Anti-LGBTQ+ Politician Tulsi Gabbard Is Leaving Democratic Party
Tulsi Gabbard, a former congresswoman and presidential aspirant noted for her anti-LGBTQ+ record, has announced that she’s leaving the Democratic Party.“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party,” Gabbard said in a video posted Tuesday from the first episode of her new podcast, The Tulsi Gabbard Show. “It’s 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 enshrined in our Constitution, and who are hostile to people of faith and spirituality.” She said the matter had been on her mind and troubling her for some time.She claimed that President Joe Biden’s administration is targeting as terrorists “parents who are vocally standing in opposition to radical curriculums and explicit sexual content being taught to their kids in public schools.” Gabbard went on to say the administration is erasing women by supporting transgender people.She also accused the administration of undermining law enforcement and the Supreme Court, treating “pro-life” protesters unfairly, seeking to quash gun rights and free speech, and above all moving the world closer to nuclear war, apparently through supporting Ukraine in its fight against Russia’s invasion.Gabbard, the first Hindu elected to Congress, represented a Hawaii district in the U.S.
