Jackass Ideas of the Jackass Party

Of all the cockeyed notions promulgated by the Democrats, and there are scores of them, perhaps the most appalling is the one that calls for people who never owned slaves or mistreated blacks paying extortion to black people who not only never picked cotton but never knew anyone who had.

Of all the cockeyed notions promulgated by the Democrats, and there are scores of them, perhaps the most appalling is the one that calls for people who never owned slaves or mistreated blacks paying extortion to black people who not only never picked cotton but never knew anyone who had.

But Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee doesn’t care about those inconvenient truths. She insists that we still have slavery in the U.S. and nothing will get rid of it except a redistribution of wealth. And where have I heard that before?

Naturally, Rep. Steve Cohen, a typical Jewish political hack, agrees with her. As do several of those contending for their party’s brass ring, and the opportunity to lose to Donald Trump in 2020. Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Beto O'Rourke, Bernie Sanders, Julian Castro, Eric Swalwell and Peter Buttigieg, all prostrated themselves before his eminence, Al Sharpton, and swore to pass reparations legislation if they became president.

Kamala Harris has also come out in favor of reparations, even though, with an East Indian mother, she could only lay claim to half a share.

Even Joe Biden, who had, along with his boss Barack Obama, opposed reparations in the past, can be counted on to change his position in the near-future, as he has on just about every other issue. It just goes to prove you can teach an old dog new tricks, even one that’s 11-years-old. In dog years, that is.

As I see it, we have already been paying reparations to black Americans for decades in the form of welfare and affirmative action. In addition, our courts have ruled that special congressional districts have to be carved out for them to ensure that the likes of Maxine Waters, James Clyburn, Sheila Jackson Lee, Elijah Cummings, Frederica Wilson, Hakeem Jeffries, Al Green, Hank Johnson and Ilhan Omar, can continue being elected, although no other group in the nation is granted that unique privilege.

If I were a descendant of the 350,000 Union soldiers who lost their lives in a war which resulted in freeing millions of black slaves, I’d be sorely tempted to petition Congress, particularly the privileged members of the Black Caucus, for financial redress for their ultimate sacrifice.

But my parents and their parents were all back in Russia at the time dealing with the Czar and his Cossacks, who made America’s slaveowners look like pussy cats.

If we live long enough, God willing, we might see the day when there will be a campaign to give reparations to Conservatives who are being libeled, slandered and censored these days by the liberal fascists who control the media and college campuses.

Joe Biden made the mistake of saying a few nice things about former segregationist senators Eastland and Talmadge, saying that for all their obvious faults, they were willing to compromise so that the Senate could actually get something done, unlike the current crop. You would have thought he learned his lesson after the party faithful came after him with a lynch rope for referring to V.P. Pence as “a decent guy.”

Sen. Kamala Harris, who, like Barack Obama, likes to pretend she isn’t half-white, was quick to attack her rival for the presidential nomination, saying: “If those guys [Eastland and Talmadge, both Democrats, by the way] were still in charge, I wouldn’t be a member of the Senate today.”

Thus making the strongest case for segregation I have ever heard.


Frankly, I have never understood how united blacks remain, no matter how different they may be as individuals when it comes to education, church attendance, professional success or wealth. It’s not just that you find them all voting for the exact same dunces, but you found most of them siding with O.J. Simpson and applauding his lawyer’s [Johnnie Cochran] appearance at a music awards event and mindlessly chanting “Free O.J.” even though it seemed very likely he had cold-bloodedly murdered his ex-wife and her boyfriend.

You also find the 29% of blacks who marry and raise their offspring together defending the 71% who relegate their offspring to either being aborted or raised in poverty by generations of unwed welfare recipients.

How are white people supposed to differentiate between street thugs and drug dealers and those who are productive and law-abiding when they themselves don’t seem capable of doing it?

In a related matter, I should mention that I have published three books of interviews. The books include interviews with scores of U.S. senators, House members, radio pundits, writers, business magnates, movie stars, composers, performers, professional athletes and even a former president.

What they all have in common is that with the exception of Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, they are all white.

It’s not for lack of trying. I approached well over a 150 black politicians, athletes, movie and TV stars, businessmen and musicians. Only about 10% of them even bothered turning me down. Most simply ignored my invitation to be included with the likes of Gerald Ford, Art Linkletter, Charles Krauthammer, Gene Kelly, Kellyanne Conway, Ernest Borgnine, Joe Wambaugh, Dennis Prager, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Bernard Goldberg, Billy Wilder, Pat Sajak, Henry Mancini, Phyllis Schlafly, Pat Robertson, Curt Schilling, Orson Bean and Ginger Rogers.

The books didn’t sell well, which, in a way, may have been a good thing. If they had been best sellers, you can be sure that some of those who snubbed my invitation, including Oprah Winfrey, Sidney Poitier, Tiger Woods, Bill Cosby, Larry Doby, Harry Belafonte and Quincy Jones, would have accused me of bigotry, complaining that I hadn’t included any blacks, except for a token black Conservative minister.


It isn’t only America’s black population who keep disappointing me. My fellow Jews do it on a regular basis. But at least they only do so in about 70% of the cases, not the 95% mark that blacks consistently achieve.

Most people want to fit in, even if fitting in with their social circle calls for adorning themselves with tattoos, nose rings and tongue studs. At the same time, people also want to feel special about themselves.

All of which helps to explain why so many Jewish college students join with the Arab and Muslim students to stage campus demonstrations against Israel, of all places.

It’s not enough for these fools to display their opposition to the only democratic, productive and pro-American, nation in the Middle East. They also feel compelled to join forces with the very barbarians who would gladly initiate the next Holocaust.


After a couple of high-profile injuries caused by foul balls flying into the stands, the Chicago White Sox owners have finally decided to extend the nets and protect the fans sitting down the lines past first and third base at the Guaranteed Rate Stadium.

I have never understood why every ballpark hasn’t done the same, especially when the stands are filled with little kids and parents holding infants. Why should they have to worry about balls traveling 100 mph just so a few fans can boast about catching them? Besides which, most of them are grabbed off the cement after they’ve stopped bouncing.

If it’s so important for these clucks to go home with a baseball, let them pay a visit to the souvenir shop, plunk down their five bucks and ask the salesclerk to lob them the ball so they can honestly claim they caught it.
