With his country burning around him, a mass gang-rape epidemic in which tens of thousands of young British girls have been horrifyingly betrayed, and civil war reaching up to ensnare his country and others, Prince William has stood up to make an courageous and impassioned stand in favor of… trophy hunting.
From Breitbart London:
Prince William has bravely come out in defence of trophy hunting.
‘There is a place for commercial hunting in Africa as there is round the world,’ although he conceded: ‘It’s not everyone’s cup of tea.’
For this the heir to the British throne has inevitably been pilloried by the usual suspects.
The UK-based charity Lion Aid was among those leading the criticism, describing William’s comments as a “sad day”.
It added in a statement: “With likely less than 15,000 wild lions left in Africa, there is no place for commercial hunting of lions. With an estimated 1,500 wild male lions in existence and with current ‘offtake’ for trophy hunting of 300 per annum, continued trophy hunting cannot be deemed as sustainable.
But it’s the Prince who is talking sense on this occasion, not this two-bit animal charity. William has been getting an awful lot of stick, of late, in the UK media which has accused him of ducking his royal duties and being lazy. Under the circumstances, it would have been quite understandable if he’d taken the easy, populist line, rode the wave of post-Cecil-the-Lion hysteria and pretended to be frightfully upset by the idea of any big game being shot for pleasure ever again in Africa.
He didn’t take the coward’s way out, though. Instead William spoke the truth.
I am honestly surprised Breitbart didn’t point out the obvious on this one, that it might be far more appropriate for the Prince to “speak the truth” about the rape, murder, and enslavement of his country.
