Tony Makris, NRA official, has again defended his killing of an elephant by shooting it in the face. This time he compared his critics to Hitler.
Please everyone: stop making unfair comparisons to Hitler and Nazi Germany. Unless the situation involves a systematic slaughter of specific ethnic groups and people, the analogy is not only false but also insulting.
Back to Makris, killer of Babar’s friend, who has stated that for anyone to oppose killing elephants and not other species, is tantamount to animal racism. And Makris insists Hitler would have stated the same belief.
Neither Hitler nor the elephant that was just brutally slain were available for comment.
Several species of elephants are on the endangered animals list. Their ivory tusks together with men like Makris killing them for sport, further threatens their existence.
Actually Makris makes a good point. To distinguish among animals does smack of some level of discrimination.
So, he is invited to return to Africa, unarmed, to go one on one with any of the massive denizens that reside there.
Without guns, or guides or champagne.
