Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has warned that America’s “power elite” will “silence and cancel” anybody “who dares challenge or question” the agenda of Joe Biden and the Democrats.

Speaking to USA Today, Gabbard blasted the Biden administration for its attack on podcaster Joe Rogan.

Gabbard warned that the Democrats’ effort pointed “to a bigger issue,” which is “the power elite trying to silence and cancel people who dare to question the establishment narrative.”

Gabbard stated:

“Yeah, I mean, I’ve gotten to know Joe [Rogan] and consider him a good friend; he’s like the nicest, most generous, humble guy, and I think he’s done the right thing in addressing these issues that have come up; very directly, very honestly and been very ready to admit how he can be better and apologizing.

“I think it’s what we would hope to get from anyone, really.”

“And I think how not only a lot of the kind of the corporate response has been, but also, frankly, the White House inserting itself into trying to cancel Joe Rogan points to the bigger issue, which is really the attempts by the power elite trying to silence and cancel people who dare to question the establishment narrative, who dare to maybe hold a different view,” Gabbard continued.

“And that response, trying to cancel people.

“Silence them and smear their character, is the age-old tactic.

“I’ve been on the receiving end of it, so I know exactly how that feels.

“And it is so dangerous because it undermines free speech in America.”

On February 1, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had urged Spotify to take further action against Rogan after Spotify announced it would tag alleged controversial episodes with a new warning label, which Gabbard referenced in her statement.

Gabbard tweeted, “I may disagree with what you say, but I’m willing to sacrifice my life to protect your right to say it.

“The campaign to silence @JoeRogan shines a light on the bigger issue: the power elite will silence anyone who dares challenge or question their power.”
