PETA Can’t Be That Dumb!

PETA-mon. Gotta be delusional!

Every time I think an extremist group can’t get any stupider, I run into something like this.  PETA, closely linked with animal terrorist organizations, apparently thinks that Pokemon are real.  Yes, you heard me right, PETA has released a web-based parody of the popular Pokemon video game series that tells people to “free ’em all”.

The PETA website describes the game as “For generations, Pokémon have suffered at the hands of their cruel trainers. Help PETA free Pikachu and his Pokémon friends as they struggle for Pokémon liberation!”

Um guys… Pokemon don’t really exist.  You do know that, right?

Well, you never can be sure with this crowd, they’re not all that bright after all.  Yes, I know it says on their website that Pokemon is an analogy for animal cruelty, specifically circus animal cruelty, but come on.  PETA is doing nothing but cruising for popularity on the back of Nintendo’s newly released Pokemon: Black & White 2.  I guess they haven’t been in the headlines enough recently so they had to come up with a publicity stunt.

Evil tanuki-murdering Mario!

This is nothing too new for PETA though, back in 2011, they released a “Mario Kills Tanooki” campaign, asserting that “in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it’s OK to wear fur.”  No guys, in real life, tanuki are Japanese mythological animals and Mario puts on a tanuki suit in Super Mario Bros. 3.

The sad fact is, PETA is an extremist animal-rights organization that really doesn’t care about animals.  They have a giant shelter at their headquarters in Norfolk, VA, but of the animals turned in there, more than 70% are killed.  Animal lovers my ass.  If you want the real story on PETA, they don’t live animals, they actually hate people.  While they don’t make it that obvious to their potential contributors, the fact is, they want to end all use of all animals, under all circumstances, by humans, with the ultimate goal being the extinction of humanity entirely.

Maybe these people should hang out with the crazy anti-natalists.  Seems like they’d be a good match.

  1. I agree. The same can be said of Greenpeace. Now for a side track. I personally feel as a animal lover myself that it is more humane to euthanize the abandoned animals than to keep them locked up inside a little cage. A right to die for animals so to speak humans included. Unrelated to topic but you might like this

  2. It's not like Peta needs much discrediting, but I do love to see you going after the loonier of the loony left. Thanks for helping keep my house clean, it gets to be a real chore sometimes!

    Seriously though, they make me sick. There are real, valid ethical concerns, and real science-based debates to be had about humnas' responsibility to animals and the rest of the natural world. There are real discussions about meat eating vs. vegetarianism to be had, but both sides make the argument unbearable with smugness. There are real concerns about animal mistreatment, but groups like Peta make a mockery of it. They would have the concept of keeping pets outlawed, yet keeping pets is one of the ways parents can teach kids about true responsibility, compassion, respect for life and awareness of death. I believe that keeping pets makes for better kids, and that there is nothing necessarily wrong with domesticating animals. Peta can kiss my dog's ass for all I care, I'm pretty sure his life is better than it would have been in any other circumstance, because of me and our relationship to each other. Seems like a happy little fucker, anyway….

    1. Hey, I go after everyone, not just the loonies on the left but the crazies on the right. I'm an equal opportunity ass-kicker. A lot of these groups have two agendas. One, the public agenda that they're open and honest about, that's generally palatable and, so long as people don't think about it too much, seems reasonable. The second one is the crazy agenda, the one that no one in their right mind would ever agree with, the extremist nonsense that, if it became widely known, would lead to the financial doom of the organization. Unfortunately, the American public is typically too stupid to look further than the public agenda so they fork over money based on feel-good platitudes and never bother to find out what the group really does with the money.
