It’s been clear for awhile that the Democrats have it in for Tulsi Gabbard, possibly because she is considered to be too moderate. When she first announced her campaign, the media attacked her and claimed she was a Russian agent. Other candidates not favored by the Democrats, such as Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein, have also been accused of being Russian agents.
More recently, Google started blocking her ads from appearing on the web.
It appears her brutal takedown of SJW darling Kamala Harris was the final straw, as party bosses are now trying to exclude her from future debates:
Now, through the miracle of rule-rigging, the Democratic establishment has maneuvered to exact a price from her: No appearance at the next Democratic debate. No more taking down the next favorite.
Right after Tulsi finished the second debate, Kamala Harris really did utterly tumble in the polls. Democratic voters, now aware of her incredibly corrupt record as a prosecutor - endorsing false testimony, keeping people in jail beyond their terms, throwing the impoverished in prison for marijuana crimes while admitting she enjoyed the weed herself — are avoiding her now like a bad smell. Harris is damaged goods now, and she won’t recover. Tulsi, on the other hand, seems to be rising as a result.
For the Democratic establishment, that’s unforgiveable. They’re going to make Gabbard pay for that one by not allowing her a seat at next month’s Democratic debate.
The party bosses’ actions with respect to Gabbard have been so heavy-handed that I cannot help but wonder if this won’t enhance her popularity and let her claim the mantle of “rebel against the establishment.”
