During a campaign stop on Wednesday for Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, Vice President Kamala Harris appeared to threaten red states saying, “we will show them.”
“We want in our leaders someone like Gavin Newsom who always speaks the truth on behalf of all the people in a way that is about uplifting, that is about helping to understand the plight of working people, to understand the dignity of all people,” she said.
Harris then called out Texas Governor Greg Abbott who recently signed an anti-abortion law, banning abortions after six weeks.
“To arrogantly dismiss concerns about rape survivors, and to speak those words that were empty words, that were false words, that were fueled with not only arrogance but bravado — that is not who we want in our leader,” Harris said. “We want in our leaders someone like Gavin Newsom who always speaks the truth on behalf of all the people in a way that is about uplifting, that is about helping to understand the plight of working people, to understand the dignity of all people.”
Harris then took aim at all red states. “What’s happening in Texas, what’s happening in Georgia, what’s happening around our country with these policies that are about attacking women’s rights, reproductive rights, voting rights, workers’ rights — they think if they can win in California, they can do this anywhere,” one of the least popular vice presidents in history said.
“Well, we will show them, you’re not going to get this done. Not here, never.”
“We fight for our country, we fight for the values we hold dear, we fight for working people, we fight for organized labor, we fight for Dreamers, we fight for women, we fight for voting rights and we stand as Democrats saying we are proud to do all of that and more,” Harris said.
The Daily Wire summarizes:
Despite the crisis at the U.S. border and in Afghanistan, where more than 100 Americans are still reportedly stranded, Harris flew from Washington to her home state to campaign with Newsom, who faces a recall vote next week. President Joe Biden is expected to campaign for him on Monday, the day before the election.
“They wouldn’t be trying to recall him but for the fact that he has always stood for reproductive rights,” Harris said.
Harris also targeted Abbott, who said when asked why the new Texas law does not have exceptions for cases of rape and incest: “Texas will work tirelessly to make sure that we eliminate all rapists from the streets of Texas by aggressively going out and arresting them and prosecuting them and getting them off the streets,” Abbott said.
“To speak those words that were empty words, that were false words, that were fueled not only of arrogance but that were vile, that is not who we want in our leaders,” Harris said.
