PETA

Swats at Obama

for Killing That Fly!

6/17/2009 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PETA is finally going after President Barack Obama for delivering capital punishment to a housefly on the White House grounds yesterday -- a death that was caught on tape.


When asked for comment, here's the statement PETA released: 

"He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."

We're told the fly's carcass has been moved to a secret location ... we're guessing the bottom of a White House trash can.

If a PETA member is driving down the road and a bug hits their windshield do they pull over and try to do mouth to mouth with the insect?

This just proves that PETA is a totally rediculous organization! A fly? Flies only live for what 24 hours or so anyway! PETA you folks need to eat some protein. Go out and have a good old steak and leave everyone else alone.

Don't eat in a PETA maniac's house. Betcha they let all kinds of vermin up in their house trying to uphold God's creatures. That's why God let insects reproduce so many and so quickly. He knew humans would slap them into oblivion!

Next PETA is gonna press charges against an important person doing mass murder whenever that person walks across a lawn. Can you imagine all the dead ants people create? Or swatting a hornet or a wasp that's out to get YOU for disturbing them!

My only hope is that the fly had just come in from being on a pile of Bo's crap.
