Donald Trump Jr. Shoots Elephants: Incendiary Image of the Day

Donald Trump Jr. (courtesy Facebook)

The above photo’s making the rounds on Facebook. Donald Trump Jr.’s holding a severed elephant tail. I don’t want to lower myself to the level of the “discourse” The Donald displayed at last night’s presidential debate so I won’t say anything about anyone’s hands/penis size, or being surprised to see a picture of Jr. in the daylight. I will say this: many gun owners are reassured by Jr.’s love of firearms freedom. Jr.’s definitely a “gun guy.” By relying on the son to stop the sins of the father, though, is a bad bet. With Trump, everything’s negotiable, even your gun rights. Agreed?

    I’m voting for whoever ain’t hildabeast or the bern. If that’s trump, so be it.

      This. But I’m still hoping for Ted.

      1. avatar Bob says:

        This. Prefer Ted,
        But in the end anyone but a D. The other candidate can have sex with sheep on live tv and I’d still vote for them over the dem.

        1. avatar Indiana Tom says:

          The RNC would love that.

      2. avatar David P. says:

        I’m with you Matt in Maine. Ted is my guy in the primary. If he doesn’t make it through then I will look to see who is the best choice in the general. Score of 0-10 Hillary is a -16 soooo that makes the choice pretty easy.

        Not voting at all is like buying a gun for self defense. Sure I would love to have a Dillion 134 minigun but when push comes to shove and I meet a coked out thug in a back alley I will be glad to have my Glock vs waiting for my Dillion to arrive.

      3. avatar Ben says:

        I hope for our sake it is Ted. The guy has class, a track record to be proud of and is a consititionalist.

        The same can’t be said about Trump. His obnoxious attitude is genuinly starting to be nausiating as well.

    2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      Bingo.
      And for those who won’t vote if ts “X”, that’s a half a vote for the other side.

      1. avatar On the can says:

        The amount of people that don’t vote and incessantly bitch is mind boggling.

        1. avatar Bob321 says:

          This is a winner take all election. If the Democrat Party wins, they will win control over the country for at least a generation. So, if you think not voting will send some message to the world that you are pissed at the establishment so that you can change how they think, you haven’t thought this through.

      2. avatar Cliff H says:

        Mathematically, if you do not vote at all or if you waste your vote on a candidate that has zero chance of winning then you have increased the vote count of the person you like the least by exactly one. Not one half.

        Whenever the RINOs giver me a nose-holder for POTUS I prefer to think of the Dem I dislike the most (Harry Ried this year) and then I go to the polls with the idea that even if Ted doesn’t win I have PERSONALLY cancelled out Harry’s vote.

        1. avatar int19h says:

          This math applies within one electoral cycle. But long term, if you keep “holding your nose” and voting for whatever they give you just so that the other guy doesn’t win, you’ll keep getting a turd. Why would they change anything, if you have already proven so many times that you’ll vote for a turd anyway?

          A vote for a third party is “wasted” in that particular election, but it sends a message to the party that assumed it would have got it that they need to fix their shit. One vote isn’t much of a message, which is why the “you’re throwing it away” line is such potent propaganda – because it’s true, so long as too few people keep doing it. The trap is that this is recursive – voting third party is throwing your vote away only until enough people start doing so that it affects either one of the big parties (who assumed that those votes are theirs) enough to cause them to lose. One loss is still not enough of a message, but enough of them, and a sustained rise in popularity of third parties, would inevitably lead to changes – either because the party will pay attention, or because the most popular third party will take over.

        2. avatar Accur81 says:

          That attitude has cost gun owners dearly over the decades. Of course a single vote, statistically, is not significant. But when large swaths of gun owners stay away from the polls, gun rights are usurped by the politicians who do get voted in. CA has roughly 9 million gun owners, and every one of them should vote. Few do. Elections have consequences. In 2016, the upcoming POTUS may be able to make 3 SCOTUS selections (obviously with congressional approval). One additional liberal supreme court judge could cripple not just the 2nd, but the 1st, 4th and 5th Amendments as well.

