I suppose I should have seen this coming. I just didn’t see it as a day-one item for the Dem-controlled House. They are pushing for slavery reparations. Yep… we should all have to pay those who have never personally been slaves for deeds we never personally committed. Forget the fact that there were white indentured slaves as well… that’s just a distraction. This is to take racism and Marxism to new levels in America.
You should not be surprised that the dolt behind this move is Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who came out swinging in support of “exploring” slavery reparations, along with a whole host of other communist programs. Not only is this woman a communist, she is just about as bright as a winter’s night during a blizzard.
Twitchy has more on the intellect that is not Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s strong-suit:
As Democrats officially take ‘control’ of the house we KNEW Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would be SUPER busy sharing her rad and totally NOT socialist ideas and policies on Twitter.
She is indubitably the left’s Donald Trump, just with more lipstick and better hair.
Sorry, not sorry.
And hey, public servants, good news! Alex from the Bronx has some pointers on how you too can build an ‘audience’ (at least she admits it’s all just a show).
A few social media ideas for public servants looking to build an audience:
– Endorse Single-Payer Medicare for All
– Hold Wall Street Accountable
– Make Min Wage = Living Wage
– Cancel Puerto Rican Debt
– End For-Profit Prisons & ICE Detention
– Fight for a #GreenNewDeal

Kids these days. Some of them are sorta like unfried okra, just really unpleasant.
Look, there was more …
A few more ways to gain traction:
– Support a Federal Jobs Guarantee
– Bailout Student Debt
– Legalize Marijuana & Explore Reparations, Baby Bonds

-Legalize marijuana? Eh, maybe
Holy Hell. …
Wow… so much stupid and it’s just the first day. My head hurts. And just in case you thought this was just a case of a freshman airhead spouting off… there are those supporting her communist drivel. Albeit, they are pretty much all crazies, but they are leftist mainstream.
From PJ Media:
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) told PJM that the federal government should conduct a study of reparations for descendants of slaves to be able to determine the best way to “repair some of the damage” that slavery has caused to the African-American community.
Jackson Lee became the lead sponsor of H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, after Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) resigned from Congress.
The legislation seeks to “address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery, its subsequent de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.”
“It’s a commission to study the issue of what was the economic impact of the work of slaves and how does it translate in the 21st century. And what we want to do is to build a narrative, a story of the facts and out of that be able to access how we repair some of the damage,” Jackson Lee said during a recent interview after her speech at the annual Legislative and Policy Conference organized by Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. …
Jackson Lee called the reparations legislation “a beginning process and an educational process for the nation in a non-controversial manner, and not in a manner of pitting one group of people against another.”
Actor Danny Glover called for reparations for African descendants during his speech before the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) in 2016. Jackson Lee was asked if she agreed with Glover.
“Danny Glover has been a strong supporter of H.R. 40 and we would love to have him as a witness providing his point of view – that’s why this is such a great initiative and legislation,” she replied. …
Please note that both Jackson Lee and Danny Glover are not only racists but communists of a feather as well. We fought a Civil War to free the slaves but that isn’t good enough… it never will be for the racists and the Marxists. They want money for nothing and for all of us to pay until there is nothing left. It’s insane and it’s criminal.
So, it would seem that at the same time the left is going for impeaching President Trump, they are going to go for every communist plank they can think of as well. None of this will go anywhere but it is embarrassing and it shows that this country is in real trouble politically. The morons have gone mainstream.
