On yesterday’s edition of “The Hagee Hotline,” Matthew Hagee and local conservative radio host Trey Ware discussed the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, that erupted after a grand jury failed to indict the police office who shot and killed Michael Brown.
Hagee and Ware are quite certain that all of this unrest is being stoked and orchestrated by unnamed nefarious forces which seek to spread chaos and undermine social cohesion, with Hagee insisting that if the Ten Commandments were being followed, none of this would ever have happened.
Hagee noted that when he was growing up with four siblings, his father John Hagee, set down strict rules that kept the house from descending into chaos because he simply “never let it begin,” which is exactly what the government should have done in Ferguson.
“Now that seems like an overly simple principle,” Hagee said, in what can only be described an absurd understatement, “but apply it to the situation in Ferguson.”
“Put the Ten Commandments into play in the Ferguson situation,” he stated. “Thou shalt not steal. What would that commandment have created in this matter? One, there never would have been a reason to be an engagement between Michael Brown and Officer Wilson.”
“Thou shalt not kill,” he continued, talking not about Wilson’s shooting of Brown, but rather the unrelated murder of Zemir Begic in St. Louis over the weekend. “What would that do in the situation we see happening with the young man who was assaulted by a pack of teens carrying hammers who beat his car and then, when he stepped out of the car, beat him to death twenty miles outside of Ferguson in a community just outside of St. Louis? We’re seeing these kinds of things pop up all over the place and the excuse is injustice. The truth is we want chaos”:
