Yup, our beloved Democratic party VP nominee, Kamala Harris, is proud of Jacob Blake Jr., according to a relayed message from Blake’s attorney, Benjamin Crump.
Blake is our latest poster child for the Black Lives Matter “movement” after his involvement in a police confrontation on August 23rd in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Shots were fired, resulting in Blake’s injuries and paralyzation from the waist down.
Blake was wanted for sexual assault charges and, during the police confrontation, Blake chose to take that opportune moment to reach for a knife in his vehicle. That is when the gunshots commenced.
At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct,” according to the Associated Press. A knife was found in his car, Wisconsin authorities later revealed.
Blake Jr. spoke publicly for the first time on Saturday night, releasing a video from his hospital bed in which he spoke about pain from his injuries, adding: “Please, I’m telling you, change your lives out there.”
He also appeared in court via video on Friday, pleading not guilty to the pending charges against him, which are not related to the Aug. 23 shooting. As local NBC affiliate WTMJ-TV noted:
According to a criminal complaint filed in July, Blake is accused of sexually assaulting a woman back in May. The woman told police that Blake also took her car keys and a debit card from her before fleeing. Blake was also charged with disorderly conduct – domestic abuse and criminal trespass – domestic abuse.
Now, take a look at the tweet below. You’ll be happy to know just how low the bar has become for being proud of someone.

Honestly, I’m much more interested to hear from Blake’s victims on these various issues he willingly got himself into.
I never saw a white cop shooting a black man. I saw a police officer protecting himself from a resistant criminal who showed the intent to harm said police officer.
Geez, Kamala Harris sure does suck at picking out who the hero is… she’d REALLY suck at directing Marvel movies. Don’t even bother quizzing her on them.
Kamala Harris and Joe Biden see these criminals as meal tickets to fulfill their narrative so that they can reach their own goals. Congratulations, you’ve won a couple of naive votes because you continue to play this ghost of a race card. She even saw Biden as a sexual deviant when they were competing against one another, but now she wants something from him, so she’s turning a blind eye.
Additionally, let’s hear from the sexual assault victim. The media is radio silent about that though, huh?
