I went to the Southern Poverty Law Center's website and searched for PETA. Lo and behold, the center quotes Friedrich at an animal rights conference: "If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then of course we're going to be blowing things up and smashing windows. ... I think it's a great way to bring about animal liberation, considering the level of suffering, the atrocities. I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories and the banks that fund them exploded tomorrow."

So nice people believe it's wrong to shock chickens but OK to bomb places where human beings work. Hmmm. Maybe that's why I can't help but consider PETA to be the Sinn Fein of the animal rights movement.
