Representatives John Conyers (D-MI) and Bobby Scott (D-VA) have once again introduced a Slavery Reparations bill into the US House of Representatives. In this incarnation, the foolishness is called House Resolution 40 (H.R. 40): Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act.
Time and again a subset of Blacks in America demand hand-outs from America for the oppression that their ancestors – some of them at least – suffered, and time and again the Black Democrats that they elect to the US House of Representatives try to get those hand-outs for them.
They’re lookin’ for a handout
To get somethin’ free
Lookin’ for a handout
From you and me
And with the consent
Of the president
They’re gonna get their way
It’s probably best just to laugh this off as another rendition of the same old political posturing that America has seen from these sorts year after year and year since the 1960s. But, just because we’re laughing and not getting too worked up over these attempts as racialist extortion, doesn’t mean that we should ignore them and not keep tabs on these people.
Individuals like John Conyers and Bobby Scott bear watching, as do their co-conspirators, Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-NY) , and Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL). They’re all cut from the same bitter, racist, White-hating, opportunistic cloth. They’re all looking for hand-out from the government and from the rest of us.
So get a bit of a chuckle out of their antics; it’s far better than getting angry at them as some have done. Anger just fuels their egos and incites them to keep doing things like H.R. 40. Laughter is best defense against their sort of thinly disguised thugs. But keep a weather eye on them, especially with our Liberal Congress…
