Exactly two-thirds of Americans (66 percent) oppose paying reparations for slavery, while only 21 percent believe it to be a good idea, according to a poll from Rasmussen.
Rasmussen asked 1,000 likely voters if they agreed with a Democrat plan to use taxpayer dollars as a means to apologize for legalized slavery, which was outlawed 150 years ago and after a Civil War that resulted in the deaths of some 600,000 Americans.
Margin - Americans - Idea - Penalty - Something
By a wide margin, Americans understandably oppose the absurd idea of paying a penalty for something they had nothing to do with. And the fact that those payments would go to people removed by generations from the abomination of legalized slavery is just as ludicrous.
Voters also seem to grasp that this is all political posturing. Back in September Rasmussen asked 1,000 likely voters if politicians raise the issue of race only to get elected and 71 percent said yes. So, yes, voters get it.
Issues - Country - Democrat - Party - Idea
Despite being one of those rare 70-30 issues in our divided country, the Democrat Party has still embraced the outrageous and divisive idea of slavery reparations. This includes the party’s top 2020 candidates for president, including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), fake Hispanic Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), and former HUD Secretary Julián Castro (D-TX).
But anyone with half a brain knows the idea of reparations is a ridiculous and deeply unfair policy driven only by cynicism and a half-century of Democrat Party failure.
There is just no question anymore...
