Tulsi Gabbard Threatens To Boycott Debate Over DNC's Primary Rigging
- 1.1K Views
Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard took to social media on Thursday to call out the radical media along with the Democratic National Committee for trying to rig the 2020 Democratic primary.
“I am seriously considering boycotting October 15 debate to bring attention to DNC/corporate media’s effort to rig 2020 primary,” Gabbard said in a video posted to Twitter.
This message is very similar to the one on her website which says: “The DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process.”
“I want to thank you all very much for your support. I need to share something with you. It is very important,” Gabbard starts in the video. “There are so many of you who I’ve met in Iowa and New Hampshire who have expressed to me how frustrated you are that the DNC and corporate media are essentially trying to usurp your role as voters in choosing who our Democratic nominee will be.”
“I share your concerns, and I’m sure that all our supporters throughout the country do as well,” she added.
The Democratic candidate then brought up the 2016 election when she said that the “2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders.”
One example of primary rigging during the 2016 election came when former CNN contributor and DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile gave failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton the debate questions before the very important debate.
Brazile has since admitted to the incident, taking ownership of her actions.
“If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead,” Brazile admitted after the 2016 presidential election.
“This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity,” she said, added that “it sure looked unethical.”
Gabbard is now bringing up the corruption from the DNC and the left-wing media saying that they are “rigging the election again.”
“In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada,” she hammered.
“They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, rather than to inform or enlighten,” Gabbard said.
“In short, the DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process,” she finished in the video. “So, in order to bring attention to this serious threat to our democracy, and to ensure that your voice is heard, I’m seriously considering to boycotting the next debate on October 15th. I’m gonna announce my decision within the next few days.”
