Tulsi Gabbard snaps at Dana Perino for validating ‘fake indigenous woman of color,’ ignoring real one

While Democrat presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard won only one delegate on Super Tuesday, she earned enough media attention to last her a whole election cycle.

She accomplished this by, one, slamming fellow candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren for being a “fake indigenous woman of color,” and two, earning enough delegates to throw a huge wrench into the plans of the Democrat National Committee.

The first attention-drawing event occurred after Fox News contributor Karl Rove described fellow Democrat candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren as the “the only woman left [in the democrat primary] now that Amy Klobuchar is out.”

He made the remarks while speaking on FNC’s “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino.”

Watch, courtesy Gabbard:

For some reason, she aimed her criticism at Perino. Her question was valid nevertheless because there are indeed two female candidates still in the running — Gabbard and Warren.

Furthermore, Warren does have a history of falsely portraying herself as an “indigenous woman of color, despite evidence that she’s a white woman.

The second attention-drawing event was Gabbard’s acquirement of one delegate. This matters because, as it stands, the DNC has reportedly been allowing candidates with at least one candidate to participate in the Democrat debates:

And since Gabbard now boasts at least one candidate, she ought to be eligible for the 11th Democrat presidential debate scheduled for March 15th, right?

Not exactly. In response to her small but substantive victory Tuesday, members of the DNC have already begun plotting more rule changes to block her appearance:

In response to the last-minute rules-change proposal, both supporters of Gabbard and even non-supporters who are simply tired of the Democrat establishment’s incessant games pounced.

Look:

Granted, this outcome isn’t a surprise.

“This outcome surprised nobody, least of all Gabbard supporters,” non-establishment left-wing journalist Caitlin Johnstone wrote late Tuesday. “The blackout on the Tulsi 2020 campaign has reached such extreme heights this year that you now routinely see pundits saying things like there are no more people of color in the race, or that Elizabeth Warren is the only woman remaining in the primary.”

They’re not just ignoring her, they’re actually erasing her. They’re weaving a whole alternative reality out of narrative in which she is literally, officially, no longer in the race.”

Democrat candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist who stands in strong opposition to the establishment, has been able to avoid this unwanted disappearing act thanks to the grassroots support he’s enjoyed thus far. After his relatively poor performance on Super Tuesday, however, he may now face the same.

Regarding narratives, the establishment has also been weaving false narratives of how both Gabbard and front-runner candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders are puppets of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

After dubious intelligence agency reports emerged late last month claiming that the Russians were rooting for Sanders, Gabbard clapped back by calling for all candidates in the race to stop heeding such unsubstantiated claims

“I am calling on all presidential candidates to stop playing these dangerous political games and immediately condemn any interference in our elections by out-of-control intelligence agencies,” she said.

“A ‘news article’ published last week in the Washington Post, which set off yet another manufactured media firestorm, alleges that the goal of Russia is to trick people into criticizing establishment Democrats. This is a laughably obvious ploy to stifle legitimate criticism and cast aspersions on Americans who are rightly skeptical of the powerful forces exerting control over the primary election process.”

“We are told the aim of Russia is to ‘sow division,’ but the aim of corporate media and self-serving politicians pushing this narrative is clearly to sow division of their own—by generating baseless suspicion against the Sanders campaign. It’s extremely disingenuous for ‘journalists’ and rival candidates to publicize a news article that merely asserts, without presenting any evidence, that Russia is ‘helping’ Bernie Sanders—but provides no information as to what that ‘help’ allegedly consists of.”

For this statement, she was slammed by the establishment, predictably enough …
