Biden’s pick for VP has a wealth of views on her and her issues……let’s start with Donald the Orange…..of course it is some sort of birtherism….something he is known for in the past…..
“I heard it today that she doesn’t meet the requirements. I have no idea if that’s right.” That’s what President Trump had to say Thursday when asked about the racist conspiracy theory that Kamala Harris is ineligible for the vice presidency. He continued, per NPR, “I would have assumed that the Democrats would have checked that out before she gets chosen to run for vice president.” The conspiracy theory has made the rounds since Harris announced her run for president last year, and is making headlines again thanks to this column. But, as the AP and other media outlets note, there is zero credence to the idea; as Harris’ birth certificate shows, she was born in Oakland, California, near the city of Berkeley, where her mom (who is from India) and her dad (who is from Jamaica) met as graduate students.
Some have falsely claimed, on social media and elsewhere, that Harris would be ineligible to serve as president due to the fact that her parents were immigrants. “I can’t believe people are making this idiotic comment,” one expert told the AP last year. “She is a natural-born citizen and there is no question about her eligibility.” After Trump, who was also a driving force behind the “birther” conspiracy theory that plagued Barack Obama, made his comments about Harris, Joe Biden’s team was quick to respond. Trump is “the national leader of the grotesque, racist birther movement with respect to President Obama and has sought to fuel racism and tear our nation apart on every single day of his presidency,” says a campaign rep. “This is what racism sounds like,” adds a senior adviser.
Another cheap shot from a toad that is king of the cheap shots.
Does anyone remember back to the Dark Ages of 2019…..Biden had some accusations of improper conduct leveled at him….and Harris stated that she believed these women…..
“I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” Harris said at a presidential campaign event in Nevada.
I am not a fan of Harris….she is a pro-business centrists that will do little to change the social upheaval we are experiencing…..
With the selection of Kamala Harris to be the running mate of Joe Biden, the framework of the 2020 elections has been set. As was to be expected, the Democrats have chosen the most right-wing candidates to run the most right-wing campaign possible.
There is a certain inevitability to the choice of Harris. In July of last year, the World Socialist Web Site—based on a survey of who would be the worst, most reactionary and at the same time most suitable choice for second spot on the Democratic Party ticket—predicted that Harris would most likely be named the vice presidential candidate if she failed to win the nomination. She had all the ruthlessness, narcissism and careerism requisite for the job, plus the ethnic background to suit the Democrats’ obsession with racial and gender identity.
Kamala Harris is a dyed-in-the wool political reactionary.
Harris is the perfect candidate to explain the real path of the Democrats…..
Kamala Harris might be the perfect lens to reveal who the Democrats really are. A good run-down on her track record highlights her assertion that “It is not progressive to be soft on crime.” As a San Francisco social worker, I sat on the school district committee that met with families of chronically truant students. Once, when we asked a student why he didn’t go to school, he said there was too much police tape and shootings at his school bus stop. Harris, as CA Attorney General, was putting parents/caregivers in jail if their child was chronically truant. Also as Attorney General, she denied a DNA test to Kevin Cooper, a very likely innocent man who came within hours of execution in 2004. Such positions certainly furthered her political career as a tough-on-crime, prosecution-friendly politician, as well as garner political and financial support from police and prison guards.
Harris denounces Trump’s “endless wars” but offers no specific plans to end them. During her presidential primary campaign, she failed to commit to withdrawing all US troops from Afghanistan, even by the end of a first term in 2024.
Harris ticks all the boxes….centrist…..pro-business…..war hawk…..law and order…..black….female…..perfect!
We all have heard of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS)…(not to be confused with STD)…..this is an insult leveled at liberals for their dislike of Donald the Orange…..but then “Anybody But Trump” mentality tells me there is such a disease out there and the Dems are ate up with it.
The choice this election are slim to nothing……Biden or Trump….hold your nose and vote for Tweedle Dumb or Tweedle Dumber…..neither one is acceptable to me…..
For kindness sake, one of them, Joe Biden, should be put back out to pasture; for the sake of justice, the other, Trump, should be put behind bars.
Neither Biden nor Harris ticks any boxes for me with the exception is they are not Trump or Pence……is that enough for my vote?
That is a decision I will make in the coming days…..are my principles more important that a dislike of Trump?
For God Sake….Learn Stuff!
For God Sake…..VOTE!
