Inequality of Justice: Kim Davis Vs. Lois Lerner & Eric Holder!
By John W. Lillpop
While so-called progressives are ever on the prowl for finding, or if necessary creating, victims of “inequality” to exploit politically, those same self-righteous do-gooders are very selective about which inequality situations warrant public attention.
For instance, Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who has steadfastly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on her belief that admonitions against homosexuals in the bible are God’s very word on the subject, has been taken prisoner and jailed for her actions.
In effect. Ms. Davis is being held against her will for her religious beliefs and is denied her Constitutionally-guaranteed right to free speech and religious expression without government interference.
On the other hand, we have Lois Lerner, former employee of the IRS, who plead the 5th Amendment to avoid testifying before a session of the US House in an important investigation into allegations that the IRS deliberately used unlawful practices against political opponents of the Obama administration.
Using a federal agency to thwart political opponents is not only unlawful, it is morally reprehensible as well.
Congress declared Ms. Lerner “In Contempt of Congress” for her complicity in the IRS scandal, but she remains free to this day, as even more evidence of her malfeasance surfaces.
Another example involves former Attorney General Eric Holder, involved in the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal that saw the US government shipping firearms to Mexico; weapons that eventually cost Americans and Mexicans their lives and actually wound up in the hands of Mexico’s notorious drug cartel thugs.
AG Holder was also found in Contempt of Congress, but skated away from justice by leaving the Obama administration.
In a just and fair society, Kim Davis would be released from jail immediately, while Lois Lerner and Eric Holder would be arrested and jailed.
Unfortunately, because of rampant corruption and inequality of justice, Kim Davis remains jailed while Holder and Lerner are free.
Whither the public outcry and furor over the inequality of justice?
