Dem’s $12 trillion perpetual victimhood scheme buys party loyalty

Reparations for slavery is newest machination

The American Civil War ended on April 9, 1865, when Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House. The event marked the abolition of slavery in the United States. Jefferson Davis, a democrat, was the president of the confederacy. Abraham Lincoln, the nation’s first Republican president, ran and was elected based on his opposition to slavery.

That 156 year history gets muddled when in the hands of congressional democrats in 2021.

Many Americans trace their family’s arrival to the European immigration facilitated at Ellis Island at the turn of the last century. Influxes arrived on our shores, learning English, working diligently and embracing American history as their own. Mostly working class, they strived to ensure their children received college educations, understanding that was the pathway to a successful future. Asians, subjected to the bigoted Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 eventually arrived on the West Coast and became successful, contributing Americans. Not a single one of the newcomers, many discriminated against themselves, were slaveholders. Neither were the decades of Americans who preceded or followed them. 

But the democrats have another ace up their collective sleeve. Opening the southern border to hundreds of thousands of Central Americans is just the tip of their financial giveaway. The illegal aliens have been deemed eligible for enormous benefit packages, not the least of which is cash payouts.  

Pay attention to the scam The Washington Examiner headlines in its recent report, “House set to vote for slavery reparations commission.” The ultimate objective is that those of us who never owned slaves, will be paying reparations to those who never were slaves.

Though the concept is preposterous, H.R. 40 has 175 democrat co-sponsors, including Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ CD 2) who will not be running for reelection due to repeated, debilitating falls related to her admitted alcoholism for which she has sought treatment and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ CD 3) who was frequently drunk at work and is on record paying off a victim of his sexual harassment.

    Democrats are all about self serving, divisive schemes and never about our nation. The party has become a grievance industry and the only way to win voters to their side is to convince them they are marginalized victims and only the Dems can breathe air into their lungs and put money the rest of us are paying, into their pockets.

    In reading your article I was fine until I came across he old refrain of wanting us to pay slavery reparations. I normally wouldn’t think anyone on the left really expects us to pay the monies for reparations but I may be wrong in these days of President Biden. However, I feel that the request for reparation is a so called “Dog Whistle” which is put forth solely so that conservative will automatically be against these reparations and then the leftist can call us racist based upon our being against these bribes. The leftist feels the only way we can show how sorry we are for past indiscretions is to do what they say no matter how dumb it may be.

      When Kamala Harris was a presidential candidate she urged using tax credits and other subsidies to pay off today’s blacks for the injustices of slavery.

      No one alive today was a slave or owned slaves. Where does this lunacy stop? Will we cede the American West back to the indigenous tribes? Will Jewish Americans be allowed to sue American Germans for the atrocities committed or condoned by their grandparents or great-grandparents? If Your doctor is Japanese will you be able to demand reparations from him because you lost uncles when Pearl Harbor was stealthily bombed by Kamikaze pilots?

    Isn’t there a time limit on the ability to bring certain charges or sue ? It seems nearly 160 years would qualify as a statute of limitations.

    • Casper says:

      If your mind functions rationally, yes. But if you’re chronically aggrieved because it’s a good excuse for not succeeding, any means possible will do.

      i want a sporty, new Jaguar, but it’s out of my price range. The next best deal is to get my Ford driving neighbor to buy it for me with my entitlement reparations. That’s how this works.

    Every one of the demoncrats who signed onto this insulting bill should be primaried. We’ve got to take our country back before it’s too late!

    Why do Arizona Democrats elect and reelect drunks to congress?

    • Seen It All says:

      My best guess is that there’s not much difference between a drunk or sober democrat. Neither one thinks rationally.

    OFF TOPIC BUT VERY IMPORTANT:

    This is from the final paragraph of a statement from a White House press release that sounds like it was dictated by Barack Obama, who had a fondness for referring to the “Holy Qur’an:” 

    “The Holy Qur’an reminds us that “God is the light of the heavens and earth,” who leads us out of darkness to the light.  Although our White House festivities will be held virtually this Ramadan, Jill and I look forward to resuming the traditional White House Eid celebration in person next year, inshallah. ”
