Don't get me wrong. I love animals. I want them to be treated in a non abusive way. I don't like seeing videos of pigs drowning in their own blood for more than three minutes. I hate that so many animals have to be put to sleep because there's no space for them or because they're too aggressive. I'm an animal lover. And I genuinely agree with the statement Ingrid Newkirk said, sometimes the kindest thing to do in a situation with an animal is to put it to sleep.
But the problem is, you can't have it both ways. You can't be the leader of PETA, crying out that animals are being used as slaves, that they deserve complete freedom, and even financially supporting an arsonist that burns down animal research buildings demanding animal research to be put to an end when even your senior vice president depends on insulin injections to live.
There's just so much that could be said about PETA - and not only them, the Animal Liberation Front as well.
I'm not an uncaring person, I'm not unkind, I don't hate animals and I definitely don't want to see them hurt. But when the biggest groups of people advocating the safety of animals condone terrorism and fear mongering, there's something wrong.
Additionally, watch Penn & Teller's Bullshit!. Season 2 has an interesting episode focused entirely on PETA. It'll give you something to think about.
