“Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they’re in the game.” – Paul Rodriguez
Let me make this disclaimer, I am not a hunter or a gun owner. I abhor the sport of killing animals so that their heads can be mounted on walls.
These are Donald Trump’s sons:
I am sorry, but no matter what I think about their father these pictures, those smiles, and the death of these two majestic animals for the “joy” of killing them, makes me think even less of our Presidents sons if that is possible.
So let me answer the “Basket of Deplorables” question, yes, I eat cows, pigs, and chickens. And why is that different? If you can even remotely compare the BBQ chicken wings that I buy at the grocery and cook on my grill to the dead Cheetah that the Trump boys are hugging you are not only an idiot but a moron as well and as Mark Twain said I “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”
I understand deer hunting, you mount the head if you find it “worthy” of mounting, but you eat the meat. I get it. I wouldn’t do it because I think deer are beautiful creatures and I don’t like the way they taste, but The Trump boys aren’t going to eat the Waterbuck or the Cheetah they have killed and so proudly display. They are going to post the pictures on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, have the heads cutoff and mount them in their “man caves”. It is a male thing, a “big dick” thing whether you got one or not. At the very least it creates the illusion of a “big dick” I guess.
In my community I know three “Big Game” hunters and all three fit the same profile. All three are little guys in stature, all three are very petty, quick to anger, and all three are absolute assholes. Now I realize my sample size is pretty small, but think about it, what kind of thrill would you get from killing an Elephant, a Lion, a Waterbuck or a Cheetah? Is it a sense of power? Or maybe control? What exactly is the thrill you are searching for that couldn’t be substituted with a camera?
I look at the pictures of these two dick heads and it just breaks my heart (these two ass-wipes are serial “killers”, google “trump sons hunting” for many more pictures of their “conquest”). Never mind the thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands they have spent to garner these “trophies”. Never mind that they have no intention of grilling Waterbuck steaks or Cheetah fillets. They killed two defenseless creatures for the sheer sport of it. Two creatures that didn’t deserve to die. If you really wanted to make it contest, a fair fight, give the Trump boys a rock and a stick to take the Cheetah down. If they were to win that battle then by all means mount your trophy proudly. My money though would be on the Cheetah.
“Killing animals for sport, for pleasure, for adventure, and for hides and furs is a phenomena which is at once disgusting and distressing. There is no justification in indulging is such acts of brutality.” – His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
