PETA attempts to prove a point to Nintendo by having Gladiator matches

Sarcastic News: It was reported earlier by other gaming websites that PETA is disgusted with the Pokemon brand and believes it promotes animal abuse.

PETA is taking even further steps to prove their point to Nintendo. Later this week, PETA plans to force death row inmates into gladiator matches. Many individuals feel this is a bit extreme but PETA feels this is the right decision. (Industry, Nintendo, Pokemon, Wii, Wii U)

Foxconn, the media thinking wii u is an add on, this, & a whole lot of other obstacles in nintendos way.. Give em a break, cuz theyre getting attacked from every single direction..

PETA is so broken and corrupted, filled with nothing but hypocrites.

Seriously? They want to combat against pokemon? I mean we all know what happens to nearly 80% of the animals they save, and they are focusing on this?

This group needs to die.

"We who are about to die, salute you!"

Said the Colosseum contestants to PETA's president.

"The amount of time that Pokemon spend stuffed in pokeballs is akin to how elephants are chained up in train carts, waiting to be let out to 'perform' in circuses," ~PETA

Thx Peta, you're always good for a laugh!

This is how normal people prove a point.

Gotta love the lefties. Broken brains seem to be a common affliction. Free Pikachu!!!!!! Save the Medfly!!!
Hicken  +   673d ago
I'm left handed. Got something you wanna get off your chest about me?

Or are you referring to liberals?

I'm probably considered one of those, too. PETA's still stupid.

This is about PETA being completely and utterly ridiculous; don't go dragging other groups into this using blanket statements.

Thank you Hicken.
TacoTaru  +   672d ago
Sorry, I meant no offence to those of sinister dexterity. And you're right, I tend to lump all those narrowly focused groups that defy common sense as lefties. Just a habit. I'm sure there are some crazy righties too.

'PETA plans to force death row inmates into gladiator matches.'

That would be awesome. I've always thought this should come back. Every country would be far better off if we had less people in prisons and if they sold tickets or aired it like Big Brother then they'll make millions and pay off country debts in no time.
Heisenburger  +   673d ago
Right.

Because somebody who committed insurance fraud surely deserve to be murdered for your entertainment.

Good luck explaining that come Judgement Day.

Yep....... Skynet.

Obviously it'd have to be based on the sentence, not just average joe.

Why would would a white-collar criminal be on death row in the first place?

"Why would would a white-collar criminal be on death row in the first place?"

It should be considered if the amount is excessively high but that is our societies standards kill an old lady with a gun - death penalty.

Drive 10's of thousands out of their homes by destroying the mortgage market - Maybe a slap on the wrist by the federal government in the form of a fine that is hilariously lower than the illegal profit you made.

Sorry those people deserve as high of a punishment as a murderer would face, since they ruined the lives of thousands.

Till we stop giving these economic crooks, a get out of jail free card, and start holding them accountable for their actions, nothing will change.

I do really love the mentality here that white collar crimes shouldn't be punished as harshly as other violent crimes. Look at enron you really want to tell me that didn't cause as much if not more suffering than a single murderer.

I wouldn't have it televised or any gladiator system because that is wrong.

Judgement day, as screwed as this world is you really believe some all powerful being exists, if he does he is either totally incompetent or wrote us off along time ago.

Of course that requires the society to hold groups other than the middle class or poor accountable for their actions.

I would be kicking teenagers on minor drug charges out of jail to make room for all the white collar criminals, that deserve to rot away in jail.

If the federal government had the balls to audit these massive banks/holding companies ect and actually make the effort to punish them. That is making the assumption they(feds) aren't on the take to begin with.

Rapists versus murderers (cause if it's rapists vs rapists no one wants to see the loser get raped)

Thieves versus armed robbers

Criminally insane versus death row inmates

Child molesters don't get to fight other inmates, they're pitted against lions.
MattyG  +   673d ago
Wait so rapists get treated better than child molesters? I say we send em both to the lions.
Conzul  +   673d ago
In the US, it's quite easy in certain states for a guy to get labelled a "Sex Offender".
cpayne93  +   673d ago
Thieves get killed too? Just for stealing?

Also I'm really wondering just how serious everyone is saying they would support this...

This video pretty much summarises up PETA, trying to always prove points with hypocrisy.
Nevers0ft  +   673d ago
PETA normally says and does the dumbest things but I fully support bringing back Gladiators, it would be amazing. Wild animals tearing at flesh. Bodies being cleaved in half. Screaming crowds filled with blood lust... Sounds pretty awesome to me, I just have a feeling they're not being sincere :(
Drainage  +   673d ago
why dont they complain about murder in FPS games.. hmm animal lovers are annoying. they probably made STDs too if you know what i mean

Because PETA claims humans are the true evil. They don't care if humans die that's the sad part.

Anyone who rebels against being top of the food chain deserves an Iron deficiency.

Human beings are predators, our eyes are in the front of our heads.

You're just fighting nature, the thing you claim to love. Look at our teeth. We wouldnt have incisors if we were supposed to live on plants.

Tell a lion he shouldnt eat gazelle cos its cruel. You're just being dumb. Anyway, why am I wasting my time, I have a rib-eye to cook.
TheSaint  +   673d ago
Were actually omnivorous. We have incisors for slicing meat and molars for grinding vegetation. So we are adapted for surviving off of both.

Those poor vegetarian lions....

PETA are scumbags who support terrorist behaviour from animal rights movements like the Animal Liberation Front and the like. They butcher the VAST majority of the animals they claim to save, are riddled with hypocrites from top to bottom and are essentially only in it for the celebrity endorsements and money.
They care nothing for animals, only their own carefully crafted publicity machine. Even IF Pokemon were a franchise where each fight ended in the death of an animal, the entire franchise (game, cartoons and movies) could NEVER hope to match the death toll that PETA currently enjoys.
PETA, supported by people to cowardly to actually do the hard work required to make a difference themselves, so donate to PETA to soothe their conscience....how little they truly know about the monsters they support.

PETA is a joke!
