Make them own it. The Democratic Party, in the administrative state, the Congress, and the White House, is all in on Critical Race Theory and acknowledging white privilege as part of “anti-racism.” So, how is it that the Senate, White House, and administrative state, medical wing, sent two white women and an old white man to whitesplain experimental, emergency authorization vaccinations to Black people in Harlem?
When Monique Harouna, 51, showed up at a vaccination center in the historic Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York’s most famous predominantly Black neighborhood, on Sunday, she knew there was a to-do going on. The Secret Service was outside doing security searches, plus dozens of cameras were crowded around, with an Eyewitness News 7 van parked outside. Yet, it was still a surprise when first lady Jill Biden, accompanied by infectious-disease expert Anthony S. Fauci and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), walked over to shake her hand.
“Hi, I’m Jill,” said Biden, as Harouna did a double take.
“They told us Michelle Obama was coming,” Harouna said later, in an interview. “That’s what I heard. So, she’s not coming?”
Why is Kamala Harris not the face of the Biden Administration for public health in “communities of color?” She is for the Democrats’ immigration agenda, where she is “failing” perfectly, drawing fire on style, diverting the right and center from the ongoing success of carrying out the left’s announced agenda. The New York Post called Harris “clueless,” but things are working out just as the left desires on our southern border.
When Biden announced he was appointing the veep as his immigration czar, he was effectively passing her a grenade whose pin he had already pulled. When Harris went to Guatemala, that country’s president flat-out blamed Biden’s policies for the surge north. He said the United States’ “message changed to, ‘We are going to reunite families and we are going to reunite children’ … The very next day the coyotes here were organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.”
“Do not come,” Harris said in Guatemala, addressing potential illegal immigrants thinking about entering the US. “We will discourage illegal migration. The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border. … If you come to our border, you will be turned back.”
That’s not what Central Americans are hearing from their friends who are now comfortably ensconced in the US. Nearly half of those who show up at the border seeking asylum are being welcomed into the States, given orders to appear in court, and then set free. Biden and Harris haven’t just placed a Welcome mat on the border, they’ve announced to the world that we’re suckers.
Personnel are policy. Apparently, the left really cares about a massive addition of brown-skinned immigrants from dysfunctional countries, whose people show preferences aligned with the Democrat Party platform. The leftist-controlled White House has just shown that it believes elite White people need to explain immunizations to urban Black people. Why, exactly, are they still letting some white guy to continue his 50 years of exercising privilege, blocking Black, Indigenous, and People of Color from advancing to the top of a federal medical science agency? That’s racist!
