Kamala Harris faces more hecklers at Newsom rally in California

Vice President Kamala Harris, who has been mostly absent from the public view, reemerged on friendly ground in California on Wednesday to stump for Gov. Gavin Newsom who is facing a recall in the state.

Well, she can run but she can’t hide, as many in attendance hurled sentiments critical of the bang-up job she and the Biden regime, in general, have been doing in their first eight months in office.

About 100 yards from the Newsom rally stage in San Leandro, a city of about 90,000 residents located south of Oakland, some protesters chanted and waved the flag of Afghanistan during Harris’ appearance, KTXL of Sacramento reported.

Shouts of “Free, free Afghanistan!” can be heard in a video posted by Sacramento-based reporter Ashley Zavala, a contributor to the outlet.

 

In another post, demonstrator Willy Moosayar, who identifies as an Afghan-American, denounced Harris for not speaking out on the suffering the Biden administration has unleashed upon the population of Afghanistan due to the botched withdrawal of the American military that caused the death of 13 U.S. service members and emboldened the terrorist army of the Taliban.

He said many Afghan refugees now in the U.S. feel what amounts to survivor’s guilt for being safe here while other Afghans who remained behind face the Taliban’s rule.

“We have to fight for them, we have to be their voices,” he said.

Moosayer added that the group was also protesting the loss of women’s rights under the Taliban as well as the predictable acts of retribution against those who aided the U.S. and its allies during the 20-year war; an ongoing scourge the Biden regime hopes everyone will ignore.

The Republican National Committee also targeted Harris for campaigning in California amid the Afghanistan crisis. One ad posted on a mobile billboard said, “Californians are stranded in Afghanistan. Where’s Kamala? Campaigning in California.”

Harris had originally been scheduled to campaign for Newsom in late August on the way back to Washington from her trip to Singapore and Vietnam, but that event was postponed due to the self-inflicted and completely avoidable tragedy in Afghanistan. She did, however, follow through on a visit to Pearl Harbor, though her engagement there was inexplicably hidden from the press.

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the administration’s decision to not allow chartered flights from Afghanistan to land at U.S. military bases, claiming concerns about a lack of proper vetting of the people aboard the flights. They, of course, have no such misgivings when it comes to the U.S. southern border.

Harris on Wednesday became the latest high-profile Democrat to campaign for Newsom. Others have included U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) of Massachusetts, another failed 2020 presidential contender.

Republican talk show host Larry Elder is viewed as the greatest threat to replace Newsom if voters decide to oust the Democrat at the polls next Tuesday.

Elder and members of his entourage and security were accosted and physically attacked on Wednesday during a campaign event. A white, lefty woman in a gorilla mask spearheaded the attack, though none have cried racism or hate crime, because well, it’s good to be a Democrat.

Stay classy, California.
