To her credit, she told him to fuck off. (ETA - I realized this is from February, BUT it’s still relevant)
If you’re thinking, “I dislike Gabbard but I didn’t think she was a white supremacist,” this will explain the endorsement:
Duke, who was head of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s, posted a set of tweets endorsing Gabbard’s 2020 presidential run and changed the background of his Twitter account Monday, which boasts more than 50,000 followers. A “Tulsi Gabbard for President” banner features the banner tagline, “Finally a candidate who will actually put America First rather than Israel First!”
“Tulsi Gabbard is currently the only Presidential candidate who doesn’t want to send White children off to die for Israel,” Duke tweeted Monday evening...
I dislike her but I’m not going to blame her for this, especially since we all know a certain Adult President who couldn’t do as much as clearly reject that endorsement. HOWEVER, it’s important, I think, that we keep a watch on the right-wingers who are propping her up and ask ourselves why (I posted this in a comment the other day, but she was on Tucker Carlson the other night discussing media bias against her, based on a “whistleblowing” CNN video produced and edited by none other than Project Veritas). Here she is with Tucker Carlson again pushing back on the Russian asset comment Hillary made (which is totally fair for her to do, but why is she going on Fox News hmmm?).
She is using her face and a right wing audience to raise money. She is allowing Fox News, propaganda machine of the president, to profit off of her presence. She can fight with Hillary all she wants, but I certainly am not cool with her doing it using the right wing propaganda machine.
I hope she isn’t about to be a big fucking problem. Silver lining? Maybe some people who are disenchanted with Trump would vote for her as a third party candidate.
From my Facebook feed today, a lengthy post about someone getting in a fight with her parents, but had this little nugget tucked in there:
