(Liberty Bell) – It’s no secret that Democrats are, for the most part, inconsistent in the application of their beliefs which leads to a severe case of hypocrisy. Everyone can see that sort of behavior plain as day all the time from the left. It’s just that the left themselves do not care whether or not they actually practice what they preach.
This couldn’t be more evident than in the case of Sen. Kamala Harris, who at one time expressed that she believed the women who made claims of sexual assault against former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, but has now joined his presidential campaign as his running mate.
Gee, what happened to “believe all women,” or whatever the catch phrase was? Or was it #MeToo?
Either way, Carrie Severino, president of the Judicial Crisis Network took Harris to task for this hypocrisy on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM.
Severino recalled Harris’s statements about Biden’s accusers after Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court while Harris was still officially campaigning for the presidency.
“Kamala Harris was the ring leader in the anti-Kavanaugh circus,” remarked Severino. Harris’s presidential campaign paid at least $134,500 for over 3,600 political ads on Facebook related to the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
Severino contrasted Harris’s differing responses to accusations of sexual abuse against Biden and Kavanaugh.
Severino added, “Suddenly Joe Biden is accused to something very similar, and what’s so fascinating is [Harris’s] political about-face when [Biden] was first accused of inappropriate touching by Tara Reade, as well as like a dozen other women who talked about how he touched them inappropriately.”
Severino continued, “Kamala Harris said, ‘Oh, I believe them,’ and she thought that needed some more investigation. That was back when she was running against Joe Biden for president. Then, when Tara Reade came out with even more specific and devastating allegations of actual rape — effectively — that was when Kamala Harris was looking to be his vice president. She was one of the top contenders even back in April when Tara Reade came out with more information.”
Severino went on, “At that point, did [Harris] say, ‘I believe her?’ Did she say, ‘We don’t have enough, yet, but we need to at least investigate this?’ Oh no. She said, ‘She has the right to tell her story, but I believe Joe Biden, jumping to the opposite conclusion.”
If you believe the claim made by a woman against a man concerning sexual assault, how can you, in good conscience, join that man’s presidential campaign and act as if that’s morally acceptable? Especially when you came out against that individual during your own political campaign? Something doesn’t smell right with that.
At the end of the day, it comes down to the fact that Kamala Harris is a total political opportunist. She says whatever she thinks the people want to hear, that will earn her the most favor with voters in the moment. She constantly flip-flops on issues, making her a classic people pleaser.
This is no doubt why the Democratic Party is thrilled with her as Biden’s choice for vice president. If they should win in November, she would be just as easy to control and manipulate as Biden.
Severino concluded, “[Harris] really was one of the first of a whole train of Democratic women who absolutely abandoned some of those positions, [and] who were willing to basically say, ‘I’ll believe anyone who’s politically is convenient for me, whether that’s [Christine] Blasey-Ford on one side or whether that’s Joe Biden on the other.”
Look, all we are asking is that the left be consistent in the application of their principles and beliefs. We all know these principles are bogus and don’t work. They do too. That’s why they don’t want to be consistent. They want their cake and to be able to eat it too.
Here’s to hoping Trump gets another term and we don’t have to deal with this mess of a ticket in the White House.
