Kamala pulled no punches when attacking Joe Biden, tying him to his partnership with segregationist Democrats. The Daily Wire reports:
During the second Democratic debate on Thursday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) ripped into front-runner and former Vice President Joe Biden over his former opposition to federally-mandated school busing as a means of desegregation:
HARRIS: Growing up, my sister and I had to deal with the neighbor who told us her parents couldn’t play with us because we were black. And I will say also that, in this campaign, we have also heard – and I’m going to now direct this at Vice President Biden – I do not believe you are a racist, and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground. But I also believe – and it’s personal – it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose bussing.
And, you know, there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bussed to school every day. And that little girl was me. So I will tell you that, on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats. We have to take it seriously. We have to act swiftly. As attorney general of California, I was very proud to put in place a requirement that all my special agents would wear body cameras and keep those cameras on.
Kamala Harris pulled ahead in this debate thanks to this attack, and Biden could very well end up losing support. Will this shake out in favor of the Republicans?
