PETA Slams Barack Obama For Killing A Fly

President Barack Obama reflected on what fatherhood means to him and wrote down his thoughts. Read his original piece at

On Tuesday, a fly intruded during Obama‘s interview with CNBC correspondent John Harwood at the White House. Obama swatted the fly and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is not happy, so they sent him a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

“We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals,” PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. “We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.”

    gosh. after reading that comment i feel completely heartless and stupid. i still hate flies (no i wasn’t brought up that way so no one brainwashed me) and it’s an ingrained irrational fear. i understand that all animals also have a right to live but people have been killing flies since the world started…if we don’t kill them they get eaten. frankley i don’t care and it’s not news, and the fact that this became news lol because people anticipated that ofcourse peta would get their panties in a knot over this made this absolutely hilarious and took away valuable air time that should have been dedicated to the iranian protests or health care reform or something else. gah. this fly is not more special than all the other one’s many people kill. WHERE’S PETA TO CHASTISE ME WHEN I KILL A FLY ALL THE TIME…nowhere to be found. eat it peta.

    And this is another reason why PETA has no moral authority in the public domain when it comes to animals. The good work that they would like to accomplish is wasted by stupid acts like this one. Shame on PETA.
