Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show,” said Monday that the cartoon video clip that Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted out on Sunday was a clear pitch for communism and a tease of how a Joe Biden White House would operate.
The clip featured a white man and a black man who were about to climb a mountain. The visual showed the white man starting next to the rope and the black man unable to grab hold of the rope above him. Harris could be heard in the video pointing out the difference between “equality and equity.”
“It’s about giving people the resources and support they need so that everyone can be on equal footing, and then compete on equal footing. Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place,” she said.
Andrew Sullivan, the journalist who is a critic of woke culture, followed Harris’ tweet with his own post.
“Why would a vice-presidential candidate seemingly endorse full-on Marxism days before a general election? Does she believe the government should enforce equality of outcome for everyone? Seriously?” he asked.
Sexton said he comments are particularly worrying because it is clear that if Biden is elected, she will be the person in the White House calling the shots. He said that Harris has made it clear that any difference in health, wealth, talent and status in society needs to be immediately stamped out.
“What she’s describing is the philosophy of communism that the state will make up for all the imbalances among people and the state will have to be empowered to bring us all to the same place in the end,” Sexton said. “This is the central philosophical appeal of Marxism. this is the basis upon which hundreds of millions of people throughout the 20th century were imprisoned, tortured, murdered, impoverish, forced into despair.”
Sexton looked back at his own life and the decisions he’s made. He said he’s tried to learn from mistakes and make better choices through that knowledge. He said some people are born into a wealthy family where the financial rewards of life come easier. Some people are born behind the Eight Ball.
“And you just have to work with what you’ve got,” Sexton said. “when we talk about equality, what we mean is a legal system that treats people the same way” and the underlying foundation that we are all human beings who are equal in dignity, worth and value in the end.”
