In recent weeks Senator and 2020 Presidential Candidate Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) has pushed for reparations for the descendants of slaves, as she claims that ‘White’s’ owe it to them, for the plight of their ancestors. However, her stance has already come under fire, as for how would you decide who pays for such reparations? Would you force all ‘white people’, even if their ancestors were slaves? Would you force immigrants and descendants of immigrants who came to America post-slavery? Would you make Indians, women, or even the Chinese, who suffered more than any other race? Then, how would you disperse the money? Would those whose families were free be allowed to collect reparations checks or money?

Now, Senator Klobuchar has conveniently shifted her position in saying that reparations for the descendants of slaves do not have to be in the form of direct financial payments. In other words, it would be A NEW ENTITLEMENT TAX ON MOST EVERY AMERICAN, AND DISPERSED AS THEY SEE FIT, TO THOSE WHOM THEY CHOOSE! Ultimately, it further pushes America towards a Socialist nation! Therefore, Klobuchar continues to show her Marxist ideals, despite what the Mainstream Media, Democrats, or Klobuchar herself claim! Klobuchar stated on ‘Meet the Press’ that it is a good debate to have and spoke about investing in communities “hurt by racism.” She added…

“I believe we have to invest in those communities that have been so hurt by racism. It doesn’t have to be a direct pay for each person. But what we can do is, invest in those communities, acknowledge what’s happened. And that means better education. That means looking at, for our whole economy: community college, one-year degrees, minimum wage, childcare, making sure that we have that shared dream of opportunity for all Americans.”

Meanwhile, you have other Democrat Presidential candidates joining in on her Socialist ‘reparations’ bandwagon’! For example, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said that America needs to pay reparations, as a way to help African-Americans deal with the “trauma” of slavery! Julian Castro (D-TX) expressed his interest in openness for giving financial payments to the descendants of slaves. Then, Senator and 2020 Candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-CA) refused to deny her support for paying reparations to descendants of slaves, and even promoted paying reparations to Indians as well! Also, Presidential Candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke also has indicated that he would support reparations, as he apologized for his ‘White Privilege’!.

Ultimately, the Democrats ‘reparations’ aspect of their Party’s identity politics isn’t about giving money from those whose ancestors committed atrocities, to those whose ancestors suffered, but instead, it is about shifting wealth and power from the Middle Class to the Elitist Political and Economic class in America!

Conservative Review analyzed Klobuchar’s voting record, and it showed that she is certainly NO MODERATE! In fact, she voted for left-wing policies a whopping 98% of the time, which explains why she has received not only high praise from PBS, the New York Times, CNN, ABC’s ‘The View”, and other left-wing media, but also they pushed for her to run for President! The following shows how she has already voted as Senator on key issues in recent years…

In the end, Klobucar’s ideology is no different from the most radically left-wing of her Party! Instead, she is simply a better liar, cheat, and politician! In fact, although Klobuchar’s policies in words are moderate, her actions and actual policies are as radically left-wing as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The main difference, Klobuchar knows when to be quiet, she knows when and what to say, and then no matter what she tells her constituents, she does what is best for her ideologically socialist Democrat Party
