Hate rises up
I find it ironic that the tragedy at the Holocaust museum took place after Homeland Security Napolitano was under enormous pressure to denounce her report that warned against an uptick in activity amongst White Supremacist groups. We know from this country that with great progress comes intense backlash.
And if there is still any doubt, we do not live in a post racial society. “But Brandon, that guy was crazy and was on the fringes of society.” This “he was crazy” argument doesn’t cut it with me. The killer (I refuse to his name) may have some warped views on our society but crazy, he is not. And the more we try to sweep issues like this under the rug, the more we delude ourselves of the need that dealing with hate must be done by us and some other representative.
And like the report from Homeland, some on the Right will respond by saying that “We denounce violence and never condone this sort of behavior. He acted alone and none of this can or should be connected to any conservative leaning commentators, so we shouldn’t over react here. I should also mention that there are some left-wing radicalas out there too, so we have to watch everybody.” In other words, “Things happen.”
So for all the people that praise the killing of George Tiller as saving babies, what will be the line for Stephen Johns? Better yet, I don’t want to know but do know that for as much as you claim to love America, America is not God. And please note Hebrews 10:30, “Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.”
Stay up fam,
Our sincerest condolences to Stephen Johns family and friends.
