Comment: This is another example of the hypocrisy of the liberal left. While they lecture us on homophobia, racism, and anti-semitism, here they are engaging in the very same thing they claim to be against!
What if Joel Salatin – a libertarian – were to equate factory farmed chickens with Jewish concentration camp victims and black slaves? The phony left would label him a racist, and they would trespass on Polyface Farms’ private property and harass not only Salatin but anybody who dares support Salatin’s farm with their money. And chances are Salatin’s actions would get him investigated by the IRS. After all, Obama is using the IRS as a political retaliation machine against anybody and everybody who doesn’t support his unconstitutional actions.
It’s sad that the phony right-wing Center for Consumer Freedom – a slimy front group funded by food industry giants including Monsanto and PepsiCo – is the only place reporting this disgusting hypocrisy. There’s nothing on MSNBC about this story. There’s nothing on Daily Kos about this story.
So why is the liberal left ignoring this story?
According to the liberal left, if you’re a liberal and you equate chickens – remember, the animal rights wackos have already said there is no difference between factory farms and cage-free/free-range/humane farms – with Jews and blacks, you are a darling of the phony civil rights movement which is not about “freedom for all” but “enslavement for all”, yet if you’re a libertarian or conservative and equate factory factory farmed chickens with enslaved Jews and enslaved blacks, you’re a racist and a Jew-hating anti-semite!
Also, notice how the Center for Consumer Freedom conveniently ignores the fact that Matthew Prescott – the person behind PETA’s anti-semitic “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign – is a Zionist Jew. Notice how CCF deliberately fails to expose Prescott’s hypocrisy.
And why does CCF ignore that fact?
Because CCF is run by Rick Berman, a Zionist Jew.
Remember, Zionist Jews are never condemned by the mainstream media and the Zionist front groups such as the ADL or SPLC for mocking the Holocaust, while others are labelled anti-semitic for the same thing.
Ad Targets Russell Simmons’ Deplorable Comparisons of Treatment of Animals to Jews and African Americans
“Outrageous, Offensive and Insensitive” Comments Put the Vegan Celebrity in Company With Other Leading Animal Rights Fanatics
Washington, DC—Following vegan celebrity Russell Simmons’ recent comments likening New York City’s horse-drawn carriages to the Holocaust, HumaneWatch.org, a project of the non-profit Center for Consumer Freedom, ran an ad today in The New York Post highlighting the fact that Simmons’ line of thinking is commonplace among other animal rights fanatics. It includes statements of a similar nature made by leaders of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
Referring to the carriages, Simmons said, “It’s a Holocuast,” “There were people for slavery, remember? Slavery was fine,” and “There were people who put people in ovens. There are all kinds of ethnic cleansing, people for it,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
The ad also highlights animal liberationists’ history of using similar comparisons of human oppression to the use of animals, focusing on the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
“While some may find Russell Simmons’ comparison of horse-drawn carriages to slavery and the Holocaust outrageous, this kind of thinking is emblematic of the animal liberationists at PETA and the Humane Society of the United States,” Will Coggin, director of research for HumaneWatch.org, said. “They seek to impose their radical agenda on the rest of us by shutting down the use of animals in agriculture, circuses, marine parks, and medical research and will use disgraceful comparisons to further their goals.”
Like Simmons, HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle has also compared the treatment of animals to enslaved humans saying, “[For 3,000 years] virtually every major statesman, philosopher, theologian, writer, and critic accepted the existence and legitimacy of slavery… The same can be said of animals.”
HSUS food policy director Matthew Prescott devised a “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign equating animal-farming to the systematic killing of 6 million Jews and 4 million other victims of Nazism including homosexuals, people with disabilities and other religious and racial minorities. Prescott’s display toured the country in 2003. Prescott, like a number of other HSUS employees, previously worked for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The group also frequently equates animal cruelty to slavery and genocide. Its founder Ingrid Newkirk infamously said, “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.”
“The comparison of animal suffering to that of human suffering in the Holocaust and in slavery is outrageous, offensive and insensitive,” Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League and himself a Holocaust survivor, said in a statement about Russell Simmons’ remarks. “I believe he owes an apology to the Jewish and African-American communities. The murder of six million Jews and millions of others who perished in the Holocaust, and the many millions who suffered under slavery, should never be used to make a political point.”
Simmons, who said, “F**k no, I’m not apologizing” for the offensive remark, later claimed he wasn’t talking about “the” Holocaust and has done more than “most blacks” when it comes to fighting anti-Semitism.
