An Australian grazier has revealed that he has been receiving angry phone calls from vegan protesters, with one furious woman claiming that lettuce has a ‘heartbeat.’
Brendan Farrell is the founder of Burrumbuttock Hay Runners group – a charity that provides hay to drought-stricken farmers.
In a short video message, Farrell slammed the vegan protesters who stormed abattoirs in Queensland and New South Wales, and chained themselves to vehicles in Melbourne’s CBD on Monday.
‘Vegans are going bananas,’ the farmer said in the clip posted on his charity’s Facebook page.
‘Blockades left, right and center. Flinders Street Station is in chaos. Abattoirs chained up, people locking themselves up here, there and everywhere,’ he continued.
‘I am just gobsmacked with some of the bulls**t that’s coming out these people’s mouths on what they are trying to achieve.’
Farrell revealed that one woman called him and claimed that lettuces are alive.
‘I answer every call because that’s what I do – and the Sheila goes she didn’t like the last post I done on Facebook because lettuces have got a heartbeat… Lettuce. Has. A. Heartbeat,’ he said.
‘Some people have just got no bloody idea. None.’
He sneered at the vegan protesters, saying he will be having delicious steaks from his cows this Christmas.
‘I’m out feeding cows and I can tell you what there’s a steer here that’s going to be bloody delicious at Christmas time,’ he said.
‘I can’t wait to hook into it. That’s just me. That’s what we do. Next door neighbor’s running lamb at the moment.
‘Bet you he is licking his chops too at Christmas time. Fair Dinkum.’
Police arrested 39 protesters in Melbourne on Monday after their protests disturbed transportation, causing outrage among the commuters.
Nine protesters were also arrested in the NSW Tabelands after they chained themselves to a conveyor in an abattoir on Mazamat Road at around 4 am.
Protesters also gathered at Hyde Park before storming the streets in Hobart as well as the Sydney CBD.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the protesters were ‘green-collar criminals’ who were causing grieve losses to the farmers of the country.
‘This is just another form of activism that I think runs against the national interest, and the national interest is being able to farm their own land,’ Morrison told 2GB.
An activist group, Aussie Farms, was behind the protests which brought life to a standstill in many areas.
The government has vowed to take strict action after the organization refused to take down the address and contact details of Australian farmers displayed on its website.
‘I’m expecting state governments – as I’m sure they will – to do their jobs,’ Morrison added.
