PETA Trolls Oregonís Militant Ranchers With Vegan-Jerky Delivery

The militant ranchers who are protesting federal policies by occupying an Oregon bird sanctuary, the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, have appealed for snacks, and PETA has answered the call by trolling them with a delivery of vegan jerky. PETA being PETA, it's taking the opportunity to spin this from a story about armed citizens threatening violence and illegally taking over buildings into one about the evils of animal agriculture.

The animals-rights organization says in a blog post that the package will fashionably be "hand-delivered" to the ranchers, now calling themselves Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, by staffers with signs reading, "The End (of Animal Agriculture) Is Nigh: Get Out Now!" Twitter, predictably, reacted to PETA's preachy tweets with scorn ó asking, "You for real?" ó but others have gotten in on the fun, too, with Redditors planning baby food and glitter packages and The Oregonian running a joke poll on the top snacks to send ranchers with the munchies. As that publication pointed out, Ammon Bundy, one of the ringleaders of the group, said that he and his pals are so committed that they're willing to stay for years, but apparently they all forgot to ask their moms to pack their lunch boxes for the field trip.

6. A Facebook friend of mine...

 

...who some might know if they're industrial music fans (Tom Shear of Assemblage 23) posted a pic of the package he sent to these guys. Contents: a copy of "Audacity of Hope."

So. Much. Win.

7. I agree with PETA but I wouldn't have the guts to help out.

 

Someone unarmed but carrying some kind of anti-ranching sign walks up to a building full of heavily armed and trigger-happy RWNJ's? The PETA activist(s) would probably be safe but there's a danger that someone will open fire.
