TULSI GABBARD (GUEST): They're proud to be judging people, hiring people, selecting people based on race, which is really -- let's be clear -- how serious of a problem this is. It's based on genetics, race, based on your blood, your genes. And where do we see that connection? Well, these are the very same geneticist core principles embodied by Nazism and Adolf Hitler. And this should be something that is sickening and alarming to every single Democrat and every single American. We have seen where this philosophy can lead.


JESSE WATTERS (HOST): You're saying the focus on genetics is, in a way, similar to what was going on in Germany? 

GABBARD: You look at the core values and core principles of Adolf Hitler and Nazism. What is it based on? It's based on genetics. This is that philosophy of geneticism and discriminating against people based on their genes. And that's the issue here, really when you cut to the core of it. When they're standing there saying, hey, we are proud to be selecting people solely based on race, that is alarming to me on so many levels. You see them, oh, we were going to select someone based on their race, based on their gender, these immutable characteristics that we're born with.

This goes against, again, the very vision our founders had for us. It goes against traditional Democratic values. And most of all, the American people deserve to know that those in positions of power and leadership are putting their interest first regardless of race or gender or religion or politics or anything else. That's the responsibility of our leaders and that's what we, the American people, deserve. 

WATTERS: Yeah, I'm not sure about the German thing, but I think you are right on this point.
