If there were ever a more pathetic organization on Earth than PETA, then I don’t know what it is. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is scolding President Obama for killing a fly that was bothering him during a recent interview with CNBC.
They are in fact sending him a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside. Are you serious?
“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.”
I guess they are serious!
Personally, I think it’s great – that is the president swatting the pesky intruder. If there was ever a creature as worthless and invasive to mankind, the fly is it. I’ve killed plenty in my time and although I did not vote for Obama, I sure applaud his killing of the pest.
I also now realize more than ever how ridiculous an organization like PETA is. Sure they might champion worthy causes but humanity for flies? Please!
And to show just how much I enjoyed the president’s response to the intruding fly, here is the actual video clip of the killing itself. Enjoy unless of course you are some kind of strange and bizarre fly lover.
