People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is complaining to police about the reception their sickening “Holocaust on Your Plate” exhibit received in North Dakota (whose state beverage is milk). According to the animal rights group, rowdy protestors vandalized a display, causing more than $500 in damage. They surrounded the event organizer, hurled nasty epithets at him, and even threatened his life.
While we by no means endorse property destruction or threats, it is our unfortunate duty to point out that PETA does. The violent animal rights group Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), whose modus operandi is harassing, threatening, and physically attacking its targets, has PETA’s full endorsement. Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA, told the Boston Herald: “More power to SHAC if they can get someone’s attention.”
Visit our ActivistCash profile of PETA, and you’ll find that it gave $7,500 to Fran Stephanie Trutt, who tried to murder the president of a medical research company. It gave $5,000 to Josh Harper, who attacked Native Americans on a whale hunt by throwing smoke bombs, shooting flares, and spraying their faces with chemical fire extinguishers.
And PETA gave convicted arsonist Rodney Coronado more than $70,000. The same Coronado told hundreds of young people at American University: “I think [food producers] should appreciate that we’re only targeting their property. Because frankly I think it’s time to start targeting them.” Just a few weeks later Newkirk called Coronado “a fine young man.”
