They Can't Help Themselves

"For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money,"
Titus 1:7

A couple days ago, the chair of the Bexar county GOP made some Looney Tunes statements about the George Floyd murder.  This was followed shortly thereafter by the discovery that other county chairs had made similar comments.  This was a genuine problem that needs to be addressed.

Indeed, we intended to address that problem today.

Then we saw this:

Looks bad, doesn't it?!?

It does...until you read the article.
As it turns out, most of these new allegedly "racist" social media posts are speculating about George Soros' involvement in recent events.  A couple reference 1992's Reginald Denny tragedy.  These posts may or may not be accurate, but they're pretty specious grounds to lobby an accusation of "racism."

Which is a shame, because the original impetus for this story is problematic (highly so).

But nobody's gonna listen anymore.

Bottom Line:  Diluting the point undermines what was originally a valid inquiry.
