'Cause that's smart:

"Danny Glover to Testify at House Slavery Reparations Hearing

Actor Danny Glover and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates to testify before House subcommittee as topic of slavery reparations heads to Capitol Hill for its 1st hearing in more than a decade."

"The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties is holding a hearing on Wednesday to discuss H.R. 40, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s bill entitled “Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act.”
---------------------------------------------

There's so much stupid in this ideal that it's tough to know where to start, but let's start with this - perhaps a 1/3 of all white military aged southerners died in the Civil War.  To put that in another way, imagine one out of every 3 of your friends being shot dead or dead of disease.

This number of course does not account for the hundreds of thousands of northerners who died keeping the union & ending slavery.

The bill doesn't account for the hundreds of thousands of mangled and mutilated soldiers, the billions in property damage, or the near-destruction of the country.  in 1866, the State of Mississippi spent more than half its yearly budget providing veterans with artificial limbs.  That number was typical.

In other words, the generation that fought and died in the Civil War long ago paid for the sin of slavery....

A sin which no living person can remember as being legal or just.  No grand parent or great grand parent can remember it either.  In other words, this bill would account for the sins of a long dead generation on the current one, an idea that most find illogical and immoral. 

And even during the last generation where slavery was legal, the vast majority did not themselves own slaves, including those who fought to keep it legal.

The idea that the USA was alone in slavery is just a ridiculous.  Indeed, slavery was legal in the US for less then 100 years, a far far shorter time then a "progressive" country like England. which only abolished it in 1833.  Even today there are several countries where slavery is legal; some 40 million legal slaves are now recognized in the world.  

The proposed bill does nothing for them, the living.

Nor does it recognize that there are tens of millions of nominally white southerners with at least some African blood in them.  Indeed, I'm guessing the majority of the south has at least some direct heritage to the homeland, despite appearing lilly-white.  Will they also receive a check?

Or will there simply be a color chart where, based on darkness of skin, a varying degree of money will be gifted?

Like much of modern liberal politics, this identity-based notion of "fixing" a problem that does not exist but in fact creates one.  There isn't a shred of evidence that reparations would fix what ails black America but does reinforce the idea that the government is the body to do the fixing.

So Glover's appearance demanding reparations, while not quite as stupid as John Cusack's tweets, comes mighty close.

White guilt has no end.

Just as reparations for the sins of your forefathers has no end.

It will never, ever, ever be enough.

There is no getting rid of this, it's too profitable and too politically useful.

The people now act as though no one has ever thought of this before or attempted similar things in the past.  I say they 'act' that way because they know.

I listened to "The Steve Harvey" show this morning, which is the most racist show in the country that's allowed on air, and they argued that "Yes, there was a war, but the South still wanted slavery, therefore the war itself is not payment enough."

Then they argued that while, as Mitch McConnell opined, America elected a black president twice, people still opposed him as president.  Since that opposition can only be on racial grounds, it must be concluded that McConnell, being from a Southern state that had slavery and being a white man who has directly benefited from slavery, AND opposing Obama, he must therefore be the worst racist that has ever lived.

Mind you, this was said on the air THIS MORNING, too a background chorus of "Mmm-hmmm!" and "Thass Right!".

No end to it, ever.

History is never very friendly to the democrat party....

Which brings us to another aspect of this story - it is quite odd that democrats want reparations, as it was they that owned the slaves, they that started the war to keep their slaves, they that started the KKK after they lost the war, they that enable "Jim Crow" laws, they that fought to keep schools segregated.

So I think I'll pass on letting that same party decide which Americans are ex-slave enough to get money from this current generation of citizens who never owned slaves.

Hey, about that....

"Joe Biden Was More Than "Civil" With Segregationists. He Was a Segregationist.

In 1973, Democratic Party leadership was teeming with unsavory Southern senators. If a freshman like Biden--who in a 1974 Time magazine profile admitted "to being compulsively ambitious"--wanted a plum committee position, he would be compelled to approach someone like J. William Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, a segregationist and anti-Semite who would later become a mentor to the Clintons. (Bill awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1993 and Hillary still had her name on a shared fellowship in 2016--although no one seemed to mind very much).

And if Biden wanted to be on the judiciary committee, he would have to get along with Eastland, the "Voice of the White South," who was chair and president pro tempore of the Senate. The stories about their chummy relationship aren't new; Biden has been repeating them for decades.

Biden, according Annis, showed Eastland "considerable deference" towards the Mississippi senator not because he was the key to freshman’s political ambitions but also an ally in the busing fight. Biden admits as much years later in his own 2008 book, "Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics."
------------------------------------

So wacky!  Joe Biden - 40 years of gaffe machine par excellence.

Ruckus and 1970's Biden were right.

Busing was a disaster for everyone.

The right to free association was murdered in 1964.

Make the big tech social justice media giants follow their own rules.

Make them bake that cake full of free speech at government gunpoint.
