Kamala Harris revealed an unconventional reason for supporting marijuana legalization last week- her own Jamaican ancestry.
When asked about why she supported decriminalizing the drug, she said that “half my family’s from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?”
It seems she said this unaware that many Jamaicans aren’t thrilled to see their country associated with the recreational drug- including her own father, Donald Harris, who immigrated to the United States from the Caribbean island nation.
Harris condemned his own daughter’s remarks in quite surprising and harsh terms, in a statement provided to Jamaica Global Online. Not only did he express his disapproval of her comments on marijuana, but he also went on to take a stab at the identity politics present within the Democratic Party and Kamala Harris campaign.
“My dear departed grandmothers(whose extraordinary legacy I described in a recent essay on this website), as well as my deceased parents , must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.”
Ouch. It’s enough to question how exactly the younger Harris got the impression of a connection between Jamaicans and marijuana growing up in her father’s household, although she’s admitted to using the drug years ago.
The elder Harris isn’t the first from the island nation to express displeasure at the association between Jamaica and Rastafarian-style marijuana culture. Jamaica is said to have the most churches per square kilometer in the world, and the ‘pot-smoking joy seeker‘ ideals associated with figures like Bob Marley tend to be more of a figment of the American cultural imagination than a realistic depiction of the country.
It’s possible that Kamala is invoking her Jamaican ancestry to rationalize her support for marijuana legalization simply for political convenience. As California Attorney General, she oversaw enforcement of drug laws often punitively applied to everyday people without elite political- or Jamaican- connections.
CAUGHT ON TAPE: Four Georgia Poll Workers Appear to Pull Out and Count Suitcases of Ballots Hidden Under Table AFTER Sending Poll Watchers Home
Stunning footage from the Peach State.
Shocking footage from Thursday’s Georgia Senate Hearing on Election Integrity appears to show poll workers pulling out and counting suitcases of ballots hidden under a table after everyone else had been sent home for the night.
The footage was caught on security camera at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. Poll workers cleared the room around 10:30pm, with Republican poll watchers and a Fox News crew being the last to leave. Those who left were under the impression that counting was finished for the night and that they could return at 8:30am the next day, according to sworn affidavits.
Four poll workers, however, stayed behind. At 11:00pm, after a half-hour of sitting and biding time, they can be seen pulling out four suitcases containing uncounted ballots from underneath a table. The table in question was placed there at 8:22am on Election Day by a woman wearing her blonde hair in braids—the same woman who told everyone to leave at 10:30pm.

Two witnesses actually found out from the press a couple hours later that the four poll workers had not left and were still counting. They returned to State Farm Arena between 1:30 and 1:45am, though the poll workers had completed counting and scanning those hidden ballots around 1:00am.
Interestingly enough, State Farm Arena was also the place where the false flag “burst pipe” occurred.
