Culture Wars/Current Controversies

That’s the best endorsement of Tulsi I’ve seen to date

If Bill Kristol is against you, you’re probably doing something right.

Where I would agree with her is what Jesse Watters says around 5:55 into this segment. He’s right that the Dems today are a party of hawks whose main constituency is the upper middle class and professional class liberals for whom it is a status symbol to present one’s self as socially progressive on the identitarian laundry list issues like race, gender, gay, trans, etc. and sneer at Trumpists.

Listening to her “why I am leaving” video all the way through, I would agree with her on foreign policy, the Patriot Act, and asset forfeiture. The rest is a collection of the laundry list of populist-right talking points that are half-truths, exaggerated, or taken out of context. What she is saying applies to extreme woketards but not the mainstream of the Dems. It’s like when liberals portray Qanon types or WNs as the mainstream of Republican voters. What I’ve noticed about culture war partisans is that most of them seem to think that if they can’t have their way 100% of the time, they’re being oppressed. She seems to be pandering to the rightward end of that.
