Joe Biden, the former vice president, accused Elizabeth Warren of pushing an “angry unyielding viewpoint.”
Sen. Elizabeth Warren implies sexism. In an email sent last Friday, Warren’s campaign fundraised off of Biden’s angry comment, making it clear she believed they were sexist in nature and an attack on her as a woman:
“I am angry and I own it,” read the subject line of a Friday fundraising email from Warren’s campaign.
“Over and over, we are told that women are not allowed to be angry. It makes us unattractive to powerful men who want us to be quiet,” the email read.
Warren’s email referred to backlash toward Biden and another 2020 Democratic candidate, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, both of whom her supporters say launched attacks on her that were sexist, CNN reported.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took a page out of her presidential predecessor, Hillary Clinton over the weekend, accusing critics who say she’s “condescending” and “divisive’ and that her “Medicare for All” plan is poorly thought-out, of being sexist.
Both former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg — two of Warren’s rivals for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — accused Warren of being hard to relate to in public forums last week.
Biden accused Warren of having an “angry unyielding viewpoint,” and of being “representative of an elitism that working and middle class people do not share: ‘We know best; you know nothing,’” after Warren criticized him for not embracing her unworkable, expensive “Medicare for All” health plan.
Buttigieg echoed Biden’s assessment of Warren on ABC’s “This Week,” adding that Warren has a “my way or the highway” approach to improving Americans’ access to health care that lacked “humility.”
Warren’s supporters were the first to call the attacks “sexist,” telling the Boston Globe that Warren’s male rivals just can’t handle a woman with strong ideas.
“I think that’s just very sexist,” Peggy Mormann, a Warren supporter, told Warren’s home paper. “They realize she’s a huge threat to them. More
Not to take Joe Biden’s side but I think we do ourselves a disservice when we let people like Elizabeth Warren twist what people say to mean something else entirely without calling them out on it. Biden did not call Warren ‘angry’ what he said was:
But at another level these kinds of attacks are a serious problem. They reflect an angry unyielding viewpoint that has crept into our politics.
If she took that personally then she must feel there is some truth in it for her. But do you know what is really sexist? Hiding behind your sex to avoid any sort of criticism.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
