Kendall Jones, 19, is a Texan cheerleader who sparked outrage on Facebook by posting pictures of herself with animals she hunted and killed in Africa.
She has responded to her online backlash, using President Teddy Roosevelt in her defense.
“He killed the same species that hunters now chase today under a mound of anti-hunting pressure,” she posted on her page. “Yet, how can it be possible that someone can love the earth, and take from the Earth in the name of conservation? For some folks, they’ll never understand.”
Kendall, don’t you realize that you capsize your own arguments by brazenly admitting that you are “looking to host a TV show.”
This is not my first rodeo with your kind. TV presenter, Melissa Bachman shares both your vanity and utter disregard for animals.
So far, nearly 300,000 people have signed a petition asking CEO Mark Zuckerberg to delete the Kendall Jones public figure page on Facebook because it “promotes animal cruelty.”
Might I respectfully ask all readers of this column to add their names to the petition?
I will leave it to the pro-hunt enthusiasts to massage the stats whichever way they wish.
There has been a long march not only through the institutions but through the minds of the young. When some young people want to praise themselves, they describe themselves as “non-judgmental.” For them, the highest form of morality is amorality.
I am afraid I don’t fit that age demographic. I am deeply judgemental – and unashamedly so – when it comes to the destruction of animals.
For crying out loud, Kendall, who believes you when you say that your hunts involve a “fair chase?” What is your idea of fair?
What nonsense to claim that “they take place in areas where animal populations sometimes have to be controlled.”
Who told you that lion and leopard populations have to be controlled? The PR your daddy must have employed?
Kendall, let us leave for a moment the world of statistics and get to the nettle that must be grasped.
What is it that makes a nineteen-year-old want to kill a noble creature?
No-one ever answers this question. Instead, I am machine-gunned with statistics and spurious claims that ‘it is good for the environment and conservation.’
Here we enter the realm of culture and ideas. (Which means you will need an interpreter, Kendall.)
Why would a healthy young woman, seemingly normal, be so lacking in empathy for animals?
According to psychiatrists, the people with no capacity for empathy are at best utter narcissists and at worst psychopaths.
Simon Baron-Cohen, a famous psychologist, says empathy has, or is caused by certain pathways in the brain, and that these may be defective for various reasons: genetic or environmental.
Whatever the cause, evil and lack of empathy are one and the same.
In Rwanda, for example, if accounts are to be believed, thousands of ordinary people, of no apparently psychopathic tendencies, took up their machetes and killed their neighbors, then enjoyed their goods and feasted on their food and celebrated what they had done.
It is said in some circumstances – fear, mass-hysteria or adrenaline-induced – some circuits in the brain overwhelm other circuits in the brain that are necessary for the expression of empathy.
According to David R Hawkins, the capacity to recognize and comprehend truth is concordant with the levels of consciousness as reflected not only the evolution of brain anatomy, but more importantly also, by changes in the physiognomy of the human brain and its patterns of processing information.
These, in turn, depend on underlying, unseen energy fields. In humans, critical and profound changes occur in the brain’s physiology and patterns of processing information at consciousness level 200.
Kineseological testing has shown that gratuitous trophy hunters calibrate extremely low. Their ‘intellect’ becomes primarily a tool of animal drives and primitive self-serving goals.
As the world grows more and more evil, so a bigger and bigger percentage of the population loses its capacity for empathy.
Emotionality is based on perception. Compassion is a result of discernment.
Kendall, I am afraid that I must rebuke you. Your actions are pure evil. The pictures of you dragging the corpse of a leopard are repulsive. Have I made myself quite clear?
Clearly you are hungry for your 15 minutes of fame.
I suggest you go about it the normal American way. Make a sex tape. Marry a basketball player for a few weeks. You could even become a weather girl on TV. You have the teeth.
