Elizabeth Warren participates in LGBT parade, and is rewarded with accusations and ugly comments from butt hurt Bernie Bros.

Courtesy of Facebook: 

Happy Boston Pride! I'm so proud to be from Massachusetts, a state that leads the country on equality.

How great is it that we have a future VP who is willing to demonstrate her support for the LGBT community?

Yeah well if you are a Bernie Sanders supporter nothing she does will ever satisfy you again.

Here is just a sampling of the comments for this post on her Facebook page:  

Rocky Paulk You can't even begin to imagine how disappointed I am to find that you were selling out Bernie. 

Brian Allan Thanks for you and Democratic party for breaking election laws and screwing over Bernie 

Juan L. Tejeda She has betrayed the liberals in this country by supporting HRC. SHE knows very well who HRC IS... corrupted. 

Claudia Stauber Too bad she was all talk and no action, her actions speak louder than her words! Traitor! 

Kevan Thompson So disappointed in you. All your passion is just a big act. SELLOUT. #OfThePeople #NotMeUs #StillSanders #ReleaseTheTranscripts #arizonaelectionfraud #DropOutHillary #WheresObama #DonaldDucksDebate #LameStreamMedia #BernieOrBust #SeeYouInPhilly #NeverHillary 

Kerri Long Couldn't resist the sellout, could ya? The money must be insanely worth it. I hope you're resting well at night in your cool home. Remember all the homes foreclosed on that you benefited from? I over looked that about you, I mean no one's perfect. But to endorse Clinton with primaries to go and votes to count, shows you're no different. What a shame. Congrats, YOUR state has equality, why don't we stretch that out to the entire country? Oh that's right, we can't, our entire gov't is ran by the Oligarchy. It's a shame we can't ALL have nice things.

To be fair there are a lot of positive comments as well, but they are almost drowned out by the anger and frustration vomited forth by the Bernie Sanders supporters.

On Reddit there are even plans being made to protest a speaking engagement that Warren has today: 

Elizabeth Warren will be giving an income inequality speech at the WWII club in Northampton, Ma on Sunday. Doors open at 4. Some of us will be meeting at the park by the Academy of Music downtown around 3:00 to go over details. If you would like to meet directly at the club, please arrive no later than 3:30. Times are subject to change as space is limited and the event may fill up. Please wear all black to represent the grief we feel as we mourn the loss of the person we thought she was. This will be a silent visual Demonstration in reaction to her recent endorsment of Hillary Clinton and to let her know how we feel about it. We feel as if she has turned her back on us and has not acted in alignment with her own message. Please bring Bernie signs. We will stand with our backs facing her holding our Bernie signs for her to read. Please no shouting or interruptions. Sometimes silence speaks louder than words and can send a powerful message. Eye candy for ear candy.

Apparently this was originally posted on Bernie Sanders' official site but somebody had the sense to delete it.

Sanders knows he can't officially endorse this kind of thing, just secretly smile in approval that it's happening.

To be clear Elizabeth Warren was the darling of the Bernie Sanders supporters for quite some time.

Then when she failed to endorse him earlier in the primaries the attacks started coming, sporadically at first.

But then she committed the cardinal sin of endorsing Hillary Clinton, and THAT....well that led to all of this.

By the way as it turns out the unrestrained aggression of the Bernie Sanders supporters might have been why they were caught by surprise at the large turnout of Hillary voters in California:
Just because you bully women into staying silent, does not mean they will not make their voices heard in the voting booth.

So the question remains, will these angry, disappointed zealots be able to get their shit together by November and support the Clinton/Warren ticket, or will they take their ball and go home despite the fact that they will be playing right into the hands of Donald Trump?

I guess only time will tell.


  1. Gryphen, just a thought: SOME (emphasis mine) of these comments could be coming from Trump and/or republican supporters.

      He knows that. So, much for a "search for truth".

    2. 66gardeners7:01 AM

      What difference does it make. We are turned off by them. Who cares if they won't vote for Hillary. The Democratic party should never embrace bullies and the uneducated.

      Explain why Bernie had this on his website if you believe he does not condone this bad behavior.

  2. Anonymous2:38 PM

    Who are these Bernie Bros.? How did they acquire so much real estate in the mind of the Democrats. I would have never known they were this powerful.

    I know many supporters of Sanders. They are fine people. Some I have known for years.

    Who exactly are the Bernie Bros and why are they still so hated and vilified?

    Your poor, poor daughter must be facing quite a dilemma.

    1. You can save your faux concern for somebody else, my daughter has been with Hillary since right after the California primaries.

      She thinks some of these Bernie Sanders supporters are just as fucking stupid as I do.

