re: US Politics, reference to racism and homophobia.
@AnnieGal I also don't like Tulsi but I think it's brave of Bernie to stand up for her
US Politics, reference to racism and homophobia.
And just to make it clear, I don't like Tulsi, I just think that the rest of Democratic establishment should be held to the same standard. If Tulsi's history of racism and homophobia disqualify her, then same should apply to Biden, Kamala, Buttigieg, and every other candidate with a similar history.
US Politics, reference to racism and homophobia.
Neoliberals: Tulsi was an advocate for Conversion therapy. That disqualifies her, there's no coming back from that.
Also Neoliberals: *Are more than willing to look past Biden's segregationism and voting for DOMA, as well as Kamala's keeping trans women from receiving treatment.*
"The Alt-Right Playbook: How to Radicalize a Normie"
This may be one of the most interesting video of the series so far. I strongly, strongly recommend every people who hare or have been in an online community to watch it. It gives a lot of incite on how the recruitment process for the all right is working.
You have Marianne Williamson with her anti vax shit, you have John Delaney's borderline fascist "mandatory National service" plan (yes he is still running somehow).
So all that shit is okay, yet they draw the line at Tulsi because they still listen to corporate media that tells them what to think?
Holy shit neoliberalism is a fucking cancer.
It's not just Biden either. You have Mayor Pete who expressed concerns with Chelsea Manning's sentence being cut. Meanwhile Tulsi has stated support pardoning Snowden and Manning.
Enough has already been said about Kamala Harris's record as attorney general. You also have Beto O'Rourke who called for police going door to door to confiscate guns, which Julian Castro pointed out would see a spike in police violence.
Tulsi has a lot of shady shit, but it's awfully shallow minded to give her shit despite the fact that so many other candidates have abhorrent records.
Enough has been said about Biden with his problems touching young girls, his attempts to invoke his son's death to bash medicare for all, him helping Republicans get elected to congress, him defending segregationists. Say what you want about Tulsi, but the worst parts of her record did not occur during her campaign for office.
What gets me most about the anti Tulsi outrage isn't that she doesn't warrant any criticism, but just how selective it all is. I've been looking through the social media of the candidates on my progressive candidate list and I had to remove one because they had a post talking gushing all over Nancy Pelosi and how she looks "Presidential" because she says orange man bad, while also saying he doesn't support Bernie sanders but isn't closing the door on any candidates except for Tulsi.
It means a lot, and I just wish I could adopt every one of you who is where I used to be, and love and protect you all. I just want you all to know that your appearance, or your struggles or position in life is not a statement of your self worth, nor is your level of fame or achievement. And I know there are so many of you that are hurting right now, and I wish I could be there in person and give all of you a big hug.
I've lost count of the amount of cute girls with low self esteem who are convinced they are ugly and undesirable, either cis or trans. As a result, it often seems like girls like me who present an air of confidence, love, and power tend to inspire fanatical devotion. I remember feeling that way about my ex Atma. And yet, here I am now to the point where I'm meeting so many amazing people who look up to me the same way I look up to her.
