Kamala Harris insists lynching is not a relic of the past as Dems make the act ‘doubly illegal’

With war raging in Eastern Europe and Americans beset with soaring gas prices, inflation and talk of food shortages, President Biden and his Democrat cohorts celebrated the signing of a bill that makes lynching a federal hate crime.

To justify the distraction from these pressing problems and a number of potentially dangerous off-the-cuff remarks he has uttered in the past week about Ukraine, Biden pushed the notion that lynching remains a problem today, getting a ready assist from Vice President Kamala Harris.

“Racial hate isn’t an old problem,” the president said at a Rose Garden signing ceremony. “It’s a persistent problem.”

In her element of playing the victimization card, Harris went one better.

“Lynching is not a relic of the past. Racial acts of terror still occur in our nation,” she said. “And when they do, we must all have the courage to name them and hold the perpetrators to account.”

The most recent example of someone being held to account for perpetrating a hate crime occurred earlier this month when disgraced actor Jussie Smollett was sentenced to 150 days in jail after staging an attack on himself — though he has already been released, courtesy of a liberal judge.

Harris referred to that production as a “modern day lynching,” as you may recall:

Jill Collen Jefferson, a lawyer and founder of Julian, a civil rights organization named after the late civil rights leader Julian Bond, told The Washington Post in Aug. 2021 that the “last recorded lynching in the United States was in 1981,” although the liberal newspaper cited court records and police reports to say, “Since 2000, there have been at least eight suspected lynchings of Black men and teenagers in Mississippi.”

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to making an already illegal act “doubly illegal,” as seen on Twitter:
