So the PETA is trying to get an ad published in the Portage la Prarie local newspaper... directly comparing Tim McLean's struggles to what happens to an animal as it's being slaughtered.
I found the ad on a PETA blog, here it is:
The editors at the paper had the good taste and sound judgement to refuse to post the ad. See? It's not ALL about revenue. There are still SOME morals in journalism.
I don't understand who in their right mind thought this was a good idea. I just don't get it. People around the world are watching as this gruesome story unfolds... and the PETA is using it as a campaign message.
It's one thing to promote vegetarianism. Seriously, I love veggies. But this is so disrespectful, and makes me so sick, that I'm actually feeling the need to donate a large sum of money towards an organization that promotes the inhumane slaughter of animals. Just to stick it to the PETA.
You've gone too far on this one.
