Democrats COVID Bill Gives $1.9 Billion to Black Farmers for “Racial Justice”

As The Gateway Pundit reported back in 2010 Pigford v. Glickman was a class action lawsuit against the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), alleging racial discrimination in its allocation of farm loans and assistance between 1983 and 1997. The lawsuit ended with a settlement in which the U.S. government agreed to pay African American farmers $50,000 each if they had attempted to get USDA help but failed. As of 2010, almost $1 billion was paid or credited to the farmers under the settlement’s consent decree.

More than 92,000 blacks signed up for reparations from the Obama USDA after the Pigford case was extended in 2010.

That turned out to be five times the number of blacks who were actually farming during the time period in question and would possibly qualify for the reparations. So-called “farmers” from inner-city Chicago even signed up for the farming handout.

Conservative Representatives Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Steve King (R-IA) called on the Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the Pigford Scandal back in 2010.

According to Breitbart the Pigford scheme remains one of the largest, most blatant frauds in American history. The story was ignored, for the most part, by the mainstream media.  This is despite proof uncovered by Breitbart News that the original lawsuit on behalf of a few hundred black farmers who suffered discrimination by the USDA was hijacked by lawyers and politicians as a scam to pay tens of thousands of people who claim they “attempted to farm.”

In February Marxist anti-American Senator Raphael Warnock and Senator Cory Booker (Spartacus) introduced plans to pay $5 billion to black farmers due to the coronavirus. 

Zero for white farmers and $5 billion for black farmers.  It’s a very good time to be a black farmer.

The two senators were able to shove $1.9 billion into their COVID bill for reparations for black farmers.

Trending Politics reported:

With the bill now headed for the Senate, much of the contents will be ignored by the media or cloaked in the guise of ‘racial justice’.

One of these is the use of $1 billion in taxpayer money for the advancement of ‘racial justice’ in farming, a scam that is championed by failed presidential candidate Cory “Spartacus” Booker.

While it is only a small part of the staggering $1.9 trillion that will be doled out – much to Democrat allies – GOP researchers are seeking to draw attention to the provision which was included in a three-page memo detailing the “liberal goodies” stuffed into the bill, a copy of which was obtained by Fox News.

The Democrat bill also includes $350 billion for blue states after their leaders destroyed their states.

At some point, your kids or grandkids will have to pay for these bailouts and reparations.
Eventually it will happen.
