Fully Vaccinated Masked Kamala Harris Looks Weak Standing Next to Unmasked Mexican President

Western Journal

Vice President Kamala Harris projected weakness and flouted science in Mexico City on Tuesday when she met with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

USA Today reported the pair met to discuss the relationship between the two countries. Harris declared Mexico and the U.S. are “embarking on a new era” during the visit, which occurred after the vice president left Central America in an apparent attempt to address the immigration quagmire her administration has created.

Harris stopped in Guatemala on Sunday to view the place of origin for many of the people her administration has indirectly encouraged to come into the porous U.S. border with Mexico, although she told potential migrants not to travel to the U.S. on Tuesday.

At the Palacio Nacional in Mexico, Harris touted the close relationship she says she has with the country’s neighbor to the south. But while López Obrador embraced science in the post-vaccine era of the coronavirus pandemic, Harris, who has been vaccinated, embarrassed this country by wearing a theatrical garment over her face during a photo op.

Peter Velz, the director of press operations for Harris, also shared an image of the two leaders standing side by side.

“Mexican President López Obrador welcomed the @VP to the National Palace, which doubles as his residence, and showed her ‘The History of Mexico’ by Diego Rivera,” Velz wrote. “The fresco painter was born in Mexico City and lived in San Francisco, where VP Harris served as District Attorney.”

Velz didn’t explain why Harris was wearing a mask six months after she was vaccinated for the coronavirus. Perhaps he didn’t need to.

Harris and other high-profile Democrats routinely flout science by keeping up with the ongoing mask charade. These people simply can’t quit the pandemic — not even when the need to project a sense of pride and confidence while visiting another country supersedes the need to play political games domestically.

Harris’ theatrics made both her and the country appear weak and afraid during a time when she needed to stand side by side with López Obrador by appearing, at the very least, as a peer.

She allowed him to tower over her.

Harris needed to project confidence and strength, but she chose to appear as an anonymous woman standing next to a confident world leader who not only showed his face, but also didn’t undermine the apparent efficacy of vaccinations. López Obrador, who himself was vaccinated in April, according to Reuters, has no need to virtue signal virus mitigation efforts after becoming immune to the virus.

It’s difficult to argue that Harris did not display to the Mexican people that she is out of her league. By virtue of that, it’s difficult to see a reason why people in that country considering entering the U.S. from Mexico have any reason to listen to her.

Why would any person listen to someone who so flagrantly violates social mores and undermines common sense?

Harris visited Central America and Mexico this week, and the most memorable moment of those diplomatic missions was that she dared not show her face to the people of Mexico.

There is another consequential place where Harris has also not shown her face: the border. In her fifth month as VP, Harris hasn’t gone anywhere near the U.S. border with Mexico. Since becoming the Biden administration’s border czar, she has not approached any of the facilities that she and her boss have transformed into an epicenter of human suffering.

Harris is apparently concerned about virtue signaling to her party’s unhinged base, more than she is about anything else.

Cowardly Mayor Suspends Pledge of Allegiance Over Threats, So Citizens Rise in Unison and Sound Off

Western Journal

Published

on

The mayor of Silverton, Colorado, apparently tried to be politically correct to win points with like-minded individuals by seeking to suspend the Pledge of Allegiance from Town of Silverton board of trustee meetings on June 14. Instead, he got an earful of outrage from the residents of the small mountain town during the public comments hearing. When Mayor Shane Fuhrman called the meeting to order, he made a statement many found distasteful, KCNC-TV reported. “Due to direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of public meetings, and the general divisiveness this is creating in our community, we will not be doing the Pledge of Allegiance during town of Silverton board of trustee meetings,” Fuhrman stated. Fuhrman did not explain what the threats and inappropriate comments were nor how they related to the pledge, opting to suspend it on none other than Flag Day. After he finished speaking, Town Trustee Molly Barela objected. “Any other unilateral decisions we need to know about?” she asked. “If you’d like to find somewhere in the code that does not permit me to do this, then I’d welcome that discussion at our next meeting,” Fuhrman lamely responded. Barela’s protestations that it was a long-standing tradition to say the pledge and all members of the board took an oath and decided collectively that the pledge would be said fell on deaf ears. “This is not up for discussion,” Fuhrman said. https://youtu.be/jVN3VQ-JxLc Townspeople Rise in Opposition During the public comments portion of the meeting, residents of the tiny town — less than a thousand in population — rose in unison to say the pledge anyway. Barela and another board member stood and joined them. The mayor declared them all “out of order” and threatened to have them removed. Barela later told KDVR-TV that “to tell members of…

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment. After…
