It's not enough that Kamala Harris is as unlikeable and unappealing as any candidate since that Clinton Woman, that almost immediately after Harris withdrew from the 2020 race accusations of misogyny and racism began to run rampant, and continues at a steady pace ever since. A quick spin around the interwebs will reveal dozens of articles, all lamenting the racism and misogyny that destroyed poor, innocent, Kamala Harris. Just this morning, The Hill treated us to the following:
Sen. Kamala Harris’s exit from the race on Tuesday underscored the degree to which candidates of color have struggled to gain traction in the Democratic primary. At the moment, it appears that the party’s nominee is likely to be one of four white people — former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), or South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg. And with Harris gone, the remaining six candidates who have qualified for the December debate are all white.
.......Democrats pride themselves on a racially diverse party, and the plight of candidates of color is raising new concerns about a primary calendar that gives significant weight to Iowa and New Hampshire."The modern Democrat Party is built upon the concept that there is endemic, systematic, racism in this country. We’re not talking about a few deranged skinheads, mind you. No, the Dems want you to believe that hatred permeates virtually everyone and everything. They need that to be the popular narrative, and that message has emerged as their party’s defining characteristic.
Once upon a time, the Democrats positioned themselves as the party of the everyman – the working-class Joe who just wanted a better deal. Those days are long gone. Now, they’re the party of socialism, massive and oppressive taxation, transgender bathrooms, and fascist control of healthcare, guns, speech, and private property rights.
To be extremely blunt: Harris wasn’t driven out by bigots and misogynists. Her career ended because she’s an awful person, with a horrific track record, a coastal lefty and a terrible candidate. Kamala's positions are the positions of the modern Democratic Party, and they are being rejected. Since they can’t allow that to be the case, they have to find another excuse. Even if it targets members of their own party, “racism and misogyny” is the charge upon which they’ve settled. It lets the bad ideas off the hook, while it simultaneously serves to keep “their” minorities in line.