      3. avatar Owen says:

        +1 to this. In this presidential race it’s simple as ABC = Anyone But Clinton.

        Trump is not perfect but if he gets people out to vote ABC I am fine with that,

    3. avatar Bob in MI says:

      If it is not Cruz, I’m voting third party. I refuse to give tacit approval to a broken two party system. If more patriots would rise up and do the same thing we would have a chance at taking this country back from the Csuckers in washington.

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        “If it is not Cruz, I’m voting third party. I refuse to give tacit approval to a broken two party system.”

        Just don’t vote. Please.

        I feel you pain. Seriously.

        Voting third party, however, will not get you candidate elected, and you will succeed in providing direct help to the enemy.

        Don’t stab other POTG in the back.

        Just please don’t vote at all…

        1. avatar Bob in MI says:

          That makes no sense. How would voting for a pro gun rights libertarian/independent be an issue. I’m so sick of both of these Effing parties and the people that follow them. At this point I’ll quote Steve Rinella “I’m a political eunich”. The Dem’s wanna take guns. The republicans want to take your land. There is no place in this election for someone who is Pro gun, pro public land, pro fiscal conservatism, pro legalization of marijuana and pro gay rights. The whole thing is a big giant circus where common sense has no place anymore and those of you who vote for a letter are sheep.

        2. avatar Geoff PR says:

          *Every* protest vote like that is effectively a free vote for the opposition.

          That’s how Bill Clinton was elected, all those ‘protest’ Perot votes.

        3. avatar Jason says:

          3 percent is all a minor party needs to have primary access in many states. According to Gallup 52.1 percent of people polled said there needs to be a third party. According to your logic a vote for someone other than an R is a wasted vote. How can you ever expect to break that stranglehold on a rigged system if you don’t vote your conscience? It takes courage to break from the herd but it just might inspire others as well to follow you. Keep being a lemming if you choose. No one will accuse you of original thought.

        4. avatar alex says:

          This statement is quite possibly the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. If in fact he were to vote for a third-party candidate or not vote at all the net result would be the same for your candidate of choice. At least he would get the satisfaction of voting his mind. Which is more than can be said of the “I’ll vote for a candidate that I don’t believe in/know full well is going to screw me in the end” crowd because it’s not the democrat. That’s just plain retarded

        5. avatar Sambo82 says:

          “*Every* protest vote like that is effectively a free vote for the opposition.”

          Actually no, it’s not. You nor the GOP ‘own’ MY vote anymore than Bernie owns my dollars. And me keeping mine doesn’t mean you have less, because it was never yours. You have to earn them, and you haven’t.

          Nominate a candidate who doesn’t support an AWB next time.

      2. avatar Garrison Hall says:

        “I’m voting third party. I refuse to give tacit approval to a broken two party system. If more patriots would rise up and do the same thing . . .”

        You must be resigned to an America with institutionalized progressivism accompanied a kind of state authoritarianism this country has never before experienced. And, once it in place, you can forget about it ever going away. That’s what voting your principles can lead to. That’s what got Obama elected and it will go a long way toward getting Hillary elected. But, gosh, you sure will have made your point . . .

        1. avatar Bob in MI says:

          I will have voted my concience, and I always prefer to stand on the moral high ground.

        2. avatar Chris Mallory says:

          The Republicans have been an authoritarian progressive party since they put the tyrant Lincoln in the White House. The sad thing is that the Democrats adopted their progressiveism from the Republicans. Jefferson and Jackson beat Lincoln and Grant every day of the week.

        3. avatar doesky2 says:

          @ Bob….I will have voted my concience

          No you voted with your FEELINGS just like all the stupid Dems.
          Grow up…the world isn’t perfect.

          You’re making it undeniably worse by enabling a Democrat to get in and making things worse then it would be if you held your nose and voted for a repub that you don’t care for.

