While Bernie Sanders was speaking at a rally in Nevada, those watching the live feed saw a woman storm the stage and seize the microphone from his hands. She turned out to be an activist from Direct Action Everywhere, an animal liberation movement.
After castigating Bernie for daring to support those American farmers who raise animals for milk and meat, the live feed cut off. That’s a shame because it was when the video cameras were gone that the fun really started.
What you see watching the video is a young woman with long black hair and scarlet lipstick jumping up from the crowd and wresting the microphone from Bernie’s unwilling hands as he repeatedly tries to tug it back. Eventually, a frail old man undone by her youthful animal strength, Bernie stalks off in high dudgeon. In the meantime, the woman has the stage.
“Bernie,” she says, “I’m your biggest supporter and I’m here to ask you to stop propping up the dairy industry and to stop propping up animal agriculture. I believe in you….”
And then the mic is cut off. Strong men come on stage and the woman vanishes. As they deal with the woman, though, the real fun begins. Suddenly, several women appear on the stage, including one who is nude from the waist up. The women unfurl banners, one of which reads “let dairy die.” And then the video feed ends.
The Daily Mail describes what happened next:
[Topless women mounted the stage and poured colored liquids over their bodies from containers marked ‘milk.’
They had the words ‘dairy’ and ‘die’ written across their nude torsos, with their bosoms fully displayed.
Sanders and his wife, Jane, stepped off to the side of the stage as the women carried on.
