What happened in Bolivia is a coup. Period. The United States and other countries should not be interfering in the Bolivian people's pursuit of self-determination and right to choose their own government.

Good! I was becoming concerned.

I wasn’t. I can’t imagine her being pro-Coup.
Being against this sort of thing is her best quality.

I wasn’t. Like Bernie, she seems to often think a lot about a subject, and consider the facts, before making a judgment on how to proceed.
Reasoned judgment, an opinion with factual evidence is very good quality in a leader. Always best to check the water before you jump in the lake.
The following is not directed at you in any way whatsoever, OB.
For those Vichy New Democrats accusing Tulsi of cozying up to the RW:
Why so quiet about the fascist coup in Bolivia? The coup in Bolivia, as well as continued economic oppression of the people of Venezuela, is about as RW as it gets. Tulsi and Bernie speak out in support of democracy and the people, and y’all are dead silent. Could it be that you believe that wealthy private interest fascist imperialist dictatorships, and oppression of those who are not wealthy, is preferable to democracy, justice and equality?
Because that would be the official RW professional corporate whore opinion. And you have the hypocritical unmitigated audacity to complain about Tulsi cozying up to the RW?
Tulsi: “What happened in Bolivia is a coup. Period. The United States and other countries should not be interfering in the Bolivian people’s pursuit of self-determination and right to choose their own government.”
Bernie: “I oppose the intervention of Bolivia’s security forces in the democratic process and their repression of Indigenous protesters. When the military intervened and asked President Evo Morales to leave, in my view, that’s called a coup,”
Trump: “The resignation yesterday of Bolivian President Evo Morales is a significant moment for democracy in the Western Hemisphere. After nearly 14 years and his recent attempt to override the Bolivian constitution and the will of the people, Morales’s departure preserves democracy and paves the way for the Bolivian people to have their voices heard. The United States applauds the Bolivian people for demanding freedom and the Bolivian military for abiding by its oath to protect not just a single person, but Bolivia’s constitution. These events send a strong signal to the illegitimate regimes in Venezuela and Nicaragua that democracy and the will of the people will always prevail. We are now one step closer to a completely democratic, prosperous, and free Western Hemisphere.”
Vichy New Democrats: *crickets*
Silence = Consent in this case. Inquiring minds are compelled to believe that Vichy New Democrats are corporate whores who stand with Trump in his support of the fascist coup in Bolivia. There is never a wrong time to do the right thing.
“A lie doesn't become truth, wrong doesn't become right, and evil doesn't become good, just because it's accepted by a majority.” ~ Booker T. Washington
The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.” Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.

Good on Tulsi & Bernie for calling it what it is. I’m so sick of this imperialist bullshit from the fascist GOP and Vichy Dems.
