The hypocrisy of many "benificent" organizations should come as no surprise after revelations of rampant sexual abuse/coverups in public schools and churches, lavish spending by the Red Cross, waste in government; but this has to come close to being among the worst:


Documents published online this month show that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an organization known for its uncompromising animal-rights positions, killed more than 95 percent of the pets in its care in 2011.

The documents, obtained from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, were published online by the Center for Consumer Freedom, a non-profit organization that runs online campaigns targeting groups that antagonize food producers.

Fifteen years’ worth of similar records show that since 1998 PETA has killed more than 27,000 animals at its headquarters in Norfolk, VA.

In a February 16 statement, the Center said PETA killed 1,911 cats and dogs last year, finding homes for only 24 pets.


Documents: PETA kills more than 95 percent of pets in its care


What makes this rise close to the top of the hypocrite pile is the outrageous conduct and attacks against humans otherwise minding their own business -- all funded by donations providing abudget of over $37,000,000!


PETA hasn’t slowed down its slaughterhouse operation,” said Rick Berman, CCF’s executive director. “It appears PETA is more concerned with funding its media and advertising antics than finding suitable homes for these dogs and cats.”

In a statement, Berman added that PETA has a $37 million dollar annual budget.
...

PETA employees kill 84 percent of the animals in their custody within 24 hours of receiving them.

“[PETA’s] primary purpose,” Kovich wrote, “is not to find permanent adoptive homes for animals.”

PETA media liaison Jane Dollinger told The Daily Caller in an email that “most of the animals we take in are society’s rejects; aggressive, on death’s door, or somehow unadoptable.”

Dollinger did not dispute her organization’s sky-high euthanasia rate, but insisted PETA only kills dogs and cats because of “injury, illness, age, aggression, or because no good homes exist for them.”

PETA’s own history, however, shows that this has not always been the case.

In 2005, two PETA employees described as “adorable” and “perfect” some of the dogs and cats they killed in the back of a PETA-owned van. The two were arrested after police witnessed them tossing the animals’ dead bodies into a North Carolina dumpster.


Is anybody not surprised?

I loathe PETA. Im all for treating animals ethically bit they dont and the stance on pit bulls sickens me. There are much better charities to donate with. PETA members are worse than hybrid drivers. So much smug. Splash paint on a fur coat while wearing leather shoes. Im mad now.

The absurdity now extends to bestowing human rights on non-human animals.
I doubt all PETA members eat only "free range" products, or adhere to vegan lifestyles.

PETA has stated their clear intention to stop the eating of all animals world wide.
www.petakillsanimals.com...

Additionally, the inspection discovered that PETA’s animal shelter didn't meet PETA’s own published guidelines for running a humane shelter.


Let's play a game, we will call it "The Journey of Logic".

PETA states that animals are people and deserve to be treated the same.
www.peta.org...

PETA believes unwanted animals should be euthanized and are against long term sheltering of animals.

No one despises the ugly reality of euthanizing animals more than the people who hold the syringe, but euthanasia is often the most compassionate and dignified way for unwanted animals to leave the world.

www.peta.org...

Since animals and people deserve to be treated the same, we can replace the use of the word animals with the word people. Therefore, PETA believes ....

"No one despises the ugly reality of euthanizing people more than the people who hold the syringe, but euthanasia is often the most compassionate and dignified way for unwanted people to leave the world."

Kind of sickening, logicaly PETA must be for euthanizing unwanted children, and the homeless. It's simply the most compassionate and dignified route.

Funny you should mention that.
There has been a gradual furor developing over the publication of a study investigating the termination of babies born alive, but whose mothers and doctors believe would npot be very happy if they grew up.

Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say
Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending their lives is no different to abortion, a group of medical ethicists linked to Oxford University has argued.
www.telegraph.co.uk...

the doctors went so far as to insist that the mothers had an absolute "choice" until such time as the child could object!
The publisher of the report was astonished and disgusted that people would comment critically on the study or on the idea that there was no difference between a non-viable fetus and a sick child.

“This “debate” has been an example of “witch ethics” - a group of people know who the witch is and seek to burn her. It is one of the most dangerous human tendencies we have. It leads to lynching and genocide. Rather than argue and engage, there is a drive is to silence and, in the extreme, kill, based on their own moral certainty. That is not the sort of society we should live in.”

Good thinking.
So, where do the liberals draw the line?

The problem is not that he is wrong, it is that he realizes that there is no difference and is so ingrained in his abortion ideology that he must determine killing children that have already been born is now acceptable. Either both are, or neither are.

Where do they draw the line indeed.

Penn and Teller did an episode on PETA with their show BullSh!T. The hypocrisy is amazing. One of their VPs uses insulin injections when was tested on animals. And their big reveal was the fact that they ended up euthanizing close to 95% of the animals they take in.

It's not that everything is a lie, but that the American public is basically credulous. If you say something loud enough, or if the MSM repeat it enough, most people avoid critical thinking and take the word of others who may have undisclosed agendas (agendae? agendi?).

No one looks "behind the curtain" anymore; everyone wants to be spoon-fed, and is thankful for it!
