    Are We All Vegans Now?

    Posted April 5, 2013 at 3:39 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Dairy, From CCF, Livestock, Meat

    Claiming that vegetarianism is just about to break through, this time is a classic animal liberationist tactic to peer-pressure omnivores into giving up their milk, bacon, and eggs. We covered a story last week that said all the cool pre-tweens were going veggie—a report that was full of more holes than Swiss cheese. Now the […]

    Newkirk Defends PETA’s Doggy Killing

    Posted April 1, 2013 at 3:34 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The sordid tale of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) doggy-and-kitty-killing ways has made a big splash across the pond, and a reporter with the Sunday edition of The Guardian sat down with the group’s president, Ingrid Newkirk, to let her explain herself. At the end of the profile, the reporter challenges Newkirk […]

    PETA’s True “Colours” Exposed

    Posted March 21, 2013 at 3:34 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    For all the talk People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) offers on “ethical treatment,” the group does seem to kill a lot of pets in its animal shelter — over 1600 last year, for a kill rate just shy of 90 percent. Our PETA Kills Animals project collects PETA’s animal record summaries provided […]

    PETA’s Death Toll Nears 30,000 Pets

    Posted February 7, 2013 at 1:37 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, Dairy, From CCF, Livestock, Meat, Seafood

    Since at least 1998, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has operated a pet “shelter” — more than the misnamed Humane Society of the United States can claim. Unfortunately the dogs and cats that are taken into PETA’s shelter are usually killed. And those that were sheltered in 2012 are no exception: According to Virginia state regulatory […]

    Would PETA Kill Monopoly’s Scotty Dog?

    Posted January 18, 2013 at 10:38 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The latest “press sluts” stunt by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) may just take the (no-egg) cake for a combination of audacity and pointlessness. The group that would take away your right to eat bacon and eggs, watch performing elephants and whales, wear leather, fur, or wool, or take advantage of lifesaving medical advancements developed by animal trials is positioning itself […]

    PETA Kills Animals, So Of Course It Accepts Celebrity Hypocrisy

    Posted January 9, 2013 at 4:10 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) thinks animals are “people,” and therefore the group harasses people who eat and wear animal products and those who conduct lifesaving medical research on animals. But PETA has no qualms killing roughly 2,000 dogs and cats every year, even those that its staff classifies as “adorable” and “perfect,” as our Senior Research Analyst reminded […]

    PETA Kills “People”

    Posted December 11, 2012 at 2:25 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    When you’re an animal rights activist, you spend considerable time equating some odd animals with people. Many years ago, a Los Angeles Times reporter asked People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) what the group had to say about ant farms. The answer was “Ants are sentient beings, like we are.” Ants’ tastier fellow arthropods, lobsters, even had a PETA […]

    Animal-Rights War on Circuses Heads to Los Angeles

    Posted December 6, 2012 at 5:37 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    Animal rights activists won’t be satisfied just to make everybody eat vegan food in all of its hexane-extracted soy powder glory. Their ideology holds, in the words of PETA cofounder and President Ingrid Newkirk, “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy,” so it shouldn’t surprise anybody that PETA sued Sea World claiming that whales are […]

    PETA Fires Ideological Birdshot at Kids over Thanksgiving

    Posted November 15, 2012 at 3:10 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Meat

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), last seen receiving a rebuke from the European Court of Human Rights for trying to bring its genocide-trivializing “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign to Germany, has a sordid history of propagandizing children and young people. In prior campaigns, PETA has called on teenagers to tear down school […]

    Disgusting PETA Campaign Bench-Slapped in Europe

    Posted November 8, 2012 at 2:48 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Livestock, Meat

    One of the most repulsive examples of the shameful behavior of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is its “Holocaust on your plate” campaign that compares livestock farming with one of the worst genocides in human history. It’s something when that’s only “one of” the repulsive examples; however, PETA’s record of killing over […]
