Walter J Palmer of Minnesota, the sadistic serial animal-murderer of Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe, has gotten away yet again with his Crime, as the government of Fascist Dictator Robert Mugabe, which makes a fortune off of letting the country’s animals be butchered for money, said Palmer had done nothing illegal.
If you had a pet cat for thirteen years and somebody shot an arrow into its hip, pursued the suffering animal for 40 hours, and then shot it so that it slowly died, while filming the blood slowing oozing from the mouth of your dying pet — what punishment would you decree for such a person, and what punishment would you decree for a government that says it would be legal? Whatever punishment you’d decree for someone who did that to your pet, that is what Walter J Palmer deserves.
Palmer and his fellow sadistic trophy hunters are the scum of the Human Race. These Human Vermin are a curse on the planet that must be expunged by making hunting illegal, and then jailing the Criminals for Life, or executing them. Since I’m opposed to Capital Punishment, I’d favor the cages.
But equally guilty with Walter J Palmer is Fascist Dictator, Torturer, and Murderer, Robert Mugabe, and the other national governments of the world that permit trophy hunting, or any kind of hunting. Nor is the problem just hunting, but the cruel, sadistic way in which human beings treat animals all over the world.
So it is not only Walter J Palmer who is guilty, although he is the most immediate sadist and the one who has committed these atrocities. Merely because these murderers hide behind the diaphanous skirts of immoral “laws”, it does not make their actions moral. Trophy Hunters, and all hunters, are Nazis to the animals.
But to put the guilt solely on Palmer is to exonerate all the other animal abusers in society, many of them who could not even bring themselves to strike an animal. These are all the meat eaters who put animals through a living hell from the moment they’re born to the moment of their violent murders. Slaughter houses are nothing but mass animal-child murder centers, and they exist throughout the world by the hundreds of thousands, and 98% of the Human Beings don’t say a word against it, or even think about their part in paying to have animals murdered so they can eat their carcasses. They are just as guilty as Palmer.
And then there are the vivisectionists, keeping monkeys in cages for years, torturing them in useless but highly profitable (for them) experiments, and torturing countless mice, rats, cats, dogs, and every kind of primate.
Add to that the zoos, marine parks, dolphin murdering Japan, whale-murdering Japan, whale-murdering Norway and Iceland, American rodeos, horse-racing, the beagle torture facilities in England,the bear-baiters of Pakistan and Afghanistan, and all the single raisers of pigs, goats, sheep, lambs, who murder them themselves on “family” farms throughout the world, the South Korean dogmeat market, where dogs are blow-torched to death to “improve the flavor”, the Chinese Dog-meat festival, where 10,000 dogs were murdered and eaten within three days, fox hunting in both Irelands, and bull fighting in “civilized” France and Spain… this is the record of Man’s depravity in the current “civilized world”.
But there is a counter-wave. In Tel-Aviv last week occurred the largest Animal Welfare demonstration in Israeli history, when an estimated 10,000 marched against animal murder and torture. Last year the number was 5,000. Five years ago it was 50, showing that a dedicated minority can spread Truth as fast as Sam Adams’ “Brushfires of Liberty”.
And each person can do their part by becoming vegan, agitating to outlaw hunting, running for office on an Animal Welfare platform, voting against politicians who are indifferent to, or support, vivisection and hunting, boycotting hunter’s businesses and avoiding any social contact with them, protesting at circuses, and passing legislation outlawing zoos, rodeos, etc. There is a vast amount that can be done.
But the Criminal and Human Garbage, Walter J Palmer of Minnesota will walk free, and live to sadistically murder again, and Robert Mugabe will continue to rake in the dollars in the Zimbabwean hell he has created, because the publics of America, the U.K. Ireland, and Europe will say nothing, and continue to vote in politicians indifferent to animal sadism like Barack Obama, David Cameron, and Angela Merkel.
But in the minds of millions in the Court of Public Opinion, the murderers and their enablers will be adjudged “Guilty!”.
As far as Walter J Palmer of MN and the other trophy hunters of the Earth, bringing their horror and misery to every corner of God’s Creation, I wish them as horrible a death as Cecil experienced. They are the dripping anus of the Human Race.
