Kamala Harris tweets radical leftist advocacy of “equity” over “equality”

Kamala Harris tweets radical leftist advocacy of “equity” over “equality”

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:

Andrew Sullivan, who previously said he is voting for Biden-Harris, but he nonetheless correctly called out Harris in two tweets:

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.

Terrible. Notice that when the “camera” pans up, we see Harris’s name first.

The left can only win by lying or misleading the people about what they are actually doing.

She will be a dangerous president if the race goes to the Democrats.

If Trump wins, this woman is not going away.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | November 1, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    OH she is GOING AWAY.

    All the STD Clinics around the world have warning posters with her mug shot on them.

    Maybe. Maybe not. A losing VP candidate is not exactly a powerful voice in American politics, and Harris has shown that she has no real support even inside the Democrat party.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Evil Otto. | November 2, 2020 at 7:00 am

      I understand, but, she will not shut up and go away. The press will fawn all over her, and she will continue trading on her alleged race and her indoor plumbing.

Harrison Bergeron, call your office.

Her tour bus got run out of Texas and she was here in Gwinnett county today. I wonder if they emptied their blackwater tank on the side of the road like Hillary did 4 years ago.

The Dems shit on us 4 years back and they will shit on us if elected.

The ONLY reason Biden is top of the ticket is because those in the back-room of the D Party knew Bernie would be too radical; that Biden would be the easier sell. Bernie had the momentum before the So. Carolina primary which by design became his graveyard.

I was hoping that Bernie would have been the choice. Then, we would be presented with the big question, Which Way, America? The way of the Framers or the way of the UN/EU/PRC?

We’re still presented with this question, but its presence has been hidden. Biden got the nod because he added a much-needed camouflage. His bringing on Harris is the Bernie campaign. If Biden wins, she’s the new president. Really frightening!

She doesn’t believe in anything.

She’s just a prostitute who has now taken the ‘easy way’ of leftism. (Her knees were getting sore.)

A prostitute is all she is and all she’ll ever be.

    Yes, we know what she is, and that her rates aren’t that high. The thing is, though, you don’t pay a prostitute for sex. You pay them to go away afterwards. So I am not sure that she is a prostitute if she isn’t going away.

    Kami the Commies number one qualification is that of being Willie Browns willing willie warmer.

Make no mistake, this is a desperate pander for the black vote which has seen a notably sizeable shift away from voting Democrats to voting Republican in this election.

What Kamala “Heels Up” Harris and Democrats are doing is simply promising the black voting community more free stuff in an act of desperation to steal back black votes. Democrats are still treating the black community like infantile gullible children.

    CorkyAgain in reply to FlatFoot. | November 1, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    So, when they equate the average black voter’s interests with those of the looters, who’s the real racist?

    (As if we didn’t already know.)

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to FlatFoot. | November 2, 2020 at 7:19 am

    That “sizeable shift” will be proved true or false on election day. Talk is one thing, what actually happens in the voting booth is another story.

She is a member of the Progressive Church with its Pro-Choice quasi-religion (e.g. “ethics”) and peculiar diversity dogma (i.e. color judgment: racism, sexism, genderism, etc.).

Point of order, that’s not what equity means. It’s what she means by it, but she’s misusing it. As a lawyer, she knows what equity actually means, so her misuse is deliberate.

Equity means fairness, natural justice. It’s not equality of opportunity or of outcome, but of treatment along the way. So yes, if someone starts out with an advantage, and everything else is exactly equal (which of course it never is), then it is equitable — it is right and just — that that person should end with the same advantage as he started with. This is superior to equality, and it is what we should be pursuing.

    They should have shown Michael Jordan able to reach the rope and me needing a stool. You can give me all the resources in the world and I will not be a star basketball player. These people always fail to see how their plan works on their own successes. But, this does mean that in a Biden administration a continuing failure for certain people to succeed just means they have not gotten enough resources from the people who have succeeded, end of discussion.

    This is nothing more than the standard Democrat ploy. When they need to camouflage an odious concept, they steal a high sounding word from the language and abuse it to describe that concept. After a time, when the odium has soaked into the word and destroyed it, they steal another one and pretend the concept is entirely new and different than it was yesterday.

    Equity is nothing more than affirmative action, which is nothing more than quotas, which is nothing more than racial discrimination.

    I usually agree with many of your points on this blog, but here you are wrong. “Equity” has a meaning in Leftist academic circles and Critical Theory that encapsulates the line from “Animal Farm” where “some…are more equal than others”.

      Political Hat, “equity” has a meaning in the English language, and specifically in Legal English, that is the exact opposite of that.

      Everything has a “meaning in Leftist academic circles and Critical Theory” that is the opposite of what it means in English.

        Nonetheless, the “academic” definition is indeed what they meant and what people understand it to mean in this context. A different legal definition of “equity” that isn’t odious allows them to offer a Motte & Bailey fallacy wit the “academic” definition they are pushing being the “Motte” and the more innocuous “legal” definition being the “Bailey” they retreat into when confronted.

Joe owes Satan, big-time. I wonder if he ever imagined how it was going to be, at the end. For so many years, Joe seemed to believe that he really was all of that stuff the devil told him he was..

Smalll wonder that he loved serving Obama. Obama held him in contempt, just like Joe has for America.

Is this an attempt to fire up the Bernie Bros?

The reality that they are ignoring is that Life does not allow for everyone to end up at the same place. Some people are not capable of ending up at the same place no matter how much of a boost they get. Some people do not even WANT to end up at the same place.

    They can keep inventing more and more aggressive “boosts” until they get the “right” equitable winner. Problem is, there won’t be anything for them to win. Everyone else will have gone full “I pretend to work and they pretend to pay me” mode as in the USSR.

