317Fwd: Deception at PETA
- Jun 20, 2005Culmea culmilor! Doi angajati PeTA au fost arestati pentru cruzime impotriva animalelor. Se pare ca Peta de cativa ani buni strange caini si pisici spunand ca le vor gasi o casa, dar marii majoritati din aceste animale nu li s-a gasit nici o casa, fiind "eutanasiate". Acest caz este o lovitura grea pt cei care lupta pt. drepturile animalelor. Peta este foarte controvesata si pentru modul cum duce unele campanii care socheaza opinia publica...

Deception at PETA
"If caught or killed the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your existence." Mission Impossible Instructions For Loyal Employees ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ingrid Newkirk has a history of deception. As a matter of fact, one of my favorite books is her "Free The Animals," the story of Ingrid's path to founding PETA. In her introduction, Ingrid explains that she is writing about an individual other than herself. A third party. She has continually denied that she is her own book's protagonist. All I can say is "cow chips." Ingrid should take pride in her past adventures and achievements in which she rescued abused animals and exposed the horrors of animal research labs by stealing "insider" videotapes which documented widespread abuses. Still, Ingrid is a liar. A liar by any other name is not a rose. It's a liar, and what she's done this past week is to pass the blame for PETA's unethical animal abuse onto innocent worker bees who were just following orders. In the cult of the PETA worker, I wonder why these easily impressionable and underpaid children don't just take cyanide capsules when caught. That way, Ingrid's not-so-clean butt would not be exposed. Hey, Ingrid. You're hanging those employees of yours out in the swirling wind of a tornado to dry. Apparently, the buck does not stop at your desk. How pathetic of Ingrid Newkirk to blame PETA's horror story on two kids. Produce your past incineration bills, Ingrid. PETA has been killing thousands of animals each week for many years. How dare they lay the blame on loyal employees who just follow orders? Does it matter what happens to dead bodies? Buried at sea, or burned to ashes, or placed into a dumpster, what really is the crime? Murder is murder. The manner in which bodies are disposed of does not worsen or lessen the crime. Ingrid's latest smokescreen does not hide her victimless policy of killing healthy animals. "We would never do that," explained Ingrid. Do what? Kill innocent creatures, as you have done? "We do not condone dumping bodies in dumpsters." Give me a break. What PETA should be doing. PETA should address the problem, not their "ultimate solution." The problem is "unwanted pets." The problem is people not taking responsibility for animals. Neutering helps to prevent unwanted animals. Does not PETA have the resources to open a dog and cat shelter in upstate New York, just as Gene and Lori Bauston once did in opening Farm Sanctuary? One cannot rescue every unwanted dog or cat, just as one cannot rescue the 10 billion farm animals killed each year to feed Americans. In a sense, rescued animals living at sanctuaries become ambassadors for billions of abused animals. PETA should place their enormous resources and funds to open such a shelter. By euthanizing animals, PETA buries the secret of those shelters who mass-kill their unwanted dogs and cats. These creatures die horrible deaths. PETA rationalizes that their euthanization program delivers compassionate slaughter to animals that would otherwise be mass-murdered. Know what? I prefer the uncompassionate mass-murder scenario combined with public outrage. PETA has those horrible films as a result of past undercover operations. They should use some of their dollars to advertise this abuse. All people should view the horrible truth of what really happens to unwanted pets. Only then can the system be changed. On their present course, PETA will succeed in doing nothing in that regard. In this way PETA keeps these truths from the public by quietly euthanizing sentient creatures. There has never been any more offensive a concept as compassionate murder. Compassionate slaughter is an insult to those pretending to have compassion. Note: For the first time that I've been writing columns, more than ten percent of my readers felt the need and passion to respond to Saturday's column. See: <http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/notmilk/message/2052 > In her press conference, Ingrid Newkirk, the mistress of doublespeak, said: "Now let me explain why PETA believes euthanasia is the kindest gift to a dog or cat unwanted and unloved." Kindest gift? How about love? Rescue? Adoption? Death is a kind gift? There are many unloved humans. Should death be their kindest gift too? Ingrid, you've grown dangerous, and the animal rights movement is not being taken seriously by those who we criticize for their abuse of animals. The per capita consumption of chickens and cattle continues to increase, despite your efforts. It is time for self examination. Death in any form is not a kind gift. Despite your delusions, you are not the angel of mercy to these creatures. You have become the angel of death. What greater irony is there that you continue to solicit funds from people who believe that you are there to help these animals needing love? More than 500 letters received regarding my last column, but all were not supportive of my position. Two of the letter writers were quite upset with me for exposing PETA for their crime against animals. For the others: Thank you for understanding that death is the infinite cruelty.
