Looks like PETA – no, not people for eating tasty animals, but the one chock full of nuts – has nowsued Sea World for keeping their Orca Whales as slaves:
The Associated Press explains the SeaWorld case thusly:
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is accusing the SeaWorld parks of keeping five star-performer whales in conditions that violate the 13th Amendment ban on slavery. SeaWorld depicted the suit as baseless.
The chances of the suit succeeding are slim, according to legal experts not involved in the case; any judge who hews to the original intent of the authors of the amendment is unlikely to find that they wanted to protect animals. But PETA relishes engaging in the court of public opinion, as evidenced by its provocative anti-fur and pro-vegan campaigns.
Yeah, that’s it! And they are black too! RACIALISTS! Can these morons make themselves even less liked than this? Genius.
