Kamala Harris has positioned herself as a feminist leader, a trailblazer set to make history as the first female vice president. However, her record — especially in recent days — says otherwise.
After hosting a fundraiser with a shockingly sexist Democrat megadonor, Kamala Harris went on — just days later — to praise Jacob Blake, who was shot by police officers attempting to arrest him after he allegedly sexually assaulted an ex-girlfriend at her home.
Harris declared after meeting with Blake’s family this week, “I mean, they’re an incredible family. And what they’ve endured, and they just do it with such dignity and grace. And you know, they’re carrying the weight of a lot of voices on their shoulders.”
Blake’s attorney, Ben Crump, issued a statement after the meeting, claiming that Harris “told Jacob that she was also proud of him and how he is working through his pain.” Blake is currently recovering in a Milwaukee hospital.
Tiana Lowe of the Washington Examiner pointed out on Wednesday:
To recap, Blake broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend back in May, digitally raped her while one of their children slept in bed beside her, and stole her car keys and debit card prior to fleeing the scene of the crime. Wisconsin issued both an open warrant for Blake’s arrest for third-degree sexual assault and a restraining order for the victim. Blake violated the restraining order, triggering the police encounter in question.
Blake has been charged with third-degree sexual assault and misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and trespassing. He pleaded not guilty to the charges from his hospital bed on Friday.
The left has chosen to lionize Blake, who is facing serious charges of sexual assault, in order to score points against Republicans and Donald Trump. It seems like the political utility of #MeToo may have run its course.
