Last month in Washington, a twelve-year-old girl and her friends spent their Saturday afternoon protesting outside a Kentucky Fried Chicken. After watching a video narrated by Pamela Anderson, the child’s mother explained, “Now she and her friends will only eat free-range chickens.”
Having earned 3,000 “PETA Street Team” points for organizing a demonstration against KFC, that seventh-grade activist can now cash them in for a “Meat Is Murder” stencil, or save up for a Skinny Bitch In The Kitch cookbook(10,000 points).
Seem a little shady? We think so.
In 2004, we released “Your Kids, PETA’s Pawns,” a report warning parents about the various ways People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) lures children into radical activism. Since then, the number of young “animal rights rebels” has exploded, and we’ve updated our report to include the latest statistics, graphic propaganda campaigns, and examples of Peta2 “DIY Activism”.
As PETA boasts in its 2007 Annual Review, over 800,000 young, impressionable members are now enrolled in its Youth Outreach Program (Peta2). From violent children’s comic books entitled “Your Mommy Kills Animals!” to its “Fishing Hurts” and “Milk Sucks” campaigns, this multi-million dollar animal rights group is still a menace to children of all ages.
