- Is it possible that Our Betters didn’t know that hunting safaris were a thing?
- Did they not know that once guns, arrows and spears were the only things that were shot on these trips before the shooting was done by camera?
- Have they never heard the term “big game hunter” or wondered exactly what that meant?
- Do they not know that big game hunts are approved by several African countries that sell licenses to hunt the same way American states sell licenses to hunt bear, deer and ducks? In fact, your president might at this very moment be taking aim at a Kenyan teddy bear tied to a tree.
It is amazing to me that people on the internet seem to think that a tourist from the Midwest got the idea all on his own to pack up his bow and arrow and fly to Zimbabwe on the off chance that he would come across a lion to shoot and skin. If people have a philosophical argument about hunting in general, that’s fine but to act like this particular situation is new, unique and utterly heinous is jaw-dropping to me.
But the justice mob has taken to doing what they do best – damaging a single person‘s reputation by assigning their own definition of evil and ruining his livelihood to say nothing of his reputation and peace of mind. If fault lies anywhere, its not with the actual hunter who contracted with what he thought as a reputable and above board the tourist organization, but with that organization itself that failed to get the proper documentation and then resorted to luring the animal out of a safe, no-hunting space to create an easy target.In fact, the hunter seems to be a celebrity big game hunter with lots of experience with trips of this kind so it is beyond imagination that he would knowingly engage with illegal hunting arrangements.
But no. “Activitsts” like these pictured below have descended upon the dentist’s home and piled up Beanie Baby lions, Vermont Teddy Bears and a stuffed chimp or two in front of this home’s entrance. I guess that’s supposed to be a kinder gentler equivalent of the original mob’s practice of sending a dead fish to a target of retribution. Other activities as yet unexplained seem to be dramatic recreations of a lion hunt writ in Super Soaker water guns and oversized silicon sink strainers used as pith helmets.
Another thing to consider: is it possible that the White house has yet again ginned up a story for blanket coverage by the mass media as a smoke screen to hide whatever monkey business they are up to now? Last night, I heard Andy Cohen denounce the dentist in his charmingly named Jackhole Of the Day segment. Red flag! AC is wholly up the butt of Obama as is the third Musketeer in that chummy little group, SJP. I question the timing!
