Widespread efforts to silence speech deemed to be offensive threaten US constitutional rights, Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard says. Her latest campaign ad takes aim at the hot-button issue of political correctness.
In a new campaign video posted on Twitter, Gabbard lists political correctness alongside things like overly powerful IT corporations and government overreach. All three infringe on Americans’ personal rights, she says.
“Big tech, overreaching government, political correctness – our constitutional rights are under attack. As president, I’ll protect your rights to free speech, civil liberties and personal privacy, because they’re essential to our American values and must never be compromised.”
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper seemed to celebrate the idea of white people no longer constituting the majority of those in the United States.
“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” he said.
He made those comments while interviewing Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, who has openly advocated for more open immigration policies.
