Tulsi Gabbard’s recent comments about how impeachment hearings would tear our country apart has revived the Putin Puppet Meme against her. Just so you know: Evan McMullin started this bullshit after his failed bid for the presidency.
Months later, when Tulsi went on a fact-finding mission to Syria, Louise Mensch amplified this Meme for the huge audience she had captured with her “coming soon” promise of super secret RUMINT (unfounded rumors) that would see Trump hanged by the neck ’til dead for treason.
Louise continues to sling this lie, even though she has admitted that she has NO intel about Tulsi actually being a Putin Puppet. NONE whatsoever. But she keeps repeating it, and people kept believing it… out of sheer HOPE that some revelation will eventually materialize.
Even after the Mueller investigation was completed, and absolutely nothing was found that implicated Tulsi, Louise has failed to retract her libel. And the pundits still repeat her RUMINT.
The TRUTH about the Tulsi Putin Puppet story: It is a total lie, started by an ex-CIA Fuck-Head who is pissed at Tulsi because she does not want our country to continue arming terrorists in the Middle East, and was further propagated by a “journalist” who we now know is an Alt-Right Sock Puppet.
When I wrote this blog piece about Tulsi’s long fight for peace in Syria, I tried to remind people that the Democratic Party used to share Tulsi’s position, and I asked people to think about why and how Democrats have changed their views.
So… what happened to the Party of Peace?
Never Trump Republicans have fueled Democrats with a lust to see Trump hang for treason, and hijacked that contempt to push their own neoconservative narratives… convincing people that only traitors would practice diplomacy and desire peace. That’s what happened.
The new normal for Democrats seems to be war and intervention as first resort — hence the willingness to believe these unfounded rumors. Can we please bring back the old normal of advocating for peace and diplomacy first?
