McConnell Slams Dem Push For Reparations For Slavery, “No One Currently Alive Was Responsible For That” (VIDEO)
The Democrats are pushing for reparations for slavery and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is not having it.
The House Judiciary Committee led by Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) will hold a hearing Wednesday “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”
The star witnesses will be author Ta-Nehisi Coates and and radical communist actor Danny Glover.
A reporter asked McConnell on Tuesday about the hearing on Capitol Hill which will cover the topic of reparations for slavery scheduled for Wednesday.
“Where do you stand on that issue? Do you believe in reparations for slavery and if not, should there be a public apology from Congress or from the President in recognition of the theft of labor?” a liberal reporter asked McConnell.
McConnell responded, “Yeah, I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago for whom none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea.”
This is just a ploy for Democrats to take more money from the taxpayer and redistribute it (because the trillions of dollars in welfare wasn’t enough).
No one alive today owned a slave and no black person alive today was a slave in the US. And what about the immigrant families who weren’t even in the country when the US allowed slavery? They owe money to non-slaves too?
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he is against reparations for slavery in part because it would be hard to know whom to pay.
