Kamala Harris 'Birtherism' attacks



Rivals defend Kamala Harris against online attacks they compare to 'birtherism'

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/rivals-defend-kamala-harris-against-online-attacks-they-compare-to-birtherism/ar-AADCHQc

A number of hopefuls for the Democratic nomination for president found common ground Saturday as they defended rival Sen. Kamala Harris against online allegations that she is not an "American Black."

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who clashed with Harris at Thursday's Democratic debate in Miami after she criticized his position five decades ago against school busing, said the social media attacks against the senator from California were clear echoes of "birtherism."

"Birtherism," promoted by some Republicans, including Donald Trump before he assumed the presidency, was a movement that denied former President Barack Obama was a natural-born U.S. citizen, implying he was ineligible to be president.

Oh for goodness sakes. People are nuts.


I seen somebody comment on FB that the way she sniffs is because she's on coke and that she lies about being African American.


They are crazy.

According to that article it was an organized attack with a lot of people tweeting it at roughly the same time. This is going to be a looong campaign season.

Not unexpected....many, if not most, right wingers (especially Trump supporters) have deep. seated racial animus. Kamela Harris, like Barack Obama, is their worst nightmare- a Black person who has done better than rhem

Of course it was organized. The tweets were all by bots, which indicates it was Russian friends of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump.

Then Trump's son retweeted it and the operation was complete.

Was waiting on it. I'm sure her campaign saw these attacks coming from miles away. In fact, I believe I recall her saying in an interview weeks ago that if they did it to Barack Obama, she expected it to be done to her. She was right.

This is the stupidest shit I ever heard. She was born here so she is an American. Does this Ali person know anything about Jamaica's slave history? It was no different for the African salves brought there than the ones brought to America. Furthermore, many Africans sho were enslaved in this country before it was called America, were also transported to the Caribbean. So yes, she is a descendant of her father’s ancestral history in Jamaica.

She experienced racism as a child being a Brown woman, and one of Black Caribbean descent. I’m so tired of ignorant people thinking there was a difference in slavery in America and the Caribbean for Africans, in both places, who were forced into slavery. The only difference is they were dropped off at two different destinations and slavery ended earlier in the Caribbean than in America.

I get it that her parents divorced young, and she was raised by her mother, but I think some feel she is using her half-Jamaican identity to win over Black Americans’ votes. She has been boasting more of being raised by her mother, and giving more of her life’s success by being raised by her mom, and I have rarely heard her speak of her father with the same respect. She did joke that she smoked marijuana in her younger days, and attributed that to a stereotype reason of being half-Jamaican, which her father was very angry that she disrespected and associated that with being with half-Jamaican.

I’m just not impressed by her at this point.
As an American you have a right to question/call your country out on its wrongs/injustices. That doesn’t make you un-American nor does anyone have a right to tell you to leave, because you have the courage to stand up against any injustice in this count

Trump is their role model. These kind of attacks will continue. Expect full on trolling of every kind on any of Trump's opps. Divide & Conquer by who's "American" or not is an old tactic. Obama was African, Harris is Jamaican yada yada yada - not real Americans.

I don’t know if we should be entertaining this silliness. Turd Jr. “retweeted” this, with the caveat of deniability and not being responsible for the “content”.
It was a calculated move he took in that he believed that reposting this was worth it in getting CNN and the rest of “mainstream” media to blast it across the nation and you all with wet parties. it worked.

It’s about time we understood how this works. As I’ve said many times, I blame CNN and other mainstream media for Turd as they stoped the presses for every little thing Turd said and done, clinging to his every word, devoting massive coverage on him in the run-up to the Republican primaries sucking up all the air in the room and in the process leaving everyone else without a voice and only responding to what they thought about Turd.

Persistent Turd is the shit.

it is just as bad to allow a person's identity to influence level of support however slight. anyone that uses that as a reason HOWEVER SLIGHT should expect to have that questioned.

What a role model rolleyes . But you're right. They're going to follow his lead. In most republicans minds, if it worked for trump in '16, it will work for us in '20.

Exactly, yet trump married 2 immigrants, and he’s a descendant of German grandparents. I don’t think this will fly as much as it did with Obama. I think it will just backfire on him as desperation to be the-elected. Like you guys stated, his repub supporters will just try to follow trump’s bs on this. Harris was born in this country, so his dirty tactics won’t sway her voters.
