Reparations-Deep State Exclamation Point

I predicted many years ago, when it was first being suggested in quiet corners of our collapsing country, that one day reparations for slavery will become a reality. In recent weeks, a campaign has begun- a predictable type of media driven agenda to those familiar with gradualism- to push a reparations bill through Congress.

Watching white presidential candidates competing with each other to acquiesce the loudest to this ridiculous proposal, it becomes clearer than ever that America is being run into the ground by certifiable idiots. Corrupt idiots at that. Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, whose monumental incompetence I have written about before, introduced something called the Commission to Study and Develop Reparations Proposals for African Americans Act in January. It’s fitting that someone who thinks we won in Vietnam and planted a flag on Mars is the primary moving force behind this ludicrous legislation.

Beto O’Rourke, being promoted relentlessly as some kind of “rock star” by our state- run media, quickly climbed on board the reparations train. “That is something I would sign into law as president of the United States.” O’Rourke told Rev. Al Sharpton, predictably front and center here. O’Rourke proclaimed that we shouldn’t “just celebrate civil rights victories…we also look at the brutality, the violence, the continuing suppression today.”

Andrew Yang, being touted as a new maverick in the Democratic party, called reparations “a logical step.” Elizabeth Warren is a supporter as well, declaring, “We must confront the dark history of slavery and government-sanctioned discrimination in this country that has had many consequences including undermining the ability of Black families to build wealth in America for generations.” Kamala Harris and Corey Booker, two more of the sterling cast of Democratic Party presidential candidates, support some form of reparations.

It was disconcerting to watch video of Elizabeth Warren and others fawning over someone like Al Sharpton. For those unfamiliar with Sharpton’s actual background, he was a drug dealer who was turned into an undercover FBI agent to avoid prosecution. He first burst onto the fake news scene through his close involvement in the Tawana Brawley case. Brawley was a young black girl who claimed to have been raped by bunch of powerful white racists. Her story was proven to be a hoax, a forerunner to the Jussie Smollett extravaganza, but it is never mentioned any longer in polite society. The fact that such an obnoxious race pimp is considered one of the top black American “leaders” tells us all we need to know about the state of race relations in this country.

The idea of paying black Americans who are alive today for something some of their ancestors went through 150 years or more ago is preposterous on the surface. The logistics here don’t seem to matter; all that is important is the emotion-driven, virtue signaling narrative. Who, for instance, would qualify to receive reparations? Would you have to prove that you had at least one ancestor who was a slave in America? What about all those who immigrated to America after slavery had been abolished? Would they still get paid just because of their skin color?

Just about 3 percent of Americans currently identify as multi-racial. Most of these have at least some portion of black blood in them. Would a half-black person get one half of whatever reparations are doled out? How about someone who had a black great-grandparent? Would they still get something, despite being for all intents and purposes white? How about all the blacks from South America, who obviously had no ancestors on southern plantations? Would they still somehow qualify?

Perhaps even more important is who would be paying these reparations. Simply assessing a special tax wouldn’t work, unless you exempted all black people from paying it. Would white immigrants who arrived at Ellis Island in the early 1900s have to pay for something their parents and grandparents had nothing to do with? How about Asians, middle easterners, and Hispanics? Their ancestors weren’t in America during the slavery era. Why should they pay reparations?

Then there is the inconvenient fact that, while the numbers vary according to source, only a tiny fraction of white people ever owned slaves in the United States. I know for a certainty, having mapped out my personal genealogy, that my ancestors never owned any slaves. Why should I have to pay? Why should any white people living today have to pay for something their ancestors had no connection to?

And then there is the philosophical question of why even descendants of white plantation owners should have to pay reparations to black people who have never been slaves. The sins of the father, and all that. The very concept is madness, and the fact it is being seriously considered reflects the insanity that has gripped much of the population. We expect our depraved cultural icons and corrupt “representatives” to promote awful ideas like this, but the general public ought to know better. After all, they are the ones that will be footing the bill.

Recent polls give reasonable people little cause for confidence. Some 25 percent of Americans expressed support for “financial compensation and government assistance” to the descendants of slaves, while 32 percent supported the notion that descendants of slaves are “entitled to reparations.” 64 percent of blacks supported reparations, while a surprising 37 percent of Asians and 42 percent of Hispanics did. Perhaps they believe they will be exempted from paying for it. Only 13 percent of self-described conservatives backed the idea, while 54 percent of liberals did.

