Double Standards Are Becoming Standard

posted on November 1, 2018

Thanks to our friends at for again pointing out something we’ve long known: Kamala Harris is a big hypocrite.

It seems that Harris, a 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner and gun-ban advocate, regularly receives more armed security than most California “dignitaries.”

“Armed, plain-clothes LAPD officers were dispatched to California cities outside of Los Angeles at least a dozen times to provide security for U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris at public events, media appearances and a party,” NBC Los Angeles recently reported. “The LAPD routinely provides security for dignitaries and officials visiting L.A., but a senior retired department official said the courtesy extended to Sen. Harris for her travels to other cities was unprecedented.”

It’s just another example of Harris’ guns-for-me-but-not-for-thee philosophy. She’s more than happy to curtail the rights of average citizens to defend themselves and their families, but doesn’t plan to give up her means of protection anytime soon.
