Former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard weighed-in this week on the escalating use of “cancel culture” to crackdown on free speech; saying the end result will resemble “ISIS and al Qaeda.”
“When you look at the foundation of our democracy, it is based on this ideal, this principle of freedom, freedom of speech, freedom for every single one of us to be able to share our ideas and debate them, to argue them, to agree or to disagree, to pick and choose in this marketplace of ideas, those that we deem to be right or wrong to be superior or inferior and even for those ideas that may be misleading or dangerous, that in this free marketplace, we have the right to then defeat those ideas with superior ones,” Gabbard said.

“So, let’s look down the path and say, ‘Okay, well, where does this cancel culture lead us?’ You see the final expression of cancel culture in Islamist terrorist groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda who basically go and behead those who … they deem to be infidels or heretics,” she added.

GABBARD ON HANNITY: ‘War Should Always Be a Last Resort’
Democratic presidential hopeful Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday night; slamming Hillary Clintons “war-mongering” foreign policy after she smeared her as a “Russian asset.”
“She’s basically accusing you of being a traitor… Slander is a big deal, your reaction?” asked Hannity.
“I’m proud to wear the uniform of this country… I’ve been deployed twice to the Middle East. I’ve seen first-hand the terribly high human cost of war. My job in Iraq was working in a field medical unit,” said Gabbard.
“Those of us who have seen the cost of war, we fight for peace. We’re not pacifists, sometimes war is necessary. But we see that war should always be a last resort. Hillary Clinton’s not only calling me a traitor, she’s sending a warning out to every veteran, anyone who stands up against war-mongering foreign policies,” she added.

Gabbard released a fiery video in response to Clinton’s comments earlier this week; calling Hillary the “queen of warmongers.”
“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you,” posted Gabbard on social media.
… powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.
