CNN's Fat Fascist Brian Stelter Shrieks About Anyone Questioning Kamala Harris' Suggestions of Being an African Descendant of Slaves;
Overlooks CNN NPC Don LeMon Having Asked the Same Question Repeatedly Just Five Months Ago

But that's different.

Leftists are allowed to explore all sorts of questions, such as "Is the American flag just a variation of the Nazi swastika?"

The debate is about whether Kamala Harris, being half Indian, half Jamaican, and having grown up mostly in Canada rather than America, is actually a representative for the "black experience" in America.

And Don LeMon and April Ryan were keenly interested in puzzling this out just five months ago. Don LeMon seemed pretty certain that she is not "black" -- black meaning "American descended from slaves" -- but instead is merely someone of (partial) African lineage.

A user had sent a tweet to Don Jr. mentioning Harris’ mixed lineage, and he responded with "Is this true? Wow,", in a now-deleted tweet response. CNN dutifully went to the Harris camp for comment. "This is the same type of racist attack his father used to attack Barack Obama," Lily Adams, communications director for the Harris campaign, told CNN.

Question, the for the CNN pundits: If Don Jr. responding, with curiosity, is considered an "attack" then how would you and the Harris campaign describe your co-worker Don Lemon actively questioning Kamala's racial integrity with a panel on his news program?! More than being taken aback by new information, Lemon actively argued that Harris was not "African American".

Lemon got into the deep dive into Kamala’s racial bonafides with April Ryan:

"To want the distinction to say ‘is she African-American’, or ‘is she Black’ or is she...whatever -- there is nothing wrong with that. There is a difference between being African-American and being Black."

Ryan then further muddied the waters with more muddled thinking.

"So she could indeed be African-American mixed with others, but she is a Black woman," she said.

"Jamaica is not America," Lemon said, interrupting her again. "Jamaica did not come out of Jim Crow. I'm just saying."

I think we just have to understand that the New Rules say that we are ourselves now under Jim Crow-style rules, and there are things that people of some races (and political leanings, of course) may say or do that we are forbidden to do.

44 Apparently APril Ryan has also commented on Kamala's non-African-American acestry.

The best part is how:

a. They've never contacted Ali Alexander for a comment or interview.

b. They have photoshopped his profile picture out of the tweet graphic so that their viewers are not informed that Ali Alexander is black, of both African-American and Arab descent.

*This is also why they choose to make it about Don Jr. retweeting Ali - to skirt around the fact that the person who started this is saying "Stop culturally appropriating my ancestry, Kamala!"

Thanks. I'll look it up. So many things about the continents development are extremely difficult to search for because apparently the algorithms are opposed to letting people learn about what actually happened in the past.

Sure, but this is Alinsky #4: Make the opponent live up to their own rules.

The Democrats/Left are all about racial and ethnic identity.

Kamal is appropriating another demographic's racial/ethnic identity to win votes. Worse, her defenders are telling African-Americans to shut up because black is black and we don't need to make distinctions here; black should vote for blacks, m'kay?

No. Their rules.
hey must be held to their rules.
That's the only way we eventually stop this nonsense, not by letting them off the hook when they snagged in their own traps.

There was a vast trading culture which existed for well over a millenia, possibly dating back as far as the late classical period (5th century) which connected Zanzibar, Arabia, and India. There were a number of independent trading cities on what was known as the Swahili Coast. Before 1498, when the Portuguese arrived, the Europeans knew nothing about it, but it appears to have been part of a vast and lucrative trading network.

Anyway, if I get some I guess I should go for maximum padding? But would that mean needing bigger shoes?

Posted by: VMom's phone at July 03, 2019 04:44 PM (qEL1d)

talk to a foot doctor would be my suggestion A good doc will likely be able to hook you up with orthodics if you need them and recommend a good shoe store that deals with people with foot issues. The only general recco I can give is that some people with foot pain think the softer the shoe the better, but in my experience, the support the shoe offers is the key thing. And as for socks, you want something that fits and doesn't cause friction. But that is just what has worked for me, I have no expertise in the subject.

Much of the Carribean ... which it's interesting to note would not be black run - or even have any blacks within 500 miles of them had it not been for slavery. Blacks benefited greatly from the slave trade. WIthout it, they would all still be in Africa, mostly starving and begging for help. The only way they were able to leave sub-saharan Africa was because people came and took them away.

Which is unbelievably stupid, since there's nothing wrong or even pejorative about the word "black". For that matter, there's nothing wrong with the word "Negro" either, which is just a version of "black" out of the romance language base. On the other hand, there are a whole lot of problems with the idiotic term "African american".

343 after checking I see Jamaica became a British colony in 1865, "and conditions improved considerably." They got independence from Britain in 1962.


Kamala's grandparents perhaps ran some slaves for molasses before 1865? ... it is kinda like Obama ... only neither parent was American (unless Obama's real dad is Frank Marshal Davis). Both jerks claim full victim credit of being raised in chains, basically, only based on skin color.


That is a special kind of racism ... taking skin color as exculpatory for past slave ownership (in their bloodline) while claiming all whites (that perhaps escaped their own victim status out of serfdom in Europe) all whiteys are hateful racists that owe them (of real slave owner heritage)

Supposedly the family separation policy enraged Central Americans so much that they rushed northward and attempted to cross the border illegally in protest. Trump ending catch and release then had the same effect.

It makes absolutely zero sense, but those are the policies that the left says are what caused this border problem.

