Heh.

 

Must-read tweets hammer the anti-hunting Left’s #WarOnWomen

http://twitter.com/#!/moderncomments/status/487976065890271233

For two weeks, anti-hunting screechers savaged 19-year-old big game hunter Kendall Jones with death wishes, threats and their weapon of choice — misogyny. When the media discovered that 17-year-old World Cup fan Axelle Despiegelaere had posted a hunting photo on Facebook, all hell broke loose. L’Oréal was quick to distance itself from the newly discovered model, announcing that her “one-time contract” was completed.

Earlier this month, PGA Tour golfer and Kendall Jones supporter John Peterson suggested, “If it was a 60 year old overweight dude posing with his African kills, no one would talk.” He’s not 60 or pudgy, but his hunting photo certainly didn’t spawn weeks of national headlines. The anti-hunting, gun-grabbing Left sure loves to target young women, huh?

Bingo. Hysterical womenfolk can’t be trusted to accurately identify a rape threat, so better that they arm themselves with nothing more than their own urine.

On Saturday morning, Brandon Morse continued calling out those who prefer their women defenseless, disarmed and dependent.

NFL nixes fans’ protest of Phill Simms’ refusal to say ‘Redskins’

Some Washington Redskins fans hung a banner to protest Phil Simms refusal to say the team’s name. Fans are probably more annoyed by Simms’ bandwagon jumping than by his sanctimony.

San Francisco celebrates World Series win with mayhem and riot-selfies

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants who won the 2014 World Series last night with a dramatic 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals.

And as is tradition here in America, the way to celebrate such a monumental athletic achievement is with a riot:

But here’s a new twist to the post-game celebratory mayhem. Fans are now taking riot-selfies:

Two people were shot during last night’s “celebration” as well. Stay classy, San Francisco.
