Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 05, 2020

Paul Krugman is very upset about Elizabeth Warren dropping out of the DNC Primary, and intimates that anyone who didn't vote for her is a sexist.

That and her botched pivot to Medicare for all, Bernistas and "grievance progressivism".

Fantastic that Krugman says Warren had "enormous...personal charm". Most Democrats I know thought she had a much charm as a Honey Badger.

Since Never Correct Krugman is bemoaning sexism as the reason for Warren dropping out, he is going to stampede to the last woman standing, Tulsi Gabbard...amirite???

Look at Mohr trying to excuse bernie bros behavior.

They have made death threats against women.

Big surprise that doesn't bother you.

Its also interesting to me that none of the Wokesters are claiming that Amy Klobuchar's dropping out of the race was sexism...why is that?

#9 | Posted by Rightocenter at 2020-03-05 06:44 PM | Reply

Amy Klobuchar's dropping out of the race was

Because of a deal she cut with the DNC.

She drops out, they look after her in the future. (Provided Biden wins)

Fair enough, how about Kamala Harris...was that sexism?

#11 | Posted by Rightocenter at 2020-03-05 06:48 PM | Reply

Kamala Harris...

You mean the perspective VP?

I mean, there was the graveyard in her closet that was briefly exposed to the public. But, she shut that door and ran for the hills as fast as she could.

But sure, definitely sexism... and racism... don't forget, she's a twofer.

Okay, your turn, what about Tulsi Gabbard and Kirsten Gillibrand? (Kirsten Gillibrand is a #metoo activist, she should have been yelling sexism based on the fact there were men on the stage with her.)

Pro Tip: Tulsi is still in the race, see my #6.

As for Gillibrand, good question...I'm sure that Never Correct Krugman is going to tweet about her soon. /s

Tulsi was unofficially kicked out by the DNC for her comments about Harris and Clinton.

What of Marianne Williamson?

Honestly, I don't think sexism kicked Warren out of the race. She was trying for the progressive faction of the Democratic Party, but Sanders had already sucked all the oxygen out of that room. She lost because Sanders had a superior organization and much greater name recognition from 4 years ago. Gender had nothing to do with it imo.

That may be the perception, but Tulsi is still "in" the Democratic Primary Race and has the delegate to prove it.

As for Marianne, crazyism is what caused her to drop out.

I guess the old adage is true. When you got nothing, lie.

No, it doesn't.

Young Women Actually Make Up More of Bernie's Base Than Men Do

New findings from The Economist show that women under 45 make up a larger share of Bernie Sanders' base than do men in their same age group, contradicting a popular narrative that says the 2020 Democratic candidate's supporters are overwhelmingly white and male, to the virtual exclusion of other groups.

The Bernie Bro is dead " but people are still trying to resurrect him

Women make up 53 per cent of Sanders supporters,

Why do you got to lie about Bernie's supporters? Do you not value the opinion of women? Because, you're literally ignoring all of them in order to slander Bernie.

Why do you hate women so much, Tor?

Not to mention several high profile snafus that made her look like an amateur.

NPR was pushing this sexism angle this morning on 1A. I had to shut it off.

That's not a gut punch, champ.

Her endorsement does nothing to change the fact that there's a faction of his supporters that or horrible people.

First of all. A fraction of all people are horrible. That's life. Unless Bernie is actively calling out for them to behave the way they did. Like Trump did with his supporters. I'm not sure why anyone believes Bernie, or Bernie supporters, need to be responsible for the behavior of horrible people.

Secondly. The punch to the gut was him saying Bernie supporters "hate vagina monologues". Only to have the playwright of the vagina monologues endorsing Bernie.

I could further explain if you need more clarification.

I feel like sexism is generally a factor in presidential politics whether people care to admit it or not.

When female candidates get aggressive they are generally seen as "abrasive" or "bitchy" when male candidates exhibiting similar behavior are seen as "strong" or "powerful."

I don't think this is even limited to politics, it happens all over corporate America. Women are handicapped by expectations that they shut up or be viewed negatively.

All of that said, it's hard to justify that being the sole reason Warren flamed out. She had a lot of other things working against her.

IMHO Warren dropped out because she's dishonest and did a lot of damage to her reputation early on.... Who the F K does she think she is, Trump?

#34 | Posted by lfthndthrds at 2020-03-06 07:43 PM | Reply

Warren dropped out because she's a ------ candidate and fortunately she was smart enough to recognize that fact. That she and her supporters are playing the victim card is par for the course because the left adores false victimhood.
