Junior United States Senator from California and progressive heroine Kamala Harris wrote the following tweet on Tuesday:
Here’s the truth: infrastructure spending isn’t a transportation issue for most Americans — it’s a human rights issue.
— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) January 25, 2017
By Harris’s logic, spending American tax dollars on infrastructure furthers the cause of human rights just as much as our rights to keep and bear arms, free speech and press, a trial by jury, or not being subjected to unwarranted searches and seizures. Here’s the problem: Nothing in the United States Constitution suggests that transportation is a right given to us by our Creator, nor is it explicitly mentioned in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Kamala Harris has been known to promote progressive nonsense prior to her tenure as a US Senator and has doubled down on that path since taking office. During the Women’s March last Saturday, Harris gave a speech suggesting that climate change is a women’s issue, further peddling the increasingly nonsensical tenets of intersectional feminism. In addition, she asked now-CIA Director Mike Pompeo about gay rights and climate change during his confirmation hearings instead of issues surrounding national security like Islamic State or Russian hacks.
In response to Harris’s absurd tweet, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro said the following:
Please name the Americans starving at night because of potholes. https://t.co/T1kMKG1Qt1

When asked for comment about how California managed to elect Harris, Shapiro responded, “Forget it. It’s California.”
