NFL Player Benjamin Watson’s Ferguson Facebook Post Has Gone Viral

thoughts that are well worth reading

The Conservative Citizen

yepThis week has been a difficult one for the nation. It is deeply divided over the state of race relations and whether the decision to not indict Officer Wilson in the death of Michael Brown was the correct one. Nationwide protests continue as the citizens of Ferguson MO attempt to put their lives back together after a horrific night of violence rocked their town.

There has been a lot of angry words and illogical screeds posted about the situation by all sides of this controversy. New Orleans Saints Tight End Benjamin Watson took to Facebook to share his thoughts on the subject as well. They have since gone viral and please share with me in the comment section below what you think of what he had to say.

“At some point while I was playing or preparing to play Monday Night Football, the news broke about the Ferguson Decision. After…

Ferguson: An outsider’s viewpoint part 1

As an outsider who has lived in the USA and who has relatives living in the USA, I have been following the events surrounding the shooting and death of Michael Brown. Please note that I am not calling this death a homicide (technically it is homicide) or murder, because under the circumstances that existed when the shooting took place the actions of Darren Wilson were justified.

There are many aspects of this case that can be discussed, but my fellow bloggers are covering many of them. Some, such as Andrew Branca have been giving very good summaries of the evidence that was placed before the Grand Jury. Therefore, what I want to raise is the issue of the protests.

First of all, I do not believe that the protests are justified, yet I accept that some people have a right to be upset, and that includes Michael Brown’s parents. However upset those parents have been they are not justified in their efforts to cause mayhem in St. Louis or in Ferguson and its surrounds. On top of that it is ludicrous that they claim that their son has been disrespected when the truth about what took place has been placed before the Grand Jury. There were several more credible witnesses than Dorian Johnson and the few who went on T.V. to tell their lies.

Second, the mayhem, looting etc. etc. is the work of political activists, the Marxists, the local chapter of the New Black Panther Party (the black equivalent of the KKK), Anonymous,  and other Anarchists. These activists include individuals involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement. It is even probable that they have links to the Underground Weathermen including links to Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorhn. These activists want to take over the USA and turn it into a basket case society.

Third, in my household there has been a bit of a debate about the protests and the reasons for the protests. It seems that my husband thinks that these people have a right to protest and be upset. He has even used the word oppression in regard to this particular population. However, I disagree with him, and this is despite any of our experience when we lived in Fairborn, Ohio back in 1984-85.

We lived in a neighbourhood that was mostly white, and as far as I am aware there were no blacks in our part of Fairborn. The blacks lived on the other side of Fairborn. What stood out about this community is that there was almost no crime. On our first night in the house that we rented someone threw a rock through the window (in a room that we never used). That incident was disappointing. When we first arrived there was another family of Australians not very far away from us, but they left a few months later.   The Beaver Creek neighbourhood was different because no blacks lived in Beaver Creek and if one was seen then the police would consider their presence suspicious. We also had friends living in Beaver Creek.  Both neighbourhoods were middle class in their outlook and make-up.  Whilst we were living in Fairborn there was a drive-by shooting and a murder (at the local motel where we had stayed whilst waiting to rent a property when we first arrived and then when we left). That kind of incident was very rare in Fairborn.

Fairborn was not far from Dayton and Xenia which is where most of the blacks lived. We heard of some crimes including the rape of a woman who was caught on the freeway exit just out of Fairborn. I really did consider the crime level to be low.  At least in Fairborn we were aware of the police presence, and on one occasion I was helped out by the police due to something going wrong with the car that I was driving.

My husband had different experiences during his other visits to the USA. He had stayed in Georgia where he had seen other things happening. I think it is actually his other experiences that make him think that somehow or other the blacks have a right to their grievances. Yet, I will beg to differ since I do not believe that the incident itself had anything to do with police oppression or whatever you want to call it.

