How can this be said gently, without cries of racism, sexism, Harris-ism? Vice President Harris gave a speech on January 22, presumably to honor Martin Luther King but “on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.” In the speech, she disgraced America – then proudly walked off stage.
Just when you think it cannot get worse, a vice president – in an unintentional display of ignorance and audacity – decides to dishonor the text of the Declaration of Independence, America’s historic roots in faith, Dr. Martin Luther King, and the Supreme Court.
Said the esteemed second-in-command, vice president dubbed “president” by the President: “So we are here together because we collectively believe and know America is a promise…A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Be clear. These rights were not bestowed upon us. They belong to us as Americans.”
Now, whoa, wait a moment, hold those braying horses!
First, the Declaration of Independence is not just any document, but the nation’s founding declaration of intent – to become a nation. Being accurate about its contents seems mandatory for kids, parents, teachers and preachers, those patriotic and hesitant, especially – a vice president.
The text reads: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Let us start from the beginning as the song says, “a very good place to start…When you read, you begin with A, B, C…” That means, you do not start “…B, C.” Why did Harris omit “Life?”
Rather obviously, because she was speaking in favor of abortion, the decision to end a “life” – the opposite of Jefferson’s sentiment, which was all about protecting “life.” Speaking the word “life” in her pro-abortion venue was what her predecessor Al Gore might call “an inconvenient truth.”
Inconvenient indeed! The word “life” was the first of Jefferson’s high values for which independence itself was declared, not even the second or third, not the B or C – but the A.
Apparently the courageous vice president felt that causing people to think for a moment about when “life” begins by merely mentioning “life” was too inconvenient – so she omitted it. That was offense “Number One” to America’s intellectual honesty, integrity, and historic accuracy.
Next, the Vice President omitted from her quote the words “…that they are endowed by their Creator…” Was that phrase so hard to say out loud? Is the Vice President ashamed of her Creator? Our Creator? The Creator to whom Jefferson and all who signed the Declaration gave thanks?
Is she ashamed that our Founding Fathers – and Founding Mothers – all cared so deeply about giving thanks to our Creator, crediting our rights not to a King or Government but to God, that they put Him in the Declaration?
Does she think rights are created by government, so can be taken away by government? Was this another intentional fuzzing of truth? Denial of truth, attempt to re-write the Declaration, scrub God the way Marx and Lenin, atheists and secularists want to replace Him with government?
Was this a mere accident, or was this a two-for-two, second omission in one quote, neatly corroborating intent to omit the first key word, and vice versa? Just asking, not saying.
Then we get to offense “Number Three.” As Dr. Martin Luther King’s relatives have repeatedly discussed – especially in terms of opposing abortion – the civil rights leader was a pastor, a man of the cloth, who offered sermons on the meaning of faith, life, and love.
As his relatives have noted, he would never have supported abortion, did not support it, and also did not disavow white and black children living as equals, the American Dream, or “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” – words he actually used, quoted accurately from the Declaration, in his “I have a Dream Speech” on the Mall.
The dishonor is to MLK’s “I have a Dream Speech,” but also to him personally, to the day he is honored. To dishonor him by pushing the opposite of what he believed in the name of ending little lives, not defending them, is perhaps worse than a mix of ignorance and audacity. It is dishonesty.
To be clear, nothing – nothing – about MLK’s life, life mission, belief in life, sermons referencing children and how they should be honored in any way justifies using his name, words, and day to defend or promote abortion. To do so, frankly, is to disgrace his legacy of love – especially for the very young.
Finally, this former prosecutor – Vice President Harris – had the audacity to use this speech, this day, this twisted version of history to do what? To undermine respect for the Supreme Court.
Offense “Number Four” is her intentional disrespect for the US Supreme Court, for their 2022 Dobbs decision, which – if read closely – makes clear that Roe’s legal (not political) reasoning was fundamentally flawed, outcome-determinative, neither accurate nor intellectually sustainable.
So, we live in a time when a vice president can – in one fell swoop – dishonor the Nation’s founding document, identity as a People of Faith, Our Creator, Martin Luther King’s legacy of love for life, and rule of law as pronounced by the Supreme Court.
Bottom line: The bottom line is usually a “boom tick,” synthesis, meaning of the whole argument – and so, right here is where I should tell you what all this means. But you have life, liberty, and the ability to think – so I will not. I shall leave it to you. Some things just strike me as, well, disgraceful.

Baby Killing God Denying Democrat.
She is a GODLESS, incompetent idiot and should be fired.
Our so-called VP Harris will have a lot to answer for when her time finally comes. I dread what is in store for her and her ilk.
She’s a moron! Can’t get rid of her until the next election. Ignore her unless you just wanna good laugh.
Yes, she is an idiot. Can’t we impeach both of the idiots in the White House at one time??
He Haw, He Haw, Ha Ha Ha He He He I just love space and school buses.
Is there anyway to remove jackass harris (or democrat, same thing) before she destroys our country to the point it’s not repairable?
There is. But I’m not allowed to say it.
Too late! The USA as presently constituted is beyond repair. WAKE UP!
What a disgrace…..
God forbid she ever becomes president!
When it gets over DC, shoot the Chinese balloon down hoping the debris lands on her… two dinguses with one stone!
Nancy offered Kamala her OLD CORNER BACK in the TENDERLOIN! She would definitely make MORE MONEY? Can’t believe she TURNED IT DOWN!!
Worthless knee pad wearing , slut Harris is nothing but a DISGRACE !!!! All the brainwashed liptard puppets that put her were she’s at , should have their lips slapped off their face !!!!!!!
