Obama suggests reparations to blacks, Native Americans (Hey Honkey, get yo wallet out!)
WND ^ | 7/30/2008 | WND

Posted on 07/31/2008 6:39:31 AM PDT by tobyhill

Sen. Barack Obama told a meeting in Chicago the U.S. should review how it can make amends for "offenses" committed during its history.

And one author is speculating that might even include reparations for al-Qaida soldiers, since, after all, they've been held in violation of their "rights."

Obama's comments came in a meeting with members of UNITY '08, an event for journalists who claim membership in various minorities.

Obama, according to the report in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, stopped just short of endorsing an official U.S. apology to various groups. He said instead the nation should acknowledge treating certain groups poorly.

Excellent, so, maybe the Italians and Romans, Greeks, Mongolians, Chinese, and Japanese can also pay for their past atrocities against the human race, enslaving people, and selling them during their empirical reigns?

Absolutely. He should be cornered on this and pushed on this as much as possible.

Ultimately he will throw the reparations movement under the bus like his grandmother, his pastor. his MC and everyone else who stands between him and the power he craves.

But before he definitively disavows reparations, he will make a large number of bogus, equivocal statements that can be used to destroy him.

And we all know that whether he fully disavows reparations or not, it will still be on his agenda if elected.

Reparations - Extortion paid by those who were never slaveowners to those who were never slaves.

“He said instead the nation should acknowledge treating certain groups poorly.”

Surely, in the future, once Whitey has been robbed of all of his cash, there will be reparations for us, too?

This guy is a complete poser!

Between this and his $800Bn “war on world poverty”, how much is Barak Obama going to cost the average white taxpayer?

Obama said, "The biggest problem that we have in terms of race relations, I think, is dealing with the legacy of past discrimination which has resulted in extreme disparities in terms of poverty, in terms of wealth and in terms of income. Our inner cities are a legacy of what happened in the past...

Oh, here we go again. The Jesse and Al Two-Step done to the "I'm a Victim" song, complete with blackface. Get over it. They trot out this excuse continually and consistently and we've thrown billions at the problem and they fritter it away.

Rather than blame your current state on events of 150 years ago, step up to the plate, admit you have some serious problems that you need to fix first, and then let's talk about additional help. We're done with the handouts, Obama, and trying to pander to these groups by passing out more of my money is disgusting. I'll be happy to give them a hand up when I see them working to solve their own problems, like ditching the victim mentality proffered by Jesse and Al. The handouts should end, let alone pay them more for something that transpired 150 years ago.

The problem is that the majority of his voting block want the free hand out and those who are not eligible, suffer from white guilt.

There is going to be NO cash given to anyone for exactly the reason that you point out. Who gets it? Who pays it?

No, what it will be is a tax increase, and some sort of bureaucratic program set up that will give money to the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Probably other leftwing orgs as well, like planned parenthood, etc.

That is how “reparations” will work.

He already has 98% of the black vote so what he's pulling is trying to pander to the White Guilt vote. He's telling the Whites that if they make one lump payment then the white guilt goes away and the vote in the congress apologizing for slavery was the first step to that one lump payment.
The other angle he will pull is that it will “only” cost Americans about $1 trillion dollars or 6% of the GDP, “about the same cost as the Iraq War”.

Very true.

I knew that it was only a matter of time before Obambi trotted out this issue. I personally believe that this is the primary reason why he's running for POTUS. I just can't get past his long time affiliation with Rev. Wright and the Black Liberation Theology he espoused.

We now know that decades of welfare, preferences and affirmative action in response to the last round of riots and threats has only resulted in demands for reparations.

Fool us once, shame on you - fool us twice ... well, you know.

Obama Hussein was never a slave and I never owned one so why does he think I should give him some money???

Did the racist extortionist also say how the black Africans who sold the US those slaves could make reparations?

In legitimately honest courts, reason prevails and individuals are judged innocent or guilty.

Meanwhile, individual innocence means nothing inside collectivist courts.

The concept of collective guilt defies reason; it is the essence of evil ... and wrong.

As I've said many times before, we need to be discussing civilizational royalties owed to whites. Every day, supposedly oppressed minorities take advantage of things such as written languages, the wheel, mathematics, the internal combustion engine, paved roads, television, radio, computers, airplanes, modern medicine, and countless other innovations that their own ancestors failed to come up with.

I think we should be able to charge civilizational royalties. Every time John Conyers turns on the radio to listen to Air America, for example, he should pay whitey a fee for A) inventing the radio, B) harnessing electricity, and C) producing the plastics and metals used in the radio itself. Of course, there are minute details that would add to the bill, such as comprehending the physics and chemistry involved, etc.
