Tulsi Gabbard et son gourou

Au moment où Démocrates et Républicains semblent paniquer à la perspective de voir Tulsi Gabbard faire acte de candidature à la Maison Blanche, il n'est pas inutile de mieux connaître cette personne.

Nous lui avions consacré précédemment un article  dans l'ensemble favorable. Une de nos correspondantes, journaliste au Québec, nous adresse pour information les extraits de presse ci-dessous.  Nous ne sommes pas suffisamment informés pour avoir une opinion définitive sur Tulsi Gabbard, que l'on présente à tort ou à raison comme d'extrême-gauche voire socialiste. Nous sommes encore moins capables de critiquer les articles hostiles qu'elle suscite. A priori, elle nous serait plutôt sympathique. 

Faute de temps, nous ne traduirons pas les articles cités en référence. Ces articles, très hostile à Tulsi Gabard, sont sutout intéressants parce qu'ils montrent une fois de plus les relations étroites qu'ont les représentants politiques américains avec non seulement les religions mais les sectes. Dans un pays comme la France, qui s'efforce par sa Constitution de séparer dans un esprit de laïcité les institutions politiques et les religions, ceci serait inadmissible. Notons que ce n'est pas seulement aux Etats-Unis qu'existent des relations incestueuses entre la politique et la religion, mais dans les deux Amériques, comme l'a montré récemment au Brésil l'élection de Jair Bolsonaro. Nous ne mentionneront évidemment pas le cas bien connu de l'Etat d'Israël .

On ne révélera pas  ici l'identité de notre correspondante , que l'on nommera avec beaucoup d'originalité Anonyma. __________________________________________________________________________________

Chère Europe solidaire, ci-joint quelques informations sur cette dame qui est liée depuis son enfance à une secte dont le guru est Chris Butler. Présentement, tout son entourage politique qui travaille avec elle provient de cette secte et sont des disciples de Chris Butler, un personnage très controversé. Tulsi Gabbard est arrivé dans cette secte - via ses parents - à l'âge de deux ans. On peut voir sur le web, des vidéos où les enfants se prosternent devant leur guru...C'est une secte qui se dit hindouiste et proche du mouvement Hare Krishna. Anonyma.

Here are a few highlights:
Former anti-gay activist who called gay advocates "homosexual extremists".
Born and raised in a creepy Hare Krishna sub-cult.
Outspoken defender of Syria's genocidal Assad (an idol of the extreme Right).
Supporter of Hindu nationalism in India, a violent right-wing movement.
Refused to vote for major gun control legislation, including the Assault Weapons Ban of 2015.
Voted with Republicans to pass HR 1181 in 2017 to remove gun restrictions for the mentally ill.
Voted with Republicans to block Syrian refugees.
Voted with Republicans in 2014 to pass HR 4118 to weaken ObamaCare.
Regularly slammed Democrats and the Obama administration on Fox News and other major TV news outlets.
Resigned from the DNC and endorsed Bernie Sanders. Called DNC Chair a "liar" on TV in an election year (2016).
Endorsed by alt-right leader Richard Spencer and former KKK leader David Duke. (This is not a joke).
Has refused to debate all Democratic challengers since being elected to Congress.
Filed an extension on her 2017 Financial Disclosures to delay release until AFTER the Democratic Primary.

MEET TULSI GABBARD:
Tulsi Gabbard, or as I call her “the Manchurian Candidate”, is a Republican posing as a democrat. She is an embarrassment and a disgrace to the Democratic Party.
Tulsi is also a bona-fide cult member, born and raised in a creepy Krishna subsect cult. She claims her spiritual master is Chris Butler, the leader of the homophobic Science of Identity cult. In Butler's cult, children kneel in his presence, marriages are arranged and any attempt to leave the cult means you can never have any future contact with your own family members. The cult gets tons of money from dubious sources and has some interesting members, including some global drug traffickers.
Years ago, the cult began backing it's members as political candidates, including Tulsi's conservative father Mike Gabbard, who ran as a Republican and was elected to Hawaii State Senate. Mike Gabbard quickly realized he wasn't going to get far in a State where Democrats have long had a supermajority, so in 2007, Gabbard switched from Republican to the Democratic Party of Hawaii. Although he still serves Hawaii's 20th district, he receives repeated complaints regarding his opposition to the Democratic Party of Hawai'i's platform.
The cult also groomed Tulsi Gabbard for political power, but her district in Hawaii is 76% Democrat. Knowing this was the only to infiltrate State politics, Tulsi took cues from her father and entered politics as a Democrat.

