PETA Says AKC Is Like KKK? WTF?

by Brad Warbiany

I’m sure this will get their point across:

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals knows how to grab attention. And show off its laundry.

The animal rights group, which every year stages a protest at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, had two of its members dress in Ku Klux Klan garb outside Madison Square Garden on Monday.

Their goal, according to a post on the PETA website, was to draw a parallel between the KKK and the American Kennel Club. “Obviously it’s an uncomfortable comparison,” PETA spokesman Michael McGraw told the Associated Press.

But the AKC is trying to create a “master race” when it comes to pure-bred dogs, he added. “It’s a very apt comparison.”

The group passed out brochures implying the Klan and AKC have the goal of “pure bloodlines” in common.

There’s a bit of a difference, though… Last time I checked, the AKC wasn’t burning crosses outside the homes of people who own mutts. I’m not sure if this is a real-world corollary of Godwin’s law, but I think PETA has already lost this round.

So what’s the over/under on when the media starts indicting PETA for “hate speech”?
