PETA wants to turn Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home into a vegan restaurant

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) does not shy away from attention grabbing news stories when it comes to furthering their cause of animal rights. As reported by the Akron Beacon Journal, the organization’s president, Ingrid E. Newkirk, recently wrote a letter to the real estate agent who listed infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home for sale. In the correspondence to agent Richard Lubinski, Newkirk said that PETA would like to turn the Ohio house into a vegan restaurant and “respond to the past with something positive.”

The home, now listed for $295,000, was the location of Dahmer’s first murder in 1978. He killed, dismembered, and scattered the remains of Steven M. Hicks around the 1.5-acre property. Dahmer would later take the lives of 16 more victims. Newkirk wrote in her letter, “Dahmer’s old house gives us a way to evoke sympathy for these victims and to suggest that a life-affirming diet can change everything.” It is unclear what Ms. Newkirk meant by ‘everything.’

Zoning inspector and administrator Bill Funk explained that the group would, “have a lot of hurdles to jump,” because the house is located in a Bath Township residential zone where businesses are not allowed. However, PETA spokesperson Lindsay Rajt asserts that they are serious about the proposal andthey have even thought of a name and a possible menu for their future restaurant. They’re planning on calling the restaurant, Eat For Life: Home Cooking, and they intend to offer vegan dishes at a cost of $10 or less.

PETA gets their fund raising publicity by simply sending out outrageous press releases, they never actually have to go out and do anything.

It’s sad to think that there are beings out there who are sicker than Jeffrey Dahmer. Leftwing loony groups like PETA seem to attract them.

Sadly, on the PETA menu will be “Some Young Boy” (Sum Yung Boi). One of Dahmer’s victims was a young Laotian boy who the police let be taken back to Dahmer’s home when he escaped.

PETA is to humaneness as Charles Manson was to catering.

” - - - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) - - - “

Some folks claim that people are animals too - - - - .

Must be that PETA doesn’t believe that claim is “settled science.”

Fantastic, what a way to drain a good million dollars from PETA whereupon they’ll whine that they weren’t able to open a restaurant in a residential area. More power to them! (and ...really? $10 for $1.00 worth of veg? There’s $9 that PETA won’t have to use to annoy the rest of us.)

With PETA, any thing is possible.

In playing off Canada's most notorious serial killer (Robert Pickton fed his victims to his hogs, at least in current memory, PETA had a billboard ad playing off "Got Milk?", "Got Pork?". Besides the poor taste in general, the relatives of the victims were not all that amused by it.

As for Dahmer, his assets were sold off after his conviction, including the pots and pans from his kitchen. A couple of entrepreneurs bought them with the intent of opening up a serial killer/cannibal museum. The relatives of Dahmer's victims weren't too happy, but managed to come to terms with the businessmen for the pots and pans, and destroyed them.

The museum on Fiji has what's left of the boots of the last person consumed on Fiji. A tragic misunderstanding led to the celebratory feast over a mistaken "enemy"...

I think PETA should invest every penny they have in it.

I think it would be more appropriate to turn it into a homosexual bar.

I can’t help but wonder if this is some sick worshipfulness of Dahmer by Peta, after all Dahmer did “depopulate” people and Peta is all for that.

Two years ago I was in NYC. I saw several illuminated billboards on Times Square declaring that PETA killed animals. Word is getting out about them.
