Got the General Motors Corporation to stop using animals in its crash tests.
Convinced 40 companies, including Adidas-Salamon, Gap Inc., Eddie Bauer, Nike, and Reebok, to refuse to use Indian leather in their products after PETA's investigation revealed horrific abuses
Convinced Ann Taylor, Polo Ralph Lauren, Wet Seal, and many other companies to stop using fur
Got Abercrombie and Fitch, American Eagle, Timberland, and many others to stop using merino wool
Got Target and Giant Eagle to stop selling foie gras
Got Raley's Grocery Store to stop selling live lobsters
Got Duane Read, CVS, Rite Aid, Safeway, and Albertsons to stop selling cruel glue mice traps

The truth is staring you in the face every morning, PSYCHO. While you're proving me right at every other point, tell the readers about "sense of pride, dignity and self respect" as well as "single original or remotely intelligent thought" and how an animal rights person like yourself could attain them. ARA's are pathetic losers.

Ingrid Newkirk, the founder of PeTA says Humans are a "blight" on the earth.

Newkirk on having children.....
“I am not only uninterested in having children. I am opposed to having children. Having a purebred human baby is like having a purebred dog; it is nothing but vanity, human vanity.”

On Newkirk’s extremism.....
“She told me, in the most unequivocal terms, that the world would be an infinitely better place without humans in it at all.”

Also.....

Newkirk on violence...
“[People] need to understand that if they support the torture and misuse of other animals they will be made to pay. The animals are defenseless. They can’t fight back. But we can. And, no matter what it takes, we always will.”

Do you think this lunatic(Newkirk) cares if a woman aborts her baby??

So if PETA finds out that farmers shoot groundhogs as pests in Indiana they would really come unglued?
