Reality Is Not To Be Taught

At least not at the Kansas State Fair.
Kansas wrong to sanitize food’s journey to table

… Kansas went further.
In a letter conditionally approving PETA’s application, officials said PETA couldn’t show a video or pictures “that depict animal slaughter, animal harvest, hide removal, or show or depict live animals being decapitated, dismembered or butchered.”
In other words, don’t dream of portraying anything about how the sausage is made.
Such images must “not be readily visible to passersby or the general public on any side of the booth.”
Fair officials went too far.
PETA argues this is a content-based restriction at a public forum and promises a legal brawl. They’ve set the end of the day Thursday as a deadline: Back off, or we sue.
The Kansas State Fair markets itself as the state’s largest classroom, even offering lesson plans for teachers.

You can find the video PETA wants to show at the Kansas State Fair on YouTube.
It’s called Glass Walls.
Bring a box of tissues or a large crying towel.
