#CecilTheLion Outrage Surpasses Planned Parenthood Video

#CecilTheLion Outrage Surpasses Planned Parenthood Video

Surely by now you have heard about the horrific video which details the killing and dismemberment of the most innocent life on the planet, have you not?

What do you mean, the third Planned Parenthood video? No, for the clueless at social media, the outrage is directed at the man who killed Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe.

Cecil the Lion.

#CecilTheLion is even trending on Twitter. No sign of Planned Parenthood on that list.

What happened to Cecil the Lion, is, indeed, pretty horrific, and most likely criminal. Apparently an American was found to have been the culprit, and he may have paid park rangers in Zimbabwe $50,000 to lure the 13-year-old lion out of Hwange National Park, where he roamed. The lion was a favorite of visitors to the park, was beloved by Zimbabweans, and died a torturous death.

Twitter erupted with calls for creative retribution against the hunter.

PETA called for the man’s hanging:

Actress Debra Messing wanted him stripped of his citizenship, to which another person asked her thoughts on Planned Parenthood. She didn’t respond.

Jill Filipovic, writer for The Guardian and blogger for the feminist blog Feministe, called for online shaming for the killing of Cecil.

But what’s this? Here’s a tweet that Filipovic wrote yesterday about how marvelously ‘life-saving’ it is to harvest and sell the parts of late-term aborted babies.

Conservative radio host and author Dana Loesch put the Cecil the Lion fuss into proper perspective with one very simple tweet:

Priorities, people. Priorities.

    Figures.

    More outrage and indignation expressed for a lion/father violently removed from being the protector of his progeny/pride than there is a for a human father or mother being violently deprived of the life of their child.

    Brings to mind the “Save the baby humans!” bumper stickers I’ve seen.
