The PETA Files: Scott Niedermayer, Duck Defender

It's usually pretty difficult to make the case that PETA and other animal rights groups play on class divisions and bigotry in pursuit of their goal to make meat illegal. But every once in a while they let something slip out that gives it all away. Check out this excerpt of a letter (dated 8/1/07) from Anaheim Duck NHL player Scott Niedermeyer requesting Chicago City Alderman John Pope to vote to uphold the city's ban on the sale of foie gras

"As an Anaheim Duck, I hate to see real ducks tortured so that a handful of wealthy chefs [emphasis mine] can serve their diseased organs. Please uphold this compassionate law."

If PETA had asked Niedermayer to write "wealthy chefs and their capitalist, industrialist, prole-pimping customers," I might be only a little more shocked by their use of classic Marxist agitation propaganda.
Here is a LINK to a pdf version of the entire letter and a link to the blog post that announced the scrivener's enlightening script The PETA Files: Scott Niedermayer, Duck Defender.

I thought Niedermayer was shot by his own troops in Viet Nam?

Seriously, I served foie gras, how come I'm not wealthy?

Oh sure - one little Stanley Cup and now he can tell me how to eat??

Seriously - he's just having flashbacks to all the terribly things Kings fans do in effigy in the stands when the Ducks play the Kings.

who the hell cares what some douche on a hockey team half the country away has to say on what chefs serve in their restaurants? My only hope is that he gets cought in a duck fighting ring and goes down with vick.

Now that we all know what his hot button is, we can play a little hockey of our own.
