This after an AP reporter ran a piece "exploiting" the racially-motivated mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, which Gabbard said was both "offensive" and "egregious," and referred to the outlet by a new name: "Associated Propaganda."
"I know you remember as well as I do back when the AP was a trusted news source that would objectively just report the news, just report information. They have now become the "Associated Propaganda," seeing how they're inserting their political bias in political narrative, writing pieces that sound a lot more like opinion pieces than they do just actually reporting the news. And especially in this situation, how offensive and egregious it is that they're exploiting this terrible tragedy to once again advance their own political agenda, which is completely aligned with the agenda of the Democrat elite," Gabbard told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Tuesday.
"They don't care about the people. They don't care about information. They don't care about facts. They don't care about the consequences, the devastating and dangerous consequences of their actions," Gabbard continued. "We, the American people, we just want information. We want these people to show us the respect of being intelligent human beings, adults. We have a will of our own. We can draw your own conclusions based on the facts that we receive. But they don't see us as that."
"They disrespect us and our intelligence by assuming that they can just feed us whatever propaganda they want. We're just going to soak it up," Gabbard added. "We're not that stupid."
On Aug. 26, a masked man shot and killed three black Americans at a Dollar Tree store in Jacksonville, Florida in a racially motivated attack. While Democrat politicians and mainstream media used the racially motivated mass shooting as an opportunity to push for more gun control, County Sheriff TK Waters placed the blame on the individual, not the weapon.
Sheriff Waters, like Gabbard, slammed those who pushed the narrative that the firearm was the problem and urged people to see the crime for what it was, a bad guy with a gun.
Tulsi Gabbard, a longtime Democrat Congresswoman in Hawaii and former candidate for the Democratic nomination for US President in 2020, announced last October that she is leaving the Democrat Party. Gabbard cited elitism, a penchant for war, a hostility toward people of faith, and the racialization of "every issue" as reasons that she is walking away, and urged other Americans to do so as well.
