Another PETA Eye-Roller: Flies are "Curious"

The President made news by swatting a fly during an interivew recently, and ever the publicity hogs, PETA, decided to horn in on the act. True to form, it criticized Obama for killing the fly, but note how Bruce Friedrick, a PETA general, anthropomorphized the insect. From the story:
"We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."
The fly wasn't curious. It wasn't saying to itself, "Hmm, I'll see what this new president is all about" only to be cruelly killed. It was attracted by a scent or whatever it is that attracts flies. It wasn't a thought-out act.

  1. Fight for the rights of unborn babies, and I will fight for animal's rights. Humans are superior to "other animals." I still haven't heard about PETA fighting against the slaughter of human babies. If a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy, then that means we are all equal. If you choose to ignore the fact that humans have God-given minds and souls, then at least give us equality. Set aside time to fight abortion, or stop fighting for "animal rights."
