Seeing a Seafood Restaurant Savage PETA's 'Animal Inclusive' Language Is the Most Fun You'll Have Today


After the loony liberal group PETA tweeted a ridiculous guide to “anti-animal language,” the animal activists were given a reality check by a well-known seafood restaurant.

PETA, short for “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals,” is not new to controversy. The so-called animal rights organization consistently makes headlines with its ridiculous stunts.

Previously, PETA tried to run an anti-Thanksgiving advertisement on NBC. The left-wing group also believes that milk is a white supremacist symbol.

Now the group is trying to police “anti-animal language” to combat “speciesism” in the name of “social justice.”

“Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it. Here’s how to remove speciesism from your daily conversations,” PETA tweeted with a guide offering alternatives to common phrases.

Instead of saying “beat a dead horse,” PETA suggests saying “feed a fed horse.”

Wouldn’t beating a horse that is already dead do less harm than overfeeding a live animal?

Do you think Jimmy's had the right response?

It turns out that PETA isn’t exactly the best advocate for animals, as Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, a restaurant in Baltimore, pointed out.

The restaurant, with over 100,000 followers on Twitter, mocked the left-wing group with its own tone-policing formula.

“Instead of saying PETA has killed over 36,000 animals. Say: PETA has not euthanized 40,000 animals yet,” the restaurant tweeted.

The “36,000 killed” referred to a report from an anti-PETA group published in 2017. But even liberal publications like the Huffington Post acknowledge PETA’s killing of animals is an “open secret” among activists.

Jimmy’s Seafood wasn’t the only one mocking PETA. Judging from the social media reactions, most people seemed agree that PETA’s language policing was out of line.

Even a couple of The Western Journal’s editors had gotten into the act by Tuesday evening:

Jimmy’s Famous Seafood has the right idea. Americans shouldn’t be afraid to mock the left when they try to control language or peddle false social justice.
