Tulsi Gabbard to Leave Democratic Party Over Authoritarianism, Racism

Tulsi Gabriel, former Hawaii Representative, stated in a Tuesday Video that she was leaving the Democratic Party because of its authoritarianism.

“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoking anti-white racism, who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution,” says Gabbard in the first episode of her new YouTube channel, the Tulsi Gabbard Show.

“This party is led by warmongers who are firmly in the grips of the military industrial complex,” Gabbard says. She charges that Democrats have led us to the brink of nuclear war, which is “the most urgent existential threat we face.”

Gabbard, who ran for president as a Democrat in 2020, notes, “I didn’t win that election, so I don’t have the power to do what’s necessary to prevent it.”

“I’m calling on every one of you to stand up to these cowardly politicians,” she declares, adding that this may be Americans’ last chance to do so.

Today’s Democratic Party has been “weaponizing the security state and federal law enforcement for their own partisan, political ends,” Gabbard continues. Democrats have undermined democracy as well as the rule of laws by doing so.

They were criticized for supporting de-funding the police and for passing laws that favor criminals over ordinary Americans. “Is it any surprise that crime and murder rates are rapidly increasing?” she remarks.

Gabbard comments on the Department of Justice’s recent arrest of 11 pro-life activists for blocking an abortion clinic entrance. “They didn’t use physical force, they weren’t dangerous,” she says. She points out that seven of these activists face up to 11 years imprisonment and fines up $250,000 if convicted.

“The Biden [Department of Justice] and Department of Homeland Security are using their newly formed domestic terror unit to target parents who are vocally standing in opposition to radical curriculums and explicit sexual content being taught to their kids in schools,” she adds.

Gabbard laments President Biden’s campaign for unity in 2020 presidential elections, while he recently claimed that his political opponents are domestic terrorists or extremists. “That’s half the country,” says Gabbard. She also notes that the Biden administration did nothing when protestors gathered outside the homes of Supreme Court justices following the leak of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson. While these protests were in clear violation of federal law, it’s non-violent, pro-life activists who have been targeted by Biden’s Department of Justice, she argues.

“When the party in power does not believe in the rule of law, but they’re responsible for writing and enforcing laws, our democracy is doomed.”

Gabbard adds that the Democratic Party leaders don’t believe in freedoms such as religion and speech. “They try to censor speech they don’t like, labeling it as misinformation and hate speech.”

Democrats are “working hand-in-glove with corporate, for-profit media and Big Tech to smear and silence political opponents and anyone who dares to challenge their authority,” she says.

Gabbard notes the Biden administration’s recent attempt to create a “ministry of truth,” which would control information Americans read and share online. Democrats’ objective is to “determine what is misinformation, what is true and what is not,” says Gabbard. “Their ideology is one of hate and divisiveness, rather than respect and love.”

Today’s Democrats are also hostile to people of faith, she adds. During the 2020 Democratic National Convention, Democrats chose to omit “under God” from the pledge of allegiance. “Freedom of religion does not mean freedom from religion.”

Gabbard says that Americans should be able to practice their religion without fear of punishment or reprisal. “Any political party trying to erase presence of God in every facet of public life … cannot be trusted to protect our inalienable, God-given rights enshrined in the Constitution, and therefore should not be in power.”

Moreover, “the Democratic Party’s hatred of the Second Amendment and their increasing authoritarian instincts poses a serious threat to our freedoms.”

She cites comments from Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, who said, “hell yes, we’ll take your AR-15 and your AK-47” in a 2020 presidential debate as one example of Democrats’ hatred of the right to bear arms.

Today’s Democrats are “Big Brother undermining our civil liberties,” Gabbard argues. “Every time they’ve had the opportunity, they choose to side with the security state instead of siding with our liberty, our freedom.” She notes Democrats’ opposition to her bill in Congress which would have repealed the Patriot Act.

According to Gabbard, Democrats have betrayed Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream that we are judged by the content of our character rather than the color of our skin. Democrats have used identity politics to divide Americans and propagate “anti-white” racism, she contends. “They have become the racists they claim to hate.”

Gabbard also notes the Democratic party’s erasure of women by rejecting biological reality and demanding that we replace words like “mother” with “birthing person.”

America is putting women at risk “just to please biological men who claim to be women at any given moment,” she warns.

She says that Democrats are taking away women’s sports opportunities by allowing biological males against them. “Behind the scenes … the Biden administration is trying to change Title IX by a back door rule that would remove women and biological sex from the Title IX statute.”

“What they’re really trying to do is force us to comply,” she says. “They’re trying to regulate our speech and thought with the threat of punishment. … By denying the biological differences of men and women, they’re erasing women.”

Democrats are erasing objective reality by doing this. That’s really the issue here, she argues: “When one denies existence of objective truth, then there are no boundaries, no limits in society. Truth becomes whatever those in power want it to be.”
