Kamala Harris, ‘Me Too’ Hypocrite

With Senator Kamala Harris headlining tonight’s Women for Biden call despite Tara Reade’s sexual harassment and assault allegations against Joe Biden, her “Me Too” hypocrisy should not go unmentioned.

Harris proudly and gleefully participated in the evidence-free, politically motivated smearing of Brett Kavanaugh. Then, Harris was adamant that women who make allegations must be believed. She previously proclaimed, “to all survivors of sexual assault: We hear you. We see you. We will give you dignity. Don't let this process bully you into silence.”

Harris built her presidential campaign on a platform of justice for women and “believing survivors.” Now, she is crassly dismissing a women who stepped forward with an allegation against Joe Biden in hopes that her lack of principles will make her Biden’s pick for vice president.

Tara Reade doesn’t matter to Harris, whose support for Joe Biden simply cannot be reconciled with her relatively recent statements about believing and trusting women who level allegations of sexual assault:

  • “Wore black today in support of all survivors of sexual assault or abuse. We won’t let them be silenced or ignored. #BelieveSurvivors
  • “Survivors of sexual assault deserve to be believed, not blamed.”
  • To all survivors, whether you choose to speak out or not, know that you are not alone. We will never stop fighting for you. #WhyIDidntReport”
  • “My message to sexual assault survivors: Thank you for your courage. Your voices have mattered.”
  • “We cannot let survivors suffer in silence any longer. This conversation must continue out in the open, in a way that gives dignity and safety to survivors.”
  • “To everyone who has come forward with #MeToo, thank you for your courage. To all survivors, know that you are not alone.”
  • “Sexual harassment and discrimination are issues we must confront. We cannot sit back and do nothing. Many brave survivors have stepped forward to tell their stories, and we need to do right by them.”
  • We are failing victims of sexual assault. We must listen to their stories, then fight for justice. Do not ignore these strong survivors.
  • “She is putting herself out there, knowing they’re going to try to excoriate her and she’s doing it, I believe, because she knows that this is an important matter … She has nothing to gain. What does she have to gain? … There’s been a lot of talk about well why is she now coming forward, why didn’t see report? Over 60% of sexual assault victims never report the crime against them.”
