Kamala Harris takes heat for tone-deaf remarks about rural voters

In an embarrassing revelation of just how out of touch she is with everyday Americans, Vice President Kamala Harris said on Friday that voter identification laws impose an impossible burden on those living in rural areas, who she believes do not have the ability to access photocopying machines, as the Washington Examiner reported.

During an interview on BET, Harris addressed voter integrity laws that require individuals to submit a copy of their identification together with a ballot, suggesting that such a scenario would be a onerous – perhaps even prohibitive – hurdle for rural Americans because, for Americans in such areas, “there’s no Kinko’s, there’s no Office Max near them.”

The reaction to Harris’ tone-deaf observation was swift and unsparing, with conservative pundit Stephen L. Miller noting, “Kamala and her party think rural communities don’t have cars, or shopping, or retail, or Internet, or phones, or computers or mailboxes.”

Miller further suggested that Harris should be asked “what she thinks automated farming is,” adding, “She has it in her head that everything between San Francisco and Chicago is The Grapes of Wrath.”

Political commentator Chris Barron also took to Twitter to point out the absurdity and utter condescension of Harris’ take, joking, “I live on top of a mountain on the WV/VA border and I can photocopy my ID. I mean I do it while moonshining White Lightning while dueling banjos play in the background but I can still do it.”

Harris’ bizarre characterization of rural America comes amid her announcement last week of a $25 million expansion of the “I Will Vote” campaign of the Democratic National Committee in response to voter integrity laws being passed in a growing number of states.

According to Harris the purpose of the investment is to secure “the tools and technology to register voters, to educate voters, to turn out voters, to protect voters,” according to Politico, and to “fight back” against attempts to introduce safeguards such as voter identification, limits on mail-in voting, and restrictions against ballot harvesting, among others.

However, given that recent polling suggests that 80% of Americans support voter identification requirements, and the United States Supreme Court just upheld Arizona voting rules that prohibit ballot harvesting and block the counting of ballots cast in the wrong precinct, the pushback on Harris’ disingenuous arguments about the perceived lack of copy machines in rural localities may be the least of the Democrats’ problems.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.
