If you understood their concerns, you would realize that PETA people are not 'crazy.'
While their hearts might be in the right place its their methodology which contributes to why people think they are crazy. Â PETA is most definatly a cult. Â They brainwash their members to think exactly alike. Â Their goal is "animal liberation." Â They equate it to the freeing of the slaves in the 1800's. Â Thus, anyone who has a cat, dog, parrot, gerbal, or goldfish, etc. is thought of as being the "massa" to some unfortunate "slave" of an animal. Â They advocate terroism to get their goals met. Â At Michigan State University a few years ago, some one (I can't remember his name) burned down a research lab where animal testing was goin on. Â People were injured and almost killed. Â PETA celebrated this man, albit quietly as they want to uphold the image they have. Â PETA would also like to see the use of products designed and discovered using animal. Â EVERYTHING. Â Which is hypocritical, because the head of PETA is a diabetic and requires insulin- developed from animals. Definatly check out the PETA episode in the second season of Penn and Teller:Bullshit. which airs on Showtime. Â They present the facts to the PETA machine, with a lot of humor. Â There are less humorous sources as well.
