Why Is Tulsi Gabbard Leaving The Democratic Party?
Gabbard said in her statement that “anti-white racism” and “weakness” in the Democratic Party are the reasons why she is no longer a Democrat:
“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 weakness, which divide us by racializing every issue & stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms, hostile to people of faith & spirituality, demonize the police & protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans, believe in open borders, weaponize the national security state to go after political opponents, and above all, dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.”

“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 Tulsi Gabbard Show, a new podcast series on YouTube, was also launched at the same time as Gabbard’s announcement.
The first episode is a 28-minute one titled “Why I’m Leaving the Democratic Party,” in which she discusses how she initially became a member of the party as a young adult after being “inspired by Democrats who stood up against the war in Vietnam” and others who stood up for plantation workers in Hawaii.
She cited her concern that “President Biden and Democratic Party elites have pushed us to the brink of nuclear war, potentially beginning World War III and destroying the world as we know it” as one of the main reasons her 20 years as a member of the Democratic Party will come to an end.
Throughout the program and in her announcement, Gabbard emphasized several conventionally conservative talking points, reiterating right-wing buzzwords like “weakness” and “elites” and evoking language that senior GOP figures have frequently used.
She claimed that Democrats were responsible for converting American democracy into “a banana republic”—a label frequently used by Republican leaders, particularly to describe the FBI’s August raid on the Mar-a-Lago estate of former President Trump.
The raid on MAL is again another step in the weaponization of government agencies against the political rivals of the Regime, while individuals like Hunter Biden receive preferential treatment. Now that extra 87k IRS agents have been hired, how will the Regime use them against its enemies? The Banana Republic Following the raid, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis wrote.
