You may not know Kamala Harris is in the running to become the next VP of the United States if you rely on media of a Caucasian Persuasion, but never fear, Dear Hearts, I am as Blackkety Black as they come. I will give you many facts. Why is there a media Black-out on Kamala Harris? Because, the media wants Liz Warren. It was quite apparent to anyone who actually gave a shit that there was quite a bit of erasure of Kamala Harris in the media when she was running for President, especially when it came to the excellent work she had done over the years. When Laura Bazelon published her stupid op-ed last year, she completely misrepresented most of the complaints she had about Kamala, to the point where it now seems like it was personal. And, let me keep it real, everyone who used that article as source material, knowing it was opinion, yet presented that bullshit as fact, is going to hell. Just kidding, we don’t want your kind in our nice warm hell.
Time and time again, as I reread it recently, I noticed that her op-ed interpreted every move or non-move Harris made in a comically villainous manner. Every single inmate highlighted was “obviously” innocent, rulings made by judges in Harris’ favor were only made because Harris didn’t respect the secret silent signal rules that every lawyer secretly follows. Like that case where a death row inmate, who had several DNA tests and a blood test done prior that Bazelon glossed over, could surely be killed by State Murder (that is not going on because California suspended the Death Penalty), yet would be PROVEN innocent if they did a new new new DNA test that was super expensive, and who knows? Maybe he would. Or maybe he’s saying he was framed by the cops? The case is getting more attention, as we wait on the latest set of results. We know all of this; in a career spanning nearly 30 years, Bazelon managed to highlight about 20 or so times Harris either could have decided the other way, wasn’t aware of something, was indecisive, or wasn’t seeing the forest for the trees. In 30 years, this is a very good record. I mean, I make like 10 mistakes per day, so, if you went back a day, you can find as many mistakes in some work I got into in these two days, as Bazelon found in Harris’ whole career. Yes, my mistakes are smaller; nobody is dumb enough to trust me with any type of power.
One thing I keep wondering is: why it is that nobody knows anything GOOD about Kamala Harris, something besides the hyped up and dramatized acts of the Kamala caricature that has been manufactured by the leftist media? I have come to a conclusion; nobody reads books. Kamala Harris tends to read books, so it seems to me, she expects that others read books too. I won’t list off her own books, but suffice to say if you want to know more about her, you might want to start with the memoir she wrote right before she began her run for president.
I created a list of facts about, and accomplishments of Kamala Harris, and I will compile another set of beautiful facts for you whenever I get around to it.
