Rep. Clyburn: Black Unemployment Low? ‘We Were Fully Employed During Slavery’:

“Let’s leave the words aside,” said Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who calls Trump a “king” and voted to impeach him in December, said,  “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” said Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

What an evil thing to say. To compare the voluntary employment relationships between free human beings (employers and employees) with slavery. To conflate the dignity of earning one’s success with the horror of being enslaved. To associate, however tangentially, those who are today involved in voluntary labor transactions, or who are fostering the free-market climate required for voluntary labor transactions, with slaves, slaveowners, or enablers of slavery. To use slavery as a way of diminishing the news of good things happening today.

Gross. Manipulative. Repellent.

Leftism makes people say evil things. Leftism makes normal people into bad people. Evil trees produce evil fruits—bad ideologies do bad things.
