Breitbart.com’s Ben Shapiro Explodes With Stupidity Over Cecil the Lion
The headline says it all:
The article says more:
On Tuesday, the world lost its collective mind - whatever is left of it, anyway - when media discovered the identity of the killer of a Zimbabwean named Cecil. Cecil is a lion. Cecil, a lion, was by most accounts “one of Africa’s most famous lions.” Cecil, incredibly, was famous for being a lion, not for curing cancer, although you wouldn’t know that by the media coverage.
Authorities say that Palmer and his guides lured the lion out from the protected area deliberately in order to hunt it, then cut off its identifying tag. That’s gross.
The ridiculously disproportionate worldwide response is grosser.
Now I hope you all have your hands ready, because you’ll need them to stop your intestines from spilling out of you from laughter after you read this HILARIOUS zinger from Ben.
We eagerly await comment from President Obama, who will undoubtedly tell us that Cecil’s death moves us all and that if he had a lion king, it would have been Cecil.
Another example of fine cutting edge conservative humor.
But here is the crux of Shapiro’s column:
The American media have spilled copious amounts of ink and spent enormous amounts of bandwidth ginning up the mob over the death of Cecil, a lion. Meanwhile, the major media rush to ignore the fact that Democrats now force American taxpayers to foot the bill for hundreds of thousands of murders of babies by organizations including Planned Parenthood; the media believe that a dead lion ought to trump Planned Parenthood carving up murdered babies to sell their body parts, Mengele-style. Celebrities who weep over Cecil, a lion, cheer when women across the United States decide to suck their baby’s brains into a sink so that Planned Parenthood can distribute its kidneys for purposes of research.
The same celebrity class lamenting the death of Cecil, a lion, now stand alongside their beloved President Obama as he facilitates the deaths of thousands of Arabs and Jews in the Middle East by funding the leading terror regime on the planet, Iran, and paves the way for a consequence-free Iranian bomb, presumably to be used in the genocide of some six million Jews. Obama has presided over the rise of ISIS, which hacks the heads off of babies, and the left have nothing to say about it. Boko Haram continues to abduct children for sex slavery and murder, and the White House continues to hashtag about it - no comment.
Cecil was 13 years old. So too was Anthony Diaz, killed in gang warfare in Chicago in February. You haven’t heard Anthony Diaz’s name, because he was a Hispanic kid killed for posting on Facebook. He wasn’t a lion. Neither are the seven people murdered in Chicago last weekend. Neither are the people who will be targeted in Los Angeles in a gang contest in which members seek to target 100 innocents for death in 100 days. And neither are people like Steinle, who will be victimized by illegal immigrants while the federal government seeks to stop anyone who wants to enforce immigration law.
But never mind. A nasty guy killed a lion 9,000 miles away. By all means, let’s go nuts. After all, it makes the left feel good to weep ceaselessly over the illegal poaching of anthropomorphized wild beasts even as they facilitate evil against actual human beings all over the planet, including right here in the United States.
The Planned Parenthood story deserves to be ignored, Ben, because it is false, and all the Godwinning in the world won’t make it true. The rest of your examples are just more conservative whining.
