The stark contrast between the tone of this week’s dual democratic debates was something to behold.
Night one was dominated by Marianne Williamson, spiritual guru and self-help author, who despite receiving the second to least amount of talking time was the most searched candidate in 49 of the 50 states in post-debate Google analysis. Williamson also smashed her opponents in a poll on Drudge Report, lending a bit of credibility to her performance.
That should tell you all that you need to know about the desperation of the democrats to somehow beat Donald Trump in 2020.
On the second night of the contest, however, the message of “love” that Williamson was carrying on about was a distant memory. Instead, the democrats had their knives out, with mid-tier candidate Tulsi Gabbard landing one of the night’s most potent punches at the expense of virtual frontrunner Kamala Harris.
Gabbard’s words were positively brutal.
“I want to bring the conversation back to the broken criminal justice system that is disproportionately negatively impacting black and brown people all across this country today. Now Senator Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president.
“But I’m deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.
“She blocked evidence — she blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California.”
The “laughing” incident was a particular embarrassing one for Harris, with the Senator claiming flippantly that she had listened to Tupac Shakur and other hip hop artists while smoking marijuana in her dorm room. Researchers were quick to point out that Harris was not in college at a time when the artists mentioned had even released any albums, effectively turning her “yeah, I’m cool” moment into nothing more than pandering.
