On Day One, Democrats In Congress Look To Push For Slavery Reparations

By

It’s official. Democrats now control the U.S. House of Representatives.

And first up on their radical agenda might just be slavery reparations.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Stalin (D-NY) came out swinging in support of “exploring” slavery reparations, along with a whole host of other Communist programs.

From Twitchy:

As Democrats officially take ‘control’ of the house we KNEW Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would be SUPER busy sharing her rad and totally NOT socialist ideas and policies on Twitter.

She is indubitably the left’s Donald Trump, just with more lipstick and better hair.

Sorry, not sorry.

And hey, public servants, good news! Alex from the Bronx has some pointers on how you too can build an ‘audience’ (at least she admits it’s all just a show).

-No

-No

-No

-No

-Hell no

Kids these days. Some of them are sorta like unfried okra, just really unpleasant.

Look, there was more …

-No

-No

-Legalize marijuana? Eh, maybe

-No

Holy Hell. …

Well, maybe slavery reparations is just another crazy idea from the gaffe-machine that is Ocasio-Cortez. No one else really supports that idea, right?

And certainly no long-term, high-ranking members of the new Democratic-controlled House support “exploring” slavery reparations alongside the freshman Communist? Right?

Wrong.

From PJ Media:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) told PJM that the federal government should conduct a study of reparations for descendants of slaves to be able to determine the best way to “repair some of the damage” that slavery has caused to the African-American community.

Jackson Lee became the lead sponsor of H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, after Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) resigned from Congress.

The legislation seeks to “address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery, its subsequent de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.”

“It’s a commission to study the issue of what was the economic impact of the work of slaves and how does it translate in the 21st century. And what we want to do is to build a narrative, a story of the facts and out of that be able to access how we repair some of the damage,” Jackson Lee said during a recent interview after her speech at the annual Legislative and Policy Conference organized by Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. …

Jackson Lee called the reparations legislation “a beginning process and an educational process for the nation in a non-controversial manner, and not in a manner of pitting one group of people against another.”

Actor Danny Glover called for reparations for African descendants during his speech before the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) in 2016. Jackson Lee was asked if she agreed with Glover.

“Danny Glover has been a strong supporter of H.R. 40 and we would love to have him as a witness providing his point of view – that’s why this is such a great initiative and legislation,” she replied. …

It looks like Ocasio-Cortez and Jackson Lee are going to team up on the issue, which may very well take center stage in the new Congress.

Right after they impeach President Trump, of course.

At the end of the day, these Democrats fail to understand that more than 600,000 Americans died in the Civil War to put an end to slavery. Wasn’t that enough?

What do you think of this?
