Hillary Clinton just went on David Plouffe’s podcast and accused Tulsi Gabbard — a combat veteran, soldier and Major in the Army National Guard — of being “groomed” to be a “Russian asset”.
When Tulsi said on that debate stage Tuesday night “when I look out at our country, I do not see deplorables, I see fellow Americans,” she was talking abou this. She was standing up to a corrupt party elite that holds exactly this kind of contempt for We, the People.
The utter disdain for the truth — and refusal to face their own failures and hypocrisy — shown by establishment warmongers and their corporate media lackeys is not only insulting, it’s a threat to our democracy. From media blackouts, to baseless smears about Tulsi’s religion and progressive record, to outright despicable attacks by the New York Times, CNN, Neera Tanden and now Hillary Clinton on Tulsi’s loyalty to the country she risked her life to serve: Hillary Clinton and her establishment cronies have their knives out for Tulsi, using her as an example in their campaign to intimidate and silence those who dare to stand up for peace.
We can’t let them win. This outrageous attack is not just on Tulsi, it’s an attack on ALL of US — they are attacking Tulsi because she is calling for an end to the regime change wars and new Cold War that fuel the military industrial complex. If they can do this to Tulsi — a soldier, a veteran and a Congresswoman — they can do this to anyone who stands up for peace.
Here’s the truth: They are against Tulsi, against us, because they know they can’t control us.
They want a puppet in the White House who will blindly carry out their decades-long failed regime change foreign policy, who will maintain the corrupt and ineffective status quo.
Tulsi is not that candidate. She’s our candidate: The only candidate willing to take on the corrupt DNC elite who cost us the election in 2016. The only candidate who knows the cost of war, and is ready to serve as our commander in chief on Day One.
