Vegan protesters at rodeo run for lives, disbanded by cowboys using horses and whips

A rodeo is no place for vegan protesters, and a group of more than 40 of them have learned that the hard way.

A video going viral through LiveLeak and other sites shows a group of vegan protesters attempting to disrupt a dressage contest — a competition where horses and their owners perform a series of movements from memory — only to face an anti-protest from the cowboys in attendance.

LiveLeak reported about the video, “This Saturday at La Exposición de Gandadería, – commonly known as Expo Rural – more than 40 vegan activists staged a peaceful protest interrupting a dressage contest. The activists walked onto the central track, bearing posters with slogans against the exploitation of animals.”

Less than a minute later a group of cowboys, or guachos, began riding horses into the group, disrupting the protest. They essentially moved the protesters as they would cattle, circling them, pushing them with their horses, and even using whips. They then began pushing the protesters out of the arena. The audience seemed to be on their side as they erupted into applause as the protesters were driven away and ran around in confusion over what was happening.

If you’re a vegan protester and you show up at a rodeo and protest people eating meat, this is probably the exact sort of response you should expect.

Folks have been taking to social media to celebrate the horse-riding heroes who ran off the protesters.

“Activist Vegans are the worst. They try to ruin everything,” one Twitter user wrote when sharing the video.

Another wrote, “Just gotta fight crazy with crazy sometimes.”

“Mess with a cowboy, you get the horse?” replied another.

“If two vegans argue with each other, is it a ‘beef?'” another responded.

Yet another said, “Don’t mess with cowboys.”

How ironic that a group of vegans show up to protest eating meat and they end up being treated just like cattle. It speaks to larger points about the attractiveness leftism has for followers and dependent thinkers.

No matter your politics, this video really speaks to a larger issue that we see played out on a national and international platform every single day. There is an issue of respect in today’s political discourse. If you’re a vegan, fine. If you’re a vegan who wants to promote your life choices, fine. However, to do so by interrupting an event like a rodeo and insulting people’s way of life directly to their face, nothing is going to be accomplished by doing that. You’re simply feeding the divisiveness in the world that is already out of control.

There’s a reason that audience applauded those men on horseback and there’s a reason social media is full of more voices celebrating them disbanding the protesters. People are fed up with this sort of behavior, no matter where it is happening. It’s ridiculous. If you act like cattle, you’re going to be treated like cattle. These protesters just learned that the hard way.
