When it came time to cough up — if that term is even appropriate in the COVID environment — actual cash in the form of reparations, a man, apparently among the throng of protesters milling about outside the Tulsa Trump rally decided to take a pass.
Upon being told by the protester that he was definitely oppressed, a Hispanic Trump supporter wearing a “God, Guns, and Trump” T-shirt took it to the next logical and satirical level: “I’m a minority, give me my reparations…give me my money.”
The other guy was only willing to give the Trump fan “a promise” of reparations.
All talk, no action, as President Trump might say in another context. In general, liberals like to spend other people’s money, in the form of confiscatory taxation, rather than their own.
The video of the exchange (embedded below) has since gone viral.
Speculation has emerged that the Democrats might officially propose reparations for America’s history of slavery in their party platform as part of the nomination process of Sleepy Joe Biden as their presidential standard-bearer. The California assembly has already advanced a bill to study the idea of paying reparations to black families.
“America First, all the way, Bro” the Trump fan, who appeared to be a merchandise vendor, declared to some other apparently hostile onlookers one of whom inexplicably asked the vendor where “his daddy was from.”
The patriot responded that his father was from America and that his grandfather served in WWII and his dad in Vietnam.
“Babies lives matter,” he added, among other things. [Warning for language]
The encounter attracted a lot of attention on social media. Here is a sample:

The white guy is actually seriously considering giving him reparations too 😂

yeah, have been in a similar situation. A guy lectured me about “racism is inherited”, and then I brought up the Chinese exclusion act and jokingly asked him (since he was white) if he will grant me reparation, he was like “oh, i think reparation should be done through taxes”😂

They have no idea what there fighting for, we minorities work hard, are proud, don’t need any reparations (unless you really want too) our generations love this country.

Trust me, these liberals always want the minorities to be oppressed. It’s all a control issue. They hate successful black men and women. All other minorities too. I don’t understand why everyone can’t see this.

This is the reaction of everyone on the left when you ask for THEIR money.
My money, no, not my money. I meant the government should pay for it, not me.

I’m Irish and my forefathers were foreigners that built the tunnels for New York. I feel I deserve part of the toll for New York City in reparations. 🤣

Awesome! They (Democrats, antifa, and blm. ) always talk a good game, but when it is time to pay up. Well that’s someone else problem.

Reparations for these spoiled woke people are like their allowance from their parents. It just magically appears out of nowhere every month without any effort from their part.

White liberals: please stop telling us we’re oppressed. Contrary you your beliefs, we are intelligent, business savvy and hard working. If we were oppressed, I think we would know it.
