Leftist Loons Meltdown Over “Reparations” in New York

United States: Amidst the growing trend of a whole new generation completely swerving from their parent’s political beliefs, Governor Kathy Hochul of New York has taken the liberty of requesting legislation outlining the intentions of a commission working to investigate measures for reparation.

But even in the midst of the many real struggles that New Yorkers must contend with, such as crime, homelessness, and deteriorating public works, the governor sees fit to spend the limited resources and time that she has on this symbolic endeavor alone.

The very concept of reparations serves as a rebuke to diligent Americans of diverse backgrounds. It represents a pandering maneuver intended to foster division along racial lines and perpetuate the victimhood narrative that resonates with the left. Rather than promoting self-reliance and personal accountability, they prefer disbursing taxpayer funds to those ready to play the victim card.

Bertha Lewis and her associates at the Black Institute spearhead this effort, advocating the preposterous notion that all Black individuals are entitled to reparations based on a nebulous concept of “systemic discrimination.” Here’s a reality check for Ms. Lewis: America is a land of opportunity where individuals, irrespective of race, can achieve success through diligence and determination. Indulging in victimhood won’t lead to prosperity in this nation.

Let’s not overlook Mona Davids, who, at the very least, acknowledges that reparations should be confined to descendants of chattel slavery. Nevertheless, she falls short by neglecting to recognize that the very notion of reparations is a distortion of justice. Today’s taxpayers shouldn’t bear the burden of atonement for historical transgressions.

Governor Hochul’s remarks only serve to inflame the situation, suggesting that even immigrants who arrived post-slavery should shoulder some responsibility for reparations. This guilt-by-association logic is not only illogical but downright offensive to the millions of industrious immigrants who sought a better life for themselves and their families in this country.

Enough is enough. This is the time to put an end to this nonsense; instead, we must tackle the substantial problems facing communities. Reparations are nothing more than a cynical political maneuver, and it’s time to denounce them for what they truly are: a despicable beggaring of the public purse to pay for the show of bling and swimming in the swamp of inequality where those principles with which this nation was created ended up in.

Regrettably, the left’s fixation on identity politics appears boundless. They will cease at nothing to divide us and sow discord in the name of political correctness. I assert that enough is enough. It’s time to repudiate their divisive agenda and unite as Americans to address the actual issues facing our country.
