Most Americans, even and indeed perhaps especially those who voted for the Biden-Harris ticket have scant knowledge of who Kamala Harris is, and for Democrats, that was a good thing.
She was chosen as Biden’s running mate purely because he had to pick a woman and one “of color,” and if Oprah wasn’t available, the field was far from stellar. Those who did know much about Harris, the Democrats who paid attention to her cringe-worthy debate performances and who watched her various giggling, pandering interviews, were sufficiently unimpressed to withhold their votes, even when the alternatives were as weak, or weaker, than the cognitively fading, accused sexual harasser former Vice President, and even while the news media was openly cheer-leading for her.
Inspired by the holidays, Harris gave one of the few glimpses we have had since her nomination of just how cynical and untrustworthy she is. She released a video to Kwanzaa celebrants, although the thing began “Happy holidays everyone!” In other words, “Hi everybody, but the people I’m really interested in are blacks, my pander targets for today.” Unlike Christmas, which is celebrated by all races world-wide, Kwanzaa is only celebrated in the U.S., being a fake holiday, and only by a minority of African Americans. Here was what she said,
Happy holidays, everyone. I wanted to take a moment to send my warmest wishes to everyone celebrating Kwanzaa. Like so many other holidays, we will be celebrating Kwanzaa a little bit differently this season in our home. We’ll be doing it over Zoom.
You know, my sister and I, we grew up celebrating Kwanzaa. Every year our family would – and our extended family, we would gather around, across multiple generations, and we’d tell stories. The kids would sit on the carpet and the elders would sit on chairs, and we would light the candles, and of course afterwards have a beautiful meal. And, of course, there was always the discussion of the seven principles. And my favorite, I have to tell you, was always the one about self-determination, kujichagulia.
And, you know, essentially it’s about be and do. Be the person you want to be and do the things you want to do and do the things that need to be done. It’s about not letting anyone write our future for us, but instead going out and writing it for ourselves. And that principle motivates me today, as we seek to confront the challenges facing our country and to build a brighter future for all Americans. So, to everyone who is celebrating, Happy Kwanzaa from our family to yours.
This appears to be the Kamala Harris equivalent of Bill Clinton’s risible claim that he remembered black church burnings in his neighborhood when he was a child. Harris was born in 1964, two years before Kwanzaa was invented by an anti-white black nationalist. It didn’t become widely known or celebrated until the 80s, so the chances that Harris “grew up celebrating Kwanzaa,” are slim, especially since Harris’s father (the source of her claim to being black) divorced her mother (from India) in 1971. From age seven on, Harris was living with a mother who had no reason to celebrate a fake African holiday, and five years later, she moved with her mother to Canada, where nobody celebrates Kwanzaa, especially Indian-Americans.
I would not be surprised to learn that Harris has never celebrated Kwanzaa when there weren’t cameras around.
But that’s Kamala Harris, our Vice-President! She’ll say whatever she calculates will suck up to the right group, no matter how unbelievable what she says is, insulting the intelligence of that group in the process. If anyone calls her bluff, she’ll say they are racists.
Some of us already know this about Harris, of course, because we were paying attention.
