Skip to comments.Chile: 17 Year Old Girl Protesting Animal Cruelty At Rodeo Is Roped, Dragged Like Animal
Posted on 09/24/2010 3:21:28 AM PDT by lbryce
A 17-year-old kid (or "woman", as the press prefers to call it) is lassoed and dragged by a horseman after she and other animal rights activists entered a corral to protest against the rodeo. According to the news article linked here, the Chilean Rodeo Federation's director "regretted what happened, but at the same time justified the attitude of the riders".
News report at El Mercurio, a Spanish-language newspaper in Chile, and here is the YouTube video link. Her name is Constance. From the YouTube description: the incident occurred on September 19, during the "Patriotic Celebration Festival" at the National Stadium. The video shows three young people entering the corral to peacefully protest animal abuse by the rodeo; then we see riders on horseback and rodeo men on foot lassoing one female protester later identified as a 17-year-old child.

As you view the video and observe that the activist is none-the-worse for the manner in which she was roped, dragged (like an animal, no less!!) all of which is much ado about nothing, you get to see the modus operandi for the way the left-wing, liberal mindset gets all bent out of shape in paroxysms of high-minded histrionic overkill.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Good thing she didn’t protest a bullfight.
Seems to me it was a very humane way to get her carcass out of the arena....Funny actually...
NOthing here....move on...
Them Chilean red-necks take their rodeos seriously!
Agreed. The lassoed chick’s friend did more harm by trying to pull on the rope, thus making her fall. Let’s face facts—liberals are dumb.
Ride ‘em, cowboy!
Anybody see Hannity last night. He had his award winning $1000 bet that would go to their favority charity.
Hannity said his would go to charity for veterens and families (I believe I heard correctly), the lib replied quickly, here’s was
“Save the Polar Bears”
????????????? Excuse me, but have we ordered a wholesale killing of polar bears? The only people killing the polar bears routinely are Eskimos, no?
What’s funny is, I don’t know this lady...but we can bet that along with wanting to save the polar bears.... she also:
1. Believes in abortion on demand...
2. Went to a private school..where her kids go too
3. Votes straight democrat tick in every single race...
4. Against the good war, before she was for it...
5. And will never admit that Obama, REid, Pelosi etc were anything but the best things that’s happened to this country...
Maybe they can make this a regular feature of the Rodeo? :-)
Haven’t had my coffee yet...
Award winning panel....I mean’t to say, and “her” choice was Save the Polar Bears....
In an interview later, the roper was quoted as saying:
I thought she was purdy, and that’s how paw got maw.
hahahahahahaaa. Yeah the “lib lassoo”
Looked more like a bunch a cowboys on a cattle drive, trying to separate out a few stray cows...
Some pretty funny people are up this early usually....
He simply removed her from the ring where she was interfering. The animal rights wackos are out of control. In fact, the entire world seems to be out of control these days.
“we see riders on horseback and rodeo men on foot lassoing one female”
And I thought I had a hard time getting dates.
Another liberal learns the meaning of “Macho”
There is something to be said for diversity
LOL! This is absolutely hilarious! Thanks very much for posting it. A image is indeed worth a thousand words!
