Big Game Stephen Goldfinch

SOUTH CAROLINA LAWMAKER So yeah … that’s a picture of S.C. Rep. Stephen Goldfinch and his wife (College of Charleston board of trustee member Renee Goldfinch) on an African safari. And here’s two more … The undated images show the Goldfinches posing over various animals allegedly shot and killed on “big game”…


So yeah … that’s a picture of S.C. Rep. Stephen Goldfinch and his wife (College of Charleston board of trustee member Renee Goldfinch) on an African safari.

And here’s two more …

The undated images show the Goldfinches posing over various animals allegedly shot and killed on “big game” hunts in Africa.  Screen caps provided with the images include Goldfinch discussing his exploits – bragging about his kills and the weapons used to take them down.

“The lower visability (sic) ended up being a less of a hinderance (sic) and more of an advantage with the extra cover,” the user alleged to be Goldfinch wrote in one of the posts. “It allowed us to stalk very close to animlas (sic) that one would have never gotten close to in the Winter time.”

In one of the captures, the user alleged to be Goldfinch offered to sell a “problem animal control” (or PAC) elephant hunting trophy fee for $6,000.

Interesting …

Goldfinch, of course, is the liberal “Republican” establishment’s candidate of choice for the S.C. Senate seat being vacated by longtime tax-and-spender Ray Cleary.  He’s also the guy who found himself in all sorts of legal trouble two-and-a-half years ago over a controversial stem cell scam (one exclusively exposed by this website).

Oh, there was also this treasure hunting fiasco …

Goldfinch pleaded guilty to federal charges in the aftermath of the stem cell debacle … but he was able to hold onto his seat thanks to an endorsement from S.C. governor Nikki Haley.

Will he be able to win Cleary’s seat?  Who knows …

In a state like South Carolina (where hunting is commonplace), it’s doubtful Goldfinch’s African safari exploits will hurt him – even though big game hunting has become incredibly controversial in the aftermath of last year’s shooting of Cecil the Lion.

Our view on the subject?

“God gave human beings dominion over animals – although we believe hunting for sport is entirely inconsistent with the Biblical notion of stewardship (or love for Mother Earth or whatever you want to call it),” we wrote.  “It’s unnecessary cruelty – killing for killing’s sake.”

[Too] Many years ago, TBG had a high school lit teacher, who was full blown SJW, PETA, would have driven a Prius had they existed then etc type. One day, she pulled TBG aside after class and asked him if he had ever heard of the baby seal hunts (clubbings) in Canada.

With a deadpan expression, TBG responded, “HEARD OF ‘EM? Every year, I sign up for that hunt…but sadly, they haven’t drawn my name, yet.”

Probably gonna burn for that one…

A penguin was having his car worked on at the garage. As he waited, he noticed a Dairy Queen across the street. He told the mechanic he would be across the street and would return shortly.

The penguin got a large ice cream cone and dripped a lot on his face and chest in the process of eating it. On returning to the garage, the mechanic told him, “looks like you blew a seal”, to which the penguin replied, “no, it’s just ice cream”.

A Net buddy and I once posted made-up tales of hunting wolves from helicopters in Canada on a PETA-filled news board. We claimed a preference for gut shots . . . to enjoy the extended plights. The howls were delicious! I mean the howls from the other posters, not any wolves. We of course both really like the many furry beasties.

CorruptionInColumbia April 4, 2016 at 6:30 pm

LMAO!!!! Some of my classmates and myself used to say stuff like that to gross out/piss off some of our teachers. We talked about kicking dogs and breaking coke bottles over their heads. Didn’t happen, but reactions and tirades the false stories started were often priceless.

Part of your post, about the wolves howling, reminded me of this old limerick:

“A novelist from Tortilla Flats
Repeatedly buggered stray cats.
The alley-fence howls
As he stirred up their bowels
Enormously pleased the town rats.”

