I cannot believe Hillary Clinton unlike President Barack Obama has involved herself in the Democratic Primary race with such a vile attack on Tulsi Gabbard. I cannot believe she does not know that her attack will destroy much of what those of us who have been working to unite those who unknowingly supported a corrosive Neo-Liberalism versus true Progressiveness.
Tulsi Gabbard falsely accused
“They’re also going to do third-party again,” Hillary Clinton said recently. “And I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”
Tulsi Gabbard responded in a tweet that said the following.
Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose. It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.
But there is an Establishment method to the madness. Suffice it to say it has to do with the decline of Joe Biden which was inevitable and the ascent of Elizabeth Warren with Bernie Sanders still very viable. The facade of many in the party’s leadership is peeling off. My hope is that the rank & file will see the truth and coalesce appropriately.
