Ruminations of the Day – Kamala Harris and Antifa

Sometimes, there’s just too much happening all at once, so it makes it difficult to decide on a topic. So instead, how about two?


Here we go again with the birther thing. Really?! And it’s not even a birther question. People are just calling it that.

It worked so well last time, that someone said to themselves – self, I know we looked like complete idiots before with the whole Barack Obama birth certificate. Because of our idiocy, a new word was even coined: birther.

This time the sights have been set on Kamala Harris. No, unlike Obama, no one is claiming Harris was born elsewhere and thus not an American citizen. Websites and supposed journalists are just using the “birther” moniker because it’s more sensational.

Some black guy, Ali Alexander, tweeted that he’s tired of Kamala Harris trying to “rob American blacks of our history.”

And what “history” would that be? That you’re in fact, just an American like the rest of us and your family has probably been in America, and free, longer than a lot of whites have even been here. Is that the heritage you’re whining about? If Mr. Alexander is descended from slaves, he’s no more African at this point than I am British.

Anyway – here’s the tweet.

Embed tweet:

Alexander, who looks a little like Sammy Davis Jr. from the side, has a phony beef, that Harris isn’t African American, because she is half Jamaican and half Indian (from India). Not the Indian that Elizabeth Warren claimed to be.

Now, of all the offensive things that Kamala Harris is, this is what we’re going to concentrate on? Fact is, that Harris could very well have descended from slaves. Only four percent, yes I said 4 percent, of African slaves were ever transported to the United States.

The other 96% of Africans were taken to South and Central America, and to the Caribbean.

Kamala Harris is tough, ruthless and in my opinion, completely devoid of a moral compass. She will say and do anything to achieve what she wants. In other words, the perfect radical leftist candidate. And she’s the only one we on the right should fear.

Mr. Alexander might instead concentrate on Harris’s record of prosecuting illegal immigrants and being in league with ICE.


On CNN’s home page there is not a single mention of the savage beating of independent journalist Andy Ngo, at the hands of the ironically named Antifa. These fascist radical leftist thugs beat the hell of Ngo and others during a protest in Portland Oregon. Reports are that he was specifically targeted.

Now, CNN did cover the protests in Hong Kong, but not the one in our own country. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find any in depth coverage about Portland at all in the leftist media. But, then again, why would they.

There is no longer any journalism coming from the left anymore. It’s just all advocacy for communism/fascism/socialism. They certainly aren’t going to report on how poorly their Antifa brethren are behaving, or the fact that leftist Mayors like Portland’s Ted Wheeler just allow the thugs to riot while apparently giving a stand down order to police. Sounds a lot like Baltimore, where the leftist Mayor suggested that rioters need a safe space to riot.

In short, Antifa has become the enforcers of the left. Either purposely or by coincidence, Antifa are doing the bidding of this new breed of leftist, where action, speech or even thought that doesn’t adhere to leftist doctrine is strictly verboten. They have become what the KKK was to Southern democrats decades ago.
