Planet of the Apes — or Idiots

This does not elevate apes — it denigrates humans.

The European Court of Human Rights has agreed to a preliminary hearing to determine whether chimpanzees are entitled to the legal status and protections granted to human beings.

Wanna hear the really scary part?

A win for the group could have sweeping ramifications for the entire European Union, with legal precedent existing for apes — and possibly other animals — to receive the rights, protections, and even medical, financial, and social benefits of human beings.

And you thought entitlement programs were out of control now. . . .
