For hitting Hillary, media blacks out Tulsi Gabbard campaign

How dare the Army combat vet have a mind of her own.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is not your typical Democrat. Sure, she buys into a lot of their socialistic nonsense. But then she wouldn’t be a modern Dem if she didn’t.

However, she has had some good words for the president/does not suffer from TDS, was not for impeachment, and, here’s the worst thing for Dems, she is in a running feud with Hillary Clinton on several fronts.

That is a sin her fellow Democrats and their lapdog media just can’t abide. So the media has spiked her, blacked her out, refused to cover her. Hence her dismal showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Now while I have no enthusiastic brief for the telegenic Gabbard, fair is fair. Also, any enemy of Hillary is an indirect pal of mine. Like Churchill said, “If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.”

Here’s what she said about it on Fox Business. Voters “really haven’t had a chance to hear my message or to learn about the background and experience I bring to serve as commander-in-chief because there’s been an almost total corporate media blackout since the day that I started running for president.”

Do you think Tulsi Gabbard is the most moderate Democrat candidate?

She continued.

“I am the candidate that’s bringing this unifying message that’s not based on hate, not based on hate for Trump or hate for the other party or hate for any one group or another but is building this coalition of support that’s centered around love of country.”

Wait. What?

Did she actually use the term “love of country?” And she’s a Democrat?! Can you see why many of her fellow Dems and the media loathe her and can’t let her message get out? She also said she doesn’t base every hour of her waking existence on hating the president? Oh whoa. Get the bonnie lass a GOP registration card! Granted, blue Hawaii variety.

Combine those words with the run and gun with Hillary and her persona non grata status with the media is not only understandable, but expected. So across the barricades, as it used to be before the Dems lost their minds, we can throw Gabbard a jaunty salute in recognition of her sanity and patriotism. Then we can get back to the business of beating her party to an electoral pulp.
