'Your mommy kills animals'
PETA activists to give fliers to kids whose moms wear fur

Animal-rights activists across the nation are planning to single out children who are unlucky enough to have mothers who wear fur by giving them fliers at performances of "The Nutcracker" ballet saying, "Your Mommy Kills Animals."

The fliers feature a woman stabbing a terrified rabbit in the belly with a bloody knife, reports the Boston Herald. Text on the pamphlets urges kids to "ask your mommy how many dead animals she killed to make her fur clothes."

"Children can't look up to a mom in a battered-raccoon hat or a crushed coyote collar,'' Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, told the paper. "Maybe when they're confronted by their own children's hurt looks, fur-wearers' cold hearts will melt.''

According to the report, the fliers even urge children to protect their pets from mom: "The sooner she stops wearing fur, the sooner the animals will be safe. Until then, keep your doggie or kitty friends away from mommy – she's an animal killer.''

Child psychologist Dr. Carolyn Newberger decried the tactic.

"It's using children in the worst possible way,'' she told the Herald. "If (the activists) want to legitimately work to protect animals from destruction for fashion, they have every right to. But to do so by targeting children and making them feel their mothers are murderers is absolutely unconscionable.''

According to PETA national coordinator Lisa Franzetta, activists will descend on Christmas performances of "The Nutcracker" in as many as 20 cities across the U.S.

The paper says Franzetta acknowledged the anti-fur campaign might spark a backlash.

"It's definitely provocative; I will give you that,'' she said.

Does your mommy smoke?

Has your daddy ever said anything to you about black people?

Do you have two mommies? Have you ever asked your mommy why not?

Does your mommy or daddy have guns in the house?

Does your mommy drive an SUV?

I saw this kind of tactic coming so I've already taken steps to... How shall I put this? ...butcher this one. For years now whenever my daughter asks "What's for dinner?", I answer "We're having dead  (Fill in the blank) ." My daughter always responds, much to the dismay of her mother, "Dead  (Fill in the blank) ? I loooove dead  (Fill in the blank) !" Should the PETAns try this stunt on her, I'm sure that she'd correct them by telling that daddy kills the animals; mommy sews the pelts.

Ya think, sicko?

Do these people go out into the wilderness encouraging other animals to be vegetarians?

If I had been there, I would have kicked these people in the groin and shoved their pamphlets up their bums.

I went to the original article and found links to the story about them trying to get Hamburg to change their name to Veggieburg. I can't believe I missed that back when it happened. It's hysterical. I urge anyone who missed that to click on the link and read that story.

We need to develop go back to the moon just so we can exile these "people". They have no place in a civilized society.

New to this site, first post. It really does stand to reason, if you think about it. The fact is, the sub-minority left in this country has long been kept in power by the Roosevelt democrats, and as they are thinning down due to attrition, these leftist fanatics are reaching deep in a desperate attempt to regain power. There will be a LOT more of this in the near future, and it will be a lot worse than this, so get ready. The good news is that their fate is sealed, because the truth is never on their side. Comments?

I remember listening to Michael Medved's radio program one day and hearing a caller tell a story that just appalled me.

He said that his toddler had learned to say and had taken to shouting out randomly, "George Bush is a good man and he's going to be president!"

The family was at a Starbucks in our area, when the child shouted the phrase out in the trendy coffeeshop.

Their table was approached by (I believe, IIRC) two liberal women, who crouched to the child's level and asked him who told him that. He replied that his father had. These two [blanks] proceeded to tell the child that they were sure his father was a nice guy and all that, but that he was wrong about George Bush.

The GALL. I still feel a bump in my blood pressure when I recall that story.

Welcome to FR! Good first post. I can't even begin to expect what they'll do in the coming months---if they'll totally lose it and elect Dean, or if the few sane members manage to derail that prospect.

I think they'll lose it. The sane ones sound like concerned family members dealing with a schizophrenic who won't take his meds.
I think it'll be difficult to stop the Deaniacs' screaming express train to Psychoville, USA.

God hope the mushy middle will realise that issues aside, you want sane people leading your country.

"... ask your mommy how many dead animals she killed to make her fur clothes."

JH2 - do you think the PETA folks could explain to me how one "kills" a dead animal?
