This is me not caring about the Democratic race for the 2020 presidential nomination—not caring so hard that I'm writing about it again.
To be more precise, I am writing yet another post about Tulsi Gabbard, the candidate whose rhetoric thus far best embodies progressive ideals—yes, better than Bernie in that regard. And she delivers that rhetoric so calmly and smoothly. I'm beginning to wonder if she ever raises her voice to be heard over a cheering crowd.
This morning, inspired by the clip of Rep. Gabbard on The View, I took to Twitter and hammered out a nine-part thread. Rather than link to the tweets or embed them, I figured I should preserve them here. As of this afternoon, to my complete lack of surprise, Gabbard has yet to respond. She and her crew keep a rather busy schedule.
This was also inspired in part by a recent reminder in a secret Facebook group: The author of the post referred to Gabbard as a "tool of empire" and warned that as long as she remains a Democrat she will play a sheep-dog role in the campaign after the party nominates yet another centrist warmonger.
Figueredo has a lot to say about this View segment; Kulinski has even more. The first portion of her appearance is below the fold.
Aloha, @TulsiGabbard. A few disagreements on policy aside, I consider you the best declared presidential candidate as of now. That said, can we talk about your overuse of the phrase "regime-change wars"?
