Anyone who’s heard Chuck Schumer grunt knows senators say stupid things (see Chuck Schumer Screams at Trump Supporter at Sette Mezzo Restaurant). Still, nothing on God’s green earth could have prepared us for this level of moron. A senator is demanding Missouri pony up some dough as an apology to black people for slavery.
Behold the Democrat in its natural habitat:
Speaking on the Senate floor during a debate on a tax bill, Chappelle-Nadal said she was motivated by the calls and emails she receives about her constituents’ needs.
“When I’m getting a single mother of three children calling me trying to find a place to live because they don’t have a place to live, that’s what’s on my mind today and every single day,” Chappelle-Nadal said.
One thing that would help, she said, is reparations. Chappelle-Nadal said her family members were slaves in mid-Missouri. Chappelle-Nadal said she’d like to see McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, fight for reparations. Her constituents, she said, see McCaskill as similar to Republicans.
A little backstory on our loony friend here: she’s the same chick who called for Trump’s assassination. She’s a colorful character. A character of color, one might say.
The reparation argument is a tired old horse who wishes to be laid to rest. Like the non-consenting body Nancy Pelosi’s demon spirit currently possesses. Chappelle-Nadal wants the state to pay money to black people on the off chance one of their great-great grandparents was enslaved. She believes America should bear the brunt of this financial masochism despite America not having invented slavery and having played a key role in the global abolitionist movement. Brazil didn’t even abolish slavery until eighty years after us, yet nobody demands Gisele give up her fortune in the name of reparations.
Senator Chappelle saw a legitimate problem: a poverty-stricken community. Yet rather than try to come up with an actual solution, like creating more jobs, she wants to slap a used bandaid on it. Not effective. If every Tom, Dick and Harry who’s fallen on hard times could cash in on the tragedy of their ancestors we’d all be swimming in blessed greenery. For a second. Until we had to give it up to the next guy who had something bad happen to his family once 200 years ago.
Reparations aren’t happening. Stop trying to make it a thing.
