Elizabeth Warren supports extending a form of reparations to yet another demographic viewed as supposed victims by much of the Democratic Party.
The Massachusetts Democrat and Presidential candidate has proposed paying back tax refunds to gay couples who filed taxes as single individuals before the government recognized gay marriages. Before the 2015 Obergfell v. Hodges judicial activist Supreme Court ruling, ‘married’ individuals in same-sex partnerships filed taxes as single people.
Warren claims that the government owes more than $50 million to gay couples who weren’t recognized as married, even though tax regulations had always recognized them as single. She’s proposed a “Refund Equality Act” that would allow gay couples to claim reverse back taxes from the IRS to make up for it.
The Massachusetts Senator had brought up legislation that would guarantee payments to gay couples in 2017 that wasn’t advanced. As President she would have greater latitude to pursue the idea.
Warren’s also endorsed reparations for descendants of slaves in the United States, an idea that seems to be catching on with force throughout the entire Democratic party.
Warren seems to be gaining an amount of traction in the crowded Democratic primary, siphoning support from democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. She’s been advertised as a Democrat with an ability to appeal to both to the left-wing and centrist neoliberal elements of the party that increasingly find themselves at odds over policy priorities.
In between reparations for descendants of slaves, reparations for gay couples, and the incredibly expensive “Green New Deal” that Warren has supported, it would seem that there will be little to no wealth remaining for the broader American people under her administration.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
