posted by Hannity Staff - 7.15.20

The City Council in Asheville, North Carolina reportedly approved “reparations for black citizens” Tuesday evening; passing the historic measure in a unanimous 7-0 vote.

“A city council in North Carolina unanimously approved reparations for black citizens while apologizing for the city’s role in slavery,” reports the New York Post.

“Hundreds of years of black blood spilled that basically fills the cup we drink from today,” said Councilman Keith Young.

“The resulting budgetary and programmatic priorities may include but not be limited to increasing minority homeownership and access to other affordable housing, increasing minority business ownership and career opportunities, strategies to grow equity and generational wealth, closing the gaps in health care, education, employment and pay, neighborhood safety and fairness within criminal justice,” the resolution said.

“It is simply not enough to remove statutes. Black people in this country are dealing with issues that are systemic in nature,” Young said.

AOC: Coronavirus Response ‘Should Be Drafted With a Lens of Reparations’

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surprised millions of users on social media Friday; demanding the federal government’s Coronavirus response be “drafted with a lens of reparations.”

“COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities. Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions. Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations,” posted AOC on Twitter.

 

The Congresswoman made similar comments over Amazon’s response to the pandemic.

“Amazon’s attempt to smear Chris Smalls, one of their own warehouse workers, as ‘not smart or articulate’ is a racist & classist PR campaign. If execs are as concerned abt worker health & safety as they claim, then they should provide the full paid sick leave ALL workers deserve,” posted AOC on Twitter.

 

“Jeff Bezos: The richest man in the world. Amazon: Pays $0 in federal income taxes. Workers: Unable to get the protection they need,” added Sen. Bernie Sanders. “The greed has got to end. I stand with Amazon workers who are fighting for their rights.”

DEMOCRAT DREAM: Liberal ‘Agenda’ REVEALED, Includes Free College and ‘Reparations’

A prominent Democratic donor foundation laid the groundwork for the liberal movement heading into the 2022 election cycle; calling for free college and “reparations” during an annual conference this week.

According to Fox News, an invitation to the high-caliber Democracy Alliance’s fundraiser outlined the progressive agenda for the future of the party; saying “It’s 2022 and we are celebrating policy victories across the nation: Medicare for All and Free College, and next on the agenda is Reparations.”

“Take a ride in our time machine to hear from the true political geniuses who made this happen,” the invitation adds.

The event was attended by DNC chairman Tom Perez, former governor of Virginia and possible 2020 hopeful Terry McAuliffe, and multiple members of Congress.

“Because we’re governing with gusto, we’re seeing victories up and down the ballot—including winning a governorship in Texas and putting 38 electoral votes in grasp by 2024… Stop in 2020 and 2019 when local power builders turned Arizona and Florida solidly blue and established Virginia as a progressive governance juggernaut,” the invitation predicts.
