WASHINGTON – If Democrats, the pro-slavery party that instituted Jim Crow laws and created the Ku Klux Klan, want slavery reparations, they should pay them, argues #WalkAway founder Brandon Straka.
“All Democrats have to pay reparations,” Straka said in an exclusive interview with XCluded at CPAC 2019. “If you want to be a Democrat–great–no one is stopping you. You have to pay reparations.”
Straka demanded Democrats pay reparations after the party’s leading presidential candidates Julián Castro, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren, who insist Trump and his supporters are racist, pushed their party even farther left by calling for reparations.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) who is received pushback on the campaign trail for her exaggerated claims of Native American ancestry would want reparations for Native Americans first, Straka joked.
“What about Elizabeth Warren, she’s got to get some reparations for what they did to her Native American ancestors – 0003 cents on the dollar,” he quipped.
Straka, a gay former Democrat and the creator of a social media campaign which has convinced hundreds of thousands of liberals to detach themselves from the Democrat party, called Democrat demands for reparations “ludicrous” considering the party’s legacy of instituting segregation.
The extremism of the Democrat leadership combined with the liberal media’s brazen deception, he claimed, is the #WalkAway campaign’s greatest asset.
“The good news is the Democrats and the liberal media are doing half the work for us,” he said. “It seems everything is getting further and further left, more extreme, more fringe. Now we have bills where you can have an abortion as you’re dilating, being rushed to the hospital.”
Democrats manipulate voters into supporting extremist policies, like infanticide, by convincing their constituents that they are oppressed victims, Straka warned.
The left justifies infanticide “by saying ‘you are trying to infringe on the rights of women’ – this is something that I never understood as a liberal. Now it’s glaringly clear to me – its how they use identity and oppression and victimhood to get away, literally, with murder,’” he said. “Saying ‘I’m a woman, it’s my body, it’s my right, it’s my choice’ – it’s like, girl, you are literally dilating, that’s a human being coming out of you. It’s not your body anymore.”
Democrats are also employing a strategy to promote victimhood with their insistence that a border wall is “racist,” Straka asserted.
“That’s what they do with everything, they call a border wall ‘racist’ – as if its only white people that want the wall. People who are most disproportionately affected by illegal immigration are low-income African Americans and low-income Hispanic people. And those are the people – demographically, statistically – they want the wall too.
Straka sat down with Fox News host Mark Levin for an in-depth conversation that will air Sunday at 10:00 p.m. ET on “Life, Liberty & Levin.”
