An animation on a PETA website depicts blood-covered Inuit chasing a seal pup with stone-age clubs.
PETA crosses line with Olympic anti-sealing campaign: Inuit leader
Copyright infringement....A prominent animal welfare group's campaign linking the 2010 Winter Olympics with the Canadian seal hunt is offensive, an Inuit leader says.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — better known as PETA — has launched a website called Olympic Shame 2010, features the stylized inukshuk that was created as the symbol for the upcoming Vancouver Winter Games. In the animation, though, the inukshuk is swinging a club at a seal in a pool of blood.
Cripes.... could you be anymore ignorant in your lame ass propaganda?As well, an animation on the site also shows Inuit with seal blood dripping from their hands and mouths, wielding stone-age clubs.
They don't have a clue because they never actually bother to look into facts, they just go off their ignorant emotions about things they know nothing about and just assume what they see is wrong..... thus it excuses their own actions of being racist, insulting..... oh never mind, we all know what PETA really is..... pointless.Mary Simon, president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, the national Inuit organization, said the campaign insults traditional hunting culture, and is filled with misinformation.
"It just goes to show you to what extent these animal right activists will go to try and convince people that this is somehow wrong," Simon told CBC News.
Simon said she wants to know how the meat Inuit use for food is any different from meat used by other cultures.
Indeed they are."Domesticated animals that are being killed in very inhumane ways — they don't attack those. They're very selective in how they pander to the public emotion," said Simon, adding that Europeans who oppose the Canadian seal hunt are hypocritical.
Indeed... they live out on ice.... wtf else are they going to use for food?"These are organizations that will do anything to fundraise for their own activities and they're very selective in what they attack," she said.
"They live in countries where there [is] culling because they don't hunt seals, they cull them instead."
Herb Jacques, who heads the Inuit community government in Makkovik, on Labrador's northern coast, said he was outraged when he saw the PETA site, showing bloodthirsty Inuit chasing seal pups.
"To me it's a mockery. It's degrading to the Inuit," he said.
"That's not the way of life. The Inuit depend on the seals for food purposes. To me, that's giving the wrong message."
Simon said she has written to PETA, asking that the organization not use Inuit people in its campaigns.
No matter what they find, I'm sure PETA will have a problem with it..... friggin morons.
One comment below the report had a great idea:
"VANOC should sue for copyright infringement, collect a settlement then list PETA as a proud sponsor of the 2010 Winter Olympics."
