On Monday, Elizabeth Warren delivered what some are considering a cornerstone speech of her campaign for the Democratic nomination.
Speaking to 20,000 in New York City’s Washington Square Park, Warren spoke about of corporate greed and government corruption, a message to rally behind as she continues to rise in the polls.
She also took a moment, as a woman, to shout out women, saying “We are not here because of men at all.”
It was a nice line, nodding to the importance and accomplishments of women given that, you know, she is a woman.
And three days later, far-right men have found the clip and are upset.
Their argument? Men exist, why didn’t Warren say men exist, won’t someone please say men exist???

Would you love a fact-check of Warren’s quips from all the guys of the far-right?
Like that men do sex to make babies and you can’t make babies without men.
Or the fact that men, like women, vote.
Does she know she is not running for President of the HOA? https://t.co/8uLebDYsud— alexandriabrown (@alexthechick) September 19, 2019
If you want to alienate half the voters this is how you do it. https://t.co/mNIfRNXohm— Brandon Gooding (@begooding42) September 19, 2019
If i’m not mistaken, in order to have a child, a MAN and a women need to be involved. Soooo, were all here because of both men and women. Why even bother saying stuff like that? https://t.co/9cJ2Q6ZFhV— Tony Montana (@ASirPillow21) September 19, 2019
Or that it’s mean to hate men.
What an innovative strategy – hate men.@hughhewitt https://t.co/RdE520nqV5— Kurt Schlichter (@KurtSchlichter) September 19, 2019
Did you know that Manhattan, the island, was bought by a man?
The arch in Washington Square Park in NYC she spoke under was built by a man named Stanford White and features a statue of George Washington carved into it. https://t.co/z5ym3mxk8G— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) September 19, 2019
Also a man named Peter Minuit purchased Manhattan island but that one probably hits a bit too close to home for her.— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) September 19, 2019
It really does take a man to handle a light ribbing like this with such impressive tantrums.
