I don’t think so, but I’m actually more interested in how inane and insane her political recommendations are. And unfortunately there is a substantial number of Americans who think she and her crazy ideas are quite all right.
Warren’s Predictit value was above 50 cents a few months back and now it’s down to 30-31 cents. She’s still leads Biden (20-22 cents) and Buttigieg (15-16 cents), but her trend is down, and there are several good reasons why her star is falling. The one for today is her endorsement of power to groups whose outlook on American life and politics is shaped by strongly-held notions of their oppression, their victim-hood, and their exploitation by pervasive white supremacists. They want power, they want to get rid of whites having power, and they want the wealth of whites. Warren supports them in their quests, explicitly. Warren, like her endorsers, is seeing politics in strictly racial terms.
Warren’s latest absurdity is to say “Thank you, @BlackWomxnFor! Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy and I don’t take this endorsement lightly. I’m committed to fighting alongside you for the big, structural change our country needs.”
Warren not only accepted the endorsement of the group named Black Womxn For, she made commitments that can be viewed in full here.
She promises political power to “…black women, working people of color, disabled people, indigenous people, diverse community leaders, and experts in the driver’s seat of her promised structural reforms.” “People most impacted by systems of oppression know the solutions and should be central to crafting policy change.”
She will apply a “race and gender equity impact analysis when hiring for her transition team and administration and appointing more Black women, especially trans and immigrant women, Black men, indigenous people, people of color and disabled people.”
And there is more language that favors reparations and “…rooting out the culture of white supremacy, exploitation and misogyny in all areas of our society…”
Warren continues to favor positions that will make her a ready target if Democrats nominate her. In a Trump-Warren matchup on Predictit, she loses by a large margin.
Warren’s positions favor a totalitarian government run by people whose aim is to hire themselves in sinecures that are paid for by white people. In their minds, this will replace and rectify the existing system in which white people in all walks of life, inside government and out, mainly white men, make a lot of money by doing very little work but by exploiting black women, black men, other people of color, indigenous people’s descendants, disabled people, and people of various self-proclaimed genders.
The problem is bigger than Warren. Democrats generally agree with her. They simply do not want to bring this about all at once. Hillary Clinton, asked about Medicare for All, said it would not pass and it’s impractical. She also said, “But the goal is the right goal.”
Clinton would implement full and complete government control over a longer time, but she’d still implement it.
Democrats are communists deep down who always favor socialization of private property if they can get it. They always favor government control. If a Republican comes along who is libertarian, his voice is drowned out by the mish-mash of completely fake conservatism that passes for Republican political philosophy.
