Last week, in his Wall Street Journal “Best of the Web” newsletter, James Freeman discussed Elizabeth Warren’s call for a “thorough national conversation on Reparations.” Here is what he said:
The basic idea is that the federal government will apportion among the citizens living now the historical guilt for heinous acts committed by people long dead against other people long dead. Then money would flow from people who have not been convicted of any crime to people who have not been found by any court to have been victimized by a crime.
That sounded like a very clever description of what the idea of current US taxpayers paying so-called reparations to existing black US citizens.
And do you notice, Democrats call for “conversations” about any number of hot-button issues, yet they try very hard to shut up anyone who might have opinions other than theirs?
