“Woke” leftists in John Fetterman’s state have everyone spitting mad after trying to kill one tradition

The Left are notorious killjoys.

They want to turn everything into a political battle.

And “woke” leftists in John Fetterman’s state want to kill one tradition.

People who are sick of the cold are eagerly anticipating spring, which is right around the corner.

In keeping with tradition, the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil will prognosticate how many more weeks of winter the people of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania must endure.

Punxsutawney Phil was the inspiration for the classic comedy Groundhog Day, but some radical leftists are anxious to see his big day scrapped.

PETA wrote a letter to officials in Punxsutawney calling for the tradition to be canceled because Phil is being exploited.

PETA wrote in a statement, “The group sent a letter this morning to The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club’s president, Tom Dunkel, offering to send a giant gold coin to replace Punxsutawney Phil—whose weather predictions are no more reliable than a coin toss—on the condition that Phil finally be allowed to live out his days at a reputable sanctuary. PETA notes that groundhogs are naturally shy animals who enjoy burrowing, exploring, and hibernating—which are impossible in the small enclosure Phil is kept in year-round at the local library.”

So PETA wants Punxsutawney Phil to be replaced by a gold coin?

Perhaps Groundhog Day should be blacklisted as well.

The statement continued, “PETA suggests coining a new name for the holiday, such as ‘Weather There’ll Be More Winter Day,’ to demonstrate respect for Phil and set an example for how best to chuck this tired tradition. The group’s previous offers to provide a willing human replacement for Phil, who would live in his small enclosure and take his place making unscientific weather predictions, or to plant a persimmon tree, whose seeds are believed by some farmers to indicate the weather ahead, still stand.”

PETA wants to make very clear that groundhogs cannot predict the weather.

PETA president and co-founder Ingrid Newkirk said, “Groundhogs can’t make heads or tails of the weather forecast and shouldn’t be jostled around by large members of a different species and thrust in front of noisy crowds for a photo op…PETA is urging The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club to send Phil to a reputable sanctuary that will give him the care he needs and not to treat him as a wildlife prop.”

Nevertheless, Punxsutawney Phil remains, so PETA will have to take up another cause.