Harris: Take one uppercrust Jamaican and one high-caste Brahmin Indian, place in American university and mix vigorously. Educate resulting baby in non-US cultural environments.

Neither one is 'African-American' in the traditional sense, and neither one was 'black' until it was educationally and politically advantageous.

If there are African descendents who have less than what people have thought to be an "authentic black American experience" then there are.

To say that black people are lazy or stupid IS a racist stereotype. Because those are negative attributes and attributed on the basis of race.

To say that somebody was born in Africa is NOT a racist stereotype, because there are many of the same race who were born in Africa. It's the idea that saying that somebody is born in Africa is an "attack" that makes it an insult.

Oddly, my Jewish side didn't suffer too much. Yeah - they had to live in the Pale, and it blew nuts, and they eventually left because of it, but not because of direct, violent persecution.

My Christian grandfather, on the other hand - holy shit. The Communists really worked a number on his family (as in, they killed them ALL), left him an orphan in Egypt, and then he had to grow up in the British Army, who kindly took him in as a boy. It didn't get much better from there, until he came here. Just a lot of war.

So, when they meet him and notice his skin color, he is so dumb he needs special help in school, but as soon as they hear from whence he came, he is smart enough to make it on his own.

440 Wikipedia states that Kamala Harris was born October 20, 1964 in Oakland CA.

Her mother emigrated from Madras India in 1960.

Her father emigrated from Jamaica in 1961.

Her family lived in Berkeley where both attended graduate school.

Neither parent had been in America five years at the time she was born, so neither could have been naturalized at the time of her birth.

She is an "anchor baby", the first person in her family to be American.

That seems to be a reason to be sensitive about "birther"issues.

There has been an expectation that children born in the United States for foreign parents are themselves "natural born" Americans. There can be arguments about that practice, but it is definitely precedented.

She was a DREAMER before the term was invented.

A good question to ask her would be "When you went back to Besant Nagar to visit relatives, did you meet Little Black Sambo?"

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at July 03, 2019 05:30 PM (bOCwl)

and really only one argument that she is - because current Constitutional law and practice says that she is.

There are only two types of citizens, those citizens who have citizenship from the moment of their birth, and those who obtain citizenship at some point after their birth.

The first class are called natural born citizens, the second class are are called naturalized citizens. If someone who is a citizen is not a naturalized citizen, then by definition, they are a natural born citizen.

There is no third class of citizens under the law, never has been, never will be. The idea that there is some group of people who have citizenship from birth and yet who somehow are not "natural born citizens" is an internet fantasy. The Law does not recognize such a distinction.

Interesting ... and you come to this conclusion about the Founders' use of "natural born citizen": when there was a type of citizenship that didn't exist for Americans under the Founders and that was dual/multi-nationality. Americans were not allowed to hold other nationalities (as is clearly evidenced to this very day by the oath of renunciation and allegiance that every naturalizing American must take).

Yes, there are different classes of citizenship today than there were when the Founders wrote "natural born citizen".

A child of foreign parents is not a "natural born citizen". Period.

True, this has never been addressed in a Constitutional amendment (the correct way) or in court but it's pretty clear that a natural born citizen was meant as someone who wouldn't have any even possibly competing interests of other allegiances.

It's well past time that this case goes throught he court system, at the very least. ANd, hell, the anti-"naturla born citizen" folks have nothing to lose. It's not as if these courts won't just make shit up and call eveyone on Earth a "natural born citizen of America". It wouldn't even be their worst decision.

This is because he came from a Hispanic family, and had inherited the business from his Mexican immigrant dad.

The funny part is, he was adopted - this was the whitest man you could possibly imagine. He doesn't know his background, but it's pretty obvious it's Nordic. He looks like Leif Erickson.

It's a real shame. Beautiful girl. But she gets to the semis of 3 majors in a row and then, first thing she does is fire the guy who coached her since she was 12 or something. Nasty.

And her suit against the WTA or whoever because she spazzed out and slipped in the locker room was pathetic. Her claim that she was on her way to win the US open was even more pathetic. I lost any last vestige of respect for her at that point.

Fortunately, we don't even get to that - since the whole thing, in very concept, is a pure and complete destruction of our most important principles, and incredibly odious and unconstitutional.


That any form of it survived *any* court challenge, at *any* level, was a small clue that our "judiciary" and "system" were/are hollow and mostly mythological.

613 Yes, there are different classes of citizenship today than there were when the Founders wrote "natural born citizen".

A child of foreign parents is not a "natural born citizen". Period.

Try and find one single court, at any level, in the US today that will back that view. You won't. None exist.

"Americans were not allowed to hold other nationalities"
But as of 1965, the Supreme Court has ruled that it's constitutionally protected for Citizens from birth to hold dual citizenship, and not even Congress can take that away. Different rules apply for naturalized citizens, of course.

To cut to the chase, "natural born citizen" is an orphaned phrase, left devoid of Constitutional meaning anymore. No Court respects it, no court will define it. That puts defining it into the territory of being an amusing internet game, and nothing else.

624 Kamala Harris is an attractive woman who is not the hated solely white. Therefore, she should be President.

625 If these jerks want to talk about "black slavery" and the "oppression of women," they need look no farther than 21st century AFRICA and the Middle East, where slavery, since the beginning of recorded and unrecorded time, has been a very vigorous business.

626 A whitey-hating nniggger is a whitey-hating nniggger is a whitey-hating nniggger. Harris is a whitey-hating nniggger. Does not matter if she is a mystery-meat mulattress street-shittter. She has nniggger blood in her.
