Millions of Americans enjoy the pastime of hunting. It is a time-honored tradition, not to mention a vital step in maintaining our ecosystems. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is one of many who proudly hunts every season, but after posting a picture to his Twitter account, a snowflake tried to shame him. Carson responded, proving we need more people just like him.
It’s a sad reality that our country is full of oversensitive pansies. These weak-stomached, soft-brained simpletons freak out over the smallest issue. The advent of social media has only made that worse. These snowflakes meltdown over every tweet, post, and comment they don’t like. Their ridiculous comments reverberate throughout the Internet.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is a popular figure on social media. Like many Americans, he hunts. Recently, he posted a loving tribute to his dog, Mama Henley. Celebrating her fifth birthday, he tweeted a photo of the pup beside an impressive haul of geese.
Normal people would have celebrated along with Carson. Hunters would have gotten a kick out of the number of geese he bagged that day. Snowflakes? They flipped out. The sight of so many dead birds sent them off their rockers. One of them fired back, claiming the tweet was offensive. Carson wasn’t having any of that, and his response was perfect.
Before his season was ended by a knee injury, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was making news for his playmaking ability.
Tuesday, the MVP candidate made headlines with his response to a Twitter user who was critical of a hunting photo he posted to wish one of his dogs a happy birthday…
Wentz, known to be an avid hunter, took to Twitter late Monday night to wish his dog, Henley, a Happy 5th Birthday. In his tweet he included a photo of the dog when she was a puppy, and a photo of her standing over several geese following an apparently successful day of hunting.
One follower responded to Wentz’s tweet saying in part, “As a friend I wanted to quickly highlight that a man in your influential position might cause offence (sic) through the posting of your first picture. I support its sentiment however the context and content of the pic could offend.” [Source: Fox News]
Happy 5th Birthday to Mama Henley! We’ve been through a lot in 5 years. Best dog and hunting buddy I could ask for! pic.twitter.com/HW8DbxTyML

You can decide for yourself if the photo is offensive. I can’t imagine anyone being upset, especially at the sight of an adorable puppy. “The context and content of the pic could offend”? What limp-wristed idiot would be offended by a picture of a smiling dog beside a row of geese? Oh, the geese are dead? Guess what, snowflake? That’s what hunters do. Animals are killed so we can enjoy this thing called protein. It’s a part of the food chain.
Mama Henley seems pretty happy at the number of geese bagged that day. Imagine how proud Carson and co. were, coming home with so many geese. But, no, we should be worried that a weak-willed vegan somewhere online will be upset.
Carson’s response is pure gold.
Wentz then shared that user’s tweet and included his response to the user’s claim the photo could be offensive…
“Appreciate that, but offensive and controversial? Two of the main things I tweet about are Jesus and hunting. That’s what I’m passionate about and that won’t ever change! When you love something, you talk about it! Stay convicted about it and don’t worry what others think!” Wentz wrote.
Wentz’s response has since been retweeted thousands of times and liked nearly 30,000 times. [Source: Fox News]

Right on, brother. You would assume the people who follow Carson Wentz online are well aware of his lifestyle. If he tweets about his faith and his love of hunting, who would be offended? Why follow someone if you know his posts would upset your oh-so-sensitive sensibilities?
Besides, who would be surprised to learn that an all-American quarterback is into the sport of hunting?
Thankfully, Carson responded the right way. There are far too many figures who would have wilted. Celebrities, athletes, and media figures are quick to bury their convictions out of fear that they might offend someone or that it will hurt their popularity. It’s that kind of cowardice that gives snowflakes and liberals free reign to police our speech. Carson refuses to stand for that kind of nonsense. Neither should the rest of us.