          The only candidate that you will agree with on all topics is if you run for president yourself.

      3. avatar Jaffas says:

        Either way you look at it or from any angle this does not look good.
        The tribes do not need Americans coming over to assist in culling herds of anything. Their own poachers do just fine and elephants are a particularly sensitive subject.
        The shot of a severed tail says what ” I am finally the mighty hunter man!”
        I don’t think so.

        1. avatar Scoutino says:

          I don’t hunt myself, but I have some questions. How much do poachers pay for the privilege of hunting elephants? Tribes may not need American’s help to cull the herds, but they sure do need American’s money to pay for conservation.
          Let’s say no rich hunter is allowed to come to Africa and shoot elephants, rhinos and lions. Peace and paradise, right? How long will locals suffer these animals which are only nuisance or even danger to them once they can’t sell them to hunters? Who will care if poachers kill them all? Or if all the wildlife parks land is used for something profitable? The main barrier between big game and extinction is not state sponsored protection but money from hunters.

      4. avatar GRW says:

        May as well seeing as Trump has already said he’ll attack Cruz with a maple syrup flavored birther campaign because it’s not about what is good for the country or even the party all that matters to Trump and Hillary is a Trump or Hillary win.

    4. avatar Accur81 says:

      Exactly what JWM said. I’m voting as far away from Hrod or the Bern as possible. I almost want to vote multiple times – there’s no voter ID in CA – but with my luck I’d be one of the few Independents / Republicans actually doing that.

    5. avatar Fred says:

      This.
      Trump is not the ideal choice but winning against the two front running democrats is mandatory. Part of Trumps odd attraction seems to be his ability to look unstoppable in the face of a media onslaught. I’m not yet convinced that he is, but how he deals with the GOP will proof that on its own.

      Altho we don’t get a general election vote in the US Virgin Islands (with the big centennial anniversary of American ownership happening next year… Awkward), we do get delegates for the GOP primary. From what I heard most were uncommitted but caught between Ted, Rubio and Carson.

    6. avatar DetroitMan says:

      I’m no fan of The Donald, but I’ll take him over Hillary or Bernie. I would rather my gun rights be negotiable than a target for elimination. With so many USSC seats up for grabs, we can’t afford a Democrat. I would much rather have Cruz or Rubio, but I’ll take Trump if he is the nominee.

      1. avatar tmm says:

        It seems like DJT vs HRC is more accurately Dishonest New York Liberal vs Dishonest New York Liberal

    7. avatar Sambo82 says:

      Not me. I have more faith that the “Great Negotiator” could get gun control through Congress than Hillary. It’s Libertarian Party this year, and probably every year from now on if the GOP keeps nominating AWB supporters, like they have with Trump and Romney.

    Shooting an elephant is no more a sign of second Ammendment respect than burning a flag shows support for the government. Just another rich white guy with a defective moral GPS.

    1. avatar DrVino says:

      Trophy hunting does seem like an extravagance of the wealty. I try to keep my hunting on food procurement.
      Yet, what goes unsaid often is just how utterly destructive elephants are. Many subsistence farmers and their families suffer as a result.

      1. avatar ropingdown says:

        I agree that there are many farming communities for which elephant herds prove destructive. There are regions in Africa with what some would say are too few elephants, and regions with unsustainable large herds.

        On the food, front, however, little is wasted. When you hunt an elephant in sub-Saharan Africa the local community butchers and consumes the elephant.

        Eric hunts deer, as well….

      Dude. Even in today’s dystopian age, just happening to have a father who is simultaneously white and wealthy, does not automatically make you immoral……

      The guy’s just a hunter. No different from many of us. As long as he makes reasonable effort to kill humanely, and not go beyond acceptable quotas, he’s just another schlub who paid for a tag and went for a hunt.

      Given that his dad seems to be a world class scatterbrain, and certainly someone addicted to being popular and liked, I’d go so far as to say him having a son involved in a “controversial” activity involving guns, is a very good thing. Much better than reading Donald Jr. is a PETA member, that’s for sure.

