Former Democrat Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard called out two-time failing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party on Tuesday during an interview with Joe Rogan, saying if you go against them, “you’re dead.”

“I think the Democratic Party leaders, people like Hillary Clinton,  people who’ve been in charge for a very long time, foment this kind of culture of fear and like, hey, if you go against us, like you’re dead, you’re on the s**t list,” she said.

This comes after Gabbard announced she is officially leaving the Democrat Party.

Gabbard explained why she left the Democrat Party, saying, “They don’t believe in freedom of speech or freedom of thought. And for anyone who brings an opposing view, they choose to shut you up, silence you, smear you, try to ruin you or undermine your character and credibility,” Gabbard.

“You have kind of the very loud activists who don’t represent, I think, even the majority of the Democratic Party, but the AOCs of the world who are almost like these radical religious zealots, and they are idealogues and whatever they choose is the battle of the day, if you are against them on that, forget it. You’re done,” Gabbard added.

“The people in charge of the Democratic Party, whether they actually hold positions, or they are just influential in the Democratic Party, have created this cult-like atmosphere and fomented this fear so much so that the people who are in a position to impact this, to stand up against this, to say, ‘hold on guys this is literally insane and needs to stop’ — they’re too afraid to do so because of what the ramifications will be,” she explained.

“The Democratic Party that I joined doesn’t exist anymore,” she said.

“The party that was, you know, the party of JFK, of Dr. Martin Luther King, the party of inclusivity, the big tent party that welcomed and encouraged this marketplace of ideas and conversations and people who held different views; the party that championed women and equality and the rights of people in our society. That party doesn’t exist anymore,” she elaborated.

“They’re undermining families, they don’t believe in the rule of law,” she added.

“It’s all about themselves, their power and their maintaining control, and that’s the real threat to our democracy that they pose is they don’t believe in freedom of speech, they don’t believe in freedom of thought, they don’t believe in freedom of religion. All they believe is in you’ve got to buy into whatever they’re selling at any given day,” she said.
