PETA Enlists Kids To Tell First Lady Easter Egg Policy is Rotten
By Alexander Mallin 5 hours ago
While the annual White House Easter Egg Roll celebration isn't one typically embroiled in controversy, three young girls are letting First Lady Michelle Obama know they aren't happy about it.
Well, three young girls on behalf of PETA, or the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
"I'm not mad. I'm just disappointed," says one girl, in the YouTube video released by the group this week titled, "Michelle Obama, We Need to Talk."
After some deep sighs and shaking of heads, the girls acknowledge that previous White House celebrations have involved thousands of hard-boiled eggs. The first lady's child critics say they would prefer the use of plastic ones instead.
As one girl asks, "If all the other first lady's jumped off a bridge, would you?"
The video is a part of a push by PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk to cut eggs from next Monday's 136 th annual Easter egg roll, which Newkirk links to in a letter to the First Lady.
"I hope that after hearing their message, you will implement a new, humane tradition at the White House by using synthetic eggs that don't require any animal to suffer," Newkirk says in the letter.
Newkirk even takes a jab at Mrs. Obama's "Let's Move" Initiative, saying "cruelly sourced, unhealthy eggs" are "primary contributors to some of our nation's top killers, including heart disease and strokes."
The girls claim in the video the White House uses "over 7,000 eggs every year" in its celebration.

If all the other first lady’s jumped off a bridge, would you?”
We can only hope....
Stupid animal activists. Shut up and do your Easter yoga.
If you really want to mes with animal rights activists, demand they stop killing innocent fruits and vegetables.
LOL, I thought the same thing.
People for the Ethical Treatment of A-Holes (those members of Peta)
They care about killing eggs, but don’t give a shit about killing human babies.
The precipice over which our republic hangs is illustrated not by the idiocy of the complaint that eggs are harmed. History is replete with idiots. It is revealed by the fact that ABC News covers it, and heads all over the land nod in agreement.
So PETA now wants chickens to stop laying eggs?
I envision a lot of constipated fowl.
A study says Vegans can get mental illness from lack of Vit B12 ,PETA proves it
Really? What, pray tell, do they have to say about the BLM’s treatment of Bundy’s cattle?
I honestly don’t understand the point here. The eggs we eat or dye are not fertilized, they would never turn into a chick. So what exactly is the suffering?
STFU PETA... thank you.
