#RefundWarren: Bernie supporters go ballistic on Elizabeth Warren over last-minute sexism claim

#RefundWarren: Bernie supporters go ballistic on Elizabeth Warren over last-minute sexism claim

It’s Warren’s word against Bernie’s word on a private conversation in 2018 in which Warren claims Bernie made a sexist remark. If true, why did she sit on the claim until the eve of the final Iowa debate?

Just two days before the final Iowa debate, CNN ran a story — obviously leaked by the Elizabeth Warren campaign and based on second- and third- hand sourcing — claiming that in a private meeting in 2018, Bernie Sanders told her a woman couldn’t win the presidency.

That claim is frequently made by liberals lamenting how Hillary Clinton lost and the uphill fight women face on a national political stage. But coming in the ultra-woke Democratic primary, it was an incendiary accusation against Bernie.

Bernie vehemently denies the accusation.

Warren, using the denial of the CNN story by Bernie as the pretext, then issued a statement standing by the claim:

No one else was in the room. The Washington Post casts doubt on Warren’s claim:

Two people with knowledge of the conversation at the 2018 dinner at Warren’s home told The Washington Post that Warren brought up the issue by asking Sanders whether he believed a woman could win. One of the people with knowledge of the conversation said Sanders did not say a woman couldn’t win but rather that Trump would use nefarious tactics against the Democratic nominee.

Bernie supporters have started the hashtag #RefundWarren which is trending on Twitter. But the criticism goes beyond BernieBros. Peter Daou, a hardcore Hillary supporter and Democrat, is furious with Warren’s “low blow“:

Unless there is independent evidence of what happened in that private conversation, I’m going with Bernie telling the truth on this. Since 2012, we have been documenting Elizabeth Warren’s serial lies and manipulative stories about her own history, not just her Native American deception. Warren is cunning and manipulative, and dropping this claim on the eve of the final Iowa debate fits that pattern.

Particularly on the Native American claim, Warren not only lied, she lied about her lies.

Nathan Robinson, who appears to be a Bernie supporter, catalogs some of Warren’s deceptions at Current Affairs, The Credibility Gap:

Bernie is getting a taste of what we’ve been documenting since 2012.

This was a very Comey-like move by Warren’s campaign. She leaked the story, then used the denial of the leak to go on the record.

I think this will backfire on Warren.

Let them fight.
Does anyone have a problem with it?

It’s Warren’s word against Bernie’s word on a private conversation in 2018 in which Warren claims Bernie made a sexist remark.

Here’s a thought. They’re both lying.

Hard to believe though, right?

Bernie gone ballistic on EVERYTHING!

Gulags for “nazified trump voters”, 12-hour days of hard labor for billionaires, Milwaukee will burn down if he doesn’t get the nominations,…. it doesn’t end.

Also, Mark Levin played hours of old and new sound bites yesterday clearly proving Bernie is a hardcore communist. Including nationalizing the means of production, slashing personal liberties, virtually eliminating the free press…

The guy is a certified lunatic. I hope he gets the nomination because when we are done mocking him to death, he will probably hang himself. If there is one thing we know for sure, it’s that left-wing whack jobs have no sense of humor. Mockery just makes their heads explode. Rage, rage, rage.

With polling showing their combined support significantly above Biden there’s a lot at stake here. Will the far left do the smart thing and coalesce behind one of these nuts?

So they have reached the point where someone voicing a simple statement of belief, to them true, becomes “sexist” when certain people hear it.

He was a candidate running for President, as was Warren. He believed that he would win and become President, and since there is only one President at a time, no woman would become President in 2020.

This whole idea that the ear of the beholder is the test of whether something should be said is insane… Just like the “Hate crime”. And what was said couldn’t have been very upsetting since it had to simmer for two years before it was ready for prime time. Of course, Blasy-Ford sat on an “attempted rape” for decades before trotting it out at just the right time. These people are despicable and its kinda fun to watch them tear into each other.

#IDon’tTrustBernieAtAll, but Warren is just ridiculous. Honestly, having to choose between those two is like having a choice between 5 or 6 bullets in the chamber when playing Russian Roulette. Nobody wins, at least not for long.

Also, saying a woman can’t win isn’t sexist. It’s a prediction. If he’d said a woman isn’t capable of handling the job, that would be sexist.

If that upset your sensibilities wait till you see what Project Veritus broke.

Being that she’s 63/64ths liar, I’m not sure anyone actually believes anything she says.

Not looking into this particular case, but sexisst remarks tend to be true. That’s why they’re sexist.

Warren made a huge mistake by trying to kavanaugh* Sanders. If she had made a similar accusation against a Republican the MSM/DNC axis would treat it as Gospel Truth.

* – to “kavanaugh“ someone is to make a blatantly false accusation even though evidence and eyewitness testimony contradicts it.

I have no love for either of these totalitarian, Dhimmi-crat career apparatchiks, but, miserable and hectoring crone, Warren, has repeatedly proven herself to be a brazen and unrepentant serial prevaricator and fabulist. Her lies are too numerous to recount. Presenting herself as Native American, as a self-serving career move. Lying about being fired as a teacher, for being pregnant. Lying about her dad working as a janitor. Lying about representing corporations as an attorney.

This is such a transparently mendacious and sneaky move, stabbing Sanders with a shiv, to attain pole position in the Dhimmi-crat primary. The squaw is revealed, for the umpteenth time, as a mendacious, power-hungry, self-promoting and self-serving and miserable scold/nag/shrew.

“Unless there is independent evidence of what happened in that private conversation, I’m going with Bernie telling the truth on this.”

Disagree on this one. Warren is a serial liar but Bernie is totally the type of man who would say that a woman could not win the presidency.

This is where Warren’s past lies finally trip her up. She can be telling the truth but she has no credibility and no one will believe her.

Sanders is nasty in real life, Warren is said to be quite polite outside of the public eye. But she is nasty in the public eye. What a pair.

Popcorn time!

What a sick group of fascists – on both sides.

Then there are GOP enablers of fascism, like romney.

We are so fortunate mccain is gone. Imagine him still being around fighting for the democacts?

Remember the real moral of the story of the Boy Who Cried Wolf — that even liars sometimes tell the truth. The townspeople who ignored his warning felt they’d done the right thing, but they lost their sheep.

There’s a reason Stalin had gulags.

Both are liars. Go to hell both of you!

His actual words were, “I don’t think a half breed squaw can win against Trump”.

If true, why did she sit on the claim until the eve of the final Iowa debate?

1. “October surprise!” comes to mind.

2. She made it up like her ancestry.

3. Both.

It evoked memories of another infamous CNN ambush, when Bernard Shaw in 1988 crotch-kicked Mike Dukakis with a question about whether he’d favor the death penalty for someone who raped and murdered his wife, Kitty.

This time, the whole network tossed the mud. Over a 24-hour period before, during, and after the debate, CNN bid farewell to what remained of its reputation as a nonpolitical actor via a remarkable stretch of factually dubious reporting, bent commentary, and heavy-handed messaging.
