PETA to Hasselbeck

'Cluck You!'

8/2/2007 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whoopi's long overdue employment announcement wasn't the only news on "The View" yesterday. Elisabeth Hasselbeck revealed the thigh slapping news that she has chopped off a chicken's head -- and PETA thinks that's just foul!

Chicken and Elisabeth Hasselbeck
After using hand motions to describe how to accurately decapitate a chicken, grossing out the audience more than she usually does, polite talk then resumed. Now Lizzy's in the soup with PETA, and they had this nugget for the right wing chicken winger:

"PETA has two words for Hasselbeck, 'Cluck you!' Next to Barbara and Joy, who expressed compassion, Elisabeth sat there chirping about the joys of killing defenseless birds. Conservatives love animals too, and she ruffled a lot of feathers today. Now that Whoopi has joined the show, maybe it's time for Hasslebeck's head to go on the chopping block."

Reps for "The View" had no comment.

You people need to get a life! GEEZ! How do you think Chickens are butchered?! Good thing PETA wasn't organized when this country was founded...none of us would be here...because we wouldn't have survived. YOU ARE IDIOTS!

THE REASON THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT PETA WAS BECAUSE OF THE BOOK "SKINNY BITCH", WHICH IS A TOUGH-LOVE DIET BOOK THAT GIVES VERY BLUNT DIET ADVICE, BUT IT ALSO ADVOCATES BECOMING VEGAN FOR WEIGHT CONTROL. I OWN THE BOOK, IT IS ABSOLUTELY GREAT. GOOD ADVICE, AND VERY FUNNY. THE GIRLS ON THE VIEW FOCUSED ON THE VEGETARIAN PART OF IT, BUT IT IS MORE THAN THAT, AND I FOUND IT REALLY HELPFUL.

One way or the other could care less about this lady. She has no impact on my life. Just the sheer amusement of reading ramblings on TMZ. But thank god so many people hate her, Theres no bad publicity. It only makes the ratings go up.

You may disagree with her, But it is still The View....... Women with different view points take it or leave it. You hate her.... don't watch. Or write the producers.

It would also seem to me that most people do not kill chickens themselves now days, they just buy it frozen in a bag. And it would not only gross most people out but frighten them as well. SHE WAS ON SURVIVOR folks. No food, no comfort,no grocery stores..... She rose to the occasion to do it, she's proud she was able to do it.... Big deal!

Piss off PETA! I am a conservative and while I love animals, I have been deer hunting, duck hunting and dove hunting. Alas, these two feminine hands have even SKINNED a deer. OH THE HORROR!!!!!!! And I'll also say this...if I was hungry, I'd do it again. They are ANIMALS after all.

Oh. I don't watch the View. Talk about a worthless piece of television. All you people that bitch need to get jobs.

Too funny, how do you libs think your chicken dinner gets to the freaking table?

Sorcery?

You twits didn't say ONE FREAKING word during "Simple Life" when the family they were living with did this. Oh but it's okay if it is vapid talentless "socialites"(socialists?) doing it.....

Right?

Do people that think meat is murder eat eggs? I'm just wondering. I guess my breakfast was scrambled chicks. Maybe for supper --- yard bird on a bun!!!! Get over it people!!! I like chicken and I like cows and yes I eat the eggs from the ass of the chickens. Let's all have some chicken, I like mine fried, baked, broiled, on a bun, off a bun. Most definitely, Dead!! Get over it already!!!

Who cares what Peta thinks? They go in so many ways at once you can't keep track. One minute they are sueing the Dairy Council for Tongue in cheeck "Happy Cow" ads, the next there destroying public and private property in a bid for attention. They send members to do a false Running of the bulls in Spain to insult the Spanish and Sue dreamworks for a cartoon of a boy fishing from the moon. All the while there celebrity Spokeswoman who is denouncing the Evil Kentucky Fried Chicken is Wearing sheep skin ugg boots.......

What the heck?

18 WAYS TO BE A GOOD LIBERAL


1. You have to be against capital punishment, but support abortion on demand.

2. You have to believe that businesses create oppression and governments create prosperity.

3. You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens are more of a threat than U.S. nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Chinese and North Korean communists.

4. You have to believe that there was no art before federal funding.

5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical changes in the earth's climate and more affected by soccer moms driving SUVs.

6. You have to believe that gender roles are artificial, but being homosexual is natural.

7. You have to believe that the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of federal funding.

8. You have to believe that the same teacher who can't teach 4th-graders how to read is somehow qualified to teach those same kids about sex.

9. You have to believe that hunters don't care about nature, but PETA activists do.

10. You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

11. You have to believe that Mel Gibson spent $25 million of his own money to make "The Passion of the Christ" for financial gain only.

12. You have to believe the NRA is bad because it supports certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good because it supports certain parts of the Constitution.

13. You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.

14. You have to believe that Margaret Sanger and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than Thomas Jefferson, Gen. Robert E. Lee, and Thomas Edison.

15. You have to believe that standardized tests are racist, but racial quotas and set-asides are not.

16. You have to believe that the only reason socialism hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried is because the right people haven't been in charge.

17. You have to believe that homosexual parades displaying drag queens and transvestites should be constitutionally protected, and manger scenes at Christmas should be illegal.

18. You have to believe that this message is a part of a vast, right-wing conspiracy.


GOD BLESS AMERICA -- ooops, can't do that either

Didn't the chicken incident happen on survivor? That was already on TV. What is the big deal?

Both of my parents were raised on farms in Colorado, and they raised chickens too. Sometimes you have to kill some of them for food. My grandmother did it for over 75 years. If Elisabeth was on Survivor, her group wasn't the only one that had to kill a chicken and cook it. It is a fact of life unless you are a vegan.

PETA can eat me. They are a group of fanatical dumbasses who take a good cause - humane treatment of animals - and turn it into a joke with the depths of stupidity they reach.

Also, why is it always mentioned that Elisabeth is a conservative? I don't hear everyone categorizing Barbara Walters and Joy Behar as liberals everytime they're mentioned, though obviously they are or else Elisabeth's political views wouldn't be noteworthy.

Liberals: Fighting to keep free speech free - as long as you don't have an opposing opinion.

Peta takes it toooo far sometimes. and so do the idiots who agree that everyone should be a vegetarian.

I posted meetyourmeat.com for all of you callous people posting the trite and overused "LOL im in yer internets eating ur chicken" comments. Do you have the guts enough to actually watch what you're talking about happen? Animals feel pain and fear just as humans do, there's no reason they should be tortured so even if you do feel you have to eat their flesh despite all of the great alternatives available now.

In China they eat cats and dogs and we think that's horrible over here because we're raised to think of dogs and cats as companion animals, not food. Cows and chickens are just as smart as dogs and pigs are actually proven to be smarter--and quite closely linked to humans in terms of DNA--and if raised as pets behave just the same as a cat or dog would. What makes us eating pigs, cows, and chickens any different then Asian countries serving up cats and dogs? Because you've been told it's different your whole life, just as they have? Once you've been unplugged from the matrix of the meat industry there's no going back--it's hideously inhumane and a living nightmare. To answer that reality with "yum" is incredibly ignorant, immature, and downright brutal.

The problem animal lovers everywhere have with Elizabeth's description of the death of the chicken is the brainless smile she had on her face as she described with glee how the poor thing suffered. That was really unnecessary, and just further proof that she's a hideous individual with no moral character--it's been replaced by a fascist political agenda.

The View would do well to get rid of this sadist!
