  When do we get to kill these PETA wankers out of hand?
PETA resumes display comparing animal cruelty to slavery: "RICHMOND, Va. One month after suspending an exhibit comparing animal cruelty to slavery, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is resuming the traveling show on the West Coast.
PETA came under fire after a man began yelling that the exhibit was racist during an August fourth showing in New Haven, Connecticut. National civil rights groups, including the N-Doubl-A-Cp said the comparison demeaned blacks.

The showing, dubbed the Animal Liberation Project, involves a display of panels juxtaposing graphic images of slavery and other human abuse with pictures of chained animals. Some of the displays compares animal cruelty to black civil rights abuses in Montgomery, Alabama.

In one panel, titled 'Hanging,' a white mob surrounds two lynched blacks swinging from a tree. A nearby picture shows a cow hanging in a slaughterhouse.

PETA president Ingrid Newkirk defended the decision to continue the show, even as she acknowledged the display's impact."
