James Scaminaci III recently commented on Twitter that, “Nobody, save Naomi Allen, takes Gabbard seriously.” He couldn’t be more wrong. Some of the most respected voices in US foreign policy are taking Tulsi Gabbard seriously. People like, Robert Kennedy Jr.

David Bromwich (Sterling Professor of English at Yale University) recently praised Tulsi for criticizing US hegemony, and described her in his latest book, American Breakdown: The Trump Years and How They Befell Us, as the only person on Capital Hill who genuinely wants to (and could) end regime change wars.

She is also taken seriously enough to serve on the Council of Advisors for the Center for the Study of Statesmanship at Catholic University of America, alongside Andrew Bacevich (Professor Emeritus of International Relations and History at Boston University), who recently commented that Tulsi holds important and legitimate views on US foreign policy.

Professor Bacevich is right about something else: Tulsi Gabbard has become a bit radioactive, and speaking well of her is the quickest way to get yourself blacklisted in political circles. He would know about such things. And so would Professor Bromwich. As critics of US foreign policy, they’re both a bit radioactive themselves.
