After the big Super Tuesday results surprisingly showing Joe Biden with a delegate lead over Bernie Sanders, two of the, at the time, remaining five candidates dropped out: Michael Bloomberg, who dropped out soon after winning American Samoa (and spending the equivalent of 76% of the territory’s GDP in ads) and more recently, Elizabeth Warren, who dropped out the day the previous article came out.
Unsurprisingly, a CNN panel pondered if the reason Warren performed so poorly (as well as the other women who were in the race) is because of blatant sexism, very conveniently leaving out the part that this is entirely a Democrat process and the vast majority of people voting in the Democrat primaries are Democrats.
Don Lemon, the dumbest and most racist man on television, began by saying: “I want to bring it now to the women who are here to talk about that. You have these women, these very strong, very powerful, very smart women in this race. You had Hillary Clinton, who is defeated despite winning the popular vote. You have Elizabeth Warren who didn’t do well, Amy Klobuchar who has dropped out of this race. You had this very diverse Democratic Party and then you have the women, you have all the white guys who have the delegates. What’s going on here?”
The Daily Beast’s Jackie Kucinich said that Klobuchar lost because she was lacking in funds, but then said this for Warren: “If just the fact that this ground game did not turn out votes for her, did not get people to the polls for Elizabeth Warren is really – there’s really a lot of digging as to why that didn’t happen, whether it’s sexism, whether it’s the fact someone did just change their mind. I heard women when I was in Iowa tell me ‘we’re Warren fans,’ we’re worried that people – they liked Warren, they heard her speak. They went to the polls and then they were worried that a woman couldn’t beat Donald Trump.”
If they really were worried that a woman couldn’t beat Trump, doesn’t that speak more about DEMOCRATS’ sexism than anything else? This isn’t about the entire country. In 2016, Hillary lost because she was unlikeable, was a terrible candidate and ultimately lost the electoral vote, with the vast majority of the country voting in favor of Trump over her. Elizabeth Warren was Hillary if she sounded like the most annoying librarian in the world. Elizabeth Warren lied through her teeth and stabbed “her friend” Bernie Sanders in the back with a tomahawk by saying he said things that she had no proof he said. Elizabeth Warren practically stole every policy idea from Bernie, from the GND to Medicare-for-All, with just a few details changed.
But by all means, claim that it was sexism that destroyed Warren, because it falls entirely on the Democrat Party and its socialist base.
Karen Finney, who was also on the panel and was a spokesperson for the Hillary campaign in 2016, said: “When it comes to executive office, our country is still very uncomfortable with women in power, and that’s part of why women have to over credential again and again. So in ‘16, we said, she would be – Hillary Clinton would have been the most qualified, right? You’ve heard – and you also have heard both Klobuchar and Warren and certainly Kamala when she was still talking about their electability and remember that for women what goes into electability is ‘do I think she – I like her?’ We don’t care if we like male candidates or not. Men come into a race with the expectation that they’re qualified. Women have to prove themselves…”
What a load of crap. First, as I have said time and again here, this is not a matter of the entire country, but of the DEMOCRATS being sexist, if that’s the angle you’re going for. It’s not that Americans aren’t comfortable with a female president, because that’s not the case whatsoever. I’d be more than happy to vote for a female conservative Republican to be President of the United States. But funny enough, a female conservative Republican is not someone Leftists would ever want to vote for because she’d be a “traitor” to her gender, as though women belong to the Democrat Party (much like black people and Latinos are supposed to belong to the Democrat Party, a belief very much in line with the Party’s pro-slavery history).
Second, let’s look at all the people that have, at one point or another, been a Democrat candidate this primary cycle. We have Joe Biden, who is still in and in the lead, Bernie Sanders, who is also still in, and Tulsi Gabbard, who is also still in but the Democrats think she’s too “right-wing” despite how utterly laughable that is (and let’s not forget she’s also a woman, and a woman of color, at that, and yet, the sexist and racist Democrats don’t want her).
The people who withdrew after the Iowa caucuses include: Elizabeth Warren, the aforementioned woman who apparently can’t get a fair shake; Michael Bloomberg, the guy practically no one liked; Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete, Tom Steyer, Deval Patrick, Michael Bennet and Andrew Yang. Among these people, one of them is black, another one is Asian, and another one is gay. Surely, with the line of thinking the CNN panel is using, Democrat voters are also racist and homophobic, as well as sexist for Warren and Klobuchar dropping out!
