Democratic National Committee changes rules to keep Tulsi Gabbard out of the next debate

March 7, 2020

  We have seen over the course of this primary season the way the Democratic National Committee has used rule changes to manipulate which candidates qualify for the debates, thus limiting or expanding a candidate’s national exposure. We saw them do this to help Mike Bloomberg, although in the end giving him a national stage was the worst thing the party could have done for him, and now we are seeing the Democratic National Committee using its power to eliminate Tulsi Gabbard from the debate stage. Here is more:

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday announced new qualifying standards for the upcoming Arizona debate that will leave only the top two contenders on stage.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) did not meet the single qualifying factor: earning at least 20 percent of the delegates awarded as of March 15.

  Tulsi Gabbard was not happy and she called out the Democratic National Committee for helping Michael Blommberg the last time around while changing the rules to hurt her this time around.

“To keep me off the stage, the DNC again arbitrarily changed the debate qualifications. Previously they changed the qualifications in the OPPOSITE direction so Bloomberg could debate. I ask that you stand w/ me against the DNC’s transparent effort to exclude me from the debates. #LetTulsiDebate,” she said.

  I would love to take this opportunity to bash the Democratic National Committee for manipulating the rules again but the truth is that at this point there are only two candidates with legitimate chances to win the nomination and there is no reason to have any other candidate on the debate stage.

  The truth is the blame for this lies with the Democratic voters themselves for rejecting every single candidate who was not a rich, white, straight, old man (and one who was) and I find that extremely ironic coming from the voters who consider themselves to be the people that accept diversity…

    I am seeing these inconsistencies in our elections too. I think it is unjust to use the American People’s vote in the way the Democratic Party is doing. I don’t want to vote because I don’t want Trump in office, I want to vote for the candidate who I think will make a good president. Why isn’t that the question?

      That is a good question, the Democratic party platform seems to be based on opposing Trump instead of standing for something. That alone might not be enough to beat him, at some point you actually have to stand for something.

    The democrat voters deserve nothing and that’s what they’re getting in a bureaucrat elite preaching communal living from the balcony of one of his three dachas and a senile old freak confused as to which of two women on the stage he slept with the night before; no, not Bubba, Plugs.
