Reparations PAID IN FULL


Most of the Democratic candidates are now pushing for ‘reparations.’ They must know it’s all ludicrous, impractical, and unfair, but it’s another way to divide the country.

Reparations were paid in blood when over 600,000 men died fighting the Civil War. America has already righted the wrong that was slavery.

The reparation talk isn’t really what it seems, though. It’s simply about the Socialist Democrats seizing on any issue that will raise our taxes while making more people dependent on government.

They don’t want us coming together. We are already a divided nation and reparations will only widen the gulf. Our divided nation is already fighting a second civil war, albeit it cold one. We don’t need to turn it into a hot one.

Mark Levin: ‘I Don’t Intend to Pay One Damn Penny in Reparations to Anybody, Period’

by Jeff Poor

At the top of his Wednesday nationally syndicated radio broadcast, conservative talker Mark Levin, author of “Unfreedom of the Press,” castigated Democrats pushing the position of reparations to be paid out for America’s past sin of slavery.

Levin acknowledged the “awful” of slavery in the United States but argued the issue was being used as a political wedge by the Democratic Party.

“Slavery is the most awful, awful event that occurred in this country,” Levin said. “But I’ll be damned if I’m paying one penny in reparations for many reasons. I had nothing to do with it. My ancestors weren’t even here. In fact, the vast majority of people who live in this country were neither the progeny of slaves or slaveholders. This is a scam. This is a scam. It is the latest push by the left to divide this country, to make it impossible for us to ever come together, being pushed by the left and the Democrat Party.”

According to Levin, there were already prices paid by Americans for slavery with the loss of life in the American Civil War. Read the rest HERE.

Today is President’s Day.

Presidents’ Day, officially Washington’s Birthday, in the United States, holiday (third Monday in February) popularly recognized as honouring George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The day is sometimes understood as a celebration of the birthdays and lives of all U.S. presidents – Britannica.com

Somehow though, I can’t help wondering: How many of the administrators, faculty, students and staff at Abraham Lincoln Middle School in Gainesville, Florida, for example, actually know that President Lincoln was a Republican?

 

Dinesh D’Souza is a #1 “New York Times” bestselling author, the filmmaker behind “Death of a Nation,” “Hillary’s America,” and “2016: Obama’s America,” and a nationally sought-after speaker. He brings a fiery message of limited government, personal responsibility, and individual liberty to campuses all across the country, debunking #FakeHistory everywhere he goes.

Young America’s Foundation engages with students across the country to inspire them with the ideas of individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values. YAF is the principal outreach organization of the Conservative Movement and introduces hundreds of thousands of young Americans to these principles every year, most of whom have never heard the arguments for freedom and personal responsibility before.

In this segment from his hour long presentation at Dartmouth College on Feb.11, 2019, D’Souza talks about how progressive historiography suppresses the “complicity of the Democratic Party in the great crimes of American politics.” And that “most of the things for which Democrats indict America, or Republicans or the white man, or even the South, were not done by America, the white man, or even the South, but were actually primarily driven by the Democratic party itself. It’s the accuser who is actually guilty of the crime.”

Fractured America

By Ben Garrison

Earlier this week I was on the Jesse Lee Peterson show out of LA.

It was a short segment early in the morning and we briefly discussed the NFL kneelers. I spoke about how they offended the fans, the veterans, and US history in general. I pointed out that black Americans have just as much stake and heritage in this country as anyone else. The first person to die in the Revolutionary War was Crispus Attucks, a black man. There were black Minute Men. I mentioned Andrew Jackson and the black battalion that was vital in defeating the the British in the Battle of New Orleans.

Peterson had one call for me—a woman who angrily denounced Andrew Jackson and how those slaves were forced to fight. I was taken aback by this, because those men were heroes and veterans to be honored regardless of slavery. Shamefully, some of those men did not get their freedom, but it does not take away from the fact that they put their lives on the line for their country. I might have added that nearly 600,000 ‘privileged’ white men died in the Civil War to end slavery.

The kneelers seem to have forgotten that.

Increasingly our country is divided. Civility is being replaced by name calling–and even violence. People want others with whom they disagree to lose their jobs. Accusations of sexual impropriety are widespread. Censorship is being implemented by the tech left. Rational debate is replaced by name calling and fear. Racial hatred is very real and always has been, but it seems worse nowadays—and our first ‘black’ president, Obama, actually set back race relations. Too many people now hate our country, our history and our culture. Continue reading at grrrgraphics.com.
