PETA Wants Golfer to Change Nickname to ‘Tofu’ From ‘Beef’

PETA Wants Golfer to Change Nickname to ‘Tofu’ From ‘Beef’

Politicize all the things!!!

PETA never misses an opportunity to spread their propaganda! They have chosen golfer Andrew Johnston as their latest target, whose nickname “Beef” has sent the animal rights group into a tizzy.

They want him to change his nickname to Tofu. Yes….TOFU. They even asked him to become a vegan.

They said:

“Like many others, we’ve been enthusiastically following your career, and we thought we’d send you a gift of delicious vegan steaks and burgers in the hope that you’ll consider adopting a kinder, healthier vegan lifestyle, which would pave the way for a new nickname: Andrew ‘Tofu’ Johnston.”

“Your new nickname would also raise awareness of the urgent need to move towards a cruelty-free lifestyle to offset the worst effects of climate change. According to the United Nations, animal agriculture is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.”

I used to be a vegetarian and I think tofu has a bad reputation (it tastes like whatever you cook it with), but come on. Johnston’s nickname isn’t even derived from the delicious food product.

His hair caused the nickname. His friends called him “Beefhead” and the name “Beef” stuck.

He kindly turned down PETA.

However, Beef has always embraced his nickname. His Twitter handle is @BeefGolf and received sponsorship from Arby’s. He also owns a new wedge that lists the cuts of beef.

    Nah. It’s not stupid at all.

    PETA managed to get such widespread attention out of a single tweet that we’re talking about them.

    That’s Trump-level media manipulation. 🙂 (See what I did there?)

Tonite I’m in for pot roast. uuummm!!!

Obama grade stupid!

PETA exists for the purpose of pulling publicity stunts and issuing press releases. Just do not expect them to actually treat animals well. They kill animals entrusted to their care.

Notice the source, here. This source would otherwise be one of PETA’s natural allies.

He wore his Arby’s short last week… GOOOOOO, BEEEEEEF!

While at dinner one night with a few friends at a popular San Francisco restaurant, some vegan began making a scene replete with obscenities because there was nothing on the menu for him to eat, “it’s all meat!” The name of the restaurant: The House of Prime Rib.

About two years ago, the SF Chronicle carried a story of a greasy-spoon Chinese lunch place in the South of Market area that posted a sign that there were no vegan options available so don’t ask. The vegans went apoplectic.

But that is not the worst of vegans. Within the last few months, also as reported in the SF Chronicle, a husband-wife couple who own a very popular vegan restaurant stated during an interview that they raise farm animals for their personal consumption. Of course they felt compelled to state that the animals were humanely raised and do not suffer during slaughter with a hope to assuage the delicate feelings of the vegan crowd.

That did not satisfy the militant vegans. Demands that they sell their restaurant to true vegans were the mildest of the demands made. They reported receiving multiple death threats.

Because of episodes like those sometimes I feel like going to a vegan restaurant and after perusing the menu standing on top of the table shouting out in the most abrasive voice possible why can’t I get a bacon cheeseburger in here.

If I were him I’d tell them to open wide, I’m gonna slap my meat across your grill.

Wonder how they will do Terrance “Pot Roast” Knighton ?

It takes a special kind of talent, a very special kind of stupid, to come up with this kind of idea.

I plan to change Bambi’s name to venison this fall.
You’d think they’d love Andy’s nickname, think of all the globull warming that gets stopped whenever a cow is “murdered” and can’t fart anymore.

At times such as these, I’m reminded of Ron White’s answer to one of his vegan friends who complained that there had to be “beef broth” in the soup that he ordered and that it was making the friend feel queasy.

Ron White quipped back: “Your system is kicking back … broth? You’re a manly man, aren’t you.”

His vegan friend apparently said something about “well, what are YOU doing to save the planet?”

Ron White replied “I’m eating the cows. But I’m only one man.”

I am fairly familiar with PETA and their antics considering their headquarters is downtown in the city I live.

PETA couldn’t give two craps about animals. They take in stray pets and kill them mercilessly without even trying to get them placed in good homes.

A couple of years ago, some PETA employees were arrested for dumping hundreds of carcasses in dumpsters in North Carolina to save the expense of incinerating them.

PETA’s only concern is in garnering enough donations to continue maintaining the pretty headquarters building in prime real estate right on the Elizabeth River in downtown Norfolk, and in being able to pay the executive salaries of the paid employees that work there.

The way they do this is to do enough outlandish things to get them publicity. It doesn’t matter to them how stupid or crazy they look to “normal” people…we aren’t their target audience. They are simply trying to stay as much in the consciousness of people stupid enough to donate money to them that they can continue bilking those people effectively.

And articles like this really help them in that endeavor. I’m sure they appreciate it.

In my experience, the most effective way of combating the stupidity of PETA is to ignore them as the irrelevancy that they are. As an added bonus, that REALLY torques them off.

    That almost sounds like the SPLC.

“As PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk has said, “When it comes to pain, love, joy, loneliness, and fear, a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.”

“Only prejudice allows us to deny others the rights that we expect to have for ourselves.”

Beef you must repent! 🙂

If the Lord didn’t want us to eat cows, why did he make them out of steak?

    Indeed. And there is no doubt that the pig was divinely inspired. How else to explain one animal that can make bacon, ham, AND sausage? Did I mention bacon? Sorry, I know there are a lot of non-pork eaters on this site, but diversity or something.

I think they should call him Teeth.
