March 15th: Eat a Tasty Animal for PETA Day

That’s right, folks, it’s that time of year again. Time to go out and eat animal products for breakfast, animal products for lunch, and animal products for dinner. Why? Well, animal products are good for you. They’re tasty. And PETA really wants you to stop eating meat.

This year, you can follow the IEATAPETA Day festivities via a brand-new EATAPETA Facebook group.

So they do stupid things. Like run truly offensive ad campaigns? Or run a shelter with a 97% kill rate. Or wear KKK costumes to protest a dog show. (Yes, really.)

Hey, they started it: six years ago, I wrote this.

PETA has started yet another offensive ad campaign. This one really reaches bottom—they are using Holocaust terminology, quotes, and pictures to liken the “slaughter” of animals to the slaughter of the Jews by the Nazis.

I’ve already received a letter from a child of Holocaust survivors who is, of course, extraordinarily offended. But here’s the thing: PETA is known for this kind of outrageous publicity stunt—and that’s what it is, an outrageous publicity stunt—and while I am also offended and outraged, there is absolutely nothing we can do that will make PETA change their ad campaign. I’m sure they knew exactly what they were doing, have a plan in mind, and, if they withdraw the campaign, will do it according to their deadlines and their decisions.

So let’s make up our own outrageous publicity stunt. Let’s designate Saturday, March 15th, as International Eat an Animal for PETA Day. Everybody set the date on your calendar, and either go out and enjoy a great steak, or cook one at home. Or cook up some chicken or fish or anything else that PETA wouldn’t want you to eat.

Let’s not forget that Ingrid Newkirk’s will says she wants people to make purses out of her skin after she dies. And I can’t find an original source for this, but I would not be surprised to find that it is true: Newkirk said:

“The leather sofa and handbag are the moral equivalent of the lampshades made from the skins of people killed in the death camps.”

That’s why this keeps going every year. People are tired of extremist nutjobs masquerading as activists. There are plenty of organizations out there that truly have animals’ best interests at heart. PETA isn’t one of them. So go out and have some meat, eggs, and dairy products two weeks from today. Anything that a hard-core vegan won’t eat works for EATAPETA Day. And frankly, if you’re a hardcore vegan and still hate PETA, have some tofurkey in our honor.

    I’d like to suggest an additional idea for EATAPETA Day: share a bit of your meal with a carnivore. Like, maybe, a cat. And then skritch the cat.

    Time to pull out the BBQ and brew up some yummy sauce.

    My little guy likes scrambled eggs…does that count?

  3. Yep. Animal product. Milk, eggs, and cheese all work.

    Getting hungry…

    And so is my cat.

    And just to put up a middle digit at PETA, eat kosher meat. PETA protests kosher meat (although apparently not halal, because PETA people are cowards).
