Dad hits back at critics after pictures of his son hunting went viral

Leftists care more about one lion than they do about millions of aborted babies.

A father who shared pictures of his two young sons on their first big game hunt has a message for liberal animal rights activists who have flooded his Twitter account with negative comments: your priorities are all wrong.

Allen Tarpley was forced to shut down his Twitter account after liberal activists began attacking him for a couple of old pictures that resurfaced following the outrage over a Minnesota dentist who killed Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe.

“There was no media hype about Planned Parenthood selling baby parts, but one lion gets killed, and everyone goes crazy,” he told the Daily Mail Online.

Tarpley had originally posted the pictures online years ago, but they were uncovered recently by a South African anti-hunting group in an attempt to demonize hunters who share the tradition with their children

Tarpley also shared a picture of his 9-year-old posing with his first lion.

“There’s people that don’t understand hunting and what it does. People don’t understand it,” he said.

Tarpley also said the furor over the photos show the hypocrisy among liberal activists, repeatedly slamming his critics for their selective outrage.

“They don’t care about human beings and babies being slaughtered and body parts being sold for Planned Parenthood but they care about one animal,” he said.

Of course they care more about one animal… Planned Parenthood gives enough money to progressive causes to buy them favor among liberal activists.

Tarpley stressed the point that legal controlled hunting is not only necessary, but it is nowhere near as offensive as some of the news items that are reported on a daily basis.

After all, with Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts, ISIS causing chaos in the Middle East, and increased violence in America’s inner cities, there are probably more important things to be outraged over than a few pictures of a father sharing a rich tradition with his kids.
