Reparations: Why the push now?

Reparations Why the push now

Democrat presidential candidates have launched the debate of reparations (back?) into prominence. The idea is that the government will compensate black people for the sins of slavery over a hundred years ago. There are no specifics in regards to rich black people, mixed people, or African-American immigrants. Nor is there a dollar amount specified. The vague notion of free money always has its appeal to the recipients. However what are the motivations of these promises? Are the Democrats shamefully pandering? Or are the Democrats corralling?

There have been recent incidents of Democrats overtly pandering like AOC having a blaccent which is hardly different from Hillary Clinton  or Joe Biden when they pandered to black people. The entire border crisis is a Democrat ploy so that they can drastically shift America’s electorate in their favor by pandering to the illegal immigrants whom they help vote already or intend to give citizenship so that they will vote someday.

So before answering the three questions posed in the beginning, it must be determined, the reason the Democrats pander. Steve Deace, on a recent “Blaze Roundtable” discussion, which is a must-watch, described the Democrat electorate according to a NY Times study. The study found a gaping disparity between Democrats on social media and Democrats in real life. The discussion concluded with Steve Deace explaining how the Republicans are a coalition and the Democrats are a confederacy (just like old times). Democrats are a confederacy of identitarian politics: blacks, hispanics, gays, Muslims etc. So, pandering to keep this confederacy alive is blood flow for the party.

But not all pandering comes in equivalent degrees. The recent push for reparations is an aggressive pander that can literally be construed as buying votes. “You give, I give.” It makes for a good campaign promise like canceling student debt (that was voluntarily assumed.) However, when it comes to Democrats pandering to black Americans, one needs to notice clear trends.

The first trend is increasing racial tensions. Much of this came from the Obama years beginning with events like the death of Trevon Martin by the hands of a hispanic man. However, when Daron Wilson defended himself against Michael Brown, the media and police misrepresented the situation, culmulating in riots that could have been avoided. Several other false martyrs were raised, and occasionally there were wrongful deaths. People’s racism kept them from treating every person’s hashtag as an individual case. Nor did they care for rule of law in the matter. In Baltimore, the Freddie Gray trials featured a blatant instance of a social justice jury that hanged the first (black) defendant. He was charged with various homicide and reckless endangerment charges because he didn’t put a seatbelt on Freddie Gray. The rest of the defendants chose bench trials to their own acquittal. Baltimore is a worse place as a result. This led to people like Kaepernick and various rap stars perpetuating victim ideology, despite their success. This year the Grammy’s gave “This is America” Song of the Year. The song features talentless repetition of the phrase “Get your money, Black man.” This is in stark contrast to the black comedy Barbershop which lampooned the idea of reparations and even having the (arguably) most thuggish character deliver the monologue. Control the culture and you control the policy is a widely believed sequence. Well, the culture is going downhill, as evident by the Grammys and our uncultured society. Thus, this creates a breeding ground for free money policies. This would indicate that the Democrats are simply pandering to pander.

The second trend is Blexit. Donald Trump, for all his statements, won more of the black vote than Mitt Romney or John McCain. Kanye West and Chance the Rapper stated that black people do not have to vote Democrat. I’ve been largely critical of Candace Owens; however, her function in the Conservative movement is a necessary campaign to break the hegemony of the black Democrat vote. After all, the Republicans have pandered hard to Jews. Hispanics tend to vote more Republican with each generation. The confederacy of the Democrat Party if unraveled would spell the doom of the socialist movement in America. Perhaps the Democrat push for reparations is a tactical maneuver to maintain their most secure voting block. It’s very possible this hegemony is more fragile than ever but the gift of free money can forestall eventual disaster.

Final Thoughts

As for the three questions posed in the beginning, come to your own conclusion. The goal of this column was to generate consciousness as to why this policy suggestion is having an aggressive push.

Dean Cain’s label of San Francisco’s new incarceration language is spot on

Dean Cains label of San Franciscos new incarceration language is spot on

Actor Dean Cain is one of the few outspoken conservatives in Hollywood. The star of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman has taken plenty of heat for voicing support for President Trump and for calling out his progressive peers as they rant unhinged.

One of his latest critiques of leftism was in response to San Francisco’s plan to change official words that pertain to convicted felons and juvenile delinquents. In pure Bay Area-style, the city is planning on sanitizing certain phrases so as to not “further victimize” criminals.

