PETA dresses in KKK garb outside Westminster Dog Show

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals knows how to grab attention. And show off its laundry.
The animal rights group, which every year stages a protest at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, had two of its members dress in Ku Klux Klan garb outside Madison Square Garden on Monday.

Their goal, according to a post on the PETA website, was to draw a parallel between the KKK and the American Kennel Club. "Obviously it's an uncomfortable comparison," PETA spokesman Michael McGraw told the Associated Press.

But the AKC is trying to create a "master race" when it comes to pure-bred dogs, he added. "It's a very apt comparison."

The group passed out brochures implying the Klan and AKC have the goal of "pure bloodlines" in common.

"I can't speak for everyone, but the vast majority of the people exhibiting and handling and showing at Westminster are more interested in the health of dogs than anything else," Westminster spokesman David Frei told the AP.

"We want to produce the next generation of healthy and happy dogs," he said, "not just for the show ring but for the couches at home."

Bystander Fatima Walden told the AP the KKK imagery was inappropriate no matter what the message.

"They could have used something else as an example," she said. "You should be considerate to everybody."

Other than a shouting match during the hour-long protest, police said the scene remained calm.

I almost posted this in the Best/Worst thread.

It was a shame no one thought they were real klansmen...I would have died of laughter if the article ended with how they were beat/shot to death by some angry black persons.

Now that would teach them a lesson!

Check out the comments section....


PETA has unfortunately hoodwinked a lot of celebrities and have a HUGE amount of funding to advance their cause--which is NOT for the protection of animals. They totally oppose "slavery" of the animals which is how they view pet ownership, much less farm animals, etc. I do show dogs and have for over 20 years. Trust me, the problem with overpopulation is NOT the dedicated breeders--it's the casual owners who let their dogs run free and propogate at will and at every heat cycle (thus following what PETA espouses--which is dogs experiencing "freedom." These breeds were developed to help mankind -- herding stock, protecting their property, draft animals, or just providing companionship and love. I love mutts, too, and have "rescued" many of them over the years, but you cannot RELY on them to do the specific jobs for which many breeds were developed and are still used today. I have sheep and NEED my herding dogs to help me move the stock from one area to another. Without the instinct which is bred into them, it would be a much more difficult task.


This one has to hurt.

PETA reminds me more and more of the GOP. They will stop at nothing to grab the headlines, and the lower the blow, the better. This reminds me of the Republicans who on the one hand were comparing to Obama to Hitler, and on the other, screaming that he's a socialist.
-------------------------------This is one of the most ignorant things that I have ever read. First of all, Republicans do not own the "copyright" for political grandstanding or muckracking; one need look no further than Führer Obama's behavior during this year's stimulus bill "discussions." Mind you, Republicans are no better; their behavior (well, specifically, that of the Neo-Conservative wing of the Party) was equally appalling in the period following 9/11. But, I guess it's fashionable in these times to equate anything distasteful (including genocidal maniacs) to Republicans...

Second, it really isn't illogical to LOOSELY compare Obama to Hitler. Although the Nazis typically formed right-wing coalitions, their history was that of a socialist party. In most textbooks (well, most textbooks found in areas of this country where historical truths and not liberal lies are taught - the South, for example) Nazism is just as often referred to by its official name (National Socialism), and its adherents are rightly referred to as members of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Back on point: It's no secret that PETA is an organization founded and run by radical liberal nutjobs. Not one self-respecting, animal-loving conservative that I know (and there are many) would dare give it patronage for this very reason. They are a joke, albeit a very dangerous one. What's interesting is that they seem more concerned protecting animal life than human life. I'm sure that if you cross-referenced its members with members of Anti-Life (aka Pro-Choice) Organizations, the overlap would be telling. This means that a parent (mother or father) that chooses to kill a child out of convenience is more deserving (in their eyes) of protection than a poultry processing worker who mistreats a soon-to-be-dead turkey (true-life example of PETA litigation).

I emailed them and told them I was displeased with their association with PETA and would not be eating at any of their establishments in the future. I got this reply


Thank you very much for the feedback. We understand your concerns and we want to assure you that our agenda is not focused on PETA, but rather, on bringing the best Quiznos products to our customers. The initiatives outlined by PETA are relatively small corporate responsibility steps, and ones that we would undertake regardless of PETA’s interest. However, we do feel a level of responsibility for our environment and as such, we will continue to seek sustainability or “green” initiatives will be a win-win-win for Quiznos, our customers and the environment. It is our hope that you will support us in those initiatives and in return we promise to continue delivering the same great quality meats, cheeses and produce that you have come to expect from the Quiznos experience.

Good thing he checked we were using it in one of those deep fryers and they explode if they are frozen.

That's a funny read. I'm a big fan of mutts from the Humane Society, myself, but a lot of people are attached to their favorite breeds, sometimes for good reasons. My mom can't have big dogs in her condo, so she buys yorkies, knowing they won't get big. Some people buy labs because they have a reputation for being good family dogs.


One of the things that abolitionists pointed to when making the case against slavery was that it led to people being treated like animals-being bred for strength and things like that. PETA is trying to reverse that argument, to make a case that few agree with.
