FERGUSON, ONE YEAR LATER: More Unrest — But A Hero Emerges

The one year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death has come and gone with the expected problems from the same “black lives matter” crowd and, of course, those that just like free stuff.

In fact the whole Ferguson thing, not to mention Baltimore got me thinking.

Lately many have stated that all lives matter and we’re all created equal.

But are we? John Kasich seems to think that black lives are more important right now because of “feelings”. I’m thinking they matter to John because he’s nowhere to be found in the polls.

Yet, aside from Republican-light Kasich, I’m thinking that if we’re all created equal why then in “I’m ok, you’re ok” world are there Michael Browns, Hillary Clintons and Hitlers for that matter?

Or say devout Muslims who would strap an eleven year old sex slave to the hood of their car as a human shield.

Or what about the Iranian regime who sentenced a man to have his eyes gouged out for accidentally causing an eye injury to another man? Am I really on equal footing with these people?

Maybe I’m just as equal to the liberal columnist Judith Levine who says we shouldn’t punish sexual predators, if they’re black? Does pushing that crap make her life matter more than mine?

And I can’t believe there are people who would say that members of ISIS who recently punished a group of women and children by burning them alive have lives that will ever turn out anything of value?

And just for the sake of humiliation, the Iranian regime chained and paraded a group of young men and women around the streets of Tehran to discourage social activism. So I want to know, which one am I equal to, the paraded or paradee?

Maybe, just maybe, my life matters as much as the illegal alien who just butchered three of his family members, including his pregnant cousin.

Or the Muslim who murdered innocent soldiers in Chattanooga, TN. a few weeks ago?

And of course the Michael Browns of the world who think they can terrorize others, just because? Are they perhaps not equal to me but better, because of their skin color?
So please tell me how these lives matter and tell me how people who burn down their own neighborhoods for a Lotto ticket and murder each other for a strip of sidewalk are my equals?

I’ll tell you in my world they’re not! To me these lives don’t matter other than to serve as examples for the rest of us who want nothing more than to live as decent a life as possible. People who are trying to survive without seeing their hard earned money being thrown at career thugs by politicians just to win elections.

These lives are not equal to mine or any soldier, firefighter or police officer that puts his or her life on the line to protect me and the people I care about.

Or any farmer, Christian or lover of this country, nope not equal!

They should not be celebrated or figured out, they are evil which is why God made hell.

But, in the face of all the mayhem and insanity going on in the world right now something amazing happened in Ferguson.

There emerged a hero.

A 19 year old women who decided to take a stand. Who placed herself in harm’s way despite the screaming and gesturing being hurled at her from the Ferguson crowd. Lexi Kozhevsky decided not to be afraid and to protect the police. She stood there alone and said “if you want to get to the cops, you have to go through me.”

She stood not just to protect the police but to make a point that not all cops are bad. Whites are not killing blacks at the rate some would have us believe and cops are doing a tough, thankless job. But most importantly, to me anyway she was taking a stand for the truth. The truth that blacks kill blacks at an enormous rate and that fact has to be made known, if it’s really true that black lives matter.
