Now the Progressive-Democratic Party members are desperately trying to show their virtue by touting reparations again.
HR 40 would establish a federal commission to study how slavery and Jim Crow impact African-Americans today. The bill’s language calls for suggestions to “remedy” slavery’s aftereffects.
My irony meter is pegged. Slavery and Jim Crow were then-Democratic Party institutions. The current crop of Progressive-Democrats doesn’t need taxpayer money to fund a commission whose purpose would be to dilute their past. They need only look in a mirror.
It [reparations] could amount to formal government recognition that slavery was an injustice committed by the US, for example.
I guess Progressive-Democrats think the Civil War was just some people [that] did something.
