U.N. Tomfools at It Again

The United Nations Working Group of Experts–gee, we already know this is going to be really stupid and pompous–on People of African Descent has urged the United States to pay “reparations” to American blacks for the slavery that was allowed here over 150 years ago ( https://www.rt.com/usa/330934-un-recommends-usa-reparations-slavery/ ).

Nope, it ain’t enough we’ve already paid trillions of dollars for welfare, assorted anti-poverty programs, food stamps, midnight basketball, and what have you, and none of it prevented Democrat cities like Detroit and Camden from turning into urban badlands. The UN thinks we have to pay more. Much more: “full implementation of special programs” including strict gun control and “environmental rights,” whatever the sod those may be.

Well, OK, O citizens of the world, we can dig it! But where do you get off, assigning a 19th-century cutoff date to compensation for the injustices of history? And we didn’t hear anything about Turkey paying reparations to Armenians, did we?

My ancestors were oppressed and enslaved by the Roman Empire, and I think I ought to be paid off for that. By Italy, I guess. And did you say anything about China paying reparations to the Tibetans? Musta just slipped your minds…

The real question is, Why must American taxpayers continue to subsidize the United Nations?

I think we all deserve reparations for having had to put up with that for all these years.

    “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” – Booker T. Washington

    I wonder if there is any chance of a sink hole opening up in just the right location?

    “Reparations”? Really? Unless I am mistaken the U.N. supports abortion, which has a keen desire to destroy minority groups.
