Tulsi Gabbard recently sent shockwaves through the political landscape with her announcement that she has left the Democratic Party.
In a lengthy address, Gabbard cited continued attacks on the family, religion & spirituality, freedom of speech, gun rights, and war-mongering—most of these being traditional conservative talking points, as her reason for leaving the party.
The thing about Tulsi Gabbard is that she isn’t a pariah or a deeply right-wing pundit.
Gabbard is emblematic of so many normal Americans who have been made politically homeless by the ever-leftward shifting of the Overton Window.
In her address, she urged others to follow her, in what may become a political exodus.
She further clarified her comments on her recent appearance on the Joe Rogan podcast, in which she explained that the Democratic Party is held captive by its most radical, leftist elements.
Though she has announced her intention to remain independent, this has not stopped conservatives from courting her politically, nor her from campaigning with them.
Here’s what she had to say:
Those who deny the biological differences between a man and a woman are not only erasing women as a category of people, they’re denying the existence of objective reality, and the “truth” becomes whatever those in power want it to be. https://t.co/y1DEKTq9T3

The New York Post reports:
Megyn Kelly urged former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard to join forces with Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem in a 2024 White House bid, joking that it would be “the best-looking ticket ever.”
Kelly asked Gabbard, who is officially an independent, if she considered “throwing your hat in the presidential ring for the other side” — alluding to the Republican Party.
