    Tulsi Gabbard has put her life on the line to defend this country. People can disagree on issues, but it is outrageous for anyone to suggest that Tulsi is a foreign asset.

     

     

    Sanders: ‘Outrageous’ to suggest Gabbard ‘is a foreign asset’

     

    https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/466800-sanders-outrageous-to-suggest-gabbard-is-a-foreign-asset

     

    Sen. Sanders lashed out Monday at critics of fellow 2020 presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) including Hillary Clinton, after Clinton and others suggested that Gabbard is a “foreign asset” for Russia amid reports that Moscow’s online bots and trolls are supporting her campaign.

    In a tweet, the Vermont senator and runner-up for the 2016 Democratic nomination called such accusations “outrageous,” pointing Gabbard’s background as a military veteran.

      One of the things I really like about Bernie is that he tends to scrutinize and evaluate everything pretty thoroughly, in order to make wise decisions.

      It’s always smart to make sure that there are no rocks in the water before you jump off the cliff into the swimming hole.

    Line in the sand drawn!……I hope this wasn’t a scheme all along to draw Bernie into this battle by supporting Tulsi so they can now label them BOTH Russian assets.

        Oh, I agree with all that OB…….they want to pull Bernie away from his messaging thats winning hearts throughout……but now that he’s crossed into this fight, he and his campaign have to be prepared to use a bazooka when the time comes against the Queen considering he just called her a LIAR. This will escalate and I want to make sure Bernie won’t come up short by allowing the Queen to run roughshod over him…….He crossed over and he needs to be prepared to stir up charges from 2016……this will get messy and ugly if it escalates through Clinton hacks.

          The tactics are too much. One sees a direct HIT against everyone living in a Democracy… backed up by bullshit.

          I will not stand for anyone using power to continue feeding us a narrative. Who’s version of Trump are we supposed to settle for? I decided to give Tulsi a bit more money this donation than I did Bernie.

    Outstanding. Wonder how long it will take for the calls for a purge of Sanders supporters at SV to start? Nothing yet. Give it a couple of hours. @deadpool @landofenchantment @sffh Get ready for new members.

    Edit to say it didn’t take Bernie long. It was a serious decision, and I don’t blame him for taking the time to think about it when he had the time. Isn’t that what we want in a President, someone who thinks things through?

    Edit again: Bernie’s tweet just went up over there. @satan you should really enjoy this one.

      Hi ob,

      A quick dive into SV land shows the threads condemning Bernie have already begun.  And as expected, the responses are predictable and trite.

        I feel like I have always had the same politics I always have but feel the party around me has changed over the 8 years & 2016 campaign. Now I feel marginalized for the same views I always have.

        I don’t know why I’m drawing a line here but Hillary Clinton crossed a line. I can’t go back to that place. Hillary Clinton owes Tulsi an apology and she should give one to Jill Stein as well.

          The “Line in the Sand” moment for me, was when Hillary and her ilk tried to tie Bernie to being against Sandy Hook, and for policies that brought about such a tragedy.

          There will be no apology from that…

          And her supporters that excuse, enable or applaud these actions of her are malignant.

    Glad Bernie spoke up.

    Clinton should regret making such a ridiculous claim that Tulsi is a Russian asset. There is absolutely no basis for such a claim and certainly no evidence that would corroborate it. For a former US Secretary of State this is extremely unprofessional.

      They’ve (SV) revived the ‘anti-gay cult’ theme too.

       

      And there’s a thread about russians posting at SV too.

      ‘they are everywhere.  it’s hard to know how deeply they have infiltrated our society’

      apparently, if there’s a post about tulsi at SV the russians show up

      Reds, everywhere!  Under the bed & in this thread!!!!!  There’s zillions of em!  (ps: russia’s population is about 1/3 that of the US).

      Russians shut down SV in 2016.  I presume that was after hillary failed to get elected…

      It’s so confusing.  They’re trying to push people to tulsi, to trump, to pepe the frog.

      They’re delusional. imho.  Or at least delusional enough to think the ‘russia!’ is all-powerful & just to contact it is to become a tulsi, trump or putin-bot

      I concur! Though it’s good to throw a lifeline out to SV refugees on occasion.

      I’m glad Bernie voiced his opinion on this, knowing that he’s going up against the Clinton machine. I think the tide is turning against the Clintons, their Russophobia, and their corruption.

