Chuck Schumer’s racist attack on white people is about to cost the Democrats big time
Democrats’ embrace of identity politics just crossed the line.
And each day Democrats reveal themselves as the real party of bigotry and intolerance.
That’s why Chuck Schumer’s racist attack on white people is about to cost the Democrats big time.
The latest fad in Democrat politics is reparations for slavery.
Previously a fringe idea, redistributing wealth from Americans to the descendants of slaves is now growing in popularity on the Left.
And now Chuck Schumer is all on this racist scheme.
“Racism is the poison in America, it’s in the American bones, unfortunately,” Schumer said as voiced support for H.R 40, a bill championed by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) that would create a commission to study the issue of reparations. “The legacy of slavery and Jim Crow is still with us,” added Schumer.
The debate over reparations catapulted from the campaign trail to Congress last month when lawmakers heard testimony for and against the idea of providing compensation for slavery. On June 19th, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held a hearing on Jackson Lee’s bill. The panel invited 2020 White House hopeful Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Hollywood actor and left-wing activist Danny Glover, author Ta-Nehisi Coates, and others to discuss the measure re-introduced in January.
Booker, who testified first before the panel, said the country has “yet to truly acknowledge and grapple with the racism and white supremacy that tainted this country’s founding and continues to cause persistent and deep racial disparities and inequality.”
Schumer embracing this concept means whoever the Democrat nominee for President is will also throw their support behind this proposal.
And every controversial idea the Democrat candidate for President supports plays into Donald Trump’s hands in making the 2020 election a choice between competing visions for America.