    At least his hands are big enough to hold a dumbo tail. Will confess I’ll vote for Hillary cause Trump just makes too much sense. This country has a King so a little interracial Queen action would do this country good. Can you fault a scorn woman who wants to sit 30 feet away from where a woman, far better looking than her, gobbled her mans goo, wanting access to the nuclear football. Furthermore her screeching matches well with BLM folks and the gimme free stuff crowd. I want her to confiscate every rifle, handgun and slingshot so law abiders get their heads bashed in by criminals. God bless the unions funneling dues to democrats cause that’s the way they roll and have to keep murdering those unborn and planned abortion and can get money to Hillary.

    Keep American great….thanks.

    The average American has been so brainwashed by the Anti-Hunting News Media that while they are eating their McDonald’s hamburgers they are posting on Social Media their condemnation of all hunting. It never occurs to them that without hunting they would be shelling out more money in taxes to pay Government hunters to thin out wild game populations. They are actually hypocrites if they enjoy eating meat as what chance does an animal in a slaughter house have to escape. None of course but the thought I am sure never crosses their minds.

    In Africa every time one of its countries have banned hunting it was so corrupt Government officials (who were being paid off by poachers) could reap obscene illegal profits from the illegal Ivory and even bush meat trade.

    All this is kept from the public either on purpose or through total ignorance by the U.S. News Media who portray all Hunters as kill crazed lunatics who are toothless red neck hillbillies that guzzle down bottles of beer while blasting away with the latest assault rifles. And a gullible public believes every word of it.

        Mitt through his reputation into the gutter yesterday. The man who lauded Trump four years ago publically….now trashes him with slanders? He says Trump is not a successful businessman, citing four minor businesses that didn’t constitute 3% of his active investments? Mitt devoted his own career to bankrupting small and medium-sized businesses. A few survived.

        Mitt isn’t upset about Trump’s businesses. He is envious, and he is upset that Trump has promised to try and tax Hedge Fund Carried Interest as ordinary income. I’m with Trump on that. Mitt has proved to be a money-grubbing disloyal and bitter sell-out.

          Mittens was quite the Progressive in Taxachusetts.

        2. avatar barnbwt says:

          Yeah, Trump’s not money grubbing, nor a sellout. He pays tithe every year just like Romney also, and never got a kick out of firing anyone. He’s certainly never been bought & paid for, despite operating his whole life in an absolute den of corruption & organized crime, which he’s admitted to engaging with bribery. Nope, not a sellout, despite toeing the liberal line with his support & money while scamming rubes in NYC, and toeing the cartoonishly-hawkish conservative line now that he seeks the presidency (well, scratch the hawkish conservative part; he’s already backpeddled/contradicted himself on every policy he ‘saw the light’ on)

          Meanwhile, one of the guys responsible for organizing support for the Heller case that got guns back in Chicago, DC, and eventually NYC, who has an entire career of evidence supporting the constitutional restraint of government is overlooked. Simply because he isn’t a blowhard asshole that weak men wish they could emulate.

        3. avatar ropingdown says:

          To be honest, barnbwt, Trump has never pretended that he wasn’t frequently dealing with very unsavory characters. John Cody comes to mind. Was Trump ever bought and sold. Not to my knowledge.

          Each election, primary or general, we get a chance to vote for the candidate most aligned with our own action goals. In closed primaries for me, that means “which Republican?” For me it’s Trump. I have a much closer knowledge of his actual business behavior. Rubio and Cruz don’t really have any business behavior to know. Cruz is my second choice.

      3. avatar Chris Mallory says:

        Ties to Putin? Oh Noes! You mean Trump wants a constructive relationship with the leader of the 2nd most powerful nation on Earth? Better we rattle some sabers and involve ourselves with crappy little nations on the other side of the world.

