but I have long looked on it with disdain. For sheer profit motives, animals
in factory farms and most other farms are healthier, better-fed, and better
treated than they would be in the wild, and when their time comes to become
our meals are killed more humanely than they would be by predators. In
defense of the carnivores on the Atkins diet here in protein-obsessed America,
unlike the PETA people they don't harm defenseless plants. As for the tie-in
between the PETA myths and the Holocaust myth, I am reminded of a sick Jewish
fantasy film called <Soylent Green>, in which they speculate on what the
goyim would do to them when they found out how useless and parasitic they
were. Never fear, oh Chosen Ones, we're sure you'd leave a bad taste in our
CAMPAIGN TYING HOLOCAUST TO ANIMAL RIGHTS DRAWS FIRE
San Diego--An animal rights campaign comparing the suffering of livestock to
that of Holocaust victims is drawing sharp criticism from a Jewish group for
"trivializing" the mass murder of Jews.
"The Holocaust on Your Plate" campaign by People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals debuted in California and will make a national tour.
The display is a set of eight six by ten foot panels showing photographs of
Holocaust victims--emaciated men, crowds of people being forced onto trains,
children behind barbed wire, heaps of human bodies--set next to similar
images of cattle, pigs and chickens.
The Anti-Defamation League denounced the project as "outrageous, offensive
and taking chutzpah to new heights."
PETA member Matt Prescott, creator of the campaign, said he is Jewish and
his family lost several members in Nazi concentration camps. He said the
campaign was funded by a Jewish philanthropist.
"The fact is all animals feel pain, fear and loneliness," he said Friday.
"We're asking people to recognize that what Jews and others went through
in the Holocaust is what animals go through every day in factory farms."
