Vegans Have Beef with BBQ Festival, Protest for 'Species Equality'


The vegans are coming! The vegans are coming! Someone get me steak immediately! From what I’ve heard, it works just like garlic on vampires.

Stupidity struck again over the weekend at a Bay Area festival in California when vegan activists — who promote “species equality” — stormed the festival stage and protested.

Don’t worry. People at the King of the County BBQ Challenge & Music Festival in Martinez, Calif. didn’t take the protesters seriously, either.

Members of animal rights “platform” Direct Action Everywhere thought it would be a great idea to protest a barbecue festival on Father’s Day weekend, when people barbecue almost as much as Independence Day. Activists held up signs that read, "It's not food. It's violence."

Take a look at the video below to watch the killers of fun at work:

How do these people maintain such a joyless existence, especially when there’s so much delicious meat around? Plus, how much did these activists think they were going to get accomplished at a festival where drinking and the eating of meat rule the day?

Maybe it’s the fact that there’s no national holiday where people gather together for soy lattes and eggplant steaks. I love vegetables — but to use a quote from one of my favorite stand-up comedians — “I’d eat more vegetables, but they taste like they came out of the ground.”
