More Fun with PETA and the KKK

PETA dresses in KKK garb outside Westminster Dog Show - USATODAY.com





I'm off to the barn to chop the head off a cabbage and butcher a pig.

Those peta people and their kkkrazy antics!

Of course it might transpire that everyone at the rally was actually an undercover agent in disguise.

Yes they are-that one in particular. I really don't see the need to protest Westminster.

I love that a 10 year old dog won the WDS- he came close to death years back, from a bacterial infection.

you guys honestly have no problem with the idea of pure bred dogs being bought for thousands of dollars while countless others are euthanized in pounds because nobody wants them?

Well of course I have a problem with that, but I don't honestly think that getting rid of Westminster/dog shows would solve that problem.

My beloved dog that I lost last Sept was from a rescue, and every dog I had as a pet was a "mutt".

Where, I live. We have animal shelters. And the animals are put up for adoption. I don't think they are euthanized, unless they are so sick. They cannot be made well. Just about, everyone I know, who has a cat or a dog, has adopted their furry best friend, from one of these shelters. Myself included.

Please spay or neuter your pets!

Yes I think it would be far more productive for PETA to focus on spaying and neutering rather than dressing up in Klan garb in NYC-but spaying and neutering is hardly as attention grabbing as that is.

I don't think it's about getting rid of the Westminster Dog Shows, PETA are annoying but they are far from stupid - and far more shrewd than a lot of people will give them credit.

This is all about getting information to as many as possible, as long as it gets people talking about the subject, it's a success as far as I'm concerned.

My problem is that yes, in a lot of cases their tactics tend to go right over the heads of their intended targets. If anything, I think they are overestimating the intelligence level of the public.

but hey, bad press is still press...

Bob Barker talking about spaying and neutering every day on the Price Is Right may have been far more effective. I don't think PETA is stupid and of course it's good that they get people talking..I just think that perhaps PETA has become too much about PETA and not enough about what they are trying to accomplish. And at a certain point making it too much about you might be counterproductive.

As much as I love animals, until we value human life and dignity on a grand scale we won't be capable of doing it for our furry friends.

But they do need champions and every progressive step counts.

I think that koala pic from Victoria does exponentially more for the cause of respecting and nurturing animals, wildlife and nature than any shock value PETA gets out of this and other stunts.