“Why would a vice presidential candidate seemingly endorse full-on Marxism days before a general election?”

I used to think Sullivan had an intellect. I guess not, if he’s puzzled by obvious questions like that one.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to henrybowman. | November 2, 2020 at 12:59 am

    Sullivan is the openly gay Brit immigrant hypocrite who was seeking non-safe gay sex on the internet (bare backing without condoms) when AIDS was at its worse. The gay community ripped him several new ones over that back then.

      Sorry, but gay is another tarpaulin word that has already absorbed all of its underlying odium. When I was small, it was a word you sang proudly in Christmas carols. Now it’s a word that grade schoolers use to taunt each other.

        Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | November 2, 2020 at 8:27 pm

        “Gay” had a sexual meaning since long before you were born, no matter how old you are. By the early 20th century it meant sexually loose, as opposed to “strait”. That included but was not limited to homosexual. I’ve seen a reference from as late as 1930 that used it in that sense. But by the 1940s it had narrowed to mean homosexual specifically.

I’m confused. “Equity means that everyone ends up in the same place and can compete on equal footing.”

(1) It’s not about kumbaya, it’s still about competition.

(2) They’re just going to decide when the competition starts and who gets how many chips.

(3) If they took a bunch away from you to give to those they prefer before, do you think they’ll have a change of heart and return some to you later? I don’t.

So it’s about picking winners, and if you aren’t sure that winner is you, it surely isn’t.

    drednicolson in reply to artichoke. | November 2, 2020 at 2:05 am

    The socialist claims the free market is inherently unfair and that the government needs to step in and be a referee. But referees are not supposed to pick winners. And do we even trust it with the job?

    A government with the power to give you everything you want, also has the power to take everything you have.

    henrybowman in reply to artichoke. | November 2, 2020 at 3:08 pm

    Nothing says they won’t redistribute the points in the middle of the competition, either.

At least Barney Fife only had 1 bullet with which to shoot himself in the foot! Democrats seem to have high-capacity magazines full of them! LOL! I’m surprised they have any toes left! But by all means, Dems…fire away!

kamala is finished on the national stage. She might not want to go away, but it will be clear November 4 that she’s political poison. She was probably the worst choice the biden camp could have made. It also indicated how much of a puppet joe biden really is. Can you imagine letting someone who essentially called you a racist to your face onto the ticket? C’mon, man! We won’t need an autopsy of the biden/harris campaign, we got to watch it die in real time.

    Antifundamentalist in reply to CKYoung. | November 2, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    The DNC wants a candidate it can control. Harris will do as she is told, sign what she is told to sign. That is why they picked her. They are counting on Trump Derangement Syndrome to carry the election, because they know she can’t carry it on her own, and Biden is all but a vegetable.

So I guess this means the guy who lives in a tent on the I80 freeway in Berkeley should get a boost into a million dollar home just like the ones all the Biden- Harris voters in the “Hate Free” city live in.

    henrybowman in reply to CapeBuffalo. | November 2, 2020 at 2:56 pm

    Except for the “million dollar” exaggeration, this is the precise history of Bedford Stuyvesant, and it is a classic example of what happens when you do that: they turn your magnificent apartment building into the equivalent of a collection of tents.

    My grandfather, a canny old-world immigrant to Rhode Island, always used to say that if you have a litter of puppies and can’t keep them all, never give any puppies away. Always charge something for them, even if it’s five cents. That way, you know that the puppy will be treated right because the recipient attaches a value to it. I have stuck to that principal all my life, and I don’t apologize for it.

IF elected I would predict she would be the actual President by July 1, 2021, Sundowner Joe is going downhill fast.

In your equality of opportunity, you got Afferamitve action and quotas mean there is nothing equitable your opportunity of outcome or about you.

Woohoo! We’re all going to be billionaires!!!

Red Votes Matter !!!

Poverty for all but the elite. I can’t wait. Guess I better practice my dumpster diving skills. /s

Take her seriously. The California ballot this time around has a repeal the Constitutional provision requiring equal rights before the law.

They claim it is to make “affirmative action” legal.

Equality of outcome is automatic if you teach good character, but the left is teaching the opposite.

“They used to call that communism.”

Still do and that is exactly what Kami the Commie [email protected] is,A Communist whore.

Well folks, the question of how to pronounce her name is solved.
It’s Commala!

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.”

Bingo. And if anyone would bother to do even a little bit of research into her past, they would find that Kamala is, indeed, a Communist – and always has been.

    chocopot in reply to chocopot. | November 2, 2020 at 9:58 am

    And BTW, if anyone had done any research into Obozo’s past before he was “elected,” they would have found the same thing.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could explain to me why, why, the DNC thought that Kamala Harris would make a fine VP. She was clobbered in the primary season. She didn’t make it to New Hampshire. She was publicly eviscerated by Tulsi Gabbard (who would have been a much better running mate for Joe). She polled 1% or less routinely there at the end.

So someone needs to explain the 4-D chess that made all the folks in the DNC and the Biden campaign say, “yessh! We need Kamala Harris as the VP! And then we can 25th her to the presidency!!”

Did they think California would otherwise be in play?

    chocopot in reply to stevewhitemd. | November 2, 2020 at 10:42 am

    Dare I say it is because Kamala is a full-blooded Communist and that is what the Communist – er, I mean Democrat – Party really wants in The White House?

Everyone seems to not understand what “equity” means and just how dangerous it is.

“Equity” is far, far worse than “equality of outcome”.

“Equity” means having an equivalent share in governing society, which requires inequality of outcome because White people are considered to still have “White privilege” and the only way a non-White individual can have an equivalent share in governing society is if White people are discriminated against and end up less than equal in outcome.

It is justification for perpetual discrimination on the basis of race *regardless* of outcome.
