Do you need more proof that the leftist loons known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are less about animal welfare and more about generating idiotic P.R. stunts for the sake of generating idiotic P.R. stunts?
PETA has taken exception to the name of a tiny Tasmanian town called Eggs and Bacon Bay and are suggesting the name should be changed to Apple and Cherry Bay to help promote a healthier, vegan diet amongst residents.
This isn’t an internet hoax. I checked. Claire Fryer of PETA’s Australian chapter said:
“Obviously Tasmania is known as the Apple Isle and the Huon Valley produces a lot of apples and cherries and we think [Apple and Cherry Bay] is a much better, kinder, compassionate and healthy name for this particular area. Considering the high levels of cholesterol and saturated fat in both eggs and bacon, the area might as well be called Heart Attack Bay.”
PETA has written to the local council requesting the name change and incredibly, the mayor says he’s willing to consider it.
The locals aren’t gung-ho though with one resident saying, “These single-interest groups ought to go overseas and annoy the sh*t out of ISIS. There’s plenty of room in the world for them to go and annoy other people and leave us in peace.”
Can you imagine PETA going over to Syria to petition ISIS to put an end to inhumane Sharia slaughtering practices?
