PETA Spews More Bullshit
"It doesn't matter if you're a human, a chicken, a pig, a turkey, a cow, all animals suffer the same," said Matt Prescott, PETA's youth outreach co-ordinator. "All animals feel pain and hunger and loneliness and fear. Every time you sit down to eat -- if you eat meat -- you're supporting a holocaust of the animals."
PETA is at it again with it's publicity stunts. PETA is running an advertising campaign that likens eating chicken to the slaughter of Jews in Nazi death camps. A bit of a stretch in my opinion.
Sure, it's fine to have a position against eating meat or on the treatment of farm animals but to equate it to the worst human tragedy in history is a cheap trick.
"The effort by PETA to compare the deliberate systematic murder of millions of Jews to the issue of animal rights is abhorrent," said Abraham H. Foxman, a Holocaust survivor and national director of the Anti-Defamation League in a prepared statement. "Rather than deepen our revulsion against what the Nazis did to the Jews, the project will undermine the struggle to understand the Holocaust and to find ways to make sure such catastrophes never happen again."
I'm hungry. I think I'll go make myself a chicken sandwich right now...
