Warren has made the biggest own-goal of the campaign season

When even MSNBC takes Bernie's side you know that you've screwed up.

The hashtag "WomenForBernie" trended Tuesday on Twitter amid an escalating feud between White House hopefuls Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

The online campaign, which had more than 10,000 tweets as of Tuesday afternoon, came in response to reports and statements on Monday about a private discussion the two candidates had in December 2018.

          This reminds me of a day at a hearing that was structured to follow courtroom rules. This expert hydrologist was testifying but because of the standards of courtroom protocol he was able to insert lies into the record unchallenged.

          I hate that the same thing is happening in this situation.

          While I love humanity I really despise people! Particularly this reporter.

RIP

@Wally I don't have even the words to articulate my frustration with this show and its content. They aren't even pretending anymore to be anything but propaganda spewed by below-average political operatives. In fact, just isolating Meghan McCain, one reaches mediocrity level.

This takes me back to when the Omnishambles Clinton campaign manufactured the BERNIE SO SEXIST nonsense. To my mind, that was as successful as it was for her for two reasons: a huge and vocal army of moronic hilbots (I don't think Warren's supporters collectively are nearly as fanatical or as maniacal), and a much firmer grip of control over mainstream media; Warren does not have that either. I've read somewhere that some poltergeists from the Clinton campaign are sleazing around in the Warren campaign now, and while I haven't bothered to read up on it further, this bullshit reeks of the genius of that mouldy brain trust. The Sexism 2.0 launch has gone over like a lead balloon, and I'm here for it.

@Le Frog What’s next? “Thirteen anonymous sources within the Warren campaign say Sanders is a Socalist!” Sheesh.

The Clinton camp tried this already and, aside from the people who were going to believe it anyway, it didn’t stick. It’s just baffling to think what Warren hoped to gain from this. For someone who is allegedly smart, she is real dumb at politics.

OTOH, seeing even MSDNC saying “this doesn’t sound like Bernie” is jaw dropping. While I do have to wonder what their angle is, this is the most positive thing I’ve seen towards Sanders this season.

#Refund me Warren is all over Twitter. Many, many people are asking Liz to refund their donations. And remember Warren called out Bernie for 'trashing' her through his supporters. I don't know why people thought that anyone was responsible for every damn thing their supporters said. Didn't that start with Hillary's campaign and pushed by Brock when his supporters were called Bernie bros? Also remember Hillary's posting that picture of Obama in a Madras making it look like he was Muslim. Yeah this crap has Hillary's fingerprints all over it.

if you mean "Winter" then could be. But if you include the entire campaign I think that DNA test to show 1/64th Native American ancestry was a colossal own goal.

EDIT: I see that it's not 1/64th but 1/1024th!

The results show that Warren is 1/1,024 Native American, or .09%. For context, the average European-American is reportedly.18% Native American

@Shahryar that blew up early in the cycle. Imagine if more people had been paying attention. Or if a bigger deal was made out of the fact that Trump goaded her into the DNA test.

Of course, she’s continued to make more unforced errors since, of which this is that latest and maybe fatal? Who knows?

My high cheekbones. My parents had to elope because one was part Indian. My uncle told me that I was. And 20 other excuses for why she thought she should get special treatment all through her life.

As someone mentioned here, Warren didn't just decide to become a democrat. Democrats moved to the right so far they became republicans. And Warren could then fit in with them. She has come a long way from the days she tried to get the bankruptcy bill stalled. I see you Liz for who you really are.

Just remembered..she recently gave a speech about how the banks bought and flipped houses. Well guess what. Liz did that too. She was making so much money she leant it out to her family so they could get in on the fun.

@Shahryar @Shahryar that simple, as this article suggests and discusses the ancestry vs genetics issue. Basically the test she underwent cannot be quite as precise as some would wish, and the estimate is that her NA ancestry, which exists, apparently goes back from 6-10 generations ago, which is problematic itself in assigning precise numbers to her situation. It is stated that she could be anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1024 NA. Obviously Trump and the GOP emphasize the latter number.

Edit: It's also unclear from a DNA basis whether or not she has more or less NA in her than the average American. Dispute over a proper sample of "average Americans' for this purpose from which to measure others.

Read the article for yourself, as it gets quite detailed and goes beyond my jurisdiction. In any case, NA tribes don't generally use a DNA test to determine group membership including the Cherokee Nation.

Sanders-Gabbard 2020 !

@The Voice In the Wilderness no joke, when I first read that Joe Biden's campaign was sending fundraising emails from his dog, I thought for sure it was parody or the Onion. And then I read the email and thought, Jesus Christ, this is real, and it passed several levels of clearance. Someone wrote this idea down on a note pad, emailed their higher-up, people talked about it at a meeting, typed out a draft, hunched over a laptop to edit it, and made a conscious decision to send it. Or, also plausible: this is a Russian hack job.

“I thought a woman could win; he disagreed” and asking that people move on.

The intent here is to plant the thought but avoid inspection of the facts. "let's move on while I leave you with the impression that Bernie is misogynistic. It's not important to me, really, other than that Bernie's a misogynist but don't ask anyone or look too closely."

Warren Claims Bernie Gave Her Smallpox Blanket

As the feud between the two democratic presidential candidates escalates, Senator Elizabeth Warren now claims that Senator Bernie Sanders offered her a smallpox-infected blanket in an effort to push her out of the race.

Warren’s allegation comes a day after she told reporters that Sanders privately told her that a woman could not win the presidency, a charge Sanders denies. Reached by The Mideast Beast, Warren said that Sanders also told her that Americans would never accept a Cherokee as their commander-in-chief.

“I told him, Bernie, I believe that I am the right person to unite the Democratic Party and beat Donald Trump,” Warren recalled. “And he said, ‘White man very smart, must be chief. Red woman only good for hunt and build tepee.’ I was really taken aback.”

Sanders then handed Warren a blanket, telling her, “sleep with this tonight. Problem will solve itself.”

For his part, Sanders denied having such a conversation and said he only gave her the blanket because “women tend to get cold very easily, which is why we probably shouldn’t put one in the White House.”

Think of how easy it would be to cherry-pick sexism from the Talmud and other scriptures unfamiliar to the gentile majority and try to make Bernie "own" it - especially if you think about how/what so many people "learned" about Islam once 9/11 made them seek information about it for the first time ever, or the more recent regurgitation and (to coin a term) bluewashing of 1980s "war on nerds" moral panic.
