Bizarre ravings

Written by 

Animal rights group Peta is ruffling feathers with its latest claim, alleging that cow milk is a symbol used by white supremacists.

Its logic (!) runs this way: cows are controlled by humans in a way that resembles the mindset of a white supremacist.

Twitter users are furious. One tweeted, “Hi @peta we darkies drink loads of cow milk and buffalo milk and eat stuff made of that milk, nearly all of it white. Your post-truth bull is just that -- a load of cattle crap which we put to good use as manure and fuel. One more reason to #DitchPeta”.

Another recommended yoga to the activists: “Have you gone insane @PETA? Do some yoga headstands and pray for your idiocy to drain out of your ears.”

Even Judith Collins joined in, “What an entirely foolish statement,” she tweeted.
