It never ceases to amaze me.
I’m sitting innocently in my vehicle. The news comes on and I hear another way that our governments, businesses, non-profits and other organizations are discriminating against people based on their race and sex.
Maybe I should go into the business of making neon signs for them to hang outside of their offices. No whites need apply. No men need apply. We discriminate and there’s nothing you can do about it.
As black South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott said last week in his rebuttal to President Disaster’s address to Congress, “It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination.”
But that’s exactly what’s going on in the country today because it’s the Democrat strategy to buy minority votes.
The latest racist discriminatory insanity comes in the form of $28.6 billion that the SBA is offering through “Restaurant Revitalization Fund” grants.
First of all, it’s a little too late. The National Restaurant Association has estimated that 110,000 restaurants closed permanently in 2020.
Secondly, the SBA, of course, has asterisks on their grant funding. The asterisks are that they will be prioritizing applications of businesses that are majority owned and operated by women, veterans and/or “socially and economically disadvantaged individuals” which is defined by the SBA in their program guide.
So what does their program guide say about being socially disadvantaged? Well you have to search for it because none of the other media outlets reporting on the story ever wants to do any research and tell you the whole story because they’re lazy.
The guide says that socially disadvantaged individuals are those who have been “subjected to racial or ethnic prejudice or cultural bias because of their identity as a member of a group without regard to their individual qualities. Individuals who are members of the following groups are presumed to be socially disadvantaged: Black Americans; Hispanic Americans; Native Americans (including Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians); Asian Pacific Americans; or Subcontinent Asian Americans.”
I can get on board with the whole veteran thing. Veterans serve our country and should be given every opportunity available to be successful in their lives. We OWE them.
But the sex or color that we are is something we are born with. It’s unconstitutional and against many discrimination laws to do what the SBA is doing.
I find it ironic that the SBA talks about “without regard to their individual qualities” when the SBA is doing just that – offering grants without regard to anyone’s individual qualities.
The Democrats were racist back in the Jim Crow era and they’re racist now because it benefits them politically.
Being a certain color or sex has NOTHING to do with why the restaurants are having problems and why they are closing.
It has everything to do with our tyrannical leaders who have locked downed the country for more than a year.
It has to do with oppressive Democratic governors who are responsible for people losing their jobs and businesses with absolutely no scientific evidence that restaurants are the cause of any significant virus spread. They are just easy targets for the Democrats to go after.
And now the government is going to pick and choose who gets helped based on someone’s sex or color.
That is NOT an acceptable reality.
Luckily, there are some folks fighting back against this kind of unconstitutional and illegal discrimination that the leftists are running rampant with.
A group of white midwestern farmers are suing the Biden Harris Obama administration for racial bias in their loan forgiveness program.
The leftists seem to think they can pass out reparations all over the place and buy votes by handing out freebies to minorities. But it’s not legal.
So farmers in South Dakota, Ohio, Minnesota and Wisconsin are going after Biden and the Democrat’s racist policies.
The plaintiffs claim they can’t participate in the $4 billion COVID-19 loan forgiveness program because they’re white. The program is only for farmers and ranchers who are black, American Indian, Hispanic, Alaskan native, Asian American or Pacific Islander.
The lawsuit says that the government is violating the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights. It reads “Were plaintiffs eligible for the loan forgiveness benefit, they would have the opportunity to make additional investments in their property, expand their farms, purchase equipment and supplies and otherwise support their families and local communities. Because plaintiffs are ineligible to even apply for the program solely due to their race, they have been denied the equal protection of the law and therefore suffered harm.”
The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture is “reviewing” the lawsuit with the Justice Department but as leftists always do, they will be continuing their progressive bigotry until someone stops them.
