If the Democrats win in November......you can bet on reparations.



1.Terms of recrimination come and go. Once upon a time, probably due to the end of WWII, the attack-words were “you Fascist, you!!”

The term can even be extended to any dictatorship that has become unfashionable among intellectuals. [working-class Americans call it "Communism." Middle-class Americans, educated enough to understand that it's uncouth to say anything against Communism, call it "fascism."] When the Soviet Union and People's China had a falling out in the 1960s, they each promptly discovered that the other fraternal socialist country was not merely capitalist but "fascist." At the most vulgar level, "fascist" is a handy swear-word for such hated figures as Rush Limbaugh or John Ashcroft who, whatever their faults, are as remote from historical Fascism as anyone in public life today.”

The Mystery of Fascism
by David Ramsay Steele



What is most interesting is that the real curse should be ‘You communist, you!” because communism was, by every measure, worse than Nazism/Fascism, but the influence of the Marxism, due to FDR, shifted the vituperation.

“American progressives, for the most part, did not disavow fascism until the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust became manifest during World War II. After the war, those progressives who had praised Mussolini and Hitler in the 1920s and 1930s had no choice but to dissociate themselves from fascism. “Accordingly,” writes Jonah Goldberg, “leftist intellectuals redefined fascism as 'right-wing' and projected their own sins onto conservatives, even as they continued to borrow heavily from fascist and pre-fascist thought.” This progressive campaign to recast fascism as the "right-wing" antithesis of communism was aided by Joseph Stalin, ....”



2. What is the ubiquitous curse today? Of course, it is “You racist, you!!” And that brings us to the question of why that is so, and where it is headed. Clearly, using the term against another is meant to express moral outrage at slavery and oppression, and one’s own virtue-signaling. It has gotten to the point where it presages both a dangerous threat, and, a laugh-line:

“Thrilled with their role as ‘white friend-of-the-blacks,’ many found that they could actually make a living at it! The part requires sneering at nonexistent racists, and memorizing one line: “Goddam it, this may cost me my career but I’m going to speak up for racial equality and let the chips fall where they may!”
Coulter



3. But here’s where it is going: paying the underclass to vote Democrat, what we euphemistically call the ‘welfare system,’ or the ‘safety net,’ has lasted over half a century. Now, the Left needs to insure those votes, so they are ready to up the ante: Reparations.

But….who gets this huge round of largesse?

Who gets paid?

It was the post-WW2 era that saw the expansion of the word "fascism" and its re-definition. Until the liberal Mussolini passed away on the shores of Lake Como, Fascism was a registered trademark of his political movement.

Uncle Joe Stalin was the first to use the name wholesale against anyone who ran against him in any way- from Communist dissenters all the way to conservatives.

Do you default to vulgarity because you lack the education that would make you more articulate?
Africa -worst in:
SANITATION
potable and access to WATER!!
disease
education
starvation
etc
hahhahahahahhahaha--where's the vulgarity?
YOU lack knowledge of the subject = YOU lack education hahahah
Africa is literally and figuratively a shithole--poor sanitation = shithole

Oh, yes, no doubt the community organizers have passed the word to turn out for Mr. Biden.

Not only will he sign a reparations bill in a magnificent ceremony that will warm the cockles of CNN's and MSNBC's and the New York Times's hearts. but they know that his VP will sooner rather than later become a historic President in her own right.

The supporters of that "anti-cop movement" are on a roll. They must be laughing their posteriors off at how easily the powers-that-be caved!

P.S. I assume that reparations will consist of a stipend to be paid every year, with -- of course -- a cost-of-living increase.

4. The argument the Democrats will use will be something like this:

“The world has never seen any people turned loose to such destitution as were the four million slaves of the South. . . . They were free without roofs to cover them, or bread to eat, or land to cultivate, and as a consequence died in such numbers as to awaken the hope of their enemies that they would soon disappear. —Frederick Douglass, “Celebrating the Past, Anticipating the Future,” 1875



Want to verify those numbers?

3.9 million

“As the Union armies advanced through the Confederacy, thousands of slaves were freed each day until nearly all (approximately 3.9 million, according to the 1860 Census) were freed by July 1865. While the Proclamation had freed most slaves as a war measure, it had not made slavery illegal.”
Emancipation Proclamation - Wikipedia



So, if we are speaking of those who were slaves, about 4 million is a doable figure, after all…

…59 million Americans are on the rolls now.

“There are over 59 million Americans that receive welfare during an average month. SNAP is the biggest welfare program in the US. Children, the disabled and elderly constitute the majority of public benefit recipients.”Feb 13, 2020
Straight Talk on Welfare Statistics (2020) | Fortunly


We could just add about 7% to the welfare rolls, couldn’t we, and call those payments ‘reparations.”



Wait……that was some eight generations ago……and even though PlannedSlaughterhood is wiping out about 40% of the black population, there must be well over 4 million descendants.

Soooo…..who gets paid?

As a black man, I'm hoping to get mucho dinero!

And I better get it, whitey!

Tongue in cheek that may be, but it is the central theme of the Democrat Party.

The Democrat Party is now running on full-blown anti-white racism, socialism, infanticide, opposition to free speech, substituting illegal alien voters for the American citizenry, support for rioters, arsonists, murderers, and anarchists, and anti-Semitism… the knuckle-dragging, atavistic pagan party.

We can add 'reparations now! to the indictment.

Barry Obama would have to pay himself but with a 50% discount.

How much do they get paid?
What about people who immigrated here after the Civil War?

I see you agreed with my complaint, although you try to hide it by claiming 'truth.'

Those of us who had better upbringing may not wish to have to endure the childish vulgarity you seem prone to.

I'd look at a Biden victory with a GOP capture of the House as a win. The GOP is much better about spending given a President that's a Democrat. Under such condition a lot more than just reparations would be kept off or cut back from the list of expenditures.

Edit: Strictly to address reparations, it is evident (to me at least) that they would sharpen the divide between black and white rather than heal anything. I'd suggest a review of the Great Society and subsequent programs to see what is working, what did not, and what remains needed. Most importantly the review and proposals shouldn't be done by Washington bureaucrats but rather by those within the affected communities.

You think Biden will go for it when Sharpton asks to hold the money and then divvy it up later? How much do you think Pelosi will get for the abuse Italians took?

You'd consider this a 'win'?????
