Karen Bass is a radical nut-job who has managed to fly below the radar in Congress for a decade – mostly because she is yet another backbencher who has accomplished nothing. But because the Biden campaign has committed to selecting a “woman of color” for Vice President, Karen Bass is now in the spotlight; and let’s just say it isn’t going at all well for her.
See, Karen Bass is a socialist crank – sort of like an older, uglier AOC. And apparently Karen has harbored a little crush on Cuba’s Fidel Castro since she was a teenager – sort of like a younger, less cantankerous Bernie Sanders.
In fact, when the decrepit old dictator finally bit the dust, Bass eulogized him with heartfelt sincerity.
And now that she is being considered for Biden’s number two, Karen Bass has some ‘splaining to do.
When pressed on the subject during yesterday’s Fox News Sunday, Bass claimed not to know that Fidel Castro was a brutal dictator who oppressed his people.
She had no idea!
But don’t worry. Having now learned that Fidel Castro was a communist dictator who oppressed his people, she totally doesn’t think he’s worthy of the praise she heaped on him four years ago.
Has she been living in a hole? For Pete’s sake, the woman is sixty-six years old and a member of the House. How could she make it to this age and not know anything about Fidel Castro?
The answer of course is, she has always known exactly what kind of person Fidel Castro was.
Castro is one dictator the Left loves because he’s the kind of dictator they all aspire to be.
And Karen Bass can emulate Fidel Castro all she wants so long as she remains a Democrat Congresswoman from a very safe Los Angeles district.
But now she is being considered for a national ticket. And what plays well in LA won’t play well in swing states.
I mean, come on. Joe Biden needs to win Florida. And the Cuban Americans in Florida hate Castro as much as Karen Bass loves him.
So Karen had two choices here.
She could play dumb and pretend that she made it to sixty-six hearing nary a word of bad about the dead and rotting Fidel. Or, she could double-down and say, “Damn straight I really dig that old dictator!”
Bass chose the former because it made her look slightly less horrible than the latter.
But neither option makes her a particularly good choice for Vice President of the United States.
I mean, how do you sell that to American voters?
“Karen Bass for VP: she’s not a dictator-loving crank; she’s just deeply stupid!”
Though, I’m guessing Karen has to claim ignorance a lot.
In fact, when the Daily Caller revealed that in 2010 Karen went to the Church of Scientology and sang its praises, Bass once again played the “Gosh, I didn’t know that” card saying that, at the time she gave the speech she had no idea about the allegations made against Scientology.
No wonder the Biden Team had to delay Joe’s big Veep announcement.
The campaign painted itself into a corner by vowing to select a running mate, not based on experience and competence, but on skin color and gender. And now they’re stuck choosing from a shortlist of duds all of whom come with more baggage than a Samsonite store.