Where the shooting of Michael Brown is concerned what matters to me is the lead up to the event, that is it is the detail regarding the story that is very important. It starts with the strong arm robbery at the Ferguson Market.  Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson stole cigarillos. A customer inside the business contacted the police via 911. Michael Brown had intimidated the store clerk and this incident was caught on CCTV footage. Police Officer Darren Wilson was in the neighbourhood attending to another call when he heard about the robbery and received a description of the perpetrators. He saw Brown and Johnson walking in the middle of the road, where they were disrupting the flow of traffic. Wilson did what any normal cop would do, he told them to move to the footpath. This angered Brown. Johnson then noted that Johnson was wearing a black t-shirt and one of them had the cigarillos. He backed up his car to speak to them again. Brown got very aggressive, and during the struggle that ensued, Brown attempted to take Wilson’s gun. Two shots were fired within the SUV. Brown and Johnson then ran in different directions. Wilson pursued Brown and Brown turned back towards Wilson. He did not act like he was going to surrender, instead he charged at the police officer.  As Brown let his head down in the charge, Wilson fired off another shot which was the fatal blow.

Wilson had every right to pursue and then attempt to arrest Michael Brown on suspicion of being involved in a strong-arm robbery as well as assaulting a police officer.

However, there is a lot more to the whole story, because it turns out that Leslie McSpadden who is Brown’s mother is shacked up with Louis Head, who just happens to be one of the local activists. On top fo that one of the men who was earliest on the scene was a man by the name of Shahid, also a well-known activist and trouble-maker. It was Shahid who had been seen speaking with Dorian Johnson and two other alleged witnesses. Johnson had gone home and changed his top. He did not replace the bracelet that had been on his wrist when he was in the store, but had been found at the scene of the crime. The reason for the change of top was so that he would not be recognised by the other police. It looks like Shahid got the three together so that they concocted the “hands up, don’t shoot” scenario. Those words were never uttered by Brown!!The whole of the testimony by those witnesses was nothing but a lie.

Once Shahid was involved the ball was rolling and it seems that McSpadden had similar magical links to the likes of Parkes and Chump…. then the media circus began.

The Marxist Media have continued the lies about Michael Brown, proclaiming the gang member to be some kind of gentle giant, who was intending to go to local college so that he could learn how to be a refrigerator mechanic…. yeah, sure.  They used a picture of a younger Michael Brown, just like they did for Trayvon Martin. It is this aspect of everything that has taken place that has really sparked my interest because once again we see how the stirrers and instigators of rioting work together to cause chaos…… and it all goes back to the White House.

The Freedom of Religion otherwise known as separation of Church and State

The separation of Church and State is an issue in each of our respective countries.  The meaning of this principle is not as claimed by the atheists and others who have an issue against Christians.  By this I mean that this principle has nothing to do with the notion that the State must not allow anything with religious overtones, except it seems if it has something to do with Islam.

What I am getting at here is that there is a lot of hypocrisy by people who are opposed to Christians. This becomes obvious when the State is insisting that Christians who have certain moral values must for example allow gay “marriages” to take place on their premises, or they must bake cakes for gays who are “getting married”. In such cases the people making the complaint could have either accessed other facilities or used other bakers, yet they decided to oppress the Christian owners of their businesses.  This of course means that the State is in fact denying the principle of separation of Church and State by punishing the owners of these businesses.

Here in Australia the latest affront to Catholics is in Victoria where the Victorian Opposition Leader has announced that if he becomes Premier then he will punish the Catholic Church and force the Catholic Schools to take on individuals as teachers who do not in fact follow the practices of the Catholic Church. This is a very grave affront to Catholics for the simple reason that such an effort is indeed total hypocrisy….. and it has nothing to do with separation of Church and State.

Let me reiterate once again the true meaning of this principle, and a little bit of the history behind why the U.S. founding fathers thought that it is important. The principle is “the State must not enact a religion over any other religion” or in simpler terms the State must not establish a religion. What this should mean to the people is that the State cannot establish, for example the Anglican or Episcopalians as the main religion of the State. At the same time it means that Islam cannot become the religion of State.

