Obama controlled Justice Department to issue $1.25 Billion bailout for black farmers.


Once again, black farmers who cry “racism” are going to get free cash at taxpayer expense!

Thousands of alleged black farmers who did not get free cash during the Clinton “black farmer bailout,” will now be showered with cash by the Obama administration.

The claim that black farmers must “prove discrimination” is comical. It is simply free money for any black farmer who ever applied for a Federal program and was turned down. Yet, much larger numbers of white farmers have been turned down by the same programs.

To highlight what a total scam this is. The US Census puts the number of black farmers at 18,500. During the first black farmer bailout, 100,000 blacks filed claims. Over five times the total number of black farmers. Yet the Clinton controlled justice department dished out over a billion. This “Harvest of Lies” is nothing less than taking from the white man to give to the black man.

The settlement of the case, known as Pigford II, is contingent on Congress approving $1.15 billion for the farmers, in addition to $100 million already provided in the Farm Bill.

For decades, black farmers said they were unjustly being denied farm loans or subjected to longer waits for loan approval because of racism, and accused the USDA of not responding to their complaints.

The original Pigford lawsuit, named after North Carolina farmer Timothy Pigford, was filed against the USDA in 1997, and settled two years later when the government compensated black farmers left out of USDA loan and assistance programs.

More than 13,000 farmers able to provide proof of their claims of discrimination were awarded $50,000 each and given debt relief in a package worth more than $1 billion.

But tens of thousands of claims were denied for missing the filing deadline. The settlement in Pigford II would allow these farmers to again make their claims.
