    Chicks on the Right ^ | 12/3/2018 | Hannah Bleau
    Subscribe to the Chicks! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If you want to be vegan, be vegan. I don’t care. I only care if you’re the type of vegan who constantly feels the need to judge me and lecture me for eating meat and wearing leather boots. If you’re in my face, I’ll dial the vegan jokes to 11. (Actually, I’m always in the mood for a good vegan joke. They’re funny!) Actually, one of my friends is a vegan, so see? It’s actually possible for a meat eater and a vegan to be friends. However,...

    PETA has issued new guidelines for helping people remove what it has dubbed “speciesism” and anti-animal language from daily conversations. “Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it,” reads a tweet on the official PETA Twitter account. An accompanying chart gives several examples of common terms that PETA has dubbed offensive to animals alongside handy replacement phrases.
  • 'Bringing home the bacon' and other phrases PETA wants banned

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | December 4, 2018 | By Mike Moffitt
    Common idiomatic expressions like "bringing home the bacon" may eventually fall out of usage as more people embrace vegetarianism and veganism, a university researcher says. Dr. Shareena Hamzah of Swansea University says meat- and animal-themed phrases will slowly be abandoned as awareness of animal cruelty and the negative effects of raising animals for meat production - on both the climate and the human body - grows. People will become less likely to use meat/animal metaphors in order not to offend sensitive vegan ears, Hamzah says. PETA, of course, is all for speeding up the process when it comes to rewriting...
  • PC police making Halloween really scary

    American Thinker ^ | October 30, 2018 | John David Powell
    At the risk of sounding like an old codger sitting on the porch shouting, “Hey you kids, get off my lawn,” today’s Halloween vibe just ain’t like it used to be. Halloweens of more than half a century ago in my little town in Illinois were not confused with politics and political correctness. It was a night when tiny ghosts and goblins, spooks and spirits, fairies and firemen ran up to doors and waited for tricks or treats to land in their paper grocery sacks. Kids stayed close to home, except for short drives across town to scare relatives or...

    After the mother grizzly bear finished mauling him, after he rubbed the bear spray from his eyes and hiked a half-mile cradling a broken arm, Bob Legasa found himself under attack from a meaner, more unpredictable and entirely more vicious animal: online commenters. “I have never been so threatened in my life,” said Legasa, a Hayden, Idaho, resident. “There are literally hundreds of threats wishing that I would die. Wishing that I would die a slow, painful death. It came, from all people, the peaceful grass-eating vegan community.” Legasa was attacked by a mother grizzly bear Oct. 13 while bowhunting...

    The Lid ^ | 10/22/18 | Jeff Dunetz
    When I was a child, my Mom used to make me have a glass of milk before I left for school in the morning, and more at bedtime. At the time she said it was healthy and built strong bones. But according to PETA, she was turning me into a white supremacist. For those of you who just did a Danny Thomas “spit take” of your milk, or who laughed a sip of milk through your nose, allow me to assure you this isn’t an attempt to milk some laughs for the site—it is true. Wait a blooming second! People...
  • PETA: Cow's milk a symbol of white supremacy

    PETA: Cow's milk a symbol of white supremacy Zac Self 11:24 AM, Oct 21, 2018 5 hours ago According to PETA’s latest press release, cow’s milk is a symbol of white supremacy. In a statement, the animal rights group links the dairy industry’s treatment of the cows to the concept of white supremacy. “Aside from ‘lactose-tolerant’ white supremacists, cow’s milk really is the perfect drink of choice for all (even unwitting) supremacists, since the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings,” the organization said in part. “PETA is trying to wake people up to the implications of choosing...

    PETA has claimed that milk is the drink of ‘white domination’ and is used as a symbol by white supremacists. They are the largest animal rights organisation in the world and according to a blog post from October 2017, drinking milk is “the perfect drink of choice for all (even unwitting) supremacists. ” The international organisation retweeted the blog post on 19 October 2018, restating their assertion that “symbols of (a glass of) milk are also used by ‘extreme right-wing people’.”

    For a full week, a big black banner was posted from a sidewalk in Berkeley, California. “OCCUPY WHOLE FOODS”, it declared in large, white block letters. But the protesters who created it, a group from the animal rights activist organization Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), were not actually able to do much occupying. Just days before a weeklong protest scheduled for late September, in which the activists had planned to call attention to alleged animal welfare violations by suppliers to Whole Foods’ parent company, Amazon, the Berkeley store filed a restraining order. “We are not allowed to even step foot in...

"Just like humans, crabs feel pain and fear, have unique personalities, and value their own lives," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a release.

PETA says wanted to show the animal crackers free Animal rights group has been protesting circuses for years Mondelez agreed and started working on a redesign. In the meantime, the crackers’ namesake circus — Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey — folded for good. The 146-year-old circus, which had removed elephants from its shows in 2016 because of pressure from PETA and others, closed down in May 2017 due to slow ticket sales.

    Thus, rather than let animals at least live in “no-kill shelters”, it created “kill shelters” to relieve allegedly suffering animals from suffering in a “no-kill shelter” by killing them.  PETA supports kill shelters and has one at its headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia.In 2017 alone, almost two-thirds of the nearly 1000 dogs, and 80% of the nearly 1500 cats that PETA brought into its shelter were killed.  Those numbers are actually an improvement from 2005 to 2012, where 90% to 97.3% of animals were put down.So zealous is PETA to murder animals that it stole a 9-year-old’s pet Chihuahua because they...

    Los Angelians eager to fill their fall wardrobes with fur may want to stock up now, as city council members have introduced a proposal banning its sale. If the measure passes, the City of Angles would be the largest American metropolis to bar the sale and production of the controversial product. On August 1, over a dozen animal welfare activists met with Councilman Paul Koretz at City Hall to discuss the issue, the L.A. Times reports. If the proposal, written by Koertz and fellow council member Bob Blumenfield, were to pass, L.A. would join West Hollywood, Berkeley and San Francisco in instating...

    A Kentucky woman is facing harsh criticism on social media after photographs circulated on Twitter showing her posing with a giraffe she killed on a South African safari last year. A tweet last month from @africlandpost showed photobig-game hunter Tess Thompson Talley exulting with the dead giraffe. “White american savage who is partly a neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe courtesy of South Africa stupidity,” the tweet said. It named Talley and added: “Please share.” Some celebrities joined the criticism, with comedian Ricky Gervais tweeting: “What’s 16 feet tall and has a c**t on...

Joe Heck received criticism this week after he posted a picture on Instagram of himself posing next to a slain zebra with the caption, “Great start to safari — two off my list: Zebra and Black Wildebeast.” But Heck’s apparent affinity for big-game hunting in South Africa didn’t just upset some in the public. The former Nevada Senate candidate earned a lashing from an organization he lobbied on behalf of this spring: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

    PARIS — French butchers say they’ve had enough. Not only must they confront media coverage of the “vegan way of life,” now they say they are under assault. After a series of small but unprecedented incidents, the butchers federation says its members need protection from militants who have broken windows, thrown fake blood and sprayed graffiti on their shops. In a letter to the French Interior Ministry, the butchers wrote that “physical, verbal, and moral violence” against them was “neither more nor less than a form of terrorism.” The letter may be a touch hyperbolic — and French vegan organizations...
