Terrell Blasts Obama’s Statement That Reparations Are ‘Justified’

“America, we will never have reparations in this country. Never.”

Reparations, properly defined as the “act of making amends, offering expiation, or giving satisfaction for a wrong or injury,” are often considered one of the most divisive ideas in American politics. Advocates have spent years upon years calling on lawmakers to assess how the government could offer financial compensation to the descendants of enslaved people. 

In a recent interview, Barack Obama discussed his support for reparations and why he didn’t propose them during his presidency.  

“What I saw during my presidency was that the politics of white resistance and resentment, the talk of welfare claims and the talk of the undeserving poor, and the backlash against affirmative action, all that made the prospect of actually proposing any kind of coherent, meaningful reparations program struck me as politically, not only a non-starter, but potentially counterproductive,” he said.  

Leo Terrell joined Herschel Walker on Hannity Wednesday, blasting Obama for just trying to stay relevant. 

“Let me just jump on this because Barack Obama, Sean and America, he’s pandering. He’s pandering to the far left because he needs to stay relevant. That’s why he’s talking reparations and affirmative action,” Terrell said.  

“Let me tell you right now, in California they tried to pass affirmative action last year, I was one of the oppositions, it lost in blue state California and he’s wrong,” he added. 

Terrell urged that paying people back for things that happened so long ago is unjustifiable. 

“White people are not against reparation, all people are against reparation,” he said. “Herschel, black, brown, yellow, white, we don’t believe that reparations is justified for paying people for things that happened 180 years ago. This is nothing more than pandering so that Barack Obama can stay relevant to the socialists,” he added. 

“It’s socialists talking points. It will never happen. America, we will never have reparations in this country. Never.”

    Obama as president stated that reparations would be impossible to calculate. It was simply non-viable. He was right then. Unfortunately now, with the race-baiting and white-hating that he and Michelle instigated along with Obama influencers like Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright between 2009 and 2017, far left radicals in association with BLM which was created during his administration thanks to Obama’s race hustling, feel empowered and enabled to force America to pay Blacks for slavery that happened 2 centuries ago. Some issues: what percent Black to you have to be to qualify as an Afro-American Black? Or is it the Jim Crow ‘1 drop’ criterion? What about Black immigrants who arrived after 1865? Who pays? I would assume ‘whites’ only. Not Hispanics or Asians or American Indians. What about white people whose ancestors didn’t arrive in America till after 1865? Why should they pay? Because they’re ‘white’? Slavery didn’t exist west of the Mississippi. Why should westerners pay. Slavery didn’t exist north of the Mason-Dixon line. Why should ‘Yankees’ pay? So, that leaves ‘white’ families from the South whose ancestors were here prior to the Civil War. Is that who pays? Why form will ‘reparations’ take? Over what period of time? Is there also some ‘apology’ that’s expected from ‘white people’? Why? Because Blacks are inherently racist and they just want to kick you because you’re down? C’mon man. Gimme a break.

    Most American citizens are descendants of post civil war immigrants. They had nothing to do with slavery. The only institution that promoted slavery and still exists from this era is the Democrat party. The Democrat party is the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, and civil right violations. The Democrat party should be held solely responsible for reparations. They should be made to pay for their sins.

    Leo, I’d like to ask Barry Obama, the most corrupt President in the history of America, if he thinks reparations should be paid to families of the 600,000 white soldiers killed fighting in the Civil War to free the slaves. Of course not as it happened 180 years ago.
    Keep up the good fight to save our country! I’m a huge fan!!

    Well if we need to give reparations to blacks yhen I guess Egypt needs to give reparations to the jews for the 400yrs of slavery they endured between Joseph and Mosesn oh and since my family came to America to flee the persecutions of Stalin. I guess Russia owes our families for the hardship we endured

    And who punishes the blacks in Africa who put those slaves on ships to America? Oh yes … blacks sold blacks, and blacks in America owned slaves, too. The circle won’t stop until this all stops. And no matter what Obummer says … he’s STILL not relevant. Thanks, Leo 2.0 … have to say, welcome to the conservative right. You are now #1 in my book, too.

    God created us all equal, inside, not outside. So what does color matter? It doesn’t. What matters is a person’s relationship with the Almighty, a person’s character, integrity, and honesty. Race only becomes an issue if someone is afraid of the truth- that we ARE all created equal. People use race as an excuse for their lack of belief in God. Some people choose to politicize it just like the pandemic got politicized, which was and is still wrong. God will have the last word.
    By the way, when Columbus and Erickson landed in North America, they found that native Americans already had slaves. How do you justify reparations for them?

    If Obama was so concerned about his fellow Black Americans, why didn’t he ask Congress to send him Anti-Lynching legislation to be signed into law? What a bunch of bologna.

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

Published

BLM

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Alabama Judge Removed from Bench, Called Another Black Judge ‘Uncle Tom’

Jefferson County Judge Nakita Blocton also called another judge a ‘fat b****’ and an employee a ‘heifer’

One Alabama Judge is being removed from her bench after committing ethics violations and using horrifically racist rhetoric towards a Black judge. Jefferson County Judge Nakita Blocton called one judge an “Uncle Tom” which is a derogatory term used to accuse a Black person of being a traitor to the Black community and being “overly allegiant to White people” explains Fox News.

Blocton herself is Black. On December 10, all nine judges on Alabama’s Court of the Judiciary acted to remove Blocton from the bench. They also ordered her to pay the costs of their proceedings.

Findings from a commission that filed a complaint against the judge for ethics violations found she “engaged in a pattern of practice of making inappropriate comments – for example, calling one judge ‘Uncle Tom’ and another judge a ‘fat b****’ and calling an employee a heifer.”

Blocton also repeatedly abused staff, attorneys and litigants, and verbally abused and belittled another employee. Fox News reports:

Blocton also used several Facebook aliases to communicate with litigants in pending domestic-relations cases in an effort to affect the outcome of those cases, according to the commission.

She also engaged in “a pattern of dishonesty and deception” by using the aliases to provide information to litigants in cases and asking potential witnesses to delete evidence related to the commission’s investigation and attempting to influence testimony.

According to an initial complaint made against the judge in May, one person involved in divorce litigation said the judge used online aliases to send several threatening messages which included, “THE DEVIL IS WATCHING U,” “LEAVE THOSE BLACK WOMEN DEMOCRATS ALONE.”

The commission failed to gather enough evidence to support other allegations against Brocton, including that the judge was using drugs, was mentally unstable and made an inappropriate campaign contribution to a Birmingham mayoral candidate.
