PETA Goes After Bacon Boy and Family

PETA GOES AFTER BACON BOY AND FAMILY

If you haven’t heard about this little boy yet, you’ll be delighted by this video. Easton Beach, a wide-eyed young child from California is a big fan of bacon. He recently tried it for the first time and fell in love immediately. The video from December 25th shows little Easton eating a piece of it and screaming its name over and over in delight. The internet has quickly fallen in love with this adorable lad, and he has become a sensation. Unfortunately, not all people have a soft spot for his reaction to pork. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) could not let this one go and just enjoy this video. One of their spokespeople gave their two cents to the New York Daily News:

“Kids are adorable when they're learning to talk, and like most kids, this one has no idea that bacon is made from little pigs and would be horrified to find out that fact. Kids have a natural affinity for animals that advertisers and others are anxious to smother, but PETA hopes that doesn't happen to this little boy and that he grows up to be a kind vegan.”

Uh, OK. PETA has decided to go after the parents as if they’re monsters for feeding their child a delicious protein source. They fail to realize that one can appreciate animals as God-given creatures, yet still appreciate what they provide for us. Also, it is a major leap to assume that a child is being manipulated and would otherwise find meat appalling once he or she knows of its source. We shouldn’t expect anything else from a group that has consistently shown little reservation in spreading its bizarre messaging to any segment of society, especially children. They’ve targeted them with their PETA Kids initiative, as well as PETA 2, their youth-based website. Some of their more offensive and extreme campaigns geared at children include their comparisons of meat consumption to slavery and the Holocaust, falsely linking cow’s milk to autism, and their sad attempts at humor by mocking obesity. From a previous article we wrote on PETA’s indecency related to children in advertising:

“They have proven that no subject is off limits, even going so far as to include children in their depictions. This raises an important question: How can an organization that prides itself on advocating for the “rights” of animals that can’t voice their opinions, exploit kids who actually have God-given rights as humans but similarly can’t voice their opinions, and honestly say that what they’re doing isn’t hypocritical in the most blatant way possible?”

Hypocritical indeed. PETA chides others for what they refer to as exploitation, but doesn’t think twice about actually doing it themselves. Let’s hope Easton continues to enjoy his newfound obsession and doesn’t grow up to turn into a cold, jaded animal rights activist with a ‘holier than thou’ complex that many PETA members have become.
