Reparations: Another Cynical Racial Ploy from the Democrats

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Human suffering knows no racial, ethnic, or religious barriers. As we all know, it's everywhere. But that doesn't stop the Democrats from ignoring the famous advice of Gandhi ("An eye for an eye and the world will die") and fanning those reparation flames again. In a nauseating display, one after the other of their 2020 candidates stepped forward to be blessed in his or her fealty to reparations by that racist of racists—who can forget Tawana Brawley—the Reverend Al Sharpton at his National Action Network convention in NYC. Watching the video of the event, you have the sensation you are watching a form of ritual dumb show.

The Left’s Latest Demand: Race-Based Reparations

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

One need not be a cynic to suspect Elizabeth Warren's motivation. Her claim to be an American Indian angered Native Americans, and she would like to mollify them, and ingratiate herself with African-Americans, who constitute more than 60 percent of all Democratic voters in the crucial South Carolina Primary. By pushing for compensatory reparations, Warren and Kamala Harris may be helping themselves, but they are further splitting their party along the lines of ethnicity and race and elevating an issue certain to divide their country more than it already is.
