Kamala Chameleon Tells Kwanzaa Tales
Kamala Chameleon Tells Kwanzaa Tales
What won’t this woman lie about? When it comes to Kamala Harris, the answer is likely “nothing.”
Kamala Harris will do anything, say anything, and giggle about anything to get ahead. She’s already proven her flip-flop bona fides are on par with John Kerry. Her laugh is just as cringe-inducing (and stalling for time) as Hillary Clinton’s. And we know she would call her own running mate a racist, then backtrack on that, just to make sure she won the intersectional lottery to become vice-president.
Now, only days after gushingly talking about how much she LOVES Hanukkah with her husband – which made many people wince at just how painfully inaccurate the story Kamala was retelling was…
This video could not possibly misrepresent Chanukah more egregiously.
Chanukah is not about “tikkun olam” or universalist notions of “fighting for justice.” The Chanukah story is one of Jewish particularism, traditionalism, and nationality repelling the forces of secularism. https://t.co/kxS83kFRrU

… now we are being treated to Kamala Harris’s childhood memories of Kwanzaa. No joke.
This is even more cringe-inducing than her Hanukkah story, or Barack Obama’s Kwanzaa message from years past. Kamala Harris is half-Indian (her mother emigrated from India to attend Berkeley) and half-Jamaican (her father came to the United States from Jamaica to go to Berkeley) and spent her teenage years living with her mother and sister in Canada. Kamala’s parents divorced when she was seven, and her father openly admits that he did not have custody – which is why Kamala’s mother was able to move to Canada with her daughters. Kamala Harris graduated from high school in Montreal, where I’m sure her Hindu mother was very invested in celebrating Kwanzaa and sitting down with “the elders” to “discuss the seven principals” every single year.
Grandma and great-grandpa celebrated Kwanzaa for many generations before it was invented in 1966 and you were two. #HowDoYouDoFellowKwanzans

I believe the phrase “pictures or it didn’t happen” was specifically created for a moment like this. While her parents may have been involved in the college movement to make Kwanzaa A Thing, the general consensus is that no one is buying Kamala Harris’s Kwanzaa cred AT ALL, including people actually from Africa who are finding themselves highly amused by Kwanzaa itself.
So, shall we see if Kamala Harris can produce an old picture of her family celebrating Kwanzaa? I’m sure we’re all waiting with bated breath for that one. And let’s remember, again, that the African American community is not completely sanguine about Kamala being one of them.
The democrats are trying to push the "Black ppl should vote for Kamala Harris because she is a fellow sista girl from an HBCU" narrative….

She’s Indian! She’s Asian! She’s Jamaican! She’s black! She’s a woman! Woooooo, she is EVERYTHING!
Which is exactly why Biden picked her. She has zero other qualifications than her intersectionality. And she is just waiting in the wings for Grandpa Joe to keel over so she can be president – a position that she could never have been elected to on her own, but Kamala Harris has never been shy about using men to get more power for herself.
And now she’s using Kwanzaa to boost her own chameleon-like image. What a joke.
