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.

“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.”

CNN sent out invitations to candidates who qualified for the Feb. 7, 2020 Democratic debate, according to a network spokesperson.

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.”

Gabbard holds conventional leftist positions on issues such as healthcare and the environment.

However, she is not as radical as some of her colleagues who flirt with ideas of radical environmentalism and anti-gun policies such as gun confiscation.

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.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
