The Democrats’ Great Intersectional Black-Asian Female Hope finally fizzled out this week. As it turns out, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-KGB) was a horrible candidate, and not just because she used her authority as California attorney general to prosecute pro-life activists at Planned Parenthood’s behest. Also, running her campaign into the dirt didn’t help.
All the same, the familiar chorus of voices has shouted “Racism!” and “Sexism!” over Kamala’s sad demise, so it’s worth explaining the real reasons her presidential bid fizzled.
First, Kamala Harris constantly touted her history as a prosecutor, but she also wanted to appear hip and court Black Lives Matter. The thing is, Harris was a “law and order” candidate in California, and that doesn’t play very well with pro-pot criminal justice reform advocates.
