Most people have issues that are near and dear to their hearts. Whether it be protecting the unborn, the environment, the right to own a gun or free speech issues, everyone has things that bring out the passion and fire.
Fine. That’s great. Being passionate about a cause or an issue enough to volunteer to make a difference on that particular topic is an admirable thing, whether you and I agree with someone’s stance or not.
But what people don’t like and appreciate is being told by fanatics – on the right or the left – that if they don’t agree with them on that issue, they’re a fascist, nazi, snowflake or any other number of names with negative connations.
Oh yeah, people also tend to get annoyed when told to do something by a fanatical group of zealots always trying to shove their politically-driven agenda down the throats of those who just want to be left alone.
Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA. These people are the worst of the worst.
Much like the idiots too lazy to return their carts to the cart return and mimes, PETA members are the scum of the earth.
PETA is always trying to force their moronic agenda and values on others who want nothing to do with them, like most of the population. Another reason, among many others that makes PETA just a horrible, horrible organization is that they actually believe human beings and animals are equal in their value to society.
Yes, they honestly believe a healthy 30-year-old man or woman in the prime of their life is of equal value as that of a mangy neighborhood mutt who eats his feces. And having such a messed up point of view, PETA believes our language should reflect this.
They believe calling a human being an “animal” or something similar helps to further “the myth that human beings are superior to other animals.”
Sounds stupid, right? Well, that’s PETA.
