Joey Carbstrong told the hosts, Georgie Gardner and Casey Treloar, on the Channel 9’s Today show he likened to the meat industry to the killing of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

According to the Daily Mail, Carbstrong had been on the show to discuss the dairy industry. The paper reported that Carbstrong sees things from the animals’ perspective and that he said on TV: “When you see abuse and cruelty happening to animals, it’s natural to have an emotional response,” the 33-year-old said. “The standard way we kill pigs in Australia is with a gas chamber. Exactly the same way Nazi’s killed Jews in World War II.

 So we’re using gas chambers every single day, killing millions and millions of pigs and they’re screaming, begging for their lives in these gas chambers, how is that any different?”

The Research Director of The Executive Council of Australian Jewry Julie Nathan told J-Wire: “Animal welfare is an extremely important issue. However, to go down the track of claiming that the mass slaughter of animals for human consumption is the same as the deliberate and planned genocide of a people, due only to their ethnicity, is to take the issue totally out of perspective, and to lose credibility. It does not serve the cause of better treatment of animals.”

    By his idiotic comparison between the Holocaust and animal slaughter for human consumption, this gentleman is doing more harm to his cause than good. If he can’t see the difference, perhaps he needs some basic education on both issues.
