It seems Michael Savage was onto something when he said that liberalism is a mental disorder.

Last Thursday, FIOS 1 reported that a group of busybody liberals with apparently nothing better to do with their time are now protesting, harassing and threatening a farmer who plans to slaughter a cow to feed his family.  Instead, they’re demanding he purchase beef from a local Whole Foods.  Seriously.

FIOS 1 said:

East Setauket farmer, Bob Benner and his family have learned to live off their 15 acres of land since 1977.

“We learned, made, and had our own heat. We made our own food. We made our own clothing. We raised a garden,” he said.

With six mouths to feed on a tight budget, Benner began raising certain farm animals as a source of food.

Over the years, Benner’s farm has evolved into a popular attraction for strawberry picking, birthday parties, and class trips for kids. Which is how Kimberly Sherriton, a mother from Commack, got involved with a farm cow that she saw at a birthday party.

Sherriton became heartbroken when she heard that the 2-year-old cow will end up on the Benner’s family dinner table.

Benner says he does not want to sell the cow because his family can’t afford to buy that quality of food.

But Sherriton says he should buy the beef instead.

“He doesn’t need this cow to survive and feed his family. He puts a sob story on there. Please, tell him to go to Whole Foods and go get some anti-biotic free beef there,” she said (Emphasis added).

Does this moonbat not know where beef comes from?
