While I don’t have a problem with pouring Yellow Tail wine on the ground. (Sorry folks, it is really awful, awful, awful, wine). I get a kick out of people who think radical vegans are going to take over the world.
In a tan, worn Carhartt jacket and black cowboy hat, South Dakota rancher Troy Hadrick is an unlikely digital folk hero, a viral warrior.
But there he is on YouTube, pouring out a bottle of Yellow Tail wine – by the looks of it, a nice sparkling white – onto the snowy, hoof-trampled ground with his winter-coated cattle looking on. The act is in protest of the company’s $100,000 donation to the Humane Society of the United States.
“My concern is with the Humane Society of the United States, which isn’t connected at all with the dog and cat shelters in our local communities,” the fifth-generation Vale rancher said Thursday. “This is an organization that’s pushing a vegan agenda in this country, and that concerns me. That donation is going to go to efforts to try and put me out of business, and I’m just not going to support a company that does that.”
WTF is a Vegan agenda? Drinking Soy Milk with your latte while eating lima beans? Get a life dude. Though, I will admit, I do get a kick out of my favorite cartoonist, Dan Piraro, a militant Vegan;
