As the Democratic Party continues to wither away in to a shell of its former, moderate self, there are bound to be a great many looking to get as far away from the fallout as possible.
Andrew Yang, for example, went from running for the Democratic presidential nomination to starting a completely bland and vague third party in a matter of just several years.
Now, joining the exodus is Hawaii’s Tulsi Gabbard, and she’s going out with a bang, that’s for sure.
Former Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard announced Tuesday she is leaving the Democratic Party.
Gabbard did not hold back:
“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 wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms, are hostile to people of faith and spirituality, demonize the police and 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.
It is unclear exactly what Gabbard’s next move could be, and there was plenty of wild speculation on Twitter as to what’s next for the controversial Congresswoman.
