PETA Blowing Smoke in South Dakota

Posted on May 13, 2010

The animal rights group, PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals), claim to be negotiating with billboard companies to install the sign above somewhere near Vermillion, South Dakota, pushing their vegan agenda. If this doesn’t prove how whacky PETA is, I am not sure what will.

First off, PETA claims that eating beef is worse for you than smoking marijuana. I would be more than happy to read some sort of study on this, but it appears to be rabble.

How can one even begin to compare a major source of protein in our country to a substance like marijuana? The last time I checked marijauna was still illegal.

Secondly, not one sign company with a presence in southeast, South Dakota has been contacted by the group, proving this whole ordeal was a sham.

If there is anything to take away from this, it’s that the anti-ag community is working their way into our state, whether it’s through false PR like this or a physical presence. Agriculture is the backbone of South Dakota and the time is now to let your voice be heard.
