WOW! Kamala Harris’s own father calls her out, categorically dissociates himself from part of her campaign!

It’s never a good look for a candidate when their own family members criticize them for any issues they support.

But that’s exactly what happened here to Kamala Harris when her own father came out and blasted her position on marijuana, especially with respect to her Jamaican heritage:

FREE BEACON – Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s new embrace of smoking marijuana didn’t go well back in Jamaica, where her father said her ancestors would be “turning in their grave” after hearing her stereotype the island’s people as “pot-smoking joy seekers.”

Harris cited her Jamaican heritage last week when she admitted to smoking marijuana. The California senator scoffed at claims that she opposes legalizing the drug by saying, “Half my family is from Jamaica, are you kidding me?” She said she supports legalization because smoking “gives a lot of people joy, and we need more joy.”

Her father Donald Harris, who came to the United States from Jamaica in pursuit of a graduate degree in economics, took issue with his daughter’s use of the drug stereotype as she runs for president.

“My dear departed grandmothers, as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,” he said in a statement to Jamaica Global that gained attention in the United States over the weekend.

“Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty,” he said.

Dang. He even says it’s all being done in the name of ‘identity politics’.



He then labels it a travesty and says he and his immediate family categorically disassociate from it.

That’s amazing!

I wouldn’t expect to see this in any campaign commercials for a while. But you can better believe that when things start to get hot and heavy in the Democratic Primary, someone will put his in an ad.

Heres something that ought to open your eyes. Kamala Harris Grandmother Was A Plantation Slave Owner Founder of Brownstown Jamaica As the presidential buzz continues to grow around the possible candidacy of California Senator Kamala Harris, interest is also growing around her little-known Jamaican heritage. Harris has been quoted as saying she is not ruling out a bid for the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election but as her stocks continue to rise the last Washington Post quarterly ranking of July 10, saw her being elevated from 4 to 3 among the possible contenders. The prospect of a woman of Jamaican heritage occupying the White House must lead a curious nation to ask: how much of an influence did her early upbringing by her Jamaican father have on the formation of her character and current world view? In this open and revealing article Donald Harris reflects on the ‘Jamaicanness’… Read more »

She started her career of gaining power by being Willy Brown’s mistress. I wonder if her family knows that.

I am so cynical of the Democrats at this point that i question the timing of all of this. She might have asked her dad to make the comment that he did to take attention away from her comments about lynching after Jussie claimed he was a victim, she ran with the attack on Trump supporters when the story first broke but wants facts when her friend was beginning to look like a liar [she is a big hypocrite]. If deflecting from that issue and focusing on marijuana was the plan – it worked. The media only cares about her MJ comments now.

I contacted Camela regarding her opinions on abortion on demand, below is her response.FTR – I DO NOT SHARE HER BELIEVE THAT W MUST INCREASE ACCESS AND IMPROVE CARE FOR OUR MOST VULNERABLE WOMEN. THAT’S POLITICAL SPEAK FOR SUPPORTING PLANNED PARENTHOOD, WHICH I DESPISE. Give her a call, her number is below. Just don’t expect an an answer to YOUR questions. Despicable. “Thank you for reaching out to share your thoughts on women’s health care. When women are healthy, our communities thrive and our economies flourish. As a senator representing the largest and one of the most diverse states in our nation, I believe every woman—regardless of income, race, or sexual orientation—has the right to high-quality health care. All women and families should have access to comprehensive reproductive health care. I have spent my career standing up for reproductive freedom and access to high-quality, affordable family planning services. As California’s… Read more »

Kamala Harris is a dope smokin’ Jamoke. Do you trust dope smokin’ Kamala Harris with the nuclear codes?

Kamala Harris is also anti-Christian as evidenced by her inquiry into Federal appointees’ religious beliefs during Senate confirmation hearings.

Kamala Harris is an angry black woman. She is a sexually aggressive, promiscuous adulteress as evidenced by her adulterous sexual affair with CA politician Wille Brown. She wears knee pads.

Harris is the one to watch on the Demoncrats podium, she is fits all of their criteria in 2020. Political hack, a woman, a minority, connections, younger than Bern and Joe, be very wary of this one.

A little hint of some smoke from the tail of the Harris campaign plane beginning to flame out and crash spectacularly. It’s coming, that twit isn’t ready for prime time by any stretch of the imagination.

So, has her family disassociated themselves with the fact that Harris slept her way to the “top”? If she wasn’t a dirty ho-bag, no one would be talking about her today. What say you, Daddy Man?

I wholeheartedly agree with marijuana legalization but I damn sure wouldn’t vote for a Leftist to make it happen. The fed’s need to leave it to the states to vote on for themselves.

How many of these politicians were raised properly, and abandoned it all because of peer pressure (higher indoctrination, being part of the victim class, etc.), and then for professional advancement, political purposes and power? Kamala Harris is more competent than the rest of the socialists in the Democrat presidential field, and pretending to be a radical is exposing her as a fraud.

Good for him. Sad that this one, small, fringe element of her atrocious platform is what distances him from her politics (and I adamantly oppose the legalization of marijuana). She’s abominable on so many levels… but I’ll take this one. I hope it hurts her campaign.

But it won’t.

What an idiot. This would be like me saying “sure, I like picking up pennies but my parents are Jewish so it’s in my blood”. It may sound harmless, but fills the narrative people think of my culture and is derogatory and inflammatory regardless of whether you belong to that group or not. It’s one thing to joke around with your closest friends about your ethnic group’s foibles. It’s quite another to insult an entire island nation out loud.
Imagine if she were Colombian and said “I snorted cocaine but my parents are from Bogota so hahaha…”
Imagine if a Republican said this? Where is the outrage on the left for this blatant stereotyping?

I knew a Jamaican immigrant when I was a teenager and just started smoking pot. I asked him if a lot of people there smoked it and he said, “Only the poor people.”

Mr. Harris is a true patriot and puts his country first. Harris shouldn’t run for POTUS but send her application form to “The View”. She is vicious, vulgar and dumb enough to perfectly fit into the most despicable female group on TV.

LOL!!!! I read that last night….every one of her ancestors on her father’s side are rolling in their graves over the thoughts and words of this ungrateful spoiled brat. She cannot become president. She has NO values or respect for history. PLUS, she stereotypes Jamaicans as witless potheads.

That’s not how konmari works, Kammy.
