As my colleague Brandon Morse, Mike Miller and I have shown you, the CNN story on Vice President Kamala Harris produced typical responses.
The hue and cry of “racism” and “misogyny” was heard from The View’s other woman-of-color Sunny Hostin, to white author Don Winslow.
Ironically, this article was co-authored with two other people. Edward Isaac DeVore (one) is his co-author. He is, in fact, white and masculine. He also might be a racist, because in his latest book, he said Obama was a “parasite” for the Democrat Party.
Jasmine Wright is the other co-author. Black woman.
This argument was accepted as a fact.

Then you have an anonymous staffer claiming “white male energy,” in how the Biden administration defended the useless Howdy Doody Pete Buttigieg and his incompetent failings, versus how they defend Harris and hers.

“White spaces?” I feel the same about that expression as I do about “dog whistles,” and Michael Eric Dyson’s “White Ideas.”
Miss me on that….
Below are more details from anonymous Harris staffers about the racism and misogyny of CNN journalists:
“Many in the vice president’s circle fume that she’s not being adequately prepared or positioned, and instead is being sidelined.”
Why is it the White House’s job to “prepare and position” her? Harris is only a few steps away from the presidency so it would seem that these would provide Harris with an opportunity to prove her presidential skills. Harris ran for the position. Before she accepted the role as Biden’s VP. Would she expect another person to prepare or position her if she were in fact a candidate for the presidency?
If that is the case, it’s rather scary. Harris prefers to whine, dodge or deflect responsibility, regardless of her position as Vice President.
“Few of the insiders who spoke with CNN think she’s being well-prepared for whichever role it will be. Harris is struggling with a rocky relationship with some parts of the White House, while long-time supporters feel abandoned and see no coherent public sense of what she’s done or been trying to do as vice president. Being the first woman, and first woman of color, in national elected office is historic but has also come with outsized scrutiny and no forgiveness for even small errors, as she’ll often point out.”
Despite the way the Democrat Party would like to see these roles treated, the president and vice-president of the United States do not have coronations. In the larger picture, Kamala Harris’ Vice Presidency is the embodiment of all Equity, Diversity and Inclusion policies that this administration promotes and presses down on Americans.
Harris is the epitome of this mix of symbolism with no substance, multiracial celebration and racial justice. Since the days of her relationship with California Assembly Speaker and former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, to now, Harris has had roles handed to her that were taken from more qualified, more prepared, and probably more competent person, all because she needed credentials and was touted as a “symbol” for racial progress. Whether it was hers or someone else’s progress didn’t really matter.
The legacy media spent the entire 2020 campaign season not asking her hard questions, but touting her clothing, her shoes, her ethnicities, and letting her cackle her way out of anything she didn’t know. You see, it didn’t matter whether she was competent or not; the sheer power of being the first female Black-Indian-Asian president or vice president was going to outshine any policy, obstacle, and leadership requirement! You better recognize!
You would expect the Biden administration to be pleased about this. It’s America seeing the future. Every industry, every school board and your local McDonalds are run by Kamala Harris-types. Are you thinking that the supply-chain or workforce problem are now bad? Imagine when it’s not just a government representative that whines and complains about how unfair the world is treating them because they get nothing done, but when it’s your Starbucks barista? America’s Biden Harris incompetency is now in its second year. Two more are on the horizon.
If you play dumb games, then you will win stupid prizes. This is what the Democrats want: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
Live it. Learn it. Love it.
