As the Democrat Party goes further Left, some are jumping ship. Tulsi Gabbard took the plunge, and she’s telling all.
And Tulsi Gabbard just revealed the final straw that made her leave the Democrat Party.
The Left has been getting more radical with every passing year.
They aren’t going to compromise on their plan to fundamentally change the United States in their image.
But not every Democrat is going along for the ride.
Democrats’ attacks on people of faith as well as their erasing God “from just about every facet of our public lives,” is one of the main reasons former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says she chose to leave the Democratic Party, asserting that many of their policymakers “think that they [themselves] are God” as they attempt to “control us in every possible way.”
Gabbard, who resigned from the Democratic Party in October, joined Fox News’ Kayleigh McEnany, who worked as former President Donald Trump’s press secretary, in lamenting how God was being “run out” of today’s culture.
“It’s ironic to me that God, someone you can trust, is being run out of society,” McEnany said in the Friday segment. “[And] we know he was an integral part of our founding, mentioned in many of our founding documents.”

While separation of church and state is “found nowhere in our founding documents,” charged McEnany, “it’s been utilized to create a religion of secularism.”
Turning to Gabbard, McEnany asked if the former congresswoman thought that “erasing, broadly, God out of society in a way perhaps our founders never intended” was damaging society.
The former presidential candidate replied, “there’s no question about it.”
“This erosion of this spiritual foundation of our country is a direct consequence of those who are trying to erase God from just about every facet of our public lives,” Gabbard said.
She also said that her choice to leave the Democratic Party was influenced by the erasing of God and attacks on religious practitioners.
“This is one of the main reasons why I chose to leave the Democratic Party: because I saw increasingly how not only were they trying to erase any mention of God, [but were] attacking people of faith, attacking people of spirituality, especially Christians,” Gabbard said.
She also argued that the consequences of such attacks have led much of the country in a direction that is causing damage “to families, to children, to our communities, [and] to our policymakers — many of whom think that they are God and are trying to control us in every possible way.”
The words come as the Democratic Party is increasingly perceived as antagonistic to God and religion.
Joy Ann Reid, a left-wing MSNBC anchor, stated that Americans are being “held hostage” by a “far-right Christian court,” as she criticized the Supreme Court’s different rulings, which she claimed typically rule “in favor of religious institutions.”
Likewise, Iowa’s lone Democrat in Congress, Rep. Cindy Axne, made fun of Christians during an out-of-state campaign event with a far-left activist group.
Previously, famed Christian evangelist Franklin Graham decried the Democratic National Convention’s total lack of God, calling on Americans to bring God back into public life.
Gabbard, who served Hawaii’s second congressional district from 2013 to 2021, announced her departure from the Democratic Party in a social media video last year:
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 & stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms, are… pic.twitter.com/oAuTnxZldf

“I believe in a government that is of, by, and for the people,” she said. “Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not.”
“Instead, it stands for a government of, by, and for the powerful elite,” she added.
The former Democrat has long been a critic of both the pro-war foreign policy establishment and “wokeism,” both of which are currently led by the Democratic Party.

She is currently working on a memoir that will be published later this year on her choice to leave the Democrats.