    I think that whether or not Bernie spoke about Tulsi, he was going to be called a Russian agent or asset or whatever at some point.

    Maybe it’s like that poem, “First they came for Tulsi, and I did not speak up because I was not Tulsi.  Then they came for me. . . “

    Oh my fucking Former Employer the reactions over at SV are hysterical…..

    And if we really want to go there, I’ll note that Hillary Clinton ALSO put her life on the line for her country – as evidenced by the Secret Service protection she’s had for the past 27 years and will have for the rest of her life. No, being First Lady is not as dangerous as being in combat and being in the military is not the same as being in the White House BUT if service to the country that puts one’s life in danger inoculates a person from being held accountable for anything they do in life, Hillary has also earned the right to use HER service to the country as a shield against political criticism.

    Of course, Hillary would never do that because she’s not a craven political opportunist.

    Unholy shit….. Hillary served one term in the Senate, and one term as Secretary of State, and the only two things she did in BOTH jobs were: 1)Run for President (and lose TWICE) and 2) Advance the PNAC Forever War Agenda. And she did this while claiming to represent a state she never lived in for one second of her pathetic life before 2000.

    Yeah, not a craven political opportunist…. and I’m the first chair harp player in Heaven’s symphony orchestra.

    I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.

      I’m not reading anything over there but I thought this was sarcasm comparing SS protection to combat medic experience (which is among the most dangerous MOS though not sure about Officers. In my MOS officers mostly did paperwork and planning while enlisted did most of the work in the field.

        @jonlp Unfortunately, that wasn’t sarcasm. They really believe that shit, because they want to. And you’re absolutely right about medics being in some of the most dangerous combat spots. Usually, when you see someone killed in Iraq or Afghanistan who is in the Navy, that means they were a medical corpsman assigned to the Marines.

      I looked over there (make sure y’all look in Primaries as it’s forbidden to post about the candidates in GD right now) and only happened across that thread and quote. Now, as in the past, they just generate too much to read or even skim for me to bother. But that last line in the quote:

      Of course, Hillary would never do that because she’s not a craven political opportunist.

      Isn’t that considered a classic example of projection? Sure, that isn’t a Hillary quote, but it reads the same way.

      ‘Cause that's what it would be. "Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death!" Students with beards, (mimes demonstrating with picket signs) "Tea and cake or death! Tea and cake or death! Little Red Cookbook! Little Red Cookbook!" ‘Cause, "Cake or death?" That's a pretty easy question. Anyone could answer that.

    She has a big backing of Hillary supporters. If she doesn’t denounce Hillary’s remarks then I would prefer to see Tulsi as Bernie’s VP (over Warren).

    If the Democratic establishment red baits Sanders, they’ll no longer have a party, but a suicide pact. Williamson, Yang, and Beto, to be purged as well?

    Are they planning to merge with the never Trump Republicans? Because they’re looking to excise the younger, and progressive, voters by their insanity.

    Yesterday Rachel was–as usual–all in with Russia!x3. Apparently FaceBook purged a bunch of Russian troll accounts which delivered propaganda “designed to promote Sanders and damage the front runner candidate, Joe Biden”. Yes, she actually said that. DNC propaganda vs Russian propaganda is like some kind of MMA cage match. Mostly be because, just like the MMA…I don’t give a shit.

      we are a bunch of pod people who can immediately have their minds taken over by anything thrown up in media

      sounds like a pot/kettle/black kind of thing, accuse others of what you do thing

    Good for Bernie,doing the right thing.

    It is absolutely appalling that there are people out there who think Hillary was just fine,correct,just dandy to do this.That the wife of a draft dodger can slander a veteran and it’s just terrific.Mostly people over 62,television junkies,are doing this but still.

    What kind of people must these be?

    I was not surprised yesterday when I heard the panel on The View praising Hillary and Her remarks as they condemned Tulsi. Those women on The View are so predictable.

    I watched The View because I was curious what they had to say about Bernie’s Rally. Afterall, The View studio is in NYC. Nothing. They didn’t mention it at all.

      The fact that every single woman on The View’s panel is each worth more than $10 Million – at the LOW end – has nothing to do with their pro-neoliberalism/Third Way bias.  :sarcasm:

    Good to see him do the right thing like he usually does, even if it took a little longer than it should have. I thought him remaining silent was a mistake and out of character, so this is good news.