As I thought about writing this post, one thing that was uppermost in my mind was the way in which the study of Islam is being foisted on students in public schools whilst the Christian religion is being punished or banned. In some areas of the USA, and in the UK for example, people are not even allowed to outwardly display their Christianity. They cannot pray before a football or a baseball match, or at the school assembly and these are just a few examples of State oppression against Christians. In the same vein as these examples, the State trying to force a Catholic School Administration to take atheists or people of other “faiths” does indeed go against the very principle of separation of Church and State.

I remind you of some of the history behind this principle, because it goes back to ancient times. In the period of the Maccabees the Jews were forced to worship the Greek god that was placed in the temple or die. The story of the woman and her 7 sons exemplifies those who are willing to sacrifice their lives rather than worship idols. However, during that same period there were many who agreed to worship the Greek god rather than remain faithful to the One True God. When the Romans took over from the Greeks, they were insisting that the people treat the Roman emperor as though he was a God. Thousands of Christians died because they were not willing to make sacrifices to the Roman Emperor. They were persecuted for their faith. Eventually, under Constantine the Christian religion became the religion of the State, but after Constantine there were other Emperors who had other ideas, and they worshiped idols, thus the Christians once again faced being persecuted and death. Some emperors attempted to interfere in the running of the Church, going as far as removing a Pope who did not agree with them…. history is littered with many examples of this form of interference. This brings me up to the time of Henry VIII who made himself the head of the Church in England. Once again Catholics were being oppressed in the name of the State. Queen Mary in turn persecuted some who were opposed to her Catholicism. Then along came Queen Elizabeth 1, and once again Catholics were persecuted. After this reign and after King James,  the Roundheads gained control of the Parliament and once again Catholics were persecuted and martyred.

I am concentrating here on a bit of English history because a lot of the early settlers in the USA were English. They were people who were fleeing persecution (even though their sect had been doing the persecution in England at the time). They understood the need to be free to form their own ideas. For this reason, the various sects within Christianity, including the cults such as Scientology, Christian Science, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Christadelphians and others have been allowed to exist without persecution.

What has happened here is that the principle of Separation of Church and State has become warped and it no longer operates as was intended by those who did not want the State interfering in their religious beliefs. If a State Government attempts to force certain things on a Church school system, then that is a violation of a fundamental right of freedom of religion and it sets up a war between that Church group and the State.

U.N. does something right – bans two branches of Ansar-al-Shariah

It has taken the U.N. more than two years to take this action against Ansar-al-Shariah, however, this is good news as far as I am concerned.

The U.N. has placed Ansar-al-Shariah Derna and Ansar-Al-Shariah Benghazi on the terror list. Both groups are responsible for terror attacks inside Libya and they are directly responsible for the death of the U.S. Ambassador and his companions on September 11 2012. Since then they have been attacking people in Benghazi, as well as being behind kidnappings etc. etc.

The ban means that members of Ansar-al-Shariah are placed on a travel watch list. The ban includes not being allowed to get hold of weapons (fat chance of enforcing that, U.N.)

For once I believe that the U.N. is correct, but I believe that this action is 2 years too late.

Will Saudi Arabia ease driving restrictions for women?

The London Telegraph is reporting that Saudi Arabia is considering allowing women over 30, not wearing make-up to drive until 8.00 pm.

Personally, I find the possibility that the Shura Council is even contemplating such easing of restrictions to be very surprising. The Saudis have been flaunting their negativity towards women and the Saudi women, like those in Iran are very oppressed. A woman faces the possibility of being lashed for simply showing a piece of skin in these countries and those women do need the support of other women around the world, if they are to be successful in being able to cat off the yoke of oppression that weighs them down within Islam.

Is this move simply a sign of the times? I do not know the answer to that question.
