Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez floated one idea that had Black Lives Matter jumping for joy

Black Lives Matter is the most powerful political force in America at the moment.

This thrills Democrats who think they can ride that wave to victory in November.

And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez floated one idea that had Black Lives Matter jumping for joy.

June 19 is “Juneteenth,” which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.

The day took on added significance in the wake of the George Floyd riots and Democrats are now using the holiday to try and appeal to the protestors to get them to turn out and vote in November.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was at the front of his parade pressing Democrats to use Juneteenth to pass H.R. 40, which is legislation proposed by Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee to set up a commission to study how the United States government can pay reparations for slavery.

“To celebrate, let’s pass legislation that makes Juneteenth a national holiday and enact H.R. 40, Rep @JacksonLeeTX18’s Commission on Reparations,” Ocasio-Coretez.

Jackson-Lee’s legislation reads:

To address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery, its subsequent de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.

BET Founder Robert Johnson said this number should start at $14 trillion to be paid out to be approximately 40 million black residents in the United States.

This is a very controversial piece of legislation.

Many Americans oppose it as unworkable and unfair.

But there is little doubt that is Joe Biden wins the Presidential election it will be a top agenda item for Democrats.

    I AGREE. BLM IN MY OPINION WAS STARTED BY AND FUNDED BY THE DEMOCRATS.
    I SUPPOSE THE OBAMAS ARE WAITING FOR THEIR CHECKS TOO.. SINCE THEY STOLE SO MUCH MONEY WHILE IN OFFICE. BIG MISTAKE.
    THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST RIDICULOUS
    THINGS I HAVE EVER HEARD. EVERYONE HAS TO MEET THEIR MAKER.
    DO NOT FORGET THAT.

    Try this movement in China, your butts would be locked up. Worse yet, with the rioting and looting you all would be shot, no questions asked. If your not happy here, then Move Your Ass Away and stop causing violence and destruction. America is the Greatest Country in the World and if you don’t like our History, get over it and move out.

    So lets see the number of WHITE Americans fought and Died to end Slavery. For 110 years, the numbers stood as gospel: 618,222 men died in the Civil War, 360,222 from the North and 258,000 from the South — by far the greatest toll of any war in American history.

    But new research shows that the numbers were far too low.
    So i guess the WHITE descendants of those that died to free the slaves should be about 10 fold what today’s Blacks are asking, its only fair.

    The People – Who need to stand up and get rid of Cortez, Ohmar, Warren, & Walters …. the better this country is going to be. That is only getting rid of 4 Women, who don’t have a CLUE in Life. Those people that voted them into office should totally be ashamed of themselves, due to they just put themselves into the category of getting their brains from a “Rent a Brain” store and bought their brain from the Sub-Zero I.Q. shelf. When is all of this C _ _P…..going to end. Sad to say, but it is Not Going To End Well……………….. The Dumb A_ _ people of this country have caused all of this.
    AND – they don’t have the brains to even know it…………

  7. Paul Fishman says:

    Celebrating Juneteenth and the Second Civil War has come to take ALL of us back to slavery under terrorism. Only Some Black Lives Matter Movement is the new slave master along with ANTIFA as the other slave master to Make America Disgusting Again as their prerogative.

  8. Bob says:

    Anyone that was around at the end of the Civil War should be eligible for reparations…

  9. isau says:

  10. Betty says:

    The evil Democrats want to pay these reparations so they can make the black people their slaves. If black people think this money comes without a quid pro quo they are mistaken. They have freedom now and will be giving it up to the evil Democrats. We are all free now. Believe me all proud Americans black and white will fight for our freedom. The evil Democrats and BL M violent protesters and antifa will not win. TRUMP 2020

  11. Believer20 says:

    If paid,it goes to slaves only, decendents.

  12. Rocketman says:

    As a white man who had a great great grandfather who fought in the civil war and lost his leg at Shiloh in order to help free the slaves back then I’m just wondering how much money that BLM is going to give me for everything that my family did back then. Not one cent I’m betting.

  13. disgusted says:

    Absolutely not ! I am so sick of this black lives matter garbage. It is unbelievable how ignorant people can be. They have lost their freaking minds. EVERYONE that was ever connected to slavery is long gone. No one today has any right to compensation. How absurd and greedy can you get ? Keep in mind too that not every black in this country today had any slave ancestors. What ? We’re supposed to pay them because of the color of their skin ? And I think the only people in this country that are racist are the blacks. There were so many other nationalities that were enslaved too, but you don’t hear their ancestors whining about it and holding out their hands for a handout. This nonsense needs to stop. If they don’t like here, leave.

  14. Daxsdad says:

    All those in public office who really don’t like the country they live in need to leave. Let’s start with the democrat side of congress and senate. Then all the terrorists who have been rioting, looting, and killing, need to be shot. That would include those in public office who have been supporting and even inciting the terrorist violence.

  15. CM Devor says:

    No. The slaves that should get that are long gone and more than likely rolling over in thier graves at such immature and childish actions. BLM is degrading what the slaves worked for, common sense people. All living things matter. From the ant to the whale, from the red man to the white to the black Chinese and so forth. Jesus loves all the children– red and yellow black and white. People need to start using thier hearts and common sense. Do unto others as you want done to you.

  16. Lisa says:

    There is no reason we should pay anyone for slavery none of the people alive today suffered and shouldn’t benefit from someone else’s suffering. Nobody in my family had slaves so I am not paying anything for this bs. AOC is a moron who is so unhappy here she should really just leave the country, no one would miss her.

  17. DD says:

    She is so full of bullcrap, if any money should be given it would be to the Indians and Mexican people since it was both their land. She needs to keep her moth shut and learn her history,

  18. Martha Williams says:

    Maybe black lives matter needs to read a little history … Slaves of the U.S. came in every color–not just black but white, yellow, brown, and red. SMH. And not one slave then is still alive.

  19. Michael says:

    HELL NO!Just who in the hell would receive this landfall? There is not a single person alive today that was also alive between 1619 and 1865. Nobody! That includes not only the black, yellow, Irish, indentured servants. Nobody! Not one red cent should be given to these un-entitled people who claim they deserve what their ancestors endured. This bill is a none starter when it gets to the senate. Why do the Democrats waste our tax dollars and time with something they know from the git go will not pass?