  4. Anonymous2:49 PM

    And SOME people don't like Hillary and will be damned if they'll be browbeaten into voting for her because it's 'for the good of the Party' no matter if the country goes down the tubes. We may have lost a lot of rights thanks to the Patriot Act, but dammit we can still vote or not vote as we choose.

    I'm sure Ms Warren always knew whom she would support and what the response would be, given that the Bernie Sanders Cult is identical to the Sarah Palin Cult.

    If I'm any guess, Elizabeth Warren eats crispy crunchy angry fratboys for breakfast.

    1. Anonymous6:03 PM

      Big difference -Bernie had a lot more supporters than did the idiot from Alaska! She lost the race for McCain!

      She was a racist and it came out during their campaign against our outstanding President Obama! Thank God we won TWO terms!

    Think Elizabeth looks so cute and young in the parade photos! Love seeing her a participant!

    She's so in the right place. She and Hillary (if they end up being the ticket together) have my vote.

    Hillary Clinton will always have my vote. She'll select the best candidate to run w/her on the ticket!

    Trump will go down - perhaps to Hell? Perfect place for him!

    Even if you don't know anyone who is L, G, T or B it's still polite to accept their choice to be the way they are. Some of them can't help it, it's biological, some of them choose it, but I don't believe it's an easy road for anyone who is not standard hetero.

    I'm not a proponent of all the "personal pronoun" stuff that the millennials are using to be identified with but some people really are just subject to biological differences that the rest of us normal people can't relate to but we should be sensitive to.

    I feel very sorry for them all but some of them actually seem quite content.

    1. "Normal"?
      And no, it's not a choice.

    2. Anonymous7:13 AM

      Nobody cares if you are not a proponent of all the "personal pronoun" stuff. Your comfort with language in not their concern.

      This community of people know they are different, and just like everyone else who is different they want to better understand why. They know they are not all the same, but they do know they are born this way and certainly did not make a choice here.

      The better question to ask would be why do republicans and anybody who is anti-LGBTQ have children who turn out to be LLGBTQ.

    It seems those Bernie Bros should have educated themselves on how the process works. And their senile hero made the choice of joining the Democratic party, no one forced him.

      "Poor berniebros", guess what, we're not voting for your queen. We're actually quite happy and we'll write him in. Not that it matters because your vote doesn't count either. Electoral college decides the election baby and neither you, or I, or anyone else's vote even matters.

      5:16, must we expose your hilarious ignorance of the American political process every night?

      The electoral college votes based on the popular vote in each state (or, in Maine and Nebraska, each district). Your vote definitely counts, and so does mine and everyone else's, so stop whining about a process you don't even understand. You're not being disenfranchised. You're just being outnumbered.

    Go Liz! I think she's wonderful for supporting the LGBT community. Wait for Trump in about, oh three days, to insinuate her sexual preferences for marching in a parade. The boy can't help himself.

      To give Trump some credit here, I don't remember him using sexual identity politics in his campaign.

  15. Anonymous5:17 PM

    Sad to say, I know BernieBros. They used to be Dems, my friends, and supported Obama. Now they hate "Hitlery", Warren & Obama with a white hot passion. They are convinced that the evil cabal fixed the primaries (except the ones Bernie won). They are writing in Bernie or voting for Trump (same thing) to teach "the establishment" a lesson. They no longer speak to anyone who disagrees with them other than to blast their former friends with hate email & calls. It's sad and very disturbing. Bernie could stop this, but he's either unaware or doesn't care. His campaign staff supports this behavior (like posting info on the Warren protest) until called out for it. But it keeps happening.

    1. Anonymous5:38 PM

      By November, they will be few and far between. It's an IQ test, but some need that long to figure it out.

    2. Anonymous5:48 PM

      You're so correct, I know them too and it's so sad. Bernie was not a bad choice until he became the spoiler of this election. So sad to watch them turn and morph into teabagger mentality. And it's not that his ideas are bad, it's that he's become "Bernie the Spoiler". He wants a revolution. That takes time, it isn't an instant gratification kinda thing. Meanwhile we have a country to run in dangerous times. If the Berner's really want to see his ideas come to fruition then they need to vote for the most likely person who would have his ear and respect. And that ain't Trump.

    3. Anonymous8:44 PM

      Honestly, I don't think Bernie could stop this now. He's created a monster that is beyond his control. They will turn on him, too, the second he drops out. Pure mob action, driven by thoughtless rage.

    With hate and false allegations from haters like you, I would advise they vote for Trump, then you can have the hate you love so much.

  17. Thank you for posting the essay by Joanna Castle-Miller. She validates my own experience.

    I know even my own family members would have harsh words for me if I spoke openly about supporting Hillary.

    I am not at a point in my life that the energy needed to defend myself and my choice is available,so I stay silent, or say that I will wait until November.
