Jon Favreau: “She supports something extremely close to ‘Medicare for All,’ which Bernie Sanders acknowledged in his statement supporting her. She’s for the Green New Deal. She has one of the most liberal records in the U.S. Senate”
Kamala Harris is not a moderate, unless by “moderate” you mean not a commie. By every objective measure, she is on the far left of the Demcoratic Party.
Her policy history and behavior is wacky, as I documented the day Joe Biden announced she would be the Democratic VP nominee, Flashbacks to Kamala Harris’ wacky policies and behavior.
The most common claim made as to why she is “moderate” is that she was a prosecutor. True, but she was an abusive prosecutor.
Abusing power as a prosecutor does not make her moderate. It makes her dangerous.
Jon Favreau is a far left-winger and famed speechwriter for Barack Obama. He recently laughed at the attempts to make Harris appear to be a moderate. She’s no moderate, he insisted, unless the Overton Window has move so far to the extreme left that progressive are in complete control:
Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau mocked some media outlets for referring to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as a “moderate,” with the “Pod Save America” host calling the notion “hilarious.”
“It was hilarious to me that she’s being called, in all this coverage, a ‘moderate,’ like Joe Biden has found a fellow moderate or centrist. She supports something extremely close to ‘Medicare for All,’ which Bernie Sanders acknowledged in his statement supporting her. She’s for the Green New Deal. She has one of the most liberal records in the U.S. Senate,” Favreau said….
“If you want to call Kamala Harris’s record in the Senate and her policies that she’s supporting now centrist or moderate, great,” he continued. “If that’s where the Overton window has moved, then congratulations to all the progressive activists, because you have f—ing moved the shit out of that window — that supporting the Green New Deal and basically Medicare for All is now moderate and centrist. Fantastic, I’ll take it.”
