The Reparations Vultures Get Shot Down, Again

What a great win for common sense:

A federal judge Wednesday served a blow to the modern slavery reparations movement by tossing out a lawsuit asking corporations that reaped profits from slave labor to pay up.

In a 104-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Charles R. Norgle said slavery has caused "tremendous suffering and ineliminable scars," but an attempt by slave descendants to seek reparations "more than a century after the end of the Civil War and the formal abolition of slavery fails."

The reparations vultures have few options left to them. They know they can't win this fight in the legislatures or by an kind of referendum, and their hope for allies in the courts have now been dashed. Guess they'll have to go back to trying to shake down big companies for "discrimination."
