We know PETA has an agenda it strongly pursues related to animals (you can read more about the organization on your own). Normally, I would not waste a lot of time talking about much that PETA does … until now. But, what the they did recently in New York was appalling. PETA people wore Ku Klux Klan robes to protest a dog show in New York because their feeling is that dog shows (like the one in New York) advances the theory of the master race (except with dogs in this case). KKK is about the master race (related to white people). I see what they’re trying to say, but this is overstepping the bounds of decency and denigrating the status of people of color (to that of dogs)who have been murdered, terrorized and beaten for generations by the Klan. It was a disgusting display and it was even worse to look at the stupid smiles on the faces of these idiots mocking the atrocities committed by the Klan, against men and women, and comparing it to dog shows. It was disgusting an inappropriate (PETA was trying to make a comparison between the Klan and the American Kennel Club … how much of a stretch is that?).
Here is an Associated Press quote from a PETA spokesperson:
“Obviously it’s an uncomfortable comparison,” PETA spokesman Michael McGraw said.
Obviously, this was a little more than just an “uncomfortable comparison” for a lot of people who are justifiably disgusted and angry. It may be little more than a pathetic attention-grabbing publicity stunt, on the part of McGraw and his organization, but it was offensive and hurtful to a lot of people. It did little more than trivialize the cause of his organization and make a mockery of the atrocities (murder, rapes, domestic terrorism, corruption and more) committed by the Klan and (to a lesser extent) the agenda of PETA.
