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.

Why is the only "positive" news that we get about Obama about his family dog, sweet vacations and dates that he takes his family on with our tax money and now killing flys?

So then do no PETA supporters drive cars? That would mean you can kill an insect while driving. Do they not go for walks outside? You could step on an ant and kill it. Give me a break, these people are ridiculous.

It's almost as if PETA is so bored that they have to watch for dumb things to complain about. PETA people need to get a life!!

PETA is totally looney! How about spending time harrassing that idiot pet serial killer in Florida - the one that was let out on supervised house arrest as he isn't a threat to himself or others. I seem to remember a bunch of psychiatric theory that many killers of human beings start out torturing and killing animals first!!! Go bzzzzzzzzzz around him PETA!

My post says nothing about how I feel about PETA or animals in any way. You response has nothing to do with what I said. I hate flies. You can't comprehend a simple statement...Insects are not animals. Read a book, you illiterate tool. I was simply pointing out to you a fact. You're the dumb ass that doesn't comprehend this. Never mind. Your obviously an imbecile.
