Do You Know What the Democrats Said at Their Debate?

by Dennis Prager


Kamala Harris: “President Trump, you’ve spent the last two-and-a-half years full-time trying to sow hate and division among us …”

In reality, it is the left that has spent full-time “trying to sow hate and division among us” — and not for the last two-and-a-half years but for the last 50. It is the left that has mocked the notion of America as a “melting pot.” It is the left that has defined Americans by their race and ethnicity.

Kamala Harris: “We know that the vast majority of us have so much more in common than what separates us, regardless of our race, where we live or the party with which we’re registered to vote.”

This is false on two grounds.

First, the left constantly tells us that every American who voted for Donald Trump or supports him is a racist at best and a white supremacist at worst. Does Harris have more in common with people whom she considers white supremacists — or does more separate her from them?

As I constantly note, truth is a liberal and a conservative value but has never been a left-wing value. The left’s only criterion in determining whether or not to say something is not whether it is true or false but whether it is effective or ineffective.

Second, the notion that we all have more in common than what separates us is not true no matter who says it. The only thing that the left and the non-left have in common is biological — we are all homo sapiens. Valueswise, we are utterly different.
