Badger Parade!Posted: June 4, 2013
This is why I love the English. Only those wacky Brits could turn an animal’s rights protest into a dramatic spectacle that ended with ladies chasing far-right extremists away from a hate rally. While dressed as badgers.
The badger brigade (led, oddly enough, by the guitarist from Queen) crashed a political clash between the right-wing British National Party (BNP) and left-wing groups such as Hope Not Hate to protest a government-sponsored cull on badgers. The costumed gatecrashers completely took over the rally, and ended up chasing the right-wing protesters away, leaving one right-wing asshat with a bloody nose. All while — and I cannot stress this point enough — dressed as freaking BADGERS.
Simultaneously routing evil, protecting wildlife, and dressing up in provocative badger costumes. Multi-tasking, bitches!
