(Tea Party PAC) – One of the topics Democrats just don’t want to let go of is that of reparations, because nothing screams “justice” like punishing innocent people for crimes they never committed.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee made an appearance on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” program where she talked about how America is finally ready to give descendants of slavery reparations because of the “attitude” of President Trump.
This is just another Democrat politician desperate to get some attention from the mainstream media so she’s jumping on the “Trump is a racist” bandwagon, a tactic that’s getting quite old at this point.
Lee said, “The commission would study reparation proposals. We would not dictate to the commission its design but, clearly, it would be designed for those descendants of slavery. Tragically, 250 years of slavery in the United States for those enslaved Africans did not receive workman’s comp, salary, 401(k), or anything, and literally built the wealth of the United States and Europe. That’s why it was called the trans-Atlantic slave trade, taking enslaved Africans from Africa, frankly, from many parts of Africa. This commission would have the authority appointed by the President, the Majority Leader, the Speaker, and scholars, to really dig deep, something that we have never done before and to design the response.”
She added, “I think America is ready for this because of what we have been going through in the last couple of weeks, because of the attitude of our Commander-in-Chief, and because of what we have seen. The dastardly impacts of white nationalism, white supremacy, and outright racism that has impacted others but certainly has impacted over the decades and centuries African-Americans, the descendants of enslaved Africans.”
This really shouldn’t be a surprising statement coming from someone who actually believes that racism is a threat to national security. Because, you know, there’s just so many folks walking around killing each other because of their skin color and ethnicity these days.
Sure, real racism still exists in America, but it is nowhere near the level of public influence it was before the Civil Rights movement. Our nation has made much progress in this particular area and is improving all the time, despite what haters like Jackson Lee and other leftists try to tell you on the news.
Anyway, check out what the Texas representative had to say about racism:
“I believe that racism… should be declared a national security threat. Racism is a national security threat. Before, we would say, ‘you have a right to your racist views. You have a right to believe that slavery was right. That segregation was right.’ We live in an era where that can no longer be allowed.”
First off, as we already established, racism isn’t as much of a problem as the left wants to make it out to be, something we have proof of in how our society now treats the topic of equality. You’ll hardly ever find someone who legitimately dislikes someone or thinks they aren’t worthy of having equality of opportunity just because they’re black.
Secondly, Trump’s not a racist. He’s never done anything racist and those who say he’s said racist things have taken his words out of context and twisted them to mean whatever best fits their anti-Trump narrative.
Don’t believe the hype you hear on the news, folks.
