Guaranteed Basic Income Rolls Out in Oakland

Incremental Marxism has escalated from the welfare state to indiscriminate coronavirus payments to the next illogical step: guaranteed basic income.

The mayor of Oakland, California, on Tuesday announced a privately funded program that will give low-income families of color $500 per month with no rules on how they can spend it.

Private will be replaced by coercive funding after this concept takes root. Liberal fools and their money may be easily parted, but taxpayers in general have deeper pockets. The idea of guaranteed basic income is…

…having a revival across the U.S. after some mayors launched small, temporary programs across the country in a coordinated campaign to convince Congress to adopt a national guaranteed income program.

The free money will be passed out on an explicitly racist basis.

Oakland’s project is significant because it is one of the largest efforts in the U.S. so far, targeting up to 600 families. And it is the first program to limit participation strictly to Black, Indigenous and people of color communities.

This is in part justified as “a nod to the legacy of the Black Panther Party, the political movement that was founded in Oakland in the 1960s.”

The Black Panthers were a violent revolutionary organization founded on Marxism and black supremacism. They were involved in drug dealing, pimping, rape, extortion, assault, and murder. With their focus on protesting against the police and America’s imaginary racist power structure, they served as a forerunner to today’s Black Lives Matter movement.

“Guaranteed income has been a goal of the Black Panther platform since its founding,” said Jesús Gerena, CEO of Family Independence Initiative, which is partnering with the program in Oakland. “Direct investment in the community in response to systemic injustices isn’t new.”

Bark “systemic injustice” and demand the government give you someone else’s money. It’s easier than working.

A form of guaranteed income could take effect for many parents this year as part of the latest federal stimulus package. Congress expanded the child tax credit, with the goal of giving many parents monthly payments of up to $300 per month. Those payments are temporary.

That plan to generate more poverty and thereby more Democrat voters by paying women to have children they can’t afford to raise will not be temporary for long.

In California, a proposal by Assemblyman Evan Low to give $1,000 a month to adults with certain incomes could cost up to $129 billion annually — more than half the state’s total budget — paid for by a new 1% tax on incomes above $2 million. Low said that bill is unlikely to pass this year, but he said his goal is to get people comfortable with the idea.

Once Democrats dispense with the filibuster, that can be imposed nationally.

You know what comes next after $1,000 per month: $2,000 per month. Soon people will demand $20,000, then $200,000, then $2,000,000 to keep pace with inflation. Every election will be won by whoever promises the largest increase in free money, until the money becomes worthless.

  1. […] you only get $500/month free money, but you don’t have to identify as an artist; you just have to be nonwhite. Whites get taxed to pay for it […]
