The New York Times says Joe Biden’s running mate is a “pragmatic moderate” [Kamala Harris Is Biden’s Choice for Vice President, by Alexander Burns and Katie Glueck, August 11, 2020]. Don’t believe it. Kamala Harris might be a tad “moderate” on economics, but on everything else she’s an anti-white identity-politics Cultural Marxist totalitarian. She backs Open Borders, forced busing, reparations for slavery, government-enforced censorship, and radical criminal justice “reform.” Given Biden’s visibly declining health, it’s very possible that Harris will run the White House, and the country, sooner rather than later. That should terrify the Historic American Nation. But the Harris pick should help Donald Trump—if he doesn’t blow the immigration issue and keep calling her a “tough cop.”
The daughter of immigrants, a Jamaican father and an Indian mother, Harris married well after benefitting from a decidedly unfeminist relationship with the famously flamboyant former black Speaker of California’s House, Willie Brown. Her husband is a wealthy Jewish entertainment lawyer. She is a member in good standing of the one percent [Kamala Harris and Douglas Emhoff's love story: A combined net worth of $6M and ‘Momala’ to two children, by Chaitra Krishnamurthy, Meaww.com, August 11, 2020]. She was born in California but spent her high school years in Canada, and there is a real legal question whether she is a “natural-born” citizen, depending on the exact immigration status of her parents at the time of her birth. But Leftists and Cuckservatism, Inc. love her. She shows the promise, they gush, of this “land of immigrants” [Kamala Harris’s family story is the real portrait of American greatness, by Matt Yglesias, Vox, August 13. 2020].
You know, whatever else you think of Kamala Harris, it’s pretty amazing and awesome that immigrants can come to the U.S., meet, marry, have a child, and their daughter can grow up to be DA, state attorney general, U.S. Senator, and on a presidential ticket. pic.twitter.com/cTRW8c0tyf— Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) August 11, 2020
That's from NRO's Jim Geraghty, who should know better.
None of them seem to get the oddity of celebrating foreigners radically transforming this country for the worse.
Harris demonstrated her Leftist immigration bona fides in her failed presidential campaign. Unlike Biden—at least in his public statements—she supports the decriminalization of illegal immigration, which would make illegal border crossings the equivalent to a speeding ticket [Criminal penalties for border crossers: Where 2020 Democrats stand—Washington Post] She wants a pathway to citizenship for all illegal aliens, and vows to legalize via Executive Order illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as minors (“DREAMers”). She would also block the deportation of legal foreign residents by Executive Order. Harris, her website claimed, would “protect over 6 million immigrants from deportation.” She wants to award government healthcare to all illegals. CITE And having compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to the Ku Klux Klan, she at least once has appeared to back scrapping the agency. [Flashback: Kamala Harris compared ICE to KKK in Senate hearing, by Adam Shaw, Fox News, August 12, 2020].
Harris is also the lead Democratic sponsor of the notorious Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, which would eliminate country caps on visas and allow Indians (like her mother) to dominate our immigration system. If passed, the bill would give more than 90 percent of employment-based visas to Indians through the next decade. Harris also sponsored the NO BAN Act, which would prohibit the president from limiting legal immigration through executive power.
As Numbers USA noted on her selection:
Joe Biden has made two groups very happy — Wall St. and Silicon Valley.
If her voting record on immigration is any indication, Sen. Harris will aggressively advocate for the Biden-Sanders “Unity Plan” — a list of policy recommendations that would increase legal immigration while all but eliminating immigration enforcement. That's good news for Big Business and bad news for American workers and their wages.

