Kamala Harris Says Disaster Relief Should Be ‘Based On Equity’ (Race)

Governor DeSantis described the damage from Hurricane Ian as that of a 500-year flood after a 9+ foot surge in Fort Myers.

Yet, as millions of Floridians deal with the fallout of Ian, the leadership of our nation, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are reminding us again of the unstable, confusing, and radical agenda they have both signed onto.

Instead of showing true leadership and reassuring all victims of Hurricane Ian that they will receive the help and resources needed to rebuild their lives, the VP called for discrimination against white residents, in the pursuit of equity.

Vice President Harris said Friday that aid distributed in the wake of natural disasters like Hurricane Ian should be “based on equity.”

“It is our lowest-income communities and communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions and impacted by issues, not of their own making,” Harris said before being interrupted by Priyanka Chopra Jonas at a Democratic National Committee Women’s Leadership Forum.

“And so we have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality but we also need to fight for equity, understanding not everyone starts out in the same place and if we want people to be in an equal place sometimes we have to take into account disparities and do that work,” the unpopular VP said.

The term “equity”, used by radical social justice activists, refers to fairness and justice and is distinguished from equality: Whereas equality means providing the same to all, equity means recognizing that we do not all start from the same place and must acknowledge and make adjustments to imbalances.

Harris’ comments drew fire from some conservatives who took the comments to mean that race was being factored into aid distribution.

“Kamala Harris couldn’t even make it through five minutes before bringing up social justice and equity,” journalist Ian Miles Cheong tweeted.

“If Hurricane Ian gave a chance for the Biden administration and its lackeys to behave like normal politicians, they completely failed to pass the bar.”

Christina Pushaw, rapid response director for Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ reelection campaign, disputed Harris’s comments.

“This is false. @VP’s rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified. FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background,” Pushaw tweeted.

Pushaw reiterated that aid was being distributed regardless of race or background in multiple tweets Friday night.

On Thursday, Harris displayed her lack of awareness and inability to deliver a scripted message by touting the strong alliance between the United States and “the Republic of North Korea” during a visit to the Korean Demilitarized Zone.

“The United States shares a very important relationship, which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea,” said the veep, flubbing the official name of longstanding US ally South Korea, the Republic of Korea. “And it is an alliance that is strong and enduring.”
