As I pointed out in a previous post involving a shameless Canadian AR group, ARAs have a pretty extensive track record of exploiting children for ideological gain. No one is as proficient at it as PeTA, so it should come as no surprise that it was at a PeTA protest in the Detroit area that a 7-year old boy and a 5-year old girl in a chicken costume were found with two near-naked women ( come on PeTA, at least you could come up with a new, original shtick, the naked ladies are getting tiresome ). A five year old child dressed up in chicken costume, for no other reason than to satisfy the ideological goals of rabid activist adults; and add to that, hanging around with adults who feel the need to draw attention to themselves by going nearly naked in public, and you have a sick situation indeed. Sick, shameful, and utterly reprehensible. But hey, the sick and the repugnant is just another day at the office for Ingrid and her disciples.
