(Republican Insider) – Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii has a habit of speaking plainly and calling things out for the way they are. Oftentimes that puts her at odds with her own political party. She’s a Democrat but is no party lackey.
During an Aug. 17 appearance on Fox News’ Jesse Watters Primetime, Gabbard revealed what she believes is “the great threat to our democracy” and it’s not the typical groups we’re used to hearing Democrats go on about.
Gabbard bucked against her party’s many false narratives and instead called out the Deep State, or as she put it “permanent Washington.”
Gabbard explained, “When you look at permanent Washington, you look at all the different hands that are involved. And as we’re seeing this whole situation play out over the last couple of weeks, we see very prominently placed is the national security state and the mainstream media. And you’ve outlined some of these changing narratives and new information when they see the old piece of information wasn’t quite having the impact that they wanted.”
“It’s hard not to be skeptical when you look at their tactics and their timing to really question what their motives are. To leverage their power and their influence. To have an impact on these midterm elections that voters will be going to vote at in just a few weeks. And to do what they have already stated publicly is their objective, which is to prevent Donald Trump from running for president in 2024. This is not something new,” she concluded.
Gabbard tweeted out the interview on Aug. 22: “The greatest threat to our democracy is not Trump voters or parents protesting at school board meetings, but the permanent Washington elite which has weaponized the govt and teamed up with corporate media to intimidate and silence those who dare to disagree with them.”

That sounds awfully reminiscent of Trump’s remark to Sharyl Attkisson on Full Measure back in 2020 when he said, “What am I doing? I’m fighting the deep state.” he said, adding, “I’m fighting the swamp…If it keeps going the way it’s going, I have a chance to break the deep state. It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country.”
Unfortunately, Trump lost the stolen election and didn’t get a chance to finish the work he started while in office. However, he has already vocalized his desire to immediately get back to it by “firing the swamp” should he return to the White House in 2025.
Other Republicans have also been calling out this “permanent Washington” and the threat it poses to our country, such as Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar, who tweeted: “The Deep State must be fired. Obama embedded tens of thousands of leftists into the bureaucracy. They obstructed Trump every day. The bureaucracy must be gutted before we have any hope of truly putting America First.”

Dinesh D’Souza applauded Gabbard for daring to buck against her party’s narrative and also wondered why there aren’t more Republicans calling out the Deep State.
I’m grateful for Tulsi Gabbard taking a stand here, but why don’t we get this sort of clarity more often from Republicans? https://t.co/ZyO2Du3XnE

While Gabbard is a Democrat she is certainly fearless when it comes to speaking the truth and refusing to conform to the Democratic Party’s narratives. You won’t find her pushing the left’s propaganda.
We need more politicians like Gabbard who see the blatant corruption and want to fight it, regardless of their political party affiliation.
