Democrat Biden-Harris Ticket Sinks America Into New Age of Political Opportunism
Reactionary praise and criticism of Democrat candidate Joe Biden selecting California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate have largely missed the most troubling aspect of this alignment.
Neither candidate has a shred of integrity and both are more than willing to rehabilitate establishment politics and the Washington, D.C., swamp to gain power and personal wealth. The Biden-Harris ticket represents an unholy alliance of like-minded political opportunists with an established record of doing the unthinkable to get what they want. Both liberal extremists and conservative Americans should be deathly afraid of returning to the politics of the past that crushed opportunity for working families.
“We are in the midst of the largest protest movement in American history, the subject of which is excessive policing, and the Democratic Party chose a “top cop” and the author of the Joe Biden Crime Bill,” Bernie Sanders’ former press secretary recently tweeted. “The contempt for the base is, wow.”
Consider, for a moment, that Biden stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Democrat racists and voted to continue the practices of segregation while a U.S. Senator. In the cancel culture age of violent protests and tearing down statues, Democrats and their friends in establishment media conveniently avoid these topics.
But when Senator Harris bludgeoned Biden in the primary debates over his well-documented bigotry, it was the California senator who found herself erased from contention. Despite Senator Harris’ popularity among celebrities and liberal Democrats, powerful establishment interests were at stake. That’s largely because Biden has proven to be an ally to corporations that outsource American jobs and bring in cheap foreign labor to undercut working families that help swell corporate profits. Biden proved his worth as an advocate for outsourcing manufacturing plants to China, as long as his family’s pockets were lined. They were. Biden is merely a political opportunist willing to steamroll everyday Americans to secure power and get rich.
The primary dustup would have seemed to eliminate Sen. Harris from V.P. contention. After all, she was the only candidate bold enough to call the Obama-era flunky out on his anti-Black legislative record. But the pair have more in common than many realize.
Sen. Harris broke into politics by leveraging an illicit relationship with former San Francisco Mayor Wille Brown, who reportedly set her up on high-paying boards. It was Brown, a man 30 years her senior, who admitted to leveraging his insider political power to get her money and power.
“Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco,” Brown reportedly confessed.
During her time as a San Francisco and later state attorney general in California, her policies evolved to mirror the political powers that be at any given time. Her policies included giving taxpayer advantages to illegal immigrants with criminal records in her “Back on Track” program. Only after one of the illegal immigrants robbed a woman and committed vehicular assault did the program fall apart.
Although such policies were detrimental to everyday Americans, they helped Harris ingratiate herself into the favor of wealthy liberals. Just as she brokered her affair with then-married Brown into political office, she’s been willing to carry water for establishment Democrats to secure higher office.
So-called experts at the Wall Street Journal, for example, point out that Biden and Harris differ on trade, healthcare, guaranteed income, taxation, immigration, economics, and this list goes on. What they agree on, however, is a willingness to say and do anything that increases their position. Biden got to this point voting to damage the lives of African-Americans. Harris got here supporting illegal criminals, placating the far left, and enticing an old man.
