Elizabeth Warren Lost Because Women are Sexist

Elizabeth Warren Lost Because Women are Sexist, by Daniel Greenfield.

Senator Elizabeth Warren … only lost the Democrat primaries because of sexism. Hillary Clinton blamed Warren’s setbacks on “unconscious bias” and “gendered language”. …

“Sexism Sank Elizabeth Warren,” bleats The Nation. “Gender is at the core of this,” Salon insists.

There’s no such thing as gender when it comes to castrating 7-year-old boys, or in weightlifting competitions, but is a serious problem for the political ambitions of millionaire 70-year-old professors.

Vox even falsely claims that “women are feeling so defeated after Elizabeth Warren’s loss”.

If women are feeling so defeated by Warren’s primary faceplant, why didn’t they vote for her? …

The vast majority of women [in the Democrat primaries] did not vote for Senator Elizabeth Warren. They didn’t vote for her in the earliest primaries or on Super Tuesday. She did not manage to do any better than secure the votes of 1 in 5 women outside her own state. Either 80% of women are sexists or Warren was a terrible candidate.

Given a choice between condemning 80% of their own party’s women as sexists or admitting that Warren was an unpleasant and unlikable politician, the media chose Warren over women. …

If you believe the media, the Democrats are a diverse party of racist, sexist homophobes. Booker, Harris, and Castro all piteously beat the racism drum before going on their good riddance tour. When Buttigieg dropped out, it was homophobia’s turn. …

If the Democrats are really so racist, maybe it’s time to call it a day and break up this bigoted organization. The media has made a convincing case that black Democrats hate black people (Kamala Harris and Cory Booker had even less black support than Warren had female support), female Democrats hate women, and gay Democrats must be homophobes. …

Alternately, identity politics is really stupid.

Since that would be a heretical hate crime, we have to conclude that the Democrats are a hate group. …

How competent was Elizabeth Warren? … She even lost Cherokee County. Her enormous competence led her to lie about being an American Indian to advance her academic career and then to try and lie about it again with a DNA test that proves she’s 1/1024th honest. The climax of her competence led her to embrace Bernie’s socialist plan to destroy Medicare while claiming to be a capitalist. Warren was all things to all people and, paradoxically, nothing to anyone. Including women.

Identity politics is floundering near the rocks of reality.
