call them PETAphiles instead. Other than that your book reviews sound good. :)

    MeekandMild, I make that point, exactly, in the first section of the book. :D good call.
