The radical left has completely lost the plot of America.
With each passing day, the Democrats are coming up with new ways to be shockingly extreme.
Now students at Georgetown are pushing for a tuition hike for one insane reason.
The radical left has been trying to gain a foothold in the mainstream American discourse for decades, and regrettably, they’ve finally done it.
The topic of reparations for slavery has been a fringe discussion issue mainly hashed out on college campuses in debate series for years.
The topic had thankfully faded away, but now it’s back in a major way.
Far-left author Ta-Nehisi Coates revitalized the discussion over reparations in an Atlantic article a few years ago, and now the psychotic left has brought the topic to the mainstream.
Now every single major Democratic presidential candidate in the running has endorsed—either partially or fully—slavery reparations.
And now Georgetown University is getting in on the act.
Students at the school voted to raise their tuition to pay reparations to descendants of slaves sold by the university in 1838.
However, these descendants already receive legacy admissions status, which dramatically increases their chances of getting into the school.
But that isn’t enough.
These students voted at a 2-to-1 ratio to increase tuition, which is already sky high, to achieve some unattainable cosmic justice.
Reparations is a terrible idea for many reasons.
First, it’s a racist idea that calls for collective punishment.
So people who had nothing to do with slavery will pay reparations to people who were never slaves.
It’s utter nonsense.
Next, reparations have already been paid in the form of affirmative action and quotas.
At the time affirmative action was first implemented, it was understood to be a temporary corrective, but leftists have now enshrined it as a sacred policy.
This is always how government programs work.
They slip their foot in the door, then grow exponentially.
Slavery reparations are also illogical.
In addition to the moral deficiency of the idea, it poses a logistical nightmare.
Figuring out who gets reparations—and the amount, based on grievance—would be unthinkably complicated.
It would require a massive bureaucracy just to conduct DNA tests and verify claims, which surely sounds like heaven to the Democrats.
They never pass up an opportunity to grow the government.
Also, reparations keeps the discussion on race stuck in the past.
Leftists are determined to keep the 1960s alive and well, even if all of the civil rights battles are over.
However, the left can’t lay down its sword and shield and go home.
That’s why left-wing groups always spiral out of control and often become tyrannical.
The racist identitarian left is obsessed with skin color and ethnicity, but they always point the finger at conservatives.
But they’re the true racists.
They don’t want to move past race.
They want to make it the central contention of life in America.
These “progressive” leftists are now calling for segregation on college campuses, decrying interracial relationships in the New York Times and Huffington Post op-ed pieces, and designing college courses around attacking white people.
These racist leftists don’t want equality.
They want to revert to Jim Crow, but with different people being oppressed.
Instead of being racist Democrats attacking black people, these leftists are now racist Democrats attacking white people…and black people who disagree with them.
