Pelosi and the Dims want a “national apology to repair the lingering effects of slavery"
Okay, I'll bite. What are the "lingering effects" of slavery, an institution which the USA abolished 154 years ago?


quote:

WASHINGTON — With the support of a string of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, the idea of reparations for African-Americans is gaining traction among Democrats on Capitol Hill, where Speaker Nancy Pelosi backs the establishment of a commission that would develop proposals and a “national apology” to repair the lingering effects of slavery.

Nearly 60 House Democrats, including Representative Jerrold Nadler, the powerful chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, support legislation to create the commission, which has been stalled in the House for 30 years. The bill will be the subject of a hearing on Wednesday — the first congressional hearing on reparations in more than a decade, and the first on the measure itself.

What about reparations to white people for putting up with bitching and complaining about something that our ancestors did 200 years ago?

If they really want to apologize for anything, they should apologize for their own Great Society which has kept blacks in poverty and prevented them from leaving the Democrat plantation for 55 years.

Where can you spend an apology?

Ahh the perpetually triggered group.

Once you pay out, the Dems would claim it's not enough. Rinse and repeat.

I could've sworn that Bill Clinton already did this.

What's really funny is, the people like Pelosi who need to perpetuate racial identity politics are the last one's who want racial harmony. Everybody here should know that race relations were 100X better 12 years ago than they are now. What happened to make things so much worse?

3 words. Barack Hussein Obama.

Mitch McConnell for the win:

quote:

“I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago, for whom none of us currently living are responsible, is a good idea,” Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, told reporters on Tuesday. “We have tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation, elected an African-American president. I think we’re always a work in progress in this country, but no one currently alive was responsible for that.”

Obozo did enough apologizing during his 8 years.

I agree to apologize to any person who can prove he was a slave as of the date of the Emancipation Proclamation.

What does an apology do? I fail to understand the logic behind this. Who does not acknowledge that slavery is evil and wrong? Who does not acknowledge that blacks were harmed physically, psychologically and economically by this evil institution? The question is, what kind of justice are you going to create 150 years on? A buy off? Is that justice, or is that vengeance?

Ok.

It's like," how many times do I need to apologize to the wife about the same issue before she moves on?"

Apologize for what? And to whom?

No one in this country:
Was a slave
Owned a slave
Supports slavery

This is why this fricking division never dies

Not until they admit their own party supported slavery and Jim Crow, fought against civil rights, founded the KKK, fought against equality of women, admit the big switch was a big lie, and that while they vehemently oppose any confederate statue or former slave owner they proudly support a statue of the great pro-slavery, Chicago native Stephen Douglas.

Maybe after all that I will issue an apology for something I, nor my ancestors had anything to do with.

It needs to start ( and end ) with the Democrt party as they were the slaveholders, not the Republicans.

I think we should all sign a petition that forces these pandering, placating fools to:

1- watch this. and

2-move on and cease race baiting and the BCC-- until they act like non racist adults.

Man. They are doing everything possible to push the moderate Midwestern whites to the Rs. Whomever is pulling the strings for the Dems is making some critical strategic errors.

Nancy and her dimwitted group will talk about ANY topic OTHER than issues that need to be addressed to pander to voters and distract. Hey nancy how about work on immigration reform or work on cutting spending.
