A Word With Jenna Bush

Written by PETA | July 9, 2007

It’s no secret that first daughter Jenna Bush is a bit of a wild child and as you know, we here at PETA can get as wild as anyone. But when the Bush twin switched from MGD and bong hits to foie gras, Ingrid Newkirk pulled out her pen and let Dubya’s rebellious daughter know what’s up.

You can read Ingrid’s letter here.

    Why haven’t the Bush girls served their country in the military? A 3year4year enlistment wouldn’t do them harm. Heck they’d get special treatment anyway!

  • jenna says:

  • Charley says:

  • Patty DeFahgwa says:

    In Acts 1013 God said He made all unclean things clean so I can choose to eat what I wish to eat as you choose not to eat the things you have choose not to eat.

  • Linda says:

    First of all she is not one with the Lord and either is her horrible family. She and her family are after one thing POWERPOWER and more POWER to do whar ever they want. Forget poor her. POOR POOR us and our whle family.

  • Russell says:

    Ana Ingrid gives those people direct access to her bc it is important to educate these people. We are already animal rights activists and have a forum in which to express our thoughts. Relax we are heard and validated frequently….

  • Bonnie says:

    Ignorance is an explanation not an excuse. Now that Jenna Bush has been made aware of the sadistic cruelty that goes into making foie gras she must stop eating it. As the daughter of the President she is a role model like it or not. She is not an average citizen living her life anonomously. It is incumbent upon her to set an example a far better one than she has set up to this point. People in positions of power and influence like the Bush family however undeserving and despicable they are should at least demonstrate an iota of moral fiber. As if.

  • mindy says:

    She was raised by a bunch of rednecks. what would we expect that she would eat? Her family hunts also. If they didnt have any money they would be eating deerrabbits etc.

  • Tika Bordelon says:

    ick. that whole family makes me ill. i am throwing the largest party when that entire clan gets assassinated… the sooner the better! please! just kill themall. the world will thank you.

  • THERESA SISKIND says:

    NOT SURPRISED IN THE LEAST! JUST LOOK AT THE BUSH ADMINISTRATIONS POLICIES ON THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT AND SELLING OFF PARTS OF OUR NATIONAL PARKS FOR THE OIL AND LOGGING INDUSTRIES…

  • Ash says:

    I agree with you Aimee on both points. Putting her behaviours inline with what her father has done and does is just pathetic. She is a seperate entity and I’m sure that most of you who have posted something along the lines of “like father like daughter” are shining examples of how different children and their parents can be. Personally I had no idea what foie grass was or how it came about. When I clicked the link above that led to information it said also that Roger Moore had stopped the practice when he found out about the process of production and the conditions it entails. I would personally prefer to give Ms Bush the benefit of the doubt and assume she knew no better. That or go along with what you all say and concede she is obviously the devil in carnate’s devil spawn bent on world domination through the torture and the enjoyment of such of innocent animals. sounds riddiculous now that you think about it doesn’t it?

  • Katrina says:

    If you want to condemn someone condemn France! French people are the ones who invented it obviously and they’re the ones who see nothing wrong with eating it. …Oh and they’re the ones who opposed the war. Take note Fritz and Marianna. Are they still humane? Could everyone please take a deep breath and stop with the hateful offensive language for a few minutes? That would be great. Thanks.

  • Aimee says:

    Sumatrasue…you are a disgrace…how DARE you judge someone by their parents. Jenna does what any other typical teenyoung adult does shes in the public eye so everyone sees it. i’ve done some things im not proud of either so im a disgrace too? please. and as far as her eating foie gras that is disgusting…and cruel.

  • Seuuu says:

    She is a chip off the “compassionate” old block. Tell her Ingrid!

  • Patrick says:

    While I’d love to see Ingrid’s letter have an effect we are talking about Jenna Bush here. Can you imagine anyone from that family having even a nodding acquaintance with the concept of compassion human decency or mercy? I hope Jenna proves me wrong.

