People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is well-known for doing some crazy things to raise awareness about animal mistreatment. But I think their latest idea is either a total publicity stunt or their most insane, outrageous idea yet. They want to buy the childhood home of Jeffrey Dahmer, an infamous serial killer who also ate his victims. He murdered his first victim in the home and PETA wants to “turn his legacy around.” What they want to do with the house borders on a parody you might see on a macabre, Halloween edition of Saturday Night Live: PETA wants to turn it into a vegan restaurant.
PETA says: “We’re always looking for ways to turn cruelty on its ugly head, so when we heard that serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home had been put up for sale, we saw an opportunity to create good out of evil. Rather than remaining as a stark reminder of its dark past, the building can instead become the site of a celebration of culinary compassion.”
I know you’re probably thinking to yourself, “This CANNOT be real. She has to be making this crap up.” Nope. I’m not making it up. PETA goes on to describe in gruesome detail how animals are being killed, as Dahmer killed his victims. They bemoan the fact that Dahmer’s murders ended but animals are still being killed in the same way every day! “What better way to transform this building’s sordid past than by creating a cruelty-free vegan dining spot in that will inspire visitors to choose nonviolent meals and practice compassion with every bite they take? The name we have in mind is ‘Eat for Life—Home Cooking.’”
If PETA is really “always looking for ways to turn cruelty on its ugly head,” I have a great idea for them.
PETA should open a chain of restaurants called “Eat for Life.” Instead of buying killers’ childhood homes all over the country, which are undoubtedly not located in prime hot spots, they should buy abortion clinics. Their $33 million in donations annually would enable them to purchase a large number of potential locations for celebrating “culinary compassion.” Instead of “turning around” the legacy of a man who killed and cannibalized17 people, PETA should turn around the legacy of people killing millions of people through abortion!! Plus, with locations across the country, primarily in poor, inner-city, black, and Latino communities, PETA could teach “culinary compassion” to a huge percentage of the country who might have been previously unaware of the dangers of meat consumption!
I suggest they start their chain in New York City–plenty of legacies there to “turn around.”
Oh, one last suggestion. I would avoid serving Pepsi products in PETA’s new abortion clinics turned restaurants (for those who like to walk on the vegan equivalent of the wild side with their beverages). Pepsi used fetal stem cell lines (read: tissue from aborted babies) in the testing of their new products.
That’s not very “compassionate,” culinary-wise.
