Must See: Tulsi Gabbard Defies Her Party's Racism

Written By BlabberBuzz | Thursday, 11 November 2021 09:30

Former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard called politicians to reject the "racialization" of politics in recent days.

On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," host Tucker Carlson said Gabbard is one of a handful of rising Democratic voices that are pushing back on their party's divisive and increasingly extreme rhetoric and policies. Carlson asked Gabbard about that remark and whether it represents an emerging trend within the Democratic Party sans the far-Left.

"I think that really is the critical thing here, is that when we have Democrats and Republicans in positions of leadership, of course, there are going to be disagreements on different issues or how we approach solving the problems of the American people," Gabbard replied. "But so long as the goal is the same, the goal being, hey, we want to do what's best for the American people and our country, then we know that progress is possible."

"That's where we absolutely need more than just sane leaders because the problem is bigger than just insanity." Gabbard continued. "The problem is that what we have now is leaders who are so willing to manipulate the American people to further their own selfish, political interest, or money or power or whatever it is, and we see this very clearly in how everything in the country is being racialized."

Gabbard describes racialization as an "intentional strategy to tear us apart based on the color of our skin" without realizing the damage being done in the wake of such ideas. The former Hawaii representative then pointed to the election of Glenn Youngkin as Virginia Governor as a contradiction to the racialization of politics.

"You saw Terry McAuliffe represented the fomenting of divisiveness, the racialization, and Virginia voters rejected that intent -- regardless of political party," she said. "This is what I hope we see more of in the country that voters take a stand and make a choice, Democrat or Republican, we want leaders who sincerely care for our people and care for our country and who will serve those interested in service above self."

Gabbard served as a representative for Hawaii from 2013 to 2021, then made a bid for the presidency in the 2020 Democratic primaries. She has since become a popular commentator in Conservative circles.

"This is what we as voters need to reject and choose leaders who do put the American people and our country first and share the objective from both political parties," the former presidential candidate concluded.
