With out political parties pushing each other ever further into the polar ends of the societal spectrum, it should come as no surprise that a great deal of turbulence has arrived in the American system.
This two-party dichotomy is inherently tumultuous, as it dares us to push these political views to their equal and opposite extremes, like some Newtonian law that’s been culturally weaponized.
Now, as this consistent pressure continues to be applied, some of the Democratic Party’s former rising stars are reading the writing on the wall, and it’s sending them running for the hills.
Former Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard announced Tuesday she is leaving the Democratic Party.
She made the revelation in a video posted on social media, outlining the details of her farewell:
“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.”
And that wasn’t all:
“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.”
Gabbard has been increasingly at odds with the modern Democratic Party, with her recently more frequent criticisms seemingly foreshadowing this drastic decision.
