Kamala Harris Says India is ‘Oldest Democracy in the World…’

Sen. Kamala Harris falsely said that India is the “oldest democracy in the world,” but that’s a title that belongs to the United States.

Kamala Harris doesn’t have enough historical understanding to know that Britain controlled India until the middle of the last century even with having Indian relatives. That’s pretty bad.

This is Gary Johnson’s Aleppo level of idiocy.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) falsely stated on Wednesday night that India is the “oldest democracy in the world,” a title that actually belongs to the United States.

Harris, whose mother Shyamala Harris is from India, made the remark after she was asked by the Washington Post‘s Jonathan Capehart how “being half Indian-American” shaped her “identity and political views.”

“You know, India is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, democracy in the world,” Harris said.

The statement has no basis in fact. The Republic of India wasn’t established as a democracy until 1950 after it won independence from Great Britain. Its first democratic election, which took several months to conduct, was not completed until February 1952, just under 67 years ago. More
