Now With A Sanitized Wikipedia Page, Kamala Harris Touting A Drive-Thru Vote
By Judi McLeod –July 7, 2020
With ditzy Joe Biden still hiding out in the basement of his Delaware home—never more to be seen in public—presumptive vice president pick Senator Kamala Harris is coming down the pike.
Like Biden, Harris is trying to play it in-the-bag safe.
‘Kamala Harris’ Wikipedia page scrubbed of information amid veepstakes, igniting online fight’ (Fox News, July 6, 2020.)
“An online battle has erupted over the Wikipedia page for Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., with a significant uptick in edits that reflects a pattern that’s been seen ahead of past vice-presidential announcements and led Wikipedia to put the page under “discretionary sanctions.”
“The trend was first reported last week by The Intercept. According to the revision history of the Harris article on Wikipedia, there have been 500 revisions to the page since May 9, most of which have been made by one highly prolific editor.
“That editor first started significantly changing the article in April, making additions that led another editor to say on the Kamala Harris “talk” page, “[y]ou seem to have gone through a database of press releases from Harris’ office, cataloging every single one and adding it to the article. That is not how we write encyclopedic articles.”
“That user also removed information that was critical of Harris, with some other editors on the “talk” page objecting to changes regarding Harris’ relationship with former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown that were allegedly made “without adequate justification.” Users also objected to changes related to Harris’ record as an aggressive prosecutor, with one editor making a change on July 2—after The Intercept published its story— saying they were “restoring more scrubbed well-sourced content. Just because it may be ‘unflattering’ doesn’t mean it needs to be censored.”
“I’m not a Democratic operative, I do this for free because I’m sick of misinformation about Kamala Harris,” he said on the Harris “talk” page.
“Harris has widely been seen as one of the favorites to be the running mate for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. But her record as a prosecutor, which dogged her during the initial stages of the Democratic presidential primary race last year, could be even more of a liability now as a wave of anti-police sentiment has swept the nation, especially among the left wing of the Democratic Party.
“It’s unclear that the edits to Harris’ page, which have been much more frequent than those for other potential Democrats involved in the 2020 “veepstakes,” signify anything more than one highly dedicated individual wanting to make the page reflect more positively on Harris. But the attention brought onto the issue by the media last week appears to have led other editors to place the page under more scrutiny, aiming to ensure that it includes both flattering and unflattering information on the senator.
“Multiple editors on the “talk” page have argued that the one prolific editor should “recuse himself from editing the Kamala Harris page.”
Another added: “I am concerned that Wikipedia not be turned into a campaign website for Kamala Harris.”
And you thought that Kamala Harris could only be seen in online dance moves!
While Wikipedia editors are fighting it out among themselves, Harris has come out of the Democrat barn, adding a new twist to the Party’s all-out mission to make the 2020 election a complete Mail-In Vote:
“Kamala Harris just released a massive Voting Rights Bill with an INNOVATIVE new idea: Drive-Thru Polling Locations.(Stop-Republicans.org email, July 6, 2020)
“MAKE VOTING EASY:
LET PEOPLE CAST THEIR BALLOTS WITHOUT LEAVING THEIR CAR (VERY VERY SAFE OPTION)
“Listen—Kamala Harris just came up with an INCREDIBLE plan to keep Democrats safe to vote in the 2020 Election:
“A National System of Drive-Thru Voting (SO SMART)
100,000 CITIZEN CO-SPONSORS NEEDED IN JULY: Will you add your name to co-sponsor Kamala Harris’ drive-thru voting bill?
“We must ensure that it is safe to vote in the 2020 Election.
“We need to make voting accessible for Every Democrat—or Trump will win re‑election.
“But with Trump’s cronies like Mitch McConnell in control of the Senate, Kamala Harris’ plan is in DANGER. He knows that the GOP would be in shambles if elections were actually fair!
“That’s why we’re calling on a MASSIVE wave of 100,000 citizen co-sponsors to PASS Kamala Harris’ drive-thru voting bill
“PAID FOR BY STOP REPUBLICANS PAC
“Stop Republicans, an accountability project of Progressive Turnout Project, is a grassroots-funded effort dedicated to resisting the Republican Party and Donald Trump’s radical right wing agenda. “
Conclusion: The Democrats, under cover of the Coronavirus, are pressing voting masses to vote for a completely digital presidential candidate in a drive-thru vote where you don’t have to step out of your car!
