PETA Equates ‘Anti-Animal Language’ with Racism and Homophobia

“Beating a dead horse” and “kill two birds with one stone” may be familiar platitudes and used often, but hyper-vigilant PETA says they are actually slurs against animals and should be stopped.

According to the politically-charged animal rights group, these expressions and others like them are just as bad as using racial or homophobic slurs against humans; the group wants you to stop using these phrases immediately.

“Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic, or ableist language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are and start ‘bringing home the bagels’ instead of the bacon,” PETA said, speaking out on Twitter about this new “should be banned” list of language and expressions.

Even the usually swift-to-outrage left has ended up puzzled by this latest message from the animal rights group. By suggesting that we no longer use this common colloquial language, the group has gone too far for even the most progressive publications, and the mocking was rapid and nearly universal.

What had people so charged up? It wasn’t the goofy premise (some of the sayings and their suggested counterparts are below), but rather the suggestion that using a common term like “kill two birds with one stone” was akin to shouting a racial slur or being a racist bigot.

“Kill two birds with one stone” should be reimagined as the animal friendly “Feed two birds with one scone.”

“Beat a dead horse” loses its meaning entirely, becoming “Feed a fed horse.”

“Take the bull by the horns” is transformed to “Take the flower by the thorns.”

While most of these don’t make much sense, they do remove the mild suggestion of violence against animals (though the horse in question is already dead). Instead, there is lots of animal friendly “feeding” going on.

The outrage stems not from the silliness of the phrases created and that PETA now wants you to use, but to the comparison of using phrases like “Bring home the bacon” with racism and homophobic behavior. In doing so, PETA not only trivialized their own cause — but the thoughts, core beliefs and morality of people on both sides of the political aisles as well. Twitter users were swift to point this out, and for a brief moment, conservatives and liberals alike bonded and blasted the agency for their lack of concern for their own agenda (protection of animals) and for making a mockery of the very social issues concern so many of us today.

This may be the straw that broke the camel’s back for the often controversial group and one that drives away the very supporters they hope to cultivate.

It’s worth pointing out that this is, in fact, the same organization that euthanizes (read “murders”) 70 percent of the animals they allegedly rescue. For PETA, it seems like virtue signaling on the internet is more important than actually protecting the animals they pretend to care so much about.

  1. Just to point out you shouldn’t say straw that broke the camels back. You should now say don’t let your camel stray of track. That’s not harmful to gay camels feelings

  2. Anyone who calls another a “Racist” has to be a racist themselves. Think about it!
    Does anyone remember the “Shmoos” from the newspaper comic strip “Lil Abner”?
    The Shmoo were animals that loved when people were going to eat them.

  3. You’re totally off base with this one they are just colloquial expressions they don’t mean racism if you see racism from that you you must be paranoid about everything in the universe

  4. Please don’t offend animals as they are being taught to read and understand what you say and mat be upset. This world has gone the way of stupidity. God help us.

  5. Why not get your leftist shills in congress to pass a law banning English, the only racist language on the planet Earth, eh peta reprobates? You demotards passed stupid a few thousand miles back, and maybe its time we disinfect America of these mental midget viruses….

  6. I wish they cared as much about the babies murdered thru abortion as they do about taking care of animals. Don’t these children have more rights than animals? This is all completely ridiculous.

  7. Here’s a message for the fools at PETA who have, with this latest bit of silliness, clearly lost their minds: I will never adopt their ridiculous substitute phrases.

  8. These phrases are really a part of our history, just as so many statues are that have been torn down by the truly stupid liberals. All of this seems to fit in with the concept of socialism that that they feel is the best future for our country, when all other socialistic governments have failed or are failing.
    We seem doomed by this thinking,and I’m so sorry
    for the next generation.

  9. There was a time when people talked foolishness it was ignored. No the more goofy the statement the more likely it is to be picked up by the main stream media.

  10. Laugh if you will at these people but think about guys like me that have to go out every evening and schmooze the chickens into believing that we’re taking the eggs inside to raise them. It’s not easy being PC! It makes me feel so ‘cheep’!

  11. Our society has failed to produce intelligent beings! It has become too easy to pass off total nonsense as being politically correct. The goal of the left is always dominance, not freedom. Wake up America and put down the pot pipes before it’s too late.

  12. these lunatics passed the stupidity grade, now they need to act like the crow standing with the scarecrow till they drop dead.
