Der Yid meets PETA
(click for larger image)
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) caused a ruckus when they compared eating chicken to the Holocaust with the ill-advised ad campaign called "Holocaust on your plate". Der Yid took a page out of their infamous book, by comparing the internet to a oven in Auschwitz. The point here is not to debate whether or not the internet is harmful to innocent Jewish souls, and that Jews should buy only those cellphones that are "approved" by Rabbonim, which is the inderlying message of the ad shown here, but rather how they go about making that point.
You think they took this a bit far? You think that's an understatement?
You would think that a community that was built by holocaust survivors would be more sensitive to the issue and would find some other way to convey their message, if there's a message to be had at all. I just don't think that PDA's are the root of all evil, but that's just my opinion. Maybe they should've shown actual dead bodies, not just crematoriums?
