‘I Am Kamala Harris. My Pronouns Are She and Her….’
Yes, it has come to this.
By Robert Spencer

Yes, it has come to this. History will record that the Vice President of the United States, a heartbeat away from leading what they used to call the free world, opened a meeting on July 26, 2022, by stating with the utmost seriousness: “I am Kamala Harris. My pronouns are ‘she’ and ‘her.’ I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit.” She even looked down at her lapel as she said “wearing a –” and paused briefly as if to verify that the suit was still blue and hadn’t started to identify as gray or black while she wasn’t looking.

When we were kids in the 1960s and 1970s, we thought that by the 2020s, we’d be driving around in star cruisers and flying to the moon for dinner. Instead, we have to announce to a waiting world whether we are male, female, or something else altogether, and the color of our clothing.

Harris, of course, wasn’t being gratuitously ridiculous, or at least any more than she usually is. She was addressing a “Roundtable with Disability Advocates,” and everyone else who spoke also began by stating their pronouns and what they were wearing. This was apparently intended to be an attempt to make blind people feel more included; when Greg Price responded to this spectacle with “wtf lol,” Kendall Brown, who describes himself/herself (who knows these days?) as a “healthcare advocate fighting to defeat Republican supermajorities,” shot back: “It’s an event commemorating the Americans with Disabilities Act, you mean-spirited ghoul. Attendees decided to help blind participants feel more included by using visual language when introducing themselves. Straight up, there is no difference between the childhood bully mocking disabled kids on the playground and sh**ty dudes like @greg_price11 mocking disabled adults who are just trying to make the world a tiny bit friendlier for one another. How dead inside do you have to be to mock disabled people trying to be more inclusive of disabled people at an event for disabled people?”

Brown might have a case if all Harris had done was announce what color suit she was wearing, although it’s silly to think that blind people will feel more “included” if everyone begins speaking by announcing his or her choice of attire. There have been blind people throughout history, including some people of immense achievement (Homer, Galileo, John Milton, Jorge Luis Borges, Helen Keller, Andrea Bocelli, Ray Charles, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Stevie Wonder, and on and on), and I’m not aware of a single one in any time or place who ever said, “I sure would feel a lot more included if y’all would tell me what you were wearing.”

This was just silly pandering and virtue-signaling, and Harris’ adding in the pronouns made it even worse. Blind people can hear if someone is male or female, but not in the Left’s fantasy world, in which Rachel Levine and Caitlyn Jenner are women and they have to tell you so because it isn’t obvious just from hearing their voices. It was marginally reassuring that Harris acknowledged that she is a woman, but just by engaging in the act of doing so, she showed that she accepts the pervasive madness and thinks that it is altogether fitting and proper for a human being to preface his or her or xis remarks by announcing his or her or xis gender.

The video of Harris solemnly intoning that she was a woman wearing a blue suit was also reminiscent of some of her previous enunciations of the blazingly obvious, as when she said: “So, Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So basically, that’s wrong.” Basically. Harris, in fact, has a reputation for articulating things that others would never think were worth saying, as when she famously this, but about what is still unclear: “The significance of the passage of time, right? The significance of the passage of time. So when you think about it, there is great significance to the passage of time…there is such great significance to the passage of time.”

Yes, and to her (checks lapel) blue suit. Our age will be remembered as one of a peculiar society-wide flight from reality, and pronouncements such as Harris’ declaration of her gender and what she was wearing will stand as indications of how pervasive the fantasies really were. One day, we’ll wake up from all this, just as Salem woke up from the witch trial hysteria. Until then, Kamala Harris and other Leftists will continue their valiant war against facts that once were and will one day again be obvious.

It's like watching Abbot and Costello. As silly as they were, they still had more common sense than these two in the White House. What an unbelievable disaster for this country that we have sunk so low. I don't know how old you are, but I was just a kid when John F. Kennedy was elected. I remember people's concern that he was lacking in experience to be President of the United States. But that guy was a giant filled with wisdom compared to these two nut jobs. There is no way in the sixties and really until recent times that we would have considered these two for dogcatchers much less the highest positions in the land.

The US and its leaders has become a sad Saturday Night Live skit. It blows my mind that these are elected officials saying this stuff...... my goodness the downfall of the US has been so swift since 2020. Some of the things we are seeing I never would have even believed that we (the church) would be here for and yet here we are.

God gives us evil (and incompetent) leaders as judgement.

The REALLY messed up part? That so many Americans don't see this and are, in fact, 100% FINE with it, in fact, view it as an "improvement" from the last administration. There are so MANY of these blind people it's just astonishing.

I think that easily 50% of Americans are either so apathetic or so dumbed down that they wouldn't know the difference between good and bad govt. (Hint: the less of it you actually see in your life on a daily basis the better a govt it is).

It alternately makes me sad and angry at my countrymen. The movie "ideocracy" was meant to be a comedy, not a prophecy.....

I got into an argument on twitter when I responded to this video of Harris and others introducing themselves this way. I said why does it matter that she's wearing a blue suit? It doesn't. I'm sighted and I don't care, and I'm sure most blind people don't care either. Whether she's pushing abortion or ignoring the crisis at the border or laughing about inflation... what she's wearing at a particular meeting does not matter. Others countered, "You're not visually impaired so you don't understand." Understand what? Why would I need to know everyone's dress color in the room? This policy has the feeling of being nice and that's all they care about.

(Caveat: it could matter if she decides she's a he and dresses likewise.)

By the way, the one thing they didn't do was make a statement about this land once belonging to some tribe or other. I'm not against Native American history and I appreciate the place names in our state that acknowledge that. However, our city begins each city council meeting with a land acknowledgement -- only no tribes actually lived on this land, so it's more like "such and such tribes once fished near here". And they begin every meeting with this solemn statement. It's so ridiculous.

These people who are accusing you of "sight-ism" I guess? are operating under an assumption that the blind person even knows what the color "Blue" looks like. To pursue this line of thought to it's dumbest possible conclusion I would have countered that if the blind person(s) in question were blind from birth, the dress color disclaimer likely had the effect of making them feel even more excluded, more "less than" and very much more discriminated against by the "sighted."

What's next? Car stickers that say "Blind Ally?" Actually that would be hilarious, because not only would it not be seen by anyone who would care, it also points to the driver as Someone who blindly follows the prevailing social trend.

Strangely, I have a suspicion that the majority of folks who would even get up in arms about this are NOT in fact, blind persons but college educated young women with tats, facial piercings, dyed hair (pink, blue or green most likely)and glasses. Just a hunch. This fun bunch of angry young ladies is also 200% more likely to accuse a fellow white person of "racism" then a person of color in my experience.

My very gay and angry brother in law was telling my husband that he sees the world improving. o_O My husband told me he was stunned to hear that.

That sounds so familiar. I have a sister in law who works in education and my wife's former boss who runs a small flower shop who would think your bro is talking sense.

No matter how hard it gets or how incompetent our leaders prove themselves to be it's all good to these empty headed, curiously angry liberals because "@ least that awful dictator Trump us out and it looks like he won't be able to come back because he committed treason..."

I am deaf and I do have friends who are deaf and deafblind.... for a long time we always describe what one was wearing to the deafblind comminity whenever the sighted person is vlogging or posting anything with people involved or doing any SSP work. It is important to give them a mental description.

This is nothing new and its has nothing to do with gender...

Okay, that's with friends. But I still don't see how is it relevant to a policy discussion.
