Libs Attack Supermodel for Loving Bacon, Learn They Picked Wrong Woman to Bully

Combined Shape

This just proves nobody’s all bad.

Model and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue veteran Chrissy Teigen might be a standard entertainment world liberal, with a record of criticizing President Donald Trump long before he was ever even considered a candidate for the presidency.

But there’s one issue where Teigen has taken a stand that even a master of Twitter like Trump would have to admire.

In one of those social media wars that could only consume liberals with too much time on their hands, and too high a regard for their own opinions, Teigen has been engaged in a fiery back and forth with vegetarian activists over the benefits of eating meat.

It’s even led the vegetarian side to stoop so low as to question Teigen’s qualifications for motherhood.

But the spouse of singing star John Legend gives back as good as she gets.

And then she hits back a little harder.

The dustup started when Teigen took lighthearted part in an online poll by Hempler Foods Group asking which kind of bacon consumers prefer:

Teigen’s answer was spot on.

For just about anyone, that would have been the end of the issue.

But vegetarians despise bacon, of course. And they certainly have no use for celebrities who enjoy it. (And let’s not discount the misogyny factor here. Liberals are harder on women who don’t toe the party line than conservatives ever would be.)

One whiner tweeted Teigen a picture of a slaughterhouse, with a plaintive note that said, “they’re better alive.”

Teigen’s response was pitch perfect: “I do not like eating them alive.”

Since radical vegetarians are not known for their sense of humor, the jab was not taken well at all. As the dispute continued, some of the combatants even went so far as to imply Teigen — who already has one toddler with another child due in June — wasn’t fit for motherhood.

Teigen, however, had several responses to that. One that was a little too racy for publication here, but another summed up the reaction most normal meat-eating humans have to the nagging superiority of the vegetarian leftists (and they’re almost always leftists).

She banged their moral pretensions …

… and slammed their sense of entitlement.

Should conservatives take Chrissy Tiegen's side in this fight?
So, a model like Teigen might not be the average conservative’s cup of tea, but the incipient fascism of radical vegetarians makes just about anyone standing up to them look like an ally to the right.

And if that ally can look as good as Chrissy Teigen does, the tent of conservative politics is big enough to make room for a while.

After all, nobody’s all bad.
