Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren wants to buy the votes of black Americans by promising to raid the bank accounts of white Americans.
Warren calls this super-grand larceny plan “reparations,” which is basically exploiting the sins of distant ancestors, not that 99.999 percent of the white population have an ancestor who held slaves.
The idea that you, as a white person, are responsible for something a distant relative may have done, but more than likely didn’t do, is now an acceptable form of political thought.
California president wanna-be Kamala Harris also supports stealing money from one group of people and giving it to another group that supposedly suffer because of something a slave owner did a hundred and sixty years ago.
The prospect of free money—stolen money—is popular with voters.
“Last week, on the popular radio show ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Senator Kamala Harris of California agreed with a host’s suggestion that government reparations for black Americans were necessary to address the legacies of slavery and discrimination. Ms. Harris later affirmed that support in a statement to The New York Times.”
Both Harris and Warren are threatening your economic future. Even though it’s unlikely “reparations” will be imposed and collected—at gunpoint if you refuse—this collectivist logic is gaining momentum within the Democrat party.
The Times continues: “The morally driven policy goals of Ms. Harris and Ms. Warren reflect a broader shift in the importance of race and identity issues in the Democratic Party, according to several scholars and political leaders who focus on the intersection of race and politics. While Democrats have long cast themselves as more inclusive than the Republican Party, grass-roots organizers and many liberal voters of all races are now pushing elected officials to go further on policies of racial equality, regardless of any political calculations.”
Or the economic calculations.
These folks are like extras in a remake of Idiocracy.
If we look at history—many Americans would rather go to the dentist—we discover that there is no end to such proposals.
According to rhetoric that grows more and more irrational and insistent by the day, all white people, from newborn white infants to the old and feeble, are genetically predisposed to hate “marginalized communities” and, according to a few, the answer is to kill white people. The “liberal” corporate media reports this without comment, let alone denunciation.
