(RepublicanWire.org) – In a Labor Day interview, Vice President Kamala Harris claimed that she only tried her first grape in her twenties due to her commitment to “never cross a picket line.”
“This sounds quaint, and so I’m reluctant to say it, but, you know, I didn’t eat a grape until I was in my 20s,” Harris told The Nation in a Monday interview. “Like, literally, had never had a grape. I remember the first time I had a grape, I went, ‘Wow! This is quite tasty.’ It was absolutely ingrained so deeply in me: Never cross a picket line.”
Unfortunately for her, the timeline just doesn’t seem to hold up.
Harris was born in 1964, meaning she turned twenty in 1984. This is where the timeline starts to fall apart, as noted by the New York Post when they observed that Harris’ story was “inconsistent” with the timeline of the three large-scale grape boycotts that were implemented by the United Farm Workers. The Post went on to explain that “the UFW launched its third and longest California grape boycott in June 1984.”
So in 1984 Harris would’ve been what? Nineteen or twenty? So what kept her from eating grapes for the prior eighteen years?
The UFW’s boycott reportedly lasted until 2000, so this would’ve been between ages 19 and 36 for Harris.
Why put forth a narrative that can be so easily disproven?
As long as this little thing called “government” has been in existence, elected officials and those who want to be in those positions have told stories that they hope will give off the impression that they were “born” to represent the people simply because they were supposedly civic-minded very early on in life at a time when most young people have other things on their minds that understandably have nothing to do with politics.
Biden and Harris keep telling these questionable if not, outright false stories, because it works. They tell these stories that have if any basis, then only a tangential one, in reality, and the establishment media says — nothing. They completely fail to challenge the narrative, in spite of obvious holes.
