PETA Goes After Mafia Wars, We All Lose

We have to admit, we hate “Mafia Wars”. Not the game itself, which is your typical Facebook stuff, but rather the endless ads and spam that wind up on our feed because our friends refuse to stop playing the game.  That and the owner of the company that runs it, Zynga, admitted in public to being a sleazeball.

Similarly, while we respect anybody who loves animals and doesn’t want them to suffer or be hurt, we hate PETA because, well, they’re self-righteous d-bags who’d machine gun a kindergarten to free their pet hamster.  Whether it’s dressing up as the KKK to protest a dog show or treating women like meat, they really kind of suck at that whole “human decency” thing.

And just how low are they willing to go, now that Mafia Wars is adding animals as weapons?  Their cheap shot after the jump.

“‘Bully breeds’ like your beloved late American bulldog, Zinga, are also the breeds of choice for dogfighters and thugs who want a ‘macho’ animal to intimidate others, guard their property, or make them money by winning fights. Every day, PETA staffers meet dogs who have been trapped for years at the end of heavy tractor-trailer chains with nothing but bare patches of dirt and plastic barrels for shelter. These dogs are usually full of heartworms, emaciated, and scarred all over. They are often physically abused and starved, sometimes to death, for losing in illegal dogfights or for being ‘bad guards’ or ‘not mean enough.’ The people who acquire them do so because they have been taught that having one of these dogs is ‘cool’ and ‘tough,’ but they have no idea about the care and feelings of the animal they have enslaved.”

OK, so maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that a group that compared chickens being killed to the Holocaust tried to appeal to the feelings of the CEO over his beloved pet dog.  Also, PETA seems a bit hazy on the fact that these, uh, aren’t real dogs.  Maybe they’re just hungry.  Here, guys, have a cheeseburger!
