Disabled Farmer Sues Biden Admin. for Race-Based Financial Relief

A disabled Wisconsin dairy farmer is suing the Biden administration over a COVID-19 loan forgiveness program – alleging it is racist because whites aren’t eligible, Fox News reported.

The farmer, Adam Faust appeared in an interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday, and  argued that it was unfair to create racial criteria for participation in the relief program.

Faust told Carlson, “Racism against anybody is wrong and we can’t have a government picking and choosing who they are going to give any program to based solely on the color of their skin… Everything that we have all learned growing up is racism is wrong, and now, all of a sudden, the federal government seems to think that racism is acceptable in certain ways. And it should never be acceptable.”

The $4 billion program forgives loans for farmers and ranchers who are black, native American, Hispanic, or Asian – but not those who are white.

Faust’s attorney Rick Esenberg who joined Faust in the interview said ‘There is no such thing as benign discrimination. There is no such thing as a little ‘makeup discrimination’ to even things out.’

Esenberg argued the law discriminates against certain races therefore cannot be legal and pressed that the universal move towards equity is damaging to American principle.