The people who withdrew before Iowa include: John Delaney, Cory Booker, Marianne Williamson, Julian Castro, Steve Bullock and Joe Sestak. We find two men of color, two women and one of those women is a woman of color.
Finally, the people who withdrew before appearing on any primary ballots include: Wayne Messam, Beto O’Rourke, Tim Ryan, Bill de Blasio, Kirsten Gillibrand, Seth Moulton, Jay Inslee, Kamala Harris, John Hickenlooper, Mike Gravel, Eric Swalwell and Richard Ojeda. Out of all these people, only two are people of color and two are women. The rest are all white men (with one pretending he is Latino with his name).
The reason for me bringing this up is that there are PLENTY of men who voters did not want or support and did not think would be a good candidate to run against Trump. Elizabeth Warren made it to the final four and there is still a woman in this race but these people don’t want to cover her whatsoever. The idea that women have to over-credential themselves and sell themselves more than men do is idiotic. And, even if that really were to be the case here, and women do really have to over-credential themselves, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT DEMOCRATS! So if there is unfairness and sexism and bigotry here, it’s THE DEMOCRATS that are showing it, not the country as a whole.
For all of the minority candidates who dropped out, we had story after story asking if people were racist because those candidates failed in their effort to be the Party’s nominee. But each and every time, the question was poised as though it was THE ENTIRE COUNTRY’S FAULT THAT SUCH PEOPLE FAILED IN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY PRIMARIES!
Now, I’m not going to defend the Democrat base whatsoever because they are a bunch of communist loons. However, if the media is going to try and excuse these candidates’ pathetic efforts at being the party’s nominee by saying that it was racism and sexism’s fault, I am not going to let them get away with pinning the blame on the entirety of the country.
Like I pointed out, Tulsi is still in and she checks the “person of color” and “woman” boxes, and yet, they refuse to talk about her and cover her. Now, it’s down to two old white men, the demographic Democrats are supposed to hate, because of no one’s racism and sexism but the Democrats’, if that’s what you want to blame this on.
In any case, Finney then also went on to say that the electorate didn’t like that Warren was too harsh on Bloomberg, and Patty Solis Doyle, chief of staff for Joe Biden when he was Obama’s running mate, said: “I have to say this whole dynamic really upsets me. The fact that we’re even still talking about, ‘well, she can’t go too far, she can’t hit too hard.’ You know, in 2018, more women than ever before in our history ran for public office. More women than ever won public office. Women are going to be pivotal in this election. We started this presidential election with six women running, more than ever before in an election cycle. We’re down to two, and it really upsets me that someone like Elizabeth Warren, who was stellar on the debate stage, had a great organization, smart, tough, had resources, somehow just seemed to – has been like shoved aside and we don’t know why.”
I find that argument rather interesting, as women make up a decent portion of the Democrat Party and are the majority in this country at roughly 51% of the population. If Warren performed so poorly (even in her own state) then that means women were not particularly supportive of her. Maybe a good amount of them were, but considering how many women there are in general, if Bernie and Joe did better than her, wouldn’t one find more fault in the women who didn’t vote for Warren?
Doyle was acting as though Warren was THE candidate for women, and she may have tried to promote herself as that, but that clearly didn’t work and plenty of women didn’t go for her. Does that make those women sexist?
But to reiterate my overall point, I find it hilarious that these fake news people would try and pin this on “systemic sexism and racism” in the country when it is THE DEMOCRATS’ primaries that displayed people not voting for minorities or women. If these people really want to talk about voters being racist or sexist or whatever, they have to talk about the fact that these are DEMOCRAT voters, not all Americans.
Obviously, they aren’t going to do that. They never believe Democrats can be racist or sexist, even though that’s where we tend to find such bigotry. But even when they try and pin this on voters in general, avoiding talking about Democrats, they can’t help but invite people like me to call out their b.s. If “systemic racism and sexism” are what brought down the minority and female candidates, it’s all to be found exclusively on the Democrat side of things.