Once we catch our breath after laughing at the way these progressives see criminals, reality sets in about how asinine – and potentially dangerous – it is to cater to the criminal aspects of society at the expense of law abiding citizens.

Here are some of the details of the proposal:

San Francisco to do away with terms like ‘convict’, will instead call them ‘formerly incarcerated person’

They recently passed a resolution containing “person first” language guidelines that all agencies and departments are urged to used.

For example, an offender will now be called a “formerly incarcerated person”, “justice-involved person”, or “returning resident.”

A juvenile delinquent will go by “young person with justice system involvement” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

How did San Francisco leaders find time to address this non-issue when homelessness has reached crisis-levels and their city is literally covered in human feces? Have voters become so engulfed in tribal allegiance that they can’t see the absurdity in front of their faces?

Cain’s reaction was short and perfect.

In George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, the nation of Oceania had adopted the official language of Newspeak, “a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought.” It’s both a partial precursor to and a necessity of socialism because freedom of thought allows deviations from authoritarian control. Whether the leaders of San Francisco know it or not, they’re building a version of Oceania right now.

As long as Americans stand by and elect leaders who are more interested in not offending criminals than solving the massive problems faced by law abiding American citizens, this lunacy will continue. San Francisco is dying.

Omar, Tlaib silent after Nadler rebuke

Omar Tlaib silenced after Nadler rebuke

Representative Jerry Nadler is one of the bad guys. He’s leading the charge to keep the House of Representatives focused on one thing: Taking down President Trump. But even bad guys do good things sometimes. His singular moment of clarity came yesterday when he rebuked Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar of “The Squad” fame for sharing an anti-Semitic cartoon on Twitter.

To keep things in perspective, this isn’t Nadler doing the right thing for the right reasons. His interest is in making sure focus remains on the President and he views his freshmen cohorts as distractions. And even in rebuking them, he did so by first insulting the President with a lie.

The President’s comments about American Jews being disloyal to Israel if they vote Democrat is not an anti-Semitic trope. In fact, it’s not a trope at all, but since it’s a word that’s often associated with anti-Semitism, Nadler felt the need to invoke it.

As for the cartoon Nadler referred to, it came from a nefarious source:

But the real news here isn’t that Nadler went after his own teammates. It’s that the didn’t respond. It’s obvious they’re aware of the rebuke, but both have focused on playing nice on Twitter and have not addressed Nadler at all, at least not in public. This is a departure from their modus operandi as they’re known for striking back at criticism regardless of the source. Invariably, they play the race card and characterize anyone who criticizes them as bigots attacking “women of color.”

Nadler is an older straight white male, which is to say he’s a prime target for the wrath of “The Squad.” Are they suddenly playing nice or are they biding their time? Perhaps they don’t want to draw attention to the rebuke. Whatever their reasoning for not hitting Nadler back, their silence is conspicuous.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were wrong to share the anti-Semitic trope and Nadler was right to rebuke them. But don’t cheer Nadler’s action too hard. His only concerns are how their bigotry reflects on his party and keeping attention on President Trump.

Elizabeth Pipko: Democrats ‘supported one anti-Semitic comment after another’

Elizabeth Pipko Democrats supported one anti-Semitic comment after another

Racism is real in America and there’s a push to attach it to President Trump. Anti-Semitism is among the hot topics being discussed by legacy media, especially after the President went after Jews living in America who vote Democrat.

Despite the left’s cries to make the GOP, President Trump, and all of his supporters seem like racists, the truth is starting to come out. Much of this is at the hands of “The Squad,” who ironically attempt to use the race card at every turn. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley have gone so far as to call others racist while demonstrating their own bigotry in the same sentences.

Jewish activist Elizabeth Pipko was part of a panel of Fox Nation discussing the recent press by Democrats to reverse the anti-Semitism narrative back onto President Trump. As their party seems to be pulling further and further away from supporting Israel while attaching to the much larger worldwide Muslim population, it’s becoming increasingly clear they are at a crossroads. Today, most Jews are Democrats, but as the party embraces anti-Semitism as their new normal, how long can that support continue?

As Pipko pointed out, politicians must either condemn or support a stance. Silence is viewed as acceptance, and as Democratic lawmakers are conspicuously silent on “The Squad’s” anti-Semitism, we must take this as their measure of supporting it.
