At this point, I’m fairly certain that the members of the British Royal Family are planning hunting trips specifically to spite Morrissey. This week, Prince William is in the news for a pretty dumb reason: Heading out on a hunting trip, with Prince Harry, in Spain, just hours after making a public plea to end poaching in Africa. Morrissey, of course, has an extensive history of publicly fuming about royal hunting habits, and his latest open letter is full of bon mots like this one: “We can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces.” Read the whole thing below.
This story is old, I know, but it goes on.
One day prior to giving a public plea on behalf of animal welfare (!), Prince William is to be found in Spain (with Prince Harry) shooting and killing as many deer and boar as they possibly can! Although William’s speech (no doubt written by his publicity aides at Clarence House) will concentrate on endangered species, William is too thickwit to realize that animals such as tigers and rhino are only driven to near extinction because people who are precisely like himself and his brother have shot them off the map – all in the name of sport and slaughter. Whenever you shoot an animal in the head the outcome is usually the same: death. Just why William kills innocent and defenseless deer does not matter – the fact is, he does it, and we must go on and on asking why any form of violence is acceptable to the British establishment. It is easy for privileged people to assume jealousy to be the reason why anyone would wish to condemn them, but the British Boil Family never fails to be a colossal embarrassment to the United Kingdom. The Spanish trip is more than likely unwillingly funded by the British taxpayer, and we know very well that the British press is duty-bound to always defend and cleanse the bad behavior of the Boil Family – no matter how abysmal and hypocritical their actions. But the rationalists amongst us – who are never allowed to speak, are intelligent enough to realize that endangered species are dying out only because of people like William and Harry, and, for this we can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces.

As time goes on, it only becomes more apparent how much we lost when Morrissey refused to appear on Kimmel with the cast of Duck Dynasty. That could’ve been a showdown for the ages.