Tulsi's family are well-known anti-gay activists. Tulsi proudly touted her work for her father's anti-gay organization, which led the charge in Hawaii AGAINST same-sex marriage and promoted controversial gay conversion therapy.
Gabbard's father ran The Alliance for Traditional Marriage, a PAC that spent more than $100K to pass an amendment in that gave the Hawaii state legislature power to "reserve marriage to opposite-sex couples." The Alliance for Traditional Marriage called homosexuality "unhealthy, abnormal behavior that should not be promoted or accepted in society."
Gabbard's father was also the director of Stop Promoting Homosexuality and also served on the National Campaign to Protect Marriage and Save Traditional Marriage. He also hosted an anti-gay radio show called Let's Talk Straight Hawaii.
n 2004, while serving as a "Democrat" in the Hawaii State Legislature, Tulsi (who at the time used her married name Tamayo) led a protest against a bill that would have legalized civil unions for same-sex couples. “As Democrats, we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists,” she said at the time.. The same year, she made a notably anti-gay floor speech against another bill to help gay youth. Screen shot excerpts of that speech are in my photo albums under Tulsi Gabbard.
So why did Democratic voters elect her to Congress? Tulsi entered the Democratic Primary for Congress in 2012. The leading candidate at the time was Democrat Mufi Hannemann, a political opponent of then Democrat Governor Neil Abercombie. Abercombie's highest priority was to see Mufi defeated. Despite her right-wing views, Abercombie's team took Tulsi under their wing and repackaged her as a “progressive.” Tulsi started claiming to have "evolved" from her radical anti-gay and pro-life ways, but she never really acknowledged her actual views. At the same time, her opponent Mufi was still spouting anti-gay beliefs and opposing the state's then Civil Union law. Democrats had a choice between an outspoken anti-gay bigot (Mufi) or a candidate with an even worse anti-gay record but who claimed to have changed.
Tulsi also has a long history of being against a woman's right to choose. She entered politics in as an anti-gay pro-lifer, but later she suddenly changed her public stance on gay rights and abortion. This was dubious at best and in a 2015 interview with Ozy, she confirmed that her “personal views” on gay marriage and abortion hadn't changed, just her view on whether the government should enforce its vision of morality. Hmmm.
Once in office, Tulsi started showing her true (RED) colors. She often votes with Republicans in Congress. Gabbard refused to co-sponsor gun control legislation, including the Assault Weapons Ban of 2015. She voted in favor of a Republican-sponsored anti-refugee bill.
She wormed her way into a position at the DNC and began her campaign of sabotage and self-serving publicity. She went on every news and talk show (including Fox News) and began slamming Democrats and the Obama administration. Gabbard criticized Obama for not bombing Syria, while praising Putin for doing so. Gabbard has since been glorified in conservative media.
Tulsi was very outspoken AGAINST Obama's nuclear agreement with Iran but begrudgingly voted for it and tweeted that “It's not a great deal, or even a good deal. I voted for it because I could not find a better alternative.”
In 2014, long before Trump jumped on the bandwagon, Gabbard was appearing regularly on Fox News to slam the Obama administration for avoiding the phrase “Islamic extremism” or some variation of it.

Gabbard, the first Hindu in the House, aligned herself with the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and their leader, Narendra Modi. He campaigned for election in 2014 by threatening to deport undocumented immigrants from Bangladesh (who are mostly Muslim), calling them “infiltrators.” The same year, Gabbard said “He is a leader whose example and dedication to the people he serves should be an inspiration to elected officials everywhere.” Modi has been accused of a multitude of human-rights abuses, including attacks against Muslims and homosexuals. When members of the U.S. House of Representatives introduced HR 417, a bill that called on India to improve its human-rights abuses, Gabbard publicly opposed it. Modi became prime minister of India.
In 2015, Tulsi traveled to Egypt as part of a congressional delegation and met Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Sisi is a blood-soaked tyrant who's killed hundreds of Egyptians and imprisoned thousands more. Gabbard saw it differently, stating that “President el-Sisi has shown great courage and leadership in taking on this extreme Islamist ideology,” urging US political leaders to “stand with him in this fight against Islamic extremists.” Some of the Sisi government's accomplishments in this fight include killing a group of Mexican tourists and torturing and murdering an Italian PhD student.
Gabbard went to Syria to meet with Syrian President Assad in January 2017. She was accompanied by Elie and Bassam Khawam, officials in the Syrian Social Nationalist Party, a party actively engaged in the Syrian civil war on the side of the Assad regime. To visit an authoritarian regime, while accompanied by two men who greatly support it, in front of a global audience, can serve to legitimize authoritarian rule. Gabbard came back from the experience saying Assad should remain in power, despite the fact that he's been committing genocide of his own people for years.
After reporters revealed that Gabbard's Syria trip had been funded by a pair of Lebanese-American businessmen with ties to a pro-Assad political party, Gabbard's tepid response was to simply agree to repay her travel costs. A few months after her trip, after a sarin-gas attack in Syria, Gabbard publicly said she was “skeptical” of claims that Assad's regime was to blame. Howard Dean responded on Twitter, saying “This is a disgrace. Gabbard should not be in Congress.”
Gabbard voted against a House resolution condemning “war crimes and crimes against humanity” by the Syrian government.

In 2015, before the DNC had a chance to kick her to the curb, Tulsi resigned “in protest”. She couldn't openly cross the aisle where she belongs (without risk to her seat in congress) so she endorsed Bernie Sanders. This was seen by insiders as another way to generate publicity and headlines, since her rhetoric and positions on issues have often been closer to Trump's than Sanders.

Tulsi is so RED that after the 2016 election, Donald Trump seriously considered her for secretary of state or U.N. ambassador. Tulsi was the only “Democrat” considered and the only one Trump met with. Steve Bannon loved the idea because of her stance on guns, refugees and Islam. Kellyanne Conway told reporters that “Trump and Gabbard have a lot of common ground and both understand the country very well”. Racist alt-right leader Richard Spencer also loved the idea, tweeting “Tulsi Gabbard is brave and the kind of person we need in the diplomatic corps.”
As if one racist alt-right endorsement wasn't enough, Tulsi is also supported by David Duke, the former grand wizard of the KKK. In a 2016 radio interview, Duke said that he was a huge fan of Congresswoman Gabbard. Although Gabbard quickly renounced Duke's support, his endorsement at the very least says a lot about her ideologies and affiliations with right-wing dictators.

In 2017, according to FEC filings, Gabbard's campaign paid the Potomac Square Group (headed by Chris Cooper) for media consulting. The same year, Cooper was named in a letter from Senate Judiciary Committee as part of the Russia investigation. Cooper was also hired to do PR for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer from the Trump Tower meeting who has now been charged in a separate case that shows her close ties to the Kremlin.
Gabbard's campaign spent over $70,000 on video equipment and production costs, with much of that going to her husband Abraham Williams and his production company. Tulsi's husband is also a member of the Science of Identity cult. His company produces all the videos for cult co-leader Wai Lana Butler, including local PBS shows raising funds for the wealthy cult leader and his wife.

If you live in Tulsi's district and ask for information or services, Gabbard requires her own constituents to fill out a 3-page "Privacy Release Form" before her office staff will provide assistance. This invasive form requires detailed information including immigrant status, business tax ID, Medicare, and Veteran's Administration numbers. These forms are not required by other Congressional offices.

Tulsi Gabbard has never attended a Women's March even though Teresa Shook lives in her district. Shook founded the movement before it was hijacked by radical extremists like Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour.

Tulsi Gabbard was chosen to be an inaugural fellow at the Sanders Institute, founded by Bernie's wife, Jane Sanders. Just like Sanders, Gabbard is pure poison to our party. We must do everything in our power to keep Democrats from being deceived by this self-serving cult-raised infiltrator. Tulsi Gabbard's actions have proven to be against the ideals and platform of our party and her true agenda and motivations are unknown.
