Democrats claim to be about tolerance and equality. Unfortunately, they don’t take that same approach for all oppressed groups.
Vice President Kamala Harris applauded a student who said Israel was committing “ethnic genocide” and objected to American support for the Iron Dome defense system, Breitbart reported. Harris was making an appearance at George Mason University Tuesday in honor of Voter Registration Day.

The unnamed female student said she was of Iranian and Yemeni heritage and was angry at U.S. support for Israel while speaking to Harris at a Q&A session. The young woman explained how she saw pro-Palestine protests all summer, “but then just a few days ago there were funds allocated to continue backing Israel which hurts my heart because it’s ethnic genocide and displacement of people, the same that happened in America, and I’m sure you’re aware of this,” she claimed.
The student also said that her position on the issue was ignored despite these protests. She further claimed tax money that should go to the poor is actually being diverted to “to inflaming Israel and backing Saudi Arabia and what-not.”
Harris seemed to agree with this position as she told the student she was “glad” she spoke up. “And again, this is about the fact that your voice, your perspective, your experience, your truth, should not be suppressed and it must be heard, right? And one of the things we’re fighting for in a democracy, right?” Harris said, according to Fox News.
“Our goal should be unity, but not uniformity, right?” the vice president later said. “Unity should never be at the expense of telling anyone personally that, for the sake of unity, ‘Oh, you be quiet about that thing. You suppress that thing. Let’s not deal with that thing.’ That’s not unity. True unity is everyone in that room has a voice.”
However, the opinion Harris was supporting is an extreme anti-Zionist position that doesn’t deserve consideration. Though the Iron Dome missile defense system is a completely defensive measure, leftists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) object to its continued funding, with her calling Israel’s protection method “charged and fraught for many communities,” The Hill reported.
Democrats bend over backward to extend support for every oppressed group, real or imagined. However, they don’t seem to care that Israel’s enemies want the Jewish nation wiped off the map.
