I have a weakness for this stupid movie. It's a dystopian sci-fi remake of friggin' *Casablanca* for chrissake

Turns out Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson have something in common besides a fondness for Barb Wire, pink underpants, and relentless attention-seeking: They both think a vegetarian diet is just peachy, especially if you can impose it on people who have absolutely no say in the matter, i.e., prisoners at the Maricopa County Jail.

And that’s why Joe Freaking Arpaio joined Anderson and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals for a big press conference Wednesday, touting the wholesomeness and general goodness of the jail’s meat-free meals. We actually don’t have a problem with the vegetarianism part of it, really. But you’d think maybe someone at PETA would have given just a little bit of thought before partnering with a guy whose incarceration philosophy is built on treating prisoners as inhumanly as possible within the bounds of the Eighth Amendment — and frequently beyond them. Not that there’s necessarily a conflict of values; PETA is only concerned with caged animals that aren’t human.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is certainly proud of its achievements in cutting out meat from prisoner meals — and considering that Arpaio used to brag about serving prisoners greenish bologna, maybe this is a step up. Supposedly, the meatless meals save taxpayers some $200,000 a year, according to a MCSO press release. Also, too, there are a whole bunch of other benefits: “reduced electricity costs, not having to tailor a variety of meals to suit different religious convictions and other special requests, and providing healthier meals that don’t spoil as quickly as animal products.”

Oh, and to save money and improve inmate health, Dear Sheriff Joe also eliminated coffee and condiments. Guy’s a freakin’ saint, isn’t he? Good thing he’s saving a few bucks on food, since Maricopa County taxpayers are still on the hook for some $21 million in costs needed to comply with a court order requiring MCSO to change policies and procedures that constituted racial profiling, plus a $3.75 million settlement for Arpaio’s revenge arrests of a couple of journalists he didn’t like. Still, big savings on food!

PETA Senior Vice President Dan “My Last Name Isn’t A Typo” Mathews is over the moon at the opportunity to partner with the punishment-happy sadist, too! He told Think Progress that the prospect of “8,300 people a day not eating meat” was “a wonderful example for other jails around the country that could have health impacts on the inmates as well as saving taxes” — although Matthews didn’t have any opinion of Arpaio’s fondness for keeping prisoners in tents where summer temperatures regularly top 110 degrees. Look, it’s not like Arpaio is making dogs or cats endure those conditions, so who cares? Besides, just think of all the great opportunities for moral reform! Matthews simply oozed enthusiasm, praising Arpaio for devising “an efficient wonderful program” because and that “prisoners are the ideal crowds to learn about a less violent diet and a more healthful diet.”

And if they don’t treat the American Flag with respect, they’ll get bread and water, too! Talk about healthy and cruelty-free — for animals, at least.

Mathews was even thrilled by the state of the fresh produce he saw on a visit to the jail: “They have food that’s unpeeled so if you don’t want to eat it now, you can eat it later.” We bet he’s even excited by the extra mineral content provided by not washing the vegetables, either:

During a 2013 visit of the food factory after the meals switched over to an all-vegetarian diet, a Fox News affiliate reporter commented that the carrots in the stew were brown and that the soy looked like “wood chips.” Arpaio responded, “Oh, that’s probably just dirt. Don’t worry about that.”

And those lucky duckies at the jail even get to learn important lessons about responsibility — the county bills them for their meals — and about living simply: they only get two meals a day. Which inmates describe as “slop.”

For her part, Anderson focused on the spiritual nourishment of Joe Arpaio’s approach to sadism as moral reform:

I believe people can be rehabilitated from the inside out. Jails are full of people wanting to change, to make amends, to learn healthier habits and understand compassion and empathy.

You know, like how Joe Arpaio was found in a 2008 court ruling to have compassionately and empathetically been indifferent to whether prisoners received prescription medications, leading to at least one death. But it was only a diabetic who died from not getting insulin, and isn’t that derived from animal cruelty anyway? Or maybe she meant the compassionate and empathetic overcrowding; at one jail, “as many as 35 inmates can be crammed into one cell — without beds — for as long as 72 hours.”

So maybe Arpaio doesn’t take good care of prisoners. But who cares? They’re merely humans, and that’s the one creature PETA doesn’t give a single organic free range shit about.

    Ah, PETA – where any publicity is good publicity. Not to mention the kind of “ebil liberals” that Sheriff Joe would normally give a ride out of the county (not free, of course).

    Tell me more about why PETA sucks, ThinkProgress linky:

    Anderson’s appearance with Arpaio is the latest in a string of tactics by PETA that seem inconsistent with their humanitarian values. Last year, the organization offered to pay one month’s water bill for Detroit, Michigan residents, who had their water shut off because of outstanding payments. PETA stipulated that residents had to agree to go vegan for one month. But for Detroit residents who live in food deserts, where it’s difficult to find fresh fruits and vegetables, going vegan was described as tone deaf. The group has used other kinds of gimmicks to promote a vegan lifestyle, often using graphic images or using naked women covered in “blood” and trapped in cages for PETA promotional materials.

