CO Councilwoman Pushes Tax on White-Owned Businesses as Reparations for ‘Stolen Land’

A city councilwoman in Denver, Colorado believes that white-owned businesses need to pay reparations for the sins of slavery.

Democrat socialist Candi CdeBaca, who is face a runoff election in June, declared that race-based taxes could be levied by the business improvement districts, which ice managed by local business owners, residents, and local government officials. She wants them to levy incremental tax increases and then redistribute the money to black owned businesses.

Not quite the heroic fight that she thinks it is, and certainly not a battle to embark on when you’re facing a re-election. People on the left aren’t very smart when it comes to things like this. No one in their right mind would vote for MORE taxes.

Check it out:

“Capitalism was built on stolen land, stolen labor, and stolen resources,” CdeBaca told the Greater Metro Denver Ministerial Alliance. “You could be collecting those extra taxes from white-led businesses all over the city and redistributing them to black and brown-owned businesses.”

Breitbart reports:

While a tax levy can be distributed to assist underserved businesses, the tax can’t be applied based on an individual’s skin color.  That would be illegal under federal law, but the 37-year-old argued this plan would not be illegal since the taxes levied are “voluntary.”

A spokesperson for Denver’s Department of Finance told 9 News this was false. 

“Non-residentially assessed property owners within the BID are required to pay the additional taxes/fees,” said spokesperson Courtney Meihls. “It’s not voluntary.” 

The footage of the councilwoman went viral after it was shared by the Libs of TikTok page, which racked up over 4 million views.

The general consensus is that her proposal has gone way too far!

Of course CdeBaca and her supporters are crying about the criticism, claiming that they are being “targeted by a while nationalist mob.” 

Her office said in a released statement, “This is the third time CdeBaca has been targeted by a white nationalist mob, and this is part of a concerted playbook to harass, intimidate, and silence progressives and in particular, marginalized communities.” 

Welcome to Biden’s America. Where woke runs rampant.
