[sharenow]

Liberals just can’t leave tradition alone.

A group of animal rights activists stormed Coney Island’s annual Independence Day hot dog eating contest sponsored by Nathan’s Famous, Inc., and even snatched a frankfurter out of the hands of contestant Crazy Legs Conti before he could get it into his mouth.

Members of the Direct Action Everywhere organization, came dressed as event supporters, sporting red shirts and white straw hats with the Nathan’s 100th anniversary logo on the band.

The protesters sprayed ketchup over contestants, calling it fake blood thrown to “represent the violence of animal agriculture,” according to The New York Daily News.

Police arrested three activists who stormed the stage at Coney Island, Brooklyn.

“This grotesque event takes a day of celebration and turns it into a festival of violence and gore for animals no different than our dogs and cats,” activist Rachel Zeigler said in a statement released after the contest.

This isn’t a first for Nathan’s Famous annual contest. Direct Action Everywhere and other animal rights groups have protested the frankfurter eating contest, a natural for the Fourth of July when friends and families traditionally get together to grill steaks, hamburgers and hot dogs.

All of which prompts carnivores to ask a burning question:
