Ex-KKK leader, infamous anti-Semite appears to endorse Gabbard for 2020

Ex-KKK leader, infamous anti-Semite appears to endorse Gabbard for 2020

The fact that Russian leadership happens to share a position on something doesn't mean that the position is invalid.

"Vladimir Putin considers America to be an enemy". It is indeed possible for two different leaders to show a preference for the exact same thing - such as not being bogged down in fruitless wars - but for different reasons.

Gabbard, who met with Assad during a 2017 "fact-finding" mission in Syria told MSNBC's Morning Joe Wednesday he is not an enemy of the us, despite the ruthless leader having used chemical weapons against opposition forces inside his own country.

Gabbard - a Democrat who resigned as Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in order to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for the party's presidential nomination back in 2016 - had first confirmed her own intent to join the 2020 race for president in an interview with CNN in early January.

Gabbard served in Iraq and Kuwait in a Hawaii National Guard field medical unit, experiences she said helped inform her non-interventionist foreign policy views.

She made waves recently for saying in a tweet that President Trump is "Saudi Arabia's bitch" for announcing the US will stand with Saudi Arabia, regardless of any intelligence community assessment on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's involvement in the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. At her campaign kickoff event, she talked about ending the exploitation of American troops by politicians bent on regime change.

"We must stand against powerful politicians from both parties who sit in ivory towers thinking up new wars to wage & new places for people to die", she said. On this basis, Greenwald contended NBC's "whole story" on Gabbard "was a sham".

So the story goes: Russian propagandists may or may not have launched a campaign to support Gabbard, who may or may not be a Kremlin asset, but you can't believe that claim because it was made by an American company who lied about shady Russian tactics ... but you can't believe that assessment, because it's been pushed by a journalist compromised by Russia.

Duke, who has expressed anti-Semitic views, also tweeted that Gabbard "is now the only Presidential candidate who doesn't want to send White children off to die in Israel".

How is it "controversial" for Gabbard to be objectively correct in her assertions? She encouraged Trump and congressional Republicans to pull USA military forces out of Syria. She opposes removing Assad from power.

"We heard attacks from warmongers in politics/media before". Gabbard, who rose to prominence as a supporter of Sen.
