There is no more offensive proposition being actively considered today by some of our political leaders than forcing the vast majority of American taxpayers to pay a small minority of fellow Americans money for an institution that victimized some of their ancestors.
The institution is slavery, and the proposal is reparations.
According to a new survey, the majority of Americans are opposed to the idea.
But frankly, not enough Americans are opposed to the idea.
Just the News reports:
A solid majority of voters are opposed to extended cash payments to black Americans as reparations for the historical injustices of slavery, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.
Nearly 60% of the voters express opposition to such a plan, which has been proposed and debated for several decades. Fewer than one-third of all voters support it. However, idea has renewed energy now that Democrats control the House, Senate and White House. The House again has a bill to appoint a reparations commission.
President Biden supports the idea behind the bill, and Vice President Kamala Harris as a senator endorsed it.
Frankly, ‘almost 60 percent’ isn’t enough. Opposition to this society-busting disgrace should be well into the 80 percentage points.
Because no alive today has ever been enslaved in America. And black Americans are, in reality, living in the most equal version of American society in the history of our country.
What about blacks who immigrated to the U.S. in the post-slavery period? Should they be paid?
What about white Europeans and other ethnic groups who came to the U.S. after slavery? Should they pay too?
That is isn’t is a dangerous, dangerous sign.
Because make no mistake, if they can get it done, Democrats will pass this monstrosity.
I can’t think of anything that would Balkanize our country more — even worse than it already is.
