You decide who is to blame for the Charlottesville, Va. tragedy.
The Chicago Tribune on Wednesday August 23, 2017 Editorials Page wrote an article, Why does the ACLU help neo-Nazis? The article explains why they sued the City and why a Federal Judge ruled in the ACLU favor. (Source HERE)
If you are interested in reading the details that led up to the tragedy and why the charge is second degree murder against the driver, perhaps you should read another article in Wikipedia.( Source HERE)
Who to Blame?
Who do you believe is to blame after reading both articles in their entirety. Frankly, I do not know if these two articles are fact or fiction, or what to believe from the newspaper or TV reports either.
However, I believe that all parties involved could have avoided this tragedy if they everyone had knowledge and understanding of Four 3000 year old proverbs of King Solomon.
First Proverbs – Root Cause of the Tragedy
…32If you have been foolish in exalting yourself Or if you have plotted evil, put your hand on your mouth. 33For the churning of milk produces butter, And pressing the nose brings forth blood; So the churning of anger produces strife. (Proverbs 30:32-33)
Second Proverb – Purpose of a Wise Activist Leader
Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives, to help them do what is right, just, and fair. (Proverb 1:3 NLT)
Third Proverb – A Wise Activist Response How to Answer Fools
Do not answer a fool when he speaks nonsense, let you, too, are reduced to his level, Answer a fool when he speaks nonsense, lest he suppose himself to be a wise man. (Proverb 26:4-5)
In Other Words
Everyone knew the white supremacists are a minuscule number of bigoted fools looking for attention. If the opposing activists would have ignored the white supremicists instead of pressed and confronting them, the tragedy would have been avoided. The Robert E. Lee statue issue was being decided in a lawful court.
Instead, the white supremacists obtained the attention they were seeking which was an advertisement for more loose cannons to hear their bigotry and nonsense. All contrary to what is right, just, and fair in the USA Bill of Rights and Constitution. All of which the bigoted white supremacists are ignorant about.
Is President Trump to Blame, or the Activists and Political and Local Government Leaders?
You would think President Trump is the culprit, or perhaps strawman, based on all the news reports. However, every involved activist who is listed in the Wikipedia report of the details who fed the tragedy should consider this proverb.
Fourth King Solomon Proverbs.
As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man. (Proverb 27:19)
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. (Proverb 22:3)
Anyone who supported the politicians and Council members, or supported the opposition activists on both sides of the issues should also look in the mirror and into their hearts. The question for their hearts is do they feel any guilt for being an accessory to the tragedy?
In My Opinion
If you were interested and read the thousands of words of explanations, consider how just eight words, if discerned beforehand, could have been averted the tragedy.
Five words from an Argentina dance instructor,
“It takes two to tango.”
Three words of wisdom from a mother to her anxious son, made famous in a song.
“Let it be”
