Does this above picture relate to an ancient proverb and idiom?
The Chicago Tribune published the above political cartoon.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb and idiom to what message and why when I saw the cartoon it reminded me of the certain political leaders in Washington DC presently in office.?
Hypocrite Definition – a person who claims or pretends to have certain beliefs about what is right but who behaves in a way that disagrees with those beliefs.
He whose conduct is blameless walks in safety, but he who walks in tortuous ways is found out. (Proverb 10:9)
Do as I say, not as I do.
Prov. Take my advice, even though I am acting contrary to it. (Sometimes used as an apology for behaving hypocritically.)
What’s My Point?
Shootings and riots are occurring every day in our Nation and certain politicians and activists want to defund the police. While at the same time, Congress has just approved additional funding to protect themselves after experiencing the January 6 assault to the Capital.
In My Opinion
Perhaps we need to need to defund police protection for all politicians and relate the wisdom of King Solomon proverb to experience what it is like to have to “walk in tortuous ways” like people living in high crime communities they represent?
The next time you hear someone shout out to defund the police, ask him or her to do the same for them so they can experience the wisdom or folly of tortuous what they say compared to what they do.
