It’s a brave pig who can crash a barbecue hosted by a group of hunters. But that’s exactly what two PETA “pigs” did at a campaign stop for Newt Gingrich in South Carolina. The “pigs” were protesting taxpayer subsidies of cruel factory farms.

Although they were quickly shown the door, the precocious “pigs” made the most of it, with a grand exit atop a convertible with flags waving and country music blasting while photographers snapped away.

    —an excellent display… it may seem trite compared to the torturous mass murder it is protesting, but it hopefully gets the point across without being too preachy.

    The old saying is if you are cruel to animals you’ll be cruel with your love ones as well and I think most of the time its true. So sad and its not getting any better.