Despite her much-touted reputation as a “top cop” who doled out heavy sentences for minor crimes, Harris fervidly backs the Marxist Black Lives Matter and wants to pass sweeping “criminal justice reforms.” In her first speech as Biden’s running mate, she called the BLM terrorists who are burning cities, looting stores, and toppling statues a “coalition of conscience.” She believes the government should root out the phantom menace of “systemic racism.” She introduced a Senate resolution in July that declares racism a “public health crisis”—the first step, of course, to suppressing speech declared “racist.” She also introduced a bill that requires “anti-racism training” as a core component of America’s coronavirus response.
White ignorance of alleged police racism, she told the New York Times in June, makes them sound like “colonist[s],” the radical Left’s favorite new anti-white slur [Kamala Harris Is Done Explaining Racism, by Lisa Lerer, June 10, 2020]. Harris supports federally mandated busing and other efforts to impose “diversity” in education [Democratic candidates’ school integration plans, explained, by Matt Yglesias, Vox, July 3, 2019].
Her criminal justice reform plan features these bright ideas:
Her race hustling and light-on-crime policies earned her the support of George Floyd attorney Benjamin Crump, the black race pimp who just happens to show up whenever a black thug gets himself killed by a cop. Crump wrote in an op-ed endorsing her for VP that
Harris has been unraveling broken systems and confronting injustice since long before most people knew her name. And as someone who spends nearly every waking hour fighting these very systems—believe me when I say we need more fierce allies in positions to drive change from the inside,
[I'm ready to call our sister in the movement for justice Madam Vice President Kamala Harris, by Benjamin Crump, CNN, August 1, 2020]
Given the vengeful nature of America’s emerging Totalitarian Left, Harris would certainly marshal the federal leviathan to harass and probably even jail Trump, his supporters, and law-abiding gun owners. She has already promised to prosecute Trump after he left office [One Tough Question For DOJ If Biden Is Elected: Whether To Prosecute Trump, by Carrie Johnson, NPR, August 13, 2020].
Needless to say, Harris is a gun-grabber from Central Casting. The National Rifle Association would have to invent her if she had not invented herself. She backs gun confiscation, duplicitously called “gun buybacks,” that would authorize cops to raid the homes of reluctant gun owners to seize their arsenals [Kamala Harris Brings Gun Confiscation Support to Dem Presidential Ticket, by Stephen Gutowski, Washington Free Beacon, August 12, 2020]. And as with most of her plans, she would sign Executive Orders to do so.
Harris’ proposed “Red Flag law” would empower Leftist kritarchs to seize guns from designated “public threats”—meaning “white nationalists” and other dissidents who could be labeled domestic terrorists [White nationalists could have firearms taken under red flag law proposed by Kamala Harris, by Aamer Madhani, USA Today, August 14, 2019]. And note that, because many Leftists consider Trump supporters, immigration patriots and anyone else BLM hates to be “white nationalists,” this means most white Americans are potential targets.
Particularly ominous for VDARE.com and its readers: Harris really believes that Big Tech should censor more political speech. She regularly grills tech executives in Senate hearings about why they don’t censor more [Why Does Facebook Always Need a Shove to Deal With Hate Speech?, by April Glaser, Slate, September 5, 2018]. She even demanded that Twitter ban Trump [Kamala Harris asks Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to consider suspending Trump’s account, by Lauren Feiner, CNBC, October 2, 2019].
In other words, a Vice President or President Harris means you better shut up—and VDARE.com would certainly be shut up.
That’s why Biden’s creeping dementia is so terrifying a prospect, and one that should stir the lugubrious Trump campaign into action.
Conservatives have a clear message to deliver to the American people: A Biden-Harris administration would turn our nation into a Totalitarian hellhole. Conservatives couldn’t speak freely or own guns while illegal immigrants obtain citizenship and criminals rampage with impunity.
Trump himself seems to get it. He tweeted a video exposing her radical left record as soon as Biden announced her.

However, Trump also shared another stupid video calling Biden the real racist.

Incredibly, many top conservatives and Trump surrogates prefer attacking Harris as a “cop” who locked up too many black men. The Federalist is even selling shirts that declare “Kamala Is A Cop.” Trying to make a foolish distinction, some on the Trump campaign, such as adviser Katrina Pierson, want to claim Harris went after the wrong criminals:
[Harris] was going after the wrong people. When you’re not going after gang members, but you're going after citizens, for example, black men and marijuana — something that she herself admitted to doing. It's really a double standard she's trying to keep moving forward.

It makes zero sense for the Trump campaign to warn that Biden’s America will look like lawless Portland, while whining that Harris was too tough on criminals. Mocking her as a “cop” when Americans should back the blue against BLM and Antifa is even more stupid. Trump-Pence is supposed to be the Law and Order ticket, not Biden-Harris.
The good news: Harris offers Trump the chance to scare the living daylights out of Americans in a way that attacking the affable if dopey Grandpa Biden doesn’t.
Sleepy, tongue-tied Joe simply doesn’t come off as an anti-white Cultural Marxist. But he picked one for a running mate.
Trump just needs to say so … again, and again, and again.
