Confusion Will Reign by Tom Reynolds, SCOPE President
Joe Biden selected Kamala Harris as his running mate. Has anyone noticed that the left-wing media was portraying her as an extreme leftist when running for President. But now, when running for Vice President, she is being portrayed by the same left-wing media as a moderate? The NY Times now describes her as a “Pragmatic moderate”. (If she’s a moderate then Joe Stalin was simply an agrarian reformer.)
Voters may be very confused this year.
If you are a Democrat and you believe that Joe Biden will serve out his term: do you vote for a guy who won the nomination because he was viewed as the most moderate candidate on the Democrat debate stage but who now says he will be the most progressive president in history?
If you are a Democrat and believe Joe Biden will not serve out four years: do you, in essence, vote for a radical left California progressive who lost the Democrat presidential nomination with about 2% of the vote because she was too radical, but is now being portrayed as moderate?
Of course, Evangelicals face a problem with Donald Trump. His tweeting drives them crazy. But are his policies (pro-life, pro 1st Amendment) more important to them than his behavior?
No one should be more confused than Jews, an historically solidly Democratic group. Do they continue their Democrat history and vote for Biden, who was the VP under Barack Obama, a notoriously anti-Israel President? Or do they vote for a Republican President that has been unapologetically pro-Israel and even moved our embassy to Jerusalem?
And prepare yourself for sexual jokes, cartoons and innuendo.
All the accusations against Trump will be reborn and every sexual statement he ever made will be played again and again on CNN. He will even be, again, accused of violating election laws in 2016 even though that never had any substance.
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown was known for his “flamboyant” lifestyle and his support of “People’s Temple” leader Jim Jones (of drinking the Kool Aid fame). Brown dated Harris when he was 60 and she was 25. He has admitted that he may have "influenced" her early career by appointing her to boards.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964, banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. If Joe Biden were an employer, he would have violated the law by insisting the VP be a black woman. But then again, does Harris qualify as black? Her mother is from India and her father from Jamaica. (But on the positive side, she can claim more “Indian” blood than Elizabeth Warren!)
Harris has a white husband who is a successful lawyer. Does that make him a white supremacist and will Black Lives Matter then disavow her?
Does Harris owe or will she receive reparations since her father has confessed that their ancestor was a slave holder in Jamaica?
Stay tuned. It’s going to be a ride.
