Reparations: The Holy Grail Of Identity Politics (Part II) – Bookworm Room

Part 2 is a short history of slavery.

It requires incredible historic ignorance to condemn our Founding Fathers for owning slaves in the 18th century.  To the contrary, while by today’s standards we see their ownership of slaves as an atrocity, those are today’s standards and not applicable to other historical periods — unless you are a neomarxist proggie who wants to claim faux victimhood status.  The truth is that it was the colonists alive at our Founding who, for the first time in all of human history, began to battle successfully against the institution of slavery as immoral and incompatible with the Jewish and Christian religions.

“Incredible historic ignorance” is exactly what the Democrat Party and the National Education Association are all about. They’ve been incredibly successful at it too.

Reparations: The Holy Grail Of Identity Politics (Part I) – Bookworm Room

Bookworm is doing a multi-part series on reparations.

Let us begin with the underlying moral and legal principle that each individual is responsible for his or her actions, and the sins of the father are not visited upon the son. This is a principle that first appears in the Bible…

Quote from Ezekiel 18:20 follows.

Before the Enlightenment, British monarchs often violated this moral and legal principle. These monarchs used Bills of Attainder to extort property and impose “corruption of blood.”…

Our Founders thought these acts so repugnant and immoral that they outlawed them — including imposing penalties for infractions only declared criminal by subsequent law (ex post facto laws) in the body of the Constitution itself, both at federal and state law, and for any crime, including treason.

See Article One, Sections 9 and 10, and Article Three, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution.

Read the whole article.

Leftist Hoaxes: A Failure to Understand the Right

This is profoundly dangerous to us all. Because, not knowing us, they cannot understand where the limits are. They’ve been butting up near our maximum levels of tolerance for some time now. Sooner or later, one of them is going to exceed that boundary because he doesn’t even know it’s there, anymore.

Amen.

Pelosi threat: Democrats could declare national emergency to enact gun control

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said President Trump’s plan to use a national emergency declaration to unilaterally provide federal funding for a border wall would set a precedent Republicans may come to regret.

Democrats, she said, could use it later to enact their own priorities, such as increasing gun control

And that would cause the national emergency as my guns would be ‘weapons free’ and ‘shoot on sight.’

Democrats are enemies of the Constitution and the U. S. of A.

Cory Booker: Planet Cannot Sustain People Eating Meat – Moonbattery

Booker told the vegan magazine VegNews earlier this month that he became vegan after coming to the realization that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.”

So it’s a religious thing with ‘Fartacus‘…

While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.

Nudged? Now he wants to impose his religion on others.

Liberals Trying To Kill Electoral College Without Constitutional Amendment – The Lid

So, the even bigger problem here is that if the liberals succeed in their plan to dismantle the Electoral College – the votes of a few states will determine the presidency instead of the votes of a majority of the states. Hillary built an insurmountable popular vote lead of 8.6 million votes on only five states; CA, NY, IL, MA, and MD. The Democrats are very well aware of this, which is why they are fighting hard to get rid of the Electoral College.

What we have here is bullying. The big states are trying to bully the small states.

De Blasio on Amazon HQ: Must ‘Hold Their Feet to the Fire’ on Progressive Values

“We want to see jobs for public housing residents, we want to see unionized employees in the distribution centers, and we’re going to fight for that.”

Progressive values? Examples:

• Negative right to life.

• Negative right to free speech.

• Negative right to freedom of religion.

• Negative right to freedom of association.

• Negative right to keep and bear arms.

Progressive values are negative values.
