As you’ve doubtless heard, Tulsi Gabbard is running for POTUS.
Her Wiki entry is basically a campaign pitch but here’s an interesting sidelight:
Gabbard’s first name comes from Sanskrit. Tulsi is the name for Holy Basil, a plant sacred in Hinduism.her siblings also have Hindu Sanskrit-origin names. During her childhood Gabbard excelled in martial arts. In 2002, she was a martial arts instructor. She is vegan and, as a Hindu, follows Gaudiya Vaishnavism, a religious movement founded by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in the 16th century. Gabbard describes herself as a karma yogi. She values the Bhagavad Gita as a spiritual guide, and used it when she took the oath of office in 2 Gabbard has said that she is pleased that her election gives hope to young American Hindus who “can be open about their faith, and even run for office, without fear of being discriminated against or attacked because of their religion”.
In 2002, Gabbard married Eduardo Tamayo They divorced in 2006. She cites “the stresses war places on military spouses and families” as a reason for their divorce In 2015, Gabbard married freelance cinematographer and editor Abraham Williams in a traditional Vedic wedding ceremony, wearing blue silk.
No,, they’re not the same thing but give the country’s smug ignorance I await her “I am not a Muslim” declaration. Not that she should worry what with “The Young Turks” carrying water for her.
Hillary Clinton is perfectly justified n identifying Gabbard as a “Russian Asset” given that they clearly plan to use her as they did Jill Stein — to draw votes away from the Democrtic candidate — who will of course be opposed to all things Russian
The “Turks” claim that Gabbard is a “progressive” is not only risible it’s clearly a LIE as no genuine “progressive” opposed LGBT rights — even when they were 18 (such a tender age!) But note the shell game the “Turks” are playing in they define LGBT rights a the campaign for same-sex marriage. The watch-cry of the “Stonewall” uprising wasn’t “WE WANT TO GET MARRIED!” and even a cursory review of the “Turks” past will make plain their snide indifference cum outsight hostility to the LGBT.
Perhaps they were 18.
In and event the BIG NEWS about Tulsi is that this “progressive” has just won the endorsement of David Duke
So here’s her new Campaign Song
