Speaking at Glamour’s 2018 Women of the Year Awards Monday night, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), widely regarded as one of the frontrunners for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, tried to make it look as though she was above partisanship and cooed that all she was interested in was unity among Americans and seeking the truth. Finding a new mantra, Harris pontificated that America was in an “inflection moment” before she gushed about her devotion to the truth. Harris said:
This is an inflection moment, I believe, in the history of our country. This is a moment where there are powerful voices trying to sow hate and division among us. And if we’re going to deal with where we are at this inflection moment, we must speak all these truths, and one of the most significant and important truths right now is also that the vast majority of us have so much more in common than what separates us and let’s speak and own that truth, in particular, in the face of those who are trying to have us point fingers at each other and divide us. Let’s speak these truths.
And then the final point that I’ll make is this: in this inflection moment in the history of our country, this is a moment, yes, that these truths must be spoken; we need to bring folks together; and, well, let’s also recognize, this moment will pass, at some moment this moment will pass; it will pass, and years from now, people are going to look in our eyes, each one of us, and they will ask us, “Where were you at that inflection moment?” And what we’re all going to be able to say, is we were here together, and we were fighting for the best of who we are.
Harris is portraying herself as a defender of truth and a uniter of Americans. Of course, she doesn’t mean all Americans; unborn babies don’t measure up. As New York Magazine reported in 2016, here’s how pro-abortion she is:
When anti-abortion activists published hidden-camera videos alleging Planned Parenthood officials in California sold fetal tissue, Kamala Harris’s office authorized the search of David Daleiden’s apartment and the seizure of relevant possessions, including his laptop. Her support for Planned Parenthood drew criticism from pro-life organizations, and her official campaign website includes a petition to restore funds to Planned Parenthood.
Yet after the Valentine’s Day shooting in Parkland, Florida in February 2018, Harris stated, “We cannot tolerate a society and live in a country with any level of pride when our babies are being slaughtered.”
Harris complained about “powerful voices trying to sow hate and division among us.” Here’s a tweet from February 2017 in which she wrote that President Trump’s travel ban was hatched in the basement of ISIS:
Harris showed how much she cares about civility when she consistently interrupted then-Secretary of Homeland Security General John Kelly during hearings in June 2017, prompting an exasperated Kelly to snap, “Could you at least let me finish once, before you interrupt me?”
As far as trying to appear above the fray, Harris even dissed the Constitution during the hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Knowing Kavanaugh carries around a copy of the Constitution, Harris snapped:
I’m going to ask you about unenumerated rights. So, you gave a speech praising former Justice Rehnquist dissent in Rhodes, there’s been much discussion about that, and you wrote, celebrating his success, that “success in stemming the free-wheeling tide creation of unenumerated rights,” that is what you said in celebration of Justice Rehnquist. So “unenumerated rights” is a phrase that lawyers use, but I want to make clear what we’re talking about: it means rights that are protected by the Constitution even if they’re not specifically mentioned in the Constitution.
Then, pointing at Kavanaugh’s table, she patronized, “So they’re not in that book that you carry.”
Speaking of truth, Harris pushed a deceptively-edited video of Kavanaugh in an attempt to make it look as if Kavanaugh believed all birth control equates to “abortion-inducing drugs.”
