When they banned cigarettes for dogs I remained silent, because my dog doesn’t smoke

Now comes a charming vignette of PETA and other kooks sending death threats to a dog breeder who dared sell a puppy to Vice President Biden. PETA want to ban all pets, and has chose dog breeders as its opening.

Naturally, PETA led the charge:

Brown was not only vilified in posted comments to newspapers but also on the Web site of People for the Ethical Treatment Animals, or PETA. 

According to a Dec. 12 press release from the animal rights group, it aired its controversial TV commercials “Buy One, Get One Killed” in Biden’s home state of Delaware after he bought his dog from Brown. The commercial blames euthanization of animals in shelters on people who purchase pets from breeders.

What the story fails to point out is that PETA is not only against dog breeding, but all pet ownership, and has a documented record of routinely euthanizing dogs rather than putting them up for adoption.

PETA is comprised of seriously deranged individuals – something you might remember the next time they approach you for donations. Myself, I think I’ll just send them some peanuts and CFLs.

    Yeah, they are sticking the begging cup out at you in Grand Central from displays about farm animal abuse and puppy mills (otherwise good causes) and then use the money for all kinds of crazy things.

    But another group on the rise is the Humane Society of the United States. Deceptively named, it has nothing to do with the ASPCA (colloquially known as the “humane society”) or local SPCAs and animal shelters. But it might be even more successful than PETA at raising money because of the name confusion, and has a similar agenda.
