I rarely mention my eating habits. Unless we’re planning to eat together you might never know. I’m a vegan. I am as vegan as the next vegan, but last night made me ashamed to be a vegan. I finally determined why people dislike us. We are not represented well. Vocal vegans ruin it for everybody. Why can’t we just eat the damn kale and leave people alone?
Yesterday was Super Tuesday, and as Joe Biden was giving a pep talk, two young vegan women interrupted his speech, holding signs with a picture of a cow (Devin Nunes’Cow?) and the printed words “Let Dairy Die.”
Profound? No, but to be fair, vegans are notoriously deficient in vitamin B12. B12 can affect your intelligence. I know this from experience. B12 supplements aren’t cheap. I paid for them with my children’s milk money. (I let dairy die.) B12 is so important to cognition, that if you miss taking it one day you’ll forget to take it forever, because of the B12 deficiency. This dooms you to eternal stupidity.
This is how it went down. The first woman weakly “stormed” the stage, with an indoor voice shouted – “let dairy die.” She was ushered off by some old guy in a suit.
That was when the second protester “leaped” into action, with the same sign and same words. She was overtaken by Joe Biden’s 200-year-old wife, Jill. Okay, she’s in her late sixties, and she looks much younger, but the vegan looked like a twenty-year-old. So now we all look weak. Thanks.
It is my opinion that vegans who need attention are usually not vegan for the long hall. Look at all the YouTube vegans who have fallen off the chuck wagon. They immediately decide to take on an anti-vegan platform trying to sway people’s eating habits in the other direction.
The dairy industry is at the bottom of the long list of animal cruelty offenders. Revolutionary vegans should be focusing their “energy” on the meat industry. See link below.
Anyway. I don’t care what you eat, because it wouldn’t matter if I did.
Now on to the results of Super Tuesday. Biden had a good night, so GOP/Russian propaganda trolls are out en masse this morning, pushing conspiracy theories, calling the process “rigged.” Former strange presidential candidate Marianne Williamson called it Biden’s success a “coup.” – (Trump verbiage.)
For the love of God, people voted; that is how democracy works. Bernie’s base has been stagnant at around 33% for years. He was in the lead because the moderate vote was split between so many moderate candidates. Three moderates dropped out, and low and behold, Bernie’s 33% is showing.
If you don’t like the results, that doesn’t make it, conspiracy or a coup. I want Warren to be president, but you don’t see me stumbling onto any stages holding a cow sign and stage whispering “cheese…”
I voted for Bernie in 2016. Soon thereafter, I realized he’s that very divisive, and so are some of his people. We are doing the divisive president with mean follower thing now, and it’s not my favorite. Bernie himself is saying Democrats buy elections. Biden spent not a dime in Massachusetts, North Carolina, Maine, or Virginia. He focused on South Carolina. Bernie spent millions in each. Biden has spent the least amount of any candidate in the race. But he won overwhelmingly.
”The establishment had nothing to do with Joe Biden’s victory. He’s flat broke. He has not a single ad on the air … His victory is owed to African American voters, male and female, of every age in South Carolina, full stop.” ~MSNBC Commentator Nicolle Wallace
Maybe Biden is in the lead because of his calm presence; we are tired of the chaos. Bernie hates democrats but he wants to lead democrats. How is that going to work? His constant shouting is stressful for me. Maybe I’m feeling this stress because of a vegan vitamin deficiency. I believe if Bernie is nominated, it will be difficult for Democrats, of every dietary predilection, to win back the Senate. I will vote for Bernie in November if he’s the nominee. How many Bernie supporters would vote for a nominee who is not Bernie Sanders?
Can we all just calm the fuck down? I’m talking to everyone, including the vegans out there.
P..S Bloomberg just dropped out and is now supporting Biden. This doesn’t bode well for Bernie or Trump.
The following is a trailer for the film ’Cowspiracy.’ It’s not one of those gory animal cruelty films but focuses on the meat industry and their unscrupulous behavior. I recommend watching it.
Did I use the word ”vegan” enough in this post?
