(INTELLIHUB) — Infamous animal rights organization PETA has continued their string of absurd claims, this time publishing a video that literally claims that drinking milk could mean you are a racist.
The group posted the video on Friday in a Tweet that reads, “Did you know that milk has long been a symbol used by white supremacists?”
Yes, you read that right. Drinking milk, a dairy product bought by tens of millions of people a day, is actually a secret symbol of racism according to the great minds at PETA.
As a Heat Street article on the absurdity noted, the claims in the video are, “alternative facts accompanied by an equally ludicrous video, which they published on social media. They call milk the neo-Nazi drink of choice, stating that it has “long been” a symbol used by white supremacist groups as a thinly veiled allegory for racial purity.”
This nonsense coming from the likes of PETA seems to be an attempt to capture the leftist hysteria pushed throughout the mainstream media in the wake of the rise of Donald Trump.
Amazingly, this may not even be the most absurd thing to come from PETA when you consider that in early November 2016 they actually published a video in which they compare animal exploitation to sexual assault.
The video includes numerous women describing their horrific rapes before literally comparing them to some of the admittedly sick things that happen in large-scale food production.
At this point it seems PETA is basically throwing out topics that they know are being talked about in the public sphere and comparing them to what happens in factory farms. Whether or not the comparisons actually make sense apparently does not matter.
