Do All Lives Matter Or Don't They?

              Sacramento Kings long-time play-by-play announcer Grant Napear was recently placed on leave by his employer, radio station KHTK, after he tweeted “All Lives Matter.” Former Kings star Demarcus Cousins asked the broadcaster what he thought of the Black Lives Matter movement and Napear subsequently tweeted: “All Lives Matter… Every Single One!”

              Sickeningly, Napear apologized, an act of needless contrition published by The Sacramento Bee. He stated: “I’m not as educated on BLM as I thought I was. I had no idea that when I said ‘All Lives Matter’ that it was counter to what BLM is trying to get across.” KHTK is reportedly “investigating” Napear’s tweet.

              What the hell kind of bizzarro world are we now living in? All lives do matter. Period. That is inarguable. No one but a crazed fiend can rationally argue otherwise. If all lives don’t matter, abortion is perfectly fine, as was the Holocaust. Guess the NAZIs weren’t wrong. Killing a few million Jews isn’t beyond the pale if their lives don’t matter.

              All lives matter. God/Jesus made that pretty clear. So did the founders. If not, maybe black lives wouldn’t matter. Or are we saying only black lives matter and/or white lives don’t matter? All lives matter simply means exactly what it says, there is no hidden meaning. The phrase can’t possibly be controversial. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., would have loved the phrase and the acceptance behind it. It is rationally and morally impossible to disavow the fact that all lives matter.

              If anyone-- black or white, Democrat or Republican-- truly believes that all lives do not matter, they may be on their way to a very warm place for eternity. Sayonara.
