The batshit crazy animal advocates group PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) stayed true to form suggesting the life of a wild animal is as important as a human life. This is a seriously twisted way of thinking, as it is normal for a species to favour its own over all others, not the other way around.
On December 13th, PETA â€śSpecial Projectsâ€ť Division Manager Alicia Woempner lived up to the groupâ€™s reputation for bizarre extremism when she sent a letter scolding 18-year-old hunter and bear mauling victim Camille Bomboy. In the dispatch, Woempner urges the recovering teen to â€śreflect on [the] incidentâ€ť and â€śabandon hunting.â€ť
Earlier in the week, Bomboy had been the victim of a vicious bear attack while hunting on her familyâ€™s farm, suffering bites to her arms and a severe injury that almost resulted in the loss of an ear. The attack was only halted when Bomboyâ€™s stepfather frightened off the bear by firing a rifle.
Throughout the letter, Woempner equates human beings with animals, as is characteristic of PETA. Woempner writes, â€śThis seems to be a good opportunity to put yourself in the place of theÂ individualsÂ you and the rest of your hunting party were trying to kill.â€ť (Emphasis added.)Â Woempner continues the lecture: â€śNow that youâ€™ve experienced the horror of an attack â€“although this one was in self-defense â€“ we hope you will choose to enjoy nature in only nonviolent ways.â€ť
One might think a letter taunting a seriously wounded teenager would be new low for PETA, but itâ€™s unfortunately par for the course. This is an organization thatÂ equatesÂ theÂ terrorist Animal Liberation FrontÂ with the â€śUnderground Railroad and the French Resistance.â€ť This is a group whose president, Ingrid Newkirk, toldÂ WashingtonianÂ magazine in 1986, â€śthere is no rational basis for saying that a human being has special rights. Â A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.â€ť Worse, according to theÂ Washington Post, in a 1983 interview Newkirk remarked, â€śSix million people died in concentration camps, but 6 billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughterhouses.â€ť Read more »
