Thank you so much for writing this article about PETA. It's really about time that people were told what is really going on at PETA. It's such a shame that a charity that has and still continues to do so much good for animals and exposing cruelty is also engaging in cruelty as well. Ingrid Newkirk's ideas about animal welfare are so far outside the mainstream, it seems like she'd rather just kill cats and dogs instead of rehoming them simply because she doesn't think they ought to be pets. Well, the reality is that they ARE pets, and they need human help to survive. We domesticated them and we owe them our involvement in their lives.
PETA is such a mixed bag, on the one hand, you have cute kids promoting great things like veganism, but on the other, you have almost all cats and dogs taken into the PETA shelter being euthanized, even the adoptable ones, and carcasses being thrown into dumpsters like trash. One simply can't cancel out the other. All the cute kids in the world can't whitewash the fact that PETA takes in cats and dogs and doesn't even attempt to find them homes. Even charities that operate on a shoestring budget are showing better successes, and PETA's budget is enormous. There is just no excuse. It's time for people to pull their monetary support of PETA until they clean up their act and get in line with the animal rights mainstream who want to see adoptable animals rehomed, not euthanized.
Think they have these discussions in China, or India, or any country in Africa? Probably not. You know why? Because no one in those countries would EVER entertain the thought that they should be displaced by some other racial demographic in the interest of "feelgood-ism". Only here, in the west, where we have the luxury of decadence and complacency, have we been cajoled into this bizarre mindset that now white people must lie down like doormats in order to have all others walk upon us because of our success on this planet through the ages.
Why aren't we seeing this whole diversity message imposed on places like fundamentalist Islamist Saudi Arabia, or Mexico, with it's militarized southern border, for instance? If we're all so equal, why isn't anyone at HSU clamoring for a chance to attend a college in sub Saharan Africa somewhere? Why are people emigrating from the third world into the first world? Hey, we're all so equal, right? That means, of course, that you should be able to find the exact same quality of civilization in ANY other country of the world as you would here in the west, right? How come that's not so, I mean, we're so equal and all....
