PETA Compares Treatment of Animals to Minority Discrimination

PETA's derangement continues. The Hill (h/t Weasel Zippers) reports on a letter from PETA urging Obama to skip the Thanksgiving "Turkey Pardon" ceremony. The letter stated, in part:
"You understand so well that African-Americans, women, and members of the LGBT community have been poorly served throughout history, and now I am asking you to consider other living beings who are ridiculed, belittled, and treated as if their sentience, feelings, and very natures count for nothing," wrote PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in the letter.

The letter also objects to the idea that the birds could be pardoned, arguing "they are not guilty of anything other than being born into a world of prejudice."
Moral equivalency run amok.
