Elizabeth Warren says reparations for Native Americans should be ‘part of the conversation’
2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., expanded on an already-radical proposal on Friday, telling reporters that Native Americans should be “part of the conversation” on reparations for African-Americans — a move that threatens to bring back her own history with Native Americans.
Taking questions from reporters ahead of a Democratic Party fundraiser in Manchester, N.H., Warren, she said that America has an “ugly history of racism” and outlined her ways to tackle it — including the possibility of reparations.

What My Days as a Marxist Taught Me About Modern Political Cults
There was a time when Das Kapital was my bible. It sits on one of the bookshelves that line my living room, alongside other artifacts from my youthful foray into Marxism.

I was certain I’d found the key to understanding the modern world; a truth so pure it would end the oppression of man by man.
4-Hour-Long Political Lecture To Be Disguised As Awards Show
A report coming out of Hollywood this afternoon revealed that a 4-hour-long political lecture scheduled for Sunday will be disguised as an awards show in order to drum up interest.
“See, if we just asked people to tune in for four hours of virtue-signaling and political posturing, we’d have zero viewers,” said one of the show’s organizers. “If we want to keep the three or four viewers we still have left, we have to pretend the purpose of this ceremony is to hand out awards for excellent movies released in the last year.”
