The scary bit is their idea of “national unity” seems to mean we must all have the same “values” of the fundamentalists of one faith.

Between this and spending the last 24 hours arguing over the 19 year old sociopathic attention whore who likes the spend her daddy’s money killing species already sliding toward extinction* this is one of those days I have little faith in the human race. I’m going to go back and watch the Pallas Cat again.
*And I will explain why the whole, “Tourists killing animals helps them” rationalization does not work later. Main reason? Poaching is still out of control and populations are still in decline. Some of the species she has hunted are in free fall. Private hunting reserves are providing no more protection from poaching than the parks are. “Legal” hunting does not stop poaching. Period. Hunting just adds to the population decline. If someone cares about conservation, they should donate the exorbitant costs for these hunting trips (tags for hunting elephant and rhino usually cost tens of thousands of dollars, hence the poaching) to the parks so they can hire and train more staff to hunt poachers, and push for stronger sentences for poaching in those countries.
