Animal Rights Activists
Thugs Promoting Narcissism, Intimidation, Ignorance &
As I have stated before, I have found Animal Activists to be quite entertaining. They are first to throw bombs, intimidate and use harassment and violence on other people for doing what they perceive to be animal cruelty. Yet when one turns the tables and looks at what animal activists say and do all one can respond with is "Can you say hypocrisy?"
Here are some incidents that I have encountered with animal activists:
I attended a City Council Meeting in Oakland, California a couple of years ago that was reviewing a youth program for under-privileged kids in the Oakland flatlands that centered around getting these kids involved in caring for horses and cattle in order to keep them out of trouble. This program was called WildCat Canyon Youth Program and put on by a couple of Cowboys from the Black Cowboys Association in Oakland. The Cowboys started to teach these kids how to ride horses which led to them participate in local junior rodeo events. This program kept a tremendous amount of kids off the streets and gave them something positive and rewarding. A lot of these kids who would have otherwise been pulled into the life of street gangs, drugs and violence did well in school and went on to college. A great success story. But lo and behold, the local PETA group found out that the kids were using steers to rope and ride. They along with the very rich people who lived nearby the stables where program took place decided to take it to the City Council and get the program stopped. The rich people who lived nearby did not want the flatland kids near their million dollar houses and the PETA people wanted the steer riding and roping stopped. Who cares about the kids - right? So two of the PETA members showed up to talk about cruelty to the steers wearing leather shoes, leather belts and carrying a leather purse. Go figure. All of us there who showed up to give support to the kids were in stitches. These animal activists had no clue that the leather belts, purses, shoes, etc come from dead cows. Hypocrisy? You decide... On top of hypocrisy, the PETA people believed that the animals' rights were more important than the underprivileged kids. Go figure.....Just an update: This program was taking place at one of the last riding stables located in the Oakland Hills. This riding stable had been willed to the City of Oakland by the original owners and was to be kept as a riding stable. However, greed must have won a stunning victory, because the City of Oakland decided to demolish the riding stables and build million dollar homes on it.
A couple of PETA people showed up to protest our rodeo a few years ago. Because the first amendment applies to hypocritical animal rights activists, we have to let them distribute their literature at the entrance gate. Again, these PETA people were wearing leather shoes, belts and had leather purses. They arrived in a car that had leather interior. We also caught them eating hamburgers. So here we have animal rights activists protesting that rodeo is cruel to animals while wearing leather apparel and eating hamburgers. Again go figure...
A few years ago, right before the weekend of our rodeo, a local PETA person wrote a letter to the newspaper advising people not to attend our rodeo because it was cruel to animals. In this letter this PETA individual stated that leather straps are tied around the bull's genitals in order to make the bull buck. Now, the First Amendment does guarantee one the right to freedom of speech, but it doesn't guarantee that when one exercises this freedom that they may end up sounding like a total imbecile. Anyone who could attempt to tie leather straps around a bull's genitals has about a 99% chance of getting killed. No one in their right mind would ever, ever touch a bull's genitals. Furthermore, leather straps would not make a bull buck. It would make the bull furious, which would cause the bull to attack whoever was making him furious. Only an animal rights activists could be so ignorant to even make this claim.

But one of the most classic cases of hypocritical animal rights' activists has got to be the one below. Not only is this an example of classic hypocrisy, but the underlying message is one of their tendencies to socialism, fascism and violence:
A fur coat giveaway sponsored by the animal rights group the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, turned into a battle of the have-nots and have-nots Monday outside a Detroit homeless shelter.
PETA, the group known for splashing red paint on fur-wearers and stripping naked to protest furs, gave away 25 fur coats to homeless women. But the group's goodwill effort turned bad when dozens of homeless people began showing up at the downtown office of COTS, Coalition of Temporary Shelters, expecting to receive a coat after hearing about giveaways of thousands of furs on television.
Cheryl Johnson, chief executive of COTS, said TV's misleading report had the shelter's phones "ringing off the hook." It also put the shelter in the awkward position of saying no to needy people.
A small, angry crowd gathered outside the shelter, where inside, a hand-picked group of women flipped through a rack of fur coats PETA had brought. They modeled them in front of a small mirror in the shelter director's office, smiling when they found one they liked.
They left with full-length minks, fox jackets and rabbit wraps worth hundreds of dollars.
As the event went on, the crowd outside got larger as word spread about the giveaway. It got angrier as each new coat owner passed by.
They demanded to know why they too couldn't get a free fur from PETA, which held the event with the dual purpose of keeping homeless people warm and bringing publicity to its cause. "Don't we deserve coats too?" asked Jacqueline Williams, who is homeless, as she stood outside the shelter.
With the tension increasing, the coats went into black plastic bags. Escorts walked the women out, and there was no damage or injury.
Johnson and other workers said they sympathized with those left out. But, as is the case in every city that's been visited by PETA, the coats go only to hand-selected homeless people in a controlled situation. That prevents a chaotic run on the garments and attempts to ensure that people who deserve the coats get them.
The recipients chosen for Monday's giveaway all were enrolled in COTS' temporary housing programs, paid rent on time and stayed off drugs.
To hand the coats out to just anyone could bring more trouble than help to recipients, said Robyn Smith, a director at COTS.
"A lot of these people are still in crisis," she said. Case workers don't want the coats going to people who might sell them for drugs or alcohol.
Aside from the conflict, the recipients, the shelter director and the organizers from PETA, which brought the coats from its headquarters in Norfolk, Va., saw the giveaway as a good thing.
"I'm very grateful for this," said Barbara Dorr, a resident at COTS. "I understand what they're doing, too. I'm an advocate for the animals, too."
The free furs came to Detroit as part of PETA's nearly 10-year-old fur coat program. PETA has collected nearly 10,000 coats from people who decided they no longer wanted to wear furs, or from people who inherited them.
"The homeless are the only people who have an excuse for wearing fur," said Lisa Franzetta, a campaign coordinator for PETA. The group argues that the fur trade is cruel to animals and bad for the environment with its factory farms.
Monday was PETA's first fur coat giveaway in Detroit, but Franzetta said the group would come back if asked."This is a way of turning a negative into a positive," Franzetta said.
