The noted Washington, DC-based attorney, Nathan Lewin, the attorney for AgriProcessors/Rubashkin, was on Zev Brenner's TalkLine radio show tonight. I was unable to get sound using three different browsers and several media players, but I called in anyway.
Briefly, I asked Mr. Lewin if he stood by his comparison of PETA to the Nazis. He answered, "Yes." I asked him why. He said the Nazi's first step was to outlaw kosher slaughter and use images from it to make the Jews look cruel, and PETA is doing the same to outlaw all slaughter. I pointed out that PETA itself says that correctly done kosher slaughter is humane, although they do want all humans to be vegans. I then asked Mr. Lewin if he had any evidence to backup his assertion that Peta was against all kosher slaughter.. He said, "Yes. Their [PETA's] record."
I also asked him if anything was wrong in the AgriProcessor slaughterhouse. "No," Mr. Lewin said. "I mean, I saw a cow get up and walk, but, no." He also said that it was one cow out of 18,000.
We can now add the cheapening of the Holocaust to the sins of Rubashkin and company.
