• I’m Sorry, What? Harris Preaches Marxism Days Before Election …

    Surge Summary: Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris released a video Sunday promoting a favorite socialist idea. Even some fellow liberals were bewildered. Is this what Americans want promoted in their nation?

    by Gary Bauer

    Sen. Kamala Harris released a video [Sunday] attempting to explain the difference between equality of opportunity, which virtually everyone supports, and “equity,” one of the left’s favorite buzzwords.

    It’s not enough to believe in equality of opportunity.  The left is now demanding equity or equality of results.  Or as Sen. Harris put it, “Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place.”

    This open embrace of Marxism on the verge of the election stunned many observers, including some well-known liberals.  Progressive columnist Andrew Sullivan tweeted:

    “Why would a vice presidential candidate seemingly endorse full-on Marxism days before a general election? Does she believe government should enforce equality of outcome for everyone? Seriously?  ‘Equitable treatment means we all end up in the same place.’ That’s equality of *outcomes* enforced by the government. They used to call that communism.”

    President Trump ended his campaign swing [Sunday] in Miami, Florida.  Senator Marco Rubio addressed the largely Hispanic audience, many of whom had fled oppressive regimes in Cuba or Venezuela.  Rubio said this:

    “People get on rafts to get away from socialism. People risk being eaten by sharks to get away from socialism. People leave behind their homes, their families, their loved ones, their entire lives, to get away from socialism. We are not going to bring to this country the things that people flee!

    “Now, I know what they’re gonna say. ‘Not all Democrats are socialists.’ And it’s true: not all Democrats are socialists.  But all socialists are Democrats!”
