Since hunting is back in the news, let’s see what those ‘evil’ hunters are up to while animal-rights activists are throwing paint on stranger’s clothes, (or whatever they do these days).
While half-synthetic Pamela Anderson and her type protest to tell us how ‘unnatural’ it is to kill an animal, hunters have been using their time a little differently.
Let’s go back to a classic interview with Ted Nugent that blows the hell out of their smug moral superiority arguments.
Nugent hammers home what most hunters know and what I point out in my new book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation, in my chapter, ‘The Top Ten Reasons Why I Love Hunting’.
The Blaze – Rock legend Ted Nugent revealed a “hidden secret” on Glenn Beck’s radio program Wednesday that he says the media has kept hidden for 26 years: he and other hunters donate roughly 250 million meals each year through programs like Hunters for the Hungry.
“We process and we cook and distribute 250 million hot meals of pure, nutritious, low-fat, low-cholesterol, wild organic venison,” Nugent said. “250 million meals a year, Glenn.”
“That’s one of the most staggering facts I have ever heard, that I have never heard,” Beck responded. “That’s absolutely crazy that’s not out there.”
“The propaganda ministry hates me, hates hunters, hates freedom, hates private property rights,” Nugent said. “We have so many deer in this country — more than ever in recorded history.”
Hunting provides massive amounts of food for the poor. Unlike the liberal blowhards who talk about helping the poor, many hunters practically do it by feeding them. The hunter, who generally speaking is a conservative, is supposed to be, according to the Mange Stream Media, a calloused living heart donor. However, the reality is that we provide a massive, benevolent source of high-protein, low-fat food to the poor at our own expense. Put that in your hookah and smoke it, anti-hunting morons.
Here’s the truth, weepy, “save the poor” hypocrites: the “evil” group known to you as hunters gives away hundreds of thousands of pounds of the best meat on the planet at their expense to the poorest among us. In the last couple of years alone, my buddies and I have paid for the hunting, butchering and processing of, conservatively, 10,000 pounds of sweet venison for the poor in Africa, at risk kids, Christian ministries, and abused and battered women here in the U.S. of A. That’s 10,000 plus pounds of meat just between a few guys in the last few years. How do you, the “loving liberal”, stack up against that? Not very well, I’ll bet.
The original video interview has been moved behind a paywall, so here’s a clip with Hunters For The Hungry themselves.
The La Times ran a piece about the program in Maine:
“Even with out-of-staters. They may have gotten a moose permit, they might be from New Jersey. They want the rack, so they will donate the 900-pound moose to us and just take the head with them,” he said.
Game meat donation programs exist all over the country, with some dating back decades. Wisconsin-based Hunt for the Hungry says on its website that it has overseen the donation of more than 700 tons of deer and other game meat in its 20 years of existence.
…Maine’s program is popular with Thin Blue Line Meats, a Rockland meat cutter that processes game animals for charity at no charge. Owner Jeff McLaughlin said he also asks every hunter if they’d like to donate a pound of their meat to Hunters for the Hungry, and most do.
“The owner of a deer just said, I’d like to keep the backstrap, make me a little sausage and donate the rest to Hunters for the Hungry,” McLaughlin said. “It’s a great program.”
Ah, those ‘evil hunters’ — they are out there, just walking among polite society. (Gasp!) Can you even imagine!
Meanwhile animal activists are drawing cuts of meat on their naked bodies with a sharpie. Because that’s ‘making a difference’. Or something.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
