Facebook Photo Shows Kennedy Girl Shooting Baby Seals
News Busters ^ | June 19, 2013 | Jack Coleman

Posted on 06/20/2013 8:11:16 PM PDT by Main Street

Strange enough to see a photograph of a Kennedy firing a rifle, one with a telescopic sight no less, as the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination approaches.

Stranger still to learn that the Kennedy firing the rifle, a 14-year-old granddaughter of late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, is killing seal pups in Canada, according a caption for the photo written by her father.

The photo was posted this morning on the Facebook page of Maxwell Kennedy, 48, son of Robert and Ethel Kennedy.

Here's what Max Kennedy wrote in the caption for the photo --

"Noah and me working with Canadian wild life officials to cull seal population near Rankin Inlet. Over population of seals is causing great damage to local fisheries. Thousands of seal pups must be culled each year. We worked with trappers who taught Noah how to identify the weak ones. Put another way -- here's a photo of my daughter shooting baby seals."

Imagine the veins-bulging outrage from liberals, animal rights groups and anti-gun activists if the teenage daughter of nearly any prominent conservative was photographed doing the same. Or Sarah Palin for that matter.

"Noah and me"

I was going to make a snide comment about the 14-yr-old, but then I realized that the quote was from the 48-yr-old Kennedy father.

I’m guessing there will be plenty of outrage from the animal rights nuts but it just won’t get coverage in the press.

The sons and granddaughters of Liberal icons being hypocritical just isn’t news worthy in the eyes of the Liberal press. (it’s just too common place)

If this were Willow Palin, this would blow the national press into a feeding frenzy and it would become a Palin punch line for many years to come, and a permanent part of Willows name and reputation if she ever entered the public arena.

"I’m guessing there will be plenty of outrage from the animal rights nuts..."

It's ok when the liberal enlightened elite wield the power over life and death; indeed, that's the very core tenet of obamacare. They know what's best for all creatures.

The only outrage the left will show is if a member of the hoi polloi go hunting to bag a rabbit, deer or grouse for the family dinner.

Why is a 14yr old hypocritical? How the press don’t report it will be. The fact they are shooting baby seal shows they moved some from their name sakes. Maybe he is the Kennedy’s red headed step child. That could make his daughter almost normal.

He should say “Noah and I”, not “Noah and me”.

I’m confused. Is the girl named Noah; they gave a girl a boy’s name???

If I remember correctly, we can’t drill for oil on the northern part of Alaska because it might hurt a member of the global wildlife community.

Now however, a Lefty lunatic that would probably pass out if we drilled for oil in Alaska, can muster the courage to shoot baby seals.

I don’t necessarily have a problem with culling the herd. I DO have a problem with inconsistent behavior by Leftists over and over and over and over and over and over...

Noah...

Ah, I think this is a Defensive Name. Considering her relatives, NOAH may be a sort of acronym for “NO AH”. (Calling her Noahole would have been too obvious)

Cheer up - the man isn’t wearing any ear protection and from what one can see in the picture, neither is the shooter.

Love the double standard.

Kennedy shooting seals - A-OKAY

Palin shooting moose - look at the bad republican with an assault rifle

I’d be willing to bet the farm that the Kennedy’s don’t eat what they shoot.
