BET Founder Demands 14 Trillion In Reparations As Riots Rage Across America

BET founder Robert Johnson is now calling for 14 Trillion dollars to be given to African Americans as reparations for slavery.

Johnson’s call comes as the nation is convulsed with rioting and lawlessness unseen in decades.

As The Daily Wire reports:

The founder of Black Entertainment Television says the federal government should pay out $14 trillion to black Americans as reparations for slavery.

Robert Johnson, a billionaire, said Monday on CNBC that the wealth disparity in the U.S. and police brutality against blacks are the cause of violent protests across the country. To fix the problem, pay out trillions, Johnson said.

“Now is the time to go big,” he said. “Wealth transfer is what’s needed. Think about this. Since 200-plus-years or so of slavery, labor taken with no compensation, is a wealth transfer. Denial of access to education, which is a primary driver of accumulation of income and wealth, is a wealth transfer.”

Johnson said reparations would be the “affirmative action program of all time,” delivering a message to white Americans that “damages … are owed” for slavery and the decades of racism that followed.

You are right about Native Americans, Chinese, Irish all were slaves at one time. Most of the Blacks that were brought here as slaves were sold by other Blacks in Africa. So as soon as they start paying and the demoncraps
pay for this also. Some of these idiots need to learn their history, but it’s being taken out of our schools so our young people will listen to the demoncraps because they tell them, like the ILLEGALS and they can’t see that the demoncraps are using them.

I DIDN’T RIOT. Why didn’t he demand action from the mayors and governors? I wouldn’t give this riot crap one damn dime and I sure wouldn’t give money to any agency that is going to bail the rioters out. I am sympathetic to Mr. Floyd. I hope the cop fries. But that’s it. RIOTING is on your heads Mr. BET.

Another brain-dead Leftist heard from. Wealth transfer is the death of free enterprise and the middle class. How did Mr. Johnson acquire his network and wealth? Did someone voluntarily “transfer” a few million to him? He’s listed as a billionaire. Good, he can voluntarily transfer his wealth.

Great points. Mr. BET needs to pay out reparations to the property owners these rioters are destroying. Reparations is a Democrat talking point that only resonates in the black community mainly because they are always looking for hand outs. Mr. Johnson is a good example of what anyone can accomplish in the United States. So, reparations are not needed for anyone to succeed in this country. But, to allow rioters to destroy businesses without recuperations is insanity. The answer is for police and national guard to stop anyone setting fires to businesses and property damage; at any cost. Just today, the liberal element of the Republican Party (former president G.W. Bush) came out and said he was on the side of the rioters. Just goes to show what kind of president he was. Remember, he was responsible for giving us John Roberts on the Supreme Court; a total disaster. G.W. Bush was a globalist who believed in one world order; like his father George H.W. Bush. However, what is happening in the USA today is being financed by George Soros and the Democrat Party. Antifa is also financed by the Democrat Party; that is why they must be defeated. Everything bad that happens to our country was done by the Democrat Party. Remember, they gave us KKK, slavery, and many of the wars we have been in.

Democrats are the tax and spend Party. Always has been and always will be. They also are the Party of Alinsky, the community organizer (which Obama copied) who had 12 rules (actually 13 here) to follow in order to turn the country into a socialist state.
1. “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
3. “Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
6.”A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
8. “Keep the pressure on.”
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.”
12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

I was nearly crucified for arguing these “rules” were contrary to our national interests and security at the time… that was during my college days back in 1975 shortly after I got out of the Army.

Today? I’d probably be shot on the spot. IMHO

The only people who deserve reparations are the NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS> None more…
These crazy blacks have had everything in this world, but, use anything they have the wrong way. This is why they are still doing what they are doing.

Let’s talk about reparations for the White’s also, because, 58% of whites are killed by BLACK officers & nothing done. No words of any kind for those 58% abused white killings by Black officers…..

Here is my answer to this Blow Hard…..get the money from your KKK founding, started a Civil War over wanting to keep blacks in slavery, Democrap bunch….A Republican freed slaves and MLK and his family are Republican. Stop voting Democrap if you want to get off the plantation….
I don’t owe you a thing. I nor any family that I know of never owned slaves…..they were poor themselves….

