What’s More Loathsome than the KKK? The P-E-T-A.

ku-klux-klan-salute.jpgI appreciate PETA’s no-fur message, but I’ll tell you what: They are a vile, odious little organization that is doing far more harm to their mission than they are doing good. Seriously.

“Is this really the KKK?” somebody asked the woman in the white robe and the pointy hat.
Crowds gawked at a table set up outside Madison Square Garden on Monday afternoon, where People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals was protesting the start of the Westminster Kennel Club show. PETA contends that the American Kennel Club promotes pure-breeding of dogs that is harmful to their health.
“Welcome AKC Members,” read a banner hanging from the table — with AKC crossed out and KKK written above it. Two PETA protesters dressed as Ku Klux Klan members, while other volunteers handed out brochures that read: “The KKK and the AKC: BFF?”
“Obviously it’s an uncomfortable comparison,” PETA spokesman Michael McGraw said. But the AKC is trying to create a “master race,” he added. “It’s a very apt comparison.”

I think this man had the appropriate response: “Earlier, a man strode away yelling, “That’s disgusting! I’m going to buy more fur!”

That’s about right. And if were going to extend the offensive, tacky analogy, I can think of a few “activists” who deserve a lynching.

So does anybody know where I can get a good fur coat? Valentine's Day is approaching.

PETA makes me want to eat more meat.

I see a bunch of PETA members who want to make the No-Fly list, yes I do!!!! Nor will I cry when they die of cancer because the drugs that could help them were tested on animals. Oh wait, they might put their money where their mouths are, but their mouths shut of pretty damn fast when their lives are on the line. A child is a dog is a dolphin is a flea my ASS.

PETA also is aiming to rename fish as "Sea Kitties". I'm going to be looking at my next 30+ pound cod in a new light.

I used to live down in Norfolk when I was stationed in the military down there. I don't mean to sound sexist, but the women they would have handing out literature and doing protests.. well it was obvious they were chosen for their bodies and not their ability to hold a complete thought. As a guy that likes boobies as much as the next, it shocks me that these people don't see the irony in exploiting women to stop the exploitation of animals. And as for the whole "master race" thing, notice how PETA are made up of folks that have never needed a medical treatment that was the result of animal testing. They don't have people with diabetes, spina bifida, etc. They have this high and mighty notion of what a human being should be and act and anyone that dares to think differently needs to be targeted. Considering how much money these idiots funnel to dangerous organizations like ELF and ALF, why the hell are any of them allowed to fly? Try sending cash to Hamas and see how often you can get on a plane.

Wow, I don't know what's worse, likening the AKC to the KKK, or this:

I am proud to be a vegetarian. I love my fur and leather-free home. But I hate that PETA has risen to fame to be the unofficial spokesperson behind animal rights. They have been exploiting women's bodies for years in their no fur campaign, with naked women posed in submissive positions, somehow appealing to the innate masculinity (?!?!) in a vegetarian lifestyle. And now, this?! Seriously, PETA, a lot of vegetarians are anti-racist, feminist activists who care as much, if not more, about social justice than animal rights. They are alienating the veggies who put human rights before animal rights. Arghhhhhh.

Its a shame they are idiots because their message is right here. Unfortunately kennel clubs and "pure bred culture" have ruined overall dog health. But still they take away from the credibility of their cause.

Bill, I saw that "sea kitten" campaign, and was highly amused by it. So does that mean cats are now "land fish," and we can eat them?

PETA thinks they are cleaver when they stage these sorts of protests but it's appalling. The horrible, violent and often deadly crimes the KKK have committed against the African American community are far worse than any thing these dog breeders have done. There is no comparison. This might even be crazier than PETAs suggestion that Ben and Jerry's make ice cream from breast milk. PETA has no trouble demeaning people in their lame attempts at promoting animal rights.

And now, I think I'll go eat a steak.

Seriously? I don't think this is that big of a deal. Yeah, it's an extreme comparison, and yeah, dressing up like members of the KKK is stupid, even to prove a point. That said, they are just making a point. How is that POSSIBLY worse than lynching minorities or blowing up churches and killing children?? They didn't even do anything violent, they just handed out pamphlets. And the way they breed those dogs IS cruel; the in-breeding leads to major health defects. So, really, you guys come off as bigger dicks than they do.

@diablo,
actually, the president of peta IS an insulant dependent diabetic.

wearing the robes of the KKK is representing acts of violence. it goes way beyond making a point, especially when peta members are often such huge hypocrites.
and while i agree about heath defects proliferating in animals bred to keep the breed pure, what the animal mill people do is much, much worse.
so, audio, i guess your dick is bigger than mine.
