That is true sentinel65 i used the term terrorist brashly in the case of Sea Shepard considering the fact the term has negative connotations. I personally respect Sea Shepard for even though they do often violently and aggresively harrass whaling ships the circumstnces call for it. Whaling is a cruel industry that enviromentalist have been fighting for years even decades and still certian places persitently continue it even though most of the world has banned it! In the case of Peta though we ARE affecting real change! The world is in such a different state now with veganism and animal rights a popular subject on the top of peoples minds. You have a point Annie but in case you hadn’t noticed the fact that we floured bomb Kim was not on the news. What was on the news was that Lady Gaga thinks we’re stupid because of it which only gets us negative attention like peacelovepie says we already have all the attention we need. EVERYONE knows about Peta and instead of getting more attention we need to use the attention we already have to start serious actions. When we do things like flourbombing we make people who are on the fence on the issue think we’re bullies trying beat people into submission through violence. we have the attention we know need to use persuasion or else people will reject anything animal rights just on the principle that they don’t want to submit to anybody no matter what issue they are forcing.
PETA’s mission is to get the animal rights message out to as many people as possible. Unlike our opposition—which is mostly composed of wealthy industries and corporations—PETA must rely largely on free “advertising” through media coverage. We will do extraordinary things to get the word out about animal cruelty because we have learned from experience that the media, sadly, do not consider the terrible facts about animal suffering alone interesting enough to cover. It is sometimes necessary to shake people up in order to initiate discussion, debate, questioning of the status quo, and, of course, action.
@Octopus, I do agree with what you are saying, PETA shouldn’t do things like throw pies and flour. It really doesn’t do anything, and certain large-scale organizations should stay clean. But I wouldn’t go around calling Sea Shepherd terrorists. There are people that would call us terrorists because we’re part of PETA. The only people that I’ve seen refer to them or us as ‘terrorists’ is politicians that want to mislead the public into thinking that we’re the bad guys/girls. The ARM are terrorists. To place Sea Shepard in the same title as them doesn’t seem right, at least to me. And after all aren’t we all trying to accomplish the same goal? (Not trying to start a giant argument here, just informing and curious as to why you would call them terrorists)
