PETA Isn't HORSING AROUND Anymore: The Animal Rights Group is Upset Yet Again & the Reason is Still Dumb

These people are just insane.  I guess there is room for trolling, but I will err on the side of insanity. 

In their perfect world, no one would eat animals or keep animals as pets/livestock or even have them in zoos.  So animals would be something very few people would have any experience with leading most people to not care about them at all.  That is probably the best way to make sure many animals go extinct and habitats get plowed under or developed.

Hope everyone had their masks on.
I saw a comment elsewhere saying it might be some sort of severe nosebleed/lung rupture combined with blood thinners.  However, the description of him boarding sounds like he was sick.

The beginning of "Pandemic X"??
With blood loss like that, it reminds me of the way people died from the Ebola virus.

It's always been a mad world. For instance, when impeaching Bill Clinton was exactly like Nazi Germany:

Quote
“As she watches Republicans in Congress push ahead with impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, Ellen Mendel of Manhattan says she feels the same despair that she did as a girl in Nazi Germany when the efforts of a stubborn group of leaders snowballed, crushing the will of the people.”
— Opening to a January 25, 1999 New York Times story by Ginger Thompson on liberal Manhattanites enraged by the Republican push for removal.

National Geographic announces its "Traveler of the Year".

Best comment: "Can you guess the countries he didn't travel to?"  :laugh:

Got to remember what's important here, pronouns

Quote
A 90-year-old California woman was fired from her volunteering position at the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society because she 'did not understand pronouns,' despite previously winning multiple awards from the nonprofit group.

Fran Itkoff had been volunteering for the MS Society, a nonprofit support group for multiple sclerosis patients, for 60 years before she was removed.

Although her dedication to the MS Society had been recognized over the years, the group recently forced her to step down after she asked what pronouns meant.

'I was confused. I didn't know what it was and what it meant,' Itkoff said of her first reaction when she was asked to use pronouns in her email signature.

National Geographic announces its "Traveler of the Year".

They laid off all their staff writers last year.  And they still didn't learn their lesson.

I used to love National Geographic.  It is sickening.

Pick up a Scientific American. It's mostly left wing politics now

Add Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, and about another half dozen formerly really well-done "all science" magazines. Currently, you can't read an article on something like nuclear fusion without some DEI blather inserted into the science. Which kinda makes it "not science".

Edit: WLJ got in ahead of me.

Another thing... I used to love libraries.  Loved them. 

Librarians have ruined this.

They push radical leftist books and literal homosexual pornography now.

Nothing going on here. Just NBC using GLAAD surveys regarding the percentage of video game players who are homos. No bias here, man.

My grandmother who had done a great deal of traveling, started my subscription in the mid-60s.  I took over for many years but finally let it go.
I have copies going back into the late 40s and 40 years of my own.

They do that every 10-12 years or so. Then they slowly hire them back.

A friend of mine used to be on staff at National Geographic. He said every day was like a slow motion layoff.

I used to love National Geo. Incredible magazine. My Grandparents also started getting it for me many years ago.

But, like the rest of you, I didn't cotton to its increasingly hardcore left turn into advocacy so I gave it up years ago.

A 90 year old woman who has been volunteering for the MS Society for 60 years, has been told to get lost for not abiding by DEI guidelines. Her crime? Asking what the "pronoun line" that idiots put in their email signatures, profiles etc. meant. Ignorance is a crime now.

Learn a new PC term, "justice impacted individuals"

Quote
Justice-impacted individuals include those who have been incarcerated or detained in a prison, immigration detention center, local jail, juvenile detention center, or any other carceral setting, those who have been convicted but not incarcerated, those who have been charged but not convicted, and those who have been arrested.

aka criminals
