Kamala Has a New Equity Word Salad, DeSantis Takes Her Apart for 'Identity Politics'

I reported previously on Kamala Harris’ radical, racist comment — “giving resources based on equity” — as she spoke about distributing relief for Hurricane Ian.


That of course got a lot of blowback from people thinking that hurricane relief was going to be distributed based on race. Of course, when put on the spot about her remarks, she blew off questions because she couldn’t justify what she said. But she smirked as she ran away.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ripped apart Kamala for her comments saying he thought she was trying to play identity politics, but that isn’t what’s going to happen in Florida with the relief.


“That is not going to happen. It’s totally not appropriate. You don’t have to politicize every single tragedy in this country.” DeSantis also noted that the FEMA administrator said everyone would get be able to get relief, regardless of race.

​We’re going to support all communities. I committed that to the governor, I commit to you right here that all Floridians are going to be able to get the help that is available to them through our programs​,” Deanne Criswell said on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. ​

Criswell was responding to a question from host Margaret Brennan about Harris’ Friday comments and the backlash that they prompted, including from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ re-election campaign, which said the remarks ​could cause “undue panic.”

But that wasn’t the first time she has pushed the “equity” card and now she’s out with another “equity word salad.” Listen as she tells us the “principle of what we must do in the spirit and in the interest of equity.”

If you were trying to figure out what “equity” was from what she said, I’m not sure you could. Of course, it’s a bit of a made-up thing, to begin with, treating people based on race, rather than “equality” — treating people equally under the rule of law.


It got even better as she claimed that communities would benefit “psychically” from racial “equity.”

Many people had fun with that one, riffing that she was trying to commune with the dead like Joe Biden.

I have no idea what she’s saying half the time but what I do know is that all communities would benefit in all kinds of ways if she and Biden were no longer in power, if we put competent people with working brains in the offices.
