On Thursday, former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard said that the Department of Justice targeting parents who protest mask mandates and Critical Race Theory at school board meeting is something “bigger” than just Democrat versus Republicans.
The military veteran gave a grave warning about a powerful elite that wants to silence Americans.
Gabbard made her remarks during an interview on “Fox News Primetime.”
“Every American should be concerned about what’s happening right now,” Gabbard told host Ben Domenech. “This is something that is bigger than Democrats vs. Republicans.”
Gabbard continued, “What we are seeing here is about the powerful elite in this country using their power to try to silence and control us.”
Gabbard said that “what is so dangerous about this situation is we have the attorney general essentially weaponizing our federal law enforcement agencies to intimidate and silence the American people to try to silence us into compliance, essentially.”
The Democrat observed Americans have free speech “whether our speech is quiet or obnoxious, our speech is protected by the First Amendment.”
Gabbard said that not only as a former member of Congress but as a member of the Army Reserve, she “took an oath to support and defend the Constitution and I may hate the speech that you say. I may completely disagree with it, but I will lay down my life to protect your right to say it.”
For Gabbard, her constitutional oath is everything.
She said it allows her “to stand up to speak out, to fight back, to take a stand for our freedom. The kind of action that we’re seeing from Attorney General [Merrick] Garland, it makes our country look more and more like we are moving to a police state rather than being the land of the free and so now is not the time to allow them to intimidate us into silence.”
Gabbard said Americans need to “stand for each other, for our civil liberties, for our freedoms.”
If Americans don’t take a stand, Gabbard warned that “those who are in power” will continue to try to take those rights away.