  • Mira says:

    It isn’t a surprise to me. You can see Jenna doing here a Illuminati Freemason handsignoften what also Daddy Bush does. They are Evil and Satanicthey don’t care of animal suffering nor human suffering and will never change. Bush family are the biggest war criminals in history of a mankindas Grandpa BushPrescott Bush funded Hitlerthen Bush senior had fun at the GulfVietnam ect and now sonny Bush is more evil than any of these previous put to together!!! WAKE UP IT’S ALREADY WW3 GOING ON! We must save the natureit’s animals and people while we have this chance!

  • Healthy Man says:

    Jenna Bush is a despicable person. I suppose it’s not that surprising that she chose that path yet she can stop now and begin living a healthier and more enjoyable life today by becoming vegan or vegetarian. That’s true even if she is a Bush progeny.

  • Janette says:

    I agree with the letter that was sent to Jenna Bush. As a teacher I realize that some of our teenagers are sometimes uninformed and uneducated and will at times do things because they don’t know better. I truly hope that she really did not know where her food came from!

  • Tina says:

    I did not find the letter rude at all. And I feelit is just like the Bushies to not care about other living things. They certainly don’t care about other humans. What makes anyone think that it would be any different with animals.

  • Paul Thandi says:

    She looks like she’s force fed!!!! Just another idiot in the Bush family. Shame on you who voted for him!!!

  • Katrina says:

    Most of these comments are DISGUSTING! Who among you has actually met Jenna? She’s a good person even though you all are obviously still bitter that her father is still President. Have you all spent time educating the impoverished in Latin America? No? Well Jenna has. And no one forced her to! So lay off the leftwing rabid language okay? I’m a moderate person and am so tired of all the mudslinging. It’s comments like these that make people skeptical of what PETA stands for and that’s quite tragic! If you’re trying to drive away mainstream America you all are doing a fabulous job. And yes I’m telling you this as a fellow animal rights activist and proud vegetarian too. Seriously tone down the angry rhetoric!

  • Chris says:

    Anyone who eats foie gras is heartless especially after learning how it is made. If they still continue to eat it after learning about the horrors conducted on innocent FEELING creatures then they should have a metal tube shoved down their throats and food pumped into their guts to see what it feels like.

  • TERRY says:

    I TO WOULD NEVER EAT WHAT WOULD CAUSE GREAT HARM OR DEATH TO A INNOCENT ANIMAL. I ALSO THOUGHT THAT THE LETTER THAT SHE WROTE TO JENNA WAS A VERY GOOD AND THOUHTFUL ONE AND I SAW NOTHING WRONG WITH HER ASKING JENNA TO NOT EAT THAT ANYMORE… I TO CAME FROM A WHOLE HOUSE OF MEAT EATERS AND THAT REQUEST IS RESEASONABLE FOR THE PLAN SIMPLE FACT THAT WETHER WE ADMIT IT OR NOT ALOT MORE PEOPLE WILL BE WATCHING HER THAN US AND WHAT A WAY TO GET A MESSAGE ACROSS. KELLY AND THE OTHERS I THINK THAT YOU ALL ARE OUT OF LINE BY SAYING THAT SHE IS CRUEL LIKE HER FATHER WHICH IN RETURN I THINK THAT YOU ARE DEAD WRONG. I SERVED FOUR TOURS IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN AND I WOULD GO BACK AGAIN FOR I KNOW FIRST HAND WHAT IS GOING ON THERE AND THE PRESIDENT IS DOING THE DIRTY WORK THAT THE OTHERS WOULDNT FINISH AND FOR ONCE WE HAVE SOMEONE THAT DOESNT GO BACK AND FORTH ON HIS DECSIONS LIKE SOMEOTHERS. LISTEN DONT GET WRONG I DONT AGREE WITH EVERYTHING THAT HE DOES BUT HE CANT PLEASE EVERYONE ALL THE TIME AND PROTECTING US IN THIS COUNTRY IS HIS TOP PRIORTY.ALSO YOU GUYS BACK HOME ONLY GO BY WHAT YOU HEAR OR READ… I SAW IT FIRST HAND…

  • Susan says:

    I thought Ingrid’s letter was calm and to the point certainly not “too much” as suggested in a comment. I do however get my hackles up when I read that we soldiers in the field can’t get a word from Ingrid because she’s “too busy”. Without us there would be no Peta so I think what Peta members think and want to say needs to be acknowledged regularly. You never know where the next great idea may come from Ingrid. And you never know who may have thousands of potential Peta supporters behind them also. Be nice to your field workers! I think we women need to be cognizant of the historical significance of the “old boy’s network” and apply that strategy to all we do and lead.

