NEW YORK (Diya TV) — Former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard, the first Hindu member of the U.S. Congress and a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, has revealed a groundbreaking collaboration with Elon Musk to host a show on the X platform dedicated to defending free speech. The social media giant, formerly Twitter and now owned by Musk, is set to launch three new shows featuring Gabbard, former CNN anchor Don Lemon, and sports radio host Jim Rome.

Gabbard, a 42-year-old political figure, expressed her commitment to sharing the stories of those whose “voices have been silenced” and emphasized the importance of safeguarding free speech in America. In a post shared on X, she stated, “Freedom of speech is a fundamental right in America. Sadly, we live in a time where debate, dialogue, and dissent can be the cause for cancellation and censorship by those in power. To defend free speech, we must use it.”

The partnership with X, according to Gabbard, aims not only to protect free speech but also to celebrate it. She highlighted their plans to bring forth stories and news shedding light on the truth of current events while addressing the narratives suppressed by those in power. Additionally, a series of short films will be produced to amplify the voices of individuals impacted by censorship.

On October 11, 2022, Gabbard announced her departure from the Democratic Party, condemning it as an “elitist cabal of warmongers.” Accusing the party’s leadership of “cowardly wokeness,” anti-white racism, and pushing the nation closer to nuclear war, Gabbard voiced her dissatisfaction with the party’s direction.

Following her exit, Gabbard, a military veteran who served in the Iraq war, expressed confidence that both President Joe Biden and German dictator Adolf Hitler share a “mentality” inclined towards authoritarianism. Her critical stance extends to Biden’s foreign policy, blaming his administration for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

In a broader context, X announced three content deals with prominent figures, including Don Lemon and Jim Rome, as part of its strategy to enhance video content on the platform. This move is seen as an attempt to attract advertisers and revitalize the platform, which has faced challenges since Elon Musk’s acquisition in 2022. The blog post emphasizes X’s transformation into a “video-first platform,” with users engaging in video content during 80 percent of their sessions. The new shows, including “The Don Lemon Show” and Jim Rome’s streaming series, are poised to contribute to the platform’s resurgence and serve as a space for free speech on a global scale.
