PETA goes ape in anti-Hallmark campaign over chimp photography

David MenziesMission Specialist

Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle: PETA has embarrassed itself again in their latest attempt to generate publicity for the sake of generating publicity

I’m all for seeing animal cruelty stamped out wherever it exists but it was curious to see PETA launch a major offensive recently against Hallmark.

It seems they incurred PETA’s wrath over a handful of greeting cards that feature photographs of chimpanzees dressed up in human clothing which PETA claims harms these primates.

I guess even apes can have self-esteem issues?

PETA urged the public to contact Hallmark to demand the company stop photographing chimpanzees only to have the company issue a statement noting they haven’t commissioned any new chimp photography in almost a decade.

Yeah, never mind . . .

I think I’ll send PETA a greeting card in the days ahead to educate them. Call me a cheeky monkey but I’m going to make sure it’s a Hallmark card and that it prominently features a primate.

Uh hello, PETA knew the images weren’t new. By continuing to circulate them, Hallmark is promoting and supporting cruelty to animals. That’s the takeaway.

There’s nothing amusing about how chimpanzees are abused for photo ops. Whether the animal was abused yesterday or 10 years ago, continuing to sell these cards shows that Hallmark doesn’t care.

Peter. Right you are. The chimps should be charged for a hate crime. How dare they appropriate human culture! Oh the humanity!

This is typical PETA – liberal hypocrisy, cowardice and factual dissonance. Recently I sent them an email asking about their stance on Halal slaughter cruelty and the Islamic blood sacrifice “holidays”. The response was a link to their Islam-worshipping website gushing about “the beautiful religion of Islam”. They run this abomination of a website while simultaneously churning out protests against Islamic slaughter methods on their main website, at the same time blaming “Westernized” methods for all farm animal cruelty on their Islamic site. This group is a bunch of celebrity meth heads trying to garner attention to themselves. A circus of hypocritical clowns and cowards. Here’s their Islamophilic website: http://www.animalsinislam.com

And 16 gay (an suspected gay) men will be executed in Iran today alone.

Not a peep from the tolerant, compassionate left.

Rebel Fan support a local rescue or the local SPCA , don’t tell me you have never heard of those?
commented 2016-10-09 01:37:27 -0400
Rebel Fan PETA sees to it that many animals are put down. They are hypocrites and do little for animals other than spout off.

BILL ELDER said ‘Despite what they believe to be true in their altered reality, a rat is NOT a pig is NOT a boy….it is a rat’.
But bill what if the rat identifies as transgender? or some other gender thingy. And the poor pig, he is trying to make friends with an Islamic person and keeps getting rejected. Not good for the esteem of the poor pig.

BRAVO ZULU I just had a Moose roast sandwich. Mmmm so good. I also eat Deer both Muley and Whitetail, and Wild and domestic Turkey, lots of Grouse and other game birds – fish – well lets not get into how many fish I and my family consume.

I love the Rebel Media, but I also love animals. I love some animals more than I love some people. Mr. Menzies says that animal abuse has to be stamped out, but he doesn’t give a better alternative organization than Peta, for animal lovers to support. If he knows of one, I’d like to hear about it.

Duh, PETA to Hallmark, that’s cultural misappropriation! Six munse ago I could not spell genius now I are one.

It’s planet of the Apes all over again.

So why hasn’t PETA gone after Halal food?

Especially since all a Muslim has to do to make something he thinks isn’t halal, halal, is say the Muslim version of grace over it.

Probably because PETA knows its property will be burned down the next day.

Dave – I’m waiting to see this on a Hallmark greeting card -

A Turk by the name of Haroun
Ate whisky by means of a spoon
To one who asked why
This turk made reply:
“To drink is forbidden, you loon.”

I guess if they were kicking them and cutting their throats with a hala prayer it would be ok but don’t dress them up.

Peter Nettterville, stop stealing my line! (unless of course you pay me royalties…. we can work something out)
commented 2016-10-08 15:27:50 -0400
is there any reason they didn’t go out into the streets to protest the slaughter of animals by our resident scum muslims ,or are they too gutless to do that ,i wish one of those aholxx would knock on my door and i also wonder how many of these mentally challenged Peta members have leather seats in their cars ,to me that would be interesting to know as the seats covers are from animal hides .to me an ideal job would be to go and investigate all these lefty protesters over pipelines ,oil ,gas ,refineries ,peta all these different wackos and shove their hypocrisy in their faces on camera and world wide news and also find out who pays them,if only the msm would co-operate .

There are a lot of “clinical psychotics” in this world of ours, Bill. The oddity are the ones that are still normal.

Stop the planet, I want off!
commented 2016-10-08 14:24:39 -0400
David, David, David – in case you haven’t noticed yet these PETA fanatics display all the symptoms of clinical psychotics – their actions and narratives should be dismissed out of hand as the ranting of chronically demented people.

Despite what they blieve to be true in their altered reality, a rat is NOT a pig is NOT a boy….it is a rat

Stupidity IS the HALLMARK of PETA and all other regressive left organizations.
