Vice President Kamala Harris responded to a student on Tuesday who claimed that Israel was committing an “ethnic genocide” by telling the student that her “truth” should not be suppressed.

“But I see that over the summer, there have been like protests and demonstrations and astronomical numbers then with Palestine,” the student said. “But then just a few days ago, there were funds allocated to continue backing Israel, which hurts my heart because it’s an ethnic genocide and a displacement of people, the same that happened in America. And I’m sure you’re aware of this.”

“And I bring this up also, because of the issue of how Americans are struggling because of lack of health care, public health care, lack of affordable housing, and all this money ends up going to and funding Israel and backing Saudi Arabia and whatnot,” she claimed. “And I think that the people have spoken very often in what they do need, and I feel like there’s a lack of listening and I just feel like I need to bring this up because it affects my life and people I really care about life’s, and [inaudible].”

“I’m glad you did it. I’m glad you did,” Harris responded. “And again, this is about the fact that your voice, your perspective, your experience, your truth should not be suppressed.”
