Former Cheney Administration Spokesman George W. Bush Advocates Killing Spree!
Tops Billing at Safari Club International Convention

Former Cheney Administration spokesman George W. Bush is bringing his ”motivational speaking“ talents to Reno, Nevada, where he will address the Safari Club International, a group of big-game hunters who kill animals for sport. Bush will be accompanied by one of his handlers, the former Actual President’s daughter Liz Cheney.
The Safari Club bills itself as “the leader in protecting the freedom to hunt and in promoting wildlife conservation worldwide” which to me reads like an oxymoron, a word so appropriate because it includes ”ox“ for the hunting part and ”moron“ for you know who.
SCI, as they are also known, is a lobby group that also includes in its membership George H.W. Bush, among whose powerful personal missions is to persuade the government of Botswana to loosen laws restricting hunting of that country’s dwindling lion population. The SCI also has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Republicans to pressure for eliminating import restrictions on “trophy parts” of near-extinct species. So when they speak of “wildlife conservation” it’s apparent they mean trophy cases.
Billing for the event also includes the band Three Dog Night, named for a typical post-show evening with their unsmokinly unhot groupies.
