Tulsi Gabbard, a former US representative for Hawaii, denounced her alignment with the Democrat party today. She launched her new podcast, The Tulsi Gabbard Show, (what a creative name, why not try The Turncoat Tales instead?) to make her announcement.
“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party. It’s now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoking anti-white racism, who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms enshrined in our Constitution,” Gabbard said.
Gabbard has been a unique player in the Democrat field. She openly criticized the Democratic open border policies and supported police officers during the rise of defunding law enforcement. All the while she checked the diversity boxes of “becoming the first American Samoan and practicing Hindu in Congress.”
A Twitter page full of slander against the Biden administration and interviews with Fox News’ favorite hosts could lead one to believe Gabbard is a member of the GOP already. However, after dropping out of the 2020 presidential election she endorsed Biden.
"I'm confident that he will lead our country, guided by the spirit of aloha respect and compassion, and thus help heal the divisiveness that has been tearing our country apart,” Gabbard said.
In 2020 she endorsed Biden thinking he would do well, so did a lot of Americans, why is this reason for concern? Gabbard is like a chameleon, she changes her “values” every election season.
A week after announcing her campaign for the 2020 presidential election Gabbard released a weak apology video for her past views on the LGBTQ community. The past being her involvement with the Alliance for Traditional Marriage where she aided her father in the 90s and early 2000s.
“I’m so grateful to my friends and loved ones, both gay and straight, who have patiently helped me see how my past positions on these issues were at odds with my values,” Gabbard said.
That’s two changed views within a two year span, here’s a third. Gabbard discussed why she used to be pro-life, but is now pro-choice. She said she takes a more libertarian view and does not think the government should mandate whether a woman can choose to have an abortion or not.
But she also thinks abortion should not be allowed into the third trimester. Who mandates those kinds of things, Gabbard? Who are you to put a time limit on a woman’s choice? If only there was some sort of establishment created to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Tulsi’s tone-deaf Twitter account remained silent on the day Roe. v. Wade was overturned and instead she chose to discuss concealed carry laws. Did someone forget to turn off pre-scheduled posting?
Gabbard’s primary critiques of the Biden administration recently revolve around the state of the economy and the immigration crisis. These are issues that most Americans, Democrats too, are not happy with right now. The Democrats are at war with DeSantis for sending them too many immigrants.
Gabbard’s plan to strengthen the economy though is to tax the rich to pay for everyone’s college, have the government pay for healthcare and raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. Which, oddly enough she changed her mind about minimum wage too.
The one outlandish position in the realm of Democrats Gabbard holds is her passion to separate participation in sports by biological sex.
Who knows though, given her track record she could change her mind about transgenderism too. Gabbard plays both sides of the party lines and is capitalizing on the failure of her former party. Her more recent stances will win her more votes should she run in 2024.
While hiding behind whatever views are popular, Tulsi may end up being a Trojan horse.
