After being ignored by CNN, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard organized a protest at the venue for CNN’s two-night town hall.
The townhall, which started on February 5, 2020, featured eight candidates.
The Hawaii congresswoman was not invited to this townhall.
Democrats who polled lower than Gabbard were in attendance.
“This attempt to silence Tulsi is bigger than one person — it’s our right as voters to hear from ALL the candidates, and to have our voices represented,” the Gabbard campaign declared in a statement according to a Fox News report.“No institution should be allowed to get away with censoring democracy: That’s why we’re standing up to CNN on Wednesday, February 5th, demanding that our voices be heard.”
Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick did not qualify for the debate, but was still given a spot at the town hall “as part of the network’s commitment to hosting individual town halls with the Democratic presidential candidates,” according to a CNN statement, which rationalized this blatant example of gatekeeping.
Unlike Gabbard, Patrick was invited because he hasn’t participated in a CNN town hall, according to CNN.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, businessman Andrew Yang and billionaire Tom Steyer attended CNN’s first town hall on Wednesday night. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Governor Deval Patrick will take the stage on Thursday night.
Gabbard has outperformed Patrick in national polls and in New Hampshire. Additionally, she has outpolled Yang and Steyer in New Hampshire, according to a Fox News report.
“We have reached out, I think, more than once, and we received no explanation,” Gabbard said during an interview with Fox on January 28. “I don’t even think we’ve gotten a response to date about why they’re excluding the first female combat veteran ever to run for president, the only woman of color in the race.”
She also questions certain aspects of the neoconservative/neoliberal foreign policy.
For that reason, Gabbard has a useful role in calling out a lot of the nonsense coming out of the Democrat Party.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
