    Posted August 14, 2014 at 2:44 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Big Fat Lies, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is claiming that cows on a North Carolina dairy farm are being mistreated, and the group has released footage of the animals slogging through knee-deep manure to prove it. One problem: The so-called undercover footage stinks of PETA misinformation. So strap on your muck boots, because we’re about to wade through the […]

    Put Down PETA

    Posted August 7, 2014 at 1:59 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, The Green Fringe, Violence

    After years of reporting on the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), you’d think the organization might show some true remorse about the thousands of cats and dogs it kills at its headquarters and try to make some changes. Instead, it’s doubling down. The animal “liberation” group kills up to 97 percent of dogs and cats in its so-called […]

    Posted July 17, 2014 at 10:22 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    For a number of years, we’ve called attention to the shameful hypocrisy of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)—an animal liberation group that has killed up to 97 percent of the dogs and cats in its “animal shelter” in a given year. In that effort, we’ve re-vamped our Petakillsanimals.com website, but be warned, […]

    We know that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and its activist allies like to invent reasons to avoid milk. But now the animal liberation radicals are pulling from the dangerous anti-vaccine playbook, claiming that moo-juice causes autism. An infectious disease specialist writing at the Daily Beast calls PETA out for its misleading myth-making. He argues: But by sticking their nose into the […]

    Will NYC Win Be “Taken” from PETA?

    Posted April 17, 2014 at 11:10 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The radical animal liberation group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) claims horse-drawn carriage rides are an “outdated practice” that cause “cruelty” to horses, and it is active in an initiative to ban horse carriages in New York City. Those complaints are rich coming from a group that slaughtered 82% of the cats and dogs in its care last year, […]

    CCF Hits Back as PETA Targets Youth

    Posted March 27, 2014 at 2:20 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The Daily Mail reports that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals—at least those lucky enough not to end up at its headquarters—is running a new ad campaign aimed at younger people. The ad uses text messaging images called “emojis” to give PETA’s slanted, animal liberationist view of various consumer products. PETA boss Ingrid Newkirk […]

    “Broadway Joe” Ticks Off PETA

    Posted February 4, 2014 at 2:32 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    Joe Namath, the New York Jets legend, conducted the coin toss to begin Super Bowl XLVIII while wearing a fur overcoat. Namath has a flamboyant reputation, and many observers found the coat well within the Hall of Fame quarterback’s larger-than-life persona. Of course, the humorless animal-liberationist scolds at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals […]

    This Thanksgiving Activists Say Please Pass the Politics

    Posted November 27, 2013 at 4:36 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Biotechnology, Food Police, From CCF, Meat

    A big story this Thanksgiving is the invasion of the political into every nook and cranny of American family life. National organizations promoting healthcare reform and gun control have distributed talking points to their supporters to make the potentially enjoyable mealtime conversation more contentious and political. In turning Turkey Day into Politics Day, these groups […]

    “Applause” to Star’s Stand Against PETA

    Posted November 14, 2013 at 10:27 am in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    Perhaps unsurprisingly for a pop star who once wore a dress made of preserved meats, Lady Gaga has had a tiff with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). But unlike some celebrities who capitulate to the world’s most notorious animal liberation group, Gaga has taken the organization to task for its awful record. […]

    University of Wisconsin Blasts PETA

    Posted October 9, 2013 at 3:05 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    Recently, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has waged an all-out assault on the University of Wisconsin (UW) complete with a robocall by celebrity supporter Bill Maher. PETA is trying to intimidate UW into abandoning research on how hearing works — and how deafness might be cured — using feline models. PETA is […]
