Tulsi Gabbard Tells Fellow Democrats to 'Stop Trying to Divide Us' by Race

Former Hawaii Rep. and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard told fellow Democrats Friday that they must stop "trying to divide us" by skin color and put an end to their "open-border policy" if they wish to receive more votes in U.S. elections.

"My fellow Dems: if you want people to vote for you, stop calling millions of Americans dogs—only dogs respond to 'dog whistles,'" Gabbard said in a tweet. "Stop trying to divide us by the color of our skin. End your open-border policy. Treat us all with the respect we deserve as Americans & God’s children."

This comes after Gabbard, on a number of occasions, has recently condemned moves by both the Biden administration and the Democratic Party, including the chaotic withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.

Earlier this week, she said that Democrat Terry McAuliffe's loss in Virginia's gubernatorial election was a "victory for all Americans" because it was a "resounding rejection of efforts to divide us by race, the stripping of parental rights, and arrogant, deaf leaders." She added that the results of the governor's race "benefits us all."

Ilhan Omar (MN), Cori Bush (MO), Jamaal Bowman (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (MI), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Ayanna Pressley (MA) were the only Democrats to vote against it.

The bill, which will fund physical infrastructure projects including roads, bridges, water pipes and broadband internet, will be sent to Biden’s desk for final approval. In August, the Senate vvoted 69-30 to approve the legislation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi initially planned to hold votes on the infrastructure and social spending bills Friday but, after some moderates demanded the Congressional Budget Office "score" the spending bill so they could better assess its total cost, Pelosi had to abandon her schedule, Fox Business reported.…Read more here.
