Lefties Think They Have Finally Found the Moral High Ground With Cecil the Lion

Morally bankrupt liberals finally have something to feel morally righteous about. An American dentist named Walter Palmer took down a ferocious beast with a bow and arrow on a safari.

Actress Debra Messing shrieks that Dr. Palmer should have his citizenship revoked.

Antigun fanatic Piers Morgan wants him hunted down and killed, and his head mounted on a wall.

Outraged journalists have finally recovered the reporting skills that have atrophied under Democrat rule. With a completely straight face, The Hill shouts out the astounding revelation that like countless thousands of others, Palmer donated to Mitt Romney. Romney has now been implicated in the gunning down of an African. Good thing the media warned the herd away from voting for him.

The lion was bested in Zimbabwe, which is ruled by Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe. At his recent 91st birthday bash earlier this year, Mugabe chowed down on baby elephant. But Mugabe denounces white safaris, so he’s okay.

This gives an idea of the moral perspective of the liberal establishment media:

America’s anchors have spoken: the shooting of one lion vastly outweighs the trafficking of baby parts by a taxpayer-funded abortion giant.

In other words, the broadcast news shows spent more time in one day on Cecil the Lion than they did on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks.

The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting aborted baby parts — censored it at Planned Parenthood’s urging. But the news shows did find more than 14 minutes for a more important story: the “outrage” over the shooting of Cecil, a famed African lion, by an American dentist.

Tuesday, the networks spent 5 minutes, 44 seconds during their evening news shows on Cecil — and that’s not even counting the teasers. Wednesday morning, ABC, NBC and CBS lamented over the lion for 8 minutes, 17 seconds.

But they couldn’t do the same for a story of babies “picked” apart by tweezers.

To care more about animals than about humans is the mark of true depravity.
