Yesterday I was proud to join with @RepJayapal (left) and @aijenpoo to discuss the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, which we will introduce to guarantee domestic workers the dignity, benefits, and legal protections they deserve. From U.S. Senate Office of Kamala Harris. Via Wikimedia Commons.

Today one’s silence speaks volumes.

Vice President Kamala Harris stayed silent when a college student accused Israel of committing “ethnic genocide” during the VP’s visit to George Mason University. The student accused Israel of committing genocide against Palestinians while suggesting the U.S. shouldn’t be funding Israel’s Iron Dome defense. Instead of politely correcting the student, Kamala supported the anti-Israel remark saying “your truth cannot be suppressed.”

The Daily Wire reports:

“You brought up how the power of the people and demonstrations and organizing is very valuable in America,” the student began. “But I see that over the summer there have been protests and demonstrations in astronomical numbers standing with Palestine. 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.”

“Americans are struggling because of lack of public health care, affordable housing, and all this money goes to funding Israel and backing Saudi Arabia and whatnot and I think that the people have spoken very often in what they do need, and I feel like there is a lack of listening,” she continued. “And I just feel like I need to bring this up with you because it affects my life and people I really care about.”

Vice President Harris responded she was “glad’ the student spoke up.

“A democracy is its strongest when everyone participates. It is its weakest when anyone is left out,” Harris continued. “That’s not only about being physically present but that your voice is present.”

“Our goal should be unity, but not uniformity,” the vice president said. “Unity should never be at the expense of telling any one person, ‘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. And then we see where that ends up in terms of a healthy debate on the issues.”

Tensions between the U.S. and Israel during the Biden administration have become strained because of President Biden’s attempt to re-establish an Obama-era nuclear agreement with Iran.

Harris is pure hypocrite and thinks as deeply as a piss ant. She talks about not suppressing anyone’s voice but she is a champion of the WOKE left who do that constantly. The student talked about massive demonstration supporting the Palestinians – my ass, a few scattered parades of wackos. We have supported Israel since it’s inception in 1947 and will continue to do so as the ONLY democracy in the Middle East. If the Israelis were to commit to a policy of genocide there would be no warnings prior to retaliatory missile and artillery strikes and the strikes would be much, much larger. The cost of the Iron Dome as bourn by the USA is a pittance and it’s technology is being studied for use here to protect the USA. This student is a typical Leftwing airhead who has no concept of the real world and Communism. Harris isn’t much more informed just sneakier. Hey, Kamala, great job on the border, Czar. Harris and the Demoncrats hate the middle class and the blue collar. If not why are they working overtime to destroy it and our way of life? They are sowing the wind.

Kamala Harris did not correct that student because she is an anti-Semite. She may as well be a Squad member, she is a far-left nutcase like they are. Harris must never be President. She isn’t qualified to be VP, let alone president. She is un-American, has no patriotism. She is communistic in her values. She doesn’t have American values.
