‘Probably the Way People Talk:’ Pelosi Stumbles Through Defense of Tlaib’s Vulgar Comments

Published

on

In a Friday morning town hall with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stumbled through a defense of newly-minted Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s comments about impeaching President Donald J. Trump, which included calling Trump a “motherf*****”.

Here is the transcript:

Reid: So you’re not concerned at all about the way that the President’s base will react to the idea of an incoming Democratic Caucus coming in with the idea already pre-baked into the cake – they’re gonna go and get him, you guy’s are gonna go get him.

Pelosi: “You have to weigh the equities. Uh, hat is not the position of the House Democratic Caucus. Uh, and the equity to be weighed is that’s freedom of speech of an individual member. Uh, as I say, generationally, that would not be the language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it. I really don’t. I really don’t. That’s probably the way people talk around, uh, uh, um. Again, I’m a grandmother. It’s a different story. Um, but it, it is – it’s really – words have – weight a ton and the president has to realize that his words weigh a ton, too. And the – some of the words that he used has a direct impact on people’s lives. My colleagues’ comments do not have an impact on people’s lives.”

Democrat Black Farmers Bill Would Give Away $8 Billion of Land Yearly in Reparations Program

South Africa-style land redistribution?

Published

on

Democrat Senators are touting new legislation that would purchase national farmland and give it away to Black Americans for free.

Democrats Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are sponsoring the the Justice for Black Farmers Act, which seems likely to be the most wide-ranging affirmative action program ever enacted if it’s signed into law. It’s not inaccurate to call the bill a reparations program.

The law establishes preferences for Black Americans within Department of Agriculture policy. Blacks would be granted free land purchased by the federal government, in total increments that appear to add up to $8 billion a year.

An undersecretary of a USDA “Equitable Land Access Service” would be entrusted with purchasing(using taxpayer funds) and redistributing land. The reparation bill appropriates for a massive 20,000 grants annually over ten years, adding up to a total redistribution package of $80 billion.

The under-secretary would be commissioned to “(1) purchase from willing sellers, at a price not greater than fair market value, available agricultural land in the United States; and (2) subject to section 205, convey grants of that land to eligible Black individuals at no cost to the eligible Black individuals.

If the bill redistributes 160 acres per grant, it would ultimately end up transferring 1.6% of the total land in the continental United States for free.

Democrats cite a decline in the numbers of black farmers since the 1920’s as an impetus for the bill, pointing out that there were 1 million black farmers in 1920 and 50,000 today. Such logic ignores that the number of American farmers broadly has declined sharply as the United States transitioned to an industrial economy, and that millions of Black Americans who worked under poor conditions as sharecroppers in the American South have long since moved to northern cities.

The bill is somewhat similar to South African racial land redistribution policies, which differ primarily in that they forcibly nationalized land owned by Afrikaner farmers and redistributed them to South African Blacks. South Africa’s land reforms in the name of “equity” have proven to generally be a failure, with novel farmers unable to utilize the land they’ve been gifted in a manner beneficial to society. South Africa has transitioned from a bountiful agricultural society known as the “bread basket of Africa” to a net food importer, with experts pointing to arbitrary land redistribution as a factor in doing so.
