Ex-presidential candidate and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard challenged President Joe Biden on Sunday, to "truly unite" Americans.
"Your leadership is needed now to denounce those like John Brennan & Rep Schiff who are advocating for targeting half the country as potential domestic terrorists. Truly unite the American people around our Constitution & the rights that are endowed to us by our Creator," read the tweet.
Gabbard was interviewed on Fox News where she spoke about the proposed measures for extra surveillance of alleged domestic terrorists.
"This is an issue that all Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians should be extremely concerned about, especially since we don't have to guess about where this goes or how this ends."
Gabbard slammed Brennan for including "even libertarians" in the list of "potential extremists", or "evangelical Christians". "Is it somebody who's pro-life?" asked Gabbard
"Where do you take this? You start looking at ok, obviously, has to be a white person, obviously likely male, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or maybe attended a Trump rally."
"Once you start walking along this path, you see where it leads, to a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting, and a targeting of almost half the country."
Response tweets were mixed, but one social media pundit was quick to point out that Biden was involved in creating an original draft of the Patriot Act.
"Doubt he [Biden] does that, he authored the first draft of the patriot act. Best of luck...", said one user.
This last tweet simply reads "Please switch parties and run in 2024."
