Proving that the Democrat Party is the vehicle by which the worst and most radical political impulses travel, Vice President Kamala Harris acknowledged and validated some serious anti-Israeli sentiment recently.
Talking to a young George Mason University student who expressed hatred for the state of Israel by pushing the narrative that the country is committing genocide against Palestinians, a gentle Kamala politely acknowledged that massive crock of fiction as that student’s personal “truth.”
You know, of the, “your truth, my truth, it’s all relative maaaaan,” variety? Yeah, if you want to say extreme falsehoods about the state of Israel, who are we to say they’re not true? That’s how you see it, and that’s important.
Kamala’s soft response for this anti-Israel screed happened during her visit to George Mason University on September 28 to promote National Voter Registration Day. During her time in a university classroom, Madame VP sought a conversation with students and encountered one “part Yemeni, part Iranian” girl who made it very clear that she is “not an American” and not happy that our country is continuing to aid Israel's defense expenses.
The young student told Kamala, “You brought up how the power of the people and demonstrations and organizing is very valuable in America. But I see that over the summer there have been protests and demonstrations in astronomical numbers standing with Palestine.” Apparently the student loves with the pro-Palestinian protests and expressed frustration that though she expected social and political change from these demonstrations, she sees the U.S. continuing to support Israel.
“But then just a few days ago, there were funds allocated to continue backing Israel, which hurts my heart because it’s ethnic genocide and displacement of people, the same that happened in America, and I’m sure you’re aware of this,” she added. (The state of education at GMU, ladies and gentlemen!)

Readers probably remember the controversy surrounding this funding, where members of The Squad, particularly Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) unsuccessfully tried to get fellow lawmakers to withdraw U.S. funds from upkeeping Israel’s Iron Dome rocket defense system.
AOC had been spotted on the House floor crying after congress voted to continue funding Israel's defense.
Despite the fact that Israel has every right to defend its country from Hamas and other Palestinian terrorists, Kamala offered no pushback to the Yemeni student calling this “ethnic genocide.” She basically told her she’s right, if she feels that way.
In addition to telling the student she’s “glad” she spoke her mind, Kamala stated, “Your voice, your perspective, your experience, your truth cannot be suppressed, and it must be heard.”
“Your truth,” huh? What if that “truth” is patently wrong and serves a pernicious narrative?
Our Madame Vice President doesn’t have the stomach to correct the record for one of our most important allies. It’s U.S. policy to support Israel. Can’t Harris at least explain the rationale behind that our alliance to -- you know -- broaden the student’s horizons?
