Republican Senate Candidate Equates Welfare With Reparations
[su_right_ad]Because we know welfare is all about the blacks.
House Speaker Thom Tillis, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in North Carolina, once released a statement that said federal and state governments had “redistributed” “trillions of dollars over the years” — amounting to “de facto reparations.”
That argument by Tillis, who is running to replace Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC), came during an explanation he offered on his website for why he supported a joint resolution expressing the North Carolina general assembly’s regret for slavery. In his explanation for voting for it he tried to rebuff the idea that supporting that resolution would be a “slippery slope to reparations.”
“This resolution acknowledges past mistakes and frees us to move on,” Tillis wrote. “The following summarizes my perspective on concerns raised by some citizens who criticized the decision to support the resolution.”…
“This measure does not obligate legislative members to provide reparations. A subset of the democrat [sic] majority has never ceased to propose legislation that is de facto reparations and they will continue to do so as long as they are in the majority,” Tillis said. “Federal and State [sic] governments have redistributed trillions of dollars of wealth over the years by funding programs that are at least in part driven by their belief that we should provide additional reparations.”[su_csky_ad]
