Gabbard is anti-Hillary, but still far-left fringe
[The Washington Times] - Democratic candidate for president Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, in a widely watched Twitter-posted YouTube video, condemned the "rich, powerful" gang of elites who surround Hillary Clinton and demand Democrats either "toe the line" or stay silent.
That’s good. But it’s not exactly an "enemy of my enemy is a friend" moment; Gabbard, after all, has some far-left and outlandish views. She’s a progressive who has some serious flip-flops on policy in her background that shouldn’t be overlooked simply because she’s taking on Hillary, and hard.
Still: We can enjoy the anti-Clinton moment for a moment, yes?
Here’s what Gabbard wrote, on Twitter: "Hillary & her gang of rich, powerful elite are going after me to send a msg to YOU: ’Shut up, toe the line, or be destroyed.’ But we, the people, will NOT be silenced. Join me in taking our Democratic Party back & leading a govt of, by & for the people!"
In the accompanying video, Gabbard said that she had been warned in 2016 that her endorsement of Sen. Bernie Sanders ‐ who went against Clinton for the party’s nomination for president ‐ would "be the end" of her political career.
