After everything I wrote here, people are still sending me messages to insist that Tulsi Gabbard is an Assad apologist.
So… I am right about this or that accusation being a total lie, but…
“She once said that she didn’t believe he is responsible for the chemical attacks, and that proves that she supports him.”
I challenged those people to show me an actual statement from her about this. Turns out, one does not exist. I was sent this, instead:
“So she didn’t say he didn’t do it. But she did say that if he was found guilty of it, she would be the first to call for his execution. Well, he’s been found guilty, and she hasn’t called for his execution. So there… she supports him.”
God. So sick of this.
That isn’t what she said. She said that if there is evidence that he ordered the attack, he needs to be tried for war crimes by the ICC.
While y’all accuse her of protecting Assad, the reality is that she called for him to be put on trial… but that fell on deaf ears, and no such trial ever happened. People really need to start paying attention to her actual words and actions, instead of all the journo mansplaining, and troll hyperbole that’s being planted on her behalf.
It is mind-blowing to discover just how much OpEd journalism is wrecking our realities.
