Conyers Reintroduces
Reparations Effort

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/4/2013 1:36:34 PM

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) introduced two reparations resolutions on the first day of the 113th Congress. The first, H.R. 40, is “to acknowledge 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 examine the institution of slavery, subsequently 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.”

Actually Mr. Conyers your folks have been getting reparations for 50+ years. Each now owes the taxpayer $1,782,339.00 for overpayment.

My ancestors were never slave holders. Some of my ancestors were abolitionsits.
Countless immigrants of european descent came to this country after the repeal of slavery, who were completely innocent. So are all their descendents. So why must we pay for the misdeeds of those who lived before 1865? Two injustices can never make a right.

what about all the "indentured servants that were "slaves" from Ireland, england and other European countries, that after 7 years of labor where suppose to be freed from their indentured servitude, but ended up slaves for life due to having to pay for food, board, and other living expenses and where never able to pay off their original debt.
reparations my butt, maybe this idiot should go back to where the original slave holders where that sold slaves live and go after them... you know other African tribes in Africa

The United States of America began on July 4, 1776. Between 1619 and 1776 the British were in control. Thus, reparations during that period should be paid by the British.

A few questions. Spain brought the first Africans here as slaves. Will they be forced to pay reparations? England, France, Holland? There were slaves in the colonies they owned. My grandmothers were both 30 years old before they got the right to vote. So before 1918, women had absolutely no say in what went on in this country. Anyone who has a woman as an ancestor should be exempt from paying reparations. How much money are we talking about? And will the money go directly to descendants of slaves or to ´community activists´ which means it goes directly into democrat party coffers.

One of the major things that historians cite as bad about slavery is the fact that occasionally fathers were sold apart from their families. That was, indeed, horrible. However, they at least knew who the father was (these days not so much) and families were sometimes reunited. Slaves got food, housing, clothes and medical treatment for which they were expected to do hard work. Sounds just like welfare recipients(of any color)today except the hard work is no longer a requirement. Many modern urban black people are still nothing more than slaves to the democrats for whom they vote. My tax dollars support them, therefore I am the one who should get reparations.

This kind of thing is incredibly toxic. It tends to confirm the very worst, ugliest stereotypes. Conyers may or may not be winning votes for himself by such irresponsible proposals; he is assuredly tearing at and further damaging an already frayed social fabric.

Obama has already started reparations with the $1 billion (so far) paid out to tens of thousands of blacks who claimed that they wanted to be farmers but that the Dept of Agriculture didn´t take seriously. The pigs came to the trough in Pigford I and Pigford II, and Obama was happy to feed them with few if any questions asked.

So go raise money for it privately, you [pre-deleted].

I never owned a slave. My family was in Europe when slaves were held here. All former US slave-holders are dead. All former US slaves are dead.

Why not just pull on a mask and pull out a gun, you thief? And if you want some money from my wallet, just stick your greedy, thieving hand in my pocket.

#11, I would argue that the date is 1787, the ratification of the Constitution. Prior to that we were no more than an upstart colony of the Crown, making our way TOWARDS a Country.

But I am all for Reparations: Seeing as how it has ALWAYS been the Democrats who defended the institution of slavery, gave us Bull Connor, The KKK, Jum Crow, Al Gore´s Dad who owns the longest fillibuster on record AGAINST the Civil Rights Act, Welfare etc......each and every Democrat should be stripped of their citizenship and deported.

The Democrat Party was the party of the Slave Owner.

Democrats included their support for slavery and the expansion of slavery in their party platform.

Democrats tore our nation in two and went to WAR in DEFENSE of slavery.

After failing in war, Democrats founded and controlled the Ku Klux Klan as their party´s domestic terrorism wing.

Democrats gave us Jim Crow.

Democrats gave us the Poll Tax.

Democrats turned dogs and hoses on the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King.

It was Democrat Governor George Wallace who blocked black students from entering the schoolhouse door.

I think the Democrat Party owes reparations to Black America, as well as a formal apology.

The Republican Party was founded by fifty men determined to END SLAVERY.

John Conyers wants to re-introduce slavery here in the US?

Because that is what would have to be done first, for any former slave to get reparations.

The SLAVES would get the reparations, not the descendents of the slaves. Except perhaps in certain households of a certain religion, there is no slavery in the US.

Shar´ia law, however DOES permit the keeping of slaves, and even provides some very precise rules pertaining to the care and treatment of slaves. But nowhere is there mention of reparations for former slaves.

American blacks should be on their knees thanking God that their ancestors were slaves. Otherwise, instead of free housing, food, utilities, medical care and 0bamaphones, they´d be squatting in the jungle eating termite larvae, dying of AIDS or being hacked up by machete courtesy of a neighboring tribe. Or they would be enslaved by Muslims.

We spent years trying to be equal and for a long time we were all Americans, now it´s a free for all. Zippy has set this country back 50 years. Pigford has started an avalanche.

If you can find a living slave and you can find the owner, get back to US.

Never does this group acknowlege anything but African slaves. How ignorant.

Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could
