Comrade Kamala

Democratic Presidential hopeful Joe Biden took an extreme left turn by picking Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his vice presidential running mate. Stating the obvious and underscoring a double meaning with his words, the immediate past president said, “By choosing Senator Kamala Harris as America’s next vice president [Biden] has underscored his own judgment and character. Reality shows us that these attributes are not optional in a president.” And the media, exemplified by Politico, is all hyped up that, Harris would be “the first woman, the first Asian American, and the first Black vice president if elected.” Not much is being said about qualifications except that she is of Indian and Jamaican descent.

Her father, Donald Harris, engineered a student-led protest at Stanford in January 1974 demanding a formal commitment to establishing a field of study in “radical political economics,” according to The Stanford Daily Archives. The demands came after the university refused to permanently hire a visiting Marxian economist—that economics professor was Donald Harris. A November 3, 1976 editorial in The Stanford Daily concluded, “Harris was described as too charismatic, a pied piper leading students astray from neo-classical economics.” Eventually, Stanford kept Harris on as a professor and, according to the Mercury News, he developed a program teaching alternative economic analysis, including Marxism.

On a June 19 interview with the Intelligencer, Kamala Harris dodged questions about defunding the police, claiming she didn’t really know what Minneapolis was doing. She admitted that police are necessary to do investigations on child sexual assault cases, homicide and rape cases. But then she said, “We need to reimagine how we achieve public safety, we need to critically examine whether our distribution of resources reflects our priorities, based on what we know is the smart way to achieve public safety and healthy communities.” She suggested taking money from the police departments and redistributing it to public schools, treating mental health, and affordable housing.

While campaigning for president in November 2019, The Hill reported Harris as saying, “I’m not trying to upend and blow up systems. I’m not trying to start a revolution. I am not a socialist,” but she added that “capitalism assumes that everyone is starting out on the same base and then people will compete and the best will rise. The majority of people aren’t starting out on the same base, and we’ve got to lift people up and in particular working people.” In early 2019, Harris became one of the first senators to support the radically socialist Green New Deal proposed by Democratic Socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Harris also supported socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) bill that would outlaw private health insurance. She has also said she would use Executive Orders to bypass Congress to achieve gun control.

Maybe Harris tells you that she is not a socialist, but her pedigree and her actions say different. Her definition of capitalism is taken from the Marxist playbook. She supports an extremist legislation that essentially requires ripping apart the free market system, while saying she is not trying to upend or blow up systems or start a revolution. As Attorney General for California, Harris urged the Supreme Court to force Hobby Lobby to pay for abortifacients for employees. Her argument was that if you are owners of a corporation, religious beliefs must be put aside. As a senator, she has a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood. As is said in Ephesians 5:6, “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” The consequences of this coming election are immense.