  • Lucy says:

    Barbaric much like her father. They are both a disgrace.

  • Sumatrasue says:

    If Kharma is true which I believe it is Jennas Liver will grow in a painful way huge too and shall be served on a plate in her next life.

  • Nancy says:

    All younger people need to know what they are eating. No one tells them and they don’t ask. Most of them don’t care anyway they think they know it all.. Force feeding Anything shouldn’t be allowed and we should be outraged as heck for abusing animals in lots of ways fighting killing in horrible ways just for being there burning stabbing selling for food or experiments or for bait for the fighting dogs and cockfighting all this need to be stopped Now! I do believe PETA is trying to help…but we need to get on our Congress also.

  • Hedy Samuels says:

    An apple doesn’t fall far from a tree!

  • Irka says:

    I have seen some of Ingrid’s letters and feel that the attack doesn’t warrant her response. However I think she is 100 correct in this case the rich and decadent should be made aware of the suffering that went into each mouthful. I am glad that due to her family’s legacy she is no role model for any intelligent person we should start worrying about the notsobright people that would like to emulate her.

  • Marianna DiGioia says:

    I always did say that Foie Gras is the food of the uncivilized. War mongers would definitely be the uncivilized! Veganism. The diet of the humane.

  • Anonymous says:

    So UNEDUCATED just like the dubya. Watch out for the tippling addiction. Not a lady by any real definition. Did not inherit Laura’s side as far as her public persona goes.

  • Tanna says:

    okay i just turned 18 years old have been a vegetarian for almost 3 years and although I do not agree with foie gras I also do not think it is appropriate to send a letter to Jenna Bush promising to never eat it again. I live in a house full of meat eaters so maybe it is easier for me to realize that just because I make a specific life choice does not mean anyone else has to choose or agree with it. I have always been a little skeptical of PETA i would hate to think that all of you are animal rights activist on a power trip. Tanna

  • kris shulfer says:

    ya jenna umm..eating a liver where ducksgeese are force fed with a tube to make this thing with a fancy name foie gras which should really be called force fed duckgeese liver now would you eat it?? and i still do not understand why it is considered a delicacy…

  • Rebecca Lieder says:

    Jenna Bush eats children and puppies. Why wouldn’t the bch eat foi gras?

  • Gerry Ardigliano says:

    Has anyone noticed the direct pipeline offered by Ingrid to Jenna Bush? For years I have been asking peta staffers by phone if Ms. Newkirk could be accessible to activists a mere one day per month I was told it was impossible. When I modified my request to leave her voicemail messeges one day per month the answer remained the same “she’s too busy”. Can anyone explain why people like myself who care about AR’s just as much as peta constantly get rejected if we want to convey something important but Jenna gets the whiteglove treatment?

  • Ana says:

    Like father like daughter mean cruel and dumb. Maybe she could grow a heart and actually improve on her genes. Compassion towards animals works!

  • kelly says:

    Jenna has some weight issues Foie gras is NOT helping that!

  • Kelley says:

    If Jenna REALLY wanted to totally rebel and freak out her family she would become a peace loving hippy veggie. That would be the ultimate most awful thing she could do to make her parents miserable worked for me!!! HA HA!!

  • Susannah says:

    Good job Ingrid! I sincerely hope Ms. Bush will take the message and run with it. Wouldn’t it be great if she could become an advocate AGAINST foie gras?

  • woody woodpecker says:

    you can recognize a tree from its fruit!

  • Fritz says:

    She probably gets her affinity for violence from her father.

  • elmer says:

    wat a spoiled brat…
