I want to write an article for the local papers (and maybe not so local ones) and set them straight on what PETA really is all about. So many think they are about treating animals respectfully but the truth will shock them. :eek:

I tried doing a search but got a lot of opinions on PETA. I need facts that I can back up. I know Daniel Boone has spoken or written on them and so have others. I would like to have you post, link, or PM me with your facts.

As Dragnet's Sgt. Joe Friday would say.........

"JUST THE FACTS, MA'AM"

One of PETAs main goals is total animal liberation.That means they would like you to release little Fido back into nature.They are totally against any animal testing,yet one of the highest ranking members of the association had a life saving surgery that was only made possible through...you guessed it animal testing.Ive also read that almost two thirds of animals they "save" end up being uthenized anyway.The worst thing about PETA is they are fanatical, just as much as we are.As badly as we want to keep our traditions of hunting they want to take them away.

7 Things You Didn't Know About PETA


1) PETA president and co-founder Ingrid Newkirk has described her group’s overall goal as “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.
2) Despite its constant moralizing about the “unethical” treatment of animals by restaurant owners, grocers, farmers, scientists, anglers, and countless other Americans, PETA has killed over 10,000 dogs and cats at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. During 2003, PETA put to death over 85 percent of the animals it collected from members of the public.
3) PETA has given tens of thousands of dollars to convicted arsonists and other violent criminals. This includes a 2001 donation of $1,500 to the North American Earth Liberation Front (ELF), an FBI-certified “domestic terrorist” group responsible for dozens of firebombs and death threats. During the 1990s, PETA paid $70,200 to an Animal Liberation Front (ALF) activist convicted of burning down a Michigan State University research laboratory. In his sentencing recommendation, a federal prosecutor implicated PETA president Ingrid Newkirk in that crime. And PETA vegetarian campaign coordinator Bruce Friedrich told an animal rights convention in 2001 that “blowing stuff up and smashing windows” is “a great way to bring about animal liberation.”
4) PETA activists regularly target children as young as six years old with anti-meat and anti-milk propaganda, often waiting outside their schools to intercept them as they walk to and from class-without notifying parents. One piece of kid-targeted PETA literature tells small children: “Your Mommy Kills Animals!” PETA brags that its messages reach over 2 million children every year, including thousands reached by e-mail without the permission of their parents. One PETA vice president told the Fox News Channel’s audience: “Our campaigns are always geared towards children, and they always will be.”
5) PETA has used a related organization, the PETA Foundation, to fund the misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a deceptive animal rights group that promotes itself as an unbiased source of medical and nutritional information. PCRM's president also serves as president of the PETA Foundation.
6) PETA runs campaigns seemingly calculated to offend religious believers. One entire PETA website is devoted to the claim-despite ample evidence to the contrary-that Jesus Christ was a vegetarian. PETA holds protests at houses of worship, even suing one church that tried to protect its members from Sunday-morning harassment. Its billboards taunt Christians with the message that hogs “died for their sins.” PETA insists, contrary to centuries of rabbinical teaching, that the Jewish ritual of kosher slaughter shouldn't be allowed. And its infamous “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign crassly compares the Jewish victims of Nazi genocide with farm animals.
7) PETA has repeatedly attacked research foundations like the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, because they support animal-based research that might uncover cures for birth defects and life-threatening diseases. PETA president Ingrid Newkirk has said that “even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we would be against it.”

So basicly no chance for human survival?! Wow, if PETA had their way we wouldn't be predators any more, but scavengers low on the food chain! way to use your big brains (thanks to eating meat btw) peta supporters! Personally, I love being on the top of the food chain! I would like to thank my ancestors for eating meat, using animal hides for shelter and warmth, and making tools and weapons for giving me the opportunity to have a decent life! PETA is a bunch of greedy ungrateful idiots!!

Good luck w/ your article illbowhunter