Kdub, that is great advice to the blacks of our country. Will they follow it? Most will not because they still live and trust the Democrat plantation of welfare and rhetoric lies the Democrat media constantly sell them. I echo your comment about white Americans, we never owned slaves. There is no one alive today who was a slave or who owned slaves. We need to realize this and stop any story of reparations. The media constantly sell the myth about racism; which there is very little left in our country. Most people alive today, only want to live in peace and liberty for all. Also, another myth the media spreads is that black people can not be racist; they can be haters of whites as much as whites can be haters of blacks. We need to just get alone and support each other in pursuit of happiness.

Not one American alive today ever held a slave.
Not one black person in America today has ever been a slave in America.

So, if this asshat finds a slave or a slaveholder somewhere in some other country, let him go for it. Let him demand reparations for that slave in that country.

And, go take a royal flush cause I’ll never pay a cent for a crime I didn’t commit.

Oh that’s right, we’ve all been paying for forever in welfare benefits, foodstamps, and all kinds of freebies for these gimmes.

Don’t confuse their agenda with the facts. That said, I know plenty of “minority” folks who aren’t toeing that “liberal”, “give me everything” line. I’m pretty sure this BET founder, Robert Johnson isn’t one of them. He not only seems to be toeing the line, he also wants to own it. But then again, being as he’s been tasked as the czar of the liberal, “we want free stuff” crowd he’s just doing his job.

A “cop out”, I know…

The formula for success in this country for most people is: get a good education; stay out of trouble with the law; work hard; don’t start having babies until you are married; contribute to society–bring value to the marketplace,

Hmmmm the FIRST Slave Owner, according to what records I could locate was actually BLACK, who had sued an Indentured Servant to maintain his servitude beyond what the individual believed was his indenture contract. The individual was made his slave by the court. BOTH people were black. So, since a Black Man started Slavery in North America……

Yup…. and when the first black slave’s black owner died his race was used in determining whether to give his property (including his indentured servant-slave) to a white or a black “owner”. In the late 1600’s the deceased owner’s property was awarded to a white man because the original (deceased) black owner (who had served his full indenture and had obtained his own level of wealth in the colony) was not recognized as a citizen of the colony BECAUSE he was black. That particular transfer was ordered by a colonial judge at the time. Nearly four centuries later and we’re still wrestling with that terrible decision. IMHO

An aside… we’ve moved well beyond those decisions made over 300 years ago. It appears to me that those who are calling for reparations today who aren’t indentured, haven’t been indentured like their ancestors were are failing their forefather’s expectations. Absent any obvious, justifiable evidence that would suggest a remedy of retribution, there doesn’t seem to be any moot point to the discussion. It’s over with… at least for me. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Bobby!

America has already paid $20+ Trillion to “level the playing” which was LBJ’s “Great Society” goal. It failed miserable and we’re still suffering from most of the useless programs.

Someone should do the math as the $14 Trillion would divvy out to about $2,000 per Black “family unit”. It will only drive up the price of illicit street drugs and will probably be poked up the nose in a month . . . . drug gangs will be very pleased with this 100% ignorant program; i.e., Reparations 2.

Here’s my question: Who is going to pay for it? Billionaires? Good, let’s start with HIS fortune, and then give him back his share of the reparations.

But seriously — who pays? Asians? American Indians? Hispanics? People whose ancestors come to America after 1865? Union Civil War soldier descendants? Black Africans who arrived after 1865? Mixed race people?

Similar problems pop up when considering who should GET the reparations.

One thing’s for sure — it would INCREASE — not decrease — racial animosity.

The other sure thing? Five years later, the complaint will be that the amount of the reparations was too low. MORE reparations will be demanded.

Demands like this bozo makes pleases the KKK and other white supremacist groups. They know it will aid their moribund recruiting efforts.

All the civil war dead men alone paid all the reparations. Needed. Johnson Great Society paid it again. No one living today ever owned a slave. So who is supposed to pay reparations today. No One. And remember it was Lincoln and the Republicans that freed the slaves.
