wyrd thoughts: my other blog

"The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things...."

News and views about current affairs, religious freedom issues, and the fight against euthanasia. Also the latest about my cats, goats, sheep, geese and chickens, life in Menominee county, and whatever else is on my mind.

PETA compares Holocaust to a steak dinner

The editor of sheep! magazine likes to call the animal rights movement 'the hostility biz'. PETA's latest adventure makes me want to call them a few other things, none of them suitable for mixed company.

They actually compare the ordinary meat-eating that humans (along with animals like wolves and tigers) have been doing since forever to the mass murder of six million Jews and goodness knows how many homosexuals, Gypsies, and handicapped people.

Of course, Hitler, the author of that slaughter, was also concerned over kindness to animals and was a vegetarian. I guess it's only natural that PETA follows in Hitler's footsteps. He is their spiritual leader and role model and you can see it in the way PETA acts.
