Democrat slams own party for defyng common sense
Democrat Tulsi Gabbard torched her own party for their recent decision to remove gendered language from the House of Representatives.
Rep Gabbard (D-HI) slammed the move, calling it hypocritical for the party which claims to care about women’s rights.
Gabbard’s comments come after her recent legislation to ban biological men from competing in women’s sports.
During an interview with Tucker Carlson, Gabbard was asked how removing gendered language empowers women.
“It absolutely does the very opposite of that, and it’s the height of hypocrisy for people who claim to be the champions of rights for women to deny the very biological existence of women.”
“And this recent rule change that the House just actually voted and passed on today that you were talking about removing references to you know mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, from congressional rules and administration,” she added.
“It’s mind-blowing because it shows just how out of touch with reality and the struggles of everyday Americans people in Congress are.”
“But also, it shows that you know their first act as this new congress could have been to make sure that elderly Americans are able to get the COVID vaccine now alongside frontline healthcare workers, elderly Americans who have the highest mortality rates from this virus.”
“But instead of doing something that could actually help save people’s lives, they’re choosing instead to say well, you can’t say mother or father in any of this congressional language,” she continued.
Gabbard added that what the political Left is attempting to do “defies common sense” and “defies basic established science.”
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced the new rules for Congress which include a ban on “offensive” “gender-focused” terms such as “father, mother, son, and daughter.”
Pelosi and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA) unveiled the rules for the 117th Congress on Friday.
The elimination of gendered terms is part of a set of “future-focused” proposals, the House Committee on Rules said in a statement.
“This package, which will be introduced and voted on once the new Congress convenes, included sweeping ethics reforms, increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history,” the statement reads.
