If Socialists and Communists want to play the “reparations game,” they need to recall all that the world could hold them accountable for in history
Democrat Party leaders who are proud of their heritage, need to seriously take responsibility for the crimes of their ancestors, which amazingly seems to be what they are calling for as their Party is demanding reparations be paid for the price of slavery – especially that which is “systemic racism.” The free-for-all in the herd of the twenty-odd Democrat “leaders” were clamoring for public attention last year in their “race” to get their Party’s nomination to run for POTUS, were all demanding that reparations be paid to descendants of slaves. What a way to pander to the Blacks for their votes.
Democrat Party has violence in its political DNA, and the Ku Klux Klan was just a formal terror arm of the defeated Confederacy
This has persisted despite the lack of logic or the nightmarish logistics of such an insane effort. Yet, it could drum up a few votes from those low information voters that still do not know that the major resistance to ending slavery was from the “Democratic” Party that had an entire region of the nation under the domain of slavery – even after most northern states abolished slavery. In fact, the deaths of many white soldiers who fought in the Civil War that slavery would end is on the heads of the Southern Democrats who changed their name to the Confederate States of America, So, if these calls for reparations are real, which it appears they are nothing more than a political tool, the real reparations should also include payment for the lives of those soldiers of the Army of the Republic who died fighting to defend the Constitution and to expand freedom to the Blacks held in slavery by the Democrats of the Deep South.
As long as the Democrat leadership is coming around to accepting financial responsibility for slavery, there are a few other reparations that should be tallied up for the Democrats to be held accountable for as well the “peculiar institution of slavery” as Democrat Alexander Stephens of Georgia referred to it. Stephens was the former Vice President of the Confederate States of the Union, and a serious proponent of institutionalized, systemic racism. The Democrat Party has violence in its political DNA, and the Ku Klux Klan was just a formal terror arm of the defeated Confederacy. Long before the Klan, Southern Democrats were “arranging” for Yankee abolitionists to be threatened, roughed up, or even murdered for their printed opinions against the slave system of the Democrat-run South.
The Democrats used labor union thugs to perpetrate violence in a similar way to accomplish specific tasks to coerce or intimidate citizens and bend their will to the will of the Democrat-backed unions. It was a symbiotic relationship as hardworking employees of large companies were coerced to pay the union dues, and for the most part, those union dues, went to support (read buy) Democrat officials or higher level candidates. Political “favors” were the rule rather than the exception. A classic example is the real origin of Labor Day as a federal holiday. It was born of severe violence from the American Railway Union strike. It was the inception of the marriage of Big Labor to Democrat politics. Is it not right that the Democrats assume the responsibility for all the violence and the serious destruction of property that union strikers and rioters have caused since 1893?
Violence being carried out by the anarchists, Antifa terrorists, and BLM Blackshirts
In the same vein, the violence being carried out by the anarchists, Antifa terrorists, and BLM Blackshirts in the major cities run by Democrat mayors or Democrat-run city councils should incur a great deal more accountability than the taxpayers having to pay for the damages. The leadership in those cities show culpability, and even outright support of the violence. Those leaders who have had an obvious causal relationship to such blatant violence should be sued and citizens should not only seek monetary damages, but in more flagrant instances, some mayors or city council members need to be prosecuted for aiding and abetting criminals committing crimes against the public. Voting such elected officials out of office will not curtail such a cycle of systemic disregard for regular citizens. It is such systemic lawlessness that absolutely needs to be stopped now.
Additionally, the damages to the stores and businesses that were destroyed because the Democrat mayors or Democrat city council members held back their city’s police forces, or ordered the police to stand down and essentially be impotent in the face of mass lawlessness, violence and destruction in the inner city areas. Such Democrat “leaders” need to be held financially accountable. Truly, they should be sued just as medical doctors are sued for malpractice. These so-called community leaders have been masquerading as people who would uphold the law, specifically to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, as well as the constitutions of the states in which they preside. If it takes citizen groups to form to effectively support the efforts of law enforcement in their cities until order can be restored it may need to happen. “Leaders” who fail to uphold their oaths of office need to be arrested and held accountable for crimes against the citizens who pay their salaries.
In fact, withholding of the salaries of such irresponsible “leaders” should be a possibility or option available to citizens who have had enough. The contracts that city officials sign for their positions, as they are employees of the citizens who rightfully pay taxes, should include provisions for dereliction of their duties as public servants.Salaries could be withheld and even recourse could be made for reparations made by such Democrat officials who think they are being clever by letting mob violence deliver a political message to all observers. Such inaction and ineptness should no longer be viewed as acceptable by “We the People.” And, if Democrat leaders want to make reparations some political ploy, and if they want to have reparations for something as far back as the 1800s, then there should be no statute of limitations on the severe property damage, destruction of businesses, and even the deaths of innocent citizens caused by the indifference or “malpractice” of such elected officials.
People’s “Republic” of China should be held accountable for the dreaded COVID-19
Even more importantly, it is much more a tragedy of Democrat leaders of states as well as leaders in cities that allowed serious harm to come to the elderly and most at-risk people during the height of the COVID-19 influx. Governors like Andrew Cuomo of New York and Gavin Newsom of California need to be investigated and held accountable for negligence in committing senior citizens to senior centers where known communicable health hazards were rampant and where multiple deaths were common. Those governors who made such decisions to forcibly confine such seniors to facilities in which they would be more likely to die from COVID-19 should be sued for negligence just as any doctor could be sued for malpractice. Such actions are comparable to criminal activity as much as those who are charged with negligence for wrongful deaths. Individuals who claim to be “leaders” need to be sued, or even charged with criminal intent for such actions.
On the ultimate level, if Democrats, who are exercising their socialist ideologies in allowing harm to come to American citizens, agree to be held accountable for their actions (or inactions), then it should also follow that “Mother China” should be held accountable for all of the COVID-19 related deaths in the United States and throughout the world. If wrongful death suits or war reparations are legitimate ways to recover from intent or criminal negligence, then the People’s “Republic” of China should be held accountable for the dreaded COVID-19. If Socialists and Communists want to play the “reparations game,” they need to recall all that the world could hold them accountable for in history.
