EDITOR’S NOTE:  Putin’s potted Tulsi should very well know that free speech in America is at least 50% different from free speech in Russia.  In 2018 when Tulsi Gabbard hired a Russian agent to silence critics in Hawai'i media, she was successful against Honolulu Magazine but not successful against Hawai’i Free Press.  Read: “Tulsi Gabbard Hires Russian Agent to Keep Hawaii Media in Check

Tulsi Gabbard says US ‘not so different’ from Russia on free speech

UK Independent March 16, 2022: … Speaking with Fox News’ Jesse Watters, Ms Gabbard said the situation in the US was “not that different from what we’re seeing happening in Russia”, where news is state-controlled and challenging authority will likely lead to imprisonment, if not death.

“This is what’s so dangerous about the place that we’re in right now as a country,” said Ms Gabbard of the US, where the news is not controlled by the government, on Tuesday. “Freedom of expression is directly under threat and under attack.”

“And you’re right. It’s not so different,” she continued, without any apparent irony. “What’s happening here is not that different from what we’re seeing happening in Russia, where you’ve got state TV and controlled messaging across the board. This is where we’re at.”

(QUESTION 1: Do you agree with her?)

(QUESTION 2: How much weed do you smoke?)

Her comments came after the Jesse Watters Primetime host asked Ms Gabbard about “propaganda” being issued by US president Joe Biden and Russian president Vladimir Putin, which he said were both designed “to silence free speech”.

The Fox News anchor did not cite any examples of how Mr Biden and Democrats had tried to “silence free speech”, which is guaranteed by the US Constitution. Speaking out against Mr Putin and his war on Ukraine will, in comparison, lead to 15 years in prison in Russia.

“We are moving in that direction, Jesse,” said Ms Gabbard on Tuesday in apparent reference to Democrats and her opponents. “They’re afraid of the truth ... [The] power elite … are so weak that they know they will not withstand the light of the truth.”

Hosts of The View on Monday referred to Ms Gabbard as a Putin “shill” and Republican senator Mitt Romney said his former colleague was pushing “propaganda” after she parroted a Kremlin-backed conspiracy theory about US-funded biolabs that “if breached would release & spread deadly pathogens to US/world”….

The Democrat’s statements also came after an editor for Russia’s Channel-1 was arrested for protesting against Mr Putin’s invasion live on air, and was later charged….

Newsweek: “Gabbard was asked by Watters whether the U.S. is moving in the same direction as Russia with regards to spreading propaganda following reports that the White House had briefed dozens of popular TikTok personalities in order to promote information on the war in Ukraine.”

“Gabbard’s Hare Krishna cult leader Chris Butler wants recognition from the real Hindus in India.  To that end, he has directed his loyal servant Tulsi Gabbard to kiss up to the Hindu nationalist government of India.  India’s foreign policy is aligned with Russia and is anti-Islamist which then leads Gabbard to align with Putin….”  -- HFP, 2018
