It’s so sad that the way Hillary Clinton was attacked for years, and especially the way she was treated during the 2016 Presidential election, has become a verb. But it has, and right now the target is Kamala Harris. And even if she is not your candidate, you should not be okay with this.
It wouldn’t be too, too surprising if you haven’t noticed, as her mentions are not indicative of her support nor of her endorsements.
And after her extraordinary speech in Iowa, C-Span initially did not even include her in the video list of those speaking. For over thirteen hours, every candidate (including some I bet you forgot were running) were listed. But not Kamala. In case you missed it, you can watch her speech here.
C-Span also left her out of a photo that purported to include all the candidates. I won’t link it as I don’t want it spreading any more than it has. Instead, here’s my new favorite Kamala photo.
Despite the ongoing attempts to “Hillary” Kamala, debunked here, we can still do this. As this article says so well, “but in a general election against an unqualified, misogynistic, white, male racist, Kamala Harris is lightning in a bottle.”
So don’t give up. Don’t stop fighting. Don’t let another great woman be Hillaried. Because we can do this. Kamala can do this. #YesWeKam
