Tulsi Gabbard leaves the Democratic Party, in the service of "a woke and warmongering elite"

"I call on my fellow independent-minded, common-sense Democrats to join me and leave the Democratic Party."

Tulsi Gabbard has served as a member of the House of Representatives from 2013 to 2021, and as Vice Chair of the Democratic Party for three years until 2016. And she was a candidate to lead the Democratic Party in the 2020 presidential election. She then stood out for her dialectic capacity, and for being critical of the woke branch of the party.

Now, Gabbard has decided to leave the Democratic Party, and has expressed this in a video he has shared on social networks. In it, he explains:

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. Who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms enshrined in our Constitution. Who are hostile to people of faith and spirituality. Who demonize the police and protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans. Who believe in open borders, weaponize the national security state to go after political opponents, and above all, who are dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.

In his speech he only announces that he is leaving the party, not that he is going to join the Republican Party. There is at least one issue that separates him from the Republicans, and that is his defense of abortion rights. But in his statement he echoes the words of the first Republican president in history: Abraham Lincoln:

I believe in a government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not. Instead, it stands for a government of, by, and for the powerful elite.

He also calls on more sensible Democrats to leave the party:

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, now I invite you to join me.
