Today, the animal rights loonies at the misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) unveiled a new television advertisement lampooning the Senator Larry Craig bathroom scandal. Unsurprisingly, this latest PR stunt looks a lot like something PCRM’s close friends at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) would produce. The “Craig” spot includes a re-enactment of the now infamous toe-tapping incident between two bathroom stalls, an exchange of money, and a rather disturbing pig costume.
There’s a crushing irony in the fact that a group that purposefully hides its true colors from the public would run a media campaign playing off a scandal involving a politician accused of hiding his true colors from the public.
How is PCRM getting away with calling itself a “physicians” committee when less than 4 percent of its members are actual doctors? Beats us. And we’re reminding the press today (click here and here for examples) that:
PCRM is nothing more than a bunch of save-the-chickens extremists. Like everything PCRM does, this latest ad is deceptive propaganda … PCRM has been pretending to be a mainstream medical charity for years. But it’s really just PETA in a lab coat.
Tonight at its Washington, DC headquarters PCRM is hosting a “special reception” to strategize about how to influence the federal Farm Bill, which is the topic of the group’s ad. Here’s the invitation to the event and here’s where you can sign up to attend. If you’re in the area, you might want to stop by and let these animal-liberation lackeys know how you feel about their latest trickery.
