Ugh… John Conyers (D-Mi) Proposes Reparations

Ridiculous. Like we don’t have enough legitimate problems in this country, this fool wants to pay people for something they never suffered, at the expense of people who didn’t cause it.

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) introduced two reparations resolutions on the first day of the 113th Congress.

The first, H.R. 40, is β€œto acknowledge the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to examine the institution of slavery, subsequently de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.”

The second, H.R. 98, is β€œto provide a remedy for survivors and descendants of the victims of the Tulsa, Oklahoma Race Riot of 1921.”

    At least Conyers isn’t claiming that nonsensical ‘400 years of slavery’ crap I hear vomited up by the race zombies.
    I might argue with his idea that slavery started in 1619 btw… records show they were indentured servants but I’ll admit there’s a hell of a debate on that point as well.

    Well, what do you know? A child born in America today is born guilty or innocent based on his or her race. Nice.

    • notamobster says:

      Yep. Nothing like judging a man on the color of his skin as opposed to the content of his character. These race pimps make me sick.

    • Lai says:

      We are judged based on not only every action we’ve made, but every action that anyone in our family has made. We may have learned more, or accomplished more, but we are still tainted… It’s just convenient for their purposes.

      “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

      Yes; yes, you are. And your father’s, grandfather’s, so on and so forth.

    One word: Pigford

  4. Locke n Load says:

    Wait, there’s more…

    Women and Hispanic farmers denied loans? This is the whole ‘redlining’ myth being fastracked as reparations. Its fraud, nothing more. Funny how the reparations pile is bigger for the second ‘aggrieved’ group, no?
    Or something. Whatever.
    No wonder Conyers keeps submitting these bills year after year, he’s getting it all under the radar anyway. Might as well use Pigford and son of Pigford as precedent, right?

      pigford 2 millions paid out fraudulent as all hell, fast tracked by the won ten minutes after he was sworn in…fucking sickening that not one congressman has called it racial payola that it was/is.

    In researching or family history we found evidence that at one time Hannibal of Carthage sacked the suburbs where our ancestors lived We discovered that a distant relative named Poltroonicus Maximus was enslaved and made to shoveled elephant poop left behind by Hannibal’s Calvary. For many years thereafter our family, so indentured, shoveled crap for whomever was in power.
    I want reparations too. Who do I sue?

    I thought spending the country into destruction was called Cloward and Piven. Looks like it could have been Conyers and Piven. He’s jumped on the bandwagon.

  7. xenicalman says:

    I don’t understand why they are doing this since the Dems already have their votes.

  8. Ray Davies says:

    Hey,what about us Indians? You White people took out continent and what have you given us? Hell,you wouldn’t even let us become citizens and vote until the 30s. Reperations? Hell yes I want reparations and I want a hell of a lot of you White people to go back where you came from,and take the “Former Slaves” with you.

    • Locke n Load says:

      Ok, no problem. Totally onboard.
      One condition: first you make reparations to those poor Clovis culture victims you clearly displaced/slaughtered πŸ™‚
      Poor guys barely figured out flint, sheesh.

  9. R.D. Walker says:

    Some damned Prussians owe me something for what they did to my Bohemian ancestors during the Austro-Prussian War.

    Of course I also have an ancestor who served in the Prussian Army during that war.


    I think I owe myself reparations.

  10. Uke says:

    I’m pretty sure Russia owes me a lot.

    Like… a LOT.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Doubtless. Hell, I’d say your claim isn’t even bullshit.

      • Uke says:

        Perhaps, but things happen for a reason. If Russia hadn’t done what they did, my family might never have been so strongly compelled to flee to America.

        The threat of state executions, gulags and starvation are pretty strong motivators.
