People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is a great organization that exists for those who are conscious about the civil rights of animals. Some might say, “Well, why do you say that animals have civil rights? They are not that important because they are not human beings.”
Even though animals may not be as important as humans, they still deserve to be treated with as much respect as possible. When we eat meat or wear animal skins, we are using body parts from animals who have experienced violent deaths at the hands of human beings.
There is an argument out there that using the bodies of animals is a natural thing that has gone on for ages, and whoever is stronger in nature is supposed to win.
However, even if you eat animal meats or wear animal skins, you must be weary of how the animals were treated before and when they were slaughtered. Yes, despite whatever way humans treated them in life, animals who were slaughtered were “slaughtered anyway.”
However, if you are raising animals for slaughter, the most ethical thing is to provide them with the best conditions, and to slaughter them in the most humane ways.
PETA has gruesome videos on its website that were taken inside facilities where animals are slaughtered and raised. Their website shows scenes that would be considered too cruel for a human to experience.
These scenes include animals who are cramped in cages and defecating on each other, animals with broken limbs that are not being tended to, animals that are still alive as they are being skinned and all kinds of blood and gore.
The Anti-Defamation League is an organization that is particularly fond of protecting the rights of Jews, though they also branch out to protecting the rights of groups that have historically been persecuted minorities in America. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia
One of the ideas that this organization runs on is the notion that Western society is Eurocentric, and that White people are automatically privileged. In this logic, being pro-White, or even taking sympathy for the plight of White people, is considered to be wrong, ignorant and bad for humanity.
The Anti-Defamation League, whether you like some of their ideologies or not, has an interesting archive on their website of “hate symbols.” These symbols of hate are actually anything that is perceived as being pro-White.
Some of these symbols may be more radical or hateful than others, but it’s not that easy to tell because everything is lumped up together in one list. In reality, different symbols have different meanings and political ideologies attached to them.
Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey do not have a database of hate symbols on their website. However, the website for their organization, the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, is ripe with all kinds of information about DACA, Sheriff Arpaio, DREAMERs and information about what to do if you are an undocumented immigrant in a hostile political atmosphere.
