Democrats Push Charges of Racism for Purposes of Convenience

In June 2019, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., tore into former Vice President Joe Biden in a Democratic primary debate. She openly suggested that he was a racist whose past political activity would have kept a “little girl” like her from attending integrated public school. About a year later, Biden selected Harris for his vice presidential candidate. It followed naturally that some intrepid reporter might ask Harris about why she had joined forces with such a historic bigot.

So far, Harris has been asked that question twice. Stephen Colbert asked, obviously assuming that she had prepared an answer. She hadn’t. Instead, Harris broke into her now-famous Awkward Joker Cackle, saying with a laugh, “It was a debate!” Colbert quickly tried to laugh with her to alleviate the extraordinary tension — and to back away from the unforced revelation that Harris is simply a political hack willing to leverage charges of racism for career gain.

Now, political observers might figure that such a terrifying brush with unmasking might prompt Harris to think through the question. She still hasn't. Over the weekend, ABC News' Robin Roberts asked Harris the same question. And Harris' answer was no better: "I think that that conversation is a distraction from what we need to accomplish right now and what we need to do." Harris again confirmed that her allegations of racism against Biden were merely a tool in her arsenal -- a tool to be wielded when convenient and stored away for possible future use when not.

Unfortunately, Harris isn't the only political figure who sees charges of racism as a convenient weapon, rather than as serious allegations requiring actual evidence. Democratic politicians appear to have latched on to the simple joys of charging political opponents with racism at the drop of a hat. According to the Associated Press, Democrats have taken, for example, to charging those who mispronounce Harris' first name with racism -- as though it is perfectly obvious that the emphasis in "Kamala" lies on the first syllable rather than the second.

And it's not merely that Democrats now levy frivolous racism charges with ease.

Democrats are willing to jump -- without any evidence and to dire consequence -- to the conclusion that any incident involving black Americans is rife with racism. Thus, this week, when a black man named Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was shot by police officers and video leading up to the shooting was released, Democrats rushed to condemn the police, even while explicitly acknowledging that they didn't have the facts.

Biden released a statement with staggering irresponsibility: He called for an "immediate, full and transparent investigation" but openly stated that "the officers must be held accountable"; he claimed that America had woken up "yet again with grief and outrage that yet another black American is a victim of excessive force"; he called the shooting an "inflection point" and yet another symptom of "systemic racism." Again, Biden had no access to the facts. But that didn't stop him from levying charges of racism.

It wasn't just Biden. Gov. Tony Evers, D-Wis. -- whose state investigative system will be handling the case -- immediately announced, "While we do not have all of the details yet, what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country."

And so, Kenosha burned. And the narrative has been set: The shooting was unjustified, and racist at that. No evidence has been presented; none need be.

And if the facts don't match the accusations, the facts will be put aside. Harris herself has continued to push the absolute lie, for example, that Michael Brown was murdered in Ferguson, Missouri, an allegation firmly rebutted by former President Obama's Department of Justice. Fealty to the narrative is the sole qualifier for power in Democratic circles.

Will any of this alleviate racism? Of course not. But it's not designed to. It's designed to achieve and attain power. And, so far, the strategy seems to be working.

  1. The biggest racists are DEMOCRATS!!!! They are just VERY GOOD AT HIDING IT! They [99% of them anyway] support abortion that prevents a live child from being born. Since abortion meets the definition of killing it more correctly would be called MURDER. The majority of women getting an ‘abortion’ are minorities [by Planned parenthood’s own records] making the victims minorities. Democrats support killing minorities in the womb [Planned Parenthood was founded by a known racist, Margret Sanger, to depress minority populations]!!!!!

  2. Is kamala still in congress ? Why doesn’t she do her job instead of sitting around trying to find something to WHINE about ? Maybe she could get a couple of those overpaid kids who really do not want to work, playing the sport they chose to enter so they could live the life of Riley, and get them to find something else to blame on OUR Forefathers and past revolutionists ! I haven’t seen or noticed anyone celebrating slavery and if they think they were the only ones on this earth who were ever mistreated through the course of history, they would be wrong ! LET IT REST ! IT’S OVER !

