Consumer Freedom Slams Paramount For Encouraging Kids To Think About Animal Rights
Groups like the The Center for Consumer Freedom continue to frighten the hell out of me. Their latest gift to the world is a critique of the movie Charlotte’s Web as a propaganda tool for animal rights. Oh, the horror. From the article,
“One Charlotte’s Web commercial airing on Nickelodeon (oddly enough, during an episode of Mr. Meaty) shows heroic bike-riding teens in pig-snout masks “liberating” (read: stealing) a barn full of pigs. Is this illegal? Definitely. Is it appropriate advertising for a G-rated movie? No way. Does Paramount Pictures understand what it’s wading into?”
Oooh…look out! Hey Consumer Freedom, get a grip. Wait, you have more to bitch about?
Wait a minute? Is the SaveWilbur site actually making kids think about where their food comes from? Is Paramount actively saying we shouldn’t ignore animal abuse and should work to become more aware of the food industry? How dare they!
Nice. And you link to a site called Trans-Fat Facts that promotes the use of that crap in food. What’s more damaging to our children’s health?
If you want to carry a good laugh into the weekend, you can read more of their article here. Just try not to throw your computer out the window after daring to explore more of their site.
Thanks to ‘Green Is The New Red‘ for the link!
