Yes, I know Tulsi is a Democrat. No, I’m not going to vote for her. Yes, she’s a total smokeshow. No, I won’t support her over Donald Trump. Yes, she knows how to fight against her critics. And that’s why we’re here. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, just with a hot Hawaiian chick who isn’t a crazy dirt-eating hippy demanding Americans give up their guns, cars, or freedom of speech. Which I can’t say for the rest of the Democrat field. Tulsi appeared on The View, and before she said much of anything, she first drew a paddle and spanked Joy Behar right on the keister. The beatings begin at the 1:10 mark. The reference to Hillary Clinton spewing the Russian narrative starts at the 3:14 mark.
Tulsi is right, to be called a Russian asset is an insult to her intelligence. It’s doubly insulting when Joy Behar insinuates Tulsi is an “unwitting” asset. As if Tulsi is just too stupid to realize Russians are somehow using her to… do what? I’m still not clear on that.
That clip of Joy calling Tulsi and unwitting asset is here:
So here’s why the Republicans, including some of us at Louder with Crowder, like Tulsi Gabbard: she isn’t a wimp. She went on The View with the seeming intention of telling those harpies they were wrong about her, insulted her as a candidate, a soldier, and a woman for echoing Hillary Clinton’s talking points. We just don’t see a lot of pushback or, for lack of a better term, brass pair on most politicians. Tulsi seems to have no problems telling her critics they’re wrong, how they’re wrong, and pushing back. I can respect that, even if sometimes she sounds a little to rehearsed in her stump speeches.
The GOP at large should take note. I’m not speaking necessarily about Dan Crenshaw, but some of the old GOP who still control the party. Tulsi just showed how to fight back against “the haters.” Don’t just tweet. Don’t just send out fundraising emails. And whatever you do, don’t just roll over. Go to where the critics are trash talking you and fight back. If Donald Trump showed America anything, it’s that America likes fighters.
I don’t agree with Tulsi on a great many things. But she is commanding some respect in how she handles herself in ways we’re not seeing from her fellow Democrats. Fair?
