A Democrat, who is running to be America’s second-most powerful political leader, appears to have no objection to shoplifting in the name of racial equality.
Vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was caught on camera, suggesting she was happy for extreme anarchist protesters to loot businesses.
“I think there has to be some form of reparations and we can discuss what that is,” she said in a video shared on YouTube. “There has not been any kind of intervention done understanding the harm and the damage that occurred to correct course, and so we are seeing the effects of all of those years play out still today.”
Harris justified street violence, shoplifting, and vandalism of historical and religious monuments because it was payback for the historical separation of African Americans from white people.
“We are looking at more than 200 years of slavery, we are looking at almost 100 years of Jim Crow [racial segregation] we are looking at legalized segregation, and, in fact, segregation on so many levels that exists today, based on race,” she said.
Harris indicated she would champion movements like Black Lives Matter, under the facade of equal rights, if the Democrats won the presidency at the general election on Nov. 3.
“What kind of resources are we going to put in communities to help folks heal and be on an equal footing?” she said. “Certain things are a result of the dark history—the history of [racial] crime that has occurred in this country, and we are not going to be able to correct course without serious intervention.”
Hundreds of activists held a rally outside Chicago’s South Loop police station in the early hours of Aug. 10. Supporters were encouraged to break into retail businesses and help themselves to whatever they wanted.
A Twitter post asked Michiganders to show solidarity for those arrested for “protesting another police shooting and taking repatriations from corporations.”
Black Lives Matters organizer Ariel Atkins even seemed to have no moral issues with shoplifting valuable brand-name fashion items because the shops have already insured themselves for theft and vandalism, and can simply make a claim to recover their losses.
“I do not care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” she said, according to Breitbart. “That makes sure that person has clothes … anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”
