Bullshit…

Before I get to the rest of the shit I want to talk about, I have to address this. My man Stile is being threatened by P.E.T.A. for a video that he put up on his site where a kitten is cooked and eaten for food. He didn’t make this video, he just added a queen song to it and posted it. P.E.T.A thinks that this is enough to warrant prosecution, and they are reporting the site to the Department of Justice for violating a new federal law that prohibits depicting of animal cruelty for commercial purposes.

Is it disturbing and disgusting? Yes, of course it is. But it’s not any more disgusting or disturbing than videos P.E.T.A. has on their own site. In the video Meet your Meat which is freely available for download on peta.org you can see all sorts of horrible things like pigs being hung upside down with their throats slit, kicking and bucking in agony. Far more agony than the cat suffers in the video on Stile’s site. Cows are branded in the face and then later also strung up by their hind legs with their throats slit. Click here if you have real player and you want to watch it. Before you do, I’m warning you that it’s very, very disturbing and graphic.

It’s enough to make you want to stop eating meat, and that’s the point of it.

What’s supposed to be wrong about the video on stile’s site is that the animal being killed and eaten is one that many people here in this country have for a pet. Well, what we choose to eat and what we choose to have as a pet is very much based on culture, and in Korea (where this video was supposedly made) it is fairly common for people to enjoy cats as food. It’s a real video of something that happens everyday, not a video of senseless and unusual cruelty. I don’t like seeing things like that anymore than you do. I have 2 cats, and watching cats getting killed and eaten is not my idea of fun. Saying it’s gross, and that you don’t want to watch it is normal. However, saying you want a guy that found the video on the internet and posted it sent to jail is far more disgusting to me than the video itself.

That’s the problem with these P.E.T.A. wack jobs, they’re no better than fucked up religious zealots. To them there is no open debate, and the only way for the world to go is vegetarian. This retarded point of view completely alienates them from animal lovers like myself, people who believe that it is quite natural for animals to eat other animals. I don’t like to see or hear about suffering, so I buy free range chicken and beef, and I don’t eat veal. I also don’t like to see or hear about censorship or zealotry, so I don’t buy into P.E.T.A. Now if we could only get some of these animal loving assholes for a swim down in the Florida coast for a little lesson in how the fucking food chain works…

I’ll be back later tonight with the rest of the shit I was gonna post…
