An angry vegan gang, composed of protesters from, stormed a Brazilian steakhouse recently. The mob played recordings of cows being slaughtered as patrons dined. A DAE spokeswoman stated, “In a time where we are experiencing mass environmental destruction, largely due to our unsustainable and unethical food choices, it is paramount that we put our egos and selfishness aside and accept that we are all connected, we are all animals.”
I doubt that the protesters would be pleased if pro-life members stormed their vegan restaurants or abortion clinics and played recordings of human babies being slaughtered for convenience. And who, exactly, must put their “egos and selfishness aside” and renounce their “unethical” choices? It only goes one way. “You must accept gay marriage, you must bake the gay couple a cake, you must accept abortion, you must allow transgenders in any bathroom or locker room they wish to use, you must accept that there are an infinite number of genders, you must not own guns, you must not say politically-incorrect things, you must provide us “safe spaces” on campus, you must not buy a big gas-guzzling vehicle, you must not smoke cigarettes (but we need to legalize marijuana!), you must not say “Merry Christmas,” we must ban the sale and use of plastic straws, you shouldn’t be allowed to buy a soft-drink in anything larger than 16-ounce cups, you must not eat meat…”
It never stops. The left is always pushing, always nagging, always angry, always… right. Or so it thinks. Conservatives don’t kill human babies.
The protesters left the restaurant after about 20 minutes and went outside to picket. Some carried anti-meat signs saying, “It’s not food, it’s violence.” Another sign read: “Viva! Are you a baby eater?” and sported profiles of small animals underneath the lettering.
It is interesting that the DAE spokeswoman chose to say it is crucial “that we put our egos and selfishness aside and accept that we are all connected, we are all animals. How are animals connected in the wild? They eat each other, that’s how. That’s called an “ecosystem.” Even if one doesn’t believe in the Biblical idea that man was given dominion over the Earth’s flora and fauna, it doesn’t take a scientist to see that Mother Nature’s plan is for everything to devour everything else. Even after a body is dead.
So, Direct Action Everywhere dumbass hypocrites, go cut up and puree innocent fruits and vegetables. But, wait a minute, doesn’t agriculture, in and of itself, strip the very soil of precious nutrients and further deplete our rapidly dwindling supplies of clean water?
I’m going to have my steak and eat it too. If DAE members have a beef with that, they can run for their safe spaces.
