“Is Tulsi Gabbard for Real? America Is Ready for a Genuine Peace Candidate

“What Tulsi Gabbard is accomplishing might be measured by the enemies that are already gathering and are out to get her.”

 

Tulsi Gabbard is most appealing American politician to come along in a long time.

Not extreme enough in social/economic matters to be rejected automatically by the bulk of Americans, who are, in fact, very conservative and tradition-bound. Yet offering serious thoughts and efforts about peace.

And the courage to have actually done so basic a thing as talk to people in “the West’s” deliberately created hell of Syria.

And she even comes “packaged” as a veteran.

She would be hard to dream up. The more predictable political challenger types in America are represented by Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, both about as inauthentic as true liberals as it comes. Bone-marrow establishment, both of them.

But her chance of having any impact on the ferocious face of war America displays to the world literally is zero.

The size and resources of America’s war party are almost beyond comprehension.

Were by some miracle she to become the candidate of the Democratic Party, either of two destinies would await her.

First, the Obama destiny, where a sometimes sandal-wearing young man bravely eschews the de rigueur American flag lapel pin during his campaign but ends up bombing people for every day of his eight years and indeed ends up adopting the dumb American flag lapel pin.

Or, second, the Kennedy destiny where a man who genuinely did threaten aspects of the American death machine left a fair part of his head splattered across a street in Dallas.

Anything else is just fantasy.

These are very powerful and devious people running the show in America. Anyone with her views on their wars would quickly be made to feel as embattled and threatened as President Maduro.

They’ll let someone like Gabbard speak for a while to reinforce the happy notion that America is somehow something that it’s not. After all, that’s what the press busies itself doing twenty-four hours a day.

But to actually take power and use it for peace? That’s like expecting a miracle. And I have it on good authority that miracles never extend beyond the confines of a sweet childish imagination.

Warren is a phony.

Truly among the worst, and America produces so many of them. After all, it is the native land of P. T. Barnum.
