According to Fox News, PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, are suing SeaWorld for enslavement.
SAN DIEGO – A federal court is being asked to grant constitutional rights to five killer whales who perform at marine parks — an unprecedented and perhaps quixotic legal action that is nonetheless likely to stoke an ongoing, intense debate at America’s law schools over expansion of animal rights.
Do these idiots realize at all what they do to their own credibility every time they pull one of these stunts? Honestly, no one outside of Hollyweird or a few liberal moonbats on college campuses actually pays attention to anything PETA has to say in the first place. Worse, when there are real abuses (Michael Vick anyone?) their radical stands completely discredit them when they could actually accomplish something.
Even more annoying is that most of their stands are simply stupid. Much like the radical environmental lobby with whom they are closely allied they haven’t really thought through the consequences of their positions. For instance, if we all went vegan tomorrow, what would happen to all the beef and milk cattle? With no commercial reason to keep them alive why would farmers pay to feed them?
As usual with the moonbats, it’s not about logic it’s all about how they feel. By suing SeaWorld they get to feel self-righteous, without actually having to accomplish anything, which is all they or their ilk at the OWS protests actually want.
