Reparations: Another Cynical Racial Ploy from the Democrats


Recommended Posts


They say money is the mother's milk of politics, but for the Democrats the true mother's milk is racism—that is the perception thereof. Without the belief that America is a racist country, specifically against blacks but generally against any other group they can claim to be vulnerable, the party would cease to exist, dissolving into a puddle like the Wicked Witch of the West in the "Wizard of Oz."

That is why they work so hard to preserve this sense of a country suffused with racism, fanning the flames at every turn to make it so, even when it isn't. In so doing, they often hypnotize themselves, convincing themselves of their own belief, which in turn perpetuates the myth and continues to manufacture hatred where it doesn't exist.

Their latest gambit in this repellent cycle is the renewal of the demands for reparations for slavery. Never mind that this country fought its most dreadful war, resulting in the deaths of 400,000 Union soldiers, to end that horror. Never mind that the population of our country—approximately 30 million at the end of the Civil War—is now 325 million, a relatively small percentage coming from families that were here during slavery. Most came in waves of immigration, many escaping from such events as the Armenian and Jewish genocides, the Ukrainian Holodomor, during which Stalin starved millions to death, and similar famines and wars in China, Southern Europe, Ireland, Scotland, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia that caused those waves. And then, obviously, so much of Central and South America, Cuba, etc. in turmoil of their own. (I'm undoubtedly forgetting a few.) Do these people—legal and, yes, illegal—owe reparations for slavery?:snip:

Why Are 2020 Democrats Embracing Slavery Reparations?

Today, Senator Cory Booker, one of the many Democrats running for president, announced legislation that would “form a commission to recommend reparations for slavery.” According to Booker, “This bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country. It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed.”:snip:
