Sen. Elizabeth Warren reversed her position on rejecting super PAC support as she seeks a comeback in the Democratic presidential primary. Warren, who has previously said that she would disavow the support of a super PAC that sought to aid her bid for the presidency, told reporters that she had changed her mind after failing to get her rivals to join her in repudiating the outside spending groups.
The reversal is a dramatic change of heart for the Massachusetts progressive. Warren boasted during the Democratic debate earlier this month that only she and Sen. Amy Klobuchar lacked super PAC backers. “So look, the first day I got in this race over a year ago, I said I hope every presidential candidate who comes in will agree – no super PACs for any of us. I renewed that call dozens of times,” Warren said. “And I couldn’t get a single Democrat to go along with it.”
Via histrionic press release from Family Research Council hate group leader Tony “Princess Tiny Meat” Perkins:
“It’s going to take some clever strategists to get liberals out of the box they’ve put themselves in for 2020. In a field of Green Deal-infanticide-open borders-socialists, Joe Biden actually seemed like a semi-moderate choice for voters. That all fell apart last Friday, when he apologized for throwing a lukewarm compliment Mike Pence’s way. Now, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is piling on, proving that she may have less civility in her blood than Native American ancestors.
When she was asked what she thought about Biden’s reversal, Warren said, “I’m sorry. I followed Pence’s history on LGBTQ Americans, and I don’t think that is a decent position. I disagree.” When it came time to distinguish between the position and the man, Warren couldn’t. What about Pence as a person? Does she believe he’s “decent,” reporters pressed? “No,” Warren replied.
Every voter needs to follow this thinking to its logical conclusion — and not just on marriage or sexuality, but on abortion too. Democrats like Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren aren’t just taking an opposing view. They’re degrading the actual people who disagree with their positions. That’s exactly how repressive and tyrannical regimes start. They dehumanize their enemies so they can push them aside, persecute them, and ultimately eliminate them.”
In a nutshell. Tony Perkins who has spent his life dehumanizing people complains about dehumanizers being dehumanized.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren jumped into the 2020 presidential campaign Monday, offering a message of economic populism as she became the best-known Democratic candidate yet to enter what is expected to be a crowded race.
Warren’s announcement that she was establishing an exploratory committee — the legal precursor to a run — came as other candidates, including several of her fellow senators, made final preparations for their own announcements, some of which are expected in days.
“America’s middle class is under attack,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in a four-minute, 30-second video emailed to supporters Monday. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.”
Led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and a group of 87 members of Congress sent a letter has sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’ demanding that they lift the ban on blood donors who are “men who have had sex with other men , at any time since 1977,” a policy the FDA has had in place since the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis in 1992.
“Since the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic more than 30 years ago, the scientific community’s understanding of the virus has changed dramatically. We have seen vast advances in blood screening technology, blood donation policy changes in other countries allowing MSM to donate, and opposition from our nation’s blood banks who have called the current ban ‘medically and scientifically unwarranted. Our current policies turn away healthy, willing donors even when we face serious blood shortages. Further, the existing lifetime ban continues to perpetuate inaccurate stereotypes about gay and bisexual men, and fosters an atmosphere that promotes discrimination and discourages individuals from from seeking HIV testing and treatment services.”
Other signatories included Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA), Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) and Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI), all openly gay or lesbian members of Congress.
In a statement on her website, Warren writes, “For me, this has been a basic issue of fairness and of science – blood donation policies should be grounded in science, not ugly and inaccurate stereotypes. When a Massachusetts man told me he wanted to donate blood during the bombings but couldn’t because of his sexual orientation, I dug deeper into this discriminatory ban and I didn’t like what I found. Current policies are contrary to science.”
The American Medical Association, has also joined the chorus of those who oppose the FDA’s ban on gay and bisexual blood donors.
After Scott (Cosmo) Brown amped up rhetoric accusing Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren of using her Native American heritage to her professional advantage a video shocking video surfaced showing Brown staffers making racist Native American ‘war whoops’ and tomahawk chops in a face-off with Warren supporters, mocking Warren’s Cherokee heritage.
Here you can see Brown’s staffers making “war whoops” and “tomahawk chops”, presumably in reference to Warren’s Cherokee heritage. In the video identifies as making the air chop is none other than Brown’s Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard (camouflage shirt) and Massachusetts GOP operative Brad Garrett, (tan baseball cap and gray hoodie), leading the war whoops.
When confronted with this “It is certainly something that I don’t condone,” said Brown. But it certainly wasn’t something that he condemned either using the moment to attack Elizabeth Warren’s racial heritage once again. “The real offense is that (Warren) said she was white and then checked the box saying she is Native American, and then she changed her profile in the law directory once she made her tenure.”
Well Elizabeth Warren responds new ad political ad to about Brown’s racist attacks and her Native American background:
“As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage. What kid would? But I knew my father’s family didn’t like that she was part Cherokee and part Delaware — so my parents had to elope. Let me be clear, I never asked for, never got any benefit, because of my heritage. The people who hired me have all said they didn’t even know about it. I’m Elizabeth Warren, I approve this message. Scott Brown can continue attacking my family — but I”m gonna keep fighting for yours.”
The US is 40 years behind western Europe in terms of racial issues. How can it be allowed for a politician to criticize someone based on their ethnicity? Do that in Europe and you lose your career.
This is just just another checkmark on a long list that proves that Scott Brown is not qualified enough or intellegent enough to hold public office
Massachusetts State Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren spoke out loudly and clearly for FULL EQUALITY (Which is refreshing for a Democrat)in a post at Blue Mass Group:
As other states grapple with whether to support marriage equality, I’m ready to move to the next step: End the two-tiered system created by the Defense of Marriage Act. Our federal government should not be in the business of selecting which married couples it supports and which it treats with contempt. States define marriage among couples, and, once married, all those couples and their families should have the same protections, the same benefits, and the same tax treatments. Fairness and equality are foundational values in our country, and nowhere is that more important than in our families.
In the workplace, people should be hired for what they can do and evaluated on their performance – period. I strongly support the fully inclusive Employee Non-Discrimination Act. Particularly in these uncertain times, people must have confidence that they will be judged on the merits. Again, this speaks to the fairness and equality that mark us as a people.
Finally, Massachusetts has been a leader in combating the rise of bullying. After college, I taught elementary school and saw first hand how important it is for kids to learn in a safe and welcoming environment. We need to help teachers and administrators create and foster an environment that welcomes students and their families, whether kids are being raised in a single parent household, by their grandparents, or by their lesbian moms or gay dads.
They’re rude, crude, and socially unacceptably and thankfully there seems to be a lot less of them now. (Thank God!)
Case in point. One lone demented “teatard” who tried to disrupt a townhall meeting in Brocton, MA with Elizabeth Warren talking about Occupy Wall Street and Elizabeth being the “mastermind behind it” and that she was a “socialist whore”
