(Tea Party PAC) – The Democrats will lionize anyone they think they can use to score political points with their radical base.
They don’t even lose a wink of sleep over any blatant hypocrisy or double-standards they may apply in the process.
If Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), vice-presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, didn’t have double-standards, however, she’d have none at all.
This woman, who openly claimed she believed Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford when it was politically advantageous to do so, told accused sex offender Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she was “proud of him.”
Why? Because Blake was shot seven times by police officers while reportedly trying to reach for a weapon after the officers responded to a domestic dispute in which Blake refused to give his accuser her keys back.
Apparently, being shot by police officers absolves a man of all his alleged crimes, in Harris’ eyes.
Blake Jr. spoke publicly for the first time on Saturday night, releasing a video from his hospital bed in which he spoke about pain from his injuries, adding: “Please, I’m telling you, change your lives out there.” He also appeared in court via video on Friday, pleading not guilty to the pending charges against him, which are not related to the Aug. 23 shooting.
Local NBC affiliate WTMJ-TV noted:
According to a criminal complaint filed in July, Blake is accused of sexually assaulting a woman back in May. The woman told police that Blake also took her car keys and a debit card from her before fleeing. Blake was also charged with disorderly conduct – domestic abuse and criminal trespass – domestic abuse.
Harris visited the Blake family during a visit to Milwaukee, and spoke to Blake Jr. on the phone.
In a statement, Blake’s lawyer called Harris’s meeting with the family “inspirational and uplifting.” He noted: “In a moving moment, Jacob J. told Sen. Harris that he was proud of her, and the senator told Jacob that she was also proud of him and how he is working through his pain … Sen. Harris also discussed the policy changes that she and Vice President Biden will seek.”

Harris’ running mate, Joe Biden, visited Kenosha last week where he also met with the Blake family, including Jacob Blake Sr.
This was in spite of the elder Blake’s long history of racism, antisemitism, and anti-Christian language on social media and his son’s accused sex crimes.
Biden called for the police officer to shot Blake, Rusten Sheskey, to be criminally charged.
The week prior, Biden had blamed the police, whose actions he declared were “systemic racism.”
It took him two days to condemn the ongoing riots in Kenosha, which had destroyed the city by then.