  3. Democrat’s have caused enough trouble now they want to continue to lie , K. Harris sure canaged her limited mind after being chosen as V.P. Which are supposed to beleave now?

  4. Democrats are the very definition of racism!
    Democrats are the very definition of murderers!
    Democrats are the very definition of insanity !
    Democrats are the very definition of vial!
    Democrats are the very definition of corruption!
    Democrats are the very definition of liars!
    Democrats are the very definition of traitors!
    Democrats are the very definition of idiots!
    Democrats are the very definition of rioters!
    Democrats are the very definition of scum!
    Democrats are the very definition of freeloaders!
    Democrats are the very definition of the n word!
    Since racism is their satanic tool toward their Fascist agenda and narratives let’s discuss the n word!
    The n word first appears in America during the intervention of slaves to America, initially used and shortened from Nigeria the origin country black slavers kidnapped tribal blacks from to sell to To black slave owners , white slave owners, European slave owners, Indian slave owners, etc . It was simply the standard description of slaves from Africa regardless of their country of origin within the continent of Africa! A key point to be noticed here blacks sold blacks to blacks and that doesn’t fit this racism narrative blacks are trying to blame on whites alone! What this sounds like is what’s happening today in America only now blacks are rioting and burning and killing blacks as well as whites and children as the destroy their own democrat black communities and businesses in democrat states! Which one would ask why only democrat states? Well that’s simple too!
    Should they bring this vial criminal activity in civil states they would not be tolerated, they would be stopped and or killed! I digress!
    Clearly the use of the n word was derogatory in its inception in America merely because slavery is wrong!
    It must be noted that there were more white slaves and indentured servants a volunteer slave position, agreed upon by both blacks and whites for slavery for a period of time for the privilege of passage and a job once arriving in America!
    For back then just coming to America was an escape from tyrannical regimes , yes even back then people were fleeing from Europe, Africa , Russia and China to escape by any means possible to escape communism and Fascism !
    Why ? America then as it does now was their only option of a free future at least some day maybe, and their was no future where they were!
    This raises the question would blacks be nothing more than tribal cannibals living in grass huts hoping up and down with a spear in their hand hoping someday to own a goat!
    Most places in Africa are still that way today with the exclusion of the practice of Cannibalism thanks to Christianity!
    Did slavery actually help black Americans escape from their heritage and positively effect their lives over time from what they were destined to if left in Africa?
    If they choose , the sky is the limit here in America for blacks , they can go to school get a job buy a home , own a car and become the President of the United States!
    Wow ! That wouldn’t have been possible if it were not for slavery here in America! Hmmmmmmm!
    I have a friend of color who brought me to the above conclusion, go figure if it were not for HISTORY something blacks and the left are trying to erase blacks might not exist in America at all!
    Back to my friend , we were discussing racism While playing golf on a beautiful sunny Thursday morning a day I will remember the rest of my life for it explained things I never would have understood without my friend intelligence and he absolutely floored me with a statement he made, a statement I had never heard a human of color make!
    He said I am great full for slavery for with out it his ass would still be Africa ! I said what!
    Yes he said I don’t want to live in a hut in Africa trying to make enough money selling monkey brains to tourists so I can own a goat! I love America, the opportunities it has given me, my family! There is only one country to live and it’s America! I am free here!
    I said how did you achieve your success with all this racism we here so much about?
    His response will surprise democrats and many malcontent blacks !
    He said My wife and I WORKED for it!
    I was born poor and white and I said me too!
    I worked for it too, we exchanged smiles and continued are game , he beat me badly that day in the corse and I respected him as a true human more than any other man I have met before or since!
    Again I digress!
    Back to the n word !
    Hopefully my friend once again can shed some light on the word ! This time from my observation not my friends mentoring! My friend grew up in the ghetto’s of Cleveland Ohio, which I bring to you to establish his circumstance, he did not grow up among whites or privilege!
    On several occasions I have been at his home and be the only white man at the table! One of the boys if you will just not of the same color skin but just another human so conversation was among friends and uninhabited!
