When a person, or group, claims the "high moral ground," I expect their actions to reflect what they are claiming. And yet, everyone falls short. I mean EVERYONE. They'll claim Superior morals, superior intelligence, superior strength, Or just claim "Complete superiority." What I read today in the USA TODAY online really confirms what I say, and proves these people are dumb as rocks...or doorknobs. Take your pick!
It's really no surprise, then, that the group I'm about to mention (Which uses the term "Ethical" in its name) tries to claim the high ground...and lets their double standards show in their ads, their statements, and their actions!
I refer, of course, to PETA.
They tell you to "SPAY OR NEUTER" your pet. That's CASTRATION. Or Vivisection, take your choice of word. And yet, they don't want you to eat meat, hunt, or fish. The obvious problem: They claim "Moral Superiority," but do not live up to their own standards!
What brings me to THIS, however, is their own stupidity as reported by USA TODAY. They plan on putting up a sign not far from where Tiger Woods lives...they were going to use his picture on the board saying "Too much sex is bad: Spay or Neuter your pet." While they decided to avoid using Tiger's Picture (He COULD sue for unauthorized use of an endorsement) they chose someone else...Gov. Sanford.
GIVE ME A BREAK, GUYS. You want "Ethical Treatment of Animals" but you won't treat your FELLOW HUMAN ANIMAL WITH THE SAME CONSIDERATION YOU WANT FOR THE OTHER ANIMALS?
PETA doesn't have a claim to "Ethics" of any sort. They band together for a cause for the purpose of promoting what I consider to be tasteless and crude, and verges on Threats and Terrorism use to gain their results.
We need to consider our fellow human animal before we can consider other animals. If you can't consider your own stupidity in PETA, you got nothing...no brain, and not a leg to stand on.
PETA: The Common man's Al_Quada, I guess.
That's the fact: AS I SEE IT!
