Warren Strikes Back, Accuses Bernie Sanders of Sexism
Begun the Prog War has.
The stakes were high when Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren met at Warren's apartment in Washington, DC, one evening in December 2018... Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate: She could make a robust argument about the economy and earn broad support from female voters.
Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win.
That evening, Sanders expressed frustration at what he saw as a growing focus among Democrats on identity politics, according to one of the people familiar with the conversation. Warren told Sanders she disagreed with his assessment that a woman could not win, three of the four sources said.
This hit piece comes after Sanders had his people attack Warren as an elitist to voters. So, despite their mutual peace pact, they're at war,
It's fairly obvious that this accusation comes from the Warren camp. And it's a predictable line of attack. Warren is a woman. Probably. So accuse her opponent of sexism.
Does that mean it's not true?
Surely, Bernie "A woman enjoys intercourse with her man as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously" Sanders could never be guilty of such a thing.
Bernie, who just had to back off his Young Turk endorsement, whose campaign was rife with sexual harassment and discrimination.
The floodgates opened when it was revealed that six senior staffers from the Bernie campaign had complained about Carmona’s behavior. Instead of disciplining him, the Sanders campaign promoted their Latino Outreach man even higher in the campaign. The scandalous revelations soon dragged in Rich Pelletier, Bernie’s national field director, who was accused of covering up for Carmona.
Bernie’s national field director and deputy political director were in the middle of a political firestorm. Masha Mendieta, the California outreach director for the Sanders campaign, reported that in Chicago, “men and women were made to sleep together in open rooms on mattresses with no privacy or safety locks.”
“I remember feeling physically unsafe at that point. I sat on the stairs in that drab house being told I’d have to sleep in a room with three other men and felt nauseous,” she wrote.
In all fairness, Bernie, like most progs, treats his staff like garbage. Regardless of gender.
But yeah. Probably true.
Not that it's the biggest thing wrong with Bernie. There's the whole "reducing the entire country to a Communist hellhole" issue and the "palling around with Islamic terrorists" problem that come first.
