Who created the petakillsanimals website?
The Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), formerly the Guest Choice Network, is an American non-profit firm that lobbies on behalf of the fast food, meat, alcohol and tobacco industries.
They were against banning the use of trans fats, they front the propaganda website known as petakillsanimals and stage various acts of cruelty in order to claim animal rights groups as hypocritical. Richard Berman, the founder of CCF, has used his millions to lobby against mad cow disease warnings (with the CCF), against raising the minimum wage (With his organization The Employment Policies Institute [EPI]), against drinking and driving awareness (The “American Beverage” Institute [ABI]), - which has advocated for the allowance of drunk driving and only apprehending people “really drunk”-, against obesity warnings and tobacco warnings.
He also leads The Center for Union Facts (CUF), which argues that unions are corrupt and bad for workers. Their particular targets include the “poor and uneducated”.
One of CCF’s campaigns suggested that pregnant women eat more fish, as to downplay the levels of mercury in seafood. Another campaign suggests that mad cow disease is only a minor concern. One of their Print Ads infamously headlines with “You’re Too Stupid”. Their print ad “Trial Lawyer’s Next Cash Cow” suggests that parents should not be held responsible for their child’s health. They constantly poke fun at “fat guys” despite apparently being for “their freedom” like a true ‘Merican.
Their clients include Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, Arby’s, and Hooters.
And they’re your number one source of information, anti-animal rights folks!
