Kamala Harris’ Naval gazing speech

Kamala Harris’ Naval gazing speech. By the NY Post Editorial Board.

On this Memorial Day weekend, what does Vice President Kamala Harris decide to talk about in front of the Naval Academy’s graduating class? Solar power.

“Just ask any Marine today, would she rather carry 20 pounds of batteries or solar panels, and I am positive, she will tell you a solar panel — and so would he,” she said.

(And if you want to see media bias in action, ABC News added “said to applause.” In truth, there was silence, until Harris gave a little chuckle to prompt the crowd in “please clap” fashion.)

Start with the pandering pronoun “joke.” Women have been members of the Navy and Marines for a century, and allowed to be in all combat units since 2016. Harris using a woman as her example was perfectly normal — but adding “and so would he” is just performance art for the woke. It isn’t a punchline, it’s a sneer.

China is spending its time taking over the South China Sea, bullying Hong Kong, Taiwan and John Cena, pushing its influence into Africa, preparing for the next century. Kamala Harris wants to make sure our soldiers are carbon neutral.
