DNC VICE-CHAIR SAYS SHE WAS DISINVITED FROM DEBATE FOR QUESTIONING WASSERMAN SCHULTZ DECISION:

“I have been pretty vocal about calling out for more debate debates. I have been calling for more debates to give the American people more opportunity to hear from these presidential candidates, to listen to what they have got to say, to hold them accountable for their views and their positions,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) told CNN last night. “Because that differentiated from the decision that the chairwoman made from the DNC, I was told that I was no longer welcome to come to the debate.”

“Debbie’s chief had called mine and basically spoke about an interview that I had had talking about the need and the call that the American people are having for more debates, for democracy, for increasing the engagement that we need in our society as we look to see who will lead our country into the future.”

Gabbard said “the prevailing message of that was because I continued to call for more debates, that I should not go to the debate there in Las Vegas.”

“…The issue here is not about me saying boo-hoo, I’m going to miss the party. The issue here is one of democracy, of freedom of speech and defending that which so many have sacrificed and given their lives for.”

Now who’s being naïve, Tulsi?

All Americans have to learn this the hard way, but wait until the light bulb* goes on, and Gabbard pieces together that the modern Democrat Party is rather opposed to the notions of “democracy, of freedom of speech and defending that which so many have sacrificed and given their lives for” — and has been for quite some time.

* Yeah, they’re opposed to those, as well.
