The media has done an excellent job of portraying Sen. Kamala Harris as such a moderate, safe choice for Joe Biden that some on the far left are irritated at the nominee for picking someone from the center of the Democratic Party. But while it’s true that some progressives are concerned about Harris’s tough-on-crime history as a prosecutor, they certainly needn’t be worried about her record as a politician. As Mark Levin pointed out on his Fox News show on Sunday, Harris is perhaps the most liberal senator on Capitol Hill.
“She is farther left than 97% of the Democrats in the United States Senate. She is left of avowed Marxist Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders. She’s not moderate. She’s not a pragmatist like The New York Times would have you believe,” Levin said.
The conservative legend said that voters should not be fooled by the media’s efforts to make Harris sound like a middle-of-the-road Democrat. Both in her voting and in her campaigning, he noted, she’s done everything she can to portray herself as a radical leftist.
“She rejects a physical wall on the Southern border,” he noted. “She compared the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service…to the Ku Klux Klan. She believes in government-run health care for illegal aliens. Imagine what that will do to health care. She believes in the elimination of private health care – that means one hundred and sixty million people would lose their health care.”
Levin pointed out that Harris has expressed support for the socialist Green New Deal, and he warned viewers that her ideas about environmentalism and the economy are about as far to the left side of the spectrum as you can get.
“She wants to eventually eliminate in short order coal, oil, natural gas, all fossil fuels and eliminate fracking,” he continued. “She wants to repeal the president’s tax cuts for the middle class. She wants to massively increase taxes on all Americans. She supports infanticide and even more, she believes you, the American taxpayer, regardless of your religion, regardless of your moral views, that you should pay for it.”
After reviewing Harris’s thoughts on the Second Amendment – she wants to ban “assault weapons” – and her support for packing the Supreme Court with progressive judges, Levin said that the California senator’s true politics were right out on the table for all to see.
“Does that sound like a pragmatic moderate to you, ladies and gentlemen?” he asked. “That sounds like the most extremist radical politician ever to run for high office in the United States of America. It is about as clear of an un-American, anticapitalist, anti-individual, anti-Constitution agenda as one has ever stated.”
Well, studies have shown that if Biden goes through with his promised agenda, he would instantly become the most liberal president in U.S. history. That he chose an even more radical running mate should tell you everything you need to know about what he has planned for this country.
