Fantastic Rep. Steve King (R-IA) Speaks Out About The Pigford II Settlement


Rep. Steve King (R-IA) will have the leftists howling racism with this speech on the House floor. But, it’s absolutely true. The Pigford II Settlement is pure and complete fraud on the American public.

“We’re not going to pay slavery reparations.”

.."We are not going to pay slavery reparations in the United States Congress. That war’s been fought… There are no reparations for the blood that paid for the sin of slavery, no one’s filing that claim.”

Even after all was said.............

The Pelosi democrats passed Pigford II today. More than 92,000 “black farmers” have signed up for reparations from the Obama USDA after the Pigford case was extended this past year. That’s five times the number of blacks who were actually farming during the time period in question.

And, democrats just approved the legislation.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Refreshing to hear a representative of the people actually tell the truth! Bravo and keep up the good work, Mr. King!

Rep. King is absolutely correct; reparations-in-kind to people with a “grievance”, some of whom are not even farmers. This really is an example of the entitlement minded, “look at poor me-me”, “you owe me-me” segment of society taking advantage of the politically correct, out of control federal govt.

There weren't even 92,000 Black farmers at the time but it seems all you have to do is claim you were farming and you're going to get a payment. It doesn't matter if you even applied for a USDA loan, you're going to get a payment. This is wrong.

People better pay attention to what Dr. Manning has to say.

The gravy train rolls well under obama. He is also giving tens of millions to Hamas in Gaza. I guess I need to come up with a grievance against America then maybe I can get aboard that insane hi-speed gravy train.

I'd gladly pay reparations if they could show me one slave alive today. So we are paying the decedants of slaves for something they have no idea what it is about. I don't think there are 92,000 Farms in this country, let along that many Black farms. Where is the oversight to all of this wast of money.

Lastly, will this be the end of talk about reparations? When is this account paid in full, when can we close our check book.
