Oh, Hai, Conservatives.
I think I speak for the majority of Americans (and this election will bear that out, I pray) that we are sick of your racist shiat.

His argument was fleshed out further by Mark Levin - a conservative legal pundit - speaking just hours after the pick was named. "Kamala Harris is not an African American," he told viewers on his show for the conservative site the Blaze. "She is Indian and Jamaican. Jamaica is in the Caribbean. "India is" - he paused - "out there near China."

Does he not know that African slaves were brought to Jamaica?

According to this, Old Faithful did not erupt on time the other day (8h 1m). I recall a Park Ranger telling me if the interval is that long... run. Seems more likely someone forgot to enter the eruption times for overnight.

I think that these "pundits" believe that by proudly proclaiming her ethnic identity, Harris is inviting commentary and debate about it. They should reconsider their lives and their morals and keep their mouths shut and stop derping up the Internet with their stupid beliefs.

Her track record would be fine for any Republican, in an Obama type of way. Any problem they have with her is her gender or the color of her skin (or both).

It must be exhausting too constantly be saying racist shiat out of one side of your mouth, while also constantly acting offended and swearing how you're not racist out the other side. That would have to get exhausting after awhile.

A paragraph later: "Her ancestry does not go back to American slavery. To the best of my knowledge, her ancestry doesn't go back to slavery at all."


I'm guessing he thinks people of African ancestry are native to Jamaica.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: They're also taking shots at her white slaveowner heritage too.


They seem to do this, "flood the zone with shiat" as Steve Bannon's liverspots command, and then see what sticks.

And this is where all the "savvy fiscal conservatives" who claim not to be racists participate gleefully in racism because everything is all an abstract game to them where there are only winners and losers.  Tricking the adult-babies into voting against their own interests with ooga booga noises.

If you're a supposed conservative, and you don't identify as a racist, but you also sit silently by while these Nazis goose step all over your ideology.. you're also a racist.  Just a lot more cowardly about it than the average.
 
2020-08-14 2:18:11 PM  
While these people are as deplorable as they come and we're all sharing a country with them for the foreseeable future, I'm choosing to look at the silver lining.  Last time Trump ran a birther campaign against a black nominee, African American turnout set records and buried the Republican candidate.

That doesn't solve the long-term problem of the way a full third of this country consists of human garbage, but the more these idiots scream now, the worse November is going to be for them.

Yeah the native Caribe Indians were long gone by that point, so if your skin had color to it you were from Africa.


But even that's not important.   Kamala Harris was born in THIS country. She had dark skin.   Do you think racist and violent cops look at her and said "OH you're Caribbean/Indian, not Black, you can go about your business"
