Cecil the Lion, the Media, and the Liberal Mob

This Cecil the Lion hype is really getting scary. Big game hunting has been a favorite human pastime since caveman days. Now suddenly it is a big enough sin to easily overshadow Planned Parenthood carving up live babies and selling their body parts.

Has-been actress turned fulltime moonbat Mia Farrow doxxed Walter Palmer in evident hopes that he would be killed by some animal rights fanatic, disturbing even the leftists at Salon. PETA literally wants him hanged for bowhunting.

The poor guy is being investigated by the federal government, for crying out loud. Exploiting the hubbub for propaganda purposes, Zimbabwe (whose dictator eats baby elephants) is calling for extradition β€” to a country where whites are far more endangered than lions. Moonbats have been laying siege to his Minneapolis area dental office, demanding that he be sacrificed to the maniacal regime in Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, back in reality, American tourists kill more than 380 lions in Africa every year. The supposedly heartbroken people of Zimbabwe are asking, what lion?

The story is completely contrived, displaying the media’s new favorite tactic of taking an everyday incident and hyping it into the story of the century in order to drive the liberal agenda. The most obvious example of this is the sociopathic black hoodlum who manages to get himself killed by the police β€” an event so commonplace that it barely warrants local media coverage, but that is now used to stampede the herd to trample concepts like rule of law and local policing.

Like many of the police officers who have stood in for Emmanuel Goldstein during the liberal media’s never-ending Two Minutes Hate, Palmer may not have been aware of doing anything wrong. He took the lion on private land. It is alleged that it was lured there from a national park. Whether this is even true and whether Palmer knew about it remain to be determined.

But of course the crime he is hated for is not violating some technicality but killing a lion. This was never wrong before, but suddenly now it is, just like a couple of years ago even Obama agreed that the concept of homosexual marriage was wrong, and now suddenly it could end your career not to agree that it is right.

This isn’t about some dangerous beast on the other side of the planet. The social engineers inciting the lynch mob have set their sights on hunting. Once it has been eradicated, from their point of view, we will have no excuse to own guns. Disarming us is a prerequisite for the absolute control required to impose their notion of utopia.

In the meantime, now that big game hunting has been targeted, you might want to stock up on the works of enthusiastic big game hunter Ernest Hemingway. His books may soon go the way of Dukes of Hazzard reruns.

    I gave up on the media long ago. What they put forth as news these days would have gotten people an F- in schools back in sane times. Being in Minnesotastan I get a double helping of the hype-local as well as national. This guy is done here-history’s greatest monster of the moment (as deemed by The Destroyer controlled media) will have to pull teeth somewhere else because as we now know all too well Lion Lives Matter.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with that hoax a few months back where the lefty animal-lovers fell for a photoshop that purported to be “the last lion in Afghanistan (yes I know) ..killed by US troops” (of course). They left was made to look the fool (not hard to do ..but still) . It’s almost as though they’ve had a search out for a lion killed by an American “white” guy so they can redeem themselves.

    This media uproar has really left me gobsmacked. Don’t these people understand that hunting is the reason there are lions in vast numbers left in Africa. Its driven by commercial reasons , people pay big money for hunting. Because of low very poor returns and stock theft a lot of farmers in South Africa converted to game farming as it is more profitable and less dangerous than if you farmed cows or sheep. Supply and demand, if hunting is stopped and people only visit the farms for looking at the animals and relaxing etc, they would drop by half overnight. Seriously why do Americans always have to have a emotional feel good outlook on life. No bad things only what makes things nice. Life unfortunately doesn’t work like that. Hollywood and Disney exists in theaters not the real world. Their good intentions now is going to properly kill off the rest of the lions left as they would have no commercial value. Obviously over many years. If things have no direct impact on you, your view should be what it is, an opinion.

    It’s one thing to hunt and kill animals LEGALLY, it’s another thing to break laws and kill protected animals. This “poor guy”, who paid thousands and thousands to kill a lion and hang its head on his wall, is not above the law. I wonder how much good those dollars might have done if donated to the cause of fighting abortion, euthanasia and other right to life causes.
    Why don’t you jump on the liberal media? They’re the ones responsible for the unbalanced coverage. There are plenty people working hard every day for very serious causes, we just don’t get the same coverage. Your outrage is misguided on this one.

  51. Denise says:

    My point, further above, is that you don’t know that these people who are outraged at this ILLEGAL killing of the protected lion may very well be just as outraged at the horrible killing of unborn babies, etc. Just because THE MEDIA only covers these events DOES NOT mean that there isn’t just as much activity for far more important causes – THEY JUST AREN”T COVERED!!!!!

  52. Denise says:

    My point is that you don’t know that these same people who are outraged at this ILLEGAL killing of the protected lion may very well be even more outraged at the horrible killing of unborn babies, etc. and fight even harder against these activities. THEY JUST AREN”T COVERED when doing so!!!!! You can beg the media to cover bigger, more important events and they want no part of it. And I’m speaking from personal experience.

    No, its all very simple. they needed something to take the air out of the Planned Parenthood videos.

    So they invented this supposed outrage, which no sane human being shares, over the killing of a lion.

    It goes to show their deeply evil mentality. Killing babies and selling their body parts is good, and hunting a lion is a crime against humanity.

    Your ignorance is profound. If you had bothered to gather the most simple facts about this matter, you would know that he paid his guides 55,000 dollars to procure all necessary permits and make sure the whole thing was legal. If you are planning on doing an illegal hunt, you certainly do not pay someone that kind of money. Furthermore, he shot the lion with a bow and arrow. To do that you have to get within about forty yards of the Lion, and you put yourself in great danger.

    You criticize the doctor for spending money on a lion hunt. Did you spend money on a vacation this past year or two? Own any “toys?” 10% gross of your income go to the church?

    This story is ironic in a way: infanticide happens in the pride when a new male takes over. Maybe they wanted to redirect the baby killing focus from one thing to another.

    Really this story is stupid and the people calling for the lynching of the dentist deserve to have a lion sent on them. Nature isn’t nearly as forgiving as people act like it is and Cecil probably would’ve been seriously wounded/killed by some other lion given his age. We’ll ignore the fact that apparently 99% of everything that has ever existed on this planet is already extinct as well; it’s stupid.

    Cecil’s cubs apparently haven’t been murdered, so the impact of his death is minimal. I’m sure researches and tourists can find another lion willing to let them within like two feet of it. Seriously, if it’s that big a deal just fine the guy and take back the head trophy. There are more important things to worry about.

    This animal would not be protected under normal circumstances, if it
    wandered on to private land. It only has protection in the park. As much as I would like to believe otherwise, even if he didn’t know beforehand, when they wanted to destroy the transmitter, he should have thought there was something wrong. Unfortunately, you have to rely on those with the license, that you have employed to make sure you don’t break any laws and keep you out of trouble. I’m pretty sure he didn’t even speak the language!
    Most Hunters would not be proud to take an animal unethically, and certainly wouldn’t pay 50K to get themselves in trouble. I don’t know if it stems from a lack of proper permitting or that they went into the park to lure the lion in the first place. There is only a barbed wire fence to let you know where the boundaries are. It hardly keeps animals in there. Without a lot more information anything is just speculation.

    A better point to be made is that we are the reluctant stewards for both animals and the unborn, and that as such we, as better men, have great responsibility in securing both of them from pathological and wanton destruction.
