Time for Some Veal

PETA airs commercials comparing meat to the Holocaust. In Germany.

This reminds me of the anti-Issue 3 ads comparing it to Klansmen and Nazis. I was teaching Freshmen English at the time and several otherwise liberal students wrote angry gay-bashing essays in response to the ads.

I'm not arguing one way or the other but I have personally observed how commercials like that backfire.
