Kamala Harris keeps getting media attention and is being touted as a high contender for the Democratic party. Her policies are all weird and controversial, and some even hypocritical. For someone praised so highly in the media, she sure looked stupid last night against Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, someone so low on the totem pole.
Gabbard started off,
“Senator Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president. But I’m deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence — she blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California.”
During the debate, Gabbard had gone against Kamala Harris heavy-handed stance on criminal justice issues. She is infamously known as ‘Kamala the cop,’ for her policies and relentless ambition. In fact, when the state of California was ordered to release non-violent offenders in overcrowded prisons, Kamala Harris, the Attorney General at the time, made the case that they needed to keep some non-violent offenders or else they would lose a cheap source of labor.
Gabbard also knocked down Kamala Harris over the fact that she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations but admitted to having smoking marijuana in the past herself.
What’s interesting is Gabbard’s brutal takedown of Kamala Harris might have been what attributed to her going from around 1% heading into the debate to being the most Googled candidate after the debate.
