Skip to comments.Rove Finds Himself in PETA's Crosshairs (Dove Hunting on Labor Day)
Posted on 08/15/2007 9:07:02 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
As if he hasn't taken enough heat for what he did in the White House, Karl Rove is coming under fresh attack for what he plans to do after he leaves on August 31. Specifically, his Labor Day weekend plan to go dove hunting down in Texas, which The Sleuth disclosed earlier this week.
PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, was so outraged to learn about Rove's hunting excursion that it faxed a letter to the White House late Wednesday.
"Dear Mr. Rove," began the letter from President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "From your frequent hunting trips to your bizarre little rap at the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association dinner ("I like to go home, get a drink, and tear the tops off of small animals"), it is clear that you lack the ability to empathize with other living beings. You consistently prove that you care less about animal welfare than Alberto Gonzales cares about habeas corpus."
And if that isn't enough to make you think Ingrid needs to spend some time in anger management, wait 'til you hear the rest.
Newkirk notes that the first thing Rove plans to do upon leaving the White House at the end of his month is "go dove hunting, i.e., kill little birds who are the international symbol of peace. You will leave politics to spend more time with your family only to destroy the families of other species."
Her last line could well set off alarm bells at the Secret Service: "I have just one suggestion: Please take Dick Cheney along on your hunting trips."
No response yet from the White House. But if we get (non-Photoshopped) photos of Rove cuddling with his dogs, you'll be first to see them.

Tis everywhere I believe. Migratory bird federal law.
I'm there with my 8 shot and 20 gauge over a field of 10 day cut sunflower.
I sure would like to see Congress pass a law making it mandatory for people to have REAL jobs. Maybe these PETA buffoons could take over for all the illegal aliens who are going home. Their skill levels appear to be about the same.
Well, they had best not get in his crosshairs.
Don’t know how Carl Rove feels about it, but God help the PETA creep who hoses up my Sept. dove hunting.
Screw off, Ingrid! I haven’t been dove hunting for years, but because of you, I’m going on the first day of the season.
Please don’t insult the illegal aliens.
95% of PETA members are rebellious, anorexic teenage girls.
If he’s not wearing white he should have a good day. :^)
LOL! They are also fond of taking off their clothes in public. Exhibitionists.
I’ll be hunting early and late on opening day. Maybe I’ll take pics of my birds and send them to PETA.
...it is clear that you lack the ability to empathize...
So, why the letter?
I wish that everyone here would post their favorite dove recipe and we could send a link for this thread to the PETA gal.

I’d be more than glad to be out there with him. I’ve already got the day scheduled off for my annual Opening Day shotgun salute to the doves. I still need to go get a license, but darn near everything else is in readiness now.
Get ‘em while they’re charging!...heh heh heh
Yup and these Girls are clashing with Black Americans who are supporting Vick in his “dog fighting” scandal. This will be fun to watch!
Over here, nobody calls a domestic pigeon a "dove" - except for the ornithologists and the peaceniks.
