Hatred for Humanity Packaged as Empathy for Animals

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Beyond the Truth,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets, altogether. Eventually, companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship – enjoyment at a distance. If people want toys, they should buy inanimate objects. If they want companionship, they should seek it with their own kind.” – Ingrid Newkirk, PETA

My Commentary: Talk about disgusting… A companion animal isn’t a “toy,” lady, and symbiotic relationships don’t inherently require “distance.” Looks like thinly-veiled hatred for humanity, packaged as “ethical” and “empathetic,” to me.
