      I don’t know why he’d be stunned — she’s been pretty consistently pro-war. At least she tries to distinguish between the religion of Islam and the politicized version of the religion, though the point seems to have been missed by the hosts.

      On a side note, this is the first time I’ve watched the new Rising. OMG. These have to be two of the most uncharismatic, robotic hosts I’ve seen in some time. I’ve seen past interviews with Ryan Grim where he was at least somewhat engaging. But wow. I had to set the replay to 1.5x and even then it was painful to listen to them.

      Lindsey Graham wearing a Tulsi skin suit.

      For anyone willing to look beneath the surface, she’s always been a bit of a shady character with a lot of contradictions, but wow, what a way to respond when asked about your government murdering civilians. Antarctica level coldness.

      Tulsi always made a distinction between opposing “regime change wars” but not “the war on terror”. But America has been using the war on terror as a cover for regime change wars so it’s hard to separate them.

      I can’t stand to watch the new Rising hosts, for much the same reasons as @alcina expressed. Talk about wooden! They might be good for insomnia, I suppose.

      Anyway, if Tulsi is still defending the War on Terror, which was never anything of the sort, but a series of imperialist wars for profit, I don’t see how she can be attractive to any progressive who is antiwar. Clearly, she is not. I don’t know what kind of game she is playing here, but she sure did make Tucker Carlson look reasonable in comparison, which is saying something.

      …and that cult’s hatred of Islam rivals that of the Israeli Likudist types. She’s also a big fan of Hindu supremacist India PM Modi, who also has a NuttyYahoo level hatred of all things Muslim.

      The cult was also the source of her well known past homophobia, which she claims to have renounced in recent years. Maybe that’s true, but if so, she might reconsider some other doctrines she learned from them.

      Just another example of how no version of FundaMENTALism is really any better than the others.

        I don’t know about any of that.

        But I got the impression quite some time ago that she wasn’t opposed to US militarism on principle. I don’t like the veneration of military personnel by political leaders either. I would have never voted for her.

        I consider anyone who embraces the market economics orthodoxy, to be an ignorant fundamentalist who rejects the most basic of scientific principles, like the impossibility of unlimited growth.

        It happened in an Indian state of which he was the governor at the time, he knew about it, did nothing to stop it and didn’t even criticize it to my knowledge. At least hundreds of Muslims were killed by Hindu mobs in what would have been called a pogrom if it had happened in Russia and the victims been Jews.

        Plus, Modi is also neoliberal slime. Yet Tulsi likes him. Most disquieting.
