If an insane person goes insane do they become sane?

A PETA person once told me that instead of animals for medical research, that we should use prisoners.

I didn't bother with her long enough to ask for details like if these prisoners would be asked to volunteer or be forced and if this would only apply to violent offenders... but I guess all of those possibilities are still pretty unethical.

These people are loons. But perhaps they could be useful for medical research.

They flew the coop years ago. I doubt that any of them have any idea what the economic implications would be if any of their goals were actually realized.

The incident caused Kim's sister Khloé, who has posed for PETA's anti-fur campaigns, to break from PETA. She wrote on her website: "I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won't be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise."

Since it's well-known that PETA does pretty much nothing but attention-whoring, bullying and harassment, Khloe is a complete moron for not knowing this in advance and/or she really meant to say, "bullying and harassing people I know is NEVER a solution..."

I stopped caring about PETA around the time I learned their one of their top members was taking pig derived insulin and gave such a non-answer and "I'm doing good work, so I am the exception" BS.

I can accept the massive kill number they rack up each year at their shelters, because a lot of animals are not able to be rehabilitated, and many are sick, and resources are limited, even for PETA, but I'd love to see some of their money diverted from pointless ads and propaganda and put towards animal care; even if it meant less naked PETA ladies.

Crusaders do not consider the efficacy of their means nor the practical impact of achieving their goals, and often do not really know the rationale behind either. That's why they are crusaders. Nearly anyone who gives it half a thought would immediately cease being a crusader and ratchet things down about 30 notches.

Gary Francione, a law professor at Rutgers University... doesn't believe that the animal welfare group goes far enough. He is an "abolitionist" who believes that the killing of animals for any reason is wrong.

He's a pro-life fundamentalist then.

I wonder if his beliefs extend to all animals.

I can get on board with a ton of what PETA is supposed to stand for--much like I can get on board with what conservatism is supposed to be in the United States. So often these people evolved as a cause, then into exactly what they hate or are protesting.

PETA hasn't gone all Earth Liberation Front, where they are willing to kill people to save animals, but I'd be really surprised if many of their members wouldn't be on board with that idea.

There is that distinct possibility. The show "Futurama" once made a crack that PETA would one day try to force vegetarianism on animal carnivores, such as lions, which in turn wipes out the species through starvation.

I have a very hard time being around people who blindly follow blatant propaganda. Recently, my best friend's wife has become enamored with PETA. It's becoming difficult to view her as an intelligent individual with the decisions she's making, and the skewed stances she's lapping up.

Blegh.

I need a 'losing friends to activism' support group :(

From the quotes in the article it looks like they do, including humans, conveniently giving him an easy out so he doesn't have to actually back up his belief with anything substantial. This is the lamest kind of activism. Activism to the point of being mere words, with no action of significance behind them.

As a believer in the humane treatment of animals, I have to disagree - PETA, initially, did quite a bit of good in the early 80's.

However, once they reaped the publicity and funding from that good, they then went nuts in the mid-90's, and just went deeper and deeper into their own form of insanity. Much like the Republican Party of late, PETA's own extremists took over the guidance and direction of the organization, and they went from "the ethical treatment of animals" to "animals are people," advocating an extreme lifestyle - vegan diet, no pets, no zoos, no "animal slavery" of any sort - that has little basis in nature or reality.

PETA is, for lack of a better word, insane. Fund the Humane Society, and treat PETA as yet another group of extremist terrorists. I'd be OK with that.

Isn't it often the case that serial killers start off with smaller creatures before switching to human prey? PETA is already willing to kill animals in the name of 'saving' animals; that plus their already-in-progress exploitation of women would seem to indicate that eventually killing humans is not entirely out of the question...

I'll give that a 3rd. They were one of the wacko groups that tried to block Idaho/Montana's wolf hunt. Luckly, they were shot down the the 9th Circuit Court of all places. There are some good folks out there -- but you need to do your homework, folks.

I should clarify, just in case. There are those who do consider the efficacy of their means and the practical impact of truly realizing their goal, but just don't care because they believe the end/goal is worth any price... those are zealots. Crusaders can come down on their own, or be taken down once their hypocrisy is exposed. Zealots will constantly double-down; any criticism, exposure, failure, blowback, etc. to them are all proof that they're right, they're fighting against a truly evil and powerful force and need to push harder than ever.

Actually, the links between PETA and ELF (how can you really take a group seriously when their acronym is friggin ELF) are pretty well known - there have been quite a few "donations" to ELF from the head of PETA and several co-op publicity ops.

If you want to donate money to help animals, give it to a local rescue group. If you give them $50, they'll use it to buy $50 worth of food or vet care. They won't spend it on administrative expenses or fund raising. It will all go directly to actually help the animals.

"Even if animal tests produced a cure for AIDS, we'd be against it." - PETA president and co-founder Ingrid Newkirk, in the September 1989 issue of Vogue, Sep 1989

Yeah, that's the diabetic who uses insulin. The one who wants the rest of us to die from diabetes and AIDS.

Peta has loudly and consistently lobbied against science and the development of life-saving cures. They're as much to blame for the misery and death of sick humans as, say Jenny McCarthy. They're like the "pro-lifers" who bomb abortion clinics, willing to kill human beings in the name of saving lives.

They're only a hairsbreadth away from being a terrorist organization.

That's without even getting into the number of animals PETA kills, or the way the exploit women to "protect" animals.

At this point, they're more like a false flag operation or parody of an animal right's organization than anything else.
