Elizabeth Warren Dropped Out Because You People Are Fucking Weirdos

You people are weirdos. Elizabeth Warren entered the 2020 election cycle as the front runner to represent the Democratic party and after months of absolute bullshit, she has somehow ended her campaign before Tulsi Gabbard.

What in the fuck happened?

The easy answer is sexism.

Elizabeth was the most articulate candidate with the most detailed plans and the most qualifications to be the next president but her entire identity was dissected in the most meaningless careless ways.

Let’s start with the fake that she used to tell people she was Native American and took a DNA test that showed us she was white as hell. Who cares?

Our parents tell us a bunch of nonsense growing up. It would not surprise me if little Liz was told she was Native American and as a nerdy white girl growing up in the middle of nowhere, that fun fact separated her from her peers and she thought it was special enough to continue believing that despite getting older and realizing how stupid it sounds.

Or she was just lying to get into a better college and kept that lie going. Does either reality affect her ability to govern? Every politician lies. Donald Trump has literally never once told the truth. I don’t give a shit about homegirl’s heritage.

Because of her appearance and her deliberate way of speaking, lazy assholes kept repeating the idea that she reminded them of old school teachers. I probably made that super original observation too.

When has a man ever spoken the way Liz does and been told they remind us of an old teacher?

A man talks like Elizabeth and we all rave about how smart he is. Pete Buttigieg was doing an Elizabeth Holmes fake voice to make himself sound more intelligent and his supporters thought he ‘seemed presidential’ even though he was just doing Barack Obama blackvoice while probably working for the CIA and having no fucking business being on the debate stage with those far more accomplished nominees.

I will never forget the New York Times editorial board saying that Elizabeth sounded too ‘condescending’ after interviewing her. Liz was the smartest woman in the room and they weren’t used to be spoken to like ‘regular’ people.

OF COURSE she comes off condescending.  She’s accomplished more than most people she comes in contact with. She’s far more informed than the people she has to explain herself to and she’s confident in what she’s saying.

Buuuut, she’s a woman so she comes off “shrill, apparently.

And I do not want to hear about her being a lifelong Republican because if we’re going to have this conversation then let’s have this conversation: if Elizabeth Warren was truly a Republican then she’d be standing where Joe Biden is right now and Biden would be picking out his own coffin with a family member he doesn’t recognize anymore.

These ‘centrists’ candidates that everyone believes are so ‘electable’ are just Republicans-Lite. Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden just want to maintain the status quo. We are currently operating in a conservative regime and outside of Bernie Sanders, none of these Democratic candidates wanted to change a fucking thing.

No one has any progressive ideas.

These candidates don’t give a shit about your health insurance or your child care or your education costs. They want power. They want you to remain in debt and in poor health so they can swoop in and raise the unemployment rate by 0.5% and call it a victory as they all swap seats in billionaire’s wine caves or pedophiles private jets while we struggle.

Do I believe that Elizabeth Warren was this wholesome selfless savior that was going to break the wheel? Of course not. No one person was going to shift power back into our hands. That doesn’t behoove the people in power. Duh.

But at least she pretended to want to give us health care and free education and she had actual plans to go after the 1% in order to get it done.

Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar and Ratfuck Pete all ganged up on her the day before Super Tuesday and decided to screw her out of the race. But I will admit, by that point it was already too late.

If Liz and Bernie were tied for delegates heading into Tuesday and Bernie Bros were demanding that Liz drop out, I’d be fighting in the streets for her. Why does she have to drop out and Bernie gets to remain?

But Warren wasn’t even close at any point and the only explanation is that you can’t have a vagina and threaten wealthy men’s influence.

Again, I have no idea if Liz is a liar about wanting to change things and I’m kind of rushing to write this just in case she comes out and endorses Joe Biden and she makes a fool out of me.

But all I can go by is the words she’s said and the platforms she was campaigning on. If the internet loves Bernie so much then it makes no sense that Bernie and Liz weren’t the final two candidates standing considering they were the only two trying to shake up the status quo.

And real quick, as far as the feminist who projected all of their trauma onto Liz, you’re weirdos too.

It is equally foolish to pin your struggles as a woman on her as if it to diminish her by saying she reminds you of your middle school English teacher.

Elizabeth Warren was not the Manic Pixie Dream Candidate. She was not the one female character you get to pick at the beginning of an RPG. There are far bigger issues than wanting to see a president that looks like you. This isn’t a fucking Disney movie where they make sure everyone is represented on the big screen.

This is more than Nancy Pelosi’s bullshit performative political charades where she rips up the State of the Union speech of the president while she simultaneously allows him to do whatever the fuck he wants with no obstruction from her at all besides the occasional eye roll when the cameras are on.

If you’re not going to take this seriously then please exit the chat.

Both sexism and feminism stripped Elizabeth Warren of her actual plans and ideas and turned her into this background character that exists exclusively to project our hate or love of women while we vote for the other ‘real’ candidates.

Just go vote for Bernie Sanders so I can finally see a doctor, you fucking weirdos.
