And that is a direct quote. Don’t tell me that conservatives are the ones with the fascist impulses. It’s the far left with their constant attacks on everything Americans enjoy, and hold dear, who are the fascists.
Animal rights protesters have launched a series of angry campaigns against A-list carnivores. They are shifting their focus from celebrities who wear fur to others who encourage the “exploitation” of animals by eating them. In its latest campaign, Peta – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which became infamous for dousing fur-wearers in red paint – has launched an attack on the singer Jessica Simpson.
Ms Simpson was singled out for ridicule after she was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Real Girls Eat Meat”, believed to be a light-hearted dig at her boyfriend Tony Romo’s vegetarian ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood.
Now listen to this genius:
Alistair Currie, a spokesman for Peta, said: “Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn’t have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death. Some people feel like they are standing up against a tide of political correctness when they make a statement like this – what she is really doing is standing up for the status quo.”
The animal rights group doctored a photo of Ms Simpson to read “Only Stupid Girls Eat Meat”, and listed “five reasons only stupid girls eat meat”.
You know what? I have to beg to differ. Stupid isn’t enjoying nature’s bounty as God intended. Stupid is openly telling someone she doesn’t have a right to eat something she most explicitly does have a right to eat.
Kudos to Jessica Simpson for being a politically incorrect rarity in Hollywood. Kid’s got chutzpa.
