Matt Walsh and Cecil the Lion

There was no question that Matt Walsh would weigh in on the most talked about story in the nation.  He didn't disappoint.  His piece, at "The Blaze," is a justified indictment of all the bleeding hearts screaming for the head of the dentist who shot and killed Cecil the Lion, and the media giving them voice.  The indictment, especially of the media, is justified because there is never such concern manifested at the horrible death of babies every day.

Here's a sample of Walsh's indictment:
It’s no coincidence that progressivism advocates abortion to deal with children, and euthanasia to handle the old and the infirm. If it is going to pretend to love human beings at all, it must first get rid of the most burdensome types.
It can be hard to love people. And if you say you love people, life is going to constantly demand that you prove it. If you say you love people, you certainly can’t kill your own child, and you can’t support the killing of children, and even if you don’t have kids, you have to be patient and kind with other people’s kids, and other people generally. This is very different from loving lions. You can love lions passively, in the abstract; people must be loved actively, in reality.
