Now that Joe Biden has officially made Juneteenth into another federal holiday the activist left isn’t going to take time off to savor their victory. They have immediately mounted a push for the rest of their radical Critical Race Theory agenda.
As celebrations took place throughout the country for what many are calling the “real” independence day, there were calls to pass the Democrats’ For The People Act. It has been obscured as “voting rights” for blacks but would really end democracy as it has existed. The bill is currently stalled in the Senate.
But much more important to those seeking to fundamentally transform America is the idea of paying reparations. A racist wealth confiscation scheme that would have the government steal money from white people who never owned slaves to give to blacks who had never been slaves.
Unsurprisingly, the woman leading the call for reparations payments is Rep. Ilhan Omar. The Somali-born anti-Semite along with “Squad” leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez set the agenda for the Democratic party as a whole.
On Saturday, Omar took to Twitter to spike the ball that Juneteenth is now a federal holiday while highlighting what is to come. “Next step: reparations” she tweeted.
Proud #Juneteenth is now a federal holiday.
As we reflect on the significance of what this day symbolizes, let’s keep fighting to address the lasting consequences of slavery.
Next step: reparations.
— Rep. Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan) June 19, 2021
Omar is coming off of a rough couple of weeks after her comparison of the United States and Israel to terrorist organizations Hamas and the Taliban resulted in much outrage. This culminated in a rare rebuke by Jewish Democrats as well as by Hamas itself.
By getting back to her normal race-baiting she is once again in safe territory, especially with her fellow Democrats. The party has returned to its glory days of segregation and use of the government for the purposes of racial discrimination, only this time it is directed against white people.
Joining Omar was fellow “Squad” member Ayanna Pressley who also tweeted her support for the shakedown.
Black folks deserve joy, rest, celebration, reparations, safety, health care, financial freedom, the chance to witness the end of the carceral state and full liberation 🖤

As did other black Democrats who may never be truly happy until white people are put in chains.
On today's #JuneTeenth2021, let's rejoice in our ancestors' fight for freedom.
But let's also set our sights on what we need to realize their vision of liberation — housing justice, reparations and reconciliation, and equality for every Black American in every zip code.

Black Lives Matter activist Rep. Cori Bush used Juneteenth to call for black separatism.
On this Juneteenth, remember that millions of incarcerated Black people are still in bondage and that the 13th Amendment still permits slavery.
Our work is Black liberation in its totality.

Democrat Rep. Barbara Lee took it one step further with a call for the creation of a special “transformation commission,” an illustration of the Democrats’ infatuation with Soviet-style investigations and show trials.
Making #Juneteenth a national holiday is an important step in our fight to dismantle systemic racism.
Now we must pass H.R. 40 & my bill H.Con.Res.19 to create a truth, racial healing & transformation commission.

Lee was the only member of Congress to vote against U.S. retaliation towards the terrorists responsible for the 9/11 attacks. She also previously called for the United Nations to send observers to monitor the border during the Trump administration.
Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee took to Twitter to point out the obvious: “We’re no longer slaves,” which has been the case ever since Republican President Abraham Lincoln ended the practice.

Rep. Jackson Lee has been the driving force behind a Democrat bill to formally begin the congressional process of determining how to make reparations a reality. A vote on the bill is likely to take place by the end of the month.
The “Tulsa massacre” took place a century ago and has gone from an obscure footnote in history to a top Democrat talking point. Citing this story in Tulsa was perhaps the most demagogic speech that Joe Biden has ever given. The goal of course was laying the groundwork for reparations, an idea once too controversial for even Barack Obama. However, under Biden it is closer to reality than ever before.