    Well if you have been around 4 or 5 black men in a conversation there is one word you hear from each man every 5th word and guess what it’s the n word!
    It’s a form of endearment not a slur it’s meaning is used more like my brother than a vial condescending racist slur!
    At first it made me uncomfortable until I redefined it based on moment and circumstance!
    So let’s recap this novel before we move on!
    1 The n word was originally a description of origin to a race of oppressed or a race of opportunists to escape from Tyranny!
    2 The n word when used by blacks among blacks is a term of brotherhood!
    So let’s move on to the n word definition for today!
    3 Last year to today’s definition of the n word was/is a vial term defined by democrats as a political tool to falsely promote oppression and communist agendas to cast the blame on blacks and whites, while the blm movement Hollywood and the media have defined it as a vial oppression on the black race to impede equality by white supremacy ! Along with the narrative that police unfairly shoot more black than white innocent victims or criminals !
    Factually the basis of the third definition is nonsense,
    Of coarse shootings of innocent black victims does happen but far more innocent white victims are shot then blacks by the police!
    Their is a black shooting epidemic but it’s not police it’s blacks killing blacks a true pandemic if you will not hundreds but thousands of innocent blacks are killed by blacks every year and that’s thousands to many!
    The press and democrats once again as they have though our history are throwing blacks under the bus as they have manipulated blacks to do the rioting and murdering to replace America with communist agendas. Should this happen blacks will be in worse shape then they were in 1860 along with all other races for communism and communist regimes make the oppression demonstrated in Quentin Tarantino’s Django
    to the black race look like a trip to Disney land!
    Racism for blacks if defined by a communist takeover of America will be the complete elimination of blacks for communism is based on white or yellow supremacy!
    Which is only good for the leaders and all others regardless of race become slaves without voice or tolerance! blacks will have no rights should democrats succeed in their communist agenda!
    4 Today’s definition of the n word by races other then the black race!
    Prior to these vial riots racism was almost eliminated in America it was only kept alive by the media , democrats and the black race itself, not all blacks just the criminal element within the race for most black people are American Patriots with families, grand kids , all pursuing the American Dream!
    However the actions of a few blacks with the help of Antifa and George Soro’s globalist movement now all races see blacks as :
    Fatherless families
    Welfare burdens
    Unwilling to educate
    Gang members
    in short A crime wave
    we can thank Hollywood the media and democrats for this false narrative!
    However other races are now prejudice again for blm has overrun cities, murdered children , innocent humans , looted and acted without any restraint or decency!
    What else can other races think when the police have been defunded and told by democrat mayors to allow blacks to make our cities unsafe! stripped away safety for all Americans, making every American slaves to fear! Oppression and chaos!
    All other races are not prejudice because of the color of a races skin they are prejudice do to a races vial actions !
    Once again it’s not completely the black races fault for it is the democrats and their media who are to blame as well once again throwing the black race under the bus in the name of democrats supremacy over all who dwell in America!
    Please note it’s the elite democrats running this show both black and white starting with Obama and draining down through out all rich democrat politicians like peelousy, schiff and their media including Hollywood and the tech companies!
    Prejudice is back in America!
    Only the black race can now stop prejudice toward the black race after your vial actions throughout America!
    Stop the bad eggs in Your race from within , police your criminals the mayor’s have tied the polices hands !
    Unless the black race becomes human in other races eyes again the n word , the worlds most vial word will capture your achievements and send you right back to 1860 or worse should the democrats succeed in communism in America!

  5. This is exactly why Democrats are not believed anymore. They find any disruptive movement and applaud it. What is happening now needs compassions,understanding and working together. They prefer devision.

  6. Do you really expect us to believe anything the demonic satanic corrupt untrustworthy Democrats say which is a pack of lies. They should be ashamed of themselves but they are not and they want you to believe it. That is why America is going to turn all states Red Republicans and no lying corrupt untrustworthy Democrats.

  7. Her smile says it all. She is loving it that some people might believe the bullcrap she is peddling. Democrats have a long history of racism.
