PETA or Pita?

In a recent ad campaign––called "Holocaust on Your Plate"––the world's preeminent bastion of nutjobbery, PETA, has used graphic pictures to compare eating meat with the worst depredations against the Jews during the second World War.





Try as they might to hide behind the mask of animal rights, we know the darker message PETA is trying to send:
Jews are delicious!

Wow. Normally when someone uses "PETA" and "nutjobbery" in the same sentence I question their bias, but this ad campaign has really gone WAAAY overboard. Not only that, it is a disgrace to Holocaust survivors, IMO. That's the great thing about free speech... we all have the right to say really stupid things.

Well, there's never any need to question MY bias; I try to keep it pretty blatant. :)

(BTW, while I have nothing against conservation and vegetarianism, PETA's methods sometimes stray into the realm of crime, such as paying for people like Rodney Coronado––and others within groups like the ALF and ELF––to commit arson and similar crimes.)

Wow! Way to go PETA! How can you even begin to compare human genocide to eating beef, pork, or chicken?

A lot of that campaigning was unfair. Comparing Jewish victims with pigs--the very symbol of "unclean" animals themselves! Tsk, tsk.
