Worst Opinion Piece from Thanksgiving

I was reading this nasty, mean-spirited "opinion piece" in the Detroit News and thinking, "Wow, what asshole is this guy?" Then I found out it's a representative from the Center for Consumer Freedom, a "a nonprofit coalition supported by restaurants, food companies and consumers to promote personal responsibility and protect consumer choices."

Enough said.

Whilst I would agree that American families should go on enjoying their Thankgiving traditions, and that some animal rights groups may go a little over the top every now and then, articles like this, which appear to paint everyone who cares about animal welfare as uninformed extremists are not constructive in any way.

Articles like this completely ignore the constructive role which many (like yourself) who care about the genuine welfare of animals play in debates on matters of real importance.
