What makes a civil rights movement? Peta

Peta was founded in 1980. I disagree with their basic beliefs. While I personally might agree with many of their precepts, their overall approach is wrong:

PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other "pests," and the abuse of backyard dogs.

The main issue we should wonder about is why their "movement" hasn't been embraced the way the gay rights movement has throughout the media and civil society. Is it a lack of smart political leaders? Is it that too many powerful people love to eat meat? Too many hunters?

It can't be that the idea is too crazy. I've found out that doesn't exist.

To the left wingers to the media and their supporters, what gives?
