2020 Debate: Tulsi Gabbard Takes Down Kamala Harris – Twitter Censors Gabbard

2020 Debate: Tulsi Gabbard Takes Down Kamala Harris – Twitter Censors Gabbard

The second installment of the 2020 Democratic Presidential Debate was held in Detroit last night, and appeared to be more energetic than the previous night, featuring numerous lively exchanges between candidates.

Most notably, sparks flew between Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and California Senator Kamala Harris, as Gabbard attacked Harris’s problematic record on criminal justice as her state’s prosecutor and attorney general.

“There are too many examples to cite, but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” said Gabbard said. Harris tried to rebuke Gabbard, but only received a second blow in return. Watch:

During the entire first hour of the debate, CNN’s panel of ‘moderators’ actively avoided Gabbard allowing her to speak only once in the first 60 minutes of the contest, while favoring DNC favorites Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, both of who were given near unlimited time to talk and argue back and forth in lengthy exchanges.

After the debate, CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Kamala Harris about the exchange with Gabbard, and Harris proceeded to unleash an ad hominem attack on the Hawaii Congresswoman, calling her “an apologist” for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Watch:

“Hey Kamala Harris, why were you a hypocrite on marijuana and why did you support the three strike law?”

“Uhhh Tulsi Gabbard bad Assad bad (I get to deflect that criticism now right?)”

Harris’ press secretary, Ian Sams, went on to label Gabbard’s supporters as part of a clandestine “the Russian propaganda machine.”

Quickly falling into line behind the Democrat’s Russiagate conspiracy were mainstream journalists, including Wajahat Ali from the New York Times, immediately reacting by circulating xenophobic smears claiming that Gabbard’s trending popularity is part of some secret Russian plot:

Beware the Russian bots and their promotion of Tulsi Gabbard and sowing racial dischord, especially around Kamala Harris.

Tulsi is 2020’s Jill Stein. A fraudulent, Vladimir Putin approved spoiler. Putin took Tulsi, an American soldier, and turned her into a Trojan Horse, his own #SiberianCandidate.

Evidence? Putin’s bots and paid for shills are pushing #KamalaHarrisDestroyed

Not losing any time in manipulating public opinion for this US election, Silicon Valley gatekeepers at Twitter quickly moved to suppress Tulsi Gabbard from its US Trending topics – effectively erasing her from its US rankings of trending topics, although Gabbard was clearly visibly in their world rankings. This  was more proof that self-styled technocrats at Twitter are in fact directly involved in election meddling and interference in the US:

Tulsi Gabbard is being censored on United States trends lists. She appears on worldwide trends lists. She has 174k tweets and is on #10. So you guys just get Twitter to cheat for Kamala Harris. Really Pathetic!

I’m sure @NickPacilio has nothing to do with why Assad is trending #1 for me while Tulsi Gabbard will not appear in the United States trends at all. Hey Nick care to explain why @TulsiGabbard won’t appear on the trends list correctly? How is this not blatant political censorship?

Despite Twitter’s best efforts to censor Gabbard, interest in her performance clearly dominated Google Trends in across the US:

Following the last two debates, Tulsi has spiked to #1 in Google Trends, showing America is hungry for her message of ending wasteful wars and the nuclear arms race. Join us to ensure she makes the donation requirement for the September debate #DemDebate

Recently Tulsi Gabbard filed a lawsuit against Google for censoring and erasing the Democratic candidate.

Independent journalist Tom Luongo describes how Google acted to blunt interest in her campaign in the critical hours after the first democratic debate. He explains:

The two main points of her lawsuit are: 1) suspending her Google Ad account for six hours while search traffic for her was spiking and 2) Gmail disproportionately junked her campaign emails.

This represents an intervention into her ability to speak to voters and, as such, is a violation of not only her First Amendment rights but also, more critically, campaign finance law.
