Wealthy sociopaths need a way to vent frustration and overcompensate for less-than-desirable genitalia. Buying a Porsche used to do the trick. Not any longer. Now, killing majestic, endangered, bad ass looking prey is a fine way to make up for your “shortcomings.”
Poor Cecil, he was a magnificent beast: A mane to die for and all the lionesses he could ever want, but, some dickish dentist spent $50 grand to murk him—the details of which are so cowardly and one-sided, I won’t even mention them.
The past two nights, I’ve watched Sean Hannity go off on some weird tangent where he tries to tie the cases of Planned Parenthood sickos and the murder of Kate Steinle to Cecil the lion—his point is that of media coverage and outrage. Yeah, it’s sad that network news seemingly cares more about a dead animal than a (preventable) dead woman and the harvesting of partially-birthed babies’ internal organs, but I think it’s o.k. to be sorta pissed off about Cecil.
I keep hearing about what a bunch of hypocrites we are to bitch about Cecil, while we eat chicken fingers and hamburgers. Really? According to the USDA’s data, as of 2008, we eat about 9 billion chickens per year. I imagine the beef total to be less, but still significant. My point is, there are a lot of chickens and cows and there are not that many lions—especially in the wild. Anyways, no one eats lions.
(Other than Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe—who loves lion meat.)
This is why we don’t kill: bald eagles, giraffes, manatees, rhinos, elephants etc… Other than smug, self-satisfaction and brandy-night bragging, why would any normal person want to snuff out a beautiful creature? Kill deer; they’re everywhere and a danger to every driver in America.
Killing a lion is not a reason for social media to demand your head, but it is a reason to ask, “Why?” I think this dentist thought he was doing something legal, morally grey, but indeed, legal.
You really wanna hunt a lion? Hide in the savanna, armed with a knife, and fight that fucker one-on-one with the blade. I’ll laugh as the hyenas pick apart the meat left on your bones. Maybe your dick is too tiny for such a task… If so, I would suggest you stay home and perform root canals.
