Royal Hypocrisy

On recent events, several royals have been involved in consevational events. Prince William, in China for in his quest for prevent the death of elephants (issue that he also does in Africa) and Harry in something regarding some sort of squirrel.

Ain’t that rich?

But, Visenya, why? Simple, they both engage in the hunting sport (along several members of the British Royal Family*). Oh sure, they hunt pheasant and wild boar… those aren’t in danger. But the fact remains that they are speaking from two sides of their mouths here; if you actually want me to take your work seriously, at least in regards of conservation and prevention of the extinction of wild and endangered animal, stop hunting altogether. No ifs, ands or buts.

So in the meantime, while we wait that this message deigns to cross their heads, we’ll have to content ourself with watching a royal hypocrisy.

*A while ago the Earl of Wessex was caught on a scandal involving a badly angled photo (at least I hope it was a badly angled photo!) that gave the impression that he was shooting from inches up his son’s head.

What can I say? I am a mixed bag of everything, sprinkled with a tad of humor and a bit of fire and blood.

    I’ve always felt they were talking out of both sides of their mouths with regards to conservation. If you’re going to preach to people not to kill animals, you can’t just pick and choose which animals. It’s an all or nothing thing and you can’t be out there killing things because it’s a family tradition and it’s fun. You’re not sending the right message.

    • And the chorus went: Amen. Seriously, if you want me to take you seriously, stop hunting altogether.

      It’s just rich because they want to have their cake and eat it too. And it’s a double standard too, why is it ok to kill some animal and not the other?

      Nope, just stop hunting, period.
