Do Democrat politicians believe there is any reason to love their country? These people are unbelievable! When was the last time anyone ever heard a Democrat politician speak a message of hope? That is not a rhetorical question by the way.
The Democrats seem to never have anything good to say about America. It is a constant barrage of negativity from these people without ever acknowledging all that is good and wonderful about this place. Listening to them, one would think that we are living in some kind of dystopian nightmare.
Today they are currently holding hearings on reparations. Can you believe this nonsense? Reparations…reparations? You have got to be kidding.
It is needless to say that slavery was an awful thing, and a terrible stain on this country, but my gosh, slavery was an accepted practice in the world at that time, but there were always people who were against it, and in America in particular, it was always a cause of contention.
The history of the world is of people and nations conquering, ruling, and dominating other nations and people, where the victors always set the rules. That is simply the world that existed then.
How in heavens name do we look at a country like America today though, and hold all of this bitterness for a practice that has so long been abolished? We are the only country that fought a war over slavery, and it is true that even after slavery black people continued to suffer many injustices. But each step of the way, there were always people speaking out against injustice and fighting for a country that truly lived up to the ideal that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights.
Slavery was a system that was deeply entrenched in America and it is natural that even after granting slaves their freedom, it would require even more work to change attitudes toward black people. That is what the country did. The nation did the work that was necessary to give us the country that we have today.
Instead of being grateful that we live in a country that took on the evil of slavery in a time when slavery was a common practice in the world, today we have the Democrat Party doing what they do best and stirring up grievance among its citizens over it.
Keep in mind that today in America, most people of European descent currently living in America have absolutely no connection to slavery in any way. They are not the descendants of slave owners, but even if they were, they should not be made to feel guilty about something that they had no involvement in.
We should never forget our history, because when we do, we are very likely to repeat the mistakes of the past, but for crying out loud can we stop looking back and complaining about this issue as though we can do something about the past? Who gets to decide how far back in the past we should go anyway. Why not go back to the African countries where black people were selling other black people to the Europeans who were coming to their shores to engage in the trading of human beings. Should we be demanding payment from these African countries today? Why do they get a pass?
Folks, the past is past! The America that exists today is a place of opportunity for every citizen, especially black Americans. America has already done the hard lifting to correct injustices of the past. The people who continue to complain about every slight faced by black people today, whether these slights are real or imagined, will never be satisfied because in their world perfection is the only standard that they will accept. Until every last sliver of injustice is eliminated they will not be satisfied. That is a fantasy. That utopian society does not exist anywhere.
It is true that we can never be satisfied, and we should always seek to do better no matter how good we have it, but can we at least acknowledge how good we have it and be grateful for that?
America has paid its dues, black people living in this country are not owed a single penny for slavery. There are so many systems and programs in place that black people can take advantage of to better their lives.
This whole idea of reparations only serves to keep the wounds over slavery that should have healed a long time ago festering. No one should doubt the desire of the Democrat Party to keep the country in a state of division. They thrive on selling the idea that black people are victims in America. That way Democrat politicians can always portray themselves as heroes coming to the rescue of these helpless black people who simply cannot make it without their Democrat benefactors.
Ladies and gentlemen this talk of reparations is a scam. It is a hoax that is meant to distract from the real issues that are facing people of every stripe in this country. Don’t fall for it.
