Cruz asks if Kamala Harris’s support of Black Lives Matter riots qualifies as ‘incitement’

Vice President Kamala Harris has been fairly quiet throughout Donald Trump’s second impeachment process, so she was likely shocked to hear her name pop up in the contentious proceedings on Friday.

Harris has been dragged into the conversation as to what constitutes “incitement of violence” — a definition Democrats must establish in order to convict Donald Trump. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked impeachment managers on Friday if Harris’s language in support of Black Lives Matter protestors and rioters qualifies as incitement under Democrats’ “proposed standard.”

Cruz explained the reasoning behind his pointed question: “While violent riots were raging, Kamala Harris said on national TV, ‘They’re not gonna let up, and they should not,'” referencing comments Harris made during an interview with late-night host Stephen Colbert last June.

Cruz also reminded viewers that Harris also infamously asked supporters to donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a bail fund created to bail violent rioters — including a number of alleged child molesters and sex criminals — out of jail.

Of course, Harris did not direct anyone to specifically commit violence, but neither did Donald Trump. Democrat impeachment managers spent much of this week arguing that Trump urging supporters to “fight” for what they believe in qualifies as incitement. By that standard, Kamala Harris directly incited violence among Black Lives Matter supporters.

“Using the manager’s proposed standard, is there any coherent way for Donald Trump’s words to be incitement and Kamala Harris’s words not to be incitement?” Cruz asked Democrat impeachment managers.

Impeachment lead Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) was taken aback by the question, responding that he was “not familiar” with Harris’s comments but that it is “absolutely unimaginable that Vice President Harris would ever incite violence or encourage or promote violence. Obviously, it’s completely irrelevant to the proceeding at hand, and I will allow her to defend herself.”

    1. It would have been nice if you had proof read this first. You know the leftists think that we are all a bunch of illiterate hillbillies why I prove it.
      Wo- woe
      We run God out?
      Out government?
      Defend you self?
      Police done their jobs?
      Enslave there people?
      Punctuation, run on sentences fragmented thoughts.
      Otherwise 100%agree
      There’s no doubt that kicking God out was the fatal blow.

    2. Amen And very well said! We have to not forget that there are three things sacred in this life one is Almighty God because when we die we will all stand before him an answer to his 10 Commandments and we will suffer the consequences number two is the atmosphere we all live under and around the weather leave the atmosphere alone rockets disturb the weather patterns causing erratic and disastrous weather number three is the clock most of us punch a clock most of our lives leave-them alone also!

  2. You haven’t watched the view lately, if you want to see a bunch of FUGLY old hags, this is the place to go. They are so busy trying to get a pound of flesh, they don’t understand that they can’t lose any while they are shoving more down their throats. They can’t lose any flesh, cause they can’t flap their jaws fast enough to lose any calories.😁😂😷

  3. Cuomo’s lies:
    The media has nothing to do with legal decisions, and need not be considered when deciding whether to prosecute or not. It is evident that Cuomo lied to everyone, and should pay for the intentional murder of the senior citizens in the nursing homes. He was advised not to do this by a number of doctors and others, yet he chose to do it anyway. He knew what he was doing, now he must pay, there are no excuses, only more lies.

  4. 1 What I want is to Subpoena all Democrats in congress, upper and lower houses and the White House For all communications, voice mail,

    1. They wont let me post this on here, but that is alright, I have posted it on a number of other sites. The only thing that was offensive was that they didn’t like me calling out democrats.

  5. Goodness will conquer evil. Our government is twisted and evil and absolutely corrupt.If the past few months haven’t proved this fact nothing ever will. God Bless AMERICA !!!

  6. I will NEVER watch the VIEW. It should be taken off the air and the rest of the communist MEDIA. They are no good for our country. LIARS ,LIARS. They all have to be stopped because no one cares what they think. The thing that proves to millions of Americans is that they are stupid. They should shut their mouths.

    1. I can not understand why the view is still on the air. Everyone of them are dumb Dumbocrats and they let the world know it by their stupid racial comments. The viewers have to be dumbocrats, because any normal person with a brain will refuse to view anything that whopeee is on with her mouth giving hell to anyone that does not agree with her. What Happened when Trump won in 2016? So many of Hollywood PROMISED to move, if Trump won. The ONLY ONE that kept his word was DONALD J TRUMP. All the rest of them lied. TOO BAD they didn’t keep their promise. I watched The View for about 10 minutes a year ago and have not saw it since. The view and colbert will never be on my TV, but will be turned off BEFORE they ever start.

