Here’s a good long thread list of reasons that Tulsi Gabbard is neither a progressive or a Democrat.

Compiled by and lifted from “Balance of Power” Facebook page:
1/ Tulsi Gabbard is rated "F" by Progressive Punch for voting with Republicans, despite the strong progressive lean of her district:

2/ Tulsi Gabbard was nearly a part of Trump's cabinet at Steve Bannon's suggestion: abcnews.go.com/Politics/democ…

3/ Tulsi Gabbard has also been praised multiple times by Steve Bannon, Trump's former strategist and prolific white nationalist propagandist: hawaiinewsnow.com/story/36352314…
4/ Tulsi Gabbard declined to join 169 Democrats in condemning Trump for appointing Steve Bannon to his cabinet: mauitime.com/news/politics/…
5/ Tulsi Gabbard isn't anti-war. She's a self-described hawk against terrorists. Her narrow objections center around efforts to spread democracy: "In short, when it comes to the war against terrorists, I'm a hawk," Gabbard said. votetulsi.com/node/27796
6/ Tulsi Gabbard copies the rhetoric of Republicans: Gabbard voted against condemning Bashar al-Assad, president of Syria, and was praised by conservative media for publicly challenging President Barack Obama over his refusal to use the term "Islamic extremism"
7/ Tulsi Gabbard also copies the policy of Republicans, voting with them to block Syrian refugees: medium.com/@pplswar/tulsi…
8/ Tulsi Gabbard frequently repeats Russian talking points and works to legitimize Assad: theguardian.com/us-news/2017/j…
9/ Tulsi Gabbard was one of only 3 representatives to not condemn Assad for gassing Syrian civilians and the only Democrat: congress.gov/bill/114th-con… theguardian.com/us-news/2015/n…
10/ Tulsi Gabbard has introduced legislation pushed by GOP-megadonor, Sheldon Adelson: reuters.com/article/us-usa…
11/ Tulsi was later awarded a "Champions of Freedom" medal at Adelson's annual gala in 2016: thedailybeast.com/tulsi-gabbard-…
12/ Senator Mazie Hirono from Hawaii did not endorse Tulsi's 2020 bid due to concerns of Tulsi's lack of a progressive record. Senator Hirono said she would be "looking for someone who has a long record of supporting progressive goals"

13/ Tulsi Gabbard was born into a cult called the Science of Identity. It was created in the 1970's and is led by a white man named Chris Butler, but he calls himself Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa.
13/ (continued):

Tulsi's own aunt has come forward and called it the “alt-right of the Hare Krishna movement”. To this day she is an active member and some of her campaign staff come directly from that cult. nymag.com/intelligencer/…
14/ In short, Tulsi Gabbard is neither a progressive or a Democrat and she has already threatened to take her campaign to the convention even when she loses.

We can’t afford 3rd party votes this election. Our democracy depends on it.
15/ If you want to help get Tulsi Gabbard out of Congress, donate to her primary opponent, @kaikahele.

He has already received a record amount of new donors after Tulsi’s meltdown and appearance on Fox News.

Put a real Democrat in Congress.
