Republicans on Twitter chastised Vice President Kamala Harris for misrepresenting gender ideology.
Harris claimed that Republicans wanted to ban women’s history classes.
“They even want to eliminate classes that teach quote ‘gender ideology’,” Harris said. “So what are we talking about here? Classes that teach women’s history? Women’s equality? The study that there are still only 25 women in the United States Senate?”
Gender ideology ― gender theory as it is academically known ― claims that a person’s maleness or femaleness is socially conditioned and fluid. It suggests that biology is secondary to subjective characteristics like feelings.
Babylon Bee founder Seth Dillon slammed Harris’ attempt at gaslighting Republicans.
“No, we’re talking about the ideology that makes it impossible to define ‘woman’ and convinces kids they were born in the wrong body,” Dillon tweeted.
RNC Research commentator Jake Schneider mocked Harris’ ignorance.
“A primary reason an overwhelming majority of Americans can’t stand Kamala Harris is because she lacks a basic understanding of everything,” Schneider tweeted.
Harris’ Gaffe Part of a Pattern
Harris’ gaffe about gender ideology is part of a pattern on her part that has caused even some Democrats to compare her to former Republican Vice President Dan Quayle, who was infamous for sticking his foot in his mouth.
“What a waste it is to lose one’s mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is,” Quayle said flubbing a speech before the United Negro College Fund in May 1989.
Comedian George Carlin mocked Quayle in the early 1990s as being stupid, full of s**t, and nuts.
“Dan Quayle is all three,” Carlin mused.
Some commentators have taken notice.
“… Kamala Harris … may be the most appallingly disingenuous vice president of the United States has ever had since Elbridge Gerry invented gerrymandering back in 1813. Now I don’t know what is more galling about her is it that she continually says things that are totally ridiculous or is it that the same Democrats who lost their minds over Sarah Palin and Dan Quayle are totally okay with her even suggesting that hey she might be an okay president one day,” said Sky News Australia commentator James Morrow.
Morrow continued: “Why? Why? I gotta ask why does she always laugh like a stoner kid who’s just discovered YouTubes of Cheech and Chong.”
His Sky News Australia colleague Rita Panahi made fun of Harris last September after she claimed the U.S. had an alliance with North Korea.
Panahi mocked Harris asking, “Kamala. What did she just say? The U.S. shares a strong and enduring alliance with North Korea. Are you an insane person? The United States has never shared an alliance with the mad, murderous Communists of North Korea.”
Morrow noted that Harris has a long history of just making things up like her boss Joe Biden. Harris was mocked last week for awkwardly laughing about a story her mother allegedly had said about “falling out of a coconut tree.”
“Is Kamala drunk in this clip? This is weird, even for her,” Not the Bee tweeted.
Harris Makes Herself Look Foolish to Voters
“By the time he took office, Quayle’s image as an intellectual lightweight and serial bumbler was sealed. He took on the fictional Murphy Brown and her decision to have a baby out of wedlock, then made a mash of the word ‘potato.’ (Working off an erroneous flash card, he added an extraneous ‘e’ during a stop at a New Jersey elementary school.) That only reinforced the worst many believed about Bush’s understudy,” Los Angeles Times columnist Mark Z. Barabak wrote.
Harris’ foolish comments only reinforce negative perceptions of her that no doubt will be used against her if she runs for president again in 2028.