You get what you vote for!!!! What did you think you were getting? You knew brandon was a total worthless retard, did you think it was going to pick someone less worthless as a running mate? C’mon man!!!!!!
Moist commenting here did NOT vote for this incompetent, traderious, A-hole.
You are preaching to the choir.
We did NOT vote for either of the idiots in the White House. It’s called ‘FRAUD’ and the demonrats are very good at it. That is how the jackass in CA got re-elected….and also how he got thru the recall, etc.
Harris didn’t write this speech, Progressive writer’s did. Harris went along with these Progressive deceits in this speech because Harris is a Progressive who wants to completely change what the U.S. was designed to be. Liberals believe.
I think her display of ignorance was not unintentional. I doubt she writes her own speeches, and probably didn’t read it for meaning. Whoever wrote it was intentional.
I think that is true for Joe Biden. Perhaps it’s true with Harris .. BUT SHE still utters those imbecilic words and thoughts and she does that cackling
Of course it was intentional of her. No respectiable speech writer would come up with the dribble she espousesin the manor she presents it.
This administration’s “speech writers” are working for the leftist party because they are leftists themselves. They are not necessarily adept at the profession of speech writing, they just believe in the same evil ideology.
I wouldn’t let her off the hook so easily. I guess if someone wrote and she read the USA is now a communist country with no rights for the citizens. You would excuse her of that.
VP Harris is an absolute catstrophe for the nation and an embarrassment to her gender and her race. Of course the Joe Biden and democrats/their media allies think she’s great .. but the only think great about her is she is the GREATEST mistake we have had in the White House.
Obama as our first black president did nothing to unify the nation or reeduce whatever systemic racism exists. In fact we became furtehr divided and MORE racist – blacks openly hating and physically attacking all races, even their own. Obama’s legacy already shows us what failure he was. And VP Harris cannot utter one sentence without cackling or create one thoughtful sentence without clamouring about racism and her hatred of whites and conservatives. Harris is a hater …. NOT a national leader…..What does that show us? Black people are not as able as white people leding this nation. And black women are are horrible VPs……..
You are right concerning Obama and Harris. But you are totally wrong about black Americans not being able to lead in America. Unfortunately some of what you’ve said sounds as racist as theirs.
Whoa! You lost me at those last two sentences, Sam. Look at Dr. Carson, Allen West, etc. then think again.
Those you mention, Mr. Hubble, are black republicans. The difference lies in the condition of one’s heart and soul not the color of one’s skin. This country and the world has two types of individuals, the godly and the ungodly. It’s not difficult to figure out who is who.
When are conservatives going to stop claiming that King, who was a Marxist at heart, was an archconservative, even the greatest conservative ever? There is much more to King than one sentence from his “I have a Dream Speech.” Since he was a proponent of affirmative action and preferential treatment for Blacks, he believed in judging people by the color of their skin.
“the Declaration of Independence is not just any document, but the nation’s founding declaration of intent – to become a nation. Being accurate about its contents seems mandatory” Charles is not being accurate. The Declaration was not a declaration of intent to become one nation; it was a declaration of intent to become 13 nations — as the treaty that granted independence so recognized.
Your point? Nothing you point out negates the fact that this woman is anti-American, anti-life, anti-freedom, anti-patriot, anti-God and is a down right ignoramus who has no right or business being anywhere near a position of power.
AMAC AT IT AGAIN. I did NOT already vote for this comment. Sunny, I agreed with what you stated. Your comment should have 15 plus, not 14.
It does now!
Charles was correct about her and incorrect about the Declaration of Independence,
And King also worked with Planned Parenthood,
And since the ’13 nations’ thing did not work out, the Founding Fathers went back to the drawing board and met at the Constitutional Convention to establish ONE nation.
Until Lincoln corrupted the Constitution that the founding fathers gave us, their Constitution treated the States as independent nations for most things except foreign relations.
This isn’t any surprise to anybody who has ever listened to this imbecile! . . . Like ALL Democrats, they can lie knowing that the mainstream media will NEVER call them out for lying!
She absolutely sucks the life out of a room.
Her opening statement as she ramps up says “promises liberty for all, not for some, but for ALL”…. what she doesn’t say is “except for unborn children.”
I can’t. Listening to her is worse than nails on a chalkboard. Idiot.
Stupidity on display
AMAC SAYS I ALREADY VOTED AGAIN. Rudy, I agree with your comment and it should say 8 plus, not 7.
She, just like Biden, is a disgrace to our country. She, and only she, is the reason I’m against impeaching Biden.
Perhaps she and the godfather JB can get a ride on their China Balloon.
But it’s not YELLOW.
You can not hold back from impeaching Biden just because of what we are left with. Impeaching biden, even if not completely sucessful, would bring his cabal to a halt. If successful, even with this idiot Camel Harris, we would have a lull in the lefts rush to extincion until the next election.
Think about it, MK. Would you want this POS to sit in the White House???!?!?!?
I’M REALLY GETTING PO’D WITH AMAC. I did NOT already vote on this comment. It should read 14 plus, not 13.
Happens frequently, Sara , makes me think they use the same algorithms as “Facebook.”
They also changed the spelling in my last post. Apparently Mr. Al Gorithm didn’t agree with the spelling of FAKE BOOK.
I must give thanks and credit to Brutus, who introduced us to the name, Mr. AlGorythm, last week in one of his posts. Thanks Brutus. You are brilliant.