        1. avatar barnbwt says:

          Buy a new globe; Russia ain’t anywhere close to second. They are an enemy, though, so ties to them should be considered. Especially given his many ties to other enemies, like NYC politicians, guys like Bloomberg & Soros, liberal causes, and democrat candidates in other states.

          “Oh, that’s the cost of doing business” So what happens when he is offered more money or power by forsaking the minority of activist gunowners? Or by international organized crime interests looking to expand the reach of global corporatist power? Or a majority of voters who desire free stuff (like a wall or jobs) regardless of the consequences?

          None of it matters since he says he’ll keep the mud races out, right?

        2. avatar int19h says:

    As far as hunting elephants specifically goes, everyone who does so is either ignorant or an asshole. Hunting animals that grok death enough to bury their dead and mourn them does not befit a sentient moral being.

        Now, if an elephant charges you, I don’t see a problem with you shooting it in self-defense. But if you go trophy hunting elephants, you’re either clueless, or scum.

        1. avatar Accur81 says:

        2. avatar int19h says:

          I understand them just fine. Would you suggest that we open up trophy hunting on humans in Africa, also? I mean, think about the revenue! And it could all be directed towards conservation efforts – I mean, welfare programs. Surely saving so many people from poverty is well worth a few human heads mounted on someone’s wall as trophies?

        3. avatar Accur81 says:

          You pulled out human trophy hunting as some bizarre, sick tangent. I’m talking about money from hunting tags being used to preserve elephants, rhino, etc. The meat and other products goes to locals. The guides and assistants are paid by wealthy hunters. The “alternatives” to trophy hunting generally include poaching. Non-hunting safaris are certainly a tourist attraction, but trophy hunters can pay $10,000 – $25,000 fees for exotic tags. That’s a whole lot of conservation. See: South Africa.

          If you don’t like trophy hunting you’re free not to do it. I just don’t see the point of bashing it like some mindless anti-gunner. Perhaps you’d rather have exotic game shot by poachers or paid government employees.

        4. avatar int19h says:

          I don’t have a problem with trophy hunting. I have a problem with trophy hunting sentient animals (or, at least, the ones likely to be sentient). Surely you can understand the difference?

        5. avatar jlp says:

          I understand your feelings but elephant control can become very complex. In well managed game reserves the elephants do know that they are safe within the boundaries of the park but leave at night to raid native farm land when they become to numerous for the Park so culling is sometimes necessary. On the other hand some parks are very large and there is not enough money to hire large amounts of game rangers and then the poachers move in and attempt to slaughter the entire herd.

          Elephants today are being squeezed into smaller and smaller areas even where they are somewhat protected due to the human population explosion in Africa. In the old days intertribal warfare and disease kept human populations under control but in modern times with modern medical care even people living in remote areas are getting access to drugs that do indeed save thousands of human lives which results in an explosion of the population never seen before in ancient times and when it comes to living space the government game control people since the early 1900’s are often sent in to wipe out any problem herds of animals to the last animal, this is what wiped out the majority of wild game in Africa, not legal hunting and even not poaching but the mass slaughter of herds just to make room for more human habitation. Now with 99 per cent of Africa’s wild game killed off the poachers are eliminating what few animals are left in Africa.

          Legal hunting actually saves herds of wild game as when wild game has a value and Safari outfits are given blocks of land to manage they are the last group of people that want to see a decline in wild herds of animals. But alas corrupt African Governments are only too eager to eliminate sport hunting and the revenue it brings in for wild game management because corrupt Governments make way more money by being paid off by poachers in the ivory trade who pay large sums of money to the Corrupt Government officials can look the other way.

        6. avatar int19h says:

          I guess I could accept trophy hunting as a “lesser evil” even in this case. But I can’t stop despising people who are actually doing it, solely because they have an urge to kill a creature like that and boast of it later.

        7. avatar Indiana Tom says:

          That has some real possibilities for sentencing criminals to become Big Game, but the Gladiatorial Games show much more promise.

