Democrat Regime “Whitesplains” to Blacks in Harlem

 

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?

Can Jill Biden help move the needle on vaccination rates?

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!

    I have no idea what kind of ‘splaining this is, but it’s definitely condescending.

    That is the same shell game, scam election game that the RepubliCANT/Democrat/Murkowski cabal just foisted on Alaska, for the one time purpose of shoehorning her back into her family Senate seat for one more term in 2022. It will take a great deal of discipline and clear communication, even if it takes a pizza pie chart, to help Alaskans mark their ballots in just the way that will hurt Murkowski. Under no circumstances can you mark down Murkowski or any leftist as any ranking at all on such a ballot. Otherwise, your lower ranking gets rolled upward and the candidate a majority or plurality actually does NOT want sneaks in by the deliberately designed complex rules.

    Serious black organizations, like black churches, are a good place to increase vaccination, partly because you hit comorbidities really efficiently. The thing is, I can’t stand it when they aren’t careful and respectful about trying to get political credit for this type of thing.

    Harris strikes me as very, very lazy when it comes to learning about policy. When you move into a political executive position after being a legislator, it’s a lot harder to get away with that. 

    I think part of it is, she had at least two executive positions like that and never got called on it for whatever reason. The Minneapolis mayor is like that, and he is getting destroyed as much as one could with such a biased media in this state.

    Well, that’s certainly going to make blacks want to come in and get vaccinated . . . not!

    I am of the opinion she is lazy about everything.

    Even people who agree with Ms. Harris on policy when she was Attorney General of California have said she was a terrible “leader” who couldn’t get anything done. Very deficient on administrative capabilities.

    The left has long acted as though “people of color” (especially black people) are incapable of accomplishment without a white savior to guide them. They can’t figure out how to get drivers’ licenses to use as voter ID. They can’t fight out how to apply for a job. They can’t find lawyers and accountants to help them start businesses.

    In the case of so-called “vaccine hesitancy” among black Americans, I understand at least some stems from past episodes of race-based medical testing decades ago. In which case sending white long-time holders of political power seems unlikely to dislodge such history- based vaccine hesitancy.

    Hate to “this” post. But yeah, “this.” It’s the sheepskin effect. You learn to get good at finding where the herd is going and acting like you were there all along. Very different skill than leading the herd, and perhaps antithetical. Also, she is just so incredibly phony and insincere that it makes me (and probably all of you as well) cringe. AOC? We are looking at a true believer. Harris? This is why people (unfairly) don’t like used car salesmen.

    I can’t stand the way the progressives/liberals/the left does this about blacks. It’s insane and really dehumanizing.  Put the race aspect aside– imagine a party that belittles its strongest voters. Just off the cuff you’d want to not infantilize a solid voting block, but dems do. I think though, it’s fair to say that many of the thought makers in the black community prey and make money on white guilt. This doesn’t happen in a vacuum.

    Vaccines: stats on this are weird and subject to slicing. Blacks are lagging whites for a variety of reasons, including the Tuskegee flavor (even if knowledge of the specific event is lacking). But it is also true, as I remember, that Republicans are still, on average, less likely to report wanting to get vaccines compared to democrats and blacks. Partisanship is a heck of a (anti) drug. It’s Trump’s vaccine! Biden is just doing what Trump planned on doing. This is why partisanship can be so toxic. This is Trump’s final victory but his strong supporters are, at least on surveys, turning away from it. It’s wild.

    The reason magazine article about her was really bad. Between that and the insurance job she had, you would think she would just hunker down at Senator. She must have a massive case of NPD. She’s going to be terrible as POTUS. James Carafano was really interesting on SebGorka yesterday about who is really running the country. Free podcast.

     Kamala Harris is Biden’s insurance policy to make sure nothing bad happens to him. Not sure if that’s what he thought he was buying, but that’s what he got.
