Draggingtree Posted October 8, 2021 Share Posted October 8, 2021 Abbeville Institute The Reparations Rip-Off By John Marquardt October 6, 2021 In the dis-United States today, far too many of its people have now lost all sense of proportion and as movie magnate Richard Rowland said over a century ago . . .“the lunatics have taken over the asylum.” What was formally accepted as standard American history and sociology are now being replaced with the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory. Over all of this madness looms the specter of an institution that met its timely demise between 1865 and 1870 with the ratification of the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. While the body of slavery has long since been buried, there are those today who would dig up the moldering corpse in the hope of holding it for ransom. What turned out to be the Reconstruction era’s false promise to freed slaves of forty acres and a mule has now evolved into the current lure to their descendants of gargantuan monetary payments in the form of reparations. The idea of such cash reparations in relation to slavery is, of course, not new, with the first such payment being made in 1783. Today, however, the demands for reparations in the form of direct cash payments to black families who claim to be the descendants American slaves is astronomically higher.