  7. Not only did KAMAL TOES HARRIS incite VIOLENCE by BLM she ALSO AIDED and ABETTED the VIOLENCE BY ASKING FOR DONATIONS TO BAIL OUT THE ARRESTED PROTESTORS AND RIOTERS. If TRUMP SAYING PEACEFULLY AND PATRIOTICALLY LET YOUR VOICES BE HEARD IS GROUBDS FOR IMPEACHEMENT THEN WHAT KAMAL TOES HARRIS DID AND SAID IS DEFINATELY GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHEMENT AND CRIMINAL CHARGES TO BE FILED ! THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN AS HARRIS IS DEMOCRAT AND THERE IS A DIFFERENT S

  8. I just love how people love to sit back, down a beer while pissing and moaning over the crap going on today!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    Members of the House
    202-224-3841

    Members of the Senate
    202-224-3121

    TOLL FREE:
    866-272-6622

    One call per rep!

    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

  9. By their own words that consitutes incitement to riot. Will she or other Democrats be charged , I think they will sweap every thing under the rug in the Presidents office.

  10. I believe in our GOD strongly but it crossed my mind why should HE bless us? We’ve slowly allowed the Democrats to shove HIM out and did we stand up and fight back? I pray every day that HE forgives us.

  11. God help us. We are in for a hard four year ride. But no matter how hard. I will still believe in God. As my cousin said while a prisoner of war. God was why I survived

  12. So they will allow Harris to defend her self from the truth that she created a go fund me account for criminals in jail and suggested the rioters to not slow up but to take it to the max and that’s OK BUT try to impeach a non sitting President for saying something he didn’t say is a blatant act of treason.

  13. Don’t you love Sen Raskin’s response. I am “not familiar” with Harris’s comments but that it is “absolutely unimaginable that Vice President Harris would ever incite violence or encourage or promote violence. Obviously, it’s completely irrelevant to the proceeding at hand, and I will allow her to defend herself.” Ms. Harris would never incite encourage or promote violence. How the hell does he know? Was he at the hearings for Cavanaugh? Did he hear how nasty she was when she questioned him? Did he listen to her speak on any of the late night shows or during interviews on National TV? How many times had he spoken to her as a Senator? Had they ever had lunch, dinner, or visited each others families? I would bet the answer is no. He has no clue as to what she thinks or would do. In fact, it was just another fib, like his evidence, he presented to try and smear the President.

    1. If you watched the DEM debates it was obvious that she hated Biden for his anti-busing stance back in the 60-70s. She said “she was on that bus”, which I find bizarre as her father was an economics professor and her mother was a MD! Someone please fact-check that for us! She is so FAKE, and SO RADICAL, the DEMs wouldn’t support her so WEAKLING BIDEN snuck her back in to get the radicals to vote for him, betraying the “legacy” DEMs who rejected her as too radical! She is MORE DANGEROUS THAN BIDEN! Impeach her and let Biden continue to flounder around. If Pelosi becomes VP, we have plenty grounds to impeach her on. Pushing FRADULENT RUSSIA HEARINGS AND TWO IMPEACHMENTS IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE OF HER HATRED OF A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS! WE ARE STILL THE MAJORITY AND NEED TO START ACTING LIKE IT!

  14. I know God is in charge I believe he is trying to open the eyes and ears of the believers I cannot understand the believers that sit back and do not want to get involved. They also will have to answer to God!!!

  15. Biden and Harris can both be impeached. Joe for China and Ukraine. Harris for aiding and abetting the rioters. Pelousi,waters,schumer,Schiff, McConnell, omar,aoc, tliab, pressley and clintons,ovomit and a bunch more, All incited violence AGAINST voting AMERICANS. We have it on tape, it has been all over the media.
    Now is the time before that weak pathetic excuse for a human let’s the rest of the diseased illegals in.

  16. MARTIN LUTHOR KING WANTED EQUALITY! That is what ALL AMERICANS SHOULD EXPECT! Since 1961, when JFK put in “AFFIRMATIVE ACTION”, through EXECUTIVE ACTION, BLACK people have had a PRIVILEDGED STATUS, by being moved to the front of the line for college scholarships and jobs! That IS PROOF OF WHO HAS PRIVILEDGED STATUS IN THE US! No other democracy in the world has such a policy, EVERY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD REJCTED THIS POLICY AS RACIST! The statistics over the years have shown many blacks have improved their status, High School and college graduations are at an ALL TIME HIGH! HARRIS WANTS TO MAKE THIS INJUSTICE EVEN GREATER BY SIMPLY PAYING PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR SKIN COLOR AND PUNISHING ALL WHITES! FOR HER RACIST BELIEFS SHE AHOULD BE IMPEACHED!

  17. EVERYONE, including me, feels sure the election was stolen by dead people voting, voting 3 or 4 times thru mail in ballots. When a state sends out 6000 absentee ballots in one county and gets back 8000, someone can’t add. That is 2000 MORE than all the registered voters in the county. Hmmmm. Anyone find that strange, besides me??????
