Former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard decimated radically anti-Trump musician Jack White in a scorching tweet posted Saturday.
“Jack White recently expressed his disdain for anyone who ‘normalizes’ Trump. In the meantime, what he wants us to do is normalize those in power abusing that power to go after political opponents, using the strong arm of the law as their goon squad,” she wrote.

Within 24 hours, the tweet garnered over 8,000 likes and almost 2,000 comments, the vast majority of them expressing agreement with her sentiment.
Never heard of the guy. Based on his comments, I have no interest in hearing more from him.

Jack White should go back to making mediocre imitations of better artists and stop commenting on things it’s clear he has difficulty comprehending.

Ah, yes, celebrity musicians – known for their eccentric lifestyles, unique political perspectives, and remarkable ability to connect with the everyday person. Surely they must be a font of knowledge we should all draw from.

It’s interesting how these people will call him all of the worst names they can think of, but when you ask them what he did as president that they disagree with they stumble for a response. It’s telling really… ad hominem attacks generally indicate lack of a cohesive argument.

Gabbard’s tweet was posted roughly two weeks after White went viral for posting a nasty, mean-spirited Instagram screed about virtually anyone who dares to treat former President Donald Trump as a fellow human being instead of some sort of monster.
“Anybody who ‘normalizes’ or treats this disgusting fascist, racist, con man, disgusting piece of shit Trump with any level of respect is ALSO disgusting in my book. That’s you Joe Rogan, you Mel Gibson, you Mark Wahlberg, you Guy Fieri. This is a statement from me, not a discussion/debate,” he wrote.
The post included pictures of Trump with all four of the gentlemen White had cited.

Why all the rage?
A day or so before White posted the hateful screed, Trump showed up to an Ultimate Fighting Championship fight, where he proceeded to greet and shake hands with all four men, among others.
This enranged White, because to him, the supposedly tolerant leftist, Trump is some non-human entity — the “other” — that must be maligned and ostracized at all times.
His hatred for Trump runs so deep that he quit Twitter in a fit of rage when Twitter boss Elon Musk reinstated Trump’s account last November.
“So you gave Trump his Twitter platform back. Absolutely disgusting, Elon. That is officially an asshole move. Why don’t you be truthful? Tell it like it is,” he whined in yet another Instagram screed at the time.
“People like you and Joe Rogan (who gives platforms to liars like Alex Jones etc.); you come into a ton of money, see the tax bill, despise paying your fair share, and then think moving to Texas and supporting whatever republican you can is going to help you keep more of your money (How else could trump possibly interest you?),” he added.

Notice all the leftist talking points about “paying your fair share.” FYI, White is reportedly worth $60 million.
Because White is long gone from Twitter, the social media network’s army of critics were unable to directly respond to his latest trash-talking.
However, they were still able to respond indirectly.
“He has blue hair and is in Hollywood. What a surprise that he’s morally bankrupt and not patriotic. He doesn’t care about the economy or anything else besides himself. He’s another liberal with nothing to offer society,” one Twitter user tweeted.
“No one other than his echo chamber is interested in this ‘HAS BEEN’ Jack White. Actually, not even the echo chamber listen to his music anymore. If someone is praising him, they’re doing it as a useful tool,” another added.

@jackwhiteofficial is an incredibly talented musician. It’s disappointing to witness someone with the potential to bring people together tear them down for their political beliefs. Your fascism is showing Jack. Do better.
