Sarah Palin has fired back at PETA, after the animal rights organization slammed the former Alaskan governor for the photo she posted of her son Trig standing on top of the family dog.
“It’s odd that anyone—let alone a mother—would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo,” PETA said in a statement. “Then again, PETA, along with everyone else, is used to the hard-hearted, seeming obliviousness of this bizarrely callous woman, who actually thought it appropriate to be filmed while turkeys were being slaughtered right behind her in full view of the camera.”
Now, Palin has fired back at the animal activists, pointing out their blatant hypocrisy when dealing with celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and “Heroic” Barack Obama.
Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog.
Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?
Here is Palin’s entire Facebook post calling out PETA.
PETA released a second statement following Palin’s barrage but sidestepped the entire point Palin was trying to make while taking a cheap potshot at Palin’s one time remark that she can see Russia from her house.
“PETA simply believes that people shouldn’t step on dogs, and judging by the reaction that we’ve seen to Sarah Palin’s Instagram photo, we’re far from alone in that belief. Palin’s Facebook response shows us that she knows PETA about as well as she knows geography. Yes, we campaign against the Iditarod because when the dogs aren’t being driven—sometimes to death—most live chained or inside cages for their entire lives. And we’re a vegan organization, so we sit on pleather couches, wear stylish vegan kicks, and consider fish friends, not food. (Also, by the way, we just sent a case of vegan caviar to Vladimir Putin—and no, you can’t see his house from yours, Ms. Palin.) We have no reason to believe that the Palin companion animals aren’t ordinarily pampered, and we wish the entire family a peaceful and humane 2015.”