    • Lascauxcaveman

    Jesus fucking Christ:

    In an email to ThinkProgress, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk wrote:

    That’s right, slam PETA for praising something good that saves animals’ lives and is healthier for those incarcerated than the “mystery meat” usually served jail inmates. Under your rules, only pure people and pure institutions can be praised for anything, meaning there will be no news as even saints, now long dead, had flies on them. Under those rules, no one who works to stop any abuse to man or beast dare praise a living soul or agency for any step forward, no matter how large or small. That isn’t thinking progress, it’s negative thinking that provides no incentive for moral growth. A more helpful mindset would mean you can join in the celebration when our flawed society inches forward in any regard, whether human rights, animal rights, environmentalism, health, you name it.

    Really? You want to blame ThinkProgress for pointing out the fact that you have aligned yourselves with a psycho sheriff?

  • whatwhomever

    Sorry PETA, the fact that a sadist thinks a vegetarian diet is good for the people the sadist likes being sadistic to means that a vegetarian diet is sadistic.

  • Villago Delenda Est

    PETA is, I’m afraid, made up of some seriously dumbass people. Their heart is usually in the right place, but damn, they go out of their way to make it difficult, if not impossible, to support them.

    • Zippy

      considering the ugly dark side of the way they treat animals, I have zero respect for them. They’re so opposed to pet ownership that they’d rather euthanize thousands of strays rather than make even the tiniest effort to adopt them out.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        That is DEFINITELY an example of where their zeal overcomes any compassion or common sense. They’re so often as looney as the teahadists.

        • Zippy

          Indeed- they’re the classic example of a left wing wingnut. Ruining a $5000 fur coat with paint won’t bring those animals back to life- breaking into a research lab and “liberating” the test animals just means that those critters will starve to death or be turned into road kill once released.

          • Lizzietish81

            Plus lead to epidemics of rage.

          • willi0000000

            also, too . . . a lot of those lab animals have been bred to have almost no immune system or delivered by caesarian into a sterile environment over so many generations that they have no inherited immunities . . . just breathing unsterilized air will kill them in a matter of days, if not hours . . . or those that require dietary supplements just to stay alive even on healthy food.

            then there’s the loss of research material and data . . . this can result in some pretty bad consequences . . . like the loss of an advanced degree in fields like genetics, cancer research, immunology, … (the list is long) . . . or the delay, or loss, of a valuable drug or other therapy . . . or just the grant money running out because there isn’t enough to start from scratch.

            i’d love to see complete, accurate computer modeling replace lab animals, but it ain’t gonna happen any time soon . . . even results that look wonderful in a petri dish don’t often work in the whole animal or have disastrous side effects.

            and then there’s PETA’s penchant for pushing for animal protection laws exceeding the protections offered by laws written to protect children (and adults) before strengthening those people laws.

          • Sebastian Melmoth

            A $5,000.oo fur coat? I have a PETA-decorated Barguzinsky sable coat that Mary Tyler Moore gave to PETA. Her husband had paid Arnold Scassi $114,000.oo for it. Imagine what that amount of money — or even half of it — from the resale of the coat could have done to help people and animals in need. I think the PE in PETA stands for publicity enraptured.

          • Blank Ron

            And the irony is that anyone who can afford to buy fur is going to go right out and buy another coat. Way to think things through, PETA moonbats.

          • mtn_philosoph

            PETA is in the left wing? I always thought that they were in the loony wing. (Where degree of contact with consensus reality is the more important variable.)

            If they are left wingers then they are probably followers of Barks-Felineism.

          Plus it was just his diet, and was influencied by a philosophy that he adhered to early on in his life (not nazism BTW).

  • Lucy_P

    PETA and Pamela Anderson are simply commending the good decision to serve inmates healthy, nutritious vegan meals—not endorsing every policy at the prison. Serving vegan meals is a kindness to animals as well as to prisoners. Eating vegan foods can reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, cancer, diabetes, and a host of other illnesses, while increasing intake of important nutrients, not to mention it will save countless animals who have committed no crime from horrific abuse followed by the death penalty.

    • jmk

      That’s super special of PETA and Pam…but to call this a “good decision” or “a kindness” is ridiculous. Unless and until those prisoners CONSENT to becoming vegan, and CHOOSE that path themselves, this is little more than punitive bullshit…and I say that as the mother of an enthusiastic vegan who knows better – and has more respect for ALL his fellow creatures, INCLUDING jailed humans – than to impose his own choices on anyone against their will.

      I would suggest to all concerned that they reread Kant’s On Moral Reasoning, this time paying special attention to the bits about respect and autonomy being at the heart of morality.

    Regardless of how you feel about Joe Arpaio, serving vegan food to inmates is a great idea. Animals raised for food are kept in crowded, filthy conditions and are hung upside down by one leg, dismembered, and skinned, often while fully conscious. Jail administrators should encourage inmates to discard their taste for violence.

    can anyone guess the first meal any of these prisoners eat when they get out? if you guessed STEAK, you’re a winner! tyranny is evil, no matter who the tyrant is. these people, and they are people, didn’t choose this. if they did, more power to them. but if not….it is just one more way of punishing them.

    No matter how one feels about Sheriff Arpaio, one has to
    agree that serving healthy, humane vegan meals is a good idea. It reduces the
    violence and bloodshed in the world, helps combat climate change, and promotes
    good health, which can help save money on healthcare. I’m all for vegan prison
    food–and vegan meals everywhere else, too. Good for Pam Anderson for helping
    PETA to promote this healthy and kind concept.

    There’s nothing wrong with promoting healthy, cost-effective and nonviolent food for prison inmates. In fact, we should be encouraging it!
