Seal Heart

Canada's Governor General, Michaëlle Jean, ate a portion of a seal's heart at an Inuit celebration in Rankin Inlet. Animal rights activists and members of the EU are disgusted and have condemned the G.G. for her action. Inuit leaders have praised her for her show of respect for their culture and I concur. Animal Rights activists and European leaders who are shocked and disappointed in Michaëlle Jean have shown how myopic and enthocentristic they are. Time to grow up and gain some perspective.

Exactly my thoughts. The Europeans need to realize that the world doesn't need their patronizing approaches to other cultures.

I just can't believe how big an issue people have made of this.

Magnus, I will most certainly concur that this nonsense is getting out of control. "PETA is miffed at Obama"?
I am miffed at PETA. This is ridiculous:

Feel free to comment. I would love to see you rant on this at length. PETA's reaction certainly gives a new, extreme meaning to the term sanctimonious!
