PETA, the ELF and R.E.M.
Thanks to A Little More to the Right
for posting the link to this story, conveniently overlooked by our mainstream press. It appears People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has been giving money
to the Earth Liberation Front, which claimed responsibility for the destruction of the SUV's in California recently.
Don't overlook the importance of this story. PETA is famously supported by such luminaries as Chrissy Hynde and our own Michael Stipe of R.E.M. here in Athens. Celebrity irresponsibility appears to have reached a new low and none of us should take this lying down. The actions of the ELF vandals and arsonists, as well as PETA's material support, clearly define the very reasoning our government has already used to shut down Islamic charities accused of supporting Middle East terrorists. I call upon every one of PETA's celebrity apologists to publicly disavow themselves of this group once and for all.
