So it seems like if the president swats a fly the media look to create some kind of storm about it. You can read at the moment on many ‘reputable’ news sources that PETA is throwing a hissy fit about Obama swatting a fly. This, however, is totally incorrect. Just the tiniest bit of searching finds us at The PETA Files (I hate to make the joke but I’m sure there is someone in Peta who is a PETA File…). Here is the article that clearly states
Believe it or not, we’ve actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA’s official response to the executive insect execution.
In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn’t the Buddha, he’s a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act.
The media contact PETA, PETA give a generalised statement about human beings and the media twist it to make it look like PETA are saying bad about the President. Then everyone and his sister get hold of it and scream and shout till the cows come home.
Oh well, you decide, just for the record I don’t particularly like PETA and this is one of the only times I’ll ever be on their side!
