Oh This Asshat Can ...

On a recent episode of Prager University’s “The Candace Owens Show”—which is more than enough reason to not vote for this tool anyway—California GOP candidate for governor in the recall election,  Larry Elder said an argument could be made that slave owners are owed reparations after the Civil War because slavery was legal and their “property” had been taken:

“When people talk about reparations, do they really want to have that conversation? Like it or not, slavery was legal. Their legal property was taken away from them after the Civil War, so you could make an argument that the people that are owed reparations are not only just Black people but also the people whose ‘property’ was taken away after the end of the Civil War.”

Their ‘legal’

 Property was human beings, stolen from their homelands and sailed across the seas to be separated and sold from their own families into a lifetime of forced labor, beatings, rape, murder, being treated, and called, less than human, and you think the men and women who owned other human beings deserve reparations?

Larry Elder can fuck all the way off.

Actually this Elder bod should read a bit of history - the UK DID give slave owners reparations for having their property taken away from them in order to smooth the change and reduce objections. It was a most improper decision imo as they'd already decided that owning slaves was illegal and therefore they were not property. What parliament should have done was to have remunerated all the slaves who'd spent lifetimes making money for their "owners". There is something obscene in Elder's suggestions, given that his ancestors sweated blood for their owners. In fact, as far as I am concerned, any black Repugnant is a dichotomy.

There is a saying in Spanish: The dog guards master's house, but he still sleeps outside.

Sounds like he's desperate to get the white, male vote, doesn't it?

What the...?!? This guy is a bigger tool than I thought. And how many white men’s votes to that get him, I wonder. Oh, yes, he can definitely fuck all the way off. Better yet, he (and so many others lately) are deserving of a curse my great-aunt once told me for someone truly evil (I was horrified). “May he be a lamp: hang by day, burn by night, and be snuffed out in the morning”

Wow. That is denial on such a level... he should be charged with a hate crime against himself.

Well, he was on Candace's show, no?
That would tell you all you know about his grifting ass.

They compensated the little traitors right after the slaves were freed.
