Americans consistently hear tropes from elected Democrats and white-guilt ridden sociology professors over our country’s supposedly “racist” prison system. It is often referred to as “the new Jim Crow” by alleged scholars who claim that proportionate to population, black Americans are imprisoned at a vastly higher rate than any other race.
The intricacies of that debate aside, President Donald J. Trump undertook a project not even attempted by President Barack H. Obama, or any other since President William J. Clinton implemented mandatory minimums and harsh prison sentences for non-violent offenders in the 1990’s. The First Step Act, bipartisan legislation which passed a House vote last week and has been touted by Trump will help alleviate the concerns of those who believe that the criminal justice system is too harsh.
“Thousands of federal prisoners would have access to more help preparing for life after the end of their sentences. Thousands of well-behaved prisoners would win freedom earlier. And thousands of people who are arrested for drug crimes in the future would become eligible for exemptions from harsh mandatory minimum sentencing laws,” according to an NBC article on the legislation.
One might think that those Democrats in Congress – especially the black Democrats – constantly banging away about “racist America” and “racist Trump” would support such legislation if the prison system truly is a racist institution. But some did not. Here are the black Democrats who voted against reforming the “racist” prison system:
- Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who once called Trump a divisive and shameful racist.
- Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), supposedly one of last great fighters for civil rights left in Congress, who has publicly called for criminal justice reform.
- Rep. David Scott (D-Ga.), who chided the 2018 Farm Bill as “racist.”
- Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), who has maligned Trump voters as “xenophobic” and called Trump a “white nationalist.”
- Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), who has called Trump racist on multiple occasions.
- Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), who said Trump’s words “ring hollow” when he denounces racism. (How about yours, Congressman?)
- Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.), who said Trump was “unfit for office” because he was a racist.
- Rep. Donald Payne (D-N.J.), who called Trump’s entire agenda “racist” and “vengeful.”
- Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), who has accused Trump of racism.
- Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), who wanted to impeach Trump over an alleged “racial slur.”
The bill passed the House overwhelmingly. In fact, the list of Congresspeople above represents part of the only 14% of House members who voted against it. Are they interested in tackling America’s alleged racism in America, or are they simply using the idea of a racist America to score cheap political points against Trump?
You decide. But remember how they voted when it came to the issue of the American prison system – the “new Jim Crow” – next time they drone on about racism.”
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
