PETA annoys me

And not just PETA. Any group that acts unreasonably in the pursuit of their goals annoys me.

I think it’s great when people fight for something they believe in. I think it’s better when they apply some rationality to their efforts.

Actually, what I’d love to see are statistics measuring the effectiveness of radical behaviour. I suspect that those statistics would show just how ineffective it is.

I dislike when high-profile political figures play the race card without warrant, whether it’s a French politician attacking the captain of the Canadian hockey team or an African-American preacher deciding that three caucasian lacrosse players are guilty long before they’re eventually proven guilty.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: race and ethnicity will be an issue so long as we make it an issue. That goes for both the people who commit hate crimes, and the people who condemn every single thing as a hate crime.

And that’s all I have to say about that.
