• Rubio Puts Those Upset With ‘Cecil the Lion’ But Not ‘Planned Parenthood’ In Their Place

    Minnesota man Walter James Palmer paid $50,000 to visits a Zimbabwe conservation so he could hunt down and kill a lion.

    What Palmer claims he didn’t know was that the lion he killed was the world’s most famous cat, Cecil the Lion.

    “I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt,” Palmer said according to CBS News. “I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt. I deeply regret that my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion.”

    But by the time Palmer has apologized, it was already way too late. The negative reaction to Palmer’s killing of Cecil the Lion has even dwarfed the outrage over a series of videos showing Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the sell of fetal organs after the babies have been aborted.

    When asked about the “uproar” over Cecil, Florida Senator Marco Rubio said “people should be more fired up about those babies that are coming on those Planned Parenthood videos.”

    Rubio actually tweeted much the same sentiment a few days ago:

    “If people are going to be outraged by an animal being killed they should also be outraged about humans beings being killed, which we see we are seeing in those Planned Parenthood videos,” Rubio said.
