Nobody can turn paradise into a nightmare faster than a bunch of Democrats.
And California is chock full of leftists trying to outdo one another.
Now, they have a new plan to bankrupt the state ASAP.
Inflation is out of control, a housing shortage has pushed the state to the brink of disaster, and a huge portion of California’s population is teetering on the edge of the poverty line.
With an economy the size of France, the Golden State stands to suffer as the national economy falters with some big shots on Wall Street saying there’s a 50/50 chance America is about to enter a nasty recession.
Considering everything coming down right now, you’d think lawmakers would be laser focused on stabilizing an economy that’s been losing loads of people and businesses affluent enough to move out of the state even as the lowest class swells with Bidenflation.
But instead of creating a place where everyone can prosper, the Democrats running California are hyper focused on creating winners and losers—in a game that ensures everyone ends up broke in the end.
Now the California Reparations Task Force is figuring out how to structure a reparations plan for descendants of American slaves.
Exactly what that costs is sure to be one ugly sticking point.
Up until now, the task force has been focused on creating one gigantic 500-page “interim report” that’s “woke” enough to get them all kinds of kudos.
No doubt, they’re hoping to win the “wokest of woke” prize by leading the nation in a race to be the first to cut a reparation check.
“It will never make people whole who are the descendants of slaves, but understanding that America and California does owe a debt to African Americans” is significant, state Senator Steven Bradford said. “There is a debt still owed to African Americans who built this country.”
But some conservative black leaders understand it’s a move that will backfire in a big way.
Conservative author and former Trump administration HUD Secretary Ben Carson fears reparations will inflame racial tension in the country.
“Focus has moved from equality to equity, that is, instead of pursuing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s ideal of judging people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, equity would reward and punish people because of the color of their skin,” the one-time GOP Presidential contender wrote in an op-ed in the Washington Post.
The truth is that racism is a tool leftists love to wield—and are absolutely banking on to control the masses through guilt and shame.
They can’t possibly allow Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream to become a reality.
That would lead to a nation filled with free and prosperous people—and that would certainly be a recipe for disaster in any unhinged leftist’s book.
