Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. I read recently that the head of the FBI said that Antifa is not an organization but a movement.It is incredible that the news can find the organizational links and funders but the FBI cannot. But then again the media found Osama bin Laden when the intelligence agencies could not. But as the wise saying goes those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it’s mistakes. Americans in particular are not interested in the past. Often people that speak tomy children say they must be home schooled because they know some history. I think the public school system picks the very worst teachers (with a few exceptions) to teach history. If Americans knew history the 1619 push would be laughed to scorn. Well what of the FBI? Remember J. Edger Hoover? Although he did a fine job of fighting crime across the United States he constantly denied the existence of the Mafia, even in the face of overwhelming evidence. Every kid and business man in New York City knew there was a Mafia. President Kennedy appointed his brother to prosecute the crime families as attorney general, because Jimmy Hoffa had beaten him publicly in an arm wrestling match. Now the FBI is embarrassed at it’s misdirection of resources in not tracking down real domestic terrorists and denies the real ones exist! Marxist and Islamic terrorists are the ones to watch regardless of what politically correct socialists would have you to believe. These are Judas goats leading our country to destruction. Even so come Lord Jesus!
This is a story about a young black man that worked his way up from the poverty of the Great Depression to a hero of America. He broke racial barriers without one riot or the destruction of anyone’s property. He did use violence but it was always in the ring. He was the great boxer Joe Lewis. He always behaved himself as a gentleman both in and out of the ring to make it easier for the next man of his race. He avoided photos that would have him pictured with a white woman and volunteered for the Army during World War II. His most famous fight was with Max Schmelling the champion of Germany. Although not a member nor a sympathizer of the Nazi party politics stuck it’s ugly nose into the sports world and this fight was viewed as a fight between freedom and facism. Max won the first fight but Joe won the second. The war came and both men served their countries. But the war ended and the men who were enemies in the ring and in war became close friends. Joe Lewis came on hard times because of the twin evils of ex-wives and unjust taxation. Added to that over generosity and some bad personal choices he was in a hard way financially. But Max became a successful business man and from time to time sent him aid. When Mr. Lewis died Max helped pay for his funeral and served as a pallbearer. These two men show the world what can be done when by respect, hard work, and common sense, men rise from humble beginningsand earn a place in history. Proverbs 16:7 When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
