“PETA operates by getting publicity any way they can,” said John White, an NAACP spokesman. “They're comparing chickens to black people?” Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project with the Southern Poverty Law Center, in Montgomery, Ala., called the exhibit “disgusting.” “Black people in America have had quite enough of being compared to animals without PETA joining in,” he said. PETA officials apologized earlier this year for a campaign that compared the suffering of Jews during the Holocaust with that of factory animals.Nothing funny about the Klu Klux Klan PETA's own support groups have problems with this latest animal extremist assault. The Superbowl masturbation-with-food video was bad enough, but even Eccentric Vegan displayed more common sense, and more sensitivity, when it came to use of Klan imagery.
"This is not “unfortunate moments in human history” as some anti-PETA spokepeople call the KKK, this is real life, current racism, hate, murder. No one should dress as a Klansman, not even as part of a protest. It’s too confusing, it’s too provocative, it’s too racist. It’s not funny, it’s not safe, it’s not OK."What would Al Sharpton say ? I have to wonder what New York's Rev. Al Sharpton would have to say at this point. PETA successfully recruited Sharpton, who made a video urging black people to boycott Kentucky Fried Chicken. . .even though Sharpton has no problem with eating fried chicken at all. Is Rev. Sharpton happy to see hoods and robes on 7th Avenue? I'm just saying. . . What would President Obama say ?
How about our president, whose intricate and thoughtful "race speech" included . . .
". . .for all those who scratched and clawed their way to get a piece of the American Dream, there were many who didn't make it - those who were ultimately defeated, in one way or another, by discrimination. . . .For the men and women of Reverend Wright's generation, the memories of humiliation and doubt and fear have not gone away; nor has the anger and the bitterness of those years."
What would President Obama say about animal extremist whackjobs, dressed as Klu Klux Klan members, wandering the streets of New York?
I'm thinking President Obama will have a problem with it, too.There are lots of good reasons to despise PETA's hate-filled Ku Klux Klan campaign. Really, a lot of them. Keep in mind that PETA serves as the advance guard, the shock troops, in the extremist war against pet owners. These pathetic people draped in sheets are expendable. They're cannon fodder. PETA only wants to get the [your choice: racist/intolerant/bigoted/animal rights] ball rolling. Plant the seed. Start the conversation. This won't end with Westminster. So write Barack a letter. Ask him what he thinks of a group that puts on KKK robes and tries to draw a parallel between a dog show and a racist secret society that brought violence, death and destruction to untold numbers of people in the past. . .and continues to do so today. Cause I don't think President Obama will like it. Not at all.
