Why do v*gans assume that all primal/paleo folk just eat red meat?

It has started to bug the shit out of me, is it a kind if defense mechanism maybe? ive seen it on youtube a few times in the past.."Yeah you carry on eating dead animal & die in your forties" "meat is full of this & that"...meat rots away inside you" blah..blah..blah....i mean do these plant murdering food-nazis ever stop to think that, as well as animals we too eat fruit/veg/nuts etc. This is a real question btw, i just want to understand why they think of us in this way, so if any ex-vegans could shed some light on this matter i would be grateful! thank you.

Im not religious so i'll never experience it from that side...I do know where you are coming from though eddieosh, i know two wrongs don't make a right. I tried to have a nice conversation with one or two of them, i didn't put vegan down at all, but rather pointed out my personal positives regarding going primal. I was very respectful toward them & told them i admired their moral stance on the whole meat thing. I got met with ridicule & the slating of Mark Sisson who i mentioned & gave thanks to for making such a difference in my life.

Because it's a religion for some of them and the first casualty of a crusade is respectful, objective dialogue?

hahaha...i hear ya borofergie, i would honestly eat a leg of lamb for breakfast! i do eat plenty of veg, eggs & herbs myself just for a more broad nutritional intake, I suppose i could have put my question better by asking "why do v*gans think we only eat red meat & will die from doing so"

For the two obese vegans in my family, a diet of lettuce and tofu would be an improvement.

Because it fits into their do-gooder narrative, and because it's much easier to fight against straw-men than real people. Vegans love to think of themselves as more spiritually evolved than the rest of us. If they can paint paleo/primal people as being knuckle dragging savages with meat stuck between their teeth and grease running down their chin, and themselves as sophisticated beings that overcome their animal instincts to live a more harmonious and peaceful lifestyle than they just won a significant p.r. victory.

(most) Vegans (in my experience) choose their diet for moral reasons

We choose our Paleo diet for health reasons.

They were on a high-horse to start with and just like to stay on that same horse by cutting down our horse.

Probably the same reason people think vegans only eat lettuce and tofu.
