What is the Vice-President talking about? Equity is resource distribution based on race (and sex, somebody asked, but what does that mean anymore to a Democrat?). Under the Biden-Kamala scheme, white victims of the storm will receive less government support, whereas black victims of the storm will receive more. At least that’s what they say. And just saying it is bad enough.
Race-based distribution of resources is racism. Equality and equity understood in the way progressives define these terms are antithetical principles. I bet you’ve figured that out. Either everybody is treated equality or some group is shaken down on the premise that what they have is unearned, acquired at somebody else’s expense.
I find it fascinating how, in the 19th century, Democrats, the party of the slavocracy, used racism to extract wealth from the black population, then, after the Civil Rights Act, used racism to extract wealth from the white population. Racism isn’t a problem for this party; they only need to flip the racial hierarchy to keep the scheme going—the scheme to divide the working class by sowing racial resentment.
Had equality been important to Democrats, i.e., if the party were actually principled or represented working class interests, then 1964 would have meant that decisions would be henceforth made on a colorblind basis, since, as individuals, we’re all equal before the law and therefore no individual should be treated on the basis of his skin color—i.e., that, on the basis of race, he should receive more or less than any other person whatever his skin color is.
Democrats have been playing the race-based distribution of resources game since the inception of the party. When were we going to reject their racism and demand the country honor the American Creed of equality established by the republicans who founded this nation?
