(Patriot Insider) – Former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii took an opportunity on Tuesday night to speak with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and explain her reasons for leaving the Democratic Party, a move that sent shockwaves throughout the political world and earned her a whole lot of hate from her colleagues on the left, due to it being “controlled by fanatical ideologues.”
“I love our country and I took an oath as a service member, as a soldier, as well as a member of Congress to support and defend the Constitution. That’s an oath I take extremely seriously,” Gabbard, who serves in the National Guard, stated during the interview with Carlson. “When you look at this party, today’s Democratic Party, it’s controlled by fanatical ideologues who hate freedom. They despise the Constitution. They actively find ways to undermine our God-given rights enshrined in the Constitution like freedom of speech.”
The Daily Caller said that Gabbard made the announcement about her decision to break away from the Democratic Party Tuesday going on to cite “anti-white racism,” and making the accusation that Democrats are controlled by an “elitist cabal.”
“They will do all that they can to destroy you, silence you, smear you, work with Big Tech, work with corporate media to actively destroy anyone who dares even question their agenda. They are against freedom of religion,” Gabbard remarked during her appearance on the program. “They are hostile towards people of faith, people who have their own spiritual practice, especially Christians, finding ways to be vindictive, to discriminate, to punish people who happen to exercise that freedom of religion. The list goes on and on but the foundation of freedom is really what was at the heart of my making this decision that I cannot be a member of the party that is against freedom and actively trying to undermine it.”
“Gabbard ran for president in 2020, suspending her campaign at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, citing her desire to be ready should she be activated. She harshly criticized Democrats over the border and their rhetoric against Republicans, called the Aug. 8 raid on Mar-a-Lago, the Florida estate owned by former President Donald Trump, a ‘blatant abuse of power,'” the Daily Caller reported.
The former congresswoman for Hawaii also put Biden and his administration on blast concerning its response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“Rather than taking a stand for peace, for prosperity, security and freedom of the American people, we have too many people in Washington who are warmongers subservient to the military-industrial complex and continuing to put their own selfish interests or the interests of their donors first with no mind for the cost and consequence that their decisions have on the American people,” Gabbard commented. “This is exactly what we are seeing right now with President Biden and leaders in Congress whose decisions are actively pushing us to the brink of a nuclear holocaust.”
This is a major blow to the Democratic Party, but they don’t recognize it yet. One of the few members of the party to have a wide appeal for the average American just walked out the door. I think we all saw that coming though. Many of her policy positions on important issues do not fit in well with the Democrats. She’s not a progressive. That much we know. Is she a full blown conservative? It’s too early to say anything on that topic at the moment.
