PETA again Reveals They are Rude and Crude Dr. Michael L. Ford 12 August 2005 Maybe some of you heard some weeks ago that PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals were killing animals entrusted to their care. It was just one in a long series of revelations that has continued to show how crass and hypocritical these people are. Just as you think there is nothing new they can do something comes along that prompted one observer to remark the folks at PETA “are not the crispiest potato chips in the bag.” They recently held an animal-rights protest in New Haven, Connecticut which backfired…let me tell you why. A two-hour animal rights demonstration on the Green Monday sparked outrage instead of sympathy from the public. "This is the most racist thing I’ve ever seen on the Green. How dare you," roared one observer. PETA demonstrators posted giant photographs of people, mostly black Americans, being tortured, sold and killed, next to photographs of animals, including cattle and sheep, being tortured, sold and killed. Evolutionary thinking! What's the big deal, say the veggies, since we don't actually know any African-Americans? Josh Warchol, president of the Southern Connecticut Vegetarian Society, which is aligned with PETA approved of the message. They could not understand how comparing human beings and livestock would be upset anyone. But New Haven black residents were. One man demanded that the NAACP get involved. Five minutes later the president of the State and Greater New Haven chapters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, arrived, surveyed the photos and blasted the organizers. One display showed butchered livestock hung next to the photo of two lynched black men. PETA has used the Jews before as well. The Anti-Defamation League, has publicly condemned PETA’s use of photos comparing human suffering in the Holocaust to animal suffering today. A photo they used showed a concentration camp inmate with a number tattooed across his emaciated chest. It was juxtaposed against a shot of a monkey in a laboratory with a number branded across its chest. Only men have souls. The comparison between men and animals is anti-Bible and sinful.
