Well, this took much longer than most people expected, but PETA has finally come out slinging against the wildly popular Robertson family from A&E’s Duck Dynasty. America’s favorite red neck family since Honey Boo Boo is not shy about their love for hunting and all things related, which makes a lot of sense since they made their fortune selling duck calls.
PETA, being the Westboro Baptist Church of animal rights, could not pass up an opportunity to garner a ton of fame for themselves. And in their typical fashion, they use their voice to make wildly exaggerated claims and make it more about themselves than protecting any future frogs from being made into dinner.
The idea behind PETA is great- protect animals from cruelty and inhumane treatment from humans. There are not many people that would outright not support that, except maybe Michael Vick or those who believe in bestiality. PETA’s biggest issue, however, is that they go about spreading their beliefs in the most asinine and ridiculous ways.
Take for example their bashing of the Duck Dynasty crew. Their vice president basically implies that shows that promote hunting, such as this one, encourage children to be sick fucks who torture neighbor cats for fun.
“Unfortunately, hunting programs teach kids that violence is somehow acceptable, and according to law-enforcement agencies, violent and aggressive criminals often start out as kids who were encouraged to disrespect and harm animals rather than understanding and being in awe of them.”
Well, thanks a lot Uncle Si for creating the next generation of Jeffrey Dahmers! Gosh, how dare you guys do respectively something that has been vital to our species survival for thousands of years, and plaster that shit all over television! Don’t you all care about children?!
The Robertson family makes no qualms about their love for hunting. It isn’t just a hobby, it is a huge integral part of their lives. Without it, they’d just be dirty looking weirdos in camouflage who sound like dumbasses and need a date with a barber. But it isn’t all fun and games with them. While they do occasionally hunt for sport, most of the time they hunt to eat. Some of the family’s favorite delicacies are squirrel stew and fried frogs, which may very well be absolutely revolting and probably smells like asshole, but they like it and they aren’t hungry, so whatever. Outside of hunting, they are also a totally loving good time family who have good Christian values and don’t bother anyone.
PETA on the other hand is basically just a front for bat shit craziness. They preach about animal cruelty, but their shelters kill 90% of the strays that come into them. They promote violence against other humans if it saves a fucking goldfish, cause that makes total sense. They happily give money to terrorist organizations, cause lunacy loves company. In their ideal world, we wouldn’t even eat eggs or eat cheese since they feel it’s fucked up to milk a cow without it’s explicit permission. So all together, everyone should just stop listening to a damn word these nutbags say.
Any group that wants to shame me for eating pizza is obviously fucking wrong and I have no use for them.
