Wow, lot of Bernie Defenders in here trying to stand up for a known liar and backpedaler. The esteemed Gardener of Human Happiness has flip-flopped on numerous issues yet when Warren -- who is even trashier and more duplicitous -- goes against him the sheep rally around Bernie. Predictable. This is how the elites get you to vote for bad "lesser of two evils" candidates. Can't wait for Obama's Unity Fund to go full tilt within the next few months.

man who could honestly give a shit about this whole Warren vs Bernie feud. feels like the spawn of some unholy Social Media staffer and a CNN intern.

honestly whether or not one of these people said something that is being reported a dozen different ways a year later is the most utterly inconsequential bullshit imaginable.

this has nothing to do with politics or policy. this is everything to do with identity politics. framing people as sexist or bigot. it's clear the media wants a repeat of 2016 with all their same bullshit.

that's what's wrong with politics, all the horse race rubberneckers. they need a story every fucking day, and it better not be policy related. it better be some dumb ass throwing shade bullshit so they can own other people on the internet. ultimately, the US population is less informed, and the discourse is fucked. congrats, media. you did it again.

ironic thing is PEOPLE SAY THIS EVERY DAY. for the past 3 years i have seen "A woman can't get elected by US, they are too sexist" from everybody in the world. millions of woke ass people parrot this line as if it's gospel, talking about how dumb and backwards Americans are, virtue signalling that THEY know how bigoted America really is. suddenly now having concerns about elector-ability, having those exact concerns is some unforgivable sin? LOL give me a fucking break.

Real politicians do seem to be able to be sunk by things like this. The context/nuance behind it doesn't really matter if everyone just keeps parroting the sentence over and over again.

It's like how Romney is only remembered for saying "binders full of women" but no one actually knows what he was talking about. You have never heard Howard Dean's name because he got excited and yelled YEEEAAH. Trump is a crazy anomaly who can have a soundbite out where he says he grabs women by the pussy right before an election and still win :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I don't care for either Sanders or Warren, but I find it reassuring that this whole bringing of gender into the picture now seems to be a net loss for whoever does it. I guess it might be too early to tell, but people seem to be getting more resistant to this BS.

Bernie Supporters have rivaled Kim Jong-UN for cult of personality.

He is a bigger liar and backtracker then Crazy Pete and that's saying something. He has flip flopped on so many positions, dealt with people he said he never dealt with, lied about his previous statements on a subject for political expediency, and dropped "millionaire" from his "millionaire and billionaire" attack speeches.

The guy was talking about a revolutiona nd then after he got a paycheck from the DNC and/or Hillary got a yacht or a house or something than immediately flipped and backed Hillarys nomination shortly after.

How many times can he walk over his base before they realize this guy is insano?

I’m no Bernie stan but I will 100% defend him over the lying snake that is Elizabeth Warren all day every day.

Warren has done basically everything you’ve listed selling out to the establishment but much worse. She endorsed Hillary over Bernie in 2016, then went back to being buddy buddy with him and then just stabbed him in the back again!!!

She’s lied about her heritage even copying her “family recipes” for her Native American cookbook directly WORD FOR WORD out of the New York Times. She lied about her grandparents having to elope because of her heritage obviously since she’s not native AmericanShe’s lied about her kids going to private school, she’s lied about using super pacs, she’s lied about using “wine glass” fundraisers.

She’s changed her origin story about her being fired for being “pregnant” so many times the Joker would be jealous. She claimed her dad was a janitor even though her brother has said that is not true.

Warren is a lying liar that lies.

That is an awful lot of republican talking points you have there mate.

Up until just a few days ago, anyone that said any of these things you listed would just have been brushed off as republican-talking-points and Trump supporter scum. You would instantly have been insta-banned on Reee.

And now, this is suddenly completely upside down. It is ok to say these things and people that defend Warren are suddenly establishment scum, basically trump supporter.

Funny how things can change so quickly.

It's important to examine why they change their tune so quickly without any introspection and who is prompting the switch in attitude.

It's almost as if the ideologues have puppet strings above their heads instead of a complete, self-explanatory paradigm that allows them to think for themselves and come to their own conclusions.

“Republican talking points” isn’t a real thing. There are facts and there are lies. Those were facts.

Ok, so we all agree then? Era is retarded?

I still wouldn’t post that all shit over there even now...half of the people are still acting like 6 year olds and saying “Nuh uh, Warren wouldn’t have leaked this story or lied about it...u don’t have any proof.”

Meanwhile, everyone living in the real world can see that there is a 0.00% chance this was leaked by anyone except someone approved by Warren.

Mate, we have agreed on that for quite some time.

We even have a dedicated thread for all of their antics.
