Abolish ICE is old and busted. Comparing ICE to the KKK is the new hotness. At least if this video with future Democrat presidential candidate Kamala Harris is any indication (see Sen. Kamala Harris: Trumps SCOTUS Pick will DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION and Kamala Harris Cries About Children Dying in Gun Violence. She’s Pro-Abortion.). Harris grilled Ronald Vitiello, Trump’s nominee to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement (transcript from the Free Beacon). That’s when she gave us the new Democrat talking point:
VITIELLO: The Klan was what we could call today a domestic terrorist group.
VITIELLO: Because they tried to use fear and force to change the political environment.
HARRIS: And what was the motivation for the use of fear and force?
VITIELLO: Based on race and ethnicity.
Stevie Wonder can see where this is going.
HARRIS: And are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the law and do you see any parallels?
VITIELLO: I do not see any parallels. There’s a lot of perceptions in the media and in the public that are incorrect about the agency.
In case you had any naive assumption 2020 was going to give us a more rational debate: not so much.
Kamala Harris is really the perfect candidate for Democrats. In 2008, the DNC minions claimed any criticism of Obama was racist. Hillary let them call all dissent sexist in 2012. With Harris, anytime you disagree with her you’ll be both racist AND sexist. A double whammy. So she can get away with saying all sorts of crazy s***.
Like comparing a government agency whose job it is to enforce our immigration laws to the Klu Klux Klan. To be clear, the KKK burned crosses and hung black Americans for the “sin” of being black. ICE arrests and deports people who are in the country illegally. While probably giving those immigrants at least a four star treatment as they make their merry way back to their homeland.
One of these things is not like the other.
Rest up for the holidays, Crowderheads. It’s going to be a long two years.
