Biden’s VP still is confused

Kamala Harris, who is to word salad as Julia Child was to chicken salad, came to Jacksonville this week and said something.

“You’re not alone. You’re not alone. You’re not alone,” was one thing she said to a room full of people who, sure enough, were not alone.

The Democrat vice president was here on a political trip, to criticize a Republican governor who is running for president. If he won, Harris would be out of a job.

Harris and other Democrats, presumably including Mayor Donna Deegan who welcomed Harris warmly, do not like a new Florida law that requires teaching history accurately.

Democrats want to teach children that America is a racist nation and that all people with white skin who are not registered Democrats are racist oppressors of other Americans.

They disagree with the Rev. Martin Luther King who taught that a person should be judged on his character and not his skin color.

“Education is not merely neglected in many of our schools today but is replaced to a great extent by ideological indoctrination,” the great economist Thomas Sowell said.

It is the indoctrination of children in government schools that the new law seeks to counter. Democrats are all in supporting the decades of indoctrination. But parents in Florida and other states are fighting back against racism and grooming in the schools. Democrats, in turn, are opposing and criticizing parents who want to protect their children.

They call it “banning books” when parents seek to keep pornography out of the schools.

One Far Left organization labeled a group of mothers fighting for their children a “hate group” for resisting liberal orthodoxy.

Harris said she opposed slavery – like everyone else in the United States. The point of that tautological comment was unclear.

She appeared to be arguing that people with black skin — who were captured by people with black skin and sold to people of various colors — should have been left in Africa. Had that happened their descendants, if living in the Congo, would be earning $560 a year on average instead of living in a nation where the average income is $71,000.

Black-skinned millionaire boxer Mohammed Ali said, “Thank God, my granddaddy got on that boat.”

As author Dinesh D-Souza said, Ali’s comment “expresses a widely held sentiment. Ali recognizes that for all the horror of slavery, it was the transmission belt that brought Africans into the orbit of Western freedom. The slaves were not better off — the boat Ali refers to brought the slaves through a horrific Middle Passage to a life of painful servitude — yet their descendants today, even if they won’t admit it, are better off. Ali was honest enough to admit it.”

Harris did little on her political foray into Jacksonville to further race relations or political discourse. But we hope Harris enjoyed her brief stay in the Sunshine State and that she is able to find meaningful employment after 2024.

  1. Up until the 1960s the Communist in the USA thought that class would be the best part to have a revolution and get to Paradise on Earth. In the 1970s it was apparent to all that they went nowhere with the class struggle concept. So now in 2023 the neo Marxist use identity politics as the for the vanguard of the new order with the neo communist on top. And then the Frankfort School courthouse said let’s do culture rather than class as well. Bus today is where the neo Marxist want to be in 2023.
