Dan McAdams on the Media’s Hilarious Gabbard Narrative

by | Aug 2, 2019

These idiots. The best they can do is claim that Tulsi Gabbard is some kind of “Russian agent!” and that oh, no, “some rightwingers like her.” But what do these rightwingers or libertarians like about her? That she’s (relatively) antiwar! That is supposed to be self-evidently horrible?

But who’s buying that? The more obvious frame would be, “Wow, look how much more horrible liberals are on war now when you even have all these libertarians and conservatives who want to call it off.”

I think the Democratic Party voters of America do not agree and do not want to be worse than any rightwingers on war. Why should they? To not embarrass Harris?
