Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is never afraid to call out her own party. In fact, she isn’t the most popular Democratic representative because she’s often more moderate than her colleagues.
Gabbard, who even supported former President Donald Trump on some policies, addressed the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riots in a recent Twitter video.
First, she condemned the mob that descended on D.C. But she didn’t stop there.
After saying the rioters tried to stop Congress from carrying out its constitutional responsibilities, and behaved “like domestic enemies of our country,” Tulsi added something important.
And it’s this addition that could once again rile her fellow Democrats.
She specifically named “greater threats” to America and on that list were people like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is typically viewed as a far-left official.
… trying to undermine our constitutionally-protected rights and turn our country into a police state with KGB-style "surveillance" are also domestic enemies—and much more powerful, and therefore dangerous, than the mob which stormed the capitol. …

Gabbard also calls out former CIA Director John O. Brennan and the “oligarchs of Silicon Valley.”
She maintained her focus on constitutional rights while saying:
But let’s be clear, the John Brennans, Adam Schiffs, and the oligarchs in Big Tech who are trying to undermine our constitutionally protected rights and turn our country into a police state with KGB-style surveillance are also domestic enemies, and much more powerful, and therefore dangerous, than the mob that stormed the Capitol.
Then Gabbard played a recent clip of Brennan saying Biden nominees “are now moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover” activities he compared to “insurgency movements.”
Gabbard – and others – view this as a potential hindrance to our civil liberties, and that’s why it should be a primary concern.
As she also posted on Twitter:
President Biden, I call upon you and all members of Congress from both parties to denounce efforts by Brennan and others to take away our civil liberties endowed to us by our Creator and guaranteed in our Constitution.
If you don’t stand up to them now, then our country will be in great peril.
Gabbard doesn’t always follow the liberal playbook, as you can see.
Though it’s important for her to call out the riots, she took the opportunity to call out other problems in our country. And these are problems everyone, including Democrats, should acknowledge.
Whether or not the Biden administration will heed Gabbard’s calls remains to be seen.
