An Open Letter to Kendall Jones - the Hunter Who Has Become The Hunted
To Kendall Jones
You will note I did not start off with the word 'dear' - for I do not wish to address you in an endearing manner
You will also note that I am one of the many people, who have paid a visit to your Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/kendalltakeswild
and left comments. ( No wonder you closed your Twitter account and instead made a locked account with @kjones94_ )
So were my comments praising you? No indeed they were not. They were letting you know what I think of you and your atrocities.
By the same token, were my comments threatening you? Were they abusive? Were they calling you foul names? (etc etc etc) No indeed they were not. You see Kendall I do not condone abuse, threats of violence, swearing or name calling. No I do not condone these things at all, yet nor can I understand what makes you such a sick and twisted person to want to go kill any animal, regardless of if the animal is cute , beautiful or not. ALL have a right to life and you do not have the right to take that life away.
Thus I can fully understand why your actions have moved so many people to threaten you, to wish ill upon you, to call you every rude name under the sun and then some! For that, I am afraid you only have yourself to blame.
So what has driven people to this anger and outrage? What has made the hunter become the hunted?
Could it possibly be down to the photos of a once beautiful and majestic lion that you stole the life from and then braggingly posted upon that Facebook page? Could it possibly be down to the other pictures videos and comments where you brag about your atrocities?
So Kendall, I get the feeling this is why people have commented on your Facebook page. The hunter has become the hunted. Thousands of messages from shocked and angry people have landed on your page and told you exactly what they think of you faster than you can block and ban them.
You thought you could silence some of them didn't you Kendall?
You thought wrong. You certainly have not silenced me have you Kendall. Every time I take a moment to peek at your Facebook page I see the flood of angry, bewildered and shocked comments aimed your way, far more against you than for you. Does that not tell you something?
Petitions against you are springing up left right and centre and thousands are signing them. Does that not tell you something? You may feel you are just doing what you enjoy . You may feel there is nothing wrong in what you do and have a right to do it. Oddly enough the Nazis thought the same.
People said it was crazy when women wanted the vote
People said it was crazy to want an end to slavery -
People said it was crazy to want to end Apartheid -
Crazy, radical, whatever you wish to call it Kendall but there will always be people like us and we will keep fighting against injustice, hunters and hunting and we WILL win this war eventually
So you think those of us who are vegetarian, vegan, anti-hunting etc are crazy don't you Kendall. You like to poke fun on your page at those of us who have respect and compassion for our fellow planet dwellers. That is fine, you can think that if you wish, but perhaps next time you preen in front of the mirror take a good long hard look at yourself and see the truth of an ugly soul looking back at you.
Your vanity in it's sickening need to proudly pose next to a dead animal is highly unattractive. Your need to place your foot upon the body of an animal is a concern. I suggest you get some therapy and soon.
It seems to me you grew up sick and twisted Kendall. While most teen girls worried about boys and had pop star crushes, you were busy killing wildlife and thus crushing the life out of them.
You talk about conservation Kendall, that is a big CON yes
The only reason hunters spout about conservation is because they want plenty of animals to kill!
Please don't try to kid us OR yourself that you give a damn about wildlife Kendall
People that give a damn don't go chasing around the world spending thousands of dollars to kill
Those that give a damn simply donate money to protect the world's wildlife
Do not claim you want to help, help should never be offered with a price tag, especially if that price is the loss of a life.
And that reminds me Kendall, posting the picture below about how you were going to take these things over for the poor children in Africa may make you feel like Lady Bountiful but I put it to you that the thousands of dollars you spend killing just one lion or other wildlife is more money than the average African will see in a lifetime, or many lifetimes! It would probably build a school, or a hospital.
Dear Reader, if you are as angered as I am at the atrocious activities by Kendall Jones and other hunters like her, then please be pro-active and fuel that energy into something positive , It is easy to just type angry comments, but it does not change anything. Make your voice heard in a more positive way . Many of the trophy hunters come from the USA thus please contact the Director of US Fish and Wildlife Service to demand a ban on the import of 'trophys' into America https://twitter.com/DirectorDanAshe
