PETA wishes Obama hadn't swatted that fly

WASHINGTON – The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he's bedeviled by a fly in the White House.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

"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."

During an interview for CNBC at the White House on Tuesday, a fly intruded on Obama's conversation with correspondent John Harwood.

"Get out of here," the president told the pesky insect. When it didn't, he waited for the fly to settle, put his hand up and then smacked it dead.

"Now, where were we?" Obama asked Harwood. Then he added: "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."

Friedrich said that PETA was pleased with Obama's voting record in the Senate on behalf of animal rights and noted that he has been outspoken against animal abuses.

Still, "swatting a fly on TV indicates he's not perfect," Friedrich said, "and we're happy to say that we wish he hadn't."

Deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said the White House has no comment on the matter.

You can't even make shit this lame up.

PETA should have spent some time in Kuwaiti guard towers with me. The god damn "curious creatures" would carry you away.

My guess is that they're to busy finding things to be outraged about to go outside.

Obongo is not one of my favorite narcisists but this fly thing is ridiculous.

Do they expect him to sit there and let it crawl up his nose?

"That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker." ???



Obama is pretty fucking full of himself if he's that proud of swatting a goddam fly...

What's next? Is he gonna invite the media to watch him pee?

"That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I didn't even spray all over the lid."

Obama takes a dump:

"That was pretty impressive wasn't it? My dookies are so long, and stinky too!"

Obama ties his shoes:

"That was pretty impressive wasn't it? Tied 'em up on the first try!"

When any given nation gives a fucked up orginization like PETA a legitmate mouthpiece,
that said nation is fucked up too.

Anyone who's been to the sandbox remember the red poison they issued us. You could mix it with water and then watch them fill there belly's with it until they looked like little cherries about to pop. Then after a few minutes they would start to twitch and shake. Then BANG!!!! Dead. Maybe i was just bored but i used to love watching it over and over again.

Better stop now before PETA reads this.

But also funny at the same time.

Although most of its contributions comes from doting, animal loving, pet owners; PETA is 100% against the ownership of animals as pets since they say that they believe it's animal exploitation.

The reason I said "say that they believe" is because they're full of shit; PETA is nothing more than a scam to separate fools from their money which is why they pull stupid publicity stunts such as lamenting the demise of a fucking disease carrying fly.

BTW; my county is spraying for mosquitoes today; why don't the PETA insect lovers come here and demonstrate against this heinous act?

Maybe some can tell me if PETA has a "pecking order" (pun intended) What I mean is: Who wins when one of the life forms kills other life form. The following animals destroy plant life. Who lives, who dies in their rational? Is it survival of the fittest until only the fruit fly is still alive at the end?

Locust, Grass hoppers, Fruit flies, potato and cucumber beetles, caterpillars, and root maggots and cut worms

"Now, where were we?" Obama asked Harwood. Then he added: "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."

Wow, so Obama can do one thing right. That's impressive. He's destroying this country, but he can kill a fly with his bare hands.

The fly he killed served more purpose than any of his constituents. Though I can't say I mourn the fly and the thousands of corpse eating maggots it would have spawned in its lifetime.

Since PETA has killed thousands of dogs and cats themselves,the outrage over the death of a fly rings a little hollow.
Link Posted: 6/18/2009 7:14:01 AM EST
I am all for ethical treatment of animals to a point. Domesticated animals should not be abused or neglected. I would also perfer to have a clean kill when hunting to ensure that the animal didn't suffer, instead of hitting game on the head with a baceball bat. There is a clear line between animals, and pests. I think that the members of PETA should be placed in a cage with 100 angry racoons, and then we will see how much they love animals.
