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.”

Can someone please start to move this Great Country forward instead of all this nonsense. Americans are hurting and no ones seems to care. We are at a point where term limits should be set at one month with open impeachment options for anyone no one likes. It has gotten to be that SAD.

I don’t think this should be an impeachment trail … this should be a trail for the dirty election that was stolen from a man that did nothing but help our country and the American people … the Supreme Court is now looking into this ….what has ever happened in America is that the Supreme Court should over turn this election and give it back to its rightful winner … and term limits should be in place .. if the president can only serve two terms it should be that way for the rest

This is a dog and pony show to keep people guessing what will happen next. This administration doesn’t give a da8n about their constituents. All Nancy, Chuck & John et all care about is continuing their inflated salary. Too much talk, not enough action!! They are dragging this out for as long as possible to show their superiority, while people are going hungry and children are missing out on their education while other countries are laughing about the situation. There is nothing that I have said that hasn’t been said before by others. NOBODY CARES!!

This Great Country may be a thing of the past. China is going to overtake the US in many aspects with the concurrence of the present administration. With the country so fundamentally divided politically the outlook for remaining “Great” is in real danger. If you have doubts about the emergence of China– read the book “Kill Chain” by Christian Brose. Remember what Andrew Cuomo said, “America never was that Great.” I just wonder how many Americans are actually paying attention. Lies and disinformation are the rule of the day.

You do not have to read books on China overtaking America or the rest of the world. The handwriting is on the wall and in every article you buy: it more and more says made in China. Whether you shop in The Netherlands, Germany or even a land as far as Australia that cheap stuff is everywhere and the falsely the trademarks also. So do not be fooled if you care that is. And also remember that China have factories all over the world even here in New York State. All their fortune cookies are made in San Fransisco. Their restaurants have about taken over all the hamburger stands with teriyaki burgers or shredded filled BBQ pork humbaugh’s as number one on the list. Love goes through the stomach and melts the brain cells.

Harris’ bailing out rioters of all kinds is, in and of itself, incitement to violence. She makes it possible for them to go back out and do some more damage. It IS incitement.

How is it irrelevant??? It is the exact same thing, the only difference is the location. In fact Harris’s is worse because she knew they were burning building, turning over police vehicles and setting them on fire, looting, hurting law enforcement officials, etc., etc. She should be impeached. She never should have been elected.

Unfortunately, the current Democrat Silly Symphony of DJT Phychosis billed as “impeachment” steals all the oxygen from the truth. An obvious question is all but forgotten. Why are there still federal troops in Washington, DC ? Democrats are not stupid, despite many who believe they are. They know what they did in November. Despite their “move on, nothing to see here” attitude they are desperate to insure Americans will not rise in protest over the stolen election. Yes, it was stolen, and done so brazenly it is hard to not see the evidence. But to tried and true all blue dem’s, it’s easy to look away and say move on !
There is no moving on until this issue is heard by an unbiased court.
Democrats in power are using the threat of actual military force by accusing true patriots who want the evidence heard of having already done that !
Many on January 6 acted out their desperate fantasy, on both sides. Now, Democrats in power are using that power in the attempt to keep the actual threat rising out of the stolen election from ever fully being seen.
As a veteran, I am appalled by our armed services being prostituted to block any peaceful protest.

It is brazenly obvious to anyone with a functioning brain to see that the Democrats believe in “Laws are meant for Thee but not for me!”
Regardless of the situation they will complain, object, and vilify anyone or anything they deem contrary to their philosophy or point of view! They speak of UNITY and then proceed to DIVIDE! They speak of integrity and then they cheat! They speak of truth and then they LIE!

Yet, they want you to BELIEVE THEM! Really? Perhaps they consider you the American Public either too dumb or insanely gullible and believe they are RIGHT!

Quote: “Americans are too stupid to decide elections” – Adam Schiff.

Quote: “It is enough that the people know there was an election, the people who cast the votes decide nothing, the people who count the votes decide everything.” – Joseph Stalin.

She is nothing more than another rioter herself, just like cori burke lead riots in fergson, mo. which lead to deaths, destroying of town and now she is in congress with her loud mouth. Throw her name in the ring. Harris only got vp cause she reminded biden how he mistreated her meeting years before. biden is yellowbelly and allowing blacks to destroy our country. There are good ones who don’t care for these witches . Then they are convicts and do nothing people. The givemes, dreamers, meme, etc. CRUSH them now, Laws were in place years before they wanted things their way. Stop letting them twist and making convicts like m. brown, floyd, etc become a hero. They chose their ways. We fought years ago to free them, and this is how they became True Americans? Research people. If obamie had been treated like Trump had for four years, he would have been shipped back to his birth place. Harris isn’t a role model for black young girls, she is a phony . IMPEACH HER AND THE OLD MAN biden.

Also Waters made a comment of killing Trump and Biden wants to take Trump behind the school gym and BEAT THE HELL OUT OF HIM. So tell me how they can say things like this and nothing is done about it? Biden is an idiot and Kalama is a Racist in the full sense of the word. Impeach the whole Congress and leaders.

She is as bad if not worse then them. WHY are Biden and Kamala allowing their groups BLM and ANTIFA to continue.

When Trump said “Fight for what you believe in”, no one but the Democrats took that as a physical fight. More than likely, he was asking for donations. Kamala Harris was watching rioters burn, loot, and harm people when she said: “They’re not gonna let up, and they should not.” What kind of Vice President says that about its people? That woman has about as much sense as Pelosi. But that’s how Democrats are. They can get away with anything, Republicans can’t. What happened to justice in our country?

We have been bombarded with this “Rule of Law”, “No one is Above the Law” and “Equal under the Law” yet, we have all observed none of that is true. It is applied heavy handily against one group and not at all to another. The bar has been lowered so much one could easily apply their adjusted law to anyone, including them. When or if the republicans return to a majority they would be wise to either better define our laws or apply them equally to the left.

We need to start cleaning house, it’s long over due. Start at the top and go completely down to state and local government. There are nothing but a vm bunch of crooks, on all sides, left,’right and in between. What other reason is there but to get rich and keep the American citizens down. Just look at all the social programs in place under the guise of offering help, only to keep you dependent on them and not be able to prosper. It’s time to hold the politicians accountable for their action. Enough is enough. Throw them all out and try them for “Crimes and Misdemeanors”. The demorats want to totally destroy the only president in my lifetime , and I’m 65 yrs old, to really have the good of the American people at heart. His policies did more to helped Americans than did the demorats in the past 100 years. It’s time the American people to be truly heard.
