Kamala Harris Pushes Marxism Just Hours Before Election Day
Democrat VP candidate comes out as 'woke Marxist' as voters head to the polls
Democratic vice-presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has started promoting Marxist policies just hours away from Election Day.
The California Democrat has been slammed for coming out as a "woke Marxist" less than 48 hours before the election.
Joe Biden's running mate released an animated video on Sunday that pushes Communist talking points.
The animation explains away the difference between “equality” and “equity” and suggests that capitalism gives white people an unfair advantage over black people.
“Equality suggests, ‘Oh, everyone should get the same amount,’" Harris says in the voiceover of the video.
"The problem with that, not everybody’s starting out from the same place,” she adds.
“So if we’re all getting the same amount, but you started out back there, and I started out over here, we could get the same amount, but you’re still going to be that far back behind me,” Harris continues.
“It’s about giving people the resources and the support they need so that everyone can be on equal footing, and then compete on equal footing.
"Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place."
The video features an illustration of two individuals attempting to climb a mountain.
Each was given a rope, which a white man used to begin climbing.
The other man, who appeared to be black, was unable to reach the rope, as he stood several feet lower than the other man.

While Harris doesn’t explicitly endorse “equity” — she never endorses anything in the video, for that matter — the California senator’s parting words, in which everyone ends “up in the same place,” prompted critics to blast her for sounding like a communist.
“I try not to tweet on weekends but when the potential VP gets on here to announce she’s a Woke Marxist, I gotta say something,” tweeted Dave Rubin, who added that Americans should vote like the country depends on it.

Woke Marxism = Bad.
American Opportunity = Good.
Vote like America depends on it, because this time it does. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 https://t.co/9agBEZaC2R
Several social media users joined the backlash against the vice presidential hopeful’s analogy.
“Equity through government force inevitably puts one group at a disadvantage to another to social engineer outcomes. That’s not fair or equitable,” one remarked.
“The Dems are finally open about their admiration of the most repressive system of organizing society,” another user said.
“Kamala Harris is openly campaigning on communism as late as November 1st,” another added.
“They are brazen and open about it now.”
Harris, whom GovTrack rated as the most left-wing senator in 2019, made waves as a lawmaker for her racial views, including her advocacy of the Green New Deal and original support for Medicare for All, according to Breitbart.
While she has softened her views since accepting the position as Joe Biden’s (D) running mate, she continued to carry them out throughout the Democrat primary despite attempting to cast herself as a moderate.
During the 2019 Democrat primary race, Harris said America must “have and adopt a Green New Deal” and pitched radical proposals during CNN’s Climate Change Town Hall, signaling an openness to “changing dietary guidelines — the food pyramid” to reduce red meat consumption.
“I’ve actually worked on this issue in the past, and it’s about consumer awareness,” Harris said at the time.
“I strongly believe the American consumer is left without the information that you need and deserve to have about what it is that you are putting in your body or surrounding yourselves with and the health implications of those things,” she added.
During a virtual discussion with the far-left members of the “Squad” on Friday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) declared that electing Joe Biden is “not the end-all. It is the beginning” for their progressive vision:

“We’re not giving up on our agenda,” he said, adding that they will “organize our people to make sure that Biden becomes the most progressive president since FDR.”
