In the past few weeks, there has been compelling evidence gathered, that indicates, Senator Elizabeth Warren completely fabricated her claim that in 1971, she was dismissed from her special education teaching job once she became pregnant. One might ask, isn’t it somewhat brazen to create a politically advantageous myth about one’s past, if there is the risk that the truth will come out? The answer to that question for Warren, is no. She is the media’s preferrred candidate, as was Hillary in the 2016 election and journalists will form a Praetorian Guard around her and march in lockstep to parry any Republican attacks on her character, in exactly the same manner as they covered for Hillary.
Warren understands, which explains her ability to engage in mythologizing, with impunity. As galling as it may be, Warren knows the media will always have her back and will bury any story that might harm her candidacy. Warren already gave us a hint of her Plan B, should her fabrications become problematic. She’ll simply change the subject, in the same manner she did with her bogus Cherokee claim and simply say, all women who were in the workforce at the time can relate to what I’m saying,
Here is Warren, speaking last week, doubling down on her story,
“When I was 22 and finishing my first year of teaching, I had an experience millions of women will recognize. By June I was visibly pregnant — and the principal told me the job I’d already been promised for the next year would go to someone else.”
Warren further Tweeted: “This was 1971, years before Congress outlawed pregnancy discrimination — but we know it still happens in subtle and not-so-subtle ways.”
The truth of the story matters not one whit to her progressive identity politics followers. As is becoming abundantly clear with each passing day, for progressives, the truth is irrelevant on the larger question of #MeToo, past discrimination against women in the workplace, rampant misogyny, etc., etc. — all a Warren supporter needs to do to make the tall tale disappear is to pull down take a pick from a bountiful menu of progressive gender-specific grievances and argue that Warren’s claim, false though it may be, is subsumed under a Larger Truth.
This was the central theme of the farcical Kavanaugh hearings: Democratic Senators didn’t bother to challenge the credibility or truth of matters asserted by Christine Blasey-Ford, but rather they spoke in terms of “her Truth,” as if a proposition can be true and false simultaneously. This sounds absurd, but it is part and parcel of the post-modernist claptrap adopted by the Democratic Party as their new official political philosophy.
