If We're Doing Reparations, Here's Who Should Pay Them

If We're Doing Reparations, Here's Who Should Pay Them
By Nina May

With the growing push to pass some type of reparations legislation, it becomes increasingly necessary to lay the foundation for both the support for and opposition to such a move.

Florida state senator Blaise Ingoglia introduced S.B. 1248, "The Ultimate Cancel Act," which would require the Florida Division of Elections to cancel the filings "of any political party that has ever endorsed slavery in its official party platform."

This comes on the heels of a cancel culture movement to tear down statues, ban Confederate flags, remove portraits of slave-owners from the U.S. Capitol, and rename thousands of public buildings across the country that carried the names of slave-owners.  It is often overlooked that all these statues, the portraits, the school names...were all Democrats.  All slave-holding Democrats.  Because it was their party that fought a war causing hundreds of thousands of innocent people to lose their lives, as they fought to end slavery.

So should those families who fought to end slavery, receive a check for reparations?  What about the families of Northern blacks who never experienced slavery and were quite successful businessmen and leaders?  What about the first 23 black members of the U.S. Congress...all former slaves, but now leaders of the country?  Their election out of slavery to positions of great power should serve as their progeny's reparations.  What price could you put on this honor, treating it as a slight?

The Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist party, with six of the nine planks in its platform dealing with abolishing slavery, equal rights, civil rights, and voting rights in the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, respectively.  The Democrats, on the other hand, had in their platforms in 1844, 1848, 1852, and 1856 that they proudly supported and defended slavery and the right of a person to own another person.  They believed in it so strongly that when Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican ever elected, made it clear that he would rid the country of the scourge of slavery, the Democrats packed up their tents and seceded from the Union, causing a war that pitted citizens against each other, ending in almost 800,000 dead Americans.

Title of article:
"If We're Doing Reparations, Here's Who Should Pay Them..."

You're going to see more articles like this in the future.

But realize:
ANY article that purports to say, "IF we're doing reparations" REALLY means "WHEN we do reparations".

To even discuss the possibility is to put one's self into position to cave to the inevitability of what's coming.

That's why the ONLY answer whites should give when the subject of "reparations" is raised, is:
NO !!!!

All reparations should come directly from the Democrat Party.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Every living person who was held in bondage as a slave here should be compensated by the person or entity that held them in bondage. No one who has never owned a slave should be affected. No one who has never been a slave should be compensated.

Slavery here met its official end in 1864 in MD when the Yankees approved the new State Constitution. (MD was an occupied State, and not "in rebellion", so the Emancipation Proclamation did not apply. Besides, having slaves was helpful to the Union cause.)

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
