Perhaps, if you’re unlucky, you’re familiar with Matt Walsh ( themattwalshblog.com ),the controversial conservative blogger. He is staunchly pro-life. However, he and his wife have not adopted any of the children he professes to care so much about.
Instead, in his latest post, he chooses to criticize people disgusted by Kendall Jones, the Texas teenage beauty queen cheerleader who likes to sport hunt exotic animals and photograph herself with their dead bodies. His argument is that most of the people upset are raving liberals who care more about animals than people.
Bearing in mind that I may be doing nothing more than introducing his blog to more of an audience (not too likely, considering my low readership), I feel I must address his argument:
1. If someone (like me) is pro-choice and opposed to canned sport hunting (even if the animals are not endangered and the meat is given to locals), there is no hypocrisy there. If I saw that someone were hunting small children, I would likewise obviously be upset.
2. People are not animal lovers because, as he puts it, they don’t have to do anything. I volunteer plenty with the local shelter, cat TNR and on animal legal advocacy.
3. You’re welcome to express your opinion, but be honest that what you are doing is being purposely controversial to attract a bigger audience and more attention. Surely even you can’t be as big an asshole as you seem to be!
4. Finally, if pretty is as pretty does, then Kendall Jones is excruciatingly hideous!
That is all.
