Tulsi Gabbard doesn't want to arm terrorists, and Dems hate her for it
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Sen. Rand Paul introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act on Friday.
The bipartisan legislation (H.R.608 and S.532) aims to prohibit any federal agency from using taxpayer dollars to provide weapons, cash, intelligence, or any support to al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorist groups. It would also prohibit the government from funneling money and weapons through other countries that are directly or indirectly supporting terrorists.
Huh. Don't give weapons and financing to blood-thirsty terrorists that want to kill us. That sounds like a pretty good idea to me.
You would think that progressives might get behind Gabbard and her sound moral, common sense platform.
But you would be wrong.
You see, it's OK to be "pragmatic" with your values, but not with Republicans.
So if the Dems are arming al-Qaeda terrorists, and Republicans oppose arming al-Qaeda terrorists, then this is a value you are supposed to sacrifice to be a good Democrat.
Or more to the point, Dems support regime change in Syria, eventhough the only armed opposition are terrorists. Therefore, we must support terrorists because Dems support regime change in Syria.
Not doing so make you racist, islamophobic, a Trump-lover, and an all-around traitor.
Traitor against whom?
There's something disturbing about Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard has something of a dissident stance within the Democratic party. She resigned from the DNC during the primaries over claims of bias against Bernie Sanders. She very conspicuously met with President-elect Trump a couple weeks ago. She's very critical of President Obama's foreign policy which she calls a "neo-con" foreign policy.
Oh yeah. Traitor to the DNC, which is the worst sort of traitor.
