Erie Times E-Edition Article-Harris victory is a win for America

Posted by M. C. on November 17, 2020

The Erie newspaper has no qualms about calling this a Harris administration.

How can the person who pulled 2% popularity in the primary polls and was dumped for the old white guy be called a winner?

The deep state is pulling Harris’ strings who in turn pulls Biden’s until he can no longer be allowed out of the basement.

Brace yourself for the lady who was indoctrinated by the Berkley economics professor father hired in the name of diversity because of his Marxist philosophy.

A Winner!

The issue: Harris victory makes history Our view: U.S. makes good on promise

The president and his enablers in the GOP have cast such an ugly, unworthy pall over what should have been a shining moment in American history.

Voters in this country turned out in historic numbers amid a deadly pandemic to make their voices heard. They chose between stark, contrasting options, the hopeful, inclusive direction for our country championed by former Vice President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, California’s former top prosecutor and now a sitting U.S. senator.

Rather than honor the peaceful transition of power that makes our democracy possible by ceding the race and letting President- elect Biden’s team begin planning for the future with the federal resources set aside for that purpose, President Donald Trump levels baseless attacks on the integrity of the election, blocks the transition process, and suggests he intends to ignore the clear outcome. Biden bested Trump soundly in the both the Electoral College and popular vote. Trump’s own administration said the election was the most secure in American history, yet his failed legal assaults continue.

Trump’s corrosive endgame deserves to go down in American history as the scandal it is. It seems destined to suffer in contrast to Biden’s and Harris’ win, which represents another overdue and welcome expansion America’s promise of liberty and justice for all — something all Americans can celebrate.

Harris, the daughter of immigrants, is the first woman and the first woman of color to win the second-highest office in the land. Her ascent offers tangible witness to America as the land of “possibilities,” as Biden so often terms it.

Her victory makes real promises delayed to women who fought long years to win the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment 100 years ago, a right that took even longer to be realized for women of color.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for other women and little girls to see her and know that they, too, can become great leaders,” as Erie’s first Black City Councilwoman, Rubye Jenkins-Husband, told reporter Jennie Geisler.

The victory carries freight not just with respect to the past, but the present, as the nation still struggles to come to terms with the damaging legacy of white supremacy.

And it shines a welcoming beacon forward after four years in which a foundational aspect of our national identity — America as a nation of immigrants — was drawn into question by the White House. Harris is the daughter of a Jamaican economist and an Indian scientist.

Vice president-elect Harris, in her breakthrough win, helps reaffirm our standing as a nation of freedom, equality and opportunity. As Sharmin Khundker, 51, of Erie, an immigrant from Bangladesh, said to Geisler, women hold high positions of power elsewhere.

“Why not in America? They are supposed to be the leaders,” she said.
