The world is in shock.
The masses are horrified.
Supermodels lead waves of international outrage.
Jimmy Kimmel chokes up on air at the mind-blowing ugliness and brutality of it all.
“A coward and a killer” sign is placed on the door of the healthcare business owned and operated by Walter Palmer, perpetrator of the repulsive act of extreme evil that has inspired the unhinged emotional reaction of a culture that simply cannot believe and will not tolerate such acts being committed here and now and in the enlightened twenty-first century.
Enough is enough!
This must end!
The carnage must stop!
So does Walter Palmer own and operate some sort of Planned Parenthood-ish business?
Has Walter Palmer had a personal hand in the mass murder and dismemberment of defenseless little human babies?
Has he played a role in carefully preserving the parts of little baby boys and girls while murdering them so that their body parts might be sold for profit? (See: Selling murdered baby parts in America? Sure. Why not?)
No, no, and no.
None of that is inspiring this outrage.
None of that really matter much.
The Kimmel choke-up, supermodel outrage, and mass hysteria on display is not the least little bit inspired by the ongoing systematic mass murder and dismemberment-for-profit of little baby boys and girls. The shock, horror, and ongoing public repudiation of Walter Palmer stems instead from his killing of…a lion.
A “protected” lion.
A lion with a name (Cecil).
Let me be clear that I am in no way here defending or excusing anything that Mr. Palmer has done. Not at all.
What I am hoping to highlight at least a little bit is the stark raving insanity of selectively applying this level of retributive outrage to one responsible for killing a lion while simultaneously barely seeming to notice, much less care about, the systematic mass murder of baby boys and girls all across America and the West in the name of “freedom”, “liberty”, and…get this…”human rights”.
Right about now, Planned Parenthood clinic owners and workers are well served to note one vital, inviolable “rule” of culture, and act accordingly: Never, ever, ever kill…a lion.
Especially a “protected” lion with a name.
Just don’t do it.
Little baby boys and girls, on the other hand?
Oh yeah, you can murder them by the millions.
They’re not protected at all. They’re fair game. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to murder children. Repent accordingly.)
And you can make a nice bit of cash on the side selling their body parts, too.
