    VP Kamala Harris did exactly what everyone expected and described the regime’s most reasonable critics as “racist” during a recent speech on the Biden Administration at the DNC. Beginning, she described America’s principles as being under attack, which is true, though she fingered Republicans as being responsible and Democrats as defending those principles, which is the exact opposite of what’s correct. Speaking on that, she said:

    [There] is so much at stake in this election. And so I just wanted to share with you a couple of thoughts as we all recommit ourselves to this, which, as Doug said, is a recommitment to our democracy. It is a recommitment to foundational principles.

    It is a recommitment to the ideals of our nation and the basis of the foundation of our nation, a belief in the importance of freedom and liberty, the importance of justice and equality, the importance of understanding that we want leadership in our country that understands that the true strength of leadership is not measured based on who you beat down, it is measured based on who you lift up. (Applause.)

    […]As the President said, this is an inflection moment in the history of our country. And, dare I say, this is a moment where not only are the stakes high, but there is a full-on intentional attack on hard-won freedoms, where these supposed so-called and certainly extremist leaders have an agenda that, let’s be clear, is not just about the people of Texas and Florida, it’s a national agenda that is about a full-on attack on hard-won freedoms — the freedom to exercise your vote, which is an expression of your voice. And around our country, especially after our win in 2020, those supposed leaders who have been passing or proposing laws to make it more difficult for the people to vote. This is a national agenda that is at play.

    That’s when she then went after those who are worried about inflation, calling them racist. In her words:

    “And look, there are a lot of people out there who are attacking our administration because of inflation. Two things. First, well, that’s Putin’s price hikes. Things are only going up in price because of the mean man in Russia doing mean things to Zelensky, who’s doing the right thing and promising to import millions of migrants and make gay marriage legal in Ukraine if he wins.

    “So Putin’s to blame for being a racist transphobe. And, anyway, the inflation happening under this administration…well, this administration is the most diverse ever. We have lots of women of color, transgender heroes, and very few white men…other than the president, who’s really a black woman at heart, as I know.

    “So if you criticize this administration and the job it’s doing…well, then you’re criticizing the job the black women and transgender individuals have done, and that’s pretty racist and transphobic, I think. So we have to fight the racists that say inflation is bad, because the inflation happened under the watch of black women.”

    Now that DeSantis has officially put himself in the presidential race, who will you be voting for?(Required)
