"Eat this, PETA!"
Sensationalizing the so-called egg ‘crisis’ that has caused less than a half of one percent of Americans to experience temporary bouts of indigestion and diarrhea, radical animal ‘rights’ group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is urging Iowa’s governor to permanently ban eggs from public school cafeterias.
As can be expected from PETA, the salmonella issue at hand is not what has prompted the organization to whore itself in the media yet again — it’s just a vehicle to promote PETA’s anti-meat, pro-vegan agenda. The public’s health is of not what concerns PETA as much as saving chickens and their eggs from being served as food.
“In addition to being one of the leading causes of food poisoning, eggs are cholesterol bombs, increasing the risk of suffering from clogged arteries and heart disease later in life,” states PETA’s letter to Iowa Gov. Chet Culver (D). “In addition, children like animals and despise cruelty. They would be upset to learn that hens used for their eggs are among the most abused animals on Earth.”
PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman penned the letter to Culver citing that she is a “mother herself” and that’s part of the reason why she’s concerned about making sure school children do not contract salmonella from eggs in cafeterias. If protecting school kids was truly her motivation then, perhaps, this ‘Mother of the Year’ candidate would have made the plea to all of the nation’s governors as opposed to targeting the one in the state where salmonella outbreak is assumed to have arisen.
“Schools have a duty to protect our kids,” Reiman says. “By tossing eggs out of the diets of Iowa schoolchildren, Governor Culver can reduce their risk of illness while also teaching them an important lesson about being kind to animals.”
Speaking of “being kind” to living creatures, PETA should consider that approach with regards to how it respects corporations’ right to free enterprise within our democratic nation. The organization has gone on the record wishing death and destruction to agricultural industries, restaurants, and scientific laboratories because their animals are their business to slaughter, cook, serve, and dissect.
PETA has a 'death wish' for businesses and science labs that don't adhere to the organization's radical animal 'rights' agenda. Learn the truth about PETA at petakillsanimals.com.
The Center for Consumer Freedom cites PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich on July 3, 2001 stating in an audio recording, “It would be great if all the fast-food outlets, slaughter houses, these laboratories and the banks who fund them exploded tomorrow.”
PETA is not interested in saving human lives, much less protecting the public health from a bad case of the runs caused by some ‘rotten’ eggs. Their agenda and rhetoric are clear, reports a profile of the organization on ActivistCash.com:
PETA seeks “total animal liberation,” according to its president and co-founder, Ingrid Newkirk. That means no meat or dairy, of course; but it also means no aquariums, no circuses, no hunting or fishing, no fur or leather, and no medical research using animals. PETA is even opposed to the use of seeing-eye dogs.
Contact Gov. Chet Culver and tell him to stand firm against publicity attempts by PETA to propagandize the so-called egg ‘crisis’ so they can advance their anti-meat agenda in his state. Countless poultry farmers in Iowa that provide schools with eggs to make everything from omelets to brownies are cannot afford for Culver to cave to this radical special interest group.
