Liberal Senator and potential 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris issued a full-throated defense of her brand of “identity politics” over the weekend, saying she “won’t be silenced” while standing up for “equal opportunity” for all Americans.
Harris was speaking at the Netroots Nation Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana when she called-out those critical of “identity politics,” claiming the phrase was simply used to try and “shut us up.”

“I have a problem, guys, with that phrase, ‘identity politics,’” Harris said. “Because let’s be clear, when people say that, it’s a pejorative. That phrase is used to divide, and it is used to distract. Its purpose is to minimize and marginalize issues that impact all of us. It is used to try and shut us up.”
“We won’t be silent about immigrant rights. We won’t be silent about a woman’s right to control her own body. We will not be silent about equal opportunity and equal justice under the law,” she said.
