Kamala Harris is the single most radical person we have had on a major party ticket. Andrew Sullivan: “Equitable treatment means we all end up in the same place.” That’s equality of *outcomes* enforced by the government. They used to call that communism.”
Kamala Harris tweeted an animated video which sounds familiar to those of us who have lived or followed radical leftist campus politics. The video espouses “equity” over “equality.”
What’s the difference, don’t they sound the same?
I addressed this difference last July, NY Times Chief Classical Music Critic: End “blind auditions,” pick orchestra musicians based on race and gender ;
On campus, this is called “equity,” a euphemism for racial, gender and other discrimination. It’s the opposite of equal opportunity, it’s demanding equal results even if it means discriminating against some people on the basis of race, ethnicity or other immutable factors. It’s the core driving the “antiracism” movement on campus. When campus activists and administrators say “equity” (as opposed to “equality”), what they really mean is discrimination based on race to achieve a desired racial outcome.
The desire to move away from “blind auditions” hurts people who otherwise would have been chosen based on the quality of their music, or in other contexts, their academic performance on standardized tests and other objective measurements. “Equity” is not a victimless crime, it’s just that the victims don’t have the political and social justice power to stop it.
Here is Harris’ tweet and video:

Why would a vice presidential candidate seemingly endorse full-on Marxism days before a general election? Does she believe government should enforce equality of outcome for everyone? Seriously?
“Equitable treatment means we all end up in the same place.” That’s equality of *outcomes* enforced by the government. They used to call that communism.
It’s not just alien to our economic system, it’s alien to our civil rights legacy in which equality and equal opportunity were paramount. It requires, as critical race theorist Ibram Kendi writes in the *bible* of the critical race theory movement, How to be an Antiracist:
“The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.”
The entire nation will be an activist campus if Harris has her way. There’s a reason her Senate record was rated to the left of Bernie.
Kamala Harris is the single most radical person we have had on a major party ticket. And if Biden-Harris wins, within the first term she will be president as Joe’s mental and medical condition forces him to resign.DONATE
