Vice President Harris spreads pro-abortion hysteria across the country in speech after speech

Regardless of which poll you read, pro-abortion Vice President Kamala Harris’s popularity—36% or 37%–is even lower than equally pro-abortion President Joe Biden. As a recent USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll concluded, “she continues to struggle winning over Americans outside of the Democratic tent.” Clearly this is the case as the same poll found, according to J.T. Young, “Harris’ approval rating is just 28% among independent voters and 4% among Republicans.”

So her major job assignment is to go from one state to another whipping up as much hysteria as she can over abortion. Needless to say, at the top of the talking points is “I Worry About Fundamental Freedoms” if former President Trump is re-elected.

Of course, the New York Times and other legacy media offer to serve as a megaphone, as the Times’s Lisa Lerer did yesterday. Who is Lisa Lerer? Lisa Lerer “writes about the politics of abortion and is an author of a forthcoming book about the fall of Roe v. Wade.”

Clearly, we can agree she is an unbiased reporter, right?

Lerer tells us that “In an interview with The Times, Vice President Kamala Harris deepened her criticism of the conservative justices who overturned Roe and singled out Clarence Thomas’s views on other settled cases.”

“This court has shown itself to be an activist court,” said Ms. Harris, who previously served as California’s attorney general and as the district attorney of San Francisco. “I worry about fundamental freedoms across the board.”

 

Asked what specific legal precedents could be undone by the court, Ms. Harris demurred, saying she was “hesitant” to do so.

 

“I don’t want to, at this point, use my voice in a way that is alarmist,” she said. “But this court has made it very clear that they are willing to undo recognized rights.”

Lerer egged Harris on, asking a series of inflammatory questions.

Asked about the presidential race, she said Mr. Trump doesn’t trust women to make their own decisions, but she refused to say whether the former president respects women in any capacity.

Lerer obviously is a big fan. She writes

During her time as a senator from California, Ms. Harris opposed the confirmation of Justices Amy Coney BarrettBrett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Her combative and direct questioning of Mr. Kavanaugh during his contentious confirmation hearings in 2018 helped lift Ms. Harris into the national political spotlight.

Without rehashing the awful Justice Kavanaugh hearings in which no stone was left unthrown, no mud unslung, we can say that it was not the Democrats’ finest hour, and surely not Harris’s.

Lerer went even further in trying to get Harris to bash the Court:

Ms. Harris declined to say whether she believed any of the justices had lied during their hearings, when they were asked if Roe was an established legal precedent.

Lehrer ends her in-kind contribution to the Biden-Harris campaign with this gem:

Later that evening, she returned to Washington to deliver remarks at the annual gala of Emily’s List, the organization that supports Democrats who back abortion rights. [Note. Only female Democrats who support unlimited abortion.]

 

In her interview, Ms. Harris said “more work has to be done” to persuade voters to re-elect the Biden-Harris ticket, even on the issue of abortion rights.

 

“It’s an election for president of the United States — by its very nature, it requires a hard-fought campaign and a hard-won victory,” she said. “No one should be handed the presidency, right?”

Well, I’m guessing that means more of the same.
