Look, I appreciate the whole PETA schtick of being against animal testing and fur coats and all that. No, really. I don’t buy anything but free range eggs, I don’t eat meat and yada yada yada. I get it. But this kind of lefty looney shit is what gives us all such a bad name that people like Rush Limbaugh can make a very decent living mocking the hell out of everything we stand for.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has suggested that a famous ice cream company replace cow’s milk with human breast milk in its products.
Seriously, I don’t know what smartypants PR hack came up with the idea of running this, but the fact that it made NBC’s NY affiliate tells me it worked — and that’s bad. Bad for PETA’s own cause, bad for any cause that can be lumped in with theirs. Anyone out there genuinely trying to combat the atrocious conditions facing cattle in industrial farming is now going to be tainted with the “breat milk” idiocy.
Thanks for nothing, PETA, don’t bother with the sad-eyed puppy fundraising request to my house this year…
