In PETA’s newest desperate attack on the traditional Thanksgiving meal, the extremist animal advocacy group wants diners to consider the history of the bird on their table.
Specifically, whether the turkey was “sexually assaulted” before being cooked and carved.
The grotesque article from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals uses anonymous sources and selectively edited footage, allegedly taken inside a commercial turkey factory farm in Arkansas.
PETA accuses farmworkers of violating turkeys, killing them indiscriminately for fun, and even “pretending to rape” the birds.
According to the animal activist group, this problem isn’t contained to a single turkey farm in Arkansas but is a widespread culture that affects dairy farms and swineherds as well.
To make matters worse, PETA has the audacity to compare the alleged mistreatment of these birds and beasts to the historic plight of women.
“Farms don’t see animals as individuals. They view them as objects to be used for their own ends,” PETA asserts. “Sound familiar?”
“Women have been fighting that same battle for centuries and are still fighting it today. And if you’re saying, ‘But they’re just animals,’ remember that up until very recently, we were ‘just women.’”
