I find it absolutely amazing that a Muslim woman supports reparations for descendants of African slaves in the US, but she doesn’t want Muslims to pay the restoration. After all, it was Muslims, many black Muslims, who captured Africans and used them in the Arab world as slaves or sold them to white Europeans, who then sold them to slave owners in Europe and the US. Yet, she is pushing it just as hard as some racist blacks and socialists Democrats in Congress, and as part of what she calls “restorative justice,” Rashida Tlaib wants those descendants, who’ve never been slaves a day in their lives, to receive payments from people who’ve never been slave owners a day in their lives.
In a brief interview with Nicholas Ballasy, Tlaib expressed her support for these unjust, immoral and unconstitutional reparations.
Watch the interview.
Ballasy asked the Michigan congresswoman, “I’m just going to ask you about your tweet regarding the reparations hearing. What do you hope is the next step coming out of the reparations hearing that was done yesterday?”
“I hope there is a serious conversation about voting on reparations,” Tlaib said. “H.R. 40 has been introduced by a predecessor for decades, Congressman Conyers. That is something that is very important to my district. This is an incredibly important issue.”
“If you think about any work on immigrant rights, on civil rights, on labor rights, it’s always started in Detroit,” she said. “This is something that is very rooted in trying to combat what’s happened and continues to happen with black Americans not being actually able to get on the same level after slavery.”
Does Tlaib know anything? Detroit? Seriously? I just have to shake my head at the utter stupidity.
Furthermore, why doesn’t Tlaib take a portion of her own earnings and start just doling it out to people who push this nonsense, like Conyers and others. I mean if it means so much to her, why not lead it without government force? Oh, that would mean you have to actually give your own money away and not someone else’s.
Furthermore, has she not witnessed many black Americans doing just fine in a variety of fields, whether in medicine such as Dr. Ben Carson, or people like Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell or Candace Owens?
Has she forgotten where the usurper Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah and his author wife, Michelle, are financially?
Perhaps she has missed the myriad of black American sports players, actors, comedians and businessmen and women who have been successful.
Those people, instead of whining about what happened nearly 200 years ago, put their best foot forward and pursued a dream.
Ballasy continued, “Some witnesses at the hearing mentioned direct payments. Others mentioned investing in African-American communities around the country. What would you support? Direct payments to individuals who are descendants of slaves?”
“I support any opportunity for restorative justice and that can come up all above in some instances, but I think there’s a serious conversation happening in committee and I hope it continues to happen regarding reparations,” Tlaib said.
“But I guess it should be determined by all of us, and I can tell you at home, it is direct payment that people want to see but also increased access to higher education, to real equitable funding in education systems, right now, across the country.”
These people all have access to higher education. That isn’t an issue. In fact, blacks are often pushed ahead of whites to fill a quota mandated by an immoral government not based on academics, but on affirmative action.
Tlaib’s hypocrisy is astounding as it was her own Muslim ancestors who began the slave trade.
Tlaib is interested in the very same thing all totalitarian minded people are interested in, using other people’s money to secure votes for themselves by giving away goodies to people, and those on the receiving end actually think it will make their lives better. It won’t, and it shouldn’t.
