Ever notice how not all leftists are animal rights activists, but most animal right activists are leftists? When Harambe the gorilla was killed, there was a pattern among the #JusticeForHarambe crowd. They were, in fact, mostly limp-wristed ninnies. They were also mostly SJWs (read Dear #JusticeForHarambe Morons: No, I Don’t Care About the Dead Gorilla). I know, I know. Liberals getting upset over something that doesn’t matter? Hardly news. Bear with me. It’s worth keeping in mind as we go over this story.
This 12-year-old hunter had a recent brush with raging leftist hellfire. Her crime? Posting photos from various hunts with her father…
A young girl and her father from Utah are experiencing a severe backlash online for posing with carcasses of wild animals they have hunted down and killed [in Africa].
While the Gourdins’ hunts may be legal… The pictures have incensed some people who are now attacking the teenager online for being an “animal hater” and “evil.” Others have made much more extreme remarks… even wishing that she comes to harm.
As mentioned earlier, leftists tend to champion animal rights (see Zimbabwe Sells Exotic Animals to Survive Drought… Leftists Freak). Why? Because they care about “protecting the innocent,” to hear them tell it. You know, the little guy. Speaking of innocent, it would follow that they feel equally passionate about protecting the littlest guy of them all – children. Right? …Right?
It’s looking like the answer is no. It seems that SJW compassion is directed only towards those with cloven hooves and furry backs. Hence Lena Dunham.
The 12-year-old hunter kept her cool, acknowledging the photos were “offensive to others.” Her response…
“We helped secure a healthier population for the future. The money spent will help conservation efforts and boost local economy. Just because someone chooses to display their “trophies” doesn’t make them a bad person. It represents memories. We hunters need to stand together no matter what we are hunting, as long as it is 100 percent legal,” Gourdin posted on her official Facebook page.
She makes a good point. Yes, it’s one thing to disagree with hunting for sport. It’s not for everyone. Being an animal lover who cringes at the sight of dead giraffes is perfectly understandable. Threatening a child for shooting a wildebeest? Not so much. As she mentioned, hunters play a big role in wildlife conservation. And the money they spend while in places like Africa? Serves as a huge boost to that local economy. Hunters do a lot more for nature than, say, angry keyboard smashing.
See, for people who claim to care, SJWs seem to do a lot of not caring. They don’t care about the facts, nor the safety of this girl. They’re moved to incite violence when murder takes place… But only the “murder” of animals. Clearly. Babies? Not so much. (Dear Liberals: If You Actually Cared About People, You Wouldn’t Be Liberal)
Animal rights activists, liberals, social justice warriors, vegans, whatever you call yourselves… This is why nobody likes you. Your crappy ideology holds no water. Want to be taken seriously? Maybe don’t throw public tantrums or morally crucify a kid for (legally) hunting, for starters. Until then…
Speaking of how liberals never think things through, here’s a video about Africa needing to “cull” the lion population after the Cecil backlash.
