PETA: “Chickens are human too”

PETA is getting ready to launch its “Holocaust on a plate” campaign which compares the killing of chickens for food to the massacre of 6 million Jews during World War II.

Reuters reports:
The posters, due to be displayed in Stuttgart from Thursday and in 11 European cities at later dates, show pictures of battery hens packed into cages next to historic pictures of emaciated Jewish inmates in Nazi concentration camp bunk beds.

Reuters put this story under its “Oddly Enough” category and titled it German Jews Attack Vegetarian Ad Campaign. The title implies that Reuters thinks it is odd for German Jews to be offended at the ad campaign rather than it being odd PETA would compare chickens to human suffering.

In reality, PETA thinks animals are more important than humans. On February 3, 2003, PETA co-founder Ingrid Newkirk wrote a letter to Yasir Arafat asking him to not to harm animals in suicide bombing attacks. She has absolutely no concern about the children the terrorists are killing as long as they don’t hurt donkeys.

You may think the title of this post is a joke. It isn’t. PETA is calling for an amendment to the United States Constitution that says:

all mammals, birds, and fish will, henceforth, be defined as “persons” in the eyes of the law

Makes me hungry for some chicken.
