By MICHELLE MORGANTE, Associated Press Writer

SAN DIEGO - An animal-rights campaign comparing the suffering of livestock to that of Holocaust victims is drawing sharp criticism from a leading Jewish group for "trivializing" the mass murder of Jews.

"The Holocaust on Your Plate" campaign by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, debuted this week in California and will make a national tour.

The display is a set of eight 6-foot-by-10-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 and PETA's appeal for support from the Jewish community as "outrageous, offensive and taking chutzpah to new heights."

Abraham H. Foxman, a Holocaust survivor and ADL national director, said linking the deliberate, systematic murder of millions of Jews to the issue of animal rights was "abhorrent."

PETA member Matt Prescott, the 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 who wishes to remain anonymous.

He said criticism of the project was expected.

"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."

Seriously, this just shows how out of touch the average PETA activist is from the real world. Great comparison....jerks.

"... Sometimes PETA take things too far :/"

That's an understatement. All they ever do is take things too far. THey can't get anyone to listen to them otherwise, and they aren't actually in it for the cause of animal rights...they are in it for their own self gratification. Does this compliment or replace their strategy of handing kids "Happy MEals" at McDonald's with bloody, dismembered animals?

Adding to what Cwapilot said, when there was the "worlds largest" poultry convention in Atlanta a few years ago, some PETA losers got their dingy paws on a dump truck, filled it with chicken shit, and dumped it on a major Atlanta street.

If you have any questions, just look at their website! They proudly profess all of their antics. One of their more interesting "operations" is their anti-fur campaign in which young women walk around naked with signs.

For doing this, PETA will never have any of my respect.

I respect the right of people to not eat meat. But, their advert with Rudy Guiliani (blaming his prostate CANCER on milk) and then they touch the most sacred of subjects, the holocaust, for their own anti-choice ideas.

So PETA are stupid. So what. The KKK are stupid. If you're bitching about PETA implying the "holocaust" of animals was as bad as the millions of Jews, gypsies and homosexuals murdered, maybe you should be bitching about how the KKK incises hatred towards blacks. Just a suggestion to make you seem less hypocritical.

PETA might be insane, but that doesn't mean anyone who's against cruelty to animals is.

Maybe at one time, PETA had some good ideas. But they've obviously been co-opted and taken over by radicals so extreme that they hav no concept of reality any more. And, since no one will even give them the time of day anymore, they keep going further and further into their radicalism to try and get attention. They do NOTHING to legitimately protect animals that are mistreated, and all they do is hurt legitimate efforts.

This one is an all-time low. The problem with PETA is they REALLY feel that animals are equal in every respect, with human beings. Do animals have some feelings? I imagine some do-my dog certainly does-she goes crazy when I come home from work, she looks very dejeceted when I leave for work. But to compare animals in a farm to the Holocaust? That's demeans those who suffered and died at the hands of the Nazi's, comparing them with animals being harvested to feed people.

It's disgusting, and it's reprehensible. The best think to do is to just laugh at their lunacy, and ignore them as the irrelevant loonies that they are.

One big difference may be that the KKK is a discredited, backwater "organization" comprised of the dregs of society, and denounced by all quarters of society. PETA is embraced by the Hollywood elite and many left wing politicians world wide. Membership in PETA is "trendy" and entitles people in some elitist liberal ciricles to social recognition. This, when, in fact, they should be put on the same list as the KKK.

Also, take a pill...nobody has said anything about those opposed to animal cruelty being insane. They are saying exactly what you said..."PETA are stupid."

PETA has never gotten any respect from me, and this episode just makes me sick. The Holocaust was one of the worst, if not the worst, human rights violations in the history of mankind. Comparing that to chickens, which is a popular food around the world, is wrong. These wacked liberals need to get in touch with reality, and I wouldn't be surprised to see America rise up against these fools.

PETA is doing nothing new that any other activist group hasn't done. Shocking the public, getting noticed and getting people talking, WHCH IS EXACTLY WHAT IS GOIGN ON HERE! So in a way, the campaign has worked cause it was so good it got JCS talking or posting about it (maybe not the positive side of it, but still got him talking) I am a PETA supporter, I may not agree with their tactics or campaign methods but I support there goal/mission and the good work they do.

Regards.

Jcs17,

You carp on with the biggest load of bollocks mate. If you can't see through your fat laden dinner the dreadful and inhumane treatment of our food animals then you are bigger and more disgusting fool than I thought you were before.

Go PETA. I might not necessarily agree with everything they do, but at least they are there protecting animal rights.

If you knew the filth and sub standard hygeine of most slaughterhouses or how they operate with low paid illegal immigrants then you wouldn't be making such a *flaccid* statement.

Instead of take take take, why not look at the world around you and make a change rather than criticise an organisation that has good in it's mantra rather than hate.

Your eating your own shit mate. Read *Fast Food Nation*.

Sorry, Mx, but they're goal is not to protect animals any more. Their goal is to try to make people guilty for doing things like fishing, drinking milk, eating meat, and stuff like that.

If you want to support a group that wants to ban fishing because it doesn't take into consideration the feelings of the fish, well, go right ahead. They're a bunch of lunatics, period.

If you believe that the slaughter houses ought to be compared to the Holocaust, you really ought to get your head examined. A purely tasteless advertising campaign, but in the end it really tells you what PETAs ideas are--animals are superior to humans, people should eat a vegan diet, hunting and fishing are wrong, leather jackets are wrong, rat testing is wrong...basically, the same old shit.

Listen, I am against animal abuse, I think if you commit a crime like animal cruelty you ought to be charged with a felony and locked up for a while. But, there is a difference between these beliefs and the radical PETA agenda. I dont take people who feel the need to dump chicket shit all over an Atlanta street to get their point across. I dont care about the chickens in slaughterhouses, I dont know what they feel, their level of pain, and you wanna know something...neither do you!

The bottom line, Mx5, is that in your uber-sensitivity you blindly throw yourself to these groups throwing away all rational thought.

http://www.masskilling.com/

Above is the link that explains quite clearly their latest campaign, if you at least read the subscript involved you will understand *why* they have made the comparisons. It's chilling to realise the same modern factory farming techniques are extremely similar to what Jews, Gypsies and Homosexuals went through with concentration camps. This is the point they are making.

As I have said a squillion times, I do not accept all of PeTA's methods or campaigns just as I don't with the government that I voted in. There are millitants in most organisations, these are the ones that get the most publicity when by far the majority are peacful.

The people of PeTA are not fools and certainly whilst they encourage people to become vegan, they realise that there is only so far that can take them. Take for instance the Burger King popup for a vegetarian burger on their site.

I don't think it's wrong to encourage people to look at how thier food animals are treated and for PeTA to go out of it's way to ensure a better lot for them.

But unfortunately a lot of people are either too stupid, ignorant, selfish or simply have no concept of being humane.

An extract from the abovelink:

""""The exhibit was funded by a Jewish philanthropist who has spent the past 25 years affiliated with the world's foremost Holocaust organizations and who recognized the moral and ethical imperative of making the public aware of the parallels between the Jewish genocide of WWII and the horrific and inhumane treatment of animals raised and slaughtered for food. As observers walk around the display, they will gain an understanding of the common roots of victimization and violence and how they can help fight these injustices through decisions that they make every time they eat.""""

It was a person of the Jewish faith that funded this.

And PeTA are certainly not trivialising the treatment of Jews in the second world war. Read the subtext.
