I disagree. The animals rights movement isn't going to truly get off the ground until its supporters are no longer characterized as wackos who dump red paint on people and harass children with videos of cows being slaughtered.
The animal rights movement is basically where it's at today because of PETA. It's never going to reach the point where everyone becomes vegan, but the backlash to fur, factory farms, and other animal abuses that don't involve eating them can be traced almost directly to PETA.
Also, I think PETA's number one priority, regardless of what they may claim, is to promote PETA, and at that, they are very good.
