#CatLivesMatter: Shameless Pandering over Cecil the Lion


Zimbabweans feel somewhat bemused by the attention the world is giving to the killing of a lion:
The lion's death has not registered much with the locals - and for most Zimbabweans the name is more associated with the British imperialist diamond digger Cecil John Rhodes, serving as a reminder that the country once bore the name Rhodesia. 
Indeed for the Zimbabwe press this explains "the saturation coverage on the demise of his namesake", and they have been reminding us that tourism and hunting are "mired in elitism".

Instapundit: Dems try to draft Joe Biden, Hillary is a 1%er Candidate, Hillary tried to hide her $600 haircut, the movie Hillary should be worried about, and is labor pulling out of Hillary and will the main debate be a circus? (I think not, but the second debate matters to me just as much)

  1. If Bongo Bobby Mugabe doesn't care, how can the Lefties diss the world's last true Stalinist?

    (or is he actually a Maoist?)

    "The lion's death has not registered much with the locals - and for most Zimbabweans the name is more associated with the British imperialist diamond digger Cecil John Rhodes, serving as a reminder that the country once bore the name Rhodesia. "

    They were better off when it was Rhodesia.
