Join the Pavlik Morozov fanclub!

"Since your daddy is teaching you the wrong lessons about right and wrong, you should teach him that fishing is killing and killing is wrong."

If you're a fisherman, PETA wants your children to think that you're a deranged bloodthirsty killer. From Fishing Hurts:

[…] starting on September 24, Fish Amnesty Day, activists will take to the water with their sights on dads who are teaching their kids to abuse animals.

PETA’s pro-fish leaflet reminds fishers and their families that fish feel pain and fear when they are impaled in the mouth and ripped from their underwater homes and that they deserve to be treated with kindness, just like all animals.

Before they are desensitized to the suffering of animals, PETA aims to help kids see the violent bloody truth behind their fathers’ outdoor pastime.
[Emphasis not in the original.]
Consistent with established 20thC authoritarian techniques, PETA would reverse the traditional hierarchy of parenting — ideologically cultivated children assuming authority over their reactionary parents (cf. Pavlik Morozov). Fisherman daddies are first given the opportunity to be re-educated. Presumably if you're a fisherwoman, you're just a victim of patriarchal brainwashing and you're let off the hook, figuratively speaking of course.

Fish are filthy bastards that defecate in the water they breath.
Kill them.
Kill them all.
And serve them ON toast when they ARE toast!
