The next absurd and extreme goal the Democrat Party is set to tackle is to force American tax payers to pay “reparations” to non-existent “victims” of slavery… you know, that “peculiar institution” that has been dead for over 150 years, now? Yeah, that one.
The goal of forcing America to implement a program of paying “reparations” for slavery is just the latest on the far left’s long-term game plan, but it is far from the first time liberals have succeeded in forcing some extreme idea on the U.S.
This “reparations” idea has been a pipe dream of the left’s for decades and at least once a quarter some black politician or another comes out to push the idea. But, according to plans discovered by the Washington Free Beacon, it looks like sectors of the Democrat Party are really going for broke and are set to make it a major issue at long last after decades of just pushing it along as a mere “hope.”
As the Beacon found, a very high-dollar group of Democrat activists called Democracy Alliance is looking to push “reparations”:
The desire was stated in the invitation for a Monday reception during the annual spring gathering, which was attended by top Democratic Party officials such as DNC chairman Tom Perez, former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, and Reps. Raul Grijalva (Ariz.) and Mark Pocan (Wis.).
The reception, “Way to Win: 2022 Victory Party,” was presented as a look forward at what’s possible if Democrats can be effective in coming elections.
“It’s 2022 and we are celebrating policy victories across the nation: Medicare for All and Free College, and next on the agenda is Reparations,” the group projected, according to an invitation to the event.
“Take a ride in our time machine to hear from the true political geniuses who made this happen,” it says.
Other goals included “free tuition for all” and 100% government-controlled healthcare.
Until now, “reparations” was always just one of those things Democrats – especially black Democrats — have said in a game-playing way to signal to minorities that they “care.” It was always just one of those slogans liberals throw around while they are doing Howard Dean screams during campaign rallies. Or, one of those things they say when they are trying to sound like they are down with the struggle. But this effort marks the first time a serious push for the idea has emerged.
Still, don’t laugh this off. Even if they don’t succeed in getting reparations this time, that won’t mean that they will hang up their guns in that war. Indeed, it will just be the next step toward winning.
After all, unlike Republicans, Democrats know how to play the long game. And so far they have won on every issue they have pushed by simply refusing to accept the will of the majority — or the will of the voters — and by gnawing on the idea like a dog with a bone.
Gay marriage is a perfect example of this. When the left first began pushing gay “rights” back in the 1960s they said that all they wanted was for gays to be able to live their lives and love who they choose. But one thing the left always said at that time was that they never wanted to push gay marriage.
For decades liberals waved off the concerns of regular voters that they eventually wanted to tear down the definition of marriage so that gays could wed. It was absurd, they said, to think that gay marriage was their ultimate goal. Don’t worry, they said. We would never push for something as crazy as gay marriage, they assured everyone.
But once homosexuality became normalized, what was the next thing they pushed for? Yep. Gay marriage. But, as they pushed for gay marriage, they told us that they didn’t want to go any farther to normalize other sexual proclivities that used to be called mental disorders.
Guess what came next? After they got gay marriage forced on America by the courts, they began an all out push to normalize “transgenderism.” Soon they were jamming that idea down America’s throats using left-wing government entities and pliant, liberal courts. Worse, their battleground shifted to our children and our schools. And they have essentially won this battle too.
Next the left will be pushing man/boy love, the sort advocated by the child molesting group NAMBLA. Mark my words, that is the left’s ultimate goal.
They won these battles because they know how to keep attacking until they wear down the nation. They win by pushing the idea on children until those children grow up to be adults who will pliantly vote the left’s way because they have been indoctrinated since kindergarten on the “proper way to think.”
Now, regardless of what you may think about homosexuality itself — reasonable minds may differ — I use the left’s campaign to sanctify gays, push for gay marriage, then their efforts to approve transgenderism, as an example of how the left just keeps barreling down the road of its agenda against all odds. Because, remember, all through this campaign, voters opposed their moves. Voters continually voted against gay rights, voted against gay marriage, and have voiced concern over the transgendering of our children. But liberals don’t care about democracy. They care only about their extreme agenda.
Gays are not the only recipient of the left’s success. Tobacco has been a target of elimination, and the left has nearly won that battle. And right now liberals are in the process of indoctrinating the nation against guns so that in the future they will have convinced enough people to eliminate the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Slave reparations is only another one of those battles that the left will continue to pursue until they have indoctrinated enough young people to accept the concept and then vote away their rights in the future.
Sadly, thanks to the fecklessness of the Republican Party and the weakness of “conservatism,” they will likely win, too. Unless you folks out there stand up and fight.