Ole and Lars, two Norwegian hunters from Minnesota, got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose. They bagged six. As they started loading the plane for the return trip, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose. The two men objected strongly, “Last year we shot six and the pilot let us put them all on board and he had the same plane as yours.” Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. However, even on full power, the little plane couldn’t handle the load and went down a few moments after takeoff. Climbing out of the wreck Lars asked Ole, “Any idea where we are?” “Yaaah, I tink we’s pretty close to where we crashed last year.”

Mike at the Beach April 4, 2016 at 11:17 pm

Amen! I like messing with folks who take animal rights too far. I’m no PETA type…me and cooked animal flesh go waaaaay back. That being said, Goldfinch is still a douche if he has to pay thousands of dollars to go shoot not-so-wild big critters just for the manly-man trophy shot. What a punk.

You know that shit is setup over in Africa just like that too, 90% of the time they are hunting on preserves where the wildlife is hardly wild and their tour guides bait the area the day before.

These hunting tourists spend big bucks to go over there and shoot animals that are close to domesticated.

Mike at the Beach April 4, 2016 at 10:15 pm

Although I am totally immune to the desire to go chase critters around and shoot them, I just as totally respect those who do that within the confines of hunting. All of my duck-killin’ and Bambi slayin’ friends eat their game or donate the meat to folks who will. Who the fuck eats a zebra???

This is just “How to be be a stereotype in one easy step” for Douchy Stevie Goldfinch. Seriously; daddy’s boy, about as macho as Joan Rivers, never did much in life that can’t be tied back to daddy’s checkbook, and too chinless to attract real women (the ones not chasing checkbooks). I think Mrs. Mike at the Beach said it best this afternoon…”Guys who have to go on expensive ‘look at me I’m a stud’ staged hunting trips probably have bigger bullets than dicks.”

Krazy Kat April 5, 2016 at 9:31 am

So there was a deer hunter who was always gone during hunting season. Finally his wife insists that he take her along on a hunting trip. He reluctantly gives in and gives her some basic instruction in rifle use and hunting–thinking she would never even see a deer, much less shoot one.
He posts her in a tree stand and goes off to his at the opposite end of the field.
The morning goes on and he’s having no luck. The deer just aren’t there today. Suddenly the silence is shattered by BANG! BANG! BANG! from his wife’s stand. The husband makes his way down and runs across the field to see his wife in a heated argument with a man he’d never seen before.
The man, looking terrified, finally says, “OK! OK! It’s your deer, ma’am–just let me get my saddle off of him!”

Tom April 4, 2016 at 5:31 pm

Yep, to the amazement of those of us who want to throw up, zebras and giraffes are both common prey for the safari crowd.

Have you never heard of a zebra skin rug? Just like bear skin rugs and leopard skin rugs, our hunters love nothing better than blowing blowing away big beautiful animals.

Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has taken a 10-point lead over Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97%

in Wisconsin in the final hours before the critical primary on Tuesday, a new poll released on Monday afternoon shows.

The bombshell new polling data, from American Research Group (ARG), show Trump’s 42 percent towering over Cruz’s 32 percent in the Badger State. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, for whom it is already mathematically impossible to win the nomination outright before the GOP convention in Cleveland in July, lurks back at 23 percent.

The poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a five percent margin of error. It was conducted from April 1 to April 3.

The Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza signaled this poll is a “siren” worth looking at.

Different culture, different country- the Canadians and Europeans all enjoy horse meat. In Africa most animals are considered food. They do NOT have access to packaged, grocery store products in the wilds of the country. It is their way of life. It keeps many of the villages alive.

Isn’t shooting a Zebra like shooting a horse? What’s the point of hunting something that just stands around and eats all day?

Every one of those animals are a prey animals – they exist to be eaten. If the hunts were done legally they benefit the local economy and provide proper herd management.

Just an FYI on this from a guest who likes reading Fits News. I am not in favor of hunting for trophies such as the big cats. They are not used as food for anything. On the other hand, the way the safari permitting works is this. The hunters buy permits that are issued only for the specific animals and quantities that the local tribes and schools in the area need for their weekly consumption. All the meat from the animals is donated and processed by the local villagers and schools to feed themselves. And I believe a portion of the permitting fees go toward their support.
