It seems that almost every episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska has had some sort of hunting aspect to it, and Sargent Slaughter herself took to her facebook wall this past weekend to defend the home-land, and silence the nay-sayers, including taking a digg at PETA.
Sarah wrote: “Tonight’s hunting episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska ‘controversial’? Really? Unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather couch or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight’s episode. I remain proudly intolerant of anti-hunting hypocrisy. :)”
This came just a day after she took another dig at the animal rights activists, including a jab at PETA on the same wall:
Tune in to “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” this Sunday at 9pm ET/8pm central onTLC to see how we fill our freezers and feed our families withhome-grown tundra-roaming Alaskan wild game. We’ll show you how Alaskans hunt. As my friend Sue says, “the tundra is the type of landscape that will make a man out of anybody.” And, PETA, please remember: Alaskans eat, therefore we hunt.
PETA has yet to respond, but we have to expect that they are building up something huge against Palin, who is America’s public enemy number one in the eyes of some. We expect them to unleash an attack on her that would resemble that of a Lion snacking on a Zebra.
This past Sunday’s episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska had them hunting for Carabou. Check out the preview of the “controversial” labeled episode below if you missed it.
Does PETA raise a stink over every celebrity who…..fishes? What is it about hunting that brings about this rancour that fishing doesn’t?
