Morrissey draws parallels between Holocaust, pedophelia, and meat consumption

While there's a large segment of the Israeli population that is buoyed by having foreign entertainers defy the BDS initiative to perform in Israel, sometimes they must wish those entertainers would just shut up.

The English pop-singer Morrissey's latest ruminations comparing Auschwitz to a meat-processing plant are a case in point. There are some superficial parallels of course; Hitler's victims and that steak you're putting on the barbie tonight both took a cattle train to their demise.

I suppose the main flaw in his analogy is that cattle aren't people and people aren't cattle.

Beyond that, invoking the Holocaust to promote a vegan agenda strikes me as shamefully trite.

After all, wasn't Hitler a vegan?
