PETA Gives Oprah The Award of The Year

Chicago, IL (PressExposure) March 21, 2009 -- The National Institute of Canine Experts is confused and dismayed by Oprah Winfrey’s acceptance of PETA's Person of the Year Award for 2008. By accepting this award, it appears to NICE, The National Institute of Canine Experts, that Oprah Winfrey sends the message that she agrees with PETA’s mission and actions.

Oprah, “Do you support eliminating medical research for American children who suffer from diseases such as cancer and AIDS? PETA does. PETA’s president has said that “even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we would be against it.” And PETA has repeatedly attacked many well-respected medical research foundations such as the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, solely because they support animal-based research.

Oprah, “Do you support organizations that kill 90% of their shelter animals?” PETA does just that. According to government documents, PETA employees have killed more than 19,200 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens since 1998. In 2005, two PETA employees two PETA employees were charged with 31 felony counts of animal cruelty each, after authorities found them dumping the dead bodies of 18 animals they had just picked up from a North Carolina animal shelter into a Dumpster. PETA puts to death over 90 percent of the animals it accepts from members of the public who expect the group to make a reasonable attempt to find them adoptive homes. PETA spends part of its $32 million annual income on a contract with a crematory service to periodically empty hundreds of animal bodies from its large walk-in freezer. peta.html

Oprah, “Do you support the elimination, extinction and eradiation of cows, sheep, goats, cats, dogs, birds, goldfish, honey, rubber, wool, cashmere, milk, and cheese from our lives? Ingrid Newkirk has described her group’s overall goal as “total animal liberation.” This means the complete abolition of meat, milk, cheese, eggs, honey, zoos, aquariums, circuses, wool, leather, fur, silk, hunting, fishing, and pet ownership from American homes.

Oprah, “Do you support those who participate in arson and other criminal activities? PETA does. It appears that PETA has provided financial support to convicted arsonists and other violent criminals. From the article, “7 Things That You Didn’t Know About PETA”, it is reported, “ that PETA made a 2001 donation of $1,500 to the North American Earth Liberation Front (ELF), an FBI-certified “domestic terrorist” group responsible for dozens of firebombs and death threats. During the 1990s, PETA paid $70,200 to Rodney Coronado, an Animal Liberation Front (ALF) serial arsonist convicted of burning down a Michigan State University research laboratory. In his sentencing memorandum, a federal prosecutor implicated PETA president Ingrid Newkirk in that crime.”

Oprah, “Do you support an organization that spreads misinformation about Jesus Christ and attempts to vilify respected religious practices? PETA does. PETA’s has been reported in having billboards taunt Christians with the message that hogs “died for their sins” a gross misrepresentation of the life and message of Jesus Christ.

PETA’s “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign compared the genocide of the Jewish victims of the Nazi Holocaust to our use of chickens and other traditional farm animals. PETA’s anti-religion campaigns include a website that claims—despite any evidence to support their claim—that Jesus Christ was a vegetarian.

Oprah, “Why are you associated with an organization that cares more for publicity than the truth?” PETA frequently tolerates celebrity spokespersons that don’t practice what they preach. Many of its celebrity spokesmen and woman eat meat, wear fur and support animal based research.

For those of you who adore Oprah as much as we do, we understand your horror and disgust with the facts that we have presented. Everyone can make a mistake, and we are sure that Oprah did by accepting this Award. The National Institute of Canine Experts are asking you to contact Oprah and to ask her to return her award right back to PETA.

And our next questions is, "Why is Wayne Pacelle of HSUS even allowed to appear on your show at all as there is overwhleming evidence that he and his organization appear go out of their way to kill healthy, innocent puppies."
