This Week In Insanity: Ep. 30 - Meatless Mondays in Schools - Thu, 25 Sep 2014 17:04:12

Elementary students at a few schools in California and Texas are being forced to participate in "Meatless Mondays", in which they eat a vegetarian meal on that day every week. School officials make claims that it is healthier for them, but they have no reasoning to back that up.

They are essentially forcing these students into a lifestyle, one that animal rights groups have certainly been pushing towards children. Making it a rule, however - Now That's Insane!



This Week In Insanity Ep. 29 - Pamela Anderson Refuses to Support ALS Research Because of Animal Testing - Fri, 29 Aug 2014 19:51:35

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has helped raise funds and awareness for ALS research. Many celebrities have used their status to help the cause, but one celeb - Pamela Anderson - has refused. Instead, she uses her platform to protest ALS research because of animal testing.

Using a public forum to support animal rights at the expense of human welfare - Now That's Insane!



This Week In Insanity Ep. 28 - PETA Stages Farm Video - Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:35:59

PETA recently released a video on its website supposedly documenting abuse of dairy cows on a North Carolina farm. But many aspects of the video appear to be staged. This would seem to go right along with PETA's typical messaging strategy of lying in hopes that public outrage will outweigh common sense. Faking animal abuse just to give farmers a bad name - Now That's Insane!



This Week In Insanity Ep. 27 - HSUS Needs Body Armor? - Fri, 20 Jun 2014 16:09:21

HSUS volunteers have been spotted at search and seizures of dogfighting rings, after arrests have already been made, wearing bulletproof vests and sporting badges that say "Humane Society Rescue Team". They are posing as law enforcement in order to legitimize their efforts. But how do they afford this unnecessary body armor? Playing dress up at the cost of donor money -- That's Insane!



This Week In Insanity Ep. 26 - PETA's Classless "Got Autism?" Campaign - Fri, 06 Jun 2014 20:32:23

Recently, PETA made the rounds on the internet for a 2008 print ad that re-surfaced on their website that uses the phrase "Got Autism?" (a twist on the popular "Got Milk" ads). They attempted to link Autism with dairy consumption, citing questionable sources for this claim. For PETA, this is business as usual, but for us in the real world -- That's Insane!
