LAWRENCE JONES III, FOX NEWS HOST: Here to reply, Tulsi Gabbard, former Hawaii Congresswoman, and a former presidential candidate. Congresswoman, thanks a lot for becoming a member of us tonight.
TULSI GABBARD, FORMER DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Thank you.
JONES III: You know, I’ve been following you on Twitter and a few of your public feedback. Part of probably the most, probably the most regarding factor that I’ve been seeing from the media is that they don’t do not forget that time, apparently, or they’ve amnesia. People didn’t really feel protected. And I’m not advocating for vigilante justice. But when authorities doesn’t do its job, folks step as much as defend themselves.
GABBARD: That’s precisely proper. And I don’t, I’d not assume that they’ve amnesia, as a result of while you suppose again to that point, we bear in mind very clearly that instantly after this incident, this tragedy occurred with Kyle Rittenhouse, the mainstream media, pro-Antifa politicians have been very fast to say this child is a white supremacist terrorist. And so even at the moment, within the midst of all of that chaos, there was no real interest in saying, ‘hey, you know what, this is a tragedy, the crisis that the city is facing is is a tragedy, let’s really wait and observe the proof and let this work itself by our judicial system.’ The authorities completely failed to meet this most elementary accountability of holding their group protected. Kyle Rittenhouse shouldn’t have gone and accomplished what he did. But as you stated, , he’s a silly child who, like others in the neighborhood felt like they’d no different selection however to step up and to attempt to do their half to maintain folks protected.
JONES III: You know, congresswoman, I’ve an issue with the inconsistency that I see from the left, and folks that declare to be civil libertarians that wished to struggle for the rights of the folks. If you agree that the state ought to have the knee on somebody’s neck and kill him, then how may you help the state deliberately focused a younger man that it reveals within the video that’s self protection? It reveals on the witness stand, the personal prosecution’s witness admitted that he aimed his gun at him first.
GABBARD: This is, that is the issue right here, proper? Is that there isn’t a care or curiosity in proof, or the details, or justice. Really, it’s about politics. It’s about hey, are you one among us or are you one among them? Are you on our workforce? Or are you the quote unquote, ‘enemy’? And as we’ve seen on this instance, and others, when you’re not on our workforce, then you’re a racist, you’re a white supremacist, you’re a terrorist. And they levy out these allegations actually with out care once more, for the proof, details or the implications. And we’re seeing the identical factor taking place right here with the decide on this trial due to his ringtone being a patriotic track, ‘God Bless The USA,’ oh clearly, they’re saying hey, he’s he’s biased in the direction of Kyle Rittenhouse. So, what conclusions are we to attract from that? That when you love America, then you’re a white supremacist? This is the craziness of what we’re seeing play out right here, which actually for me, , it reveals that they hate America, that they’ve such disdain for many who love America that that is the allegation that they throw out, and particularly offensive as we sit right here on Veterans Day. This disdain extends to those that’ve put on or worn the uniform, who have been keen to sacrifice their lives to serve our nation. It’s extraordinarily offensive and they need to be ashamed of themselves.
JONES III: They ought to however they’re not as a result of they wish to take down political opponents. That is strictly what that is about and it’s unhappy. Congresswoman, thanks on your honesty right here tonight on this system. Hope you come again.
