Democrat Representative Ayanna Pressley, speaking in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, said activists have been given a mandate and that America needs to “pay us what you owe us.”
Shockingly, she made these comments on the floor of the House of Representatives, directed at “Madam Speaker” – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Pressley asserted that “centuries of institutionalized oppression” still need to be corrected in this nation and “racism in America is as structural as the marble pillars of this very institution.”
She said this as a black woman in the halls of Congress. She said this despite the same rioting and anti-police sentiments taking place under eight years of a black president.

‘Pay Us What You Owe Us’
And for those of you who had “reparations” on your race-baiting bingo card, well, Democrats finally revealed that all of these riots haven’t been about George Floyd or justice at all, but rather, money.
“Black Lives Matter is a mandate from the people. It’s time,” she claimed. “Pay us what you owe us. Our Black skin is not a crime, it is the beautiful robe of nation builders.”
Pressley called out groups that have been victims of racial injustice.
“On behalf of every family member that has been forced to see their loved one lynched on national television,” she announced. “Driving while Black. Jogging while Black. Sleeping while Black. We have been criminalized for the very way we show up in the world.”
A vast majority of the prison populations and victims of excessive use of force are male as well. Is the system of law enforcement also sexist?

Defund the Police
Pressley was one of the first Democrats to outright admit that the radical left’s push to “defund the police” was all about reparations.
During a TIME100 Talks discussion earlier this week, the Squad member called the push to defund a “reckoning” and said that “first responders have a role to play in society, but they needn’t play a role in every part of society.”
Notice these same activists calling to eliminate the police are the ones who cry when they aren’t there, as we saw in Seattle’s CHAZ.

“This is simply about a refund,” Pressley said of taking resources away from law enforcement. “This is about true reparations.”
No, this is about handing out free money to people in the hopes of buying votes.