Julian Castro, a former Obama cabinet member who is yet another Democratic party presidential candidate, blasted Bernie Sanders for his reluctance to endorse reparations. Castro told CNN, “I’ve long believed that this country should address slavery, the original sin of slavery, including by looking at reparations. If I’m president, then I’m going to appoint a commission or task force to determine the best way to do that.” Presumably, no “white nationalist” (which has come to increasingly mean anyone opposed to overt racial favoritism) will be on that commission.

Really, reparations is just the logical culmination of the new forms of discrimination, that were given a legal imprimatur with Affirmative Action. Most Americans don’t realize that “race norming” of qualification tests provided unimaginable assistance to blacks trying to get well-paid, benefits-laden government jobs. Quotas and Affirmative Action mandated that race, especially one particular race, was considered first and foremost for virtually every job in the work force. Don’t get caught without your “We are an equal opportunity employer” logo.

As I’ve noted before, slavery was an unfortunate reality all over the world for far too long. Dumbed down Americans, who know little or nothing of their own history, believe that it was a specific product of hissing, drooling, tobacco spitting white southern racists. They seem to care little about slavery outside of this Hollywood- driven fantasy, which explains their silence about the estimated 40 million slaves in the world today. 10 million of these are in India alone. Where are the demands from the social justice warriors for a boycott of India?

The reason why no one mentions modern slaves is because almost all of those enslaving them are nonwhite. That doesn’t fit the narrative. There must always be a white man to blame, and there are no available whites in places like India, North Korea, China, or Pakistan. This is also why feminists are silent about the abominable way women are treated in Muslim cultures, or by female genital mutilation in Africa. No whitey there either. Gay rights groups are just as close-lipped about the third-class citizenship gays enjoy in Muslim countries. Again, can’t blame a white for that.

Reparations will increase America’s divisiveness to the breaking point. This is what elites want- order out of chaos. Divide and conquer.

  1. Reparations have always been marketed with a goal that only specific “Non-Profit Action-Oriented Foundations” would receive the funds. That is to say, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and their fellow shake-down artists would get the billions and, I’m sure, spend it on appropriate things. The ordinary people would get nothing, and, as a consequence, find themselves outraged at the results: The blacks who were promised that justice would be served by defunding the culture of oppression they suffer simply by being born black would rightfully feel cheated. The whites who would fund the correction of their supremacy would not be permitted to finally put aside the so-called guilt of their privilege. But a few connected institutions WOULD be in a position to handsomely reward their political patrons with enormous campaign donations and an army of paid-for street-level operatives going forward.

  2. This WILL lead to Civil War 2….GUARANTEED RET US ARMY

  3. Your very thorough review did leave out one interesting fact: up to the Civil War, there were free blacks in America who owned slaves.

    Whose descendants are entitled to reparations in that case? And from whom?

  4. You don’t mince words and I concur with your assessment totally. Liberalism IS truly a Dangerous Mental Disorder. These people are our Enemy Within. Question is…..what are reasonable people going to do about it??
    .

    • Thanks. I’m not sure present-day Americans, reasonable or not, are capable of doing anything at this point. Normalcy bias and mass media programming has effectively desensitized most Americans to the tyranny and corruption of our leaders.

    Donny, congratulations on winning The Biggest Piece of Horseshit Award for April 2019.

    Every sentence in your dump exposes you, because of the extremity of your lies and the laughably one-sided “evidence” you present, as just another tree-swinging racist cocksucker. (Yes, Donny and all your white trash fans — all four of them — it is the racists who are the apes and the baboons.)

    Imagine in our current state of world shit bleating for paragraph after paragraph about REPARATIONS, as if that compares with Assange, Venezuela, endless terrorist attacks by racist shit like you against the most vulnerable, opiods, endless poverty, nuclear dick swinging, and dozens of other real issues. So why the focus and why now?

    Answer: Because anyone who would reduce an extremely complex issue such as reparations to:

    reparations = Al Fucking Sharpton

    is a racist dumbshit who knows who his readers are. (All four of them.)

    And please stop with your pathetic lies about the Civil War. You know as much about the Civil War as you do about how to date a beautiful girl. But hey:

    I WISH I WAS IN THE LAND OF COTTON
    OLD TIMES THERE ARE NOT FORGOTTEN
    LOOK AWAY
    LOOK AWAY
    LOOK AWAY
    DIXIELAND

    And let me know Donny boy when you’re next in NYC. Let’s meet up so I can knock all your teeth out.

