Elizabeth Warren Endorses “Gay Reparations”

Warren supports paying a generous tax refund to gay couples.

Published

Elizabeth Warren supports extending a form of reparations to yet another demographic viewed as supposed victims by much of the Democratic Party.

The Massachusetts Democrat and Presidential candidate has proposed paying back tax refunds to gay couples who filed taxes as single individuals before the government recognized gay marriages. Before the 2015 Obergfell v. Hodges judicial activist Supreme Court ruling, ‘married’ individuals in same-sex partnerships filed taxes as single people.

Warren claims that the government owes more than $50 million to gay couples who weren’t recognized as married, even though tax regulations had always recognized them as single. She’s proposed a “Refund Equality Act” that would allow gay couples to claim reverse back taxes from the IRS to make up for it.

The Massachusetts Senator had brought up legislation that would guarantee payments to gay couples in 2017 that wasn’t advanced. As President she would have greater latitude to pursue the idea.

Warren’s also endorsed reparations for descendants of slaves in the United States, an idea that seems to be catching on with force throughout the entire Democratic party.

Warren seems to be gaining an amount of traction in the crowded Democratic primary, siphoning support from democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. She’s been advertised as a Democrat with an ability to appeal to both to the left-wing and centrist neoliberal elements of the party that increasingly find themselves at odds over policy priorities.

In between reparations for descendants of slaves, reparations for gay couples, and the incredibly expensive “Green New Deal” that Warren has supported, it would seem that there will be little to no wealth remaining for the broader American people under her administration.

Elizabeth Warren SLAMS Bernie’s Bros: “A Foundation of Hate”

Warren’s alliance with the democratic socialist is shattered.

Elizabeth Warren Baits and Switches College Students

Elizabeth Warren spoke in condemning terms about some of Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ supporters when speaking to NBC News on Tuesday, calling out some Sanders supporters for operating with a “foundation of hate.”

Sanders’ competitors and liberal mainstream media outlets have increasingly tried to tar his supporters in an effort to blunt the candidacy of the democratic socialist, as he appears well-positioned to take the nomination.

Warren’s previously warm relationship with the Vermont democratic socialist turned sour last month, when the Massachusetts Senator claimed Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be President. Sanders denied the accusation, and Warren went on to accuse him of calling her a liar on a live debate stage.

Warren accused Sanders supporters of organizing a harassment campaign against members of a Nevada culinary union that declined to support him.

I am particularly worried about what happened in the attacks on members of the culinary union, particularly on the women in leadership. That is not how we build an inclusive Democratic Party. … We do not build on a foundation of hate.

Warren’s line of attack is quite similar to neoliberal Democrats running implicit ‘Never Bernie’ campaigns. Authoritarian oligarch Michael Bloomberg has released ads claiming that Sanders’ movement represents a toxic mob.

Warren claims Sanders supporters are “publishing their personal addresses, their phone numbers, and then making very aggressive threats against their own safety and the safety of their families.

Joe Biden also condemned what he interprets as online hate from Sanders supporters, telling mainstream media flack Chuck Todd that the Vermont Senator bears “accountability.” Sanders himself seems skeptical of the narrative, asking who his supposedly malicious supporters are when pressed on the issue.

Heated rhetoric from online leftists now seems to be a front and center issue within the Democratic primary. It’s a bit less clear if the supposed online mobs are really harassing people, or if Sanders’ critics want a free pass from criticism.
