Not Content With Making Gross Pro-Vegetarian Porn, PETA Attempts To Ruin Battlefield 3 Too

I love animals. I hate factory farming. I was a strict vegetarian for 10 years and I still mostly lean that way. People who abuse animals anger me on a level rivaling my hatred for pedophiles and The Strokes. I think the world would be measurably improved if most people either went veggie or cut out 50% or more of the meat they consume.

And god dammit, PETA sucks so much they make me want to eat raw meat from the end of a stick made out of baby seal bones. Not only are they always doing horrible, gimicky things like posting pics of naked B-list celebrity hacks or comparing meat eaters to nazis, they also have an annoying tendency to completely demonstrate a deplorable lack of humor or capacity to understand the concept of fiction. Like the latest example, their outrage of Battlefield 3. See, early in the single player campaign, the player is sneaking through the rubble of a city recently leveled by a quake, trying to evade enemy forces who fully intend to kill them if they catch them. At one point, a rat attempts to bite you, squeaking loudly all the while, and to survive, you have to stab it with your knife.

Apparently, this is just the worst thing PETA has ever heard of:

The realistic computer game “Battlefield 3″ treats animals in a sadistic manner. The game gives players the option to kill a rat with a combat knife in the back in order to then lift it by its tail, then toss it away. Killing virtual animals can have a brutalizing effect on the young male target audience. There have been repeated cases of animal cruelty in Germany, where young people kill animals. Inspiration behind these acts often came from movies and computer games.

UGH. Even PETA is playing the ‘Video Games Make People Evil’ card. Seriously guys, no they don’t. They just don’t. Plus, you’re angry ab out the rat, but not about the endless recreation of deadly wars? Priorities, guys. Seriously.

What in god’s name makes a group like PETA so motivated to protect the rights of a ing rat? They live in sewers, their bodies are breeding grounds for bacteria, viruses, and god knows what else, and on top of that, rats carried the bubonic plague which killed close to 200 million Europeans.

Second of all, video games and movies do not MAKE a person act out violently against people and animals. They either have a messed up situation at home, most likely a white-trash whore of a mother and a pitiful drunken hill billy/physically abusive father, and/or simply grew up nurturing their psychopathic/sociopathic thoughts until they forgot the basic human morals we’re all raised with.

the rats, the world is better off without the disgusting bastards.

PETA, if they care about animals needs more than human needs, then they can give up their nice middle-class homes and go live in the jungle with the ing aids infected primates for all I care.

A human’s life is far more important then any animals, I wonder if they believe that or not, for some reason I have a feeling they would sacrifice there own life, but to each his own.

My thing with groups like PETA is that they haven’t come up with any hard compelling facts to back up their actions. Its mostly based on opinions, and usually flimsy ones at that.

Also, not to discredit vegetarianism, but my argument against it is: If you love these animals so much, why do you keep eating their food supply?

“Dumbasses

I was about to say the exact same thing. People totally ignore ratings.
