NFL legend Herschel Walker argued against reparations for black Americans at a congressional hearing, saying: 'Slavery ended over 130 years ago.'Walker made his case to members of the Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties who met via Zoom on Wednesday to discuss House Resolution 40, which aims to 'establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery'. The athlete, who played for the University of Georgia and won the Heisman Trophy in 1982 before going pro, asserted that compensating black Americans for the lasting impacts of slavery

When the Democrat party seeks forgiveness for the practice and its support of slavery, we can talk.

Reparations have been paid in blood by the 600,000 men who died fighting the Civil War. Reparations have been paid by the billions or trillions in welfare payments and benefits since the 1960s. Enough is Enough.

It’s the Democrats who should be paying any reparations as they were the political party of the slavers. My ancestors were in the Union Army that fought to free the slaves, so I don’t think that I owe anyone any reparations. If you go back far enough in time there are probably just as many White folks in the USA whose ancestors who were treated worse in their home countries than Black slaves were in the USA. Maybe Instead of apologizing to Europe and other places on behalf of the USA, Biden should be demanding that the decedents of the people who were mistreated in those countries and who are now in the USA be paid reparations. fat chance!

My ancestry is Mennonite/Amish on my father’s side. It is German immigrants in Kansas on my mother’s side. No reparations are coming out of my pockets. The blacks have tunnel vision to think all whites are descendants of slave-owners.

My objection with the call for reparations is that you cannot force the past to be viewed through the lens of today’s culture. You must examine the history and culture of the times. Humans have been used as a commodity from the beginning of time and it is still going on. Most every race on the planet has been guilty of this terrible inhumanity. I challenge these advocates of reparations to look toward countries who now are active in the slave trade if they want to really make a difference. Women, children and men are being sold today and forced into horrible living situations. It would seem to me that those whose families had been touched by this abomination would be the first to stand against this horror. Freeing individuals would be a more productive thing to do and yet, we ignore the suffering in other countries. Maybe it’s time these people who are interested in reparations do something about those unfortunate people who are actually living a life of slavery.

A man purporting to be a U.S. history teacher noted in a now-deleted TikTok video several of his Gen Z didn’t know who Adolph Hitler was and believed that disabilities advocate Helen Keller was a “Nazi.”In addition, one student believed that “D-Day,” — the June 6, 1944, Allied invasion of Europe during World War II — was a rap artist.At the start of the video, the teacher asked his middle-school students if they knew of Keller (above, in 1905), who lost her sight and hearing after suffering an illness at the age of 19 months.“Helen Keller is the Nazi guy,” said one. “He’s like a terrorist.” (Tweet/Video)

The once-great Washington Post is now just another outlet of Newspeak.In an Orwellian twist, the Jeff Bezos-owned paper has morphed “kids in cages” into “migrant facility for children.”Throughout former President Donald Trump’s four years in the White House, the mainstream media, like the Post, repeatedly cited “kids in cages,” claiming foreigners entering the U.S. illegally had their children ruthlessly snatched from them and shoved into cages (it was actually former President Barack Obama who started the practice).But all that’s changed now. “First migrant facility for children opens under Biden,” said the Post headline on Monday.

ATLANTA—The Georgia Senate on Tuesday pushed through the first batch of what could be a raft of restrictive voting measures Republican lawmakers say will safeguard voting but Democrats decry as based on a lie and aimed at overturning their party's recent electoral success in Georgia.The most important measure passed was Senate Bill 67, which carried on a largely party-line 35-18 vote. It would require that a voter include their driver’s license number, other state identification number or a photocopy of an approved ID when applying for an absentee ballot. That would replace the current process of signature verification, one of the key elements former President Donald Trump and others attacked

Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden. Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them. Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water. Texas has 254 counties. Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief. The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested. Biden signed the declaration late Friday. It covers much of the Texas population.

It includes gay marriage, biological males competing in women's sports, and doctors performing procedures--like gender reassignments--that go against their conscience.(Snip) Under the bill, Christian beliefs are unlawful.
