Something t.he Church should be doing… basic morality calls for each of us to stand up on behalf of the poor, hungry, outcast, marginalized and mistreated. The protesting NFL players are using their highly visible platform to demonstrate to all the rest of us that we have no excuse not to get involved in ending injustice.
I fought to protect the right of my fellow citizens to have the freedom to demonstrate their beliefs. What might be disrespectful or offensive to me might be a deeply held belief for someone else. We have become far too sensitive to “slightly offensive behavior,” while totally ignoring and turning a blind eye to truly offensive actions that we need to speak out against.
The video clips of yesterday’s speech to the Boy Scouts offer another clear demonstration of why all of us need to oppose this president and his lack of basic decency. The #BLOTUS did not try to inspire these young minds. Instead he demonized his 2016 defeated presidential opponent, and even had them booing her. And he loved every second of it.
I don’t give a damn what you think of Hillary. Allowing the President of the United States to stand in front of a massive United States flag while brainwashing young boys into taunting political rivals brings up images of Adolf Hitler in front of crowds of Nazi Youth.
The image far more than just vividly eerie. It’s blood-chilling.
