All of you tards north of the bridge that shoot a wolf deserve to eat it. You are not even hunters and sportsmen, you set up baitpiles the size of mountains and use deer for target practice. FO

holds up a bloody photo of wolf prey at a committee meeting to shock and disgust people it's not merely aimed at wolves, it is also an accusation aimed at the tribal representative who asks for no wolf hunt. It doesn't matter how polite the senator acts when he's addressing the representative, he's aiming the effect of the photo's gore and people's disgust at him as well as the animal. And journalists of the type that collect and parrot barbershop tales and suspend their disbelief for the reward of a "good story" are just as guilty as the what amounts to state-assisted racist campaigns.
