For a party that claims to fight for women, the DNC is doing everything in its power to screw over Tulsi Gabbard.
After super Tuesday, Gabbard, the only female still in the race looked as though she would qualify for the March 15th debate based on the current rule set. However, today the DNC pulled the rug out from under Gabbard and changed the rules. They raised the delegate threshold to 20%, making it almost impossible for her to qualify given the amount of time until the next debate.
The reasons here couldn’t be more obvious and all you have to do is look at the smoldering remains of Kamala Harris’ failed campaign to see why.
I still firmly believe that Kamala Harris was one of the early ‘chosen’ candidates of the DNC. Here involvement in the Jussie Smollet fake race hoax was covered up by Obama insiders in order to protect her then young campaign. However, a ferocious attack and debate performance by Tulsi Gabbard aimed towards Harris pretty much stopped her presidential aspirations cold.
In the July 31st debate last year, Gabbard attacked Harris on her past record of prosecuting small time marijuana offenders and other criminal justice measures which disproportionately impacted the poor. Gabbard went on the offensive and told Harris, “The people who suffered under your reign as prosecutor, you owe them an apology.” Harris had no response, and her campaign pretty much died on the debate stage that night.
Fast forward to today and the Democratic establishment is terrified of a repeat of that. They’re worried if Gabbard gets on stage with Biden and only one other candidate, that she will have an open shot at taking him down the same way she took down Kamala Harris.
The truth is, they are right to have that fear as Biden is a weakened and vulnerable candidate. He has shown that he is slow on his feet and unable to articulate even basic answers, let alone responses to scathing attacks. Gabbard would most likely leave Biden bloodied and battered after the debate.
Late Friday night, Gabbard Tweeted directly to both Biden and Sanders and asked them to demand she be allowed into the March 15th debate under the previous rules.
.@JoeBiden @BernieSanders I’m sure you would agree that our Democratic nominee should be a person who will stand up for what is right. So I ask that you have the courage to do that now in the face of the DNC's effort to keep me from participating in the debates. #LetTulsiDebate

Of course, we all know how the two will respond. None of them want Gabbard on stage. She has nothing to lose at this point, and could easily expose both Biden and Sanders for who they really are.
In the end, it’s just another day and another example of the DNC rigging their own primaries. After 4 years of this, you would think Democratic voters would start to get a little annoyed by now.
