Vice President Kamala Harris is on the warpath against GOP leaders she's deemed as 'extremists' for their policies that uphold conservative values, and her next move is to take her rage on the road in protest.
Harris, herself one of the most radical leftists to hold office in the White House in history, has launched a full-on attack on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis -- among others -- in a desperate effort to push back on his increasing power and influence.
In an appearance at the National Action Network 2023 Convention in New York on Friday, Harris decried DeSantis' aggressive campaign to protect family values in the state of Florida.
She opened her speech with a chastizement for all GOP leaders, but quickly turned her ire to DeSantis.
"Extremists across our country attack the freedom to vote. They banned books to attempt to erase America's full history. They attack the ability of people to love openly with pride," Harris mourned.
"Just yesterday in Florida, extremists there signed a six-week ban — before most women even know they're pregnant," Harris raged. "And then isn't it interesting that in the midst of all these attacks on fundamental freedoms, these so-called ‘leaders' dare to tell us they are fighting for our freedoms? Don't you find it interesting?"
DeSantis quietly signed a historic six-week abortion ban into law on Thursday. The new law bans abortions after six weeks, with exceptions for rape and incest up to 15 weeks.
"We are proud to support life and family in the state of Florida,” the governor said in a statement announcing the event “I applaud the Legislature for passing the Heartbeat Protection Act that expands pro-life protections and provides additional resources for young mothers and families.”
Harris goes on the campaign trail
DeSantis's bold leadership against the blight of abortion has enraged Democrats nationwide, and Kamala Harris is no exception -- in fact, campaigning against DeSantis and other pro-life GOP leaders appears to be Kamala's biggest priority currently.
In another surprise speech at a Los Angeles rally on Saturday, Harris once again railed against the GOP's successful campaign against abortion.
"This is a moment that history will show required each of us — based on our collective love of our country — to stand up, and fight for, and protect our ideals," Harris urged the crowd.
"That's what this moment is. When you attack the rights of women in America, you are attacking America" she declared on the steps of city hall.
The White House's official stance on the Florida bill is considerably less bombastic but just as sinister.
"The President and Vice President believe women should be able to make healthcare decisions with their doctors and families — free from political interference,” announced White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre when the bill first came to the table in March. "They are committed to protecting access to reproductive care, and continue to call on Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade in federal law."
