Thank You Kamala!

Kamala Harris is an idiot. This statement needs no elucidation. It verges on self-evident truth.

The most recent illustration:

Note Kamala’s characteristic redundancy and circularity.

But I have to extend my deepest thanks to Kamala. Before reading that, I didn’t know that my failed NBA dreams were the result of hidden structures of oppression. For if we all have the same capacity, I have the same capacity as, say, Michael Jordan. Meaning that systemic oppression has to be–has to be!–the only reason I am not the GOAT.

My only question no is: whom do I sue?

Sarcasm aside, I am genuinely grateful to Kamala because she said the quiet part out loud, and revealed the premise underlying the entire equity agenda. Namely, that “everyone has the same capacity.”

This is a self-evident untruth. Thus, the equity agenda is built on a lie, and all its assertions and conclusions are therefore false. Kamala has generously put the laser designator on the target that we need to destroy in order to eliminate this pernicious doctrine.

Most philosophies and social theories are built on beliefs about human nature. Arguments over Locke and Hobbes, for example, depend crucially on their contrasting assumptions about human nature. You may disagree with the human nature foundations of this philosophy or theory or that, but usually there is at least a kernel of truth and insight in those that have achieved wide acceptance and which have endured.

But that’s not the case with equity, as revealed by Kamala Harris. It is built on an obviously false model of humanity.

Most clever leftists who advocate the equity agenda obfuscate and obscure the underlying assumption. Kamala is a leftist, but a dim one, so she let the cat out of the bag. And for that we can all extend our hearty thanks.

  1. VDH said Kamala Harris is the first VP with a 500-word vocabulary.

  2. “the equity agenda is built on a lie, and all its assertions and conclusions are therefore false.”

    That doesn’t follow. 2 + 2 = 5 is a lie but you can use it to prove that 5 > 1, which is true.

    If the Dems wanted a woman with a dark skin why on earth didn’t they choose Tulsi Gabbard? Or do they have a rule that no dark-skinned woman must ever be chosen who might have got the job on merit anyway?

  3. Unfortunately one of those 500 words is not tautology.

  4. Dearieme – no that’s not how it works. If your hypothesis or theorem or attempted proof is based on a falsehood obviously the thing doesn’t stand up.

    Kamala is a cringingly bad speaker. She has to be the least charismatic VP ever as well as the most stupid.

  5. Now, how do you call somebody, who builds his argumentation on a quote he takes as evidence to call the quoted person an idiot? Streetwise? C’mon…

  6. I’m sorry to hear that because of systemic something you are not the GOAT, prof.
    Have you tried transitioning? I hear it’s quite the thing nowadays.

    More seriously, as someone who tries to see the best in people (I pretend to be a nice guy on internet forums) I prefer to think of our rulers as stupid rather than evil.
    Trouble is, if they were simply evil they would likely do less harm, out of a sense of self preservation.

  7. Remember the kid in class that had to give an oral book report without reading the book? That’s Harris.
