Kamala Harris seeks the (almost) highest office in our great land, the most powerful position in the free world. Freudian slip that Harris referred to a future “Harris administration” at a virtual roundtable in Arizona last month? Maybe she missed that her name is in the VP slot or maybe she doesn’t understand that “me too” refers to the movement advocating for sexual harassment victims and not “she too” for president.
Either way, no time like the present to explore who Kamala Harris is despite that we’re not supposed to look critically at her record. The media isn’t curious and dare anyone raise any questions, cries of misogyny abound.
So, does that mean democrats are misogynists? They resoundingly rejected Harris during the presidential primaries. Her poll numbers dropped to single digits and even her native state of California rejected Harris for president when likely Democratic primary voters, by 61% to 24%, thought Harris should quit.
Harris’ allegiance to “me too” is predicated on what is expedient for her. She was outraged by and rushed to judgment with Blasey-Ford’s unsubstantiated allegations, brutally attacking nominee Kavanaugh in front of the cameras while monetizing her performance by posting thousands of fundraising ads off the Kavanaugh hearings. She even used an edited video to play “gotcha” with Kavanaugh except she got caught.
Then, lest we all forget, primary candidate Harris was unequivocally indignant when declaring she believed Biden’s sexual harassment accusers and said they should be heard. “I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it.” There were at least eight in number, including Tara Reade, whose accusations against Joe Biden are too appalling to write here and apparently too much for 60 Minutes voters in the United States, but fine to air on 60 Minutes Australia. Once selected as Biden’s VP running mate, voila, Harris abandoned Reade, sanctimoniously standing by her man Joe.
And speaking about changing positions when good for her, recall how Harris attacked Biden for his civil rights record, offended by the segregationists whose company Biden kept, and calling out Biden’s objection to busing. Not an issue now that Harris is Biden’s running mate. Will the real Kamala Harris please stand up.
Harris touts her time as a prosecutor but she sides with the anarchists destroying our cities, intimidating and hurting innocent citizens, breaking the law and causing mayhem. She refers to them as “a movement that is fueled by the diversity, the beautiful diversity, of [those] demanding change and justice … They are not going to stop and everyone beware because they aren’t going to stop before election day in November and they are not going to stop after election day … they should not let up and they should not.” Not exactly the law and order, safety first leadership this country needs at the moment.
Let’s be honest, though, Harris isn’t worried since she has secret service protection and is well-protected by armed security when in the Capitol. The demonstrators also happen to be Biden-Harris voters no doubt.
Harris praises the “brilliance” and “impact” of BLM, claiming it “has been the most significant agent for change within the criminal justice system.” Yet, she ignores its violent and destructive actions, and she turns her back on the fact that BLM is an anti-Jewish hate group. As Professor Dershowitz aptly stated, BLM engages in a “war on the Jewish people.”
Recall Harris’ visit with Jacob Blake, Sr. in Kenosha. After the meeting, she called his an “incredible family.” Honestly, would you describe someone who said of Jews; “[a] Jew can’t tell me s*** period,” “[t]he Jewish media picks who is a terrorists and is not,” “I’m with Farrakhan 100,” “[w]arning for Jews in Pittsburgh no warning for gunman in Kentucky” an incredible family? More examples exist but you get the drift. He also posted a photograph of a white Jesus floating in a toilet bowl.
It also doesn’t bother Harris just a bit that hers is the party of anti-Semites. AOC, Omar, Talib, Pressley and others don’t even hide their prejudice. Harris proudly stands with them as she did with the six speakers at the Democrat National Convention who are fans of Louis Farrakhan. (He’s the one who calls Jews “termites” and Hitler a “very great man.”) That her husband is Jewish is convenient but not probative. Just look at the radical Jewish organization J Street. Virulently anti-Israel, J Street held a fundraiser for Biden-Harris. Like J Street, Harris supports the disastrous Obama-Biden Iran deal that gave the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism the path to nuclear weapons. She said Trump’s shredding of the Iran deal was a “huge misstep” and that she would re-join it. Like J Street, her Senate votes make clear she doesn’t oppose the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement or place high priority on security assistance to Israel.
There’s a lot more about Harris that is worrisome and should be worrisome to the American people. Here are some additional highlights of what Harris has in store for our country if the Democrat party takes over. Brace yourself because these are radical and destructive: significantly higher taxes (referring to AOC’s 70-80% top taxes rates as “bold ideas”), single payer socialized medicine (aka the Bernie Sanders $32 trillion plan), the elimination of private insurance (telling Americans, “let’s move on”), passage of the Green New Deal (the “most aggressive and progressive” version, as she says), the end of fracking, open borders with government-funded health care for illegal aliens, and sanctuary cities.
The list goes on and on. Kamala Harris, whether as vice president or, as she “faux paxed,” at the top of the ticket, is unacceptable. She is radical in her positions and cagey in hiding them. She is driven by a radical agenda that is out of step with the values of our exceptional country. Ours is not a country where thuggery, anarchy and violence are acceptable, where the federal government engulfs us, dictates our health decisions, and governs our daily lives. This is Kamala Harris and this is today’s Democrat party. Rejecting her doesn’t amount to misogyny. It means we wish to preserve the exceptionalism that is America.
