PETA and a case of the Crazies!

Them bitches be crazy.

So apparently PETA sent a letter to Ben and Jerry’s requesting that they stop all use of cow milk in their ice cream and switch to breast milk. Yep. Breast Milk for everyone. Soak that in.

Don’t worry, Ben and Jerry’s issued the following statement back: ““We applaud PETA’s novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother’s milk is best used for her child.”

So I get it PETA, a cows milk is for baby cows right? Here is the deal…cows, when they produce milk NEED to be milked otherwise they run the risk of infection and eventual death. If they don’t have a calf their to do it for them…why would this be an issue as long as they are being treated ethically? Most dairy cows – though kept constantly pregnant – are given space to walk around, to live to be happy, the worst that happens is that they need to be milked three times a day, which doesn’t bother the cow, it HELPS the cow to release the milk. I know, permanently pregnant must be “uncomfortable” but it isn’t being locked in cages, it isn’t being cut open and tortured. This is why I don’t get PETA, its totally an all or nothing issue with everything animal related.

The activist group got the idea from a restaurant in Switzerland called Storchen. They are unveiling a new menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75% human breast milk. I know, humans are the only creatures that drink milk passed the point of infancy and they are the only species to drink another species milk…but isn’t it nutritious? I mean, you can pretty much link anything to cancer, obesity, diabetes…etc but you cant just pretend things are packed full of vitamins and nutrients our bodies need/use! My favorite is where they say cow milk can lead to autism in children. I mean…fucking seriously? Do you think the American public is that stupid? Really? Causing AUTISM?! I guess the genetics that cause it don’t really matter because little Sally would have been fine had she not had that glass of cow milk every night before bed before she was 3! Oh TO SHAME!

Personally I believe that they are basically asking Ben and Jerry’s to shut down. If they even considered using breast milk the demand for their ice cream would plummet and the costs of human milk as opposed to cow would eventually drive them out of business. It’s not a logical request. I guess you cant win with them. I just think that PETA should take a step back and reassess their organization. You get more bees with honey – not red paint or frantic crying protests. Start small, stay logical PETA, keep fighting the good fight that animals cant fight themselves. Just know that you’re doing it all wrong and you would be more helpful and effective if you thought of actual plausible business steps. For example: you could have asked Ben and Jerry’s to start to develop a new line of ice creams that uses human breast milk – as opposed to demanding they change ALL their ice cream over. How about you don’t berate celebrities who wear fur and make fun of their eating disorders or personal lives – that really just takes away your credibility as an organization. Oh and I know – how about you end the hypocrisy and stop killing more animals than the rest of us combined?

You fucking fuckers.

PS: Dont think for a fucking second that cow wouldn’t eat you if it had the chance and it was a carnivore. It’s called the food chain.

PSS: I’m all for the ethical treatment of animals – do not get me wrong, the meat industry disgusts me and I would be more likely to get in and support the cause if there were better organizations to support or if PETA wasn’t in cohorts with the ALF (Animal Liberation Front) and the ELF (Earth Liberation Front) – terrorist organizations. Yeah – that.just.happened – I called those guys TERRORISTS.

PSSS: Terrorism is defined as they systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion. No overreacting, no melodrama – I could launch into a list of all the things they’ve done but you can just look that up on Wikipedia, cant you? Prime example – At an event funded by several animal rights groups – PETA’s vegan campaigns director Bruce Friedrich said: “If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then of course we’re going to be blowing things up and smashing windows. … I think it’s a great way to bring about animal liberation, considering the level of suffering, the atrocities. I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks that fund them, exploded tomorrow.” Cool, so he doesn’t really consider all the human lives lost in that argument…sounds a little like a terrorist. Just saying.

PSSSS: If PETA keeps comparing the plight of animals to Slaves and the Under Ground Railroad, the Jews during the Holocaust, and the French during the French RevolutionĀ  – I’m going to stab someone. It’s ludicrous and absolutely offensive to all those that died in those situations. Connection or no connection, you should be a ashamed.

PSSSSS: Ok, its gotta stay light. Here’s my message:

  1. I am Jewish, and I find the connection between the holocaust and the plight and torture of animals errily familiar, I am not offended, but wish that more people would see how wrong what we are doing to the animals realy is. If it was wrong for people to do that to us it is also wrong for them to do it to innocent animals.
