(PresidentialInsider.com)- In the finals days of the 2020 presidential race, Senator Kamala Harris chose to promote a blatantly communist principle of “Equity” in a video she published on Twitter. The Democratic vice presidential nominee was not shy about advertising her far-left principles with the short animated video narrated by her.
“Equality suggests, ‘Oh, everyone should get the same amount,’” she says. “The problem with that, not everybody’s starting out from the same place…So if we’re all getting the same amount, but you started out back there, and I started but over here, we could get the same amount, but you’re still going to be that far back behind me.”
The video, which even adopted similar aesthetic themes to communist propaganda, explained how Kamala Harris supports the principle of ensuring equal outcome rather than equal opportunity.

“It’s about giving people the resources and the support they need so that everyone can be on an equal footing, and then compete on equal footing,” she added. “Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place.”
Equity, where people end up at the same place, is a core principle of communism. It does away with the principles of freedom, individuality, and free choice, and instead forces people to operate according to state rules and regulations with a view to ensuring everybody “end up at the same place.”
Unsurprisingly, conservatives picked up on this and slammed Harris for promoting the anti-American and anti-equality message.
“Sounds just like Karl Marx,” US House candidate Liz Cheney said.
Sounds just like Karl Marx.
A century of history has shown where that path leads.
We all embrace equal opportunity, but government-enforced equality of outcomes is Marxism. https://t.co/76GRFhl34X

Conservative news host Ben Shapiro also said that Harris is making the argument that inequality of outcome is in and of itself inequity.
So she’s openly making the argument that inequality of outcome is in and of itself inequity. Which is called communism. https://t.co/IJ5OKJwpOw

“Which is called communism,” he added.
Days before a presidential election, has any other major candidate in history endorsed a principle also embraced by communists so publicly?
