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.
Actually every one of you have a father. And I bet men built that stage, as well as that monument behind you. I bet men are running the audio from that microphone and a man is most likely standing behind that camera. Men most likely were the Uber drivers that got you there.— Keston Novak 🇺🇸 (@kestonnovak) September 19, 2019
Hey Liz, I hate to mansplain given the context, but I just wanted to point out that it does indeed take 2 to tango 🤷♂️🤷♀️— Frost Fangs (@frostfangs2) September 18, 2019
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.
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.
