Biden Running mate Kamala Harris is facing a flood of criticism for a new video that she posted and narrates where she compared “equity and equality.”
In the video, Harris says “Equality suggests, ‘oh, everyone should get the same amount,'” she continues “the problem with that…not everybody’s starting out from the same place…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.”

The criticism came in fast and has not stopped.
James Lindsey fired back “Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place” is literally communism.”
Robby Starbuck wrote “I’ll save you all time, she’s a communist. They always make it look and sound pretty, fair, unthreatening and utopian but in reality it’s always ugly, unfair, full of threats and dystopian. Venezuelans & Cubans have seen this movie before and are warning you it doesn’t end well.”
Andrew Sullivan, who is even a Biden supporter wrote “Why would a vice presidential candidate seemingly endorse full-on Marxism days before a general election? Does she believe government should enforce equality of outcome for everyone? Seriously?”
Liz Cheney wrote “Sounds just like Karl Marx”
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

Kamala Harris reminds the American people why she is the most liberal Senator.
This is flat out communist propaganda. https://t.co/iTWjLYmZaP

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
