Even Democrats are turning on Biden and his failed policies.
His support within his own party is collapsing.
And one former Democrat presidential candidate just stabbed him in the back in a way that Biden never saw coming.
Tulsi Gabbard is a former Democrat congresswoman from Hawaii and a former Vice Chair of the DNC during the 2016 election.
However, her views were always independent, and she broke from her party on several issues, including not wanting to provoke a nuclear war with Russia.
She was heavily attacked by Democrats during the 2020 Presidential race, when people like Hillary Clinton shredded her for being independent and not toeing the party line.
Now she has decided to get back at those Democrats by leaving the party completely.
According to Yahoo News, “Tulsi Gabbard says she is leaving the Democratic Party.”
“In a video posted to Twitter, the former U.S. congresswoman from Hawaii – who mounted an unsuccessful campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination – said she can ‘no longer stomach’ the direction that ‘woke Democratic Party ideologues are taking our country.’”
Gabbard had this to say in the video: “I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that’s under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers, who are 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, who are hostile to people of faith and spirituality, who 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 their political opponents, and above all, who are dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.”
“I believe in a government that’s of the people, by the people and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not. Instead it stands for a government that is of, by, and for the powerful elite.”
According to the article, Gabbard has also taken legal action against Democrats who made outrageous statements about her in the past.
The article continues, “She also sued Hillary Clinton for seeming to suggest that Republicans were ‘grooming’ Gabbard to be a spoiler as a third-party candidate. Clinton, who did not mention Gabbard by name, further suggested that she was ‘the favorite of the Russians.’”
Accusing people of being treasonous and getting paid by the Russians has been a favorite pastime of the Democrats in recent years.
And while Putin is obviously a brutal dictator and should be condemned, people also have a right under the Constitution to have whatever views about Vladimir Putin they want.
Furthermore, Gabbard is clearly correct that nuclear war should be avoided at all costs. No matter how monstrous of a dictator Putin is, blowing up the entire world just to spite him is a self-defeating project if there ever was one.
Tulsi Gabbard has finally abandoned the Democrat Party. And hopefully there will be a long line of people behind her waiting to leave as well.
