“Why the Democratic Party Is So Fed Up with Tulsi Gabbard”
My take on an 11/22/19 Yahoo News article—
Pete Buttigieg did say he was willing to send our troops to Mexico to fight the cartels. Trump said much the same after some Mormon missionaries were murdered there. Only Mayor Pete had to walk back the comment when the history of US-Mexico relations was explained to him. Talk about naïve!
And Kamala Harris was indeed swimming in lies and smears and innuendo. Rep. Gabbard has heard the charges before: that she is a Russian asset for opposing regime-change wars; that she is an Assad apologist for trying to research peaceful solutions to the illegal regime-change war in Syria; that her criticism of St. Obama was unwarranted when his warmongering is well established (he came into office with a Peace Prize, Guantánamo open and two wars; left office with Guantánamo still open and seven wars ongoing); that merely talking with the enemy is tantamount to alliance.
This was the president who, with his Secretary of State and hand-picked successor, turned Libya into a failed state and subverted the elected government in Honduras. This is the party, after all, that says Trump is a threat to democracy, but voted to reauthorize the USA Patriot Act, anyway, continuing to “resist” Trump by giving him frightening surveillance authority and other powers inimical to a free society. Tulsi Gabbard, on the other hand, had the courage to quit the corrupt DNC and support the only candidate who is not beholden to the donor class.
So go ahead, be “fed up” with Tulsi Gabbard: she will pronounce your eulogy.
