PETA is Hypocritical - Slow News Day at Cardinal

Today, the Daily Cardinal, UW Madison's other daily newspaper, had two stories above the fold that really shouldn't be there.

First, they have yet another story on the alleged "hate crimes" that occurred in Ogg Hall. Once again the media is making a mountain out of an ant hill. I would be mad at the Cardinal, but I have come to expect it from this newspaper.

What I didn't expect was a photo and story about a naked PETA protestor to adorn the front page.

In an attempt to raise awareness about animal cruelty, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals representatives held a public demonstration on State Street Friday, promoting vegetarianism through a nude activist painted in a butcher's diagram.

Among a meat eating and leather clad audience, Michelle Cho, a PETA volunteer, said she wanted to use her body to demonstrate and make an important political statement. She posed on the sidewalk under a banner that read, All Animals Have the Same Parts-Have a Heart, Go Vegetarian.
Yes, animals have the same parts, but we are different. Animals eat each other. It is a fact of life. All of these evolutionists that believe that we are all animals should realize that fact.

She also urged for ethical farm treatment and said the animals subjected to farming are being deprived of feelings, friendship and animal bonding.
Because they are food. I have lived around farmers my entire life and I think cows and other animals have it pretty well. They never starve and they are respected more than PETA understands. These farmers respect animals more than PETA does.

According to an article at Petakillsanimals.com:

From July 1998 through the end of 2004, PETA killed over 12,400 dogs, cats, and other "companion animals" -- at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. That's more than five defenseless animals every day. Not counting the dogs and cats PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death over 85 percent of the animals it took in during 2003 alone.
Well, PETA kills thousands of animals and also take away their reproductive rights. Where is the justice? Where is the animal equality? Like the PETA Protestor in the Cardinal said: "All Animals Have the Same Parts"!

BTW: Jenna posted on this stunt a couple of days ago. I guess it takes the Cardinal some time to catch up the the blogosphere!

how is she a hypocrate? you're talking about a girl who grew up along side slaughter factories and even used to hunt. this girl would actually buy 10 mcdonald's cheeseburgers on $.39 tax days and eat them all in one sitting! this is someone who saw the light(truth), and in turn changed her views and decided she didn't want to have anything to do with such a cruel industry. is it to must to ask for a bullet to the head? bang!!!! there you go. it's over. just remember, those so called happy cows you see roaming the wide open pastures, grazing delicious green grass only account for almost 5% of the worlds cows slaughtered for food/leather. remember that 95 % never ever get to graze let alone turn around once in their lives. thank you. i admire you michelle cho.

Michelle Cho is entitled to her opinion just like the rest of us. The new Grill Chicken at KFC is awesome.

Get a life!!! I dont condone abuse of animals but I do support the right to hunt animals for food! We are part of the food chain. If it wasn't for conservation of certain animals you people wouldnt have your veggies to eat because your crops would be wiped out.
