Factory Farming de-Chickenizes Birds
This letter appeared in the Spokane
The overfed imbecile who banged-out
the chicken-scratch entitled “PETA Stoops to New Lows With Exhibit” (Aug.
7, 2003) stooped to new lows by reveling in his conquest over the chicken
who gave her life for his meal of “two thighs and drumstick”. It’s obvious
from his pulp drivel that animal protein is anything but brain food.
If he had looked at the display with
half an open mind, he should have seen that the parallels between the
Holocaust and the treatment and mass murder of billions of factory-farmed
animals are numerous--the only minor difference being the victims’
species. For example, while it de-humanized Jews to be herded onto “cattle
cars” and kept in camps away from anything familiar to them,
factory-farmed chickens are not only painfully de-beaked, they are de-chickenized--forced
to live their entire lives in windowless barns with less space between
them than plants in a greenhouse.
His suggestion that the comparison
diminishes the Holocaust shows his failure to appreciate the perpetual
abuse and massacre of millions of sentient animals per HOUR. If he really
does not want “to see animals tormented or being made to suffer
needlessly” he should be siding with
PETA’s call to end factory farming.
