Skip to comments.Father to PETA: Hands Off My Kid!

Paul Johnston of Middletown, Delaware is one ticked-off parent. And with good reason. As the Middletown Transcript reports, Johnston's daughter -- a student at Louis L. Redding Middle School -- came home from school last week with a propaganda booklet and magazine from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The PETA materials, it turns out, were part of the official classroom teaching. "I thought it was totally inappropriate for something like this to even be thought of being in the curriculum," Johnston told a reporter. We couldn't agree more. The Center for Consumer Freedom has written to Dr. Sue Dutton (the principal of the young Johnston girl's school), along with the members of the local school board, asking them to reconsider putting their stamp of approval on PETA propaganda. A sampling from our letter:
The debate shouldn't be about whether animal welfare is a valuable thing to teach. No one, after all, wants to endorse cruelty to animals. But it's equally irresponsible to lend a school's imprimatur to the teachings of a group that values lab rats over human children, believes giving milk to kids constitutes "child abuse," actively recruits an "army of animal rights rebels" in and around schools, encourages children to regard their non-vegetarian parents as "murderers," and has even funded the operations of arsonists and other violent felons. Administrators in Mr. Johnston's school district will also receive copies of "Your Kids, PETA's Pawns," the Center for Consumer Freedom's report detailing PETA's plan to indoctrinate millions of American children behind their parents' backs. Skeptical? PETA activists appeared outside a Wisconsin middle school at 7:30 this morning, handing anti-chicken trading cards to young kids as they walked to school.
Parents: If your child brings home animal-rights propaganda materials (often masquerading as "humane education" booklets), drop us a note and tell us your story. We'll be happy to educate your school administrators.
Teachers and other education professionals: Printed copies of "Your Kids, PETA's Pawns" are available to you free of charge. Just let us know where to send them.
In Virginia, a push to require "humane education" in schools was shot down by concerned parents and pet owners. Keep in mind, Virginia has the dubious distinction of being ground zero for PETA.
Your ping lists may find this of interest.
Good for that Dad and good for those fighting against PETA. Good link, good info. Thanks! :)
PETA actually has an extremely large office building...complete with a freezer (walk-in type) down in the bottom part of the building.
After watching the HBO BS episode on PETA...I became firmly convinced that they aren't just a bunch of nuts...they represent a threat to the security of America. They are in the same league as ALF (Animal LIberation Front). Most of the members are also members of the Kyoto Treaty support group...and most are against world commerce. When you add this up...there are alot of issues.
And brain-dead morons (AKA DUmmies) wonder why we want the NEA out of the school system. Thjis was totally inappropriate and the teacher should be fired for it.
>they represent a threat to the security of America.<
I absolutely believe this also. I'd urge people to never underestimate them. They are insidious, and they understand Gramsci's teachings perfectly, which is why they are desperate to get their brain-washing into our schools.
LOL! Must be cause I slept in and my eyes are still not quite fully open, but I first read that as "if you want to go HURL..."
I guess it still applies. ;o) PETA can blow it out their shorts.
As a Carnivore, I think schools should teach the idea's of P.E.T.A.
OK....am I missing something? What's the significance of the freezer?
I believe that ALF is the activist arm of PETA. They are very dangerous organizations.
It's where they keep the sides of beef and whole pigs for their spring pit bbq?
ALF is to PETA as the IRA is to Sinn Fein. PETA is the political wing of the terrorist organization.
Perhaps a stupid question...but why doesn't the FBI target these guys for investigation? It would seem that there is plenty to go into court with.
PETA tacitly supports Violence, and destruction of private property.
it is a religion of "GIA" and Animal worship.
It is not compassionate, It is Evil and the father should Sue the School.
That's where the keep dead human bodies.
It's amazing that public schools are receptacles for any wack group that can get their foot in the door.
