Watch this video and take note. Apparently capitalism and free markets are more deplorable to the Left than rhinos going extinct is.
It seems the woman in the video cares more about saving rhinos from being seen as a “commodity” than about actually taking steps to save the species. She talks of ad campaigns, and anti poaching messaging. But that ignores the reality of why poachers are targeting rhinos. The massive amount of money they can make doing it! As stated in the video, when owning rhinos was made legal, the rhino population quadrupled. But, again, it is more important to the Leftist in this video that we do not perceive rhinos as a commodity.
So, in short, saving a spectacular species of animals, like rhinos, is not the first interest of the “animal rights” crowd. As I have said repeatedly, Leftism destroys everything it touches. In large part, this is because Leftism, as an ideology ignores reality and truth, preferring to try to force everything to fit into leftist ideology. The results are always the same, good things are destroyed. No cost is too high to prove Leftism works apparently. Tragically, the magnificent rhino is just another example of how cruel leftist “compassion” really is.
