Tulsi Gabbard vs Pete Buttigieg

A week old thing, but I thought readers of The Duran might like it.

Tulsi Gabbard vs Pete Buttigieg in the latest Dem debate.

Tulsi nailed Buttigieg for saying he’d send US troops over in Mexico to “fight” the cartels. Clean-face Pete argued a strawman, saying “You think anyone supports the US invading Mexico?” Then he attacked Gabbard for meeting with Assad, a “murderous dictator.” The crowd applauded and cheered in typical dumb herd mentality. Gabbard retorted pertinently enough and won the argument.

Personally, I think nice language is used too much on the tele. I’d prefer some real frowns, some curse words, and shouting based on real issues and real indignation. Also, in parliament, I’d like to see MPs throwing punches and kicks, people wrestling with each other for what they believe in. That would be real democracy in action. No rigging. No political whoring around. Elected representatives in de facto opposition.

Anyway, the mainstream media continues to paint everything Gabbard says on foreign policy as Kremlin speech. They police her tone, her expressions, but they never honestly combat her policy views. Russiagater Michael Moore is no exception. He’s in league with the MSNBC smear campaign against Tulsi and the pro-regime change operation in Syria. I also think Dore was way too soft on Moore’s bs. Simply saying, “shame on you” is weak… But kudos to Jimmy for calling out the “brutal dictator Assad” talking point as pure nonsense.

she’s the only sane candidate the Dems have in this election. The corrupt media will do whatever it can to prevent her from gaining any traction

Instead of Tulsi continuing to repeat, “Yes, Assad is a brutal dictator,” she should say:
Your corporate media calls him dictator, over 90% of Syrians call him their beloved President, so who are we to believe?

Where did Gabbard say the line you put in quotation marks? She definitely didn’t say that in this video. I agree that she could have said Assad isn’t a dictator, at the very least, but she didn’t address Assad at all, and she definitely didn’t say “yes, he’s a brutal dictator.”

I donated $102 to Tulsi Gabbard, I hope she wins the White house, but, I also have a burden to enlighten people that Tulsi has some problems.
She said it shortly after she destroyed Kamala Harris.

There is no one running for President of USA that has not called President Assad of Syria a brutal dictator. And that is why we will continue to be an expansion crazy Empire until at least 2024. For Assad is the most beloved and popular President on earth with over 90% popular support.

I like some of what Tulsi says but she needs to answer some questions. Is she now or has she ever been a member of the CFR? She blames the Saudis for 9-11, but isn’t she forgetting a couple other complicit parties, i.e. the CIA and Israeli Mossad?

Good article .I love Jimmy Dore’s shows he usually nails it so well .
Tulsi would be a real president for the US with even the possibility ,although small ,to turn thing around for the US .She shines among all the rest but they are having a hard time giving her the time of day ,let alone non partisanship .
