Tulsi Gabbard, despite being a former Democrat congresswoman, spoke at CPAC. During her speech, she railed against the cancel culture so everpresent in the Biden era, saying:
“We have too many people in positions of power whose foremost responsibility is to protect our freedoms and uphold our God-given rights, and yet they are the ones who are actually trying to take these rights away from us.
This is the biggest threat to our country. It is not coming from some foreign country — it is coming from power elites here at home and their co-conspirators in the mainstream media and the security state who are working to undermine our freedoms.”
Then, continuing her takedown of the tyrannical manner in which the security state is going after the freedoms of average Americans who dare do dissent, she said:
“But what’s even more dangerous than this threat of being canceled is the Federal Government wielding its power and might to punish those who dare to question those who disagree with them and their policies.”
Then, explaining why the security state and Biden apparatchiks are coming after patriots with such a vengeance, Gabbard highlighted the secular theocracy nature of the modern left, saying:
“If you replace the word ‘U.S. government’ with the word ‘church,’ we can see how those in power see themselves as the High Priest in a secular theocracy.
This explains why they see those who disagree with them as heretics. So, it’s not surprising that those who reject their leadership or views—these are the people who are targeted by Biden’s Attorney General as domestic terrorists—simply for holding anti-authority views.”
Hence why they’re so oppressive, so firm in their beliefs, and so willing to crack down on anyone who dissents: those who do so aren’t just of an opposing viewpoint, but are heretics.
Thus, because they’re heretics the left has no problem with treating them as enemies of the state. As Gabbard put it:
“Basically, what they are telling us is ‘you are an enemy of the state if you dare to oppose or even question the President, his administration or his policies—shut up, step back, fall in line or we’re coming after you.”
Watch her full speech here:
Gabbard is right, both about the cause and effect of the left’s application of the security state to cancel culture.
The radical leftists, having been indoctrinated with the secular theology of CRT, cultural marxism, or some similar collection of horrible ideas, are “all in” on both their beliefs and dealing with those who hold opposing viewpoints as religious enemies.
Hence why leftists in the CIA, FBI, and Clinton Campaign worked together to take down Trump and frame him as a Russian agent. To them, he wasn’t just a political enemy. He was a heretic to the modern, secular religion of leftism and thus had to be dealt with as such.
Cancel culture is bad. The left’s modern twist of adding the security state to it, as Gabbard points out, is far, far worse.
