Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, has come under fire after her social media campaigning was found to be raising millions of dollars to send to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
Emhoff was sending money to the same country controlled by Hamas, which launched a barbaric invasion of Israel on Oct. 7.
Since the invasion, there has been a sharp uptick in anti-Semitism, most notably with colleges coming out against Israel and Jews.
Ella Emhoff took to her massive social media following to help promote a curious cause.
In a since-removed Instagram “promotion,” Emhoff pushed funds toward the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund on her personal account.
While helping children in need is a noble cause, and looking at the Ohio-based nonprofit’s website, they appear genuine in their aim.
The homepage features a scrolling carousel of images showing the humanitarian aid they’re sending to Gaza.
While all this is totally fine, the issue is what happens to the aid when it arrives.
While some of it will (hopefully) go to assisting actual people in need, what guarantee is there that it won’t fall into the hands of Hamas?

Not surprising considering her step-mom is one of the most incompetent people in Washington DC.

New Jersey GOP Rep. Jeff Van Drew reacted to the news of Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter was attempting to send funds to Gaza.
That potential to further arm Hamas was not lost on New Jersey GOP Rep. Jeff Van Drew.
“It’s of tremendous concern and I find it abhorrent.”
“To be honest with you, I am kind of stunned by it. It’s disturbing to the maximum degree.”
Van Drew echoed similar sentiments earlier this month when he denounced Hamas’ calls for a global Jihad against Jewish people.
“This latest escalation of hate is absolutely abhorrent and must be condemned universally in the strongest possible terms,” Van Drew said.
“This call for violence endangers the lives of countless people worldwide at a time when the Jewish community is already faced with constant threats of terror.”
Another example of aid falling into the wrong hands is Ukraine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed that Western weapons intended for Ukraine have been sent to the Taliban.
If Putin’s claims are true, then the US is not only funding wars with taxpayers’ money, but also funding terrorism to facilitate an endless war.
Jürgen Stock, the head of Interpol, warned in 2022 that a portion of the steady stream of guns and heavy arms meant for Ukraine had made their way onto the black market.
