Kamala Harris is a deeply divisive figure who has distinguished herself in politics mostly by exhibiting uninhibited ambition, and vengefulness towards her political enemies. (Just ask pro-life advocates in California)
But the media is insistent that she’s an inspirational figure, and if you don’t agree, you’re racist or sexist. And they’re willing to go to any length to protect her.
That caused a major scandal today, when it was discovered that the Washington Post, which has the ironic slogan “Democracy Dies In Darkness,” tried to delete an embarrassing profile of Harris, written when the Post was presumably supporting a different candidate for the Democratic nomination.
Last week, the Washington Post excised a segment from one of its profiles of Vice President Kamala Harris originally published 18 months ago. Reason described the deletion as an attempt to “memory-hole Kamala Harris’s bad joke about inmates begging for food and water.”
The Washington Post removed the entire anecdote in an edited version of its Harris profile published last week. Reason described the original profile’s introduction as “a memorable anecdote in which Harris bizarrely compared the rigors of the campaign trail to…life behind bars. And then proceeded to laugh—at the idea of an inmate begging for a sip of water.”
Reason described the deleted anecdote as revelatory of Harris’s baseness: “The Post profile provided a mask-slipping moment that seemed to perfectly capture a warped sense of justice and lack of basic human dignity—all in just a few hundred words.”
It’s almost like the old Soviet-style of media – something that was said a few months before is now declared “contrary to the interests of the party,” and memory-holed. People are erased from photos, articles are deleted, and all the while, the media pretends to value “truth.”
News flash – the media is lying to you 24 hours a day. And yes, Kamala Harris deserves criticism, not just for her awkward and inappropriate moments, but also for her shameful record as an attorney-general and senator. You won’t hear that in the mainstream media, which is why you can read it here. It’s going to be a long four years, but we’ll cover these issues every day.
