(Tea Party PAC) – This week, the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, And Civil Liberties held a hearing to discuss “the Path to Restorative Justice.”
I.e., reparations for slavery, which have been resurrected as a hot topic this election cycle.
It was a closely-watched hearing as not only was it star-studded, with famous advocates on both sides of the issue, but such highly-charged “social justice” issues are favorites of the far-left media complex.
And, since it was an issue of race and entitlement programs, it was a great opportunity for many on the left to bash Republicans for the cameras.
Political commentator Julianne Malveaux, who joined folks like Ta-Nehisi Coates, Danny Glover, and Sen. Cory Booker in arguing for reparations, pulled all the stops out.
She actually went as far as not only to call Republicans “the Devil,” but to say they’ve taken evil from the devil.
The unhinged libs said that there was “the devil once upon a time,” but that “Republicans took that over, and they became the devil.”
“People want to talk ugly about Democrats, people change their ideology. So the Democrats were the devil once upon a time, there were these groups called the red shirts, which were the Klan, they were Democrats,” Malveaux said, according to a report from Mediaite. “However, the Republicans took that over, they became the devil,. She added, “I’m just saying. Forgive me, brother Chairman, I know you said I’m not supposed to say that. Forgive me.”
“But in any case, people do change ideologies, so all this throwing at Democrats, Democrats and Republicans have been racist,” Malveaux continued.
Unfortunately for her, there was some far more truthful talk about the evils of the Democrats, the party of Jim Crow, slavery, and the KKK. This claim that the Republicans just took over racism from the Democrats and the later party became the saintly tolerant party it is today is just not that well supported. But the dark history of the Democrat Party is, as former Oakland Raider Burgess Owens also testified before the committee:
“I used to be a Democrat until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race… Let’s pay restitution. How about the Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race,” he said.
NFL legend @BurgessOwens tells Democrats THEY should be paying reparations to black Americans.
I do believe in restitution. Let's point to the party that was part of slavery, KKK, Jim crow, that has killed over 40% of our black babies, 20 million of them.pic.twitter.com/aVtmjBboDF
