Former Congresswoman and 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard announced in a recent video she is officially leaving the Democratic Party.
In a clip originally recorded for her new Rumble show and released on Twitter, Gabbard went into depth on why she is choosing to walk away.
“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that’s under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoke anti-white racism, who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms, that are enshrined in our constitution…who are hostile to people of faith & spirituality, demonize the police but protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans, who believe in open borders, who weaponize the national security state to go after political opponents, and above all, dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.”
Gabbard continued, “Now, I believe in a government that is of, by, and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not. Instead, it stands for a government of, by, and for the powerful elite. I’m calling on my fellow common sense independent-minded Democrats to join me in leaving the Democratic Party. If you can no longer stomach the direction that so-called woke Democratic Party ideologues are taking our country, I invite you to join me.”
The move may come as a surprise to the casual observer, but to the seasoned political junkie, the decision is not unexpected. Gabbard often made war within her own ranks. She was considered a “rogue” or “outsider” candidate during the 2020 election cycle. Criticizing neoliberal and neoconservative war policy, Gabbard made enemies along foreign policy lines.
In recent weeks, Gabbard has been attacking the Biden administration for border issues, inflation issues and even went after VP Kamala Harris for her comments on North Korea.
The party switch comes weeks before a midterm election to decide control of congress.
