Amazingly, the people who side with PETA and express smirking outrage over Mitt Romney putting a dog on the roof of his car think it’s hilarious to torture and humiliate a poor orange tabby cat.
In a nonsensical video to promote the host city of the Democratic National Convention, the Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee hauled a distressed cat around town to awkwardly pose it in front of Charlotte landmarks with references to cats. The banality of it all is criminal enough, but look at the abuse they inflict on the animal.
The creature is obviously miserable throughout, seeking a getaway when not being manhandled and shoved into the video frame, legs akimbo. Good thing it didn’t sprint into traffic or leap into the path of the oncoming train. Look at its pitiful face in the final frame where one eye twitches and the Committee thinks looks like a wink. It’s not.
If this were a real movie, it is highly doubtful that the American Humane Association would sign off on the treatment of the animal during the making of the movie.
Shame on the DNC. Someone needs to rescue poor Fernando from their inhumane clutches.
A Metro UK Daily Mail story found at SooperMexican’s website presents a new potential protest that could be used here in the US to persuade the Ground Zero megamosque developers to move their insult to an inoffensive location:
It seems an Austrian man upset his mosque neighbors by yodeling one day during their call to prayer. He was fined 700 euros (roughly $940.45).
The world has now come down to…
Greg Gutfeld, host of the 3 am show “Red Eye” on Fox News, has said he will construct a gay bar next door to the Cordoba Initiative mosque if they insist on locating themselves on the perimeter of the Ground Zero war memorial site. Perhaps Gutfeld should instead consider building a yodeling cultural center (complete with a gay bar).
Or for your listening pleasure, click on the picture above of I Love To Yodel!: The Best Of Country Yodel, Vol. 2 for yodel classics such as “Sweet Little Lover,” “Old Cockatoorali,” “Pappy’s Mountain Still,” “My Pony, My Guitar, And Me,” “Dreammyland Bay” and the eponymous “I Love To Yodel.” (Note this album is volume two.]
That’s for the good ol’ USA cowboy-style yodeling.
