The Democrats must have forgotten that there is a reason they don’t let Kamala out of the house to speak in front of the cameras much anymore, as they let her speak at the Democratic National Committee Event at the Howard Theater in D.C. The result? She went on a rambling speech about “our democracy” that was about as bad as any of her other word salads.
To be fair to Kamala, she did start things well. After thanking everyone involved in helping turn the red wave into a red ripple, Kamala used the meme line to the laughs and applause of the audience, saying “You did it, Joe” and then “Couldn’t help myself” and the audience laughed.
But then things went downhill, with Kamala going on a rambling speech about “our democracy” and using all the other typical leftie talking points about “democracy” and such in a word salad, saying:
So, as we gather here, votes are still being counted, but it is clear your work sent a message to the entire world: Our democracy is intact.
And when democracy is intact, this is what it looks like. And here’s the thing: Some Democrats won and some Republicans won. That is what happens when more than 100 million Americans participate and vote in free and fair and open elections. That’s what happens.
And that included young people, seniors, parents with children in tow, working people who all made their voices heard. And the people in this room and around our country made that possible by standing up for basic American values: freedom, liberty, and the rule of law. And I believe when you know what you stand for, you know what to fight for.
This year, like so many of you, I traveled across our country. We convened students and faith leaders, organizing and advocating to protect the sacred right to vote. We convened candidates and elected officials defending the right to retire with dignity by defending Social Security and Medicare.
And, of course, everywhere I went, we brought together people fighting for reproductive freedom — people everywhere, from every background. Because here’s the thing: One does not have to abandon their faith or deeply held beliefs to agree the government should not be telling a woman what to do with her body. (Applause.)
Voters across our country knew what they stood for, so they knew what to fight for. They predected [sic] and they protected and they protected reproductive rights in Vermont, in Michigan, in California, and in Kentucky.
[…]From day one, our President — has fought on behalf of all Americans and our democracy. Joe Biden understands the dual nature of democracy — its fragility and its strength. He’s been talking about it since day one: the strengths of democracy that lie in principles about treating people equally and electing people fairly, to lift up instead of to beat folks down.
