Kamala Harris, shortly after the election, tweeted the “ideals that will guide the Harris-Biden (oops, the Biden-Harris) administration.
Hope. Unity. Decency. Truth.
Roger Kimball wants to know if Harris has been studying the left’s favorite how-to manual, 1984?
Winston turned a switch and the voice sank somewhat, though the words were still distinguishable. The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely…
Recently, Dick and I met a friend at a local restaurant. Our friend informed us that as far as the Coronavirus is concerned, she was all behind the “science”.
The inclusion of “science” underscores how prescient Orwell was, writes Mr. Kimball in Specttor.US.
(Orwell) would have delighted in its spurious invocation in the left’s single biggest assault on prosperity, the Green New Deal, a cornerstone of the Biden-Harris platform, to say nothing of its weaponization in the lockdowns, mask mandates and general hysteria that have informed our response to COVID-19.
Again, it will be interesting to see what steps Big Tech takes to cleanse the Internet of contrary evidence.
For example, there certainly was not an abundance of decency to be found in Sen. Harris’s vicious attack on Brett Kavanaugh during the SCOTUS hearings. Mr. Kimball checked on some footage that is still available. Various clips tweeted out by President Trump have been flushed into the great digital “oubliette” with the notice “account suspended,” he reports.
Among the big challenges will be memories of the recent violence. Are they commendable as long as they are separate from the ones that are not OK and now considered totally reprehensible?
Keeping violent acts separate from those that are not OK and must be regarded as totally reprehensible is going to be a tall order.
Back in June, when burning cities, torching police cars and maiming policemen with lasers were all the rage, Kamala Harris gloated that the riots are “not going to stop”.
Kamala Harris, June 2020
They’re not going to stop. This is a movement, I’m telling you. They’re not gonna stop. And everyone beware because they’re not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop before Election Day and they’re not going to stop after Election Day. And everyone should take note of that. They’re not gonna let up and they should not.
Sen. Harris’s statement came after a dozen people had been killed and billions of dollars’ worth of property had been wrecked in the Antifa-BLM riots. George Floyd/systemic racism/white supremacy were the causes. But the rallies in D.C.– the accountants, housewives, vets in the Capitol?
They are “insurrectionists” and “domestic terrorists”, as are the senators who supported a full inquiry into the flawed 2020 election.
