Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized the Democrat party for its treatment of military veteran and former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard following her departure from the party this week.
“So, if you want to know what the Democratic Party actually believes, don’t listen to what they say. ‘Oh, we want empowered women of color who are also veterans.’ No, they don’t,” Carlson said. “They want people who support regime change war. That’s their red line. That’s the one thing they will brook no dissent on whatsoever. They don’t care what you think about that. They don’t want to debate you on it. If you disagree or even ask questions, they go right to traitor.”
“So today, Tulsi Gabbard did what is probably inevitable and probably has been since 2016,'”Carlson continued. “She left her own party, the Democratic Party, and we don’t have to guess as to why because she explained it in some detail. And we ask you, please listen carefully to this, because it’s inspiring and interesting, and she did it on a new podcast called ‘The Tulsi Gabbard Show.'”
Carlson then played Gabbard’s video message explaining her reasons for leaving the Democratic Party.
“So, keep in mind, until today, this was a registered Democrat, an office holder, a standard-bearer of the Democratic Party, the future of the Democratic Party from the country’s most liberal state,” Carlson noted. “This was a liberal Democrat. Did you hear that? Is there a single word you disagree with? Is there a single word that the Republican who represents you, who you send money to, who you vote for, would repeat in public?”
“In other words, here you have someone who, until yesterday, was a member of the Democratic Party saying things the overwhelming majority of Republican voters believe, but only a tiny, a vanishingly small minority of Republican officeholders are willing to say out loud, because it’s too scary. Oh, it just tells you so much,’ Carlson concluded.
