Former Hawaii Democrat congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard reacted Wednesday during an interview with Fox News Sean Hannity after 79-year-old Joe Biden alleged that the “MAGA crowd” is “the most extreme political organization” in “recent American history.”
His assertion came in response to a question about Monday night’s leak draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito regarding Roe v. Wade.
“It’s worse than ridiculous. It is absolutely despicable and outrageous,” Tulsi Gabbard expressed of Joe Biden’s claim.
“When you look at the president of the United States America calling millions of Americans essentially terrorists — people who politically opposed him, or voted against him — he’s calling them terrorists in an attempt to intimidate them into silence,” Gabbard said.
“We know this because we’ve heard this before from both him and his attorney general. You remember when his attorney general said, you know, anyone who holds extremists or anti-authority views, will be targeted for investigation and potential prosecution by their domestic terrorists unit,” she explained of the DOJ’s announcement earlier in the year.
“So [Biden] is essentially saying this quote, unquote ‘MAGA crowd’ are worse than terrorists,” Gabbard said. Continued Below
“This is outrageous and so for every America who is [listening] … no matter how you feel about the MAGA crowd, this is an authoritarian assault on our freedom, and we need to stand together very strongly against this attempt to intimidate and silence anyone who holds political views that are different from or opposed to what this president and his administration are furthering”, she recommended.
“This is an assault on our democracy,” Gabbard added.
She also advised Americans to “condemn Biden’s authoritarian effort to intimidate those who oppose him politically into silence”. Video Below

Last month, Biden also asserted, “This ain’t your father’s Republican Party. This is a MAGA party now. These guys are a different breed of cat. They’re not like who I served with so many years. And the people who know better are afraid to act correctly, because they know they’ll be primaried.”
