Democrat Congress to Hold Reparation Hearings with Hollywood Actors and Social Justice Authors
Instead of solving problems for Americans, Democrats in Congress will be holding a hearing about slavery reparations featuring Hollywood stars and race-baiting social justice authors to create further divisions among the people.
The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties will hold the hearing next Wednesday with actor Danny Glover and author Ta-Nehisi Coates giving testimony.
The purpose of the hearings is supposedly “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is leading the charge, proposing a resolution calling for a study of reparations that was previously championed by now-retired Democratic Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).
Newly-elected Democrats, the radicalized women of color whose voices will not be silenced, are coming out in favor of a race-based handouts program.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the foul-mouthed Muslim pushing to impeach President Donald Trump, is working on a reparations bill, according to a post she made on Twitter last year.
I am on it. I would like to ask the incredible Rep. Maxine Waters or John Lewis if they would be introducing HR40 to give it the kind of weight it deserves. No matter, I am willing to.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-MI) is taking it a step further, arguing that Hispanic people ought to get reparations as well because of the economic injustice that white people are responsible for perpetrating upon all people of color.
“People think reparations is reparations for slavery, but really, economically speaking, reparations are for the damage done by the New Deal and redlining because that is where we saw a compounding of the existing inequity from the legacy of slavery, where we drew red lines around black communities,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“We said white communities will get home loans and they will get access to the basic bedrock of wealth in America and this will be your heirloom and we gave white America the heirloom that appreciated overtime — that people still benefit from today and we did not give to African-American and Mexican communities, Puerto Rican communities,” she added.
As Trump focuses on his agenda of jobs, trade and national security heading into 2020, the Democrats are increasingly embracing the extreme Left and stoking racial tensions before next year’s presidential election.
