Rush Nails It: Biden-Harris Are All Identity Politics, No Accomplishments
BRETT: Well, somebody who’s had some challenges when it comes to policy accomplishments is Kamala Harris. What are we, 59 days since she was designated the point person on the border? She’s still not made it down to the border. She still hasn’t gone down and experienced all that is the border, and now there is a piece running, Anita Kumar posted this just in these last few days.“How Kamala Harris Became a Victim of the Barriers She Broke.” So she’s a victim, as the vice president of the United States, she’s “a victim of the barriers that she broke.” Kumar notes in this piece, “Harris carried many firsts with her into the vice presidency. The daughter of an Indian mother and a Black Jamaican father, she is the first woman, Black person, Asian American, Indian American and biracial woman to serve as vice president.
“Those firsts have come with their unique set of pressures, primarily for her to embrace her history-making role. And after nearly four months in office, Harris faces criticism that she hasn’t struck the right balance, that she’s focused more often on being the United States’ first Black vice president than the first Asian American one.”
I mean, those are issues that she can certainly navigate and will decide how she wants to navigate those. But what about the job first and foremost out of that, which is the vice presidency of the United States? I just… I would think you would want to be working on the issues at the border and the number of challenges out there. We’re not really seeing a whole lot to be shown as a result of that, right? Well, Rush had thoughts on Kamala Harris. It went like this.
RUSH: Dinesh D’Souza had been looking into Kamala Harris, and he had tweet. “The privilege Kamala Harris has enjoyed throughout her life was built on the backs of 200 black slaves, forced to work on 5 plantations by her ancestor Hamilton Brown.
“I’ve yet to hear any sympathy from the Left for these black lives, which evidently don’t matter at all.” Apparently… Look, this is not “apparently.” We’ve all known it. Those of us who have studied Kamala Harris, those of you who looked into her background, we know she’s not African. She doesn’t have “slave blood.” She not down for the struggle. She not. None of that. She doesn’t have any attachment, like Obama didn’t.
Obama didn’t have any direct attachment to the struggle. He didn’t have any direct attachment to Selma, even though he went there, tried to make it look like he did. She doesn’t either. In fact, her family was wealthy in Jamaica, and they owned slaves. And it’s not just Dinesh D’Souza. Jamelle Bouie in the New York Times finally admits Kamala Harris might be descended from a slave owner. Now, Jamelle Bouie is a male.
He does not give his readers the slightest indication of how large a slave owner Hamilton Brown was, but Dinesh D’Souza has done the investigating and found out. And he’s published the names, 200-plus slaves owned by Kamala Harris’ ancestor, Hamilton Brown in Jamaica, 1817. Hamilton Brown and his plantation, one of the largest planters in Jamaica, Brown now has a town named after him. It’s called Brown’s Town in Jamaica.
Got another tweet here from Dinesh D’Souza 25 minutes ago. He said: The left has been pulling down statues of George Washington, the founder of the country, because he owned slaves. They’ve been pulling down statues of Thomas Jefferson because he owned slaves. They’ve been pulling down statues of Alexander Hamilton because he owned slaves. Now they want to put in the Oval Office, once Biden keels over, a woman who is a direct beneficiary of five slave plantations and more than 200 slaves. That would be Kamala Harris.
Folks, there’s no denying this. Her family were big slave owners. Five slave plantations, 200 slaves. The family wealth was created by virtue of these plantations. So the Democrats are out there ripping down all these founders. They owned slaves. Now they’re gonna put somebody in the Oval Orifice who owned slaves, or whose family did.
And here. Just to show you that somebody’s figured out maybe too late that they’ve got a problem here with Kamala Harris and the African-American vote. Let’s go to CNN. This is when they were talking about this. I told you they were having a little panel discussion over, “Uh-oh. Oh, no. What do we do now? Kamala Harris, black voters expressing some problems.” So let’s go back, August 5th of 2020. This is the National Association of Black Journalists and Hispanic Journalists virtual convention.
BIDEN: Yes. And, by the way, what you all know but most people don’t know, unlike the African-American community with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.
RUSH: Yeah, yeah, yeah. And the African-Americans, they’re monolithic. There’s no differences. Hispanics, you people, you’re really diverse. But blacks, no way, dude. No way. I guess James Clyburn was cringing then. And let’s go to back to May 22nd when Plugs appeared with my old buddy Charlemagne the God on his Breakfast Club show.
RUSH: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” I have a theory on Kamala Harris. I tell you, nobody jams more into a program than this one. I think if you look at her record, why is she on the ticket? You know, I’ve been asking myself. She didn’t get any votes. Why is she on the ticket?
If you look at her record as DA and attorney general California, San Francisco, she punished her political opponents. She rewarded political supporters. She helped enshrine the one-party permanency in in California. And as president she’d do the same thing, which at the national level means moving hard left, disempowering states and businesses and individuals and centralizing power in D.C. where they intend to control decision-making for generations.
BRETT: The thing that incredible about that, though, is it’s readily apparent that she’s not functioning as that sort of enforcer four months, five months into the vice presidency of the United States. I mean, she’s been rewarded for helping to try to take the country hard left. But it’s a bad look, if you’re trying to avoid having anything to do with the border when you’ve been tasked with it. That is a major challenge that she kind of walked away from. End of Transcript,
