On Tuesday, the House voted to give $4.55 billion to black and American Indian “farmers” who claim the Department of Agriculture or the Interior Department discriminated against them in some way. The word “farmers” is in quotation marks because, in one lawsuit alone, five times as many people filed for refunds than ever owned or operated a farm in any way. As we described in October, this is part of Barack Obama’s plan to give minority groups that vote heavily Democratic — including blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, and women – “stealth reparations.” The standard of evidence for discrimination is startlingly low, which fuels the number of applicants ready to cash in at the taxpayers’ expense. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, is an uncompromising patriot who urged his fellow Congressmen to vote against the funding and to “make investigation of Pigford fraud a top priority.” This is part of his impassioned (and unfortunately unheeded) speech on the House floor against this big government wealth transfer.
