WHY DON’T “ALL PEOPLE MATTER?”

Case in point: A group calling itself Netroots Nation was having a convention in Phoenix. Their website says, “Netroots Nation stands in solidarity with all people seeking human rights. With today’s (July 18th) Town Hall, our aim was to give presidential candidates a chance to respond to the issues facing the many diverse communities represented here.”
The diverse community turned out to be an anti-conservative, anti-police and anti-white bunch of rabble rousers. Watch the video at this link and see if candidate Martin O’Malley was given a chance to respond to the issue of “black lives matter.” http://www.wtsp.com/story/news/2015/07/19/black-lives-matter-demonstrators-disrupt-heckle-presidential-forum-netroots/30378689/
At my church this Sunday we sang The Prayer of St. Francis. It follows what Jesus taught us, and continues to teach us, we are ALL children of God, brothers and sisters through the blood of Christ.
The hymn opens with very essence of Jesus’ message for the ages:
“Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father, brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.”
As I reported in a previous article, we in America were well on our way to putting race aside as a divisive issue. We were walking together, not yet in perfect harmony, but seeking to achieve greater harmony. Then along came President Obama and his progressive minions who seek only to divide this nation – especially along racial lines. Those minions, including Netroots Nation and every other progressive group, seized on the opening given by Obama and are blatantly out to destroy America by tearing it apart from within.
Although it was sad to see a group of hecklers boo Governor O’Malley for saying, “all lives matter,” it was even sadder that he felt the need to apologize. For what? For proclaiming what should be the most basic understanding of a civilized nation, we are God’s children and we all matter?
Any candidate for any office, especially President of the United States of America, should not bow down to people like this. How is O’Malley going to stand up to Putin, an Aitolia or any rabble rousing leader?
As seen in the video, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was better received as he espoused his socialist propaganda.
What happened at the Netroots Nation Town Hall is a farce. It showed a racially biased group of people who do not want America to be a nation where ALL people have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They seek only the power to dictate to the rest of us. And fools like O’Malley capitulate to them, while socialists like Sanders feed off them.
God help us.
