A Parody of a Revolution

John C. Velisek USN Ret.

I do not understand why those of the “Black Lives Matter” activist group get upset when someone says “All Lives Matter”? “I am a Christian,” another “sect” soon to be banned if the government has its way. And I consider every life precious. Yes, black lives do matter, as do White lives, Asian lives, Hispanic lives and all others. But it is becoming a contest to decide whose lives matter more, according to the terms of political correctness, that is.

 Why are people booing those who say all lives matter? Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley were booed off the stage. And why was illegal alien and media darling Jose Antonio Vargas doing the interview? Has the media become so agenda driven that it’s no longer acceptable that an American should discuss American politics?

My family came from Eastern Europe I the 1920’s. My grandfather became a mechanic, my father a tool and die maker. They weren’t given any special privileges. In those days the Irish and the Eastern Europe and immigrants were thought backward, slow and unreliable. They didn’t get ahead because of so called “White Privilege”, but because they learned what they needed to know, worked hard and moved forward........ So a bit of advice for BLM. Get off your high horse, and quit blaming others for your sorry lives. Pull up your damn pants, and go find the opportunity that are open to all of us. Quit living on the guilt you perceive in others, and make your way to a life you can be proud of. Use the energy you are using to try to make whites feel guilty and use it to clean up your neighborhoods from gangbangers and drug dealers. Use your gangster identity to make the lives of those around you better, help the kids to learn instead of letting them be ridiculed......
