Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she is “proud of him and how he is working through his pain,” according to attorney Benjamin Crump, who represents the Blake family. Blake was shot seven times from behind in a confrontation with Kenosha, Wisconsin, police on Aug. 23. He was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down. The incident sparked local riots, and Blake became the latest victim to be championed by the Black Lives Matter movement.
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.
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.

Kamala Harris just called Jacob Blake and his family "incredible". Jacob Blake is charged with sexually assaulting a woman and his dad Blake Sr. has posted deeply anti-Semitic comments dozens of times attacking Jews. This is who Kamala calls "incredible". pic.twitter.com/s6aEyjnEbr— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) September 7, 2020

Kamala Harris and Biden have both met with Jacob Blake and heaped praise on him. Neither one of them have met with the woman who says Blake abused her for years and raped her. They haven't even acknowledged her existence. Me Too is officially dead. It was never real to begin with— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) September 8, 2020
Jacob Blake raped his ex-girlfriend, trespassed on her property with a deadly weapon, stole her keys, resisted arrest, and endangered his kids life while fighting police.— Evan Kilgore 🇺🇸 (@EvanAKilgore) September 7, 2020
Somebody tell Kamala Harris he isn't a hero, he's a scumbag.
I'm trying to figure out why Kamala Harris is "proud" of Jacob Blake. Is it because of the sexual assault, criminal trespass & disorderly conduct charges or because he fought police, ran from them, and allegedly tried to grab a knife?— Scott Morefield (@SKMorefield) September 7, 2020
Leftists always idolize the finest people.
Twitter suspended the account of the aunt of the former girlfriend who Jacob Blake raped (and whose apartment he'd entered illegally before being shot by police) for posting this.
