Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been attempting to rehabilitate her record as a progressive while running for the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020, but her tough-on-crime inclinations can still be seen in her rhetoric.
Harris told the NAACP Convention’s presidential candidate forum on Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s intervention into the case of A$AP Rocky, who was recently locked up in Sweden on assault charges, is an abuse of his presidential authority.
“As president, how would you handle the A$AP Rocky case in Sweden?” moderator April Ryan asked Harris. “How will you use your power to make sure misuse of power doesn’t happen in cases like this, and that this case would stay in the State Department and not go to the White House?”
“There’s no question that this White House is, has been playing politics with his role of leadership, and it has to end. This president, I just want to back up for a second, so you know I have fought predators,” Harris responded before launching into a series of attacks against Trump.
“So you’re saying this is another piece on the rap sheet of Donald Trump, this misuse of power in the A$AP Rocky case?” Ryan asked in a follow-up question to Harris.
“Yes,” Harris replied.
Later on, Harris attempted to recite song lyrics from the late James Brown in order to win over the audience and prove her authenticity.
“All right, say it loud,” Ryan said to Harris.
“Yes,” Harris said again, then adding, “And I’m black and I’m proud!”
“Wait say that again, I didn’t hear you. What did you say?” Ryan asked.
“Say it loud, I’m black and I’m proud!” Harris responded.
While Harris may be black and proud, she was once very proud of her record of throwing black people into jail for long periods of time as she made her name as a tough-on-crime prosecutor and attorney general.
“Remember, “non-violent” does not mean “unimportant.” It’s important to fight all crime. Drug crimes in particular exact a terrible toll and rob people young and old of hope,” Harris wrote in “Smart on Crime,” her book that was published in 2009.
“And remember that many of these offenders are small players in the underground business of drug sales and trafficking, and therefore are closely linked with gangs, violence, and gun crimes,” she continued.
“We are sending three times as many offenders to state prison than we were in 2001, three years before I took office,” Harris wrote about her time as San Francisco attorney general. “We also increased conviction rates for drug sellers.”
President Trump passed criminal justice reform in his first term while being committed to helping African-Americans like A$AP Rocky and LiAngelo Ball when they are abused by foreign governments. Trump is helping to undo the damage caused by heavy-handed bureaucrats like Harris, who have fed the prison-industrial complex to fuel their own political ambitions.
Ilhan Omar Says She Believes Biden Committed Sexual Assault, But Will Vote For Him Anyway
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has stated publicly that she believes Tara Reade, a former staffer for presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden who has alleged he sexually assaulted her, but will vote for Biden despite the fact that she thinks he is a predator.
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump,” Omar wrote in a tweet attempting to express solidarity for Reade while shilling for Biden.
“We can’t fend off perceived attacks with attacks on others. This is the most important election cycle of our lifetimes and we aren’t going to have a chance if we don’t spend our energy in mobilizing and building enthusiasm against Trump. That’s the goal we should all be united on,” Omar wrote in a subsequent Twitter post.
She also talked about her stance in favor of voting for a man she believes is a sexual predator during an interview with The Sunday Times.
“There’s a lot of unsavory stuff. It is troubling, I do believe Tara Reade, I believe it’s important for us to give space for women to come forward and share their stories. It takes years and years for sexual assault survivors to come forward. Justice can be delayed but it should never be denied,” Omar said.
“If considerations [over the candidate] were something I had influence over, just candidly here, we’d probably have a different candidate,” she added – making it clear that Biden is not a candidate she finds particularly desirable.
Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) expressed a similar opinion that she would vote for a man she believes committed sexual assault because of her hatred for Trump.
“I reject the false choice that my party and our nominee can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House,” Pressley wrote.
Reade has come forward in recent weeks to accuse Biden of victimizing her in 1993 when he was a Senator and she worked under him:
Tara Reade, a former staffer for Joe Biden while he was serving in the Senate, filed a criminal complaint in Washington D.C. against her former boss on Saturday alleging he sexually assaulted her in 1993.
Reade attests that Biden “assaulted her in a Senate corridor, shoving his hand under her skirt and penetrating her with his fingers.” Business Insider has reported that the “statute of limitations for the alleged assault has passed,” but this troublesome news is not expected to help Biden’s presidential chances.
Reade spoke her truth to writer Katie Halper when she appeared on her podcast last month. Reade claims that she has been trying to get justice for years but her story has mostly fallen on deaf ears due to Biden being protected.
“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing,” Reade said to Halper. “There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then, he went, he went down my skirt and then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers…and um…He was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me.”
“He got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said,” she continued. “And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this.”
Reade’s allegations are yet to be proven by hard evidence, but this situation has certainly exposed the incredible hypocrisy of Democrats when it comes to the #MeToo movement and sexual assault claims.