    • I suppose it’s appropriate that you adopt a tough guy demeanor online, given the name you’ve adopted here. You aren’t too familiar with my work if you think I normally concentrate on this issue. I wrote an entire book about the disparity of wealth- “Survival of the Richest.” A seeming “liberal” like you should love it. I’ve also written quite a bit about the reprehensible treatment of Julian Assange, and I oppose U.S. involvement in Venezuela or any other sovereign nation. I wrote about reparations because it’s in the news and it’s an incredibly stupid, impractical idea which would only ratchet up the tremendous divisiveness in this country.

  6. Just heard you on C2C, great interview, looking forward to reading the book, and following your very interesting looking RSS blog feed. Thank you for having the courage to speak the truth.

  7. Hi Don. I am a 33 year old southern black college educated female and I have never heard the things about Lincoln that you just talked about on the coast to coast radio show! I was blown away! Why do you think there is such a watered down bullshit explanation of everything that occurs I. History? Why do many lies?

    • I especially value your input on this topic. Yes, Lincoln has been misrepresented by the same court historians who lie to us about everything else. I hope you’ll check out the book for more details. Thanks!

  8. I listened to coast to coast last night. So today I decided to google Don Jeffries. I came to this site. After reading several of his angry scattershot diatribes, it was very easy to sum up Don: I’m right, You all are wrong!

    Constitutionally, reparations should be a non-issue:
    https://fee.org/articles/reparations-would-cost-trillions-and-are-unconstitutional/

    “.. the federal government is not supposed to give an entire racial group special treatment, or make payments to it, just because different members of that group were mistreated in the past. That is considered an unconstitutional racial preference. ”

    “The Supreme Court has said that racial set-asides and other entitlements are only permissible to remedy the present effects of the government’s own widespread discrimination in the relatively recent past. .. It cannot provide race-based “remedies that are ageless in their reach into the past, and timeless in their ability to affect the future.” (See Richmond v. J.A. Croson Co., 488 U.S. 469, 497 (1995)).”

    “.. it was state governments in the South, not the federal government, that were primarily responsible for the existence of slavery. .. Even when federal officials in one state were in some sense complicit in discrimination against black people, that does not mean that the government can give blacks special treatment in an entirely different state. (See Western States Paving Co. v. Washington State Department of Transportation, 407 F. 3d 983 (9th Cir. 2005)).”

    “Even when the government is remedying the present effects of its own past discrimination, discrimination that happened more than twenty years ago is usually too far in the past to justify giving minorities special treatment today, according to the courts. (See, e.g., Brunet v. City of Columbus, 1 F.3d 390 (6th Cir. 1993) (court rules that gender discrimination that occurred 17 years earlier does not support affirmative action); Hammon v. Barry, 813 F.2d 412 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (court rules that racial discrimination that occurred 14 years earlier does not support affirmative action)). .. Segregation is further in the past than other instances of discrimination that the courts have said is too far in the past to support special treatment. (See the court rulings in Hammon v. Barry and Brunet v. City of Columbus).”

    “The fact that blacks are “underrepresented” in various occupations is not proof of discrimination, because racial imbalance is not the same thing as discrimination. (See Police Association of New Orleans v. City of New Orleans, 100 F.3d 1159, 1169 (5th Cir. 1996) (city could not promote blacks based on race “to give a better reflection of the racial composition of the city,” or “remedy racial imbalances in the police department”)).”

    “.. the government need only show a “prima facie” case of such discrimination, not smoking-gun evidence of it, to adopt race-based affirmative action. .. Most courts say that the government can use race-based affirmative action or other special treatment only to remedy intentional discrimination, not racially “disparate impact.” (See, e.g., Builders Association v. County of Cook, 256 F.3d 642, 644 (7th Cir. 2001); People Who Care v. Rockford Board of Education, 111 F.3d 528, 534 (7th Cir. 1997); Michigan Road Builders v. Milliken, 834 F.2d 583, 593 (6th Cir. 1987), aff’d, 489 U.S. 1061 (1989)). .. Also, widespread discrimination, not just a few individual instances of discrimination, has to be shown to justify using race, according to judges. (See, e.g., Middleton v. City of Flint, 92 F.3d 396, 405 (6th Cir. 1996)).”

    “Thus, slavery, which ended over 150 years ago, is not a basis for giving black people special treatment today. Nor is segregation. The Supreme Court declared segregation unconstitutional in 1954, over 60 years ago. (See Brown v. Board of Education (1954)).”
