PETA Joins Call of Duty Protest: No One Surprised

dog

TimAnyone who listened to yesterday’s podcast, knows my Black Doom Award went to stupid kids with nothing better to do than to protest Call of Duty: World at War’s cruelty to virtual dogs. Unsurprisingly, Joystiq reports that PETA joined in the protest recently as a post on their blog praised the students’ efforts and revealed that the organization was sending Activision some copies of Nintendogs, adding that they hope “the next Call of Duty game will have you unlock achievements for petting the dogs you encounter and going on walks or playing Frisbee with them.” Wow.

    Not surprising. Not one bit. Oh foolish PETA, little do they know is that they really have no influence over anyone. And that image still cracks me up.

    I’m for animal rights and all, but this just crosses the line to downright ridiculous.. When I read this on Joystiq a few minutes ago, I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or feel pity for humanity..

    On top of that, there’s that whole racism thing about RE5..

    tsk tsk tsk…

    We should retaliate and make a game were you kill Pomeranians. I just need some graphics… Maybe a ‘Metal Slug’ kinda game?

    Saddest part of this whole affair, Peta is the US leader in euthenising pets. They think even having an animal as a pet is a crime… so obviously the choice is to adopt and kill pets, right?

  5. ultimateDK says:

    *facepalm* Why aren’t they more angry at a game like “Big Game Hunting” or “Duck Hunt” where the main objective is actually shooting the animal, as opposed to it not even being important in the game like CoD. People are morons sometimes *sigh*

    Hehe…I just realized…Duck Hunt….shooting dogs….heheh…

  6. Soon they’ll be moaning about killing the mutant dogs in RE 4&5… and just about every other zombie game ever.

    Come to think about it PETA, why don’t you complain about the disgusting cooking of animals as portrayed in Cooking Ma… oh too late…

    Duck Hunt! Wahahahaha!
    Good one!

    PETA joining proves that this whole thing is absolutely ridiculous. PETA doesn’t do anything sensible.

    There are people in Africa starving to death and being forced to eat mud pies and these idiot kids are worried about killing virtual dogs?! Shame on them! Get something important to worry about!

    I would bet that they are just a bunch of kids with no morals that are just looking for something to complain about so that they can get in the newspaper. Jerks. And PETA is no good, either.

    And by the way, if a evil Nazi dog is about to rip out your throat with its teeth, I wouldn’t go up to it and pet it. I WOULD KILL IT!!! Is that what PETA wants me to do? Not defend myself if an evil Nazi dog tries to kill me? Cause you know, I’m sure that PETA would prefer that the DOG lived over me, a HUMAN, right?!

    Oh absolutely. Humans are destorying the world, so we have to die so the rare salmon in the river can live. We have to die so the bloody-thirsty dog can live. It disgusts me.

    Also, I love when politics crosses over into the gaming world, and the gamers, who are the commonsensical people, have to defend the games. Oh how fun ensues…

  13. zijjh says:

    You know, it may sound contradictory to my past posts (re:Ray=Tingle), but I just don’t care enough to even get up in arms on either side. I really don’t care if PETA wants to yell or some teens, or even gamers.

    Anyways, that’s all.
    Peace Out!

  14. Noodle says:

    They should look at Far Cry. Seriously you roam around and you just shoot any animal you want. admittedly, it’s not dogs, but they’re all about animals and crap right?

  15. Ryman says:

    Lawl, PETA sent Activision copies of Nintendogs…do they realize you can throw bars of gold and toys at the dogs’ heads? I use to do that when I owned it because it was so funny…

    …not that I would do that in real life mind you.

    They should really be protesting about Pokemon. Seriously, you catch monsters in a little tiny ball, then you make them fight each other for money and fame. Kind of like dog fighting, but with monsters and it’s actually considered moral.

    Oh, I finally understand! PETA hates humans! Everyone in PETA wishes that they were animals! Well you know what? I wished that they were animals, too. I wish that each and every one of the members of PETA could be that poor, bloodthirsty dog. I wish this because when all of those bloodthirsty dogs runs at me to try to rip my throat out, I CAN KILL EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM WITH MY KNIFE!!!

    I’d rather shove a shotgun in their mouths and pull the trigger! BOOM GOES THE HEAD!

    I’m waiting for the day PETA reveals that all along they were just playing a joke on us. They’re simply a satire of animal rights activists.

  19. bob the commentor says:

    sooo, they’re telling us not to shoot the dogs. but instead distract them with a frisbee?

    yeah lemme go try that, if i dont come back just assume the contradictory happened…

    I was going to post something that basically boiled down to “ZOMG P3ta are teh stupidz!!!”

    But then I read your post and I lost the will to live.

    Ho hum.

    That was sarcasm, bad sarcasm, but sarcasm none the less…

    I know. And the sad thing is that so many don’t actually know they are. XD

  23. CliveMcMan says:

    Hahahaha, makes me laugh things like this do. Why does anyone get up in arms about anything like this? Its as close to completely irrelevant as you can get. Its not a dog, its a bunch of stats and polygons moving around a virtual map, on some peoples screens.

    Gamers aren’t usually influential enough to count towards anything, and are usually too busy playing games to go out and perform animal cruelty/attrocities of war/paedophilia/murder/GTA whatever games getting released latest.

    -because its necessary to post an extreme situation that just makes everyone madder, either for or against-

    I should go protest something about police corruption or something, see if I can get a copy of GTA:Chinatown wars 😀

    Also – while I’m on the case, just feel like I need to post this (I’m steady turning into true geek!)
    ‘PETA’s slogan is “animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment.” ‘ – wikipedia
    Didn’t God, arguably the most important entity in the universe, say the exact opposite to Adam and Eve? (While I agree with them on not experimenting on them [too much], animals are [i]totally[/i] ours to eat/wear/use for entertainment!)

    You know, I have never met someone who likes PETA. Even my animal loving sister thinks they are annoying.

    It depends on what the experiment aims to accomplish. For example, I think testing experimental treatments for illnesses is justified, as long as the doctors are taking steps to cause the animals as little pain as possible in the process.

    Also, what does PETA mean by use for entertainment? Are they anti Sea World? Are they against Zoos?

    tis a very sad world we live in, I can go and kill hundreds of thousands of Japanese soldiers and no one gives a damn, but the minute I kill one dog people are outraged……WTF!?!?

    ….what?

  28. Flu-Bird says:
