Tales from the PETAfiles: They've outdone themselves this time
PETA activists - including cuddly, costumed raccoons and foxes - are making guest appearances outside performances of The Nutcracker across the country this holiday season with a cheeky message of compassion. As children arrive to see the "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy," some will be unaware that their mothers are already starring in a real-life horror story! PETA will be there to greet any fur-clad moms and their children with their newest anti-fur leaflet-PETA Comics presents..."Your Mommy Kills Animals!"
Kids will see the bloody truth behind their momsí pretentious pelts. Accompanied by graphic photographs of skinned carcasses and animals languishing on fur farms, children will read: "Lots of wonderful foxes, raccoons, and other animals are kept by mean farmers who squish them into cages so small that they can hardly move. They never get to play or swim or have fun. All they can do is cry-just so your greedy mommy can have that fur coat to show off in when she walks the streets."
Here are the two pages of the comic: [click each for full size graphics]
What gives them the right to intrude on my personal life and choices? Ok, I don't wear fur - just because I think it's ugly - but I do eat meat and drink milk and engage in all those other things that PETA thinks are evil. How dare they use children to engage in their activist warfare? Isn't there a law against this? Endangering the mental health of a minor, maybe?
This angers me six ways to Sunday. Enough so that I have the urge to take my kids and go to the city, dressed in fur, and stand outside the theater just waiting for one of those cretins, dressed up as a raccoon or whatever woodland animal costume is the theme of the night and I swear on all that his precious, I would kick that activist so hard in the balls that they would come out of his ass. To be fair, if it's female, I would do something similar.
People who engage in this sort of activity have no conscience. They care more about the feelings of a rabid raccoon than they do human children. I say we kill them, skin them and make coats out of them.
I'm just wondering, how would you react if someone handed this comic to your kids?
