Tulsi Gabbard, a former representative from Hawaii, has stated that she is leaving the Democratic Party because it is the party of the “powerful elite.”
The Tulsi Gabbard Show, a new YouTube series that Gabbard launched on Tuesday, debuted along with the announcement and an explanation of her choice, according to ABC News.
She titled the first episode, “Why I’m Leaving the Democratic Party,” and it lasts for 28 minutes.
Gabbard represented Hawaii as a Democrat in the House from 2013 until 2021.
Additionally, she made an unsuccessful bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential candidacy.
But as a result of the path the Democratic Party has taken under the Biden administration, she has now turned against it.
“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now completely controlled by an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms,” she wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.

In her YouTube episode, Gabbard addressed her concerns with the party and noted various negative aspects of Democrats in the present political climate.
Democratic Party members, according to Gabbard, are now “hostile to people of faith and spirituality, whose actions harm law-abiding Americans while demonizing the police and protecting criminals, who support open borders, use the national security state as a weapon against political rivals, and—most importantly—who are pushing the world closer to nuclear Armageddon.
“Now, I believe in a government that’s of the people, by the people, and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not. Instead, it stands for a government that is of, by, and for the powerful elite. Now, 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 the so-called ‘woke,’ Democratic Party idealogues are taking our country, then I invite you to join me,” she added.
Additionally, Gabbard specifically condemned Democratic policies that had gone too far in putting the United States in danger of going to war, especially those of the Biden administration.
“President Biden and Democratic Party elites have pushed us to the precipice of nuclear war, risking starting World War III and destroying the world as we know it. This is the most urgent and existential threat that we face,” according to Gabbard.
Gabbard reflected on her brief presidential campaign in 2020 and said she ran it because she was aware of the direction the Democrats were heading.
She attempted to bring up the topic, claiming that all indications pointed in the direction of this situation.
“But the politicians and the media completely ignored it. They didn’t care then and they don’t care now,” Gabbard said.