        8. avatar doesky2 says:

          With secular leftists, animals are on par with humans so that’s why they would believe that trophy hunting is equivalent to murder of humans.

          You just have to understand that for many on the Left, their moral compass is broken.

        9. avatar int19h says:

          I’ve known quite a few animals who were not just on par, but clearly better than many humans out there.

          My point, however, was not about animals in general, but about a specific category of animals who are self-conscious and sentient enough to understand, fear and respect death, and create rituals around it (burial, mourning at burial sites etc). Killing such animals is murder, plain and simple.

    2. avatar barnbwt says:

      Elephants also ‘grok’ revenge enough to destroy villages (and villagers) that killed their own for tearing up the fields. I’ll bet you think hippos shouldn’t be hunted either, despite killing and maiming so many. Or hogs, more intelligent than dogs. These animals are dangerous and destructive as would be grizzlies in Manhattan; they WILL be hunted out of habitated areas, the only question is whether money can be made off them in the process.

      As far as human hunting, it would be an absurdist reduction except for the fact our nation pays aid to African nations specifically to secure access for our special forces to track down and kill various warlords, Idi Amins, Boko Harams, and ISIS. As with elephants, it is completely justified and in the interests of everyone.

      -The illegals won’t be deported
      -Sanctions won’t be laid on Mexico/etc for immigration
      -Trump will fold on us gunowners after every shooting
      -Trump will appoint justices he knows from NYC courts to SCOTUS
      -Trump will enrich himself with the office
      -Trump will cut short-sighted deals with democrats & foriegn interests
      -Trump has contradicted himself on every issue he’s previously held the liberal line on

      Harshest of all, none of this matters at all to Trump supporters, because he says he’ll keep the Mexicans away as well as the mean old establishment he’d have to work with to do so. So they ignore the one candidate left with consistent conservative/constitutionalist principles, for the flim-flam of a living meme.

          To me, POTG implies someone who is a single-issue voter, politically speaking. I can’t imagine a liberal who is single-issue on guns (i.e. if forced to make a choice, would always choose pro-gun regardless of what other issue is at stake).

          If you mean Everytown and the like, for all their talk, if you actually look at the voting patterns, it’s clear that gun control is not the primary issue for liberals. Yes, a lot of people would like it, but they care about other issues more, so when ranking candidates, gun control is pretty low on the list, and usually the decision is made long before they get to it.

          It’s exactly why the relatively small, but firm single-issue pro-gun block on the right exerts such influence – piss it off, and it’ll vote you out just because of that; but pander to it, and others to be bothered enough with that to vote you out just because of that. In any place where margins are slim, it’s something that every politician has to consider.

    I see nothing wrong with culling the herd. It is a completely moral act. The white liberals are ignorant of basic wildlife conservation.
    As far as Africa goes it is illegal for the African people to own modern firearms. They must rely on outsiders to control their animal population.
    A herd of elephants is just as destructive walking through a wheat or corn field as a herd of deer or wild hogs is in the USA.

    The hunting business provides thousands of good high paying jobs for the people of Africa. Just as it does in the United States. I believe white liberals are racist who are working to deny Africans the ability to control their animal population and make a living doing so.

    There are many aspects. Yes, he son’s hunting habit does not necessarily translate into the father’s policy prescriptions. In addition it must be noted that many hunters are willing to disregard others’ rights. The duck hunter may not, for example, give a damn about the AR15 shooter. The quail hunter may not care less about the Glock owner’s concealed carry.

You then state “molon labe”, as if you’d actually do something in the face of your opposition disarming you, but let’s face it, your 100% fine with disarming others, whilst you’d likley disarm of given the order by a liberal superior, no?

          (And you still haven’t answered the question. Second strike.)

          BTW, why the obsession with “state imposed” authoritarianism? Is it better when it’s imposed by private individuals? You know, “no dogs, Negroes and Mexicans” signs, like in the good old times?
