It is always helpful to get a glimpse of the internal dynamics of the enemy’s central command (the Trump administration), and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s (D. HI) recent trip to Syria helps us get such a glimpse. (Dennis Kucinich, another liberal icon, also went on the trip.) Let’s not forget that she met privately with Trump shortly after his election to discuss “our current policies regarding Syria, our fight against terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria], as well as other foreign policy challenges we face,” according to Gabbard. We also should not forget that she has expressed no criticism of Trump.
Her trip to Syria was set up by officials of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party, and they appear to have been her escort while she was in Syria. This shadowy party has long lurked in the Shadows of Syrian and Lebanese politics. It advocates a “Greater Syria” that would include Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine/Israel and even down into Kuwait. Founded in 1932, it supported the Nazis in WW II and is an outright fascist party. Until recently, it was just a fringe party in Syria. However, Assad has increasingly relied on the SSNP troops, and according to this article (which also gives some good background to the SSNP), Assad turned over the administration of Homs to the SSNP when he retook that city in 2014. And the Syrian Minister of State for National Reconciliation Affairs, Ali Haidar, is a leader of the SSNP.
Bearing in mind that Gabbard had recently met with Trump to discuss Syria, and bearing in mind that the Pentagon reportedly knew about her visit, it seems overwhelmingly likely that she unofficially went on behalf of Trump & Co. But the question is, who set it up? Who made the links with the SSNP? Why, Steve Bannon, of course!
Breitbart & SSNP
In 2011, when Assad seemed to be sitting firmly in the saddle, Bannon’s Breitbart carried several articles condemning the SSNP, but they have changed their tune since. Here is one article praising the SSNP’s role in 2015, for example. And there is something else: As advocates of a “Greater Syria”, the SSNP is opposed to religious sectarianism and has quite a base of support among Syrian Christians. As a forum for far right Christians in the US, this is another reason for Breitbart to support the SSNP.
So we see another indication of the elevation of the role of Steve Bannon in the Trump administration. We also see the filthy role of liberal Democrats like Tulsi Gabbard and Dennis Kucinich, who apparently have no problem associating with fascists such as the SSNP.
None of this should come as a surprise to those who are serious about politics and have looked into the real Tulsi Gabbard – the one who supports the Hindu sectarian BJP and is in league with the right wing. American Enterprise Institute.
