We are all about equal rights under our Constitution and the law.
Equality, while not universally practiced at our founding for a too many years afterward, was still always a cornerstone of our founding.
And for when our country failed to live up to its expectations, our framers gave us a process that allowed us to adopt new constitutional amendments to fix those shortcomings.
Now, however, Joe Biden’s handlers are threatening to rip our country apart — again — and for nothing more than because they can (and that’s really their objective anyway).
You have likely heard a left-wing Democrat of color push for “reparations” in recent years.
They claim that today’s generation of Americans, none of whom owned slaves or knew anyone who did, owe black Americans money though not one of them has ever been a slave or even knew anyone who was.
It’s one of the most divisive issues our country faces, and the Biden regime is about to put it on steroids.
White House senior adviser Cedric Richmond says the Biden administration will “start acting now” to deliver reparations for African Americans in the form of government-funded college tuition and other measures, adding that there is no need to wait for Congress to study the prospect of direct payments to Americans based on race.
Last month, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held a hearing on H.R. 40 — a bill sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) and co-sponsored by 161 other Democrats — that would set up a federal commission to explore reparations for black Americans, The Hill reported.
Richmond, a Democratic former congressman from Louisiana, told “Axios on HBO” that he believes legislation to create such a commission will pass, but, “We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now.”
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African Americans,” Richmond told the outlet, reiterating, “We have to do stuff now.”
He added, “If you start talking about free college tuition to [historically black colleges and universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think you are well on your way.”
Forget for a moment that using federal tax dollars to show preference to any race or ethnic group is blatantly illegal and unconstitutional.
Think about what this proposal actually does to the American psyche.
Think about what it will do race relations.
Think about the anger it will generate, and not just among white people but among Americans who aren’t black.
That is precisely the point.
The Marxists in the Biden administration understand that in order to replace our constitutional system, it must first be destroyed.
And what better way to do that than to get Americans warring among each other based on one of the most base of emotions: Skin color.
Democrats want to destroy America, period.
This insanity proves it (again).
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
