the guilt-by-association campaign the left has waged on Gabbard, saying “Doesn’t it bother you that Steve Bannon and some other white supremacists like you?”

You can smear anyone with that logic.
Maybe the UK should have avoided fighting Nazi Germany, as that would have been appeasing the Bolsheviks?
Perhaps liberals should stop speaking up for capitalism against Communism, in case the economic right start agreeing with us?
Perhaps feminism and gay rights activism should be shut down, in case neocons want to instrumentalize and co-opt these causes?
