An odd circumstance in which I find myself inadvertently agreeing with PETA

25 Nov

PETA for some reason opposes the U.S. presidential turkey pardon, which you think they wouldn’t, instead calling for all turkeys to be pardoned, but no, they just oppose pardoning the two:

The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals tried their best, but the White House turkey pardoning will go on as scheduled in Wednesday in the Rose Garden before a bank of cameras, journalists, amused officials and cautious turkey handlers. The activist group previously reached out to First Daughters Malia and Sasha, pleading with them to become vegans and intercede on behalf of the pair of turkeys, who hail from Ohio. The group considers the ceremony offensive, and a promotion for poultry breeders – though the White House says it’s intended as a seasonal greeting for the nation as well.

Then there’s the question of turkey rights.

“You come from a family whose members don’t hesitate to fight for those who have been oppressed by standing up for civil rights, women’s rights, and LGBT rights. This year, we would like to ask you to lend your powerful and influential voices to another group whose voices often go unheard: animals,” asked Rachelle Owen, in her letter to the young ladies.

Whatever… (Notice how they want the daughters to force their dad to change his mind; PETA opposes parental authority…)

At any rate, despite PETA’s stance, I unabashedly gave my illegitimate foreigner rant against this stupid relatively recent American Presidential custom of pardoning turkeys last year, here, for those of you who may have missed it.

If God didn’t want us to eat turkeys, He wouldn’t have made them out of meat! 😉

They should all be slaughtered and eaten, and not left to die a slow lingering natural death. (Wikipedia notes that Popcorn, the turkey that won 2013’s social media vote for pardoning (though the other bird was also saved, making the vote pointless – just like a real election, har har), died this past summer of heatstroke. Wouldn’t it have been more humane to have slaughtered it and fed some family with its carcass? And as I noted last year, all of the other turkeys Obama pardoned since 2010 were dead or euthanized… What a waste of food…)


The proper, rightful fate of all turkeys; wasting food is a sin!

Meanwhile, in Seattle, the prog mayor recently pardoned a tofurky, rather than a turkey.

Now, notwithstanding the leftist posturing, that’s actually a far, far more sensible pardoning. In fact, all tofurky should be pardoned; no human should be forced to eat such an unnatural abomination; it’s an ethical thing, humans shouldn’t be treated that way! 😉

Real men eat meat!

    Yes, our prog mayor not only pardoned a Tofu-turkey, he apologized to the post-Ferguson rioters here for not stopping the police from pepper-spraying them.

    SInce Seattle is like 1000 miles from Missouri, I don’t know why the verdict was a Seattle issue; but progs will be progs…

    On the subject of the Ferguson riots, some Holiday humor:

    “All the other turkeys Obama pardoned were either dead or euthanized…what a waste of food.”

    Which seems to be a excellent metaphor for the Welfare State in general.

    Even for a Seattle left-liberal, that’s just plain mangina-pathetic.

    @ Eric: He felt he had to pronounce something about Ferguson? What an twit…

    That is funny. 🙂

    True, the welfare state indeed is like that. 🙂

    @ feeriker: Totally.

    Not only did fag/prog Seattle mayor Murray pronounce something on Ferguson: he actually publically said that Michael Brown was ‘murdered’ and that the verdict was a travesty of justice. He also expressed sympathy to the rioters (both here in Seattle and out in Missouri) as justifiably feeling ‘outraged.’

    Murray, BTW, is also a strong gun-control advocate; so he’s also against anybody defending themselves against these thugs in general.

    I think it’s got to be the drugs. Pardoning tofu is exactly the kind of thing dope-heads would applaud, and there lots of them here.
