Julian Castro Doubles Down on Reparations for Descendants of Slaves in Town Hall

The Texas Democrat is making reparations for slavery a prominent campaign promise.

Published

on

Texas Democrat Julian Castro staked out his position as one of the most visible members of his party standing behind the idea of providing reparations to descendants of slaves in America, speaking in a town hall event live on CNN on Thursday night. The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development is running for President.

Castro had previously proposed creating a “task force” that would merely study the potential for a reparations program, without expressly endorsing a policy outcome. His comments on Thursday possibly represented his strongest endorsement of a reparations program yet.

Possibly seeking to appeal to the electorally powerful African American demographic in the Democratic Primary, Castro seems to be the candidate most willing to endorse the concept of reparations, although he remains vague about what exactly descendants of slaves, who were emancipated 154 years ago in 1865, are going to get. Castro has attacked de facto Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders for his reluctance to take up the issue.

It’s no wonder Castro is extremely vague about any potential plan to make reparations to descendants of slaves- such an idea would be extraordinarily difficult to execute in policy. A great deal of Americans with family history dating back to the 1800’s and 1700’s are related to black individuals who were enslaved. It’s unclear if Castro would seek to provide cash payments exclusively to census-identifying African Americans.

There’s been a great deal of oppression throughout the history of humanity, and a considerable amount in the United States leveled out to slaves. Creating a standard in which the descendants of victimized individuals are entitled to reparations for wrongdoings that occurred more than 150 years ago could ostensibly entitle nearly everyone on the planet to compensation for historical crimes. 360,000 soldiers of the Union Army, who were almost entirely white, died in the Civil War to bring about an abolition of slavery and create a better future for the United States. It’s unlikely Castro’s call for reparations would recognize this sacrifice.

Castro may have been inspired to adopt ethnic-greviance politics from his mother, a political activist associated with the political party Raza Unida, or “United Race,” a revolutionary Chicano nationalist group seeking to organize Hispanics on the United States along ethnic lines.

Joe Rogan Endorses Donald Trump Over Joe Biden, Citing Cognitive Decline

Rogan was previously a Bernie Sanders supporter.

Published

on

Podcaster Joe Rogan appeared to implicitly endorse Donald Trump for President during his Saturday podcast with Eric Weinstein. Rogan cited what he identified as Biden’s obvious cognitive decline in refusing to vote for the Democratic Party’s elder statesman.

This is the real issue with the Democratic Party… They’ve essentially made us all morons with that Joe Biden guy. I can’t vote for him. I’d rather vote for Trump than him.

We don’t even know what the f*** he’s going to be like after a year in office.

Rogan has consistently sounded the alarm on the question of Joe Biden’s mental acuity, frequently pointing to the Democratic frontrunner’s many instances of confusion and questionable awareness during his extremely limited schedule of media and campaign events.

Joe Biden has forgotten what office he’s running for in a campaign event in South Carolina, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence within the past two decades.

Establishment Democrats were quick to jump out of the woodwork in condemning Rogan, pointing to him as a toxic Bernie Sanders bro dangerously refusing to obey the imperative to ‘vote blue’ with the sole objective of defeating Donald Trump.

Rogan had previously endorsed Bernie Sanders. It appears probable that he’s the most prominent Sanders-to-Trump voter in America, considering his podcast is consistently the most viewed example of the content format. Mainstream Democrats had consistently written him off as some sort of fringe figure, disregarding that he’s by all accounts one of the most influential public speakers in America.

Up to 15% of Bernie Sanders supporters are currently planning on eschewing the low-energy Biden campaign and voting for Donald Trump in the November general election. Unfortunately for establishment Democrats keen to demand strict obedience of any nominally progressive voter, they’ll have to right to vote for a candidate of their choosing as American citizens.
