So~o, PETArd attacks video games while themselves trying to get money and attention by sexualizing violence? Yet another way PETArd is a bunch of hypocrites.

re: #1 EiMitch

yeah and in the case of Mario, its not even clear where his raccoon suit comes from. Judging by the game, its magical in nature and probably just comes out of thin air, not a dead raccoon. That makes PeTA’s official position even more ridiculous. What’s it made of? I don’t know. It could be fake fur made out of plant fibers for all I know, and an animal rights group like PeTA shouldn’t mind that. Unless we’re to believe that even that would encourage animal abuse some how, I can’t even see why someone who believed in and was fully dedicated to their cause would care.

It’s made out of pixels, not meat.

PETA doesn’t care, since PETA cannot stand to be contradicted, even electronically. In that way PETA moonbats are like Tea Party wingnuts, and both are like spoiled children: They throw a massive tantrum if they don’t get their way.

LOL!

Hmmm pixels! yum. Now I want to eat Mario and that means other people will as well. We’re going to need a video game characters rights group. PeTVGC!

A strange thing to say considering that they contradict themselves all the time.

PETA = the Westboro Baptist .of Animal Rights. I don’t remember who said that but I certainly agree.

9 FemNaziBitch  Fri, Jan 31, 2014 12:20:51pm

PETA is just plain weird IMHO.

It’s like they are looking for the kewl teenage factor and they are doing it wrong.

PETA has issues with video games yet they kill thousands of cats and dogs each year with no problem. They aren’t sincere about their animal rights causes, they’re in it for the money.

Moonbats will contradict themselves all day long, but if sane people point out their self-contradiction or or contradict the moonbats themselves then the moonbats being barking out rageful butthurt and throwing their guano.

I seriously think that PETA isn’t even trying to expand their brand or send a disgestable “message.” I think they’re milking a certain niche of people who will keep throwing money and don’t care that PETA doesn’t actually spend any of it on animal welfare. They’re scammers.

In Mario 3D the raccoon ability comes from getting a “Leaf” power-up, it is a magical look/ability, not a fur coat. Just as a “Bell” power-up gives you cat look/ability to climb walls, a “Mushroom” makes you bigger (ala Alice in Wonderland), a “Fireflower” allows you to shoot flaming balls at enemies, and “Twin cherries” creates a duplicate of your character.

PETA’s entire premise with this campaign is nothing short of absurd, you break a certain block and get a “Leaf” that gives you magical raccoon abilities. It isn’t like you chase down, kill and then skin raccoons to make a raccoon suit. Why bring up the raccoon at all anyway? You would think they would have jumped on the cat look as being more inappropriate, especially after their miserably failed “sea kittens” (fish rights) awareness campaign. :p

I couldn’t have said it better myself.
